India Vs West Indies, one off T20I: India knew that this West Indies is different from what they faced in ODIs. The return of Gayle, Narine, Pollard and the others. And the result of the match the highlights the fact. The snapshot review of the match:
- India started off on a good note when Virat Kohli (39) started an all round attack on the West Indian Bowlers. India was 64/0 in 5.1 overs when the captain fell. Soon Dhawan (23) also returned back.
- After this, Dinesh Kartik (48) and Pant (38) tried building up, but after that the procession started as India which once looked to score more than 220 , was reduced at 190. Credit to the bowlers and poor shot selection by the batsmen.
- 191 was never a big score for this West Indian batting and Lewis (125 off 62 balls) showed why. After getting lifelines in form of drops, he capitalised on it and scored, what is the highest individual score in the t20I history, while chasing.
- If a team, while chasing a big score like 191, chases it with 9 balls to spare, it tells a lot about the magnificence of the victory. India feilding was also not at par.
