The victorious Indian captain, Rohit Sharma says they knew the nature of the pitch wasn’t going to be easy. Says that they also focused on how a batter who had his eye-in needed to go on. Mentions that he really thought this isn’t a pitch where you get 170/180 but eventually they were able to get above the par score which is an incredible team effort. Mentions there are three facets of the game, and they want to try and improve all three of them. Adds that they have also given certain roles to certain players and it did work out well today. All in all, it was a great effort and they will continue to do that. Says that everything relies on the pitch and sometimes they need to start on the back foot. Ends by saying it is always fun to play in this country and is glad to provide them with some entertaining cricket.
West Indies skipper, Nicholas Pooran says that they are disappointed with their batting performance. Adds that the par score was around 150 and the penalty cost them a few extra runs in the death overs which made it more difficult. Mentions that they tend to get starts with the bat but they need to be able to go on and get big scores. Says that the spinners bowled well and they wanted to restrict the opposition to around 175 but it did not happen.
Dinesh Karthik (41* off 19) wins the Man of the Match award for his brisk innings. He starts by saying the wicket was a bit sticky and it wasn’t easy initially. Says he is really happy with his new role, but one can really find it difficult to remain consistent. Adds that there are a lot of things that you need to be aware of that comes with a little bit of practice.
The presentation ceremony…
Earlier in the game, Nicholas Pooran won the toss and opted to bowl first and that decision has proven to be the wrong one. West Indies were decent with the ball in Powerplay but Rohit Sharma managed to stay on the crease and get useful runs for his side. Towards the fag end of the innings, Dinesh Karthik took advantage of some sloppy bowling and managed to power the visitors to a big score. Obed McCoy was brilliant for the hosts with the ball but he too went for some stick in the end. Having a steep target to chase, West Indies’ innings never got any momentum. Wickets fell at regular intervals with not a single batter crossing the 30-run mark. India read the conditions well and all three of their spinners were outstanding. The pacers too supported them well and it was an easy victory in the end for the visitors. Stay tuned for the presentation.
India will be ecstatic with the start they have got in the T20I series and they have been clinical with both bat and ball. The opening bowlers received a bit of stick in their first overs but once Arshdeep Singh got rid of Mayers, India had the opening. After this, the spin duo of Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin controlled play and got wickets as well. In the second half of the innings, Ravi Bishnoi bowled well and got a couple of wickets with the pacers closing out the match with ease. Everyone apart from Hardik Pandya got into the wickets column and they will be happy with this win.
West Indies knew that 191 runs wouldn’t be one bit easy to get but this has been a very disappointing batting display from them. The hosts had to attack from the start and Kyle Mayers and Shamarh Brooks did just that but it only lasted for a couple of overs. Mayers was overaggressive and gave away his wicket. After the first wicket went down, no one really tried to anchor the innings and everyone just went hard and then back to the pavilion. Almost everyone got into double digits but there was no big score and while chasing a big score, one needs partnerships which were absent. They will now look to bounce back in the 2nd game of the series.
What a dominant performance from India! The visitors have outclassed the hosts in every department in this game and have taken a well-deserved 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

15.4 overs (0 Run) Wild swing! This is floated up well outside off and it is the googly. Keemo Paul gets low and looks to slog it away but he goes a bit too hard at it and misses. Pant takes off the bails and seems interested. Rishabh Pant from behind the sticks pleads to the square leg umpire and it is taken upstairs. The replay shows that Paul has his back leg rooted just inside the crease so it will be NOT OUT.
15.4 overs (1 Run) NOT OUT! Keemo Paul reacts quickly to get back in the crease. Nonetheless, it was a valiant effort by Pant behind the sticks. Ravi Bishnoi sess the batter charge down the track and fires it way down leg. Rishabh Pant moves to his left, but as soon as he gathers the ball, he looses his footing but still manages to get the bails off with a dive towards the stumps. This could be close. The umpire takes it upstairs and it is confirmed that Paul is safe. The umpire though signals a wide.
Is that stumped? The square leg umpire has gone upstairs for a stumping review. On the first replay, it looks like Keemo Paul is back in. The third umpire checks it a couple of more times to make sure and is pretty happy with it. The decision on the big screen is NOT OUT!
15.3 overs (0 Run) Tossed up, on middle and leg. Paul looks to sweep it away but misses. It brushes off his pads.
