Earlier in the day, Virat Kohli won the toss and opted to field first. The Windies got off to a decent start but then wickets started falling. The touring Windies was reduced to 122/4 and it seemed they would crumble, but Hetmyer got support from Hope, Powell and Holder to help Windies post a daunting 323 for India to chase.
