India vs West Indies 1st T20I, Highlights: India ended a four-match winless run against the West Indies with a five wickets victory that came on the back of debutant Krunal Pandya’s flourish and Dinesh Karthik’s poised on Sunday. Wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav (3/13) led the Indian bowlers’ fine show to restrict West Indies to 109 for eight after stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma opted to field on a dew-laden Eden Gardens. India responded well with the pacers giving them a fine start after Umesh Yadav dismissed Denesh Ramdin in the third over.

Playing their first match at home without the inspirational Mahendra Singh Dhoni, India were 45 for four in eight overs, leaving their fragile middle order exposed. But the ‘local boy’ Karthik, who leads Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL, stayed calm in his 31 not out from 34 balls (3×4, 1×6) to steer India home with 13 balls to spare.

Hardik’s brother, Krunal, hit the winning boundary off Keemo Paul in the 18th over. The new Pandya smashed 21 off nine balls. This was India’s first win against the World T20 champions since 2014, spanning five matches.

The 21-year-old debutant pacer Oshane Thomas (2/21) gave Windies a flying start, removing both the openers — Rohit Sharma (six) and Shikhar Dhawan (three) — for 16 inside the third over. He bowled a peach of a delivery that clocked 147kph, the extra bounce taking an inside edge off Rohit’s blade to dismiss the stand-in skipper on his happy-hunting ground.

In his next over, he struck once again, rattling Dhawan’s middle-stump. It was a perfect scenario for dashing Delhi wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant as he had ample time in the middle to play a match-winning knock and justify his inclusion in the side.
