IND vs WI 1st T20I Highlights: Following a 68-run victory against West Indies in the opening Twenty20 International at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Trinidad on Friday, India seized a 1-0 series lead. The series consists of five matches. West Indies were held to a score of 122 for eight in their 20 overs of batting while trying to reach a goal of 191.

Taking two wickets apiece for India were Ravi Bishnoi, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Arshdeep Singh. In the first ODI against the West Indies, India reached 190 for six thanks to contributions from Dinesh Karthik and Rohit Sharma. Rohit Sharma earlier led the pack with a magnificent 64.

Meanwhile, in the first ODI against the West Indies, Dinesh Karthik contributed with an unbroken score to help India reach 190 for 6. When India was given the chance to bat, Rohit and Suryakumar Yadav got things going well. Suryakumar and Shreyas Iyer were both lost by India quickly after each other, giving the victory to West Indies. Prior to Karthik’s counterattack, India continued losing wickets at regular intervals, but he eventually helped India reach a substantial score.

They were aware that the pitch’s characteristics would make things difficult, according to Rohit Sharma, the captain of the winning Indian team. He said that they had also given consideration to the requirement for a batter with an eye-in to continue. He said that he truly believed this wasn’t a pitch where you could achieve 170/180, but finally they were able to reach beyond the par score, which is an amazing team effort.

According to Sharma, there are three aspects of the game that they want to attempt and enhance. They have also assigned specific tasks to specific players, and today it seemed to work out nicely.

West Indies: Shamarh Brooks, Shimron Hetmyer, Odean Smith, Kyle Mayers, Keemo Paul, Nicholas Pooran (capt & wk), Rovman Powell, Jason Holder, Obed McCoy, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph

India: Rohit Sharma (capt), Rishabh Pant (wk), Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya (vice-capt), Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravi Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, R Ashwin, Arshdeep Singh
