20 match between India & West Indies to be played in Kolkata today

Hello and welcome to Sportstarlive's coverage of the first T20I between host India and visitor Windies at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Sunday.

This wasn't Rohit Sharma's night but then Dinesh Karthik has shown in the last IPL that he too can stake claim to a piece of the Eden Gardens.

Opener Shai Hope, who had impressed with an unbeaten 123 and 95 in the ODI series, was the poor victim.

While Darren Bravo is set to play for West Indies for the first time in two years, dashing all-rounder Pollard will don the national jersey for the first time in a year.

However, though short on experience, Brathwaite backed the squad to make their mark, pointing out that the young stars were up for the challenge.

But Pant (1) got out playing a rash shot in his four-ball stay to become skipper Brathwaite's first victim.

The Indian team has been on a roll at home for quite some time and against a weakened Windies have looked invincible for most parts of the series.

The West Indies T20I squad is already depleted by the absence of Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis at the top of the order, with both players pulling out due to personal reasons.

However, Brathwaite said there was no shame in being labelled underdogs, especially against a strong side home-side. Last year July, they stunned the Indians by nine wickets in Jamaica and the previous year, won a one-run thriller in Florida.

While Virat Kohli has been rested ahead of the touch Australian tour, MS Dhoni was dropped from the T20 squad and the upcoming series. Hopefully we can play a couple more games such as the one in Miami [and] the one in Jamaica which we also came out on top of.

Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Krunal Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, K Khaleel Ahmed, Umesh Yadav.

The West Indies team after losing the ODI series 3-1, have called all their big stalwarts for the T20 series.
