India vs West Indies 1st T20I Highlights: Indian skipper Virat Kohli led his side to a thumping six-wicket win.
India win by six wickets
Virat Kohli smashed an unbeaten 94 to help his side to a thumping six-wicket win in the first T20I in Hyderabad.
WICKET! Stunning catch from Kieron Pollard as Shreyas Iyer tried to hit the ball for a big hit, but is caught in mid-air by the bowler. IND 193/4
Kohli on fire!
Virat Kohli is on fire at the moment. He is leading this run chase. India need 16 to win off 14.
Rishabh Pant tries to go for another big one, but it is one shot too many. The ball goes straight into the hands of the fielder. IND 178/3
Kohli vs Kesrick
Virat Kohli has smashed a four and a six off Kesirck Williams. The captain has found his groove back in the innings. He even imitated Williams' celebrations after the six. Hilarious!
Virat Kohli hammers a massive six off Jason Holder. He follows it up with a boundary. He brings up his half century, and takes India past 150-run mark.
KL Rahul tries to make it two sixes in two balls, but his shot ended in the safe hands of Kieron Pollard in the deep. Pierre gets a wicket. IND 130/2
The first no ball signalled by the umpire and it is Kesrick Williams who is the first player to get a no ball called from the TV Umpire. Nothing comes off in the free hit. He brings up his half century. IND 115/1 in 12.4 overs
Acceleration - the need of the hour
India are 98/1 after 11.2 overs. The skipper and KL Rahul in the middle. But the required rate is climbing. India need 110 runs in 52 balls.
And the captain delivers. 10 runs in next two balls - a six and a four. Kohli is upset about not being given a no ball for height on the last delivery.
This has been a tremendous partnership between KL Rahul and Virat Kohli. Both the players are dealing in boundaries, and helping their side to keep momentum in the chase. 8 overs gone, IND 76/1
Stat Attack: Rohit Sharma
· Consecutive dismissals in single-digit score for Rohit in T20Is.
· 1st wicket in T20Is for Pierre after 3 wicketless intervening innings.
o His last T20I wicket came in November 2018 vs India at Lucknow.
o All of his 3 T20I wickets have come against India and in India.
Khary Pierre strikes for West Indies and it is the huge wicket of Rohit Sharma. He went for the big shot but it was not strong enough and Shimron Hetmyer completed an easy catch. India 33/1
Boundaries for Rahul
A late cut, an inside edge through fine leg and a punch off the back foot through point - All three different shots but all of them raced to the boundary as KL Rahul started his innings quite well. 2 overs gone and India are 17/0
Good start for Sheldon Cottrell as he conceded just four runs in the first over but he did give a couple of loose deliveries which were not utilised properly by the batsmen. IND 4/0
