WI-W vs IN-W Dream11 : Series within India’s sights with a second win on the bounce giving them an unassailable lead.
India’s complete stronghold and dominance over West Indies was made clearly and blatantly in the first T20 of the three match series held earlier today. The side were thumped, routed and made light work of as a clearly Indian unit continued to reign supreme over them in white ball cricket to take a crucial 1-0 lead in the series.
After winning the ODI series 2-1, the visitors looked to continue their tighthold over West Indies in white ball cricket come the shortest format of the game and a pinch perfect performance by them saw them do so as well. It was a comprehensive and clinical showing from the side yesterday, one which gave nothing away to the West Indians who were never able to find any leeway to make any kind of headway into the encounter.
Batting first on a wicket which was said to be a tricky one to play your shots on, India ripped apart the preconceived notion to score a sublime 185 runs as the entire top-order stood up in tandem to short the home side’s work with the ball. And the bowling effort was equally pristine as India kept striking at regular intervals to leave West Indies famished at 101 and maraud their way to a 101 run win.
Now as the sides get ready to play their second match of the series within the space of a day, West Indies know they need to address their predicaments at the earliest if they are to challenge India on a level footing. Given the way matches have transpired between these two sides recently, India are firm favourites to win this one as well and with it seal the series in their favour with a match to spare.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
India showed yesterday that this is a wicket to come out to bat first on, a track which will allow you to hit your shots and crunch the ball to the fence if you are willing to show application and technique. There’s something in it for everyone with the batters thriving in the first part before the ball comes out and starts favouring the players who are willing to take pace off the ball to make chasing a tepid task.
