Buoyed by the return of regular skipper Virat Kohli to the T20 team, the India cricket team are taking on West Indies in the first of a three-match T20 series at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad today.
Given the inexperience of their bowlers, the Windies cricket team might find it daunting to get rid of India’s top four — Rohit sharma, K L Rahul, Kohli and Shreyas Iyer — early in the match. If the recent form of both sides, West Indies could have put up their best show to be able to get off to a winning start against India, an opponent against whom they have lost each of their last six T20Is, including the three they hosted only four months ago.
