West Indies won the toss and invited India to bat first in the match. Pacer Alzarri Joseph made his T20I debut for West Indies and Shimron Hetmyer made his comeback to the side.
Batting first, India captain Rohit Sharma played brilliantly and he scored 64 runs off 44 balls, including 7 fours and 2 sixes, before being dismissed by Jason Holder.
Suryakumar Yadav also made a decent contribution but other batters, including Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya failed to make any major contributions.
