Kuldeep Yadav is in for a chat. He starts by praising the fast bowlers, as they set the tone with the early wickets. Informs that the ball was spinning a bit and they tries to focus on their lengths. Mentions that they were controlling their speed as well as the wind was too much. Adds that he has been working on his rhythm in the past two years and is glad that it is coming out really well for him now. States that he is focusing more on lengths, rather than picking wickets, especially in the white-ball format. He kept mixing his pace, lengths and variations which benefitted him the most.
As far as West Indies are concerned, it has been a disappointing batting effort from them. Only 3 batters managed to reach two figures showing the sorry state of affairs with the bat for the hosts. After Rohit Sharma called it right and inserted them into bat, they were rocked early as they lost Kyle Mayers in the third over. Despite the early loss, Brandon King and Alick Athanaze were positive in their approach but were unable to carry on. Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer then got together and started a rebuilding job for the hosts. However, once Hetmyer was dismissed, it all went downhill for them. They simply surrendered themselves to the trial by spin from India. Shai Hope fought a lone fight during his 43-run knock but it was not enough to get his side anywhere close to a respectable total.
Wow, this has been a clinical effort by the Indian bowlers! They have rolled over West Indies for a paltry total of 114 and by doing so, they have vindicated their skipper’s decision to bowl first. First up, Rohit Sharma’s move to hand Hardik Pandya the new ball paid off as the all-rounder removed Kyle Mayers in his second over. The visitors did seem to lose their lines and lengths post that early wicket and were taken to the cleaners by Brandon King and Alick Athanaze. However, the debutant Mukesh Kumar stuck at it and was rewarded with the wicket of Athanaze. From the other end, Shardul Thakur backed it up and got rid of the other set batter in the form of King. Introduced in the 12th over, Ravindra Jadeja was expensive in his first two overs but never looked back after making Shimron Hetmyer his first victim. He kept attacking the stumps and piled misery on West Indies along with Kuldeep Yadav. The spin duo accounted for the last 7 wickets and skittled out the hosts in 23 overs.
22.6 overs (0 Run) OUT! CAUGHT! JOB DONE! Kuldeep Yadav picks up his fourth wicket in no time and West Indies have been bundled out for 114 runs. It is flatter, sliding down leg. Jayden Seales clips it towards leg slip. Hardik Pandya there takes a solid catch.
22.5 overs (0 Run) Tossed up, on off, Jayden Seales prods forward to keep it out.
22.4 overs (0 Run) Shorter on off, Jayden Seales defends from the crease.
22.3 overs (0 Run) OUT! LBW! Another one bites the dust! Kuldeep Yadav strikes yet again and gets the big fish this time! Gives yhe ball air nicely, full on middle, from over the wicket, Shai Hope looks to be innovative in search of quick runs. Pulls out the reverse sweep but misses it altogether. Gets trapped right in front of the stumps and the umpire has no hesitation in raising his finger. Shai Hope goes for the review, more in hope though. The UltraEdge shows no bat and wickets is umpire’s call on Ball Tracking. Shai Hope departs now and goes with him, the hopes of West Indies.
22.2 overs (0 Run) Shorter and around leg, Shai Hope clips it off the back foot to deep mid-wicket but refuses the single.
22.1 overs (0 Run) Drifts on the pads, Shai Hope tries to clip it away but misses and wears it on the front pad.

21.5 overs (1 Run) Tossed up, on off, Shai Hope uses his feet and drives it towards deep cover for one.
21.4 overs (0 Run) Flatter and just outside off, the ball keeps low and Shai Hope does well to keep it out on the off side.

Gudakesh Motie is the new man in.
20.4 overs (0 Run) OUT! LBW! A successful review by India and Kuldeep Yadav has his second! Bowls the googly this time, short and turning in, on middle, Yannic Cariah moves to the off side to defend but does not read the googly. Gets trapped right in front of the stumps. A confident appeal for LBW but the finger stays down. India think they have got their man and Rohit Sharma goes for the review. A clear gap between bat and pad and it is three reds on Ball Tracking. The on-field decision is overturned and West Indies’ slide continues as they lose their 8th now.
20.3 overs (0 Run) Flighted, full and turning away, outside off, Yannic Cariah drives it to extra cover for a dot.
