IND vs WI, 1st T20I Live Updates: India got off to a strong start against West Indies with openers Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav. After two overs, India were 20 for the loss of no wicket. Earlier, West Indies won the toss and elected to bowl against India in the first T20I of the five-match series at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Trinidad. India captain Rohit Sharma, his new opening partner Rishabh Pant and all-rounder Hardik Pandya are back in the playing XI while young leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi and left-arm seamer Arshdeep singh have also got a look-in. After sweeping the ODI series 3-0, the Indian team will now hope for a similar outcome in the T20Is. West Indies, on the other hand, will also welcome back star batter Shimron Hetmyer, who had missed the ODI games due to some fitness concerns. For long, T20 cricket has been the West Indies strongest suit, and they will surely back themselves to pull off an upset. (LIVE SCORECARD)
