Virat Kohli won the toss and decided to bowl first. Indian bowlers had a gala time as wickets kept tumbling for Windies.Navdeep Saini had a dream debut as he picked three wickets leaking just 17 runs in his four overs. West Indies managed to post 96-run target for India. For Windies, Kieron Pollard scored 49 runs to take his team to a fighting total on such wicket.

While chasing, India, too, had a shaky start as Dhawan fell early, and Rohit and Rishabh Pant followed him soon, but the low total made the chase easy for India despite the team losing Kohli, Manish Pandey and Krunal Pandya.

India vs West Indies head to head in T20Is

India and the West Indies have faced each another for a total of 11 times. Both the teams equal the score 5-5.

Here are the playing 11 prediction of both the teams

India playing 11: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar/Khaleel Ahmed, Navdeep Saini, Krunal Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar
 
West Indies playing 11: John Campbell, Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicolas Pooran, Kieron Pollard, Carlos Brathwaite (c), Keemo Paul, Sunil Narine, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Rovman Powell

Here are the squads of both the teams

West Indies squad: John Campbell, Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicolas Pooran, Kieron Pollard, Rovman Powell, Carlos Brathwaite (c), Keemo Paul, Sunil Narine, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Anthony Bramble, Andre Russell, Khary Pierre.
 
India squad: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant, Krunal Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Washington Sundar, Rahul Chahar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini.

Can Rishabh Pant make up to selectors expectation?

From this tour onwards, Rishabh Pant will have more responsibility on his shoulders with the selectors backing him as the number one wicketkeeper in all formats amid little clarity over the future of MS Dhoni.

Is Rohit-Virat rift rumours make any impact?

Rohit was the top-scorer in the World Cup, with a record five hundreds, and would be keen to carry that form amid the off-field drama of a speculated rift with Kohli, who has categorically denied any differences with his deputy.

Team India news

Spin all-rounder Washington Sundar and pacers Khaleel Ahmed and Deepak Chahar are also back in the T20 squad while speedster Navdeep Saini and Deepak's brother Rahul are in line to make their India debut. With Rohit Sharma and a fit-again Shikhar Dhawan set to open, the number four spot seems likely to be occupied by K L Rahul, who has fond memories of the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium, having scored an unbeaten 110 in his last innings here almost three years ago.

Preview

India cricket team will start prepararing for T20I World Cup, when they take on Windies cricket team in first T20 International (T20I) match of three-match series at Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill in Florida, USA. Before leaving for Caribbean Islands, India captain Virat Kohli pointed out, the main objective of the T20s and the subsequent ODI series against the West Indies is to try out fringe players who are on selectors' mind. Kohli was expected to be rested for the limited-overs leg of the tour but a full-strength squad has been picked barring the absence of star pacer Jasprit Bumrah who will join the side ahead of the Test series beginning August 22. All-rounder Hardik Pandya has been rested for the entire tour. However, West Indies were jolted with major setback as their star all-rounder Andre Russell was ruled out from first of the three match T20 series due to injury.
 
It will be a crucial couple of weeks for Shreyas Iyer and Manish Pandey, who are back in the mix after being sidelined from India's ICC cricket world cup plans. Pandey last played for India in November 2019 and Iyer in February 2018. With India looking to solidify their brittle middle-order in ODIs, both batsmen have a good opportunity to make their case in the coming six games. Both Pandey and Iyer, who were part of the recently-concluded A series in the Caribbean, come into the senior team with runs under their belt.
