- India vs West Indies 2019 1st T20I
207/5 (20.0 ov)
209/4 (18.4 ov)
India won by 6 wickets
Player of the match:
Right, that's it from us here at Sportskeeda! Do join us for the 2nd T20I between India and the West Indies on Sunday as the tourists look to even things up and set up a mouth-watering finale.
Till then, this is Shashwat Kumar signing off! Goodbye and goodnight!
After a titanic encounter, India surge ahead in the 3-match series courtesy an exceptional innings by Virat Kohli. West Indies, meanwhile, would be ruing their bowling at the death, especially considering the strong position they found themselves in for large swathes of the contest.
Yet, a game of such proportions is certain to light up the rest of the series, in light of the needle both sides generated and the way they got under the other's skin.
India hunt down 208 with ease!
India started off brightly before their chase was jolted by Pierre, when he got the better of Rohit. However, Rahul and Kohli kept the scoreboard ticking with the former looking after the increasing required run rate. Once Rahul departed though, Kohli took it upon himself as he conjured one of the most sensational T20I innings in recent memory. And, the fire in his belly was, in no uncertain terms, ignited by the West Indians, who eventually had to bear the brunt of it.
Apart from the captain, Pant also popped up with a handy knock to ensure that Kohli was allowed the requisite support to sprinkle his magic and get his side over the line.
Kohli finishes it off in style!
Kohli plants his front foot again and carves a length delivery over long-off for another six to finish off the game. Marvellous. Simply marvellous by the Indian skipper.
18.4 SIX! Kesrick Williams to Virat Kohli. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over deep extra cover for 6 runs.
18.3 Kesrick Williams to Virat Kohli. Half volley, outside off stump down the track driving, to deep extra cover for 2 runs, fielded by Holder.
Oh goodness gracious! Kohli pulls of another incredible shot!
Kohli is putting on a clinic here and this time, he frees his arms to sumptuously loft a length delivery over the cover region for six. Kohli has turned the screw magnificently tonight.
18.2 SIX! Kesrick Williams to Virat Kohli. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over deep extra cover for 6 runs.
18.1 Kesrick Williams to Virat Kohli. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot flick, to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Lewis.
Right then! Gear up for Kohli vs Kesrick: Part II
My word! Pollard has just pulled off an absolute stunner!
Shreyas mistimes a pull shot and the ball arrows towards Pollard. The bowler reacts quickly and throws out a large set of palms before snaffling up the opportunity. Wow, that was a catch and a half! Is there going to be a twist in the tale though? Surely not!
1 1wd 6 1 1lb 1 W
IND: 193/4(RR 10.72)
17.6 OUT! Caught & Bowled. Kieron Pollard to Shreyas Iyer. Leg cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to silly mid off, by Pollard.
17.5 Kieron Pollard to Virat Kohli. Back of a length, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed to long off for 1 run, fielded by Holder.
And, to add to the drama, we have a review for an LBW!
Shreyas walks across his stumps and tries to flick the ball into the leg-side. But, he misses it altogether and the ball strikes the pads. Pollard goes up but the umpire is unmoved. West Indies go for the review, although it looks more in desperation than hope. Replays show that the ball is missing the stumps entirely.
17.4 APPEAL! Kieron Pollard to Shreyas Iyer. Length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, hit pad to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Simmons, appeal made for L.B.W.
17.3 Kieron Pollard to Virat Kohli. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to short mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Pollard.
Kohli is finishing it off in style!
Kohli telegraphs a slower delivery and brings his whippy wrists into play. The bottom hand takes over and he shovels it over mid-wicket for six.
17.2 SIX! Kieron Pollard to Virat Kohli. Slower length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.
17.2 Wide Kieron Pollard to Virat Kohli. Leg cutter length ball, down leg side on the front foot Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Ramdin.
17.1 Kieron Pollard to Shreyas Iyer. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Hetmyer.
Right! Pollard comes into the attack!
Is this a masterstroke or a simple case of a miscalculation? Remember that Hayden Walsh Jr sitll has a couple of overs left. Let's see how this unfolds.
An extremely tidy and timely over by Cottrell as he concedes only 5 runs. More importantly though, he got the wicket of Pant, meaning that India have a new batsman at the crease. However, the game still rests with the hosts, with them needing 26 runs off 18 deliveries.

IND: 182/3(RR 10.71)
16.6 Sheldon Cottrell to Shreyas Iyer. Off cutter length ball, down leg side backing away working, to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Lewis.
16.5 Sheldon Cottrell to Shreyas Iyer. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, to mid wicket for 2 runs, overthrow by Cottrell, fielded by Walsh.
16.4 Sheldon Cottrell to Shreyas Iyer. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot driving, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Pollard.
16.3 Sheldon Cottrell to Virat Kohli. Length ball, to leg on the front foot Steer, to backward point for 1 run, fielded by Walsh.
Pant perishes for the cause!
Cottrell bowls a slower delivery on a length and Pant tries to smash it into oblivion. However, the batsman is into his shot too early and he completely miscues his shot. The ball goes high up in the air towards long-off where Holder completes the catch. Is it a case of 'too little too late' for the West Indies?
16.2 OUT! Caught. Sheldon Cottrell to Rishabh Pant. Leg cutter length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Holder.
