Live scorecard India vs West Indies first T20 worldwide

Team India

The two sides will lock horns at Eden Gardens. The reigning World champions will also be without explosive all-rounder Andre Russell and also off-spinner Sunil Narine, both of whom are injured.

All-rounder Krunal Pandya, who has been consistent in IPL over the years, is in the squad and is likely to make his global debut today if India decide to go in with a third spinner.

The Kolkata Knight Riders all-rounder was conspicuous by his absence as a 13-member West Indies squad led by Carlos Brathwaite sweated it out under lights this evening. The shorter the format gets, the better team they become.

Since capturing the T20 World Cup two years ago under the now-discarded Darren Sammy, the Caribbean has struggled, losing 13 of their 23 outings. On the eve of the match, Krunal had a lengthy batting session at the nets and also bowled his orthodox left-arm spin under the watchful eyes of bowling coach Bharat Arun.

Russell had turned out for Nangarhar Leopards in the Afghanistan Premier League game on Octoberr 9, a day before Windies announced the limited-overs squad for the India tour. Hosts India have been dominating them since the start of the series in October.

Tyler Perry reveals he's killing off iconic Madea character
The play was directed and written by Perry, who also starred in the play and portrayed the fictional character. Spanning 10 installments, the Madea film franchise has garnered more than $500 million worldwide.

The visitors have beaten India in five of their seven meetings in T20Is - a comforting stat that should give the new-look West Indies a lot of confidence. Last year July, they stunned the Indians by nine wickets in Jamaica and the previous year, won a one-run thriller in Florida. Team India had repeatedly failed to overcome Brathwaite's men in their last four encounters and the Windies ended the home team's campaign in the 2016 T20I World Cup, defeating them in the semi-finals in Mumbai.

"I know the crowd in Kolkata is always massive so it's very, very loud".

"He anyway plays the ODIs for us regularly, so".

WEST INDIES - Carlos Brathwaite (captain), Fabian Allen, Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Obed McCoy, Keemo Paul, Khary Pierre, Kieron Pollard, Nicholas Pooran, Rovman Powell, Denesh Ramdin, Sherfane Rutherford, Oshane Thomas.
