Krunal pulls a short ball towards fine-leg, where Oshane saves a couple of runs with a dive. Krunal has recovered after he underwent surgery for shoulder tear. This is the format the Windies enjoy the most and the hosts can not afford to get casual even once during the series.

India vs West Indies match will be aired on Star Sports Network, some of the channels being Star 1, Star 1 HD, Star 1 Hindi, etc. The India-West Indies live streaming will take place on Hotstar.

After a stupendous ODI series win, Rohit Sharma will take over the Indian leadership role from Virat Kohli in the T20I series which will kick-start on Sunday at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Dhoni's absence gives way to Rishabh Pant, the new wicketkeeper-batsman, who is making big news with his recent performances.

Chief selector MSK Prasad also said that it was not the end of the road for Dhoni in T20Is.

West Indies have endured a hard tour, losing both Tests inside three days and then going down 3-1 in the subsequent one-day series.

The host pointed out that this is in dispute. "Guess what? You don't", he said in the Axios interview . Constitutional scholars are questioning whether changes could be made without Congress.

Fans were unhappy with the team India's captain Virat Kohli's decision to not send MS Dhoni out to bat which would have seen him score 10,000 ODI runs after he was just a one-run away from reaching the milestone. Who can forget that his four consecutive sixes to Ben Stokes, which led the Windies to win the World Cup 2016.

Star all-rounder Andre Russell was forced to skip the West Indies team's practice session on the eve of their first T20I against India after missing a connecting flight from Dubai.

The stats also favour the World T20 holders who have a five-two record from eight exchanges from 2009-17. The squad has seven first-timers for the Windies in this format at the global level; all of whom would have represented the Windies B and A for tours of Canada and England.

Unlike India, the West Indies suffered early setbacks due to poor batting.

This wasn't Rohit Sharma's night but then Dinesh Karthik has shown in the last IPL that he too can stake claim to a piece of the Eden Gardens.
