“Due to circumstances beyond CWI’s control, there have been significant delays in crucial team luggage arriving into St Kitts from Trinidad.

West Indies had suffered a disappointing whitewash in the ODI series. West Indies also saw a 3-run loss against India in the opening clash. Jason Holder’s absence did have a big toll in the first ODI. While in the 2nd ODI, despite performing well, West Indies were quite disappointed after not being able to finish off games. In the opening clash of the T20I series, the home side was dominated and India had picked up a comprehensive 68-run win. The hosts struggled with the bat as wickets fell in quick succession.

The visitors got a major boost as Rohit Sharma made his return to action and lead the Men in Blue from the front. They were without their permanent captain in the ODI series and in his absence Shikhar Dhawan was leading the visiting team. India had an all-round batting effort that helped them seal the series in the 2nd ODI. In a rain-marred final clash, the Men In Blue managed to get the win and clean swept Windies.

While, in the 1st T20I, the Men in Blue were brilliant with the ball Rohit Sharma led the pack with a brilliant 64 while Dinesh Karthik chipped up with an unbeaten 41 runs to take India to 190 for six after the end of stipulated 20 overs.
