Match Tied (Royal Challengers Bangalore win one-over eliminator)
West Indies' inexplicable show with the bat in the opening T20I game against India was overshadowed by their off-color bowling performance. The West Indian bowling line-up was proved ineffective in front of the quality Indian batting line-up.
Defending the target of 208, the West Indian bowlers could not halt the flow from the other end. Virat Kohli, the Indian captain, was the man of the show as he plundered the inexperienced bowlers all over the park in his innings of 94 runs.
Sheldon Cottrell was the pick of the Caribbean bowler as he conceded only 24 runs in his 4 overs and picked up 1 wicket.
The rest of the bowling line-up failed miserably against the quality Indian batting line-up. India chased the mammoth total with 8 balls remaining. West Indies has to revamp its bowling strategies if they want to give a tough time to this dominant Indian team at their own backyard.
