That brings us to the end of the first T20I between India and West Indies at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, with the Indians walking away with a hard-earned five-wicket victory on this occasion. The visitors lived up to their expectations of being a tough side in the shortest format, with seamers Oshane Thomas and Carlos Brathwaite giving the Indians a scare at the halfway mark in their chase.
The action now moves to Lucknow, where the two sides face off on Tuesday. The West Indians will hope their batters dish out a better performance to give their bowlers a decent total to defend, and keep the series alive. India, on the other hand, will hope to clinch the series at the Ekana International Cricket Stadium. Do follow our live coverage of that match on Tuesday. For now, it's a goodbye from us.
