India: TV: Ten 3, Ten 1 HD, Sony Six, Sony Six HD.

But they reckoned without Lewis, who took three successive fours of Shami's first over and had raced to 46 from 22 by the time Shami and Kohli's miscommunication resulted in a chance going to ground.

Riding high after quashing West Indies in five-match ODI series 3-1, India will aim to continue with the same zeal as they face the hosts in one-off Twenty20 global clash at Sabina Park on Sunday. Windies are the World Champions in this format for a reason. It's hard to switch (players) for just one game.

The One-off T20 will start today at 9.00PM.

IST: West Indies win toss, opt to bowl.

India too looks a strong side on paper and will be high on confidence after their ODI series win.

This match will be a tough match for Indian Team because this time Gayle joined the T20 team and they equally balanced to our Indian team. Brathwaite, all-rounder Kieron Pollard, and Marlon Samuels are the other significant additions for the side in the striking section, which will appear to go firm at the Indian bowlers.

Taylor, who opened the bowling along with Samuel Badree, finished with two for 31, and Williams two for 42.

Asked to bat first, India were off to a good start with skipper Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan producing an opening stand of 64 runs in 33 balls.

Kohli may also make some changes in the playing XI with the kind of depth India has got in their squad.

Gayle's appearance at his home ground of Sabina Park will be his first Twenty20 global appearance since last April's World T20 final victory over England, but the 37-year-old has revealed he has no plans to retire.
