Hotstar will avail the online streaming option for the subscribers in India, the United States and the United Kingdom. The contest will be competed at Eden Gardens, in Kolkata.

The Indian team management on Saturday named the 12-member team for the opening Twenty20 global at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Sunday. The burly West Indian, while trying another big hit, miscued his attempt and was caught by Pandey at long-on.

India: Rohit Sharma (Capt), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik, Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, K Khaleel Ahmed, Umesh Yadav, Shahbaz Nadeem.

In 2018, Dhoni, who has also captained India to 50-over World Cup glory in 2011, managed only 245 runs at 27.22 in 17 matches.

The tourists will depend on their famed T20 specialists who play in different leagues across the globe to come good.

Chairman of Selectors, Courtney Browne said: "With the T20 World Cup two years away the process of rebuilding a squad to be a competitive unit for the tournament is critical at this stage".

Unlike India, the West Indies suffered early setbacks due to poor batting. Ashley Nurse will miss both the remainder of the India tour and the Bangladesh tour as he recovers from his injury. The humidity is expected to be high and there will be a bit of dew as well throughout the match.

However, India will be wary of the threat that West Indies poses in the shorter format of the game since they are the reigning T20I champions.

But none of that mattered and the spinners hadn't even came on.

But Brathwaite made India work for their victory, taking 2-11 with the ball to reduce the home side to a nervous 45-4 in reply before Dinesh Karthik saw them home with an unbeaten 31.

The Indian team has been on a roll at home for quite some time and against a weakened Windies have looked invincible for most parts of the series.
