India won the toss and elected to field first and so west indies opener Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis come to the crease to open the innings for west indies. Indian skipper Virat Kohli was knowing that batting first will be difficult for the batsman as it was wet pitch and so bowlers will have a major impact at this situation.

Chris Gayle was looking frustrated because he can't able to hit a boundary. On the other side, Evin Lewis was hitting a boundary in the bowling of Khaleel Ahmed and reached a score of 38 runs. Chris gayle back to the pavilion in the bowling of Kuldeep Yadav which gave an early strike to team India for enjoyment.
