West Indies and India played out one of the most exciting matches in Twenty20 history in the first game on 27 August.

India, who came into the clash ahead of their opponents in the ICC T20 rankings, started poorly, with their bowlers giving away runs like they were candy. That West Indies managed to put up 245 on the board showed just how bad the Indian bowlers were on the day.

No bowler could contain the opposition batsmen with all of them barring off-spinner R Ashwin going for more than 10 runs an over. Stuart Binny must be wondering why he bowled, giving away 32 runs in his solitary over with Evin Lewis hitting five sixes off him, in what was the joint second-highest runs conceded in T20 history.

Chasing 246 to win, the Indian batsmen fell just one run short. K L Rahul, playing in only his fourth T20 match, led the chase, scoring 110 off 51 balls. He took just 46 balls for his ton, the second fastest in history, one behind South Africa's Richard Levi who took 45 balls.

With two runs to get off the last ball, India skipper M S Dhoni fell to Dwayne Bravo, but it was a match that could have gone either way. India are expected to make changes for the second game, with Binny and Ajinkya Rahane likely to be dropped. Left-handed batsman Shikhar Dhawan and pace-bowler Umesh Yadav are expected to play.

The current T20 champions, West Indies, showed the world once again why they are such a force to reckon with in the shorter formats of the game. That they won was thanks to the brilliance of three players — Johnson Charles, Evin Lewis and Dwayne Bravo.

Evin Lewis in particular was impressive, scoring his maiden T20 hundred in only his second game. Lewis who scored his 100 off just 48 balls, the fifth fastest in T20 history, hit the Indian bowlers to all parts of the ground, with his knock consisting of five fours and nine huge sixes.

On the bowling front, Bravo once again showed his immense value in the death overs. India needed only seven runs in the final over, and Bravo bowled West Indies to a win, outfoxing arguably the best finisher in the game, Dhoni.

West Indies are not expected to make any changes to their side and will go into the clash with the same XI that took the field on 27 August.
