Sports Desk – The 1st T20 match was played between India and West Indies at Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground. Playing their first game after a gap of over three weeks, the Men in Blue were clinical in the overall performance whereas West Indies were a pale shadow of themselves in a format they cherish the most. Batting first, Windies were restricted fro 95 for 9 in 20 overs as Indian bowlers inflicted regular breakthroughs. In reply, India lost a few wickets but eventually won by 4 wickets to win the clash.
India was looking dominating after they set an all out to the Indies but Indies were ready to give a tough competition to the Blues and that what they have done. They gave a serious tension to the Indians as the Blues lost 6 wickets in the match but then also West Indies failed to defeat them.
