West Indies beat India by nine wickets in one-off T20

With some good knocks in the Caribbean tour Dinesh Karthik has raised his claim for a spot for the no.4 slot in the Indian squad

West Indies vs India T20 is set to begin at 10:30 am local time, 21:00 pm IST.

West Indies skipper Carlos Brathwaite won the toss and elected to field against India in the one-off Twenty 20 worldwide at Sabina Park on Sunday.

Only Australians Aaron Finch (156) and Glenn Maxwell (145 not out) have recorded higher scores.

The last time that Gayle played for West indies in a T20 worldwide was when they beat England to lift the World T20 in 2016 and Cricket West Indies chairman of selectors Courtney Browne was delighted to have him back on board.

West Indies are reigning world champions with the likes of Gayle, Marlon Samuels, Sunil Narine and Samuel Badree still a part of the current squad led by their World T20 hero Carlos Brathwaite.

West Indies might have become easy-beats in test cricket, but they showed on Sunday they are a different in the shortest version of the sport, especially with the bat.

West Indies captain Carlos Brathwaite revealed he had offered his batsmen a sweetener. I gave an incentive that whoever gets a fifty gets half my match fee.

"Yesterday we asked for the batters to go out and express themselves", Brathwaite said. The crowds came out in big numbers and the smile on their faces does it for us. We aren't carrying any baggages (from the ODI series loss) and it is now about taking the positives and using them well.

The Men in Blue clinched the five-match ODI series 3-1 against West Indies after winning the fifth and final ODI by 8 wickets to register third consecutive ODI series victory against the home side.

When will the India vs West Indies 2017, T20, India vs West Indies cricket game be played?
