India vs West Indies
The Windies have never played a T20I bilateral series in India before. Yet, for the three-match series opener against the hosts, the visitors pick up right from where they’d signed off on their last trip to this part of the world.
Eden Gardens has been a witness to one of the finest pain-relieving memories in West Indies’ recent history. On Sunday, they return to the scene of their stunning heist in 2016, under the leadership of the man who became a household name that April evening, Carlos Brathwaite.
Without any disrespect towards their short-lived Test and ODI resurgence over the last couple of months, at home and on this tour respectively, if Windies were to pose any real threat to India on this tour all bets would have been on the shortest format. That despite the fact that their recent run in T20 internationals doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence.
All three of them made waves during the CPL and are talked about as the most exciting prospects to emerge from the motley group of islands. They might be missing Gayle, Narine, Russell, Bravo & co, but when it comes to T20s, they aren’t any mugs. There’s always Pollard to pep up any middle-order, junior Bravo is back and so is Denesh Ramdin and not to forget the captain himself – remember his four sixes off Ben Stokes at this very ground?
