They received the first blow in ninth over and after that wicket came at regular intervals. By 76 runs, three of the Windies batsmen were back in the pavilion and tensions brew in the local camp.

Jason Mohammed and Shai Hope did light some hope with a partnership of 49 amongst themselves but a bizarre wicket of Jason saw Windies losing their track and managing only a score of 205 on the board.

Indian spinners were keeping the pressure off by not giving away runs, which was evident by fact that both Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja just leaked 63 runs in 20 overs they sent down.
