Kolkata T20I: Karthik, Pandya secure India's nervy win

Adjust Comment Print

The left-armer is familiar with the conditions at the Eden Gardens, having played all his IPL cricket for the Kolkata Knight Riders.

Unlike India, the West Indies suffered early setbacks due to poor batting. It was 4/45 when Pant fell, worse than West Indies who were 4/47, before Karthik and Pandey absorbed the pressure with a 38-run stand and before he and Pandya took India home. Despite losing Manish Pandey towards the end, Krunal's busy little cameo and Karthik's calm presence ensured the win was completed easily. Wicket-keeper batsman MS Dhoni will also not feature in the upcoming series. The contest will be competed at Eden Gardens, in Kolkata.

Wicketkeeper-batsmen Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik have been named in the 12-man squad but the Delhi Daredevils youngster, who had set Indian Premier League 2018 on fire, is all set to don the gloves.
