Earlier in the match, Kieron Pollard won the toss and invited the Indians to bat first. The move didn’t prove to be much fruitful as the home side got off to a flier. Nevertheless, dew is expected to play a role later in the match and the Windies batsmen are very well capable of chasing down any target.
