Besides Rohit, Shikhar Dhawan (3), KL Rahul (16), Rishabh Pant (1), and Manish Pandey (19) could not perform with the bat.
Like the Nidahas Trophy 2018 final, Dinesh Karthik played a calculated 34-ball 31 and strung together an unbeaten 27-run partnership with Krunal Pandya, helping India to have a winning start to the T20I series.
On the bowling front, Kuldeep Yadav, adjudged man of the match, ended the match with figures of 3/13 from his four overs, while left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed (1/16) and debutant Krunal Pandya (1/15) were economical.
The Windies, on the other hand, would be desperate to notch up a win against the hosts. The return of big names such as Kieran Pollard and Darren Bravo failed to make any significant impact as they produced yet another a below-par batting effort.
Carlos Braithwaite (2/11) was impressive with the ball but the captain also needs to inspire his team with some significant contributions with the bat.
Young pacer Oshane Thomas (2/21), who made his debut in Kolkata, troubled the Indian openers with his pace upfront but he needs support from the likes of Keemo Paul and others.
