Team India avoided a scare on Saturday, and edged out the Windies in the 1st T20 at Lauderhill, to take a 1-0 lead in the 3 match series. Virat Kohli's decision to bowl first proved right, as a collective bowling effort restricted the hosts to 95/9. 9th time that India had restricted its opponent to below 100 in T20I. But Windies made sure it wasn't a comfortable chase for India. Wickets at regular intervals reduced the men in blue to 88/6. But since it was a modest total, India chased it down with 4 wickets to spare.
