Indian fans have always backed their team and when it plays at home, no other team stands a chance to get the support. Similar were the scene at the Eden Gardens where India played West Indies in the warm-up game of the World T20.
Chasing India’s 185/5, West Indies were brisk with openers Johnson Charles and Chris Gayle. The danger that Gayle can inflict if he stays for long at the crease is known by most of the teams. Therefore, MS Dhoni decided to hand the ball to Jasprit Bumrah, a bowler who has always given him the breakthrough. And he did it again.
Gayle tried his forward push but he missed it and lost his stumps. Bumrah and India didn’t celebrate much. But the fans at Eden Gardens erupted in a collective roar.
