India vs West Indies 1st T20, Highlights: From West Indies’ perspective too, the next World T20 is two years away, so it’s debatable how much they will gain from this series apart from the fact that their young players will have some valuable international experience.

India vs West Indies 1st T20, Highlights: On the face of it, this three-match T20 international series, starting in Kolkata on Sunday, provides little context.
