India began their World T20 campaign with a win over West Indies in the warm-up game at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Thursday. Batting first, India posted 185/5, thanks to Rohit Sharma’s unbeaten 57-ball 98. West Indies openers began on a brisk note but Indian bowlers picked up wickets at regular intervals to help India defend the total. Mohammed Shami, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja and Pawan Negi picked up two wickets each while Jasprit Bumrah and Harbhajan Singh had a wicket each (REPORT: India win)

Build Up to World T20

Indian cricket team likely to be pitch perfect on spin-friendly home tracks

In an open World T20, with match winners strewn around like flowers on a tree in bloom, there is one factor that could well cast its influence over the entire tournament. In shorter games, the pitch tends to play a relatively smaller role but I believe the propensity of the tracks to spin, or otherwise, will be the single biggest factor at the World T20. If pitches are dry, if the ball grips and turns, and 140-150 become very good scores, it will be interesting to see how teams stack up

Important to maintain consistency to win, says Shastri

India are in the middle of a phenomenal run in the shortest format of the game, and Team Director Ravi Shastri on Wednesday said that he expects his side to maintain consistency and make winning a habit to clinch a big tournaments like the World T20.

World T20 win will mean a lot to us and people at home, says Sammy
