West Indies defeated India by 4 runs in the first T20I match with a splendid performance by their bowlers. Along with this, West Indies clinched the T20I 1-0 in the 5-match series. In this match, debutant Tilak Varma showcased a good batting performance from the Indian side.
However, the former Indian opener and now a celebrated commentator Aakash Chopra is not too worried about the loss in the first game of the series.
While having a conversation with Jio Cinema, When Aakash was asked about the comeback of team India, the former said,”Don’t take one defeat too seriously because it is a five-match series. It is the nature of T20I cricket that you will win at times and lose on other occasions. It was a very close game. In my opinion, you don’t need to do anything different.”
Aakash Chopra said that the visitors need only some improvements in the batting order.
“You have to just improve on the one-percenters here or there. A little more responsibility in the batting order and that’s about it. So I am not at all troubled that India lost the first match.”
In the first game, team India stopped West Indies at 149/6 in all 20 overs. While chasing this small target, team India could only manage to get 145 runs at the loss of nine wickets.
