India got their preparations for the 2020 ICC World T20 underway on Saturday in halting fashion, taking until the 18th over to chase down an unimpressive 96 total by West Indies — despite losing six wickets along the way, as CricBuzz reported. Only one India batsman, Rohit Sharma, topped 20 runs as the bowlers on both sides dominated the day on a damp, Florida pitch that slowed the scoring considerably.
India's reckless approach at the crease did not help matters, losing three wickets to Navdeep Saini alone. With the three-match series now in the balance, West Indies batsmen will need to do better in the second match, that will live stream from Florida.

It was veteran Kieron Pollard who kept the situation from becoming even more embarrassing for West Indies than it was. Pollard tallied 49 runs off the equal number of balls to account for more than half of his team's total, per CricInfo stats.
But only one other Windies batsman even cracked double digits, Nicholas Poornan, who went for 20 off of 16, as the Windies put on an otherwise dire display, starting with opener John Campbell, who saw just two deliveries from off-spinner Washington Sundar before being bundled off on a Hardik Pandya catch.
