Hello and welcome to live coverage of 1st T20I between India and West Indies at Hyderabad.

India have won the toss and have opted to field

Virat Kohli: We're going to bowl first. There will be dew in 45 mins to one hour. It's a good wicket to bat on, and it's going to get better to bat with the ball coming on nicely. Chasing has been better for us to be honest. The data has to be taken into account, particularly when you win the toss, which is uncontrollable. Shami and Bhuvi come back into the squad. Bhuvi has done well in this ground to be honest. At the international level, we tend to over-complicate, and it's important to maintain the IPL mindset (on Pant). Samson, Pandey, Yadav miss out.

Keiron Pollard: The toss is 50-50, so we can't really control it. We just need to bat really well. It's important to ignore the outside noise, try to do the right things on the field and come out on top. We have a few young guys who have done well in the CPL. You don't want to put extra pressure on them, just do really well and express themselves in terms of their skills and fielding. Rutherford, Keemo Paul, Fabian Allen, Pooran, missing out today.
