In T20s, India need players who can bat around Viratt Kohli and Rohit Sharma and play with more freedom. India won the first T20I despite hitting fewer boundaries than the West Indies, but just like Kohli’s special knock, that was an exception, not the rule. Which is why the West Indies might go into the decider in Mumbai as the slight favourites.
