Chahal brings breakthrough as he ousts Evin Lewis. Windies are 115/1.
50 for Gayle, 100 for Windies in the 10th over. All with a 6 off Khaleel Ahmed. He celebrated it with a 6 and four in a row. Savage!

Khaleel Ahmed comes into attack and was welcomed by a 6 by Lewis.
50 up for Windies in 6.1 overs. And Gayle celebrates it with a four off Bhuvi
4, 4, 2, 4 by Gayle off Shami. It was a big over. 20 runs

Windies win toss and they are batting first.
