A thumping performance from the Windies here. They now have a chance to seal the series in the 2nd T20I. Bangladesh on the other hand, will look to bounce back and level the series in the 2nd T20I on 20th December in Dhaka. That match will start at 1700 local time (11:00AM GMT) on 20th December at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium, Dhaka. Join us for that one till then have a good time.

Windies skipper, Carlos Brathwaite, says it is a very good win but it is just the first game and there are still 2 more games to go. States the batting and bowling clicked today and everything they did today, went their way. Ends by saying they can't rest on their laurels and they have to once again bring their best game in the second T20I.

Man of the Match, Sheldon Cottrell, says the bowlers need to be smart on such wickets and they executed their plans well today. Ends by saying he is a soldier and hence, he celebrates the way he does.

Bangladesh skipper, Shakib Al Hasan, says everything went wrong today. Further adds they did not bat well and did not bowl well also. Mentions they did not perform well as a team and hence, lost the match. Ends by saying nothing worked out today other than the toss and were comprehensively beaten.

Windies have completely dominated the first T20I. Their bowlers set it up for the batsman by restricting Bangladesh to 129. Sheldon Cottrell was the star as he finished with a 4-fer. In reply, Evin Lewis and Shai Hope came out all guns blazing especially Shai Hope. He scored the fastest T20I fifty by a Windies player. His innings completely took the game away from the home side. Windies wrapped up this chase in just 10.5 overs with 8 wickets in hand to take the lead in this 3 match T20I series.
