After losing the toss, Dhoni said even he wanted to bowl first, but may be batting first is a blessing in disguise and his batsmen did an excellent job to put up a challenging total for the Windies.
Now all eyes will be on Chris Gayle as he is one person standing like a wall. If he gets going today, it will be difficult for the Indian bowlers to contain him as he knows the India pitches well.
