New Delhi: India were extremely unfortunate to be on the losing end in the first T20 International against West Indies.
Chasing a gigantic total of 245 runs, India needed two runs off the final ball of the day but skipper MS Dhoni instead lost his wicket.
Centurion KL Rahul was Dhoni's compatriot on field at that time and he revealed what was Captian Cool's strategy before the final over.
"He said that even if we get 11-12 runs till the sixteenth over, it was ok and we could go big in the last couple of overs. We were favouring one end and hit sixes on that side and we knew that they did not have overs left from their main bowlers in the death.
"That was the plan and we just kept hitting well, kept connecting. We got 11-12 runs easily in an over. Just unfortunate it was one of those days when the game could've gone anywhere,"
