Eoin Morgan won the toss and India started strongly with Rohit Sharma hitting a six off the first ball of the innings. However, the host team lost openers K.L.

Suryakumar Yadav, who got off the mark in international cricket with a six over fine leg, hit three sixes and smashed six fours. He followed his Mumbai Indians teammate Ishan Kishan to score a half-century on debut. Kishan achieved the feat in the second T20 International on March 14.
