Familiarity with conditions at the Eden Gardens was a massive advantage, said chinaman Kuldeep Yadav after bowling India to a five-wicket win over the West Indies in the first T20 International.

Kuldeep was aware that the ball would grip and not turn much as he returned with man-of-the-match figures of 3/13 to restrict West Indies for a small 109/8 en route to an emphatic win on Sunday night.

“It is a massive, massive advantage when you have played a lot of matches at a venue,” Kuldeep said at the post-match news conference.

Bowling in tandem with debutant Krunal Pandya, the 23-year old snared the wickets of Darren Bravo, Rovman Powell and skipper Carlos Brathwaite to reduce Windies to 63/7 inside 15 overs.
