It all started for 26-year old Saini, blessed with raw pace, when he found Pooran's top edge with a short of length delivery, which flew to wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant.In the very next ball of the fifth over, Saini was on a hat-trick on debut after castling Shimron Hetmyer.
Returning in the final over, Saini trapped the big-hitting Pollard in front, with reviews confirming the dismissal.The Windies' batters were all over the place as apart from Pollard and Pooran, none scored in double digits.
