West Indies pacer Kemar Roach rued his team's failure to set a challenging target for India which could have allowed the visiting bowlers to put pressure on the hosts who managed to sneak away with a one-wicket win in the first ODI here.
After being restricted to 212, the Windies were off to a great start thanks to Roach's quick three-wicket burst, only to lose it by one wicket in the end last night.
"It was a big game. Playing in India is really tough. But we also fought very hard. It's just that last hurdle we could not cross. To give them a good fight on their home ground is a good effort for us. We are a young side and are gelling well," Roach said.
