MS Dhoni, the India captain, has called for improvement while bowling in the first six overs and has asked his bowlers to assess conditions quickly, to determine what a competitive spell is ahead of the second T20 international against West Indies in Florida on Sunday.India had conceded the third highest T20I total - 245 - in the first game on Saturday morning but then chased superbly, only to fall short by one run. West Indies had built their score on a rollicking opening stand between Johnson Charles and Evin Lewis - 126 in 9.3 overs.I felt the way the boys performed overall was very gd, Dhoni said after the game. If we can improve how we bowl in the first six overs - in fact it was the first 12 overs where we gave away t many runs.Dhoni said there needed to be quicker recognition from the bowlers to adjust their game plans when it became clear that the pristine batting pitch was suiting the West Indies hyper-aggressive approach spearheaded by Charles, who struck 79 off 33 balls.Immediately, as a bowler, what you have to do is you have to assess the conditions and change your game plan to some extent, Dhoni said. Normally you think on a gd wicket if Im bowling four overs, if I even get hit for 40 runs and get one or two wickets, its gd enough. So you have to quickly assess what is a gd bowling analysis on this wicket. Maybe the way everybody got hit, it seemed like a four-over 50 [runs], and if you get a couple of wickets or more you are in the plus.The bulk of Indias chasing was done by KL Rahul, who scored 110 off 51 balls, his maiden T20I hundred in only his fourth game. He said he hoped to go from strength to strength.It is very disappointing to be on the losing side but whats gd to see is that we did not give up half way through, Rahul told the BCCI website. The West Indies had put up a big total for us to chase and what we spoke in the dressing rm was to try to take the game as long as we could and the way everyone came and approached this innings was very gd to see … Happy with the approach, but disappointed with the result.Rahul and Dhoni put on 107 in 8.1 overs for the fourth wicket, the partnership ending off the final ball of the game, which Dhoni edged to short third man when India needed two to win. Rahul said the game could have gone anywhere.As sn as he [Dhoni] came in, I knew that he would make me run a lot, Rahul said. I was already tired by the time he came, but he kept on pushing me and like I said we just kept things simple out there in the middle. We required 13 runs an 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 couldve gone anywhere.India are currently second on the ICCs T20I rankings, with West Indies third. They will swap positions if West Indies win on Sunday and take the series 2-0. Their new T20 captain Carlos Brathwaite said Saturdays win and the manner in which it was achieved reaffirmed that the reigning World T20 champions were the top T20 side in world cricket.We became world champions and now were here to defend that and show that we are number one in the world and show why we are, Brathwaite said. The rankings say that were number three and the plan is for us to go out tomorrow, give another big effort for the last, go 2-0 up, win the series and move to number two in the rankings.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Jameis Winston kept retreating toward his own goal line, seemingly in disregard for the best interests of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.The second-year quarterback often is at his best when hes improvising, though, and the first overall pick from the 2015 draft kept scrambling into the end zone and back out before heaving a 38-yard completion to Mike Evans.The play started at his own 23 and ended at the Chicago 38, where Evans made a leaping catch. On the next play, Winston threw his second TD pass in a 36-10 rout of the Bears on Sunday.Thats Jameis making plays, Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said, though that hardly crossed the coachs mind while Winston was heading the wrong way with the Bucs clinging to a seven-point lead early in the third quarter.Throw it away. Throw it away. Do anything. Dont take a safety, Koetter recalled himself thinking.But, the thing about Jameis, Jameis is going to do some things that we dont plan for and hes going to do some things that sometimes I dont like, the coach added. But Jameis is going to make some plays. Thats who he is. ... You cant coach that out of him. Hes a special player in that respect.Winston finished 23 of 33 for 312 yards with one interception, helping the Bucs (4-5) win at home for the first time this season. The Bears (2-7) are winless in five road games.That was a great play by him. ... He retreated. I tried to get him again and he stepped up in the pocket and let it rip, Bears linebacker Leonard Floyd said. Great play by him.Winston threw for TDs of 10 yards to Cameron Brate and 43 yards to Freddie Martino, a former practice squad player with two career receptions.Two weeks after returning from injury and helping the Bears (2-7) beat NFC North leader Minnesota, Jay Cutler threw two interceptions and fumbled twice, one resulting in a third-quarter safety that put the Bucs up 29-10.The Bucs forced four turnovers overall and sacked Cutler four times. Even though the Bears are last in the league in scoring, it was a confidence-building performance for a defense that yielded 73 points and 1,087 yards -- including 857 passing -- in home losses to Oakland and Atlanta the previous two weeks.Cutler missed five games with a sprained right thumb before playing well and not turning the ball over against the Vikings. The Bears had a bye last week, but the momentum they built against Minnesota didnt carry over to the trip to Tampa.ddddddddddddThe Bears scored on Cameron Merediths 50-yard TD reception on the final play of the first half. Cutler finished 16 of 30 for 182 yards, and Tampa Bays Chris Conte returned a first-quarter interception 20 yards to give the Bucs a 7-0 lead.Any given week, you can win, you can lose. It depends on how you execute, Cutler said. Obviously, we didnt get the job done today.MARTINS RETURNBucs running back Doug Martin returned from a hamstring injury that had sidelined him since Week 2. He rushed for 33 yards on 16 carries and scored on a 1-yard run that made it 36-10 late in the fourth quarter.HAIL MARYDeep in their own territory and down two touchdowns after turning the ball over four times, the Bears werent content with merely running out the final 31 seconds of the opening half. They used timeouts after Jeremy Langfords 13-yard run and Cutlers 4-yard completion to the reserve running back, then set themselves up for a final play when KaDeem Carey scampered 16 yards to midfield on a reception before getting out of bounds. Cutler heaved his 50-yard TD pass to Meredith in the back of the end zone to finish a four-play, 83-yard drive.YOUNG PASSERWinstons second-quarter TD pass to Brate was the 40th of the second-year pros career. At 22 years, 312 days old, hes the youngest quarterback in NFL history to reach that plateau, doing it in 25 games. Hes on pace to top 4,000 yards passing for the second straight year, and has thrown for 19 TDs vs. 10 interceptions this season.INJURIESBears: Lost the right side of their offensive line in the first half, with guard Kyle Long leaving with an ankle injury and tackle Bobby Massie suffering a concussion.
