Khaleel put back the West Indies with two early wickets and according to India's captain Rohit Sharma, the 20-year-old insisted on bowling with the new ball along with experienced Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
The ball from Tonk, Rajasthan dismissed both the openers – Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer – to disturb the Western hunt.
"I had more responsibility today when I bowled with the new ball. I enjoy a lot of responsibility. When I was young, I always dreamed of playing for India and now I have achieved it." If I feel pressure now, I can not do to my potential, "Khaleel said at the press conference after the match after India's 71-victory victory.
"My only goal is to do well for India and because I need to enjoy my game. I'm convinced of my abilities." If you like your game, the hunger will do well to increase. "
Khaleel had taken the headlines during the Asia Cup, but his time for reckoning came in the ODI series against the Caribbean where he ended up as the third highest wicket winner with seven wickets in four games.
The 20-year-olds, who played for Sunriser Hyderabad in the latest edition of the Indian Premier League, were behind the spiders Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav in the list.
Khaleel credits his immediate success to the experience he gathered while sharing the dressing room with major international stars under IPL.
"Playing in IPL gives a great experience when you enter the Indian team. You do not have to make too many changes to your game because you have already shared the changing room with international players," he said.
"When you get into the Indian team, you'd already learned professionalism and know how to fix your mistakes. IPL is a great help."
