India vs West Indies - Highlights & Stats

India vs West Indies - Highlights & Stats”

Rohit's sublime touch made up for India's cautious start after West Indies asked the home team to bat first on a lesser known track.

The number-fest in India's series-winning victory, though, wasn't limited exclusively to the captain.

India then restricted the tourists to 124-9 and take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

But the day belonged to Sharma.

Hitman's knock also saw him overtake Pakistan's Shoaib Malik and New Zealand's Brendon McCullum to grab the second spot on the list of batsmen with the most runs in T20 internationals. But just when Dhawan was looking good for a half century, Nicholas Pooran took a fine catch at the long leg boundary off Fabian Allen to get rid of the southpaw. Everyone who came to watch the game will go home with a smile. Speaking to the media after the match, Ahmed said that he although he was nervous before the game, everything fell into place eventually.

Rohit Sharma along with his opening mate Shikhar Dhawan equaled the world record for most partnerships in excess of 100 runs in T20I cricket.

"You know Dhawan's natural instinct is to put pressure on the bowlers, but we made a decision to take our time. I think 120-plus partnership between us was very crucial", the captain said.

Lokesh Rahul finished unbeaten on 26, watching from the non-striker's end as Sharma clattered a boundary off opposite number Carlos Brathwaite to reach his ton in the last over of the innings. Left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed struck in his first and third overs to remove two unsafe batsmen, Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer, cheaply and retard the run rate.

Ahmed bowled Hope in his very first over and then got the unsafe Hetmyer caught at long on, three overs later, with his left-arm pace.

It became bad to worse for the visitors when Kieran Pollard was caught off his own bowling by Jasprit Bumrah.

West Indies' misery in the two-month long tour was compounded as they suffered yet another series defeated after losing the Test series 0-2 and subsequently the one dayers by 1-3 margin.

"Our batting continues to let us down.We are still trying to find our best opening combination", said Brathwaite. "Hopefully, in the third game we'll put up a better performance and come up with a win".

West Indies play the final T20 global of the series on Sunday in Chennai.
