    The Indian bowling was once again spot on. Khaleel Ahmed was the start at the start. He was given the new ball and he impressed one and all. He finished with the two-fer. Everybody except Krunal Pandya had two wickets each to their name. Kumar ended with the best figures as he went for only 12 in his 4. All-in-all it was a clinical performance by the Indians. Stay tuned for the presentation.

    Another thumping performance from India has seen them seal the series with a game to go. To be honest, it was all set up by their skipper, Rohit Sharma who scored a magnificent ton to set a massive target for the Windies. They needed an exceptional start to chase this down but did not get it. Their top order failed to make an impact, their middle order once again did not come to fore. 23 was the highest score of their innings and that itself speaks a lot about how poor they have been with the bat.

India vs West Indies 2nd T20I, Highlights: Skipper Rohit Sharma’s record-breaking fourth T20 International hundred powered India to a comprehensive 71-run win over West Indies in what turned out to be another one-sided series victory for the hosts. India, thus, took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match T20 series. The last T20 will be played in Chennai on November 11. The legend of Rohit in white ball format continued to grow exponentially as his unbeaten 111 off 61 balls helped India score 195 for 2 after being put into bat.

Rohit, who also surpassed regular skipper Virat Kohli to become top run-getter among Indians in the shortest format, was at his brutal best, hitting eight boundaries and seven towering sixes.

In reply, West Indies batting caved in once again as they managed only 124 for 9 at the end of the stipulated overs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar (2/12), Jasprit Bumrah (2/20), Khaleel Ahmed (2/30) and Kuldeep Yadav (2/32) equally shared the spoils.

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 a 1-3 margin.

Earlier, Rohit and Shikhar Dhawan (43 off 41) made up for their rare failure in the first T20 in Kolkata on Sunday, stitching 123 runs off 84 balls for the opening wicket to lay the foundation for the big score.
