    A whitewash by India. But they almost made a mess of it. Pant and Dhawan kept the home side comfortably ahead in the chase but almost let it slip. New match, same old problems for India. One of their top 3 needs to fire. It was Rohit the other night, it was Dhawan tonight. The southpaw made sure that the Windies never went into ascendancy mode, after picking up 2 wickets in the Powerplay and found an able partner in Rishabh Pant. The two left-handers started slowly, but then began getting on with it. Runs started to come in large numbers in an over, as high as 18, 16, that too, consistently. Dhawan went on to get his highest T20I score while Pant managed his first T20I half century and the 130-run stand sealed the deal for India. Nearly.

India vs West Indies 3rd T20I, Highlights: A whitewash by India. But they almost made a mess of it. Pant and Dhawan kept the home side comfortably ahead in the chase but almost let it slip. New match, same old problems for India. One of their top 3 needs to fire. It was Rohit the other night, it was Dhawan tonight. The southpaw made sure that the Windies never went into ascendancy mode, after picking up 2 wickets in the Powerplay and found an able partner in Rishabh Pant. The two left-handers started slowly, but then began getting on with it. Runs started to come in large numbers in an over, as high as 18, 16, that too, consistently. Dhawan went on to get his highest T20I score while Pant managed his first T20I half century and the 130-run stand sealed the deal for India. Nearly.In absence of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma once again passed the captaincy test with flying colours as Team India has taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match T20I series against West Indies. In the third and final T20I, the hots will aim for a whitewash when the two teams take to the field in the final match at the M.A. Chidambaram stadium in Chennai on Sunday.

However, Chennai fans will miss their favourite “Thala” in former India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who has been dropped from the ongoing T20I series and also the forthcoming T20I rubber in Australia later this month.

With the series already in India’s kitty, after convincing wins in Kolkata and Lucknow, the team management had decided to rest some of the key bowlers in pacers Umesh Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah, and chinaman Kuldeep Yadav for the final match.

In such a scenario, the home side would look to test their reserve players like Shreyas Iyer, Washington Sundar and the uncapped Shahbaz Nadeem ahead of the challenging tour Down Under, later this month.

India’s batting department will be spearheaded by skipper Rohit Sharma, who struck a blistering century to hand the hosts a comfortable 2-0 lead in the second game.

Besides Sharma, his opening partner Shikhar Dhawan has also been amongst the runs, while the middle order responsibilities will be shouldered by the likes of Lokesh Rahul, Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant. (Read Full Preview of 2nd T20I here)
