Rohit Sharma breaks India T20I record with century against Windies

India vs West Indies Venue Hosting 2nd T20I Renamed After Atal Bihari Vajpayee

India vs West Indies Venue Hosting 2nd T20I Renamed After Atal Bihari Vajpayee

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

After convincing wins in the Test and ODI series, India have wrapped up the T20I series as well with a power-packed performance in the second game in Lucknow.

The 27-year-old Krunal has scored 21 runs from the two T20I matches. The India captain and his opening partner Shikhar Dhawan consumed a few overs in assessing the pitch before loosening their arms.

Rohit, who made batting handsome with his immaculate timing and placement, picked the ball early and swung his bat to beat the big boundaries for some crisp fours and incredible sixes.

Sharma struck 111 not out off 61 deliveries as India amassed 192-2 after being put in to bat in only the second match at Lucknow's newly-built stadium. The duo ran ones and twos on a huge ground to put pressure on the West Indies, whose bowlers became wayward after showing discipline initially.

Having survived a drop on 28, Dhawan was eventually dismissed by spinner Fabien Allen in the 14th over, with Nicholas Pooran taking a diving catch at long leg.

"They batted well but even at the halfway stage with them not losing a wicket, we still felt we were one or two wickets away from restricting them to a total close to 170, 180 - we would have been happy with that", he explained. He punched in the air to let go his emotions.

The captain of defending champions West Indies, along with the skippers of India, South Africa and Ireland, spoke on Wednesday (7th November) ahead of the 2018 ICC Women's World Twenty20 in the West Indies. Khaleel is a different bowler with the new ball. Bhuvneshwar Kumar (2/12), Jasprit Bumrah (2/20), Khaleel Ahmed (2/30) and Kuldeep Yadav (2/32) equally shared the spoils. It reflected the frustration in the West Indies camp originating from another dismal showing.
