Rohit Sharmas record ton helps India clinch T20 series

Windies would be buoyed by Oshane Thomas's lively spell in the opening T20I

The 27-year-old Krunal has scored 21 runs from the two T20I matches.

However, the Carlos Brathwaite-led young West Indian unit managed to pull things back, even leaving India reeling at 45/4 at one stage.

Dhawan made a brisk 43 but found himself playing second fiddle to the rampaging Rohit in their 123-run stand for the opening partnership. He has 2203 runs in 86 matches and is second in the world, just after Martin Guptill of New Zealand.

"Those celebrations come because I am extremely excited as I am representing my country", he said.

"Whenever you get an opportunity, you try and do well".

There were some bumps and maybe even a few tears, but she persisted (and managed to find the fun), serving some on-point vocals as always.


"You know Dhawan's natural instinct is to put pressure on the bowlers, but we made a decision to take our time". Everyone who came out to watch the game will go home with a smile.

"Chasing 195 was always going to be an uphill task but there were a few positives - the way Fabian Allen bowled in the middle with two batsmen in Rohit and Shikhar (Dhawan) going - and the way he kept them under wraps until he finally got Shikhar out".

"I was reading the pitch when we were batting", he said.

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.

Sharma then launched an attack as he hit eight fours and seven sixes during his entertaining blitz in front of a raucous home crowd.

The charge was led mostly by Democratic women whose victories all but ensure a US House that is younger and more diverse. When she won the primary, she denounced President Donald Trump as "a racist, misogynistic, truly empathy-bankrupt man".


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

"Bumrah has been our premier bowler for us and the way we use him in T20s is different to ODIs".

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.

Changes would seem unlikely as they are unlikely to make any rash decisions after one game but the opening batsmen is clearly an issue with Ramdin opening on Sunday and struggling and they have nobody in the squad who has sufficient quality to get them off to a rapid start alongside Hope. "Hopefully in the third game, we'll put up a better performance", said the Windies skipper.

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