India vs West Indies - Highlights & Stats

Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan gave India a sluggish start but there seemed to be no respite for the Windies bowlers once the two openers started firing on all cylinders.

"Khaleel wanted the new ball and he initially looks to swing it and he has taken up the challenge well".

"Bumrah has been one of the premier bowlers for us".

LUCKNOW, India: Skipper Rohit Sharma smashed his fourth Twenty20 worldwide century - the most by any batsman in the format - to propel India to 192 for two against West Indies on Tuesday. "I had read the pitch well when we were batting", said Khaleel, who is still fine-tuning certain areas in his bowling.

Skipper Rohit Sharma smashed his fourth T20 worldwide century - the most by any batsman in the format - to set up India's convincing 71-run series-clinching win over West Indies on Tuesday.

Law, who will part ways with the West Indies team after the subsequent tour of Bangladesh, said the Caribbeans are presently on a transition phase and with time they will only get better.

Pedro found compatriot Alvaro Morata who took the touch before smashing a powerful effort past Wayne Hennessey. The home side sealed the victory with 20 minutes left on the clock.

Khaleel had even convinced skipper Rohit Sharma to hand him the new ball at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee International Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. "And when Khaleel bowls that kind of a spell upfront that helps us", Rohit said at the post-match presentation. One of the best stadiums we've played at, the way the crowd supported, hope to get the same support in future.

"My only aim is to do well for India and for that I need to enjoy my game".

Rohit dwarfed Dhawan, who banked on his "life" on the boundary line on 28 off Carlos Brathwaite to make an impressive in his 41-ball 43 (and achieved the milestone of scoring 1000 runs in T20Is), in a 123-run stand and set India for a big aggregate. It was always going to be an uphill task to chase such a total.

In reply, only Darren Bravo (23) and tail-ender Keemo Paul (20) passed 15 as West Indies' batting collapsed from early and never recovered.

"They have full of potential and now its up to them whether they really want to work hard or not, play really good cricket, listen to the coaching staff and senior players". We are still trying to find our best opening combination. He took the game away from us. "Hopefully in the third game, we'll put up a better performance", said the Windies skipper.
