Sharma´s record ton powers India to 195-2 in 2nd T20

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

The Uttar Pradesh government renamed the Ekana Stadium

India have stamped their authority in the T20I series as well. But unfortunately, they have looked completely out of sorts. While Rahul warmed the bench throughout the ODI series, he played a good cameo of 26 runs in just 14 balls in the second T20 helping India reach 195 runs.

Rohit now is the leading run-scorer for India in T20Is as he overtook Virat Kohli.

The Caribbean batting faltered in their chase after losing their openers in Shai Hope, for six, and Shimron Hetmyer, for 15, early.

Skipper Rohit Sharma was high in praise of Khaleel Ahmed.

Rohit's century was a record fourth in T20 Internationals and he put on 123 for the first wicket with Dhawan (43) - a partnership which was also a record for India against West Indies. Hence, we took so much time to understand what the pitch is doing.

Today was a ideal platform. Everyone who came out to watch the game will go home with a smile. That's what we play for.

Skipper Rohit Sharma's record-breaking fourth T20 worldwide 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. You know Dhawan's natural instinct is to put pressure on the bowlers, but we made a decision to take our time. He wanted to take his time after getting out cheaply in the last few games.

He could also refuse to sign off on a subpoena of Trump if the president refuses to voluntarily speak to investigators. Attorney General Elliot Richardson and his deputy William Ruckelshaus resigned rather than comply with Nixon's order.

"Sooner than later we will get better results, better equipped players".

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

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.

Rohit, who made batting attractive with his immaculate timing and placement, picked the ball early and swung his bat to beat the big boundaries for some crisp fours and wonderful sixes. "And when Khaleel bowls that kind of a spell upfront that helps us", Rohit said at the post-match presentation.

Wonderful stadium. One of the best stadiums we've played at, the way the crowd supported, hope to get the same support in future.

From there on, it was just a matter of time before India wrapped up the game and they did it in style. Windies captain Carlos Brathwaite won the toss and invited India to bat first. It was always going to be an uphill task to chase such a total. He took the game away from us.

They batted well without losing a wicket in the initial overs.
