Rohit now is the leading run-scorer for India in T20Is as he overtook Virat Kohli. One of the finds for India this series has been Khaleel Ahmed who yet again shone with returns of 2/30 in his four overs.

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

Kieron Pollard almost collided with Jasprit Bumrah while the latter was completing a caught and bowled chance.

Skipper Rohit Sharma smashed his fourth T20 global 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. "I think 120-plus partnership between us was very crucial".

Dhawan, who survived a dropped catch on 28, finally fell to spinner Fabien Allen as Nicholas Pooran took a diving catch at long leg.

And lack of scoring is a familiar issue, too — the Jets have 33 points in the past three games, all losses. "It's frustrating. The injury on the middle finger of his right hand, which he dealt with earlier this season, finally forced him from the game.

Lokesh Rahul finished unbeaten on 26, watching from the non-striker's end as Sharma clattered a boundary off opposite number Carlos Brathwaite to reach his ton in the last over of the innings.

Khaleel Ahmed had already dismissed openers Shai Hope (6) and Shimron Hetmyer (15) by that stage, as the tourists struggled with the bat for a second successive outing.

"On a tour like this it's hard to just look at the negatives; sometimes you just need to take the small positives and go away with them".

It has been a complete domination by India after they swept the Test series 2-0 and then won the one-day internationals 3-1. "Hopefully, in the third game we'll put up a better performance and come up with a win".

Rohit's spell-binding fireworks, an unbeaten 61-ball-111, containing eight fours and seven sixes, enabled him to get his fourth T20 worldwide hundred, the most by any batsman, and guide India to a crushing 71-run victory over West Indies.
