India posted a gargantuan score of 240 runs after West Indies skipper Kieron Pollard decided to put the hosts into bat in the decider. The hosts got off to a flying start as openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul were able to hit the ground running. Both the flamboyant batsman timed the ball to perfection to get their runs.

Rohit was the more aggressive partner and looked in fine touch to get a big score under his belt. The vice-captain completed his 400 International sixes and also scored his 350th six when he smashed Sheldon Cottrell to mid-wicket on the first ball of the third over.

India was at his best.

It was the start of assault and both the openers didn’t look back. On the other hand, KL Rahul also timed his shots and played some fine uppercuts to get himself going. Rohit was relentless against anything that was short and full in length and showed no mercy to the West Indies bowlers.

The local batsman completed his fifty off just 23 balls which is his second fastest fifty in the T20I format. On the other side, KL Rahul continued his good form going as he completed his half-century off just 29 balls.

However, Rohit Sharma’s knock was put paid by Kesrick Williams when the right-hander got a top edge and Hayden Walsh took a good high catch. Subsequently, underfire Rishabh Pant was promoted up the order to number three but the southpaw could not grab his opportunity as he found Jason Holder at long-off when Pollard bowled a wide ball.

Meanwhile, KL Rahul continued his assault on the Windies bowlers. Rahul scored a fine knock of 91 runs off just 55 balls with the help of nine fours and four sixes. Furthermore, Virat Kohli was also able to get off the blocks in a jiffy as he got almost everything in the middle of the bat. Kohli completed his fifty off just 21 balls as he continued his sublime form going. The Indian captain scored 29-ball 70 to add the finishing touches.
