Rohit Sharma overtakes Virat Kohli; becomes India`s leading run scorer in T20Is

Two players, one being the premier batsman and the second a premier bowler of India, are on the brink of achieving a few milestones in the next game. "Everyone who came out to watch the game will go home with a smile", Rohit said in the post-match presentation.

Not only this, the 31-year-old also set a captaincy record after leading India to nine wins in his first ten T20Is as captain, following the five-wicket win against West Indies in the first T20 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. We wanted to get used to the pitch, hence we took our time.

"Shikhar's natural instinct is to put pressure on bowlers. I think 120-plus partnership between us was very crucial".

The 20-year, who played for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the last edition of the Indian Premier League, was behind spinners Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav in the list.Khaleel credits his instant success to the experience he had gathered while sharing the dressing room with big worldwide stars during the IPL.

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.

Lokesh Rahul, unbeaten on 26, had the best view when Sharma reached his century in the last over of the innings with a boundary off his opposite number in Carlos Brathwaite.

Ahmed bowled Hope in his very first over and then got the unsafe Hetmyer caught at long on, three overs later, with his left-arm pace. We took the time initially and when he gets going it's not easy.

The Caribbeans kept losing wickets at regular intervals with Darren Bravo top-scoring with 23.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar missed the first T20 with a stomach bug so he should be fit again to return although any changes to the bowling unit will purely be to rotate as that was their main strength on Sunday with Kuldeep Yadav causing the West Indies' batsmen plenty of issues taking 3 for 13 from 4 overs.
