Rohit hits record ton as India beat West Indies again

Rohit hits record ton as India beat West Indies again

India got off to an ideal start after the Windies skipper Carlos Brathwaite won the toss and made a decision to put India into bat. "Hopefully, in the third game we'll put up a better performance and come up with a win".

In the match, Rohit Sharma's record-breaking fourth T20 global century powered India to a comprehensive 71-run win against the Windies.

Sharma, who now has 2,203 runs in 86 matches, became India's highest run-scorer in T20s after surpassing regular captain Virat Kohli (2,102 runs) during his red-hot knock.

The Indian captain was just getting started; after sussing the conditions he walked all over the Windies attack as he belted his fourth T20I century and became the only person in the world to boast of 4 centuries in this format. Rohit features twice on the list, along with full-time skipper Virat Kohli, once again with three such stands. You don't have to make too many changes to your game because you already have shared the dressing room with global players, he said."When you come into the Indian team, by then you had already learned professionalism and know how to correct your mistakes".

Khaleel also revealed that he is working on his bowling with bowling coach Bharat Arun at the nets to get better with each passing day. Everyone who came to watch the game will go home with a smile. We wanted to get used to the pitch, hence we took our time. Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma posted a fine partnership of 123 runs to set up the foundation of a big score. It was may for the first time that a spinner bowled a bouncer and it went for four byes. The partnership at the top was very important.

After the dominant batting display, the bowlers put in an efficient display and never allowed the visitors to get going and this drew praise from the skipper.

"They batted well but even at the halfway stage with them not losing a wicket, we still felt we were one or two wickets away from restricting them to a total close to 170, 180 - we would have been happy with that", he explained. We use him different in T20Is then in ODIs. "It's only helping the team when someone like Khaleel bowls in such a manner and takes wickets up front", he said.
