India took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three match T20I series by beating the WINDIES by 71 in the 2nd T20I. Batting first, India scored 195-2 in their 20 overs with Rohit Sharma 111*,the standout batsman.
In reply, the WINDIES were always behind the run rate and were never really in the run chase due to some great bowling from the India bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Khaleel Ahmed, who all took 2 wickets apiece.
There is one T20I match left in the series – can the WINDIES leave this tour of India on a high and win the last game, on November 11th ,in Chennai?
