India vs West Indies 2nd T20 2019, key stats

  • India registered their seventh T20I win over the West Indies and their 72nd overall in T20Is, helping themselves take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series after rain intervened with the West Indies behind the DLS par score (121).
  • Captaining India for the 24th time in T20Is, Virat Kohli registered his 14th win.
  • The win was set up by a strong Indian batting performance led by Rohit Sharma, who made his 17th T20I half-century, a 51-ball 67 (6 fours, 3 sixes).
  • Chasing 168 for a series-levelling win, West Indies had Rovman Powell playing an important hand with the bat. He made his second T20I century (a 34-ball 54; 6 fours, 3 sixes) and stitched a 76-run partnership for the third wicket with Nicholas Pooran. But he was dismissed by Krunal Pandya, who went on to bag the man-of-the-match award, just as he was looking to unleash himself with the mounting required run rate.
