The 31-year-old also became the second leading run scorer in Twenty20 Internationals, his aggregate of 2203 only behind New Zealander Martin Guptill's 2271.

Skipper Carlos Brathwaite on Tuesday tried desperately to search for the positives after West Indies crashed to a 71-run defeat to India in the second Twenty20 worldwide, to record their fourth straight series defeat inside the last 12 months.

Fast bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed and Jasprit Bumrah, along with spinner Kuldeep Yadav, took two wickets each.

Hitman's knock also saw him overtake Pakistan's Shoaib Malik and New Zealand's Brendon McCullum to grab the second spot on the list of batsmen with the most runs in T20 internationals.

"I had more responsibility today as I was bowling with the new ball".

The openers will be keen to get some runs under their belt in this format as Darwan especially has been struggling in T20s of late so there is pressure on the top order to get them off to a better start in this game whether they set a total or chase. "Everyone who came out to watch the game will go home with a smile", Rohit said in the post-match presentation. You know Dhawan's natural instinct is to put pressure on the bowlers, but we made a decision to take our time. "I think 120-plus partnership between us was very crucial".


"You know Dhawan's natural instinct is to put pressure on the bowlers, but we chose to take our time".

The right-left combination of Sharma and Dhawan, who surpassed 1,000 T20 runs during his 41-ball knock, smashed the balls to all parts of the huge ground before the first wicket fell in the 14th over.

Lokesh Rahul finished unbeaten on 26, watching from the non-striker's end as Sharma clattered a boundary off opposite number Carlos Brathwaite to reach his ton in the last over of the innings.

Kieron Pollard almost collided with Jasprit Bumrah while the latter was completing a caught and bowled chance. "Hopefully in the third game, we'll put up a better performance", said the Windies skipper.

Needing a win to stay alive in the three-match series after the five-wicket loss at Kolkata, West Indies got off to the worst possible start, losing two wickets - Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer early on with young left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed accounting for both the batsmen.
