He and Shikhar Dhawan posted 123 runs for opening wicket to provide a flawless platform after West Indies started off promisingly with paceman Oshane Thomas bowling a maiden Dhawan got to a somewhat sedate 43 (41b, 4x3) before being caught by Nicholas Pooran off the bowling of Allen at long-leg, but there was no respite for the visitors thereafter as the Indians pressed on the gas pedal to dictate terms.

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.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar (2/12), Jasprit Bumrah (2/20), Khaleel Ahmed (2/30) and Kuldeep Yadav (2/32) equally shared the spoils. Everyone who came to watch the game will go home with a smile.

Rohit has now been involved in hundred-run partnerships on eight occasions, surpassing the record of seven such stands he jointly held with Martin Guptill of New Zealand and Alex Hales of England.

The third and final match in the series takes place in Chennai on Sunday. "I hope we get many more games here and we continue to entertain them", Rohit concluded.

Colorado man pleads guilty to wife and daughter's murders
Watts initially told police he strangled his wife in a rage because, after the couple had argued, she killed their two girls. Watts is represented by the Office of the Colorado State Public Defender, which does not comment on pending cases.

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. We wanted to get used to the pitch, hence we took our time. "I think 120-plus partnership between us was very crucial", the captain said.

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. It was may for the first time that a spinner bowled a bouncer and it went for four byes.

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

India do still have four T20Is left to play in the calendar year: a now dead-rubber against the Windies, followed by three matches in Australia in December - wonder what that record could burgeon into! "Hopefully we can put them together in the final game and come out with a win".
