India Vs West Indies: Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma achieve personal milestones; list of records created at Wankhede

India Vs West Indies: Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma achieve personal milestones; list of records created at Wankhede

Mumbai, Dec 11: KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli were at their brutal best with the bat as clinical India hammered West Indies by 67-runs in the third and deciding Twenty20 International here on Wednesday (December 11). With this emphatic win, the Men In Blue registered their third successive T20I series victory over Men In Maroon.

The 'Maximum City' witnessed the maximum entertainment as the trinity of Rahul (91 off 56 balls), Rohit (71 off 34 balls) and captain Kohli (70 not out off 29 balls) contributed in a total of 240 for 3 which completely took factors like, dew, flat-track out of the equation.

An asking rate of 12 from the start would be Herculean for any team and West Indies could only muster 173 for 8 with Mohammed Shami (2/25 in 4 overs) enjoying a good outing in his first game of the series.
