India trash Windies to seal T20I series
Meanwhile, Team India continued their domination against Windies as they registered yet another thumping win in the second T20I at Lucknow.
This time it was Rohit Sharma who led India’s attack with the bat with a sterling century. The opening batsman produced plenty of fireworks in his knock of 111 runs off just 61 balls hammering seven sixes and nine fours. He also become the first batsman to score 4 T20I hundreds and is now the leading run-scorer for India in T20Is.

Chasing a daunting target of 195 runs, Windies batsmen never arrived to the party and lost wickets at regular intervals. Pace bowler Khaleel Ahmed was terrific with the new ball and later the spinners chipped in with vital contributions.
With this win, Indian team has sealed the three match T20I series 2-0. The hosts have already won the Test series 2-0 and the ODI series 3-1.
