India sealed the T20 series against WI’safter winning the fourth by 59 runs on Saturday. Though the game got delayed by 45 minutes, India managed to post 191-5 and bowled out West Indies for 132 in the last over to the delight of the pro-India crowd.
Suryakumar Yadav took 25 runs from the third over bowled by medium-pacer Obed McCoy.
By the time both openers were dismissed, India had blasted 61 runs in the powerplay.
“Conditions were not easy, we batted well. Lots of thought with that,” Sharma said. “How we bowled was good to see as well. Pitch was so slow, and you can use that to your advantage.”
In the middle overs, West Indies slowed India down a bit, but the visitors ended up with a good score, even if it wasn't the 200 they seemed likely to get. This was thanks to Rishabh Pant's 31-ball 44, Axar Patel's 8-ball 20 not out, and Sanju Samson's 23-ball 30 not out.
In the second game on Monday, McCoy had the best T20 bowling figures for the West Indies, with 6-17. Five days later, he had the worst bowling figures for the team, with 2-66.
The West Indies batters got off to good starts, but they were often out trying for one more big hit, which slowed down the chase. Captain Nicholas Pooran and Rovman Powell each had 24 points, which was the most.
On the other hand, Rohit beat David Warner's world record for T20Is. He has scored 655 runs against the West Indies in T20Is, which is the most by an opener against a rival in the shortest version of the game.
