"If I feel pressure now I can't perform to my potential", Khaleel said at the post-match press conference after India's 71-run win. He has also scalped one wicket.

India then restricted the tourists to 124-9 and take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

But the day belonged to Sharma.

The evening had begun sedately for Sharma and his partner Shikhar Dhawan, as Windies newcomer Oshane Thomas, along with Keemo Paul, kept India down to 11/0 in the first 3 overs. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan gave India a sluggish start but there seemed to be no respite for the Windies bowlers once the two openers started firing on all cylinders. He has 2203 runs in 86 matches and is second in the world, just after Martin Guptill of New Zealand. Everyone who came out to watch the game will go home with a smile.

"I was reading the pitch when we were batting", he said.

After the fall of Dhawan, who was caught brilliantly in the deep by Nicholas Pooran off Allen, and Rishabh Pant in quick succession to pull shots, Rohit forged an unbroken 62-run stand with K.L. Rahul (26) as the host collected 66 runs in the last five overs, including 20-plus runs in two.

Rohit hit seven sixes and eight fours to post his fourth T20 century, the most by any batsman in the format at worldwide level.

Ahmed bowled Hope in his very first over and then got the unsafe Hetmyer caught at long on, three overs later, with his left-arm pace.

Darren Bravo hit 23 off 18 balls but Windies were unable to get any significant partnerships going, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar (2-12) and Jasprit Bumrah (2-20) the most economical of the Indian bowlers.

"They batted well but even at the halfway stage with them not losing a wicket, we still felt we were one or two wickets away from restricting them to a total close to 170, 180 - we would have been happy with that", he explained. "Hopefully, in the third game we'll put up a better performance and come up with a win".
