Sharma struck 111 not out off 61 deliveries as India amassed 192-2 after being put in to bat in only the second match at Lucknow's newly-built stadium.

Rohit hit seven sixes and eight fours to post his fourth T20 century, the most by any batsman in the format at worldwide level. The men in blue thus clinched their 7th straight win in a T20I series.

Kohli, who went past Sachin Tendulkar's record to become the fastest to reach 10,000 runs in the ODI series, was taken by surprise after a user said that he is an overrated batsman and that he prefers to watch England and Australia batsmen.

None of the batsmen or all-rounders got to grips with the Indian bowlers and they will be desperate to perform with numerous big T20 domestic tournaments on the horizon and they will be keen to impress any watching teams to earn sizeable contracts especially for the IPL. We wanted to get used to the pitch, hence we took our time. "I think 120-plus partnership between us was very crucial".

Having survived a drop on 28, Dhawan was eventually dismissed by spinner Fabien Allen in the 14th over, with Nicholas Pooran taking a diving catch at long leg.

The Caribbean batting faltered in their chase after losing their openers in Shai Hope, for six, and Shimron Hetmyer, for 15, early.

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.

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.

"Our batting continues to let us down.We are still trying to find our best opening combination", said Brathwaite.
