'We wanted to be ruthless' - Rohit Sharma after 3-0 sweep

'We wanted to be ruthless' - Rohit Sharma after 3-0 sweep

It was Darren Bravo and Nicholas Pooran who took the score of Windies past 180-mark with sensational innings.

While Pant was dismissed for 58 by Keemo Paul in the 19 over, tension surrounded the Chepauk stadium with Dhawan being seen off for 92 in the final over, with just one more run to get from the last ball.

India's seven-wicket win over the West Indies on Sunday in Chennai was stand-in-skipper Rohit Sharma's 11th win in 12 Twenty20 global (T20I) games and that is a world record for the Mumbai cricketer.

But Allen, one of Windies' best fielders, was unable to gather the return with Pandey well short of his ground.

Praising the bowling efforts by team India, Rohit added, "We didn't want to be complacent and wanted to come out and win".

Red Dead Online Release Date Coming "End of November"
The online mode, Red Dead Online , is still set to release and Take-Two Interactive has announced the beta will start this month. And all of the above without a PC release too - as these figures encompass the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game.


In fact, India as a team have three such series wins.

"Games like these happen a lot". That is the thought behind the partnership between Rishabh Pant and me. Especially in the IPL, these have happened a lot.

But Sharma said an away series against old rivals Australia, even without their batsmen Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft, who are banned for ball-tampering, would be a much sterner test. The best part about the series was that there was someone in each game to put his hand up and deliver.

"As a team, there is always scope for improvement". Chahal returned 2/28, while Sundar had 1/33.

The hosts have meanwhile got Yuzvendra Chahal and Washington Sundar in place of Kuldeep Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah.

But if last week proved anything, it's that the gap between Alabama and the rest of college football looks wider than ever. Saturday will present a dramatic difference in quarterback play from what Alabama saw a week ago against LSU.


"It is important to stick to your strengths, and a lot of these guys have not played much for India so a home series like this was the flawless opportunity to show their talent", Sharma said.

"I was also very impressed with the fielding efforts in this tournament by the team". "We lost two early wickets, and I knew I had to stay at the crease", Dhawan, who was the man of the match, said at the post-match presentation.

"It was a good match". DK batted well in the first game as the target was tricky and we had lost a couple of wickets. Rishabh played well, a tremendous partnership between us. "Rohit and Shikhar batted well in the second game and KL did a fabulous job coming in later", he said.

He wasn't afraid to go for his shots and also employed the switch-hit on a few occasions, including hammering a six off Chahal.
