India vs West Indies: Khaleel Ahmed ‘extremely excited’ to represent the country

India vs Windies 2018

Needing a win to stay alive in the three-match series after the five-wicket loss at Kolkata, West Indies got off to the worst possible start, losing two wickets - Shai Hope and Shimron Hetmyer early on with young left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed accounting for both the batsmen.

The charge was led by captain Rohit Sharma, who after playing out the first over as a maiden, opened his shoulders and sent the Windies bowlers and fielders on an almighty leather hunt, which ceased only when the final delivery was bowled.

India piled up a challenging 195 for two off their 20 overs behind captain Rohit Sharma's superb unbeaten 111 and West Indies bungled their run chase to end on 124 for nine at the Atal Bihari Vajpayee International Cricket Stadium. But the Indian openers finally broke the shackles in the fifth over when Rohit and Dhawan took Thomas to the cleaners hitting a six and two boundaries, picking up 17 runs. He scored a historic fourth hundred, also creating many other records in the process. Rohit features twice on the list, along with full-time skipper Virat Kohli, once again with three such stands.

"I was reading the pitch when we were batting", he said. We took the time initially and when he gets going it's not easy. Whenever you get an opportunity you do your best. Everyone who came to watch the game will go home with a smile.

It was not a very fluent innings by Shikhar Dhawan, but Rohit said that it was important for the duo to stick around and form a partnership. It was may for the first time that a spinner bowled a bouncer and it went for four byes. "I think 120-plus partnership between us was very crucial".

Kieron Pollard almost collided with Jasprit Bumrah while the latter was completing a caught and bowled chance. We use him different in T20Is then in ODIs. In reply, the West Indian top order again disappointed as left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed started the rout by sending back the openers - Shai Hope and the unsafe Shimron Hetmyer and then chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav nailed things by removing Darren Bravo and Nicholas Pooran in his first over. "And when he bowls that kind of a spell upfront that helps us", Rohit added.
