India beats West Windies by six wickets in first T20

Kohli hit six sixes and accelerated just when the team needed to help India chase down a 208-run victory target with eight balls to spare at Hyderabad's Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. KL Rahul, Kohli's collaborator in a century stand, made 62 but the India captain completed a clinical chase, going run-a-ball in his first 20 deliveries before plundering 74 in his next 30.

  • Skipper Rohit Sharma made it a memorable 100th T20 International blending grace with brutality in his 85 off 43 balls as India cantered to a series-levelling eight-wicket victory over Bangladesh in Rajkot on Thursday.

    Within the Congress central leadership, Team Sonia’s entrenched warhorses have shown Team Rahul Gandhi that killer instinct on the electoral battlefield mattered. Despite the campaign over Article 370, BJP and allies dropped seats in both states.

    Some believe Mayank Agarwal could be an option in the December ODI series against West Indies if Rohit Sharma takes a break. Another factor that could go in Agarwal's favour is Shikhar Dhawan's bad patch and the need to have another back-up. Many feel that Agarwal could be seen as a long-term option keeping in mind the 2023 ODI World Cup in India.

    Rohit Sharma, who had scored 176 in his first innings as a Test opener on day one of the match, made 127 off 149 balls on fourth day.

    Earlier in the day, India reached a promising total of 174 helped by half-centuries from Shreyas Iyer and K L Rahul. It was a maiden T20 half-century for Iyer (62 off 33) and the sixth one for Rahul (52 off 35). Iyer's entertaining knock came after he was dropped on 0.

    India, while batting first at least, has approached the T20 game much like the way they approach the 50-over format. Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma are champions of the 50-over contest and have time to up the tempo after settling in. They have done that time and again in the last few years.

    Congress' Anand Sharma said the decision to remove the SPG cover for Sonia Gandhi, Rahul and Priyanka is "shocking and vindictive". "It makes the family vulnerable. Not to forget that two members of the family former prime ministers Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi were assassinated," he said.

    “The investment in DHFL started on March 17, 2017 – two days before Yogi Adityanath was sworn in as the chief minister. Who was the CM then? Akhilesh Yadav should explain what his connection with DHFL is,” state power minister Shrikant Sharma said on Sunday.

    In his first innings as Test opener, Rohit Sharma hits an authoritative century before rain washes out final session.

    If one of Kohli, Sharma or Dhawan gets set, they will either drag the game deep or finish it off. If two of them bat well, India will surely win the game. However, India’s T20 strategy needs to evolve keeping in mind the bigger grounds in Australia where power-hitting will be at a premium at the T20 World Cup next year.

    It is an interesting time for Kohli to miss out. One, it allows him an iota of rest in what is going to be a hectic schedule stretching into autumn of 2020. Two, and more importantly, it will allow him to watch this side from the outside.
