Twitter erupts as Virat Kohli, KL Rahul propel India to a record-chase against West Indies

India captain Virat Kohli produced another batting masterclass after KL Rahul’s stroke-filled 62 to his side gun down their highest-ever T20I chase and taking a 1-0 lead in the 3-match series.


Previously India’s chase of 207 vs Sri Lanka in Mohali, 2009, was their highest in the format. In the process, Kohli (94 not out) also became the sole owner of the record of most fifties in T20Is, surpassing Rohit Sharma’s 22 T20I half-centuries.

Earlier, after asked to bat first, the tourists posted a mammoth 207/5 on the board, thanks to the half-century from Shimron Hetmyer, quickfire 37 from skipper Kieron Pollard and a 9-ball 24 from all-rounder Jason Holder.
