LUCKNOW, India: Skipper Rohit Sharma smashed his fourth Twenty20 worldwide century - the most by any batsman in the format - to propel India to 192 for two against West Indies on Tuesday. He has 2203 runs in 86 matches and is second in the world, just after Martin Guptill of New Zealand.

Khaleel also revealed that he is working on his bowling with bowling coach Bharat Arun at the nets to get better with each passing day. "Glad that we won this game and this series as well", said Sharma, who is leading the side in place of the resting Kohli. The duo ran ones and twos on a huge ground to put pressure on the West Indies, whose bowlers became wayward after showing discipline initially.

The right-hander shared in a 123-run stand with fellow opener Shikhar Dhawan, who made 43 before he was well held in the deep by Nicholas Pooran off the bowling of spinner Fabian Allen. Obviously last game we bowled and fielded very, very well.

Sharma then launched an attack as he hit eight fours and seven sixes during his entertaining blitz in front of a raucous home crowd.

The Caribbeans kept losing wickets at regular intervals with Darren Bravo top-scoring with 23.

"That being said, we didn't bat as well as wanted to, the batting continues to let us down but again, small positives - Kuldeep went for a bit ... so within a dismal performance there was one or two positives".

"They batted well but even at the halfway stage with them not losing a wicket, we still felt we were one or two wickets away from restricting them to a total close to 170, 180 - we would have been happy with that", he explained.

Rohit's spell-binding fireworks, an unbeaten 61-ball-111, containing eight fours and seven sixes, enabled him to get his fourth T20 global hundred, the most by any batsman, and guide India to a crushing 71-run victory over West Indies.
