India won the weather-hit second match by 22 runs via Duckworth-Lewis method on Sunday to clinch the T20 series with a game to spare against West Indies. Kohli lauded his players for clinical performance and dropped hints that he may try out players, who did not get chance to play in the first two matches. 'Winning is always going to be a priority. But sealing the series gives the chance to bring few guys in.
Idea is always going to be to win first. But winning the first two games gives the cushion,' Kohli said during the post match presentation ceremony. The teams will now travel to Guyana for the final match, to played at Providence stadium on Tuesday. Shreyas Iyer and leg-break bowler Rahul Chahar stand a good chance to compete in the third Twenty20. It will not be a surprise if Deepak Chahar, cousin of Rahul, too finds a place in the playing XI.
It remains to be seen if Kohli persists with wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant, who scored 4 and 0 in the two matches or gives him another chance. @@@@@@Virat Kohli appreciates TN player Washoington Sundar Team India won the T20 serioes against West Indies. And playing both the matches, Tamilnadu offie Washing Sundar made an impact picking wickets opening the bowling. The Indian skipper had words of praise for Washington Sundar for opening the bowling well in both the matches.
The Chennai bowler succeeded in providing the breakthrough in both the games. 'Starting with the new ball, the way Sundar has bowled against guys who come hard at the ball, he's done a tremendous job. The composure he's shown has been outstanding. He's become fitter, leaner and is very handy with the bat as well. He is definitely going to be a factor for us,' he said.
