India has clinched the Twenty20 series against West indies with a nail-biting victory in the final match in Chennai. Chasing 182 to win, India won the match off the final ball with Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant at the crease.
However, it was a rocky start for India as it lost Rohit Sharma early on. But Sharma managed to hit a boundary and entered the elite club of batsmen with more than 200 boundaries in T20Is. With this, he joins Virat Kohli, New Zealand's Martin Guptill and Afghanistan's Mohammad Shahzad.
Among the other batsmen in the list of top five with most boundaries in T20Is are :
- Tillekratne Dilshan, 223
- Mohammed Shahzad, 218
- Virat Kohli, 214
- Martin Guptill/ Rohit Sharma, 200
- Brendon McCullum, 199
Games like these happen a lot. Especially in the IPL, these have happened a lot. We wanted to be ruthless and not take a backseat. This kind of performance gives a lot of confidence. We didn't want to be complacent and wanted to come out and win. As a team there is always scope for improvement.- Rohit Sharma, Indian cricketer
