India Chases Highest Ever In T20, But Falls Short Of One Run Against West Indies

If cricket is the game that needs a perfect opening, it is also the game that requires perfect wrapping too. The T20I match between India and West Indies today in Florida witnessed several records broken, but the so-called Dhoni team fell short of two runs out of one ball.

India fell agonizingly short of target 246 runs by only one run, foiling all the efforts of an unbeaten maiden century off 46 balls of Rahul, who pushed the country on the brink of completing highest ever successful run-chase in T20s.

MS Dhoni had to score 8 runs in the last over, but could gently make it to seven against Bravo deliveries. India conceded 245.

The West Indies batsmen, led by Evin Lewis, played a massive cricket and scored 245/6.

Lewis played his second ever T20 and scored a ton in 48 balls with nine sixes as well as five fours.

Brief score: West Indies 245/6 (Evin Lewis 100, Johnson Charles 79) vs India (Ravindra Jadeja 2/39, Jasprit Bumrah 2/47) beat India 244/4 (KL Rahul 110*, Rohit Sharma 62; Dwayne Bravo 2/37) by one run
