Virat Kohli scored his sixth runs in the India vs West Indies 3rd T20I match and completed 1000 runs in the shortest international format at home. He became the first Indian and third batsmen overall to reach the prestigious landmark. The other two being New Zealand’s opening duo of Colin Munro and Martin Guptill. Piling up huge runs and thrashing the record books has become a  day to day habit of the Indian skipper and he will like to register some more records in the ongoing encounter. He has certainly got off to a good start and the batting juggernaut will want to convert it to a big score.  India Vs West Indies, Live Cricket Score 3rd T20I Match.

Earlier in the match, Kieron Pollard won the toss and elected to field first. The decision didn’t prove to be much fruitful as the home side get off to a flying start and put their side on the driver’s seat. Kohli came into bat after the fall of two wickets and joined forces with KL Rahul, who is also looking at his prime. The duo have already added more than fifty runs for the third wicket and let’s see, how much India will score in the first innings. Rohit Sharma Becomes First Indian Batsman to Complete 400 Sixes in International Cricket, Reaches Milestone During India vs West Indies 3rd T20I 2019.

The three-match rubber is currently poised at 1-1 and the ongoing clash is a deciding encounter. India have certainly got a desired start in the match and the team will want to ride on the opportunity they got. However, dew is expected to come to play later in the match which means the Indian bowlers will also need to be at their best in order to guide their side to victory.
