Twitter reactions on India’s 3-0 T20I series victory: Twitter was elated on India whitewashing the series against Windies.

During the third T20I and last of the ongoing Windies’ tour of India at Chennai, India beat Windies by  runs to whitewash them 3-0 for the second time during this tour. Having won the Test series 2-0 and the ODI series 3-1, India all but dominated the opposition at home.

It was a 130-run partnership for the third wicket between opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan and wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant which guided India to a 182-run chase. The Delhi duo of southpaws, who will be playing together for Delhi Daredevils in the upcoming season of the IPL (Indian Premier League) played responsible innings in sealing victory for India.

Not for a moment did they appear to get carried away or to not play according to the situation in front of them. Having said that, with both of them getting out towards the end, India in a little spot of bother as they won the match on the last ball of the innings.

Dhawan scored his eighth T20I half-century and career-best score, 92 (62), with the help of 10 fours and two sixes. On the other hand, Pant scored his maiden T20I half-century, 58 (38), with the help of five fours and three sixes.

Earlier, Windies’ captain Carlos Brathwaite had won the toss and chose to bat. In their allotted quota of 20 overs, Windies scored 181-3. Nicolas Pooran, who came in to bat at No. 5, top-scored for his team as his maiden T20I half-century saw Windies posting a dominating total.

Pooran ended up scoring 53* (25) with the help of four fours and four sixes. With bowling figures of 4-0-28-2, Yuzvendra Chahal was the pick of the Indian bowlers after he wasn’t given a chance to play in the first two ODIs.
