India vs West Indies: Khaleel Ahmed ‘extremely excited’ to represent the country

The India openers had to weather some good fast bowling by West Indies at the start, but from the moment Rohit broke the shackles with a six off the first ball of spin he faced, he looked unstoppable. While the match was setup by Rohit Sharma, who produced yet another scintillating ton to help India amass 195/2, the bowlers did their bit as well restricting the Windies to 124/9.

Rohit has now been involved in hundred-run partnerships on eight occasions, surpassing the record of seven such stands he jointly held with Martin Guptill of New Zealand and Alex Hales of England. You don't have to make too many changes to your game because you already have shared the dressing room with worldwide players, he said."When you come into the Indian team, by then you had already learned professionalism and know how to correct your mistakes".

Khaleel also revealed that he is working on his bowling with bowling coach Bharat Arun at the nets to get better with each passing day. Everyone who came out to watch the game will go home with a smile.

"You know Dhawan's natural instinct is to put pressure on the bowlers, but we made a decision to take our time". You know Dhawan's natural instinct is to put pressure on the bowlers, but we made a decision to take our time.

"I was reading the pitch when we were batting", he said.

After the fall of Dhawan, who was caught brilliantly in the deep by Nicholas Pooran off Allen, and Rishabh Pant in quick succession to pull shots, Rohit forged an unbroken 62-run stand with K.L. Rahul (26) as the host collected 66 runs in the last five overs, including 20-plus runs in two.

The win was momentous for a number of reasons, not just that Democrats can now challenge Trump and the Republican party agenda. Omar, 36, was born in Somalia but fled with her family to Kenya as a refugee when she was 8.

Khaleel Ahmed had already dismissed openers Shai Hope (6) and Shimron Hetmyer (15) by that stage, as the tourists struggled with the bat for a second successive outing.

Ahmed bowled Hope in his very first over and then got the risky Hetmyer caught at long on, three overs later, with his left-arm pace.

Kieron Pollard almost collided with Jasprit Bumrah while the latter was completing a caught and bowled chance.

West Indies' misery in the two-month long tour was compounded as they suffered yet another series defeated after losing the Test series 0-2 and subsequently the one dayers by 1-3 margin.

"We are still trying to find the right opening combination. Hopefully, in the third game we'll put up a better performance and come up with a win".
