Virat Kohli, the Indian captain, dismantled the West Indies bowling attack en route his unbeaten knock of 70 off 29 balls during the third and final Twenty20 International (T20I) in Mumbai on Wednesday. Virat Kohli's knock that came at a strike rate of 241.38, laced with four fours and seven sixes, helped India post an imposing total of 240/3 in their quota of 20 overs. In response, the hosts restricted the West Indies to 173/8 in their chase of 241 with skipper Kieron Pollard hitting a valiant 68 off 39 balls.
