Here are the top-10 individual innings from India-Windies T20 clashes.
#10 Rohit Sharma (62 runs off 28 balls), Lauderhill, 2016
Chasing a gigantic total of 246, India needed a rapid start and Rohit Sharma provided exactly that. He looked at his fluent best and stroked some exhilarating shots.
He made full use of the Powerplay and kept India in the hunt by not letting the scoring-rate fall from 10 an over. He hit 4 fours and 4 sixes in his brisk cameo and laid the platform for the chase for the coming batters.
#9 DJ Bravo (66 runs off 36 balls), Lords, 2009
India made a sub-par total of 153 in this super 8 clash of the 2009 t-20 world cup. West Indies were struggling at 42-2 when Gayle was dismissed in the 8th over.
Dwayne Bravo was sent ahead of experienced batters like Ram Naresh Sarwan and Shiv Narine Chanderpaul. The move turned out to be a masterstroke as Bravo put on a hitting masterclass at the home of cricket. He hit 4 boundaries and 3 maximums in his knock and got Windies over the line in the 19th over itself.
