However, the outcome had virtually been decided long before then, thanks mainly to another inept showing with the bat by the West Indies and a four-wicket haul from spinner Ravindra Jadeja.

West Indies' T20 skipper Carlos Brathwaite Thursday sweated it out at the Eden Gardens, a ground where his four successive sixes in a World T20 final made him a household name. And No. 4 slot as well.

While Virat Kohli-led team India made no changes in the playing XI that won the Monday's game, visitors made 2 changes in a bid to level the series in which they now trailed 1-2.

The team that could have become the first to deny India a series at home have given a great account of themselves. Kohli took 205 innings to achieve the landmark.

India's chase didn't begin well as Shikhar Dhawan chopped one on to the stumps against Oshane Thomas on 6 in the second over.

Rohit, who scored an unbeaten 63 to guide his team to victory, is now on 1030 runs with Bairstow in the third position with 1025.

Apart from skipper Jason Holder (25) and experienced all-rounder Marlon Samuels (24) no other West Indies batsmen applied themselves and went back cheaply. Pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar had Kieran Powell caught behind by MS Dhoni for a duck off the fourth ball, giving India their first wicket. Some good line and maximum use of the conditions at the Greenfield International Stadium combined with some poor judgement by the West Indies batsmen helped the hosts create havoc in the visitors batting line-up.

Led by Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma across the year in different tournaments, the Indian team dominated this format and won 14 matches out of the 20 played.

With the northeastern monsoon in full cry, the match could well end up shortened as the the weatherman has predicted a brief thunderstorm in the afternoon and late evening.
