India and West Indies met in the second semi-final of ICC T20 World Cup 2016 at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Both teams had won all their matches in the league stage but one, with India having gone down to New Zealand and West Indies to Afghanistan. India reached the semi-final after scraping through in a couple of razor-sharp matches but West Indies made it to the mark quite comfortably. West Indies won the all-important toss and put India in to bat. They were left ruing the decision as Virat Kohli’s unbeaten 89 led India to 192 for 2. Here are the highlights from India’s innings.

Team changes: India had to make a forced change, with Yuvraj Singh having injured himself in the virtual quarter-final against Australia. His replacement in the squad, Manish Pandey, was immediately drafted into the playing XI for the semi-final. However, India made another change as well; the severely out-of-form Shikhar Dhawan was dropped in favour of local boy Ajinkya Rahane. For West Indies, the changes were expected: Chris Gayle and the now-fit Lendl Simmons came back in place of the injured Andre Fletcher and Evin Lewis.

The Rohit Sharma show: After making scores of 5, 10, 18, and 12 in the tournament so far, Rohit finally got going on his home ground of Wankhede. It started with a six over long-on off Carlos Brathwaite in the third over of the match. In the next over, bowled by Suleiman Benn, Rohit got back-to-back boundaries through extra-cover and square leg. The final over of the power play was bowled by Andre Russell, and Rohit clubbed a waist-high full toss for six over square leg and followed it up with a straight six off the free hit. He ended the over with a pulled boundary to midwicket. He was finally dismissed in the eighth over, for a 31-ball 43. He had hit 3 fours and as many sixes.

Virat Kohli flirts with run outs: The ninth over of the match was bowled by Dwayne Bravo. The third ball was a no-ball. Kohli missed an attempted pull off the free hit, but inexplicably set off for a non-existent run. Wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin missed the stumps, and Kohli survived. Then Bravo too had a shy at the stumps and he missed too. Kohli had survived being run out twice off the same ball. But he was not done yet. Kohli worked the next ball away to square leg and set off for a tight second run. A better throw and a clean collect from Ramdin may have made life hard for Kohli, but once again he survived for the third time in two balls. READ: Virat Kohli s top 5 T20I chases

Ajinkya Rahane experiment successful: Shikhar Dhawan had been getting out early in virtually every game, and the Indian management finally grew impatient of his failures. Given the occasion and the ground, Rahane was drafted in as his replacement opener. The experiment proved successful as Rahane scored 40 off 35 balls to get India off to a solid start.

The unstoppable Kohli: India’s batting line-up has been overly reliant on Kohli throughout the tournament, and that did not change in the semi-final. After overcoming a nervous start, Kohli hit his strides and ended up playing another masterful innings. His unbeaten 89 came in 47 balls and included 11 fours and 1 six. He took India up to 192 for 2 in the process.
