Virat Kohli‘s Indian cricket team completed a 3-0 sweep of West Indies in Guyana on Tuesday to continue their strong form on tour.

Having taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match T20I series versus over the weekend in Florida, India landed at Providence and beat West Indies by seven wickets in the final T20I.

This made it six consecutive T20I wins over West Indies dating back to July 2017.

India are ranked fifth in T20Is, while defending T20 World Cup champions West Indies are at ninth place.

Starring in his second T2oI for India – and third match overall – was pace bowler Deepak Chahar who had exceptional figures of 4/3 from three overs after Kohli opted to field. Following the win, Kohli singled out Chahar for his “lethal” skill with the new ball.

Kohli also commended Rishabh Pant, who finished the match with a six to end on 65 not out off 42 balls – his highest score in T20Is.

Kohli – who himself scored 59 off 45 balls – said that 21-year-old Pant is “the future, definitely”.

The tour now shifts into ODI mode with the first of three matches between India and West Indies on Thursday.

“We want to be as professional as possible in the ODIs and Tests. We want results, to win games of cricket,” said Kohli. “The West Indies ODI team is even stronger, so it will be hard work, but we will try to have fun as a team for a month.”
