WI vs IND - The 2nd T20I between West Indies and India was started after a delay of 3 hours from the expected time due to unavoidable circumstances. With this, the Indian fans were glued to their TV at 11 PM, and Indian captain Rohit Sharma shocked one and all after getting dismissed on the first delivery.

Batting first, Indian captain Rohit Sharma was on strike for the first ball as Obed McCoy was handed the responsibility for the first over. Rohit was the top scorer for team India in the first T20I as India posted 190 on a tough pitch and went on to win the match by 68 runs. Rohit scored 64 runs in the first match with 7 fours & 2 sixes. 


Rohit was eyeing another win in the match and then forced West Indies to play a do-or-die game for the rest of the series. However, Obed McCoy had other plans. The West Indian pacer bowled a skiddy short ball angled across the Indian skipper. Rohit was neither forward nor back - poked half-heartedly and sent a thick leading edge to Akeal Hosein at backward point. Rohit was beaten with extra pace and walked back with a wry smile after getting dismissed for a golden duck. 

McCoy went on to bowl the over without conceding a run. Moreover, the bowler struck with his first ball in his second over as he removed Suryakumar Yadav for 11 runs.
