India displayed an all-round performance to defeat West Indies by 22 runs through Duckworth-Lewis method at  Lauderhill in the US last night. With this win, the Men in Blue have gained a 2-0 unassailable lead in the three-match series.

Chasing 168, West Indies got off to bad start as the side lost its opener Evin Lewis in the second over as Bhuvneshwar Kumar sent him back to the pavilion. Rovman Powell and Nicholas Pooran retrieved the innings for West Indies as the duo stitched together a partnership of 76 runs, which saw Powell bringing up his half-century.

With Windies at 98/4 in 15.3 overs, the match was stopped and the players were taken off the field due to rain. The players did not take the field, and India won the match by 22 runs.

Earlier, Rohit Sharma's knock of 67 runs off 51 balls enabled India to post the score of 167 runs in the allotted twenty overs after opting to bat first. Rohit Sharma hit three sixes in his innings, and as a result, he became the batsman with the most number of sixes in the T20I format. 
The right-handed batsman now has 106 sixes in the format whereas Gayle has 105. 

The Men in Blue and West Indies would next meet in the final T20I of the three-match series tomorrow.
