Dominant India complete series sweep

Jamaica: India beat Jamaica 2-0 here today in Kingston in the two match T20I series, to go with their 3-0  ODI series win and completed a series whitewash. For the second game running Jamaica won the toss and decided to bat first. Deepak Malik struck thrice in the game’s second over to leave the hosts tottering at 9/3. What followed was a rearguard action of the highest sort as Gregory Stewart and Graham put on 113 runs together for the 4th wicket. This partnership enabled the hosts to post a decent total of 147/6 in 20 overs.

Chasing a total at a run rate of 7.4 RPO the Indians were in a hurry to finish and started with a bang from the very first ball and they never looked back. It was Sunil Ramesh who did the bulk of the scoring as he smashed the Jamaica bowlers hammer and tongs. He brought up his second century in as many games as India completed an easy 10 wicket win with over 11 overs to spare.
