India showcased their T20I supremacy by posting 240/3 against West Indies in 2019. KL Rahul’s elegant 91 off 56 deliveries and Rohit Sharma’s quick 71 off 34 balls set the stage for a daunting target.

2) 244/4 vs West Indies in 2016:

Despite an impressive total of 244/4 in 20 overs against West Indies, India faced defeat in this high-scoring clash. KL Rahul’s unbeaten 110 off 51 deliveries and Rohit Sharma’s quickfire 62 off 28 balls powered India’s innings. However, Evin Lewis’s century for West Indies combined with effective bowling by Dwayne Bravo, resulted in a thrilling contest that ended in India’s one-run loss.

1) 260/5 vs Sri Lanka in 2017:

In a high-scoring encounter, India posted a substantial total of 260/5 in 20 overs against Sri Lanka. The dynamic duo of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul led the charge again with breathtaking performances.
