Magical Ravichandran Ashwin hits 200; Lendl Simmons becomes his latest bunny

New Delhi: An inspired performance from bowlers helped India bowled out West Indies for 143 runs inside 20 overs in the second Twenty20 International at Lauderhill on Sunday.

India's attack was led by Amit Mishra, who's playing his first match in United States. The leg-spinner took three wickets in his spell of four overs, conceding only 24 runs. It was in fact, his career best in T20Is.

But it was Ravichandran Ashwin, who hit milestones today. The 29-year-old spinner took his 200th T20I wicket in the form of Kieron Pollard, thus becoming's India's leading wicket-taker in this format.

Lendl Simmons was his other victim today. The West Indian, in the process, became Ashwin's latest bunny. It was the fifth time Ashwin has accounted for the West Indian's wicket.

Other batsman who fell victim to Ashwin five times is South African Faf du Plessis.
