In numbers: Frailties in powerplay reason behind India's inability to defend totals




Three years back India found themselves under similar conditions at the same venue against the same opposition, albeit a lot was at stake then. It was the World T20 semis and India were asked to bat first. The hosts performed impressively at Wankhede posting 192 runs at the loss of just two wickets. The West Indies chased down the total with two balls to spare and seven wickets at hand. Three years hence, India were still looking for answers if they would defend a total in T20Is. And the answer was an emphatic 67-run win. India’s top-three scored big, rampaging a total of 35 boundaries to amass 240/3 — their third-highest T20I total. In reply, Windies crumbled under pressure and India wrapped up the series 2-1. But the result stands contrary to all the talks and discussions ahead of the decider in Mumbai.
