Virat Kohli brutally mocks opponent in epic unbeaten innings

Virat Kohli has been up to his old tricks again - dazzling with the bat and captivating with the mind games.

The India skipper put on a masterclass in a massive unbeaten knock to help his side wrap up their Twenty20 international win against the West Indies.

Kohli led a six-hitting fest against the Windies during a blistering unbeaten knock of 70 off 29 balls, guiding his team to a 67-run series-clinching victory in the third and final T20.

As extraordinary as his innings was, it was a running battle with Windies bowler Keswick Williams that stole the headlines.

The pair have been exchanging sledges throughout the series, but as is the case with most players coming up against Kohli, the superstar batsman came out on top.

Having dismissed Kohli in the previous match, Williams was desperate to repeat the dose and his first over to the captain provided a promising start.

However, in Williams' final over Kohli smashed the bowler for six with a towering shot over long-on, prompting a trademark reaction from the Indian skipper.

Kohli stared straight at Williams with his eyes and mouth open in mock astonishment as the ball sailed over the boundary for a maximum.

Cameras captured the close up of Kohli's face, as the internet exploded with reaction to the hilarious incident.

Asked to set a target in the decider at Wankhede Stadium, the hosts batted the Caribbean side out of the contest with an imposing total of 3-240 from their 20 overs.

In reply, the twice world champions in the format finished on 8-173 with captain Kieron Pollard top-scoring with 68 from 39, his innings studded with six sixes and five fours.

Hard-hitting West Indies opener Evin Lewis suffered soft tissue damage to his right knee while fielding and was unable to bat, dealing them a blow before their chase even started.

Once India's seamers reduced the tourists to 3-17 at the start of the fourth over, it was too much to ask even for the Caribbean power-hitters to turn the match around.

Shimron Hetmyer, who made 41 off 24, and Pollard added 74 for the fourth wicket to give West Indies some hope before left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav dismissed the former.

Kuldeep also dismissed the dangerous Jason Holder while Pollard holed out at wide long on off seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar after an entertaining knock at the stadium, which is the home to his Indian Premier League franchise Mumbai Indians.

Earlier, KL Rahul had top-scored with 91 from 56 balls and set the platform for India's massive score with an opening stand of 135 with Rohit Sharma, who made 71 from 34 deliveries.

Kohli smashed seven sixes, two more than his deputy Rohit, while Rahul went over the boundary ropes on four occasions.

The dismissal of Rohit and Rishabh Pant, who fell without scoring, in quick succession brought a temporary lull in India's scoring rate before Rahul and Kohli went on the attack.

The duo added 95 for the third wicket and provided the late flourish before Rahul fell in the final over.

The sides will next play three one-day internationals, beginning with the first match at Chennai on Sunday.
