In a battle between the batsmen of both the sides, KL Rahul and MS Dhoni almost took India over the line against West Indies in the first T20 at Florida before Dwayne Bravo's last over heroics. The Twitterati saluted KL Rahul for his ton, while Stuart Binny was joked about.
The final frontier

More than cricket, we need that
He is back
Too many sixes and fours
Dear west indies - play the live match now - not the highlights.. #IndvsWI— jalandar (@scriblng) August 27, 2016
After all, it is baseball country
This will be a game of Home Runs #IndvsWI— Gaurav jain (@gaugzz931) August 27, 2016
The perfect combo for T20
1) Short boundaries— Virat Obsessed (@SaiNikhita) August 27, 2016
2) Flat track
3) No swing
It surely will be a high scoring match #IndvsWI
Binny did not even get that record
Yuvi dropped for Binny.— Sorabh Pant (@hankypanty) August 27, 2016
Yuvi hit 6 6s in an over.
Binny almost got hit for 6 6s in an over.
He's literally the antithesis of Yuvi!#IndvsWI
Stuart Binny narrowly missed making a world record. Our sportsmen deserve our support despite such narrow misses. #IndvsWI— Rahul Roushan (@rahulroushan) August 27, 2016
West Indies hit at least a boundary in 19 of the 20 overs today. They did the same in the WT20 semi-final vs India. Both records. #IndvsWI— Bharath Seervi (@SeerviBharath) August 27, 2016
Don't remind me of exams
Evin Lewis...was like the out of syllabus question. Had no answers to his flawless hitting. #IndvsWI— Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) August 27, 2016
That's it, then
It's T20 and Ro'hit' is back
Rohit Sharma is like kumbhakarna.— Rashi Kakkar (@rashi_kakkar) August 27, 2016
The batsman in him only wakes up when the words T20 are said aloud.#IndvsWI
Test or T20, for Rahul it is all the same
I don't know how many he will get today but there is something about KL Rahul; in whichever form of the game he plays.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) August 27, 2016
Six hitting Dhoni is also back
Wish granted, tweet from Sehwag

The next big thing?
How did India
Jason Holder or Bhuvneshwar Kumar? Who will take more wickets?
Since start of 2014, Holder has taken 59 wickets at an avg of 34 while Kumar has taken just 38 wickets at an avg of 43. Kumar picked 3 wickets last time he played vs WI at this ground.
