Kesrick Williams turned the tables on India bagging the wicket of the dangerous Virat Kohli to get his team the first breakthrough in the one-off T20I yesterday. The 27-year old followed it up with a unique celebration where he was seen imitating tearing a paper and keeping it safe in his pocket.

Virat Kohli got off to a flying start and tore apart the West Indies bowling lineup with his exquisite strokeplay giving India a perfect start alongside Shikhar Dhawan. However, Kesrick Williams stepped up for the hosts and sent Kohli packing for 39 when the Indian skipper failed to clear the in-field and was caught at long-off by Sunil Narine. Williams then stopped looking at his palms and imitated ticking a box in the checklist after which he pretended to tear that list off a book and kept it inside his pocket signifying that he would cherish the wicket of the World No. 1 batsman in the shortest format forever in his career.

Williams, then, stopped looking at his palms and imitated ticking a box in the checklist after which he pretended to tear that list off a book and kept it inside his pocket signifying that he would cherish the wicket of the World No. 1 batsman in the shortest format forever in his career. The 27-year old followed it up with a direct hit to dismiss Shikhar Dhawan and later bagged Kedar Jadhav's wicket, as the hosts restricted India to a sub-par score of 190 on a batting-friendly pitch.

Evin Lewis then came out all guns blazing for the Windies and single-handedly decimated the Indian bowling to score his second T20I century and take his side over the finishing line with nine deliveries to spare.

AB de Villiers or Virat Kohli - who will score more runs?
