Patel rose to the occasion to score an unbeaten 64 embellished off just 35 balls to help India surpass a huge 312-run target set by the West Indies. His innings was embellished with five sixes and three fours.
“When I went out, I aimed for 10-11 an over. We thought it could be done as we have IPL experience," Patel, who was adjudged man of the match, said.
The Shikhar Dhawan-led India team now has a 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
