TAROUBA, Trinidad (AP) — India extended their winning streak on the tour of the West Indies with a 68-run victory on Friday in the first of five Twenty20 internationals.

India, which swept the three-match One-Day International series, chose to bat first and scored a competitive 190 for six.

Captain Rohit Sharma hit 64 in 44 balls at the top of the innings and No. 7 Dinesh Karthik was 41 not out off only 19 deliveries, with four fours and two sixes. Karthik and Ravichandran Ashwin (13 not out) shared an unbroken seventh-wicket partnership of 52 runs.

Pacer Alzarri Joseph took two for 46 in his four overs.

The West Indies reached 122 for eight in reply. Shamarh Brooks was the team’s top scorer with 20 off 15.

Brooks was bowled by medium pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who had bowling figures of one for 11 from his two overs. Arshdeep Singh (2-24), Ravi Bishnoi (2-26) and Ashwin (2-22) all contributed wickets from four overs each.

The last two matches of the T20 series will be played at Lauderhill in Florida.
