  • The skipper, Virat Kohli walks out into the middle. The chase master has to bring out his 'A' game in this match.
  • So 255 is the revised target for India! It is not going to be easy. They need to bat well. The boundaries are short and they have the batting line-up but if West Indies bowl well, you can back them to level the series. Stay tuned for the chase in a while.
  • The Indian bowlers had no answers to the onslaught early on but as the game progressed, they bowled better. Shami was the pick. Jadeja was excellent too. Chahal, except for his last over had a good day in the office. Khaleel was expensive but he had three wickets to his name.
  • After the break though, West Indies did not quite get going. They lost wickets regularly, at one stage, it seemed they would struggle to get past the 220-run mark but Pooran's cameo and some boundaries towards the end saw them go past it by 20 runs.
  • A big last over for the Windies and they surely have the advantage as they walk into the break. India though did really well to crawl back into the game after the rain break. Initially, after electing to bat, Gayle and Lewis gave the Indian bowlers a real hammering in Powerplay 1. They two added 115 within 11 overs before Lewis was dismissed. Gayle too followed after getting to a half ton. India then managed to crawl back into the game as they brought the run rate down to 7. Rain then intervened. It was a long, long delay and then we had a 35-over per game side.
  • 34.6 FOUR! A boundary to end the innings! 15 from the last over. This is outside off, Allen swings but it goes off the outside edge past the short third man fielder and into the fence. WEST INDIES END WITH 240/7!
  • 34.5 A dot now! Slower one outside off, Allen looks to slap it but misses.
  • Keemo Paul is the next man in.
  • 34.4 OUT! In the air... taken! A very good catch by Pant there. Makes amends for the dropped catch of Brathwaite early on. However, not after he struck a couple of boundaries. Khaleel goes length again and it is another slower one. Brathwaite looks to go big on the leg side but gets a top edge. It goes high up in the air, Rishabh Pant runs back, calls for it and takes a well-judged catch. Also, it was not easy as he had only one glove on. Timely wicket again as Brathwaite had started to find the boundaries.
  • 34.3 FOUR! Streaky! West Indies won't mind how they come as long as they come. A low full toss on the pads, Carlos Brathwaite swings but gets an inside edge down to the fine leg boundary. 11 from the first three balls.
  • 34.2 SIX! Brathwaite finally connects with one and he clears the fence with ease. This is a slower one outside off, Brathwaite waits for it and then powers it over the long off fence for a biggie.
  • 34.1 A bye! Slower one outside off, Allen looks to go downtown but misses. The ball bounces in front of the keeper so he does not collect it cleanly. A run is stolen.
  • 33.6 Does so excellently! Just the 4 from the over. Another top class delivery. A yorker outside off. Brathwaite fails to jam it out. 225/6
  • 33.5 Brilliant bowling! Nothing you can do there. A yorker on middle, Allen jams it down to long on for one. Needs to end the over well though.
  • 33.4 A dot! Gold dust at this stage! Full and on off, Allen mistimes it back to the bowler.
  • 33.3 Another single! Another full toss which Brathwaite fails to make use off. He hits it through square leg for one.
  • 33.2 Very full again on middle, Allen hits it down to long off and takes another run.
  • 33.1 A full toss, Brathwaite does not take full toll of it as he hits it down to long off for one.
  • Mohammed Shami is back to bowl his last over. 6-1-46-2 so far.
  • 32.6 Good fielding placement! Saves a boundary! This is fuller and outside off, Allen swings but it goes off the outside edge to the man at short third man who is quite fine. Another excellent over for India. Just the 4 runs and a wicket from it. 221/6
  • Fabian Allen is the man to replace the skipper.
  • 32.5 OUT! Holder holes out! Khaleel gets another one! He bowls another slower one and once again the line is the key here. It is outside off. Holder looks to drag it over the long on fielder but hits it flat and straight to him. Kohli makes no mistake. India managing to finish strongly here.
  • 32.4 Good delivery! A slower one outside off, Holder looks to go over long on but misses. Dots are even more precious at this stage.
  • 32.3 Bowls it wide outside off, making Brathwaite stretch for the ball. Carlos does so and hits it down to long off for only one. Singles won't harm India at the moment.
  • 32.2 Fuller and outside off, CB hits it through covers and takes two.
  • 32.1 Slower one on off, Holder hits it over the bowler's head. He takes one and wants a second but is sent back.
  • Khaleel Ahmed comes back into the attack now.
  • 31.6 A dot to end! Just the single from the 32nd. Brilliant one. This is on off, CB defends it out. 217/5
  • 31.5 DROPPED! An easy catch there has been put down by Pant. Another top delivery by Jadeja. This is on off and turns away. Brathwaite looks to defend again but once again does inside the line. It goes off the outside edge but Pant does not hang on. This could be costly as Brathwaite can make a difference towards the end.
  • 31.4 An appeal but the umpire shakes his head. Too high. On middle and it once again turns away. Brathwaite looks to defend but is beaten by the turn. The ball hits him high on the pads.
  • 31.3 Squares him up there! This is on off and spins away. Brathwaite looks to defend but is beaten.
  • 31.2 Slightly fuller, this is hit down to long off for one.
  • 31.1 Big turn! This is flatter and on middle, it pitches and turns away. Holder initially looks to push at it but then bails out seeing the turn.
  • 30.6 A dot to end a successful over by Shami. This is fuller on off, CB strokes it to covers. 216/5
  • 30.5 Fuller in length again, Holder plays it down towards long on. They take one and Holder thinks of a second but then bails out.
  • 30.4 A yorker on off, Brathwaite jams it out towards point for one.
  • 30.3 Very full again on off, Holder hits it down to long off for one.
  • 30.2 Fuller and around off, Holder drives it square on the off side for two.
  • Carlos Brathwaite walks out to the middle to partner his skipper.
  • 30.1 OUT! Straight to the man! This is a big, big wicket as Pooran was really striking it well out there. Shami strikes once again. A soft dismissal to be honest and Pooran will be very disappointed. Shami bowls it fuller and around the leg stump. Pooran half-heartedly flicks it. He does not get a lot of power behind it and hence, not even the distance. It goes towards Manish Pandey, the sub, at long on who takes it. A good cameo from Pooran comes to an end but West Indies would have loved for him to stay out there. He though has provided the much-needed impetus they needed after the break.
  • Mohammed Shami is back into the attack now.
  • 29.6 A single to end another excellent over for West Indies. 17 from this over, 28 from the last two. This is on the pads, Pooran works it through square leg for one. 211/4
  • 29.5 SIX! Pooran is dealing in sixes! He is really enjoying facing the left-arm spinner. He shuffles across and plays the slog sweep again. Hits it over the square leg fence. Second biggie in the over.
  • 29.4 On the pads, Holder works it through mid-wicket for one.
  • 29.3 A single now! This is outside off again, Pooran guides it towards short third man for one.
  • 29.3 WIDE! Pressure, pressure! This is outside off, Pooran shoulders arms to this one. Wided.
  • 29.2 SIX! Another terrific shot by Pooran. This is bowled outside off and it is turning back in. Pooran goes down on one knee and slog sweeps it over the mid-wicket fence for a biggie.
  • 29.1 Fires it on the pads, it is worked down to long on for one.
  • 28.6 A single to finish a top over for West Indies. This is fuller on off, Holder strokes it through covers for one. Chahal finishes off his spell with figures of 7-0-32-1. 194/4
  • 28.5 A single to follow the biggie! He fires it outside off, Pooran hits it through point for one.
  • 28.4 SIX! That is colossal! Some hit by Pooran. Chahal bowls this one too short. Too easy for Pooran. He goes back and pulls it over the mid-wicket fence. It almost goes outside the ground.
  • 28.4 Way too wide outside off, wided.
  • 28.3 Flatter and quicker outside off, NP looks to cut but is beaten by pace.
  • 28.2 On off, Holder hits it down to long on and a single is taken.
  • 28.1 Flatter and shorter on off, this is powered down to long off for one.
  • Powerplay 3 is on now. 5 fielders are allowed outside the circle. Yuzvendra Chahal to bowl out.
  • 27.6 Almost! This is fuller again and on middle, Pooran goes back but gets his bat down in time, it goes off the bottom part towards short fine leg for one. Another good over by Jadeja. 183/4
  • 27.5 Looks to be innovative, tries to play the reverse sweep but gets a bottom edge onto the pad.
  • 27.4 Flatter and outside off, Holder pushes it through covers for one.
  • 27.3 Slightly shorter and outside off, Pooran guides it towards point for one.
  • 27.2 Pooran comes down the track but Jadeja shortens the length. NP looks to flick but misses to get hit on the pads.
  • 27.1 Flatter and on off, Holder drops it towards cover for one.
  • 26.6 FOUR! There should have been a better effort by Shami, maybe a dive. First boundary after the delay and West Indies would hope, it would break the shackles. Fuller and around off, Pooran creams it to the right of mid off. Shami runs to his right but does not put the dive in and the ball races away to the fence after going past him. The 6th ball spoils the over somewhat. 179/4
  • 26.5 A couple now! Slightly shorter around off, Pooran pulls it towards wide long on and takes two.
  • 26.4 This is top class fielding! Jadhav is the man. He saves three. India have their tails up at the moment. This is outside off, Holder's idea is right as he tries to guide it past short third man. Almost executes it well but Jadhav there dives to his left and stops it.
  • 26.3 Three dots in a row! West Indies are struggling to score runs here. This is shorter and outside off, Holder guides it to point.
  • 26.2 Two dots in a row! Slightly shorter and outside off, Holder looks to guide it towards point but misses.
  • 26.1 Good start by Khaleel too. This is around off and it is angling away. Holder looks to push at it but misses.
  • Khaleel Ahmed is back into the attack now.
  • 25.6 Just a single and a wicket from the over! Top class. This is on off, Holder pushes it through covers for one. 172/4
  • 25.5 Another very good delivery. This is on off and it turns away. Holder looks to defend but is beaten by the away turn.
  • Jason Holder is the new man in for the West Indies. The skipper will be looking to provide some much needed momentum to this innings.
  • 25.4 OUT! BOWLED 'EM! This is top class stuff from the Indian bowlers. It was Shami in the last over and Jadeja in this one. The tight bowling has paid dividends here. He keeps firing it on the stumps. This time though the length is fuller. Hope does not read it, he goes back and looks to work it on the leg side. Misses and the stumps are shattered. Both the set batters back in the hut. India fighting their way back into the game here.
  • 25.3 Three dots in a row! On middle, Hope works it towards mid-wicket.
  • 25.2 Flatter and on middle, this is worked to mid-wicket.
  • 25.1 On off, it is pushed to covers.
  • 24.6 A dot to finish an excellent over! Also, he shows great athleticism here. This is full and on middle, Pooran jams it back towards the bowler. Shami leaps, collects it and fires it back at the stumps at the other end but misses. 171/3
  • Nicholas Pooran is the new man in.
  • 24.5 OUT! TIMBER! Top, top bowling from Shami. Excellent. He probably brought all his experience into play here. He kept bowling pacey deliveries and suddenly bowls a slower one on off. Hetmyer swings across the line. He is way too early in the shot, misses and the ball hits the off pole. It has not been a good start for West Indies after the break.
  • 24.4 A couple off the inner half! Fuller and on the pads, Hetmyer swings and it goes off the inner half through backward square leg for two. 50-run stand up between the two. They need to up the ante now.
  • 24.3 A dot! Very full again on off, Hetmyer hits it hard but straight to mid off.
  • 24.2 Another very full ball, all Hope can do is jam it through covers for another run.
  • 24.1 Very full and on middle, difficult to get under those. Hetmyer hits it down to long on for one.
  • 23.6 A dot to end a good first over by Jadeja. This is flatter and on off, turns away. Hope plays it towards cover. 167/2
  • 23.5 Slightly shorter and outside off, Hetmyer hits it with the turn through wide mid on for one.
  • 23.4 Flatter and outside off, Hetmyer goes back and pushes it to covers.
  • 23.3 Now brings the reverse sweep out but can't beat short third man. A single.
  • 23.2 NOT OUT! That is why, as Hope has dragged his foot back in. This is fired in on off, Hope looks to go downtown but the ball turns away and beats the outside edge. Pant does well to collect the ball and whip the bails off. The umpire takes it upstairs and replays show that Hope drags his feet out but did manage to get it back in time.
  • A stumping appeal has been taken upstairs. The Indians do not seem very excited.
  • 23.1 Flatter and shorter on middle, Hetmyer is hurried into the pull, he mistimes it through square leg for one.
  • Ravindra Jadeja is on!
  • 22.6 A dot to end the first over after the break! A yorker on middle, Hope jams it out to point. 164/2
  • 22.5 Nicely played! This is fuller and around off, Hope strokes it wide of covers for two.
  • 22.4 On off and on a length, it skids through. Hope keeps it out.
  • 22.3 Shorter and on the body, Hetmyer looks to pull but gets an inside edge onto the body. It rolls on the off side for one.
  • 22.2 A good short one. Hope though gets on top of the bounce and pulls it through square leg. It rolls slow off the grass, the outfield seems slow so just a run.
  • 22.2 A short one but down the leg side, it has been wided!
  • 22.1 A single to start after the delay! A short ball around off, Hetmyer guides it through backward point for one.
  • We are finally all set to resume! The players make their way out to the middle. Yuzvendra Chahal is seen asking for the ball from the umpire so he may start. Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope will resume their innings. However, it is not Chahal who is going to bowl, it is Mohammad Shami. Here we go...

  • Update 1155 local (1535 GMT) - Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but it has started to rain again. It was expected that the play would start at 1200 local but it has been delayed and there is no news as to when it will begin. Let's just hope it starts soon.
  • Update 1150 local (1530 GMT) - Good news! The rain has stopped so it was just a passing shower and the covers are off too. Let us hope action resumes quickly.
  • Update 1132 local (1532 GMT) - The rain is back and the players make their way towards the pavilion. The covers are brought on again. This too seems to be a passing shower. However, it does not seem to be one now as more covers are coming on. Also, it is coming down hard.

  • DRINKS! Shimron Hetmyer is the new man in for the Windies. Lewis and Gayle have hit the Indian bowlers all over the park but with both of them back in the hut now, India have a chance to turn the tide.
  • 11.4 OUT! CAUGHT! Gayle's innings comes to an end. And maybe his international career as well. A standing ovation as he walks off. Not only that, all the Indian players walk upto him, shake his hand and congratulate him as he walks off. A nice gesture as by the Indian players, also speaks a lot about Gayle and shows what a legend he has been. He was at his destructive best today. Not only I, but many out there would have hoped for him to continue but all good things must come to an end right? He though has done his job. Khaleel gets his first. A much-needed wicket for the youngster as he was being hit to all ends of the park. This will really make him feel good as he has got the man who was hitting him to all ends of the park. He bowls another ball which is slightly short and outside off. Gayle slaps it hard but flat towards mid off. Kohli there dives forward and takes it. Two wickets in quick succession for India. Both the openers who were going great are back.
  • 11.3 In the air... but safe! Gayle goes after this shorter one but top edges it, the ball lands in the long off region but unfortunately no fielder there. He survives.

  • 11.1 Good length ball on the off pole, Gayle pushes it back towards Khaleel.
  • 10.6 A dot to end a brilliant first over by Chahal! This is on off, Hope blocks it out. 115/1
  • Shai Hope is the new man in for West Indies.
  • 10.5 OUT! In the air... taken! Chahal has provided the breakthrough, like he has done so many times in the past. The stand which was taking the game away from India has been broken. The Indian fans and the players will breathe a small sigh of relief here. Lewis continues to play the attacking mode. he goes for the slog sweep but picks the wrong ball. It is the googly, Lewis looks to go against the turn but only manages a top edge. It goes high up in the air towards long on. Dhawan settles under it and takes it. End of an entertaining innings by Lewis and a wonderful partnership. India though now have a chance to pull things back a little.
  • 10.4 Another googly on off, Gayle pushes it towards cover for one.
  • 10.3 Well bowled! A googly on off, Gayle does not pick it. He looks to put bat on ball but misses.
  • 10.2 Flatter and on middle, Gayle defends it onto the ground.
  • 10.1 Down the leg side, Gayle looks to paddle it but it goes off the top edge but well short of short fine leg.
  • Powerplay 2 is on now. 4 fielders are allowed outside the circle. Yuzvendra Chahal to bowl the first over of powerplay 2.
  • 9.6 Swing and a miss! This is on a length and outside off, Lewis swings hard but misses. A dot to end but a brilliant, brilliant Powerplay for West Indies. They are 114 for 0 in it. 114/0
  • 9.5 Shorter and outside off, Lewis looks to cut but ends up chopping it.
  • 9.4 Safe again! Everything going gayle's way at the moment. Khaleel bowls this short and outside off, Gayle looks to go big again but ends up slicing it towards deep point. The fielder from point runs backwards towards the ball. Rohit in the deep is sprinting to his right but both don't get there. A single in the end.
  • Something's wrong with Pant! He is seen removing his pads and is in some pain. The physio is out but not sure what has happened to him.
  • 9.3 FOUR! Just over! Khaleel has been taken to the cleaners here. This is short and outside off, Gayle slaps it over the mid on fielder and it races away to the fence.
  • 9.2 SIX! A one-handed biggie! Khaleel too has a smile on his face. He goes short again and on the body. Gayle pulls it over square leg and it just about clears the fence. 12 from the first two balls.
  • 9.1 SIX! 100 up and Gayle's fifty too. He brings them up in style. This has been some hitting from him. 103 in 55 balls is the team's score and Gayle has 54 out of them in 30 balls. He was on the back foot waiting for the short one. Khaleel bowls it short and this is pulled way over the mid-wicket fence.
  • 8.6 FOUR! 18 from this over! The run rate is just below 11 now! This is some start for the Windies. Kumar bowls this fuller and outside off, Lewis lofts it over the mid off fielder and it goes for a one bounce boundary. 97/0

  • 7.6 Goes short to Gayle again! He mistimes his pull through mid-wicket for one as there is a fielder in the deep. Khaleel too starts expensively. 16 from the over. West Indies are almost going at 10 per over. 500 today? 79/0

  • Khaleel Ahmed is on now! India need a wicket here, can he deliver?
  • 6.6 On the pads, this is worked through square leg for one. Lewis will keep strike and another good over for West Indies comes to an end. Also, 50 have been scored in the last 3 overs. Unreal stuff! 63/0
  • 6.5 Goes back to bowling length on middle, Lewis defends it. A rare defensive stroke and a rare dot ball.
  • 6.4 SIX! The Indian bowlers are just not sure where to bowl at the moment! Kumar goes short again but it is on the body, Lewis helps it on its way over the fine leg fence.
  • 6.4 WIDE! Goes short again and on middle, Lewis ducks under it. Wided.
  • 6.3 In the air... safe! Maybe the fielder could have put in a better effort. This is shorter and on the body, Gayle looks to pull but does not get on top of the bounce. He gets a top edge which goes to the right of the deep square leg fielder. He runs to the ball but it lands just ahead of him. A run taken.
  • 6.2 FOUR! Stand and deliver! That is exactly what Gayle is doing here. Once again it is not right off the middle but the result is what he wanted. This is full and outside off, Gayle drags it through mid on and bags a boundary.
  • 6.1 That is a very good shot but just for one! 50 up for West Indies. Excellent start for them. This is on a good length and around off, Lewis creams it through covers. There is a fielder in the deep so just the one.
  • 5.6 FOUR! 20 from the over! Runs flowing here. Bowl short, he would hit you for a boundary, you bowl full, Gayle would do the same. This is outside off and fuller. Gayle hits it through covers and the ball races away to the fence. 49/0

  • 5.1 SIX! In the air... and all the way! Consecutive sixes for West Indies. This is on middle and on a length. Gayle moves his front leg out of the way and stretches his arms, he lofts it over the bowler's head and it goes all the way.
  • 4.6 SIX! High and handsome! 16 from the over. The West Indies openers seem to have come out with intent. This is right in Lewis' zone and he goes after it. Full and outside off, Evin lofts it over covers and it goes all the way. West Indies are off to a very good start here. 29/0
  • 4.6 WIDE! Kumar now goes for a slower bumper but there is tennis ball like bounce on this one. It bounces way over the batter's head and it has been wided.
  • 4.5 Well bowled! A slower yorker on middle, Lewis though is up for the challenge as he gets his bat down in time and jams it out.
  • 4.4 FOUR! Back-to-back boundaries! This was not right off the middle but hit well enough. The key here was that he picked the length early. It was slightly short and on middle, Lewis goes back and heaves it over wide mid on and a boundary results.

West Indies Vs India Live Score (ODI) Ball by Ball Commentary

  • End of this game which means end of the ODI series. India win yet another series and they would now be trying to eye the Test series. For West Indies, it is their last chance to win a trophy. It is a two-game Test series and the first one begins at 22nd August at 0930 local (1330 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye!
  • Indian skipper, Man of the Match and Man of the Series, Virat Kohli, says the last couple of games have presented a challenge. He though feels Iyer was brilliant in this game, he was the game-changer and Iyer never let pressure build on him. Further adds he wants his teammates to take responsibility and Iyer is really doing well, not only in this game, but in the last one too, he is a very talented youngster. Says the finger is fine for now, he does not think it is broken and he should be okay for the first Test. Admits they were a bit nervous when the rain came as West Indies played really well initially but they came back strong after the break and the bowlers did a very good job. Ends by saying they are confident heading into the Test series and are looking forward to it.
  • West Indies skipper, Jason Holder, says the rain break changed the course of the game, it was not easy to start again on this surface, the batters though still did a good job. He felt they were always in the game, credits the Indian players for the way they played but admits they too were not good enough with the ball. Further adds they have let themselves down a lot in the recent past and they need to learn more and understand a lot more and somehow cross the hurdles. States the team is a work in progress, they need to take a closer look at their eleven and hope they learn quickly. Ends by saying they need to turn things around in the red-ball format now.
  • Earlier in the day, the Windies after electing to bat, got off to an absolute flier. However, the rain break probably played against them as after that they struggled to score. They still would have been happy at the halfway mark as they had a score which was termed to be above par on this surface but India chased it down quite easily.
  • The Windies bowling was just not upto the mark! They were too short and a little wayward too. Chase and Allen did keep it tight for a while. The latter was the pick of the bowlers. But they had no answers once Iyer stepped on the gas. The pacers needed to step up but nor could they pick wickets but also leaked runs easily.
  • Chasing something more than a run-a-ball, the Indian openers came out all guns blazing. They started to score freely but Rohit was then run out. Dhawan and Kohli though continued the counter-attack and brought things back on track with a 66-run stand. However, Pant and Dhawan fell in quick succession and India at that time were in a spot of bother but Iyer with his captain, played himself in and once he got his eye in, hit the bowlers at will. He added a 120-run stand with Kohli with him scoring a half ton. He was the aggressor in that stand and scored more runs than Kohli in it. His knock also did not let any pressure build on Kohli. Iyer though will be disappointed he did not stay there till the end but Kohli ensured he was the one who hit the winning runs bringing up his ton in the process. All-in-all an excellent chase by the Indians.
  • 255 a tough chase on this tacky wicket? Think twice! India have done this quite easily. Heroes for them - their skipper, run machine, chase master, call him what you want as you are going to fall short of superlatives, Virat Kohli. And the other, a youngster, one who is looking to make a name for himself, maybe someone who could fill that no. 4 spot, Shreyas Iyer. It is their partnership which has given India not only a victory in this game but also the series.

He works this full ball on middle towards long on to get to that milestone. Takes the helmet off and soaks in the applause. The best in this format.
  • 30.4 FOUR! Very nicely played! Kohli moves onto 99. This is just outside off, Kohli opens the face of the bat at the very end and guides it past short third man for a boundary.

He gets there by guiding this short ball outside off through backward point. He just used the pace of the bowler there. Also, the 100-run stand is up. This has been a partnership of high quality. They have taken India to the brink of victory. Not done yet.

  • 17.2 Iyer comes down the track but does not get to the pitch of the ball, he adjusts and works it through square leg for one.

  • DRINKS! So, India now need 144 off 18 overs to get across the line as the skipper Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer are out in the middle. The batting coming in next looks a bit thin and it is very important for India that these two have a strong partnership here.

  • 14.6 On the stumps, this is kept out. 20 overs left, 157 more needed. 98/3

  • 12.5 Almost another one! This is shorter and outside off, Kohli looks to cut but ends up chopping it.
  • Shreyas Iyer is the one who replaces Pant.
  • 12.4 OUT! This is just unbelievable! Pant has once again thrown it away and not for the first time. India now in big trouble here. What was he trying to do here! The first ball he faces he comes down the track and looks to whip it over the leg side. The ball goes on with the angle and hence a leading edge which goes high up in the air. Paul takes another catch, this time by backtracking. Kohli has a disappointed look on his face and rightly so. A first-baller for Pant.
  • 12.3 Floats it up on off, this is hit through covers for one.
  • Rishabh Pant is the new man in for the Men In Blue.
  • 12.2 OUT! In the air... Keemo Paul does not look very confident under it, he though takes it in the end. A good, good catch and the pressure built by West Indies in the last few overs has paid off. Dhawan looks to take on the left-arm spinner as he comes down the track. Tries to go over the mid off fielder but only manages to hit it high up in the air as he does not get to the pitch of the ball.

  • Roston Chase is on now! Spin from both ends then.
  • 10.6 This is fired on the pads, Kohli works it through mid-wicket and gets to the other end. 6 from the over, West Indies need a few more tight overs like these. 89/1

  • 9.2 WIDE! Shorter and down the leg side, Dhawan looks to pull but misses. Wided.
  • 9.1 Shorter and outside off, Kohli hits it through covers for one. 50-run stand up. They are going along nicely especially after the loss of Rohit. They hold the key as the batters coming in do not have a lot of experience.
  • 8.6 A single to finish another productive over for India. This is on off, Kohli guides it to short third man for one. 74/1

  • 6.5 FOUR! This shot had class written all over it. This is full and outside off, it is the slower one. Kohli waits for it and then creams it through covers for a boundary. Also, he beat two fielders there, one at short covers and the other at normal covers.

A run is also added to the total.

There was a run to be honest. This is a shortish ball outside off, Dhawan guides it towards backward point. Rohit wants a run but seeing the diving stop of Allen, Dhawan sends him back. Rohit is almost halfway down the wicket. He now turns and tries to get back in. Allen picks the ball up and throws it to the bowler who collects it and dislodges the bails. The umpire takes it upstairs. Relays roll in and they show Rohit's dive does not save him. A big wicket for West Indies as Rohit was looking good in the few balls he faced. 230 more needed.
