Highlights

00:10 (IST)

That's all we have from the second T20I in Florida then. No presentation ceremony by the looks of it. Join us on Tuesday for the third T20. Until then, goodbye!

00:09 (IST)

So, we have the official confirmation. India win by D/L method. This was India's game anyway. Following a rusty start of the tour yesterday, they have produced a clinical performance in this second game. Hopefully in the third match, the team management will try out some youngsters.

India beat West Indies by 22 runs on DLS to seal the series. Rovman Powell ran them close with a quick-fire half century but a Krunal Pandya double dismissal brought things back in India's favour. It never really looked like West Indies were getting close with the required rate climbing all the time. The action now moves to Guyana for the third T20I but India have sealed the series already.

23:55 (IST)

Play has now been called off, according to the broadcasters. Which means, India win the 2nd T20I by 22 runs (DLS method) and collect an unassailable 2-0 series lead in the three-match series. 

23:49 (IST)

India and West Indies will now move to the Caribbean region with a T20I, three ODIs and two Tests. Here are the dates and timings for your calendar.

23:40 (IST)

Chances of play resuming looking very bleak now!

23:23 (IST)

RAIN! It has started to rain in Lauderhill now. All gloomy there and in chances of getting a restart. 

23:17 (IST)

India ahead on DLS

West Indies 98/4 at this stage with the DLS par score being 120. If no play from here on, India would take an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the T20I series. 

23:14 (IST)

Meanwhile, West Indies are currently 22 runs behind the DLS par score.

So, the umpires have asked the players to go off the field due to a threat of a passing shower. Dark rain cloud is hovering over the ground and the wind is picking up. However, I believe, since it is not raining yet, they could have continued for a while. Nevertheless, West Indies are well behind the DLS par score at this stage.

PRECAUTIONARY STOP! Commentator Ian Bishop informs the play has been stopped due to impending threat of rain and multiple reports claim there is a lightning warning. The surface and the square both have been covered now.

23:10 (IST)

COVERS ARE ON! With West Indies 98/4 after 15.3 overs, the players walk off the field. Plenty of dark clouds overhead and officials think wise to halt play for the moment. Pollard on 8 and Hetmyer on 6. Not raining yet so the decision to go off is a bit strange. 

23:06 (IST)

After 15 overs,West Indies 95/4 ( Kieron Pollard 6 , Shimron Hetmyer 5)

A boundary from the Ravindra Jadeja but more importantly, two chances to add to the wickets column. Pollard almost handing a catch back to Jadeja but the spinner is slightly slow in reacting and getting down. But the second chance, to Kohli, is the one that should have been held on to. Hetmyer tries to pull but doesn't get the right impact and Kohli's one-handed effort doesn't come off in the end. 

23:04 (IST)

FOUR! Kieron Pollard gets going now with a boundary. Latches on to a short ball and thumps it straight down the ground. No stopping that!

23:03 (IST)

After 14 overs,West Indies 89/4 ( Kieron Pollard 1 , Shimron Hetmyer 4)

With asking rate climbing, Krunal Pandya has made things even tougher for West Indies. He removes both the set batsmen in the same over. Pooran was the first to walk after having trouble scoring as is. But the wicket of Powell would hurt West Indies more. He had amassed 54 runs before Krunal got him leg before. Had he stayed, he could have given India some unnecessary headache. Now the onus on the middle and lower order to reduce the impact of a possible defeat.

23:01 (IST)

FOUR! Shimron Hetmyer is new to the crease and he gets going with a boundary. Pitched outside off by Krunal, slashed by Hetmyer and the desperate attempt to prevent the boundary comes to nought. WI 89/4

23:00 (IST)

Interestingly Jadeja is yet to bowl. Perhaps because of the presence of a left-hander at the crease. But now, with the Pooran threat is being removed, I think we will soon see him bowling in the death overs. At this stage, it is still India's game to lose from here.

WICKET! Another wicket for India and Krunal Pandya. He seems convinced he has Powell leg before wicket. West Indies opt to review but it doesn't help him in the end. It was pitching in line and going on to hit the leg stump. WI 85/4

22:56 (IST)

WICKET! Nicholas Pooran was having trouble getting the flow of runs going and he perishes in attempt at upping the ante. Smashes Krunal Pandya down the ground but only finds Manish Pandey at the long on boundary. Pandey with lovely fielding to tip-toe and stay within the playing region. Goes out and then in. Made it look so very easy! WI 84/3

Pooran c Manish Pandey b Krunal Pandya 19(34)

22:54 (IST)

A well-paced innings this for Powell. He is carrying his CPL form in this game. Meanwhile, the asking rate is close to 12 now and someone like Pooran has to get himself going.

After 13 overs,West Indies 84/2 ( Nicholas Pooran (W) 19 , Rovman Powell 54)

Eight run over for West Indies. Rovman Powell getting to his fifty run mark from 30 balls. But his main aim would be to steer West Indies over the finishing line. Navdeep Saini with not the greatest of second games and lack of discipline almost made India pay. Nothing on the free hit that followed a no ball-boundary. 

22:50 (IST)

FOUR! NO BALL! FREE HIT! Triple bonanza for West Indies. Navdeep Saini oversteps on the full length delivery to Powell. The Windies right hander with a smashing hit and no chance for the long off fielder to cut it off. 

22:49 (IST)

FIFTY! Great knock from Powell and he brings up his 50 from 30 balls. Just his second T20I fifty and how important this one could be if he could steer his side over the finishing line. Getting to the mark with a gentle single.

22:47 (IST)

After 12 overs,West Indies 75/2 ( Nicholas Pooran (W) 17 , Rovman Powell 49)

In what looked to be another boundaryless over by India, Krunal Pandya lets go of the momentum with a poor final ball. He kept the ball wicket-to-wicket, pitched up and close to the stumps for the first five balls. Until the sixth where he banged in short and Powell thrashed it for a six. 

22:45 (IST)

SIX! After a stellar over, Krunal Pandya with a poor ball to end with and he's been duely dispatched. Short and Powell goes into the attack. Not difficult to pick that up and that's a gift. WI 75/2

22:42 (IST)

10-overs comparison:

India - 77/1
West Indies - 62/2

After 11 overs,West Indies 66/2 ( Nicholas Pooran (W) 16 , Rovman Powell 42)

A much better over from Khaleel Ahmed now than his previous. Bringing in some variations, mixing things up and almost getting rid of the well-set Powell. Four runs from the over - all singles.

22:40 (IST)

CHANCE! Great chance for Virat Kohli to remove Powell but the Indian skipper is narrowly short in his diving effort. Banged in short by Khaleel and the sliced effort loops up. Kohli with a dart across but the dive is narrowly short. 

22:37 (IST)

After 10 overs,West Indies 62/2 ( Nicholas Pooran (W) 15 , Rovman Powell 40)

Krunal Pandya introduced by Virat Kohli now. Spinners on both ends. Goes for five runs and first over since the fourth to not produce a boundary. With 10 overs to go, West Indies need 106 runs to level the series.

22:33 (IST)

After 9 overs,West Indies 57/2 ( Nicholas Pooran (W) 14 , Rovman Powell 36)

WI went from 9/2 in 4 overs to 46/2 in 8 overs before Washington Sundar returned to curtail the flow of runs. But immediately gets spanked for a six! Powell is relentless and going all attack in chase. 

22:31 (IST)

SIX! Washington Sundar is back into the attack and Powell stays in attacking mode. Powell kneels and slog sweeps it over deep backward square for a big and meaty hit! WI 53/2

22:31 (IST)

Powell is using the pace of the Indian bowlers quite brilliantly. Perhaps, Kohli should consider attacking him with someone like Jadeja. Powell is not a great player against slow bowling and if he tries to hit across the line, someone like Jadeja with his accuracy has a decent chance against him.

22:29 (IST)

After 8 overs,West Indies 46/2 ( Nicholas Pooran (W) 11 , Rovman Powell 28)

Unlucky stuff for Navdeep Saini. He gets the ball going at 140kmph+ pace and that is his undoing in the end. Powell with an inside edge and outside edge to pickup two boundaries back-toback. Powell off to a flier!

22:28 (IST)

FOUR! Another boundary for Powell. Back-to-back boundaries and lucky, lucky stuff for him and West Indies. Takes the outside edge and beats Pant for a boundary on the opposite side now. WI 45/2

22:27 (IST)

FOUR! The extra pace by Navdeep Saini at 142kmph is good enough to help West Indies to another boundary. Powell goes for the slog but gets an inside edge which beats the stumps and no fielder to cut it off. WI 41/2

22:25 (IST)

After 7 overs,West Indies 36/2 ( Nicholas Pooran (W) 10 , Rovman Powell 19)

Another fairly expensive over for India. 11 runs from the Khaleel Ahmed over with a six and a four by Powell to keep West Indies going. The flow of runs has picked up and it doesn't help the Indian effort that the balls are there for the taking. Need to improve the line and length.

22:24 (IST)

Looks like Powell has been promoted up the order to go after the Indian bowlers. Positive move this one and so far so good for him.  

Sandipan Banerjee, freelance cricket writer
22:24 (IST)
22:23 (IST)

FOUR! Another overpitched delivery and Powell reaps more runs. This is easy pickings for him and Khaleel Ahmed is not making it difficult for the West Indies duo. Placed between cover and mid-off for a four. WI 36/2

22:22 (IST)

SIX! First maximum of the West Indies innings. Length ball by Khaleel Ahmed and cleanly hit by Powell down the ground for a six. Got to the pitch of the ball and went into the shot for a six. WI 32/2

22:20 (IST)

After 6 overs,West Indies 25/2 ( Nicholas Pooran (W) 9 , Rovman Powell 9)

Now another bowling change sees Navdeep Saini come into the attack. Not the best of starts by the newcomer into international cricket. Pooran and Powell smacking him for twin boundaries and nine runs from the over.

22:19 (IST)

FOUR! Banged in short by Saini but the direction is all wrong. Powell swivels and plays it behind square to collect another boundary. WI 25/2

22:16 (IST)

FOUR! Here is the newcomer Navdeep Saini into the attack and second ball, Nicholas Pooran jumps into the shot and tucks it away off the pads for a boundary. WI 20/2

22:14 (IST)

After 5 overs,West Indies 16/2 ( Nicholas Pooran (W) 4 , Rovman Powell 5)

First bowling change sees Khaleel Ahmed go for 7 runs. Rovman Powell off the mark with a powerful boundary in the over. West Indies need more of that to get some balance going. A chance on the last ball of the over to run out Pooran but the effort is not on the mark. Could have been interesting if it had hit.

22:13 (IST)

Not the ideal start for West Indies. Both openers are already back on the hut. On back to back days, Lewis failed to score a run and with Narine it is always a gamble, especially on a pitch like this. Nevertheless, here Windies do not have the luxury to take their time. They have to attack the new ball to keep their chances alive in this match.  

Sandipan Banerjee, freelance cricket writer
22:13 (IST)
22:12 (IST)

First bowling change from India and Khaleel Ahmed is the new bowler. Into the slot for Rovman Powell and he thunders it straight down the ground for a four. Nice way to get going. 

22:09 (IST)

After 4 overs,West Indies 9/2 ( Nicholas Pooran (W) 2 , Rovman Powell 0)

Nicholas Pooran and Rovman Powell in the middle now for West Indies. Pooran playing the ball down to long off to collect a single on the last ball of the over. Just the 1 run from Bhuvneshwar Kumar's second over. 

22:09 (IST)

Evin Lewis has now five single digit scores out of his last seven T20I innings.

Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

22:07 (IST)

After 3 overs,West Indies 8/2 ( Nicholas Pooran (W) 1 , )

Another one run over by Washington Sundar and he gets the wicket of a dangerous Sunil Narine for good measure. What a start this for India. West Indies are in trouble early on.

22:06 (IST)

BOWLED! Another early wicket for India and this time it is Sunil Narine. Tried to go into the attack to Washington but missed the slog completely. Poor shot in the end. WI 8/2

22:03 (IST)

After 2 overs,West Indies 7/1 ( Sunil Narine 4 , Nicholas Pooran (W) 1)

Six runs from Bhuvneshwar Kumar's first over but it is that early wicket of Evin Lewis which would help India. They have the early blow and West Indies have to start off all over again.

India vs West Indies, 2nd T20I at Florida, LIVE UpdatesIndia beat West Indies by 22 runs on DLS to seal the series. Rovman Powell ran them close with a quick-fire half century but a Krunal Pandya double dismissal brought things back in India's favour. It never really looked like West Indies were getting close with the required rate climbing all the time. The action now moves to Guyana for the third T20I but India have sealed the series already.

 

Preview: India will take on West Indies today in the second T20I of the ongoing series at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground,Lauderhill in Florida.

Virat Kohli and his men, who won the first match, will now aim to clinch the series with a victory in the second T20I of the three-match series before the series moves to Guyana. The series win will also help Indian to get over the World Cup pain in some ways.

In the first match that was held on Saturday at the same venue, Team India registered a four-wicket. Kohli won the toss and opted to field first considering the damp nature of the pitch. The captain's decision received a full backing from the bowlers as West Indies opened their innings on a horrible note.

Both the openers fell for a duck as India enjoyed the reckless approach to the batting by West Indies. Six Indian bowlers managed to take a wicket apiece with debutant Navdeep Saini leading the way with match figures of 4-1-17-3.

The 'hosts' needed a strong partnership to bail them out but that never came as they were restricted to 95/9 in 20 overs with Kieron Pollard top-scoring with 49. The only other player to reach double figures mark was Nicholas Pooran who scored 20.

In reply, India had their own mini collapse as they were reduced to 32/3 with Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabah Pant getting out for 1 and 0 respectively. However, small contributions from Virat Kohli (19), Manish Pandey (19), Krunal Pandya (12), Ravindra Jadea (10*) and Washington Sundar (8*) took India to win in 18th over.

Sheldon Cottrell, Sunil Narine and Keemo Paul each picked two wickets apiece.
