That's that from us today as well. Windies win and have made sure the series is alive. Mumbai hosts the third and last T20I. That will be now the decider. See you on 11 December then. For now, good bye and good night.

22:50 (IST)

Lendl Simmons, Man of the match for his unbeaten 67

Simmons: Like playing against India. They are a challenge. Glad to have got the opportunity again. It did not start as I wanted today. I am a bit old school. I take my time and then get going. I understand my role in this team. I knew Pooran and those guys will get boundaries later on, I tried to stay for long. 

22:48 (IST)

Kieron Pollard: These things happen (on 10th spot in ICC rankings). What we can control is what's in front of us. We came back well in the death overs to restrict them under 180. Some guys who've from the CPL and I'm very excited for them as this is their chance. Walsh bowled full four overs today, Kesrick was brilliant and I just hope that they go out there and enjoy themselves. 

The most I can do is pass my knowledge to the younger guys. It is what it is (on aggressive body language) and every time I get out there, I'm just looking to lead my team to victory. We are looking forward to that series decider in Mumbai. 

 

22:44 (IST)

Virat Kohli, India captain: You can say that. Numbers say a lot of things. You expect to get 45 runs in the last few overs. Dube's knock propelled us to 170. Windies bowled well and made sure we did not get momentum. We have been below par in the field in the last two matches. Two dropped chances in one over will cost you big. Fielding is something we need to be brave. We have to be at our best in Mumbai. We knew the pitch was going to do something, we thought why not send Shivam and see how it works and it worked pretty well. One of those catches that stuck in the hand. It came into my hand. It is about putting in the effort, sometime they stick, sometime they do not.

22:35 (IST)

So, the West Indies have shown the glimpses of their power-hitting skills tonight. On a pitch where the Indian batsmen found it difficult to time the ball, these Caribbean boys dismissed the bowling with disdain. The decision of not picking Kuldeep and Shami was a big tactical blunder and hope they will rectify this mistake in Mumbai. Also, they need a better effort in fielding and catching.

Nicholas Pooran: We tried not to panic. There was no big pressure. There is a bit of competition in the team. Everyone wants to do well. I work really hard and finally it is being paid off. Cricket is now all about having fun. Much better batting than being in a dug out.

FOUR! That's it! West Indies win. And win by eight wickets and 9 balls remaining. 

Short ball from Chahar and Pooran pulls it away for four runs to make it 1-1 in the three-match series. What a performance from the visitors. 

22:24 (IST)

After 18 overs,West Indies 168/2 ( Lendl Simmons 66 , Nicholas Pooran (W) 34)

Formalities left as Windies just a boundary away for a win. Bhuvneshwar leaks 14 off the last over, one boundary and a six hit. Very ordinary show from the pacers.

India vs West Indies, LIVE Cricket Score, 2nd T20I at Thiruvananthapuram Latest Updates: FOUR! That's it! West Indies win. And win by eight wickets and 9 balls remaining. 

India vs West Indies 2nd T20I Preview: T20 cricket is a fast-paced sporting contest and also a fast-moving competition. The first match between India and West Indies took place on Friday in Hyderabad and two days later we are now gearing up for the second match of the three-match series. The second T20I will take place in Thiruvananthapuram.

The hosts have a 1-0 lead in the series after beating West Indies by six wickets. India captain Virat Kohli was the star of match as he smashed 94 not out off 50 balls and that masterclass helped his side to chase down the 208-run target with eight balls to spare. Kohli hit six fours and another six sixes as his 35-ball half-century led India to 209-4 in 18.4 overs.

Another win on Sunday will mean an unassailable lead for India in the series. However, before thinking of the win, they will need to work a bit on their bowling. After all, it will not be easy to chase a 200+ target every day. So, don't be surprised if hosts decide to include spinner Kuldeep Yadav in place of Ravindra Jadeja. The advantage of sealing the series in the second match is that India then could try out the fringe players in the final match.

Along with the bowling, India also need to improve their fielding after they were guilty of dropping crucial catches in the first match.

For West Indies, it's a do-or-die fight as they will fight to stay alive in the series. And just like India, they also need to plug the holes in their leaky bowling.

Shimron Hetmyer scored a fifty while useful contributions from Evin Lewis and captain Kieron Pollard helped the visiting side cross 200-run mark but all the good work with the bat was undone by the poor bowling. Kesrick Williams went for 60 runs in 3.4 overs and that means changes could be made in that department.
