India beat West Indies by 6 wickets

03.42 IST: Carlos Brathwaite to Virat Kohli, FOUR! Kohli finishes it off in style! A freebie by Brathwaite, it is on the pads, Kohli flicks it fine on the leg side and a boundary results. INDIA WIN BY 6 WICKETS (DLS METHOD)!

03.40 IST: Carlos Brathwaite to Virat Kohli, FOUR! Three needed now! Shorter and on middle, Kohli pulls it through mid-wicket and the ball races away to the fence.

Carlos Brathwaite is back into the attack.

03.35 IST: Jason Holder to Virat Kohli, FOUR! Class, pure class! No need to run for those. Welcomes his opposite number with a boundary. Holder goes full and around off, Kohli creams it through covers and the ball races away to the fence.

03.32 IST: Kemar Roach to Kedar Jadhav, FOUR! Jadhav is playing a gem here. He is on 14 from 8 balls. Nice touch this. It is short and outside off, Kedar waits for it, uses the pace of the bowler and guides it past point for a boundary. 14 from the over, probably the one which kills the game completely. 18 needed in 24.

03.30 IST: Kemar Roach to Virat Kohli, 100 for Virat Kohli. Century no. 43 and two in two games in this series. Once again, the master of run chases rises to the occasion. A true leader, a brilliant batter. 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.

03.26 IST: Roston Chase to Kedar Jadhav, SIX! Well, if that single would have been stopped, this six might not have been hit. Kedar comes on strike, dances down the track and hits it with the turn over the mid-wicket fence for a biggie.

03.20 IST: Kemar Roach to Shreyas Iyer, OUT! Iyer has thrown it away in the attempt to end it early! He though has done his job. End of a brilliant innings by the young man. Came in at a tough time but has taken India to the brink of victory along with his captain.

03.18 IST: Roston Chase to Shreyas Iyer, SIX! Iyer wants to end this early! That made a cracking sound of the bat. Floats it up on middle, Iyer brings the slog sweep out and it goes over the mid-wicket fence.

03.06 IST: Keemo Paul to Shreyas Iyer, Fifty for Iyer! He gets there in style. What an innings this is. Talk about a knock full of character. Talk about grabbing the opportunity with both hands. He came in when India were in trouble and has rose to the occasion. Lovely. His 4th in ODIs and consecutive ones. He would love to stay there till the end though. He gets there by guiding this short ball outside off through backward point. He just used the pace of the bowler there.

03.04 IST: Carlos Brathwaite to Virat Kohli, FOUR! In the gap and a boundary! And once again we see the last ball spoils the over. Brathwaite bangs it short. Kohli pulls, it is not controlled but in the gap in the square leg region and it races away.

02.58 IST: Carlos Brathwaite to Shreyas Iyer, SIX! Shot of the game for me so far! That is beautiful, just beautiful. On the fuller side and around off, Iyer stretches his arms and lofts it over the long on fence. 12 from the over. 82 needed in 72. Run rate below 7 needed now.

02.53 IST: Carlos Brathwaite to Virat Kohli, Almost plays it on! Shorter and slower on off, Kohli is early in the pull, he gets an inside edge which goes close past the leg pole and to the keeper.

02.50 IST: Jason Holder to Virat Kohli, FOUR! Deft now! This is top class batting! Slightly short and outside off, Kohli guides it past backward point. Allen in the deep runs to his left, dives and tries to push it back in but he seems to have made contact with the ropes as he tries to do so. The umpire checks upstairs and replays show that he has. Boundary signaled. FA is in some pain though.

02.49 IST: Jason Holder to Virat Kohli, FOUR! That is some shot, some shot. Outrageous. Genius is the right word. Kohli makes room and Holder bowls it full on the middle. He still manages to loft it over covers for a boundary.

02.45 IST: Carlos Brathwaite to Shreyas Iyer, FOUR! Misfield and a boundary! That was smashed, yes, but should have been stopped. Holder is the culprit. Fuller and on off, Iyer hits it hard towards cover. Holder lets it through and the ball races away. The last ball spoils the over. 7 from the over. 106 needed in 84. India on top now.

02.40 IST: Roston Chase to Shreyas Iyer, SIX! Three sixes for Iyer in the last 4 balls he has faced. This time Roston chase is at the receiving end. It is on the pads, Iyer brings the slog sweep out. Connects well and it goes over the square leg fence.

02.38 IST: Fabian Allen to Shreyas Iyer, SIX! What a shot by Iyer! He is looking to get a move on here. Short of a length ball on off, Iyer goes on the back foor and heaves it over mid-wicket for a biggie. 122 in 96 needed.

02.36 IST: Fabian Allen to Shreyas Iyer, SIX! Iyer has picked the bones out of that one! What a shot. Excellent use of the feet, gets to the pitch of the ball and tonks it over the long off fence for a huge one.

02.34 IST: Roston Chase to Virat Kohli, Fuller and on off, Kohli eases it to long on for one. Fifty for Kohli. He continues his good form vs West Indies. Once again the skipper is leading from the front. Needs to keep going though.

02.33 IST: Roston Chase to Virat Kohli, FOUR! Poor ball and put away. A rare one by Chase. Short and outside off, Kohli goes back and punches it through covers. Lewis in the deep runs to his right, dives but fails to stop it.

02.30 IST: Fabian Allen to Shreyas Iyer, Two to end a good over for India! Shorter and outside off, Iyer goes back and cuts it uppishly but wide of point for two. India 111/3 in 17 overs 

02.25 IST: Fabian Allen to Shreyas Iyer, FOUR! Releases some pressure which was building! This is slightly shorter and outside off, Iyer plays it very late and gets it past point for a boundary.

02.21 IST: Fabian Allen to Shreyas Iyer, Just the single! Shorter and outside off, Pant goes back and slaps it through covers for one.

02.19 IST: Roston Chase to Virat Kohli, A dot to end as Kohli works it with the turn to the man at mid-wicket.

02.16 IST: Fabian Allen to Rishabh Pant, 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.

* Rishabh Pant is the new man in for the Men In Blue.

02.15 IST: Fabian Allen to Shikhar Dhawan, 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. Paul initially backtracks but then turns and runs backwards, takes a nice catch. A threatening stand comes to an end. West Indies back in the game. 164 needed in 136.

02.00 IST: Keemo Paul to Shikhar Dhawan, FOUR! Up and over! Fuller and on off, Dhawan waits for the slower one to come to him and then he lofts it over mid off for a boundary. 173 needed in 151.

01.59 IST: Fabian Allen to Virat Kohli, FOUR! Spoils the over completely. A poor ball this, short and outside off, Kohli goes back and cuts it through point. No chance for the fielder in the deep.

01.53 IST: Keemo Paul to Shikhar Dhawan, FOUR! Edgy boundary! Now everything is going India's way. This is short and outside off, Dhawan throws the kitchen sink at it. It goes off the outside edge and over the keeper's hand for a boundary.

01.49 IST: Kemar Roach to Virat Kohli, FOUR! Up and over! His one hand did come off of the handle but he was in full control. This is on a length and around off, Kohli lofts it over the mid off fielder for a boundary. 50 up for India and it has come up in quick time.

01.44 IST: Kemar Roach to Virat Kohli, A misfield and a run! This is shorter and on off, Kohli pushes it towards cover. The fielder fumbles and a run is taken. 

01.36 IST: Jason Holder to Virat Kohli, FOUR! Innovation at its best. Short ball on the off side, Kohli bends his back and just upper cuts it over the slip fielder for a boundary.

01.34 IST: Kemar Roach to Virat Kohli, A dot to end a successful over for West Indies. This is shorter and on off, Kohli stands tall and keeps it out.

01.32 IST: Kemar Roach to Shikhar Dhawan, OUT! He indeed is! A much-needed breakthrough for West Indies and it has come in the form of a run out. The last thing India wanted and it is the last way Rohit would have wanted to get out. 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.

01.30 IST: Kemar Roach to Shikhar Dhawan, FOUR! Another excellent shot this! Dhawan actually set himself up to go over the leg side as he shuffles right across. Roach bowls it short and wide outside off. Dhawan adjusts and slaps it through covers for a boundary.

01.26 IST: Jason Holder to Shikhar Dhawan, FOUR! Raining boundaries here from the Indian batters this time. To the right of mid off now. This is fuller and around off, Dhawan strokes it through wide mid off and the ball races away.

01.25 IST: Jason Holder to Shikhar Dhawan, FOUR! Need not run for those. Straight as an arrow. This is a top shot. Not a lot wrong with the delivery. It is on a length and on middle, Dhawan pushes it through mid off and bags a boundary. Third already for India.

01.21 IST: Kemar Roach to Rohit Sharma, FOUR! Back-to-back boundaries! This one a touch edgy but Rohit won't care. This is outside off, Rohit looks to guide it down to third man but it goes off the outside edge, past the slip fielder and into the third man fence.

01.19 IST: Kemar Roach to Rohit Sharma, FOUR! What a start to the innings for India. What a shot to begin with. This is slightly short and outside off, Rohit needs no sighters. He lifts one leg up and pulls it through mid-wicket for a boundary.

* We are back for the chase! The Indian openers, Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma are out in the middle. Kemar Roach to open the proceedings for the West Indies. Here we go...

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.

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.

01.11 IST: Khaleel Ahmed to Fabian Allen, 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!

01.05 IST: Khaleel Ahmed to Carlos Brathwaite, OUT c Rishabh Pant b Khaleel Ahmed. West Indies have lost their seventh wicket.

01.04 IST: Khaleel Ahmed to Carlos Brathwaite, 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.

01.00 IST: Mohammed Shami to Fabian Allen, 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.

00.58 IST: Mohammed Shami to Carlos Brathwaite, A full toss, Brathwaite does not take full toll of it as he hits it down to long off for one.

00.56 IST: Khaleel Ahmed to Jason Holder, 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.

00.50 IST: Ravindra Jadeja to Carlos Brathwaite, 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.

Carlos Brathwaite walks out to the middle to partner his skipper.

00.44 IST: Mohammed Shami to Nicholas Pooran, OUT c sub b Mohammed Shami. West Indies have lost their fifth wicket.

00.42 IST: Ravindra Jadeja to Nicholas Pooran, 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.

00.40 IST: Ravindra Jadeja to Nicholas Pooran, 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.

00.37 IST: Yuzvendra Chahal to Nicholas Pooran, 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.

00.33 IST: Ravindra Jadeja to Nicholas Pooran, 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.

00.30 IST: Khaleel Ahmed to Nicholas Pooran, 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.

00.28 IST: Khaleel Ahmed to Jason Holder, 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.

00.24 IST: Ravindra Jadeja to Jason Holder, Just a single and a wicket from the over! Top class. This is on off, Holder pushes it through covers for one.

Jason Holder is the new man in for the West Indies.

00.23 IST: Ravindra Jadeja to Shai Hope, OUT! BOWLED 'EM! This is top class stuff from the India 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.

00.20 IST: Mohammed Shami to Shimron Hetmyer, 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.

00.13 IST: Ravindra Jadeja to Shai Hope, 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 drag his feet out but did manage to get it back in time.

00.10 IST: Mohammed Shami to Shai Hope, A dot to end the first over after the break! A yorker on middle, Hope jams it out to point.

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 1425 local (1825) - Even better news now! Game to start at 1435 local, it is a 35-over per side game so West Indies still have 13 more overs to play.

Update 1400 local (1800 GMT) - Nothing new to update, it continues to rain, not that heavy though.

Update 1310 local (1710 GMT) - The happiness the last update gave did not last for long as it has started to rain again. The covers are back on and the wait continues.

Update 1235 local (1635 GMT) - Well, we do have better news for you. The rain has stopped and the groundsmen are out doing their job. However, we have started to lose overs now. Also, it is still quite dark out there so the showers could be around the corner. All we can do now is, wait!

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.

The rain is back and the players make their way out. The covers are brought on again.

20.57 IST: Kedar Jadhav to Shai Hope, FOUR! A welcome boundary! One after quite some time. A poor delivery this, short and outside off, Hope has enough time to go back and slap it through covers.

20.52 IST: Kedar Jadhav to Shimron Hetmyer, Slightly shorter on middle, this is hit down to long on for one.

20.50 IST: Kedar Jadhav to Shai Hope, Good footwork by the bowler! This is on middle, Hope pushes it to the right of the bowler who sticks his leg out and kicks it straight to mid-wicket. Saves a run.

20.42 IST: Yuzvendra Chahal to Shimron Hetmyer, In the air but just wide! This is on the pads, Hetmyer works it uppishly but wide of leg gully and down to fine leg for one.

20.40 IST: Kedar Jadhav to Shai Hope, A misfield and a run! This is on middle, Hope pushes it back to the bowler who does not collect it cleanly. It goes towards long off for one.

20.37 IST: Yuzvendra Chahal to Shimron Hetmyer, FOUR! Too straight and Hetmyer nudges it fine. Chahal bowls it on the pads, Hetmyer flicks it towards fine leg. No fielder there and a boundary results.

20.32 IST: Khaleel Ahmed to Shai Hope, Back of a length on off, Hope stands tall and guides it to point.

20.27 IST: Yuzvendra Chahal to Shai Hope, Flatter and on the pads, Hope looks to flick but misses to get hit on the pads.

DRINKS! Shimron Hetmyer is the new man in for the Windies.

20.21 IST: Khaleel Ahmed to Chris Gayle, OUT! CAUGHT! Gayle's innings comes to an end. 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. Such a nice gesture from the Indian side, also speaks a lot about Gayle and his legacy.

Shai Hope is the new man in for West Indies.

20.16 IST: Yuzvendra Chahal to Evin Lewis, 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 a relief here. Lewis continues to play the attacking mode. he goes for the slog sweep but picks the wrong ball. It is the googly, look 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 inning by Lewis and a wonderful partnership. India though now have a chance to pull things back a little.

20.10 IST: Khaleel Ahmed to Chris Gayle, 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.

20.07 IST: Khaleel Ahmed to Chris Gayle, 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. West Indies 113/0 in 9.3 overs

20.06 IST: Khaleel Ahmed to Chris Gayle, 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.

20.05 IST: Khaleel Ahmed to Chris Gayle, 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. West Indies 103/0 in 9.1 overs

20.02 IST: Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Evin Lewis, FOUR! 18 from this over! The run rae 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.

20.00 IST: Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Chris Gayle, SIX! A fielder at the fence, Gayle does not care! He hammers this length ball over the long on fence. Chahal was there but he hit it well wide.

19.57 IST: Khaleel Ahmed to Evin Lewis, FOUR! Too easy for the West Indian openers at the moment! This is fuller and on middle, once again it is right in the zone of Lewis. He whips it over the mid-wicket fielder and a boundary results.

19.56 IST: Khaleel Ahmed to Evin Lewis, FOUR! 10 from the first two balls! Shorter and outside off, Lewis drags his pull, gets it through mid-wicket and bags another boundary.

19.54 IST: Khaleel Ahmed to Evin Lewis, SIX! The bowling change does not make a difference here. The ball is still being hit out of the park. This is on the pads, Lewis whips it with the angle and over the square leg fence.

19.52 IST: Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Evin Lewis, 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.

19.49 IST: Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Chris Gayle, 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 desired one. This is full and outside off, Gayle drags it through mid on and bags a boundary.

19.45 IST: Mohammed Shami to Chris Gayle, FOUR! Make that 16 now! This time Gayle was ready for the short one, he goes back and pulls it over mid-wicket and bags another boundary. Raining boundaries at the moment.

19.44 IST: Mohammed Shami to Chris Gayle, 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.

 

19.43 IST: Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Evin Lewis, 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.

19.40 IST: Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Evin Lewis, FOUR! Back-to-back boundaries! This was not right off the middle but hit it nicely. 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.

19.40 IST: Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Evin Lewis, FOUR! Fortunate one! Shorter and just outside off, Lewis looks to cut but it is too close to play that shot. He gets an inside edge which goes really close past the off pole and down to the fine leg fence.

19.36 IST: Mohammed Shami bowls a maiden.

19.27 IST: Mohammed Shami to Chris Gayle, FOUR! Up and over, not timed that well but good enough to fetch a boundary. 10 from the over, an expensive start from Shami. This is angled into the batter. Gayle flicks it with the angle over mid-wicket and the ball races away.

19.24 IST: The players are back on the ground. The sun is shining and the grey clouds have disappeared. 

19.08 IST: Rain! There's a drizzle in Port of Spain and the play has been suspended. 

19.06 IST: Mohammed Shami to Chris Gayle, SIX! Well, no surprises there. Gayle takes full toll of it. He is off the mark with a biggie. Shami bowls a length ball around middle, Gayle was waiting for it. He clears the left leg and lofts it over the long on fence for a biggie.

19.05 IST: Mohammed Shami to Chris Gayle, no ball! First free-hit of the game!
