Hangs back and punches it to extra cover. It spins past Saini inside the ring and the batsmen take two.

15.2Pandya to Hetmyer

1
Shortish and on off, it's chipped over covers for one.

15.1Pandya to Hetmyer

0
Play and a miss! Shortish and wide outside off, Hetmyer tries to cut but misses.

14.6Jadeja to Pollard

0
Flatter on middle, helped to mid-wicket. Dot to end the over.

14.5Jadeja to Hetmyer

1
DROPPED BY KOHLI! A long hop on middle, Hetmyer pulls it in the air at mid-wicket and Kohli dives to his left inside the ring. He gets it in his grasp but fails to hang on. A single is taken. Will this cost India?

14.4Jadeja to Pollard

1
Aerial but safe! This one stops a bit onto the batsman after landing around off, Pollard is early into the shot and ends up pushing it back uppishly. Jadeja dives across to his left but it goes under his left hand and the batsmen take a run.

14.3Jadeja to Pollard

0
Nearly a drag on! Flatter delivery, short and on off, Pollard tries whipping across the line but gets a bottom edge. It goes on one bounce to the keeper.

14.2Jadeja to Pollard

4
FOUR! Powered away! Flatter one, on middle, Pollard lines up the delivery and hammers it over the bowler's head for a boundary at long on.

14.1Jadeja to Pollard

0
Quicker one, short and on off, Pollard punches it back to the off side and Jadeja runs to make the stop.

13.7Pandya to Hetmyer

4
FOUR! Slapped away! Short in length and wide outside off, enough room there for Hetmyer to whack it through backward point for a boundary. Outstanding over by Krunal, 6 runs and 2 wickets from it.

13.6Pandya to Powell

W
OUT! That's hitting the stumps and Krunal Pandya has turned this chase completely in India's favour. Both the set batsmen are back in the hut leaving West Indies in a precarious situation. Pandya dishes out an arm ball on middle and it skids on to ping Powell on the front pad as he fails to play it out. They appeal and the finger has gone up. Rovman takes the referral but it's of no use. The Hawk Eye shows that it has hit him in line and is going on to destroy the stumps.

13.5Pandya to Pollard

1
Pollard has played it towards mid-wicket. They pick up a single.

13.4Pandya to Pollard

0
Flatter and on off, defended from the back foot.

13.3Pandya to Pooran

W
OUT! Excellent catch by Manish Pandey, lovely piece of athleticism by him. Pandya delivers it flat and a touch short around off, Pooran fetches it from there and tries to pump it over long on. But he gets more height than distance on his shot. Pandey settles himself near the rope to catch the ball and then tosses it up as he crosses the fence. He then returns to catch it again. An uncharacteristic knock by Nicholas is over, bringing an end to a 76-run stand. 84 needed more off 40 balls.

13.2Pandya to Pooran

0
Slower one, skidding down, Pooran tries to play the reverse sweep but misses. It hits him on the body.

13.1Pandya to Pooran

WD
Wide! Krunal sees the movement from the batsman and bowls it wide outside off. But it's way wide outside off and called a wide.

12.7Saini to Powell

0
A slower one on the last ball and it deceives the batsman. Rovman is very early into his shot and misses. 85 needed off 42 balls.

12.6Saini to Powell

0
Superb delivery. Nothing from the Free Hit! Saini spears in a full ball around leg, Powell stays back to hammer it across the line but misses. It goes right through his legs to the keeper.

12.5Saini to Powell

1
FOUR! Bang! Saini delivers it on a length around off, Powell throws all his power behind this shot and thwacks it past the mid off fielder for a boundary. That's not all, it has been given as a no ball because there were only three fielders inside the circle.

12.4Saini to Pooran

1
Short in length and on middle, Pooran pulls it down to deep mid-wicket for a run.

12.3Saini to Pooran

0
Swing and a miss! Width on offer outside off, Pooran tries smashing it over the off side but misses.

12.2Saini to Powell

1
Second T20I fifty for Rovman Powell and it has come in good time! A slower delivery, shortish and on off, Powell works it with gentle hands through mid-wicket and runs the first run hard. But that's all he will get. A fine knock by him so far. 91 needed more for West Indies!

12.1Saini to Pooran

1
Driven towards the mid off region. The batsmen have run through for a single.

11.7Pandya to Powell

SIX! This one has gone all the way to spoil a good over. Slightly short and on off, Powell picks it early, goes back deep inside the crease and muscles it over mid-wicket.

11.6Pandya to Powell

0
Fires it in outside off, Powell digs it out towards backward point. Dot.

11.5Pandya to Powell

0
Darts in a yorker on off, Rovman digs it out back to the bowler.

11.4Pandya to Pooran

1
Short and wide outside off, Pooran slaps it through the line and Kohli chases it from the circle before putting in a dive to make the half stop. Only one taken. Brilliantly done by the Indian skipper, leading from the front.

11.3Pandya to Powell

1
Quicker and on middle, Rovman works it through mid-wicket and Krunal himself runs after it. Only a run.

11.2Pandya to Powell

0
Played to the point region by the batsman. No run.

11.1Pandya to Powell

WD
Wide! Well, that's a bit harsh. A full toss outside off, just inside the tramline, the batsman leaves and Pant catches it on the full. Rishabh is not happy with the call from the umpire, rightly so.

10.7Ahmed to Powell

1
Fullish and close to off, Powell plays it near his front pad and pushes it towards extra cover for one. Good last two overs for India.

10.6Ahmed to Pooran

1
Angling into the batsman, Pooran closes the face of his bat and helps it towards wide mid on for one.

10.5Ahmed to Pooran

0
Slower again, on a length around off, Pooran winds up for a big shot but gets an inside edge onto the pads.

10.4Ahmed to Powell

1
Uppish but just out of the reach of the fielder! Back of a length ball on off, a slower one, Powell camps back to power it over mid-wicket but it takes the outer half of his bat and flies towards extra cover. Kohli moves swiftly across to his left, puts in a dive but it lands just short of his outstretched hands. A single taken.

10.3Ahmed to Powell

WD
Wide! Back of a length ball down the leg side, Powell tries to glance but misses.

10.2Ahmed to Powell

8.6Sundar to Pooran

2
Well stopped, Krunal! Quicker one, flat and on the pads, Pooran whips it behind square leg. It races away and Krunal does well in the deep to stop it with a full length dive. Saves two for his team. 11, 10, 11 - Runs coming from the last three overs.

8.5Sundar to Powell

1
Aerial but safe! Floated full ball around off, Powell advances down the track for a big shot but fails to middle his shot. It takes the outer half and flies over point for a run.
