19.1Brathwaite to Pant

6
SIX! Dismissive! What a way to finish the chase! Brathwaite delivers it full and on middle, Pant gives it the full whack of his bat and launches it over the bowler's head for a maximum. Handshakes on the field, India win by 7 wickets and have clean swept the 3-match T20I series.

18.6Cottrell to Pandey

Speedy delivery, very full and wide outside off, Pandey attempts to dig it out but misses. 3 needed more from the last over.

18.5Cottrell to Pandey

0
A touch short and around leg at 133 kph, Pandey tries to pull but misses and is hit on the hand. It rolls on the leg side, Manish looks for a run but is sent back.

18.4Cottrell to Pant

1
Lands it on a length and outside off, Pant stays leg side of this delivery, reaches out and hammers it past the bowler to long off for a run.

Very full and on middle, Pant pushes it out towards mid-wicket and takes a quick run. Another 6 for a clean sweep for India!

17.5Thomas to Pant

6
SIX! This is typical Rishabh Pant. Another 7 needed now. A low full toss on the pads, Pant picks it up and slogs it over square leg for a biggie. Effortless.

17.4Thomas to Pandey

1
Too full and on off, Pandey drives it down towards mid off for a run.

17.3Thomas to Kohli

W
OUT! Against the run of play, West Indies have a wicket. Kohli won't be there to finish things off. A very full ball outside off, Virat reaches out for it and squeezes it out behind square on the off side. It's aerial and Lewis stretches across to his left to complete the with both hands. No real celebration from anyone, understandably so. 14 needed off 15 balls.

17.2Thomas to Kohli

4
FOUR! Bang! Plenty of bottom hand on this pull shot. Short ball by Thomas this time, Kohli rides the bounce and pummels it to the deep mid-wicket fence.

17.1Thomas to Kohli

0
What happened there? Whoa! The ball has touched the stumps but the bails refuse to leave its groove. A cracking yorker by Thomas first up, Kohli digs it out from the bottom half of his blade and the ball rolls behind. It kisses the sticks but Kohli is lucky that the bails don't come off.

16.6Cottrell to Pant

4
FOUR! Shots like these make him a special batsman. Fifty up for Rishabh Pant, his 2nd in T20Is! Cottrell sprays a length ball down the leg side, Pant picks it off his pads, brings his wrists into play and powers it behind square leg. A boundary to reach his fifty, well played young man. 100-run stand comes up too. 18 needed off 18 balls.

16.5Cottrell to Pant

0
This time it's a pacey delivery. Short and on off at 142 kph, Pant is hurried into his pull shot and mistimes it towards mid-wicket.

16.4Cottrell to Kohli

1
Slower one, on a length outside off at 111 kph, Kohli drags it from out there off the inner half and sends it to deep mid-wicket for a run.

16.3Cottrell to Pant

1
Too full in length on off, Pant goes hard at it this time and helps it through square leg for a single.

16.2Cottrell to Pant

2
A near yorker on middle, at 133 kph, Pant gently digs it out towards mid-wicket and scampers back for the second run. Soft hands and quick feet, well done!

16.1Cottrell to Kohli

1
Back of a length ball on middle, Kohli stands back and pulls it in front of square leg for a run.

15.6Narine to Pant

4
FOUR! Well played! Tossed up ball landing full on middle, Pant brings out the reverse sweep and nails it through the gap between backward point and short third man. 11 from the over, 27 needed more. Narine is done for the evening, 4-0-29-0!

15.5Narine to Kohli

1
Loopy and full on middle, Kohli knocks it down to long on and rotates the strike.

15.4Narine to Kohli

0
Shortish and on off, turning back in a bit, Kohli punches but finds the extra cover fielder.

15.3Narine to Pant

1
Skidding away from the left-hander, on the shorter side, Pant hits it from the back foot to sweeper cover for a run.

15.2Narine to Kohli

1
Advances down the track and then helps it off his pads through backward square leg for one.

15.1Narine to Kohli

4
FOUR! Stroked with excellent timing! Fifty comes up for Kohli, his 21st in T20Is. Look at the determination and focus on his face. As soon as Narine drags his length short on middle, Kohli goes back and powers it through mid-wicket. It races away and beats the valiant dive from Hetmyer in the deep.

14.6Paul to Pant

6
SIX! Pant is reminding everyone of Raina with his big shots over extra cover. He picks the line early, it's outside off on a length and Rishabh goes inside-out. Rifles his shot all the way for a biggie. 14 from the over, India are marching towards the target, 38 needed more off 30 balls.

14.5Paul to Kohli

1
Width on offer outside off, Kohli reaches out for it and slaps it through point for one.

14.4Paul to Kohli

4
FOUR! Shot! Too full in length just outside off, Kohli takes a half stride forward and smashes it across the line through mid-wicket for a crackling boundary.

14.3Paul to Pant

1
A mistimed shot! Paul runs in from 'round the wicket and serves a slower delivery. The length is on the shorter side and Pant is early into his heave shot. Mistimes it down to long on and luckily for him, it doesn't carry to the deep fielder.

14.2Paul to Kohli

1
Classy shot! Fullish ball on off, Virat steps down the track and drives it back past the bowler to long off for a run.

14.1Paul to Pant

1
Fuller and straighter on middle, Pant whips it across the line to deep mid-wicket for a run.

13.6Brathwaite to Kohli

4
FOUR! That nearly went all the way. Sublime this time from the Indian skipper. He gets width outside off, decides to go aerial again and hammers it over extra cover. The onfield umpire gets it checked upstairs before signalling a boundary. Touch and go, that. 10 coming off this over, 52 needed more in the remaining 6 overs.

13.5Brathwaite to Kohli

2
AERIAL! BUT SAFE! Kohli gets away with a poor shot here. A length ball around off, Kohli takes a big stride forward and tries to heave it over the leg side. But it takes the upper half of his bat and flies in the air towards mid on. The deep fielder charges but the ball falls safely. They manage to come back for the second.

13.4Brathwaite to Kohli

0
Beaten all ends up! Slower one, on a length and outside off, Kohli jumps out of the crease and is very early into his shot. Misses the ball completely.

13.3Brathwaite to Pant

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

13.2Brathwaite to Kohli

1
Pitches it up and outside off, Kohli drives it square of the wicket on the off side for a run.

13.1Brathwaite to Kohli

2
Serves a length ball outside off, Virat pushes it with an angled back through extra cover for two.

12.6Paul to Pant

0
Too full in length on middle, Pant drives it straight back towards the bowler who does well to deflect it towards mid-wicket off his right boot. Saves a few runs there. 9 from the over, 62 needed more off 42 balls.

12.5Paul to Pant

6
SIX! Thumped! Pant is on the attack. Paul delivers an off-pace delivery, fullish and outside off, Rishabh picks it early and lifts it over extra cover. Brilliantly timed and it has gone all the way over the rope.

12.4Paul to Kohli

1
Lands it on a length outside off, Kohli swings his bat across the line and ends up dragging it off the inner half. The ball goes over mid-wicket but doesn't carry to the fielder in the deep. The batsmen have run through for a single.

12.3Paul to Pant

1
Short in length around off, Pant steps down and powers his pull shot across the line. Not timed perfectly and it goes through mid on for a run.

12.2Paul to Pant

0
Terrific delivery, a yorker outside off, Pant tries to dig it out but is beaten for pace.

12.1Paul to Kohli

1
50-run stand comes off 45 balls! A length ball angling down the leg side, Kohli walks forward and across before flicking it over mid-wicket for a run.

11.6Narine to Pant

0
Flatter and on off, Pant winds up for a big shot but then pushes it softly towards covers. Dot ball to end a 5-run over!

11.5Narine to Kohli

1
In the air... SAFE! Kohli is very lucky there. He jumps out of the crease to flick a delivery on his pads but closes the face of the bat early. It loops off the leading edge but goes safely down the ground towards long off for a run. Could have easily chipped it back to the bowler on another day.
