Virat Kohli

OUT! That is the end of the game! Shami picks the last wicket. He goes full and straight on middle, too good for the number 11. He looks to jam it out but fails to do so. The ball hits the pad. A huge shout follows, the umpire thinks and raises the finger. INDIA WIN BY 59 RUNS (DLS METHOD)!

35.5Jadeja to Brathwaite

OUT! Another one bites the dust! West Indies have fallen apart completely. Carlos Brathwaite walks back for another low score. The bowling change once again does the trick for the visitors. This is on middle, Brathwaite looks to go against the turn as he tries to heave. The ball though turns away and an outside edge is produced which goes straight to short third man.

34.5Kumar to Chase

OUT! That is an absolute stunner from Bhuvneshwar Kumar! This over is probably the game changing over. What a masterstroke by Kohli to get Bhuvneshwar Kumar on. Two wickets from this one. He bowls it on a length and around off, Chase looks to work it on the leg side but closes the face of the bat early. It goes off the leading edge to the left of the bowler who sticks his hand out and the ball sticks. Two extremely good catches, one by the skipper and the other by Kumar has changed the tide in India's favor.
