So that is it from this game! The series is all level heading into the decider and it is all to play for. The third T20I will be played in Mumbai at 1900 local (1330 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye!
MAN OF THE MATCH, Lendl Simmons, says he enjoys playing against India, it is good to be back in form at the international stage with a fifty. States his innings did not start how he wanted it to but the batters around him took the pressure off and in the end it worked well for him. Reckons his job is to go hard in the Powerplay but it did not come off, it though got easier to bat as the game progressed. Ends by saying it is easy to bat once you get in.
West Indies skipper, Kieron Pollard, credits the guys for the way they played, their bowlers did really well to restrict them to 170. Admits the over he bowled changed the momentum in India's favor but his bowlers did brilliantly to pull them back. Further adds the batters executed their plans brilliantly and took them over the line. States the youngsters are very talented, they have done really in the domestic league and have a very exciting future. Also says the team is a mixture of experienced guys and youngsters where the latter shows the way and the fomrer enjoys the game. Mentions he has always been aggressive, captaincy does not matter, his will to win is very strong and since he is leading the Windies, it is even stronger now. Ends by saying they though will need to improve and stop bowling extras and their batting could be a little more clinical.
Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, says you can probably say batting first is an issue but they were very good till the first 16 overs however, they could not finish well. States Dube's knocked took them in a good position but the Windies bowlers were very good, they assessed the conditions and executed their plans nicely. Admits their fielding was disappointing, the dropped catches cost them and it is an area they need to improve and be a lot brave in a do or die game in Mumbai. On demoting himself in the batting order he says they knew they would get the spinners in and they thought of sending Shivam in and hoped he could attack the spinners.
Nicholas Pooran says there wasn't a lot of pressure, they did not want to panic, just build partnerships and they knew they would get over the line. States they are just trying to get better as a team and they give their best in all the games. Mentions he has been working really hard and it seems to be working now. Ends by saying cricket for him is all about having fun and he loves playing the sport.
Earlier in the day, courtesy of Dube and Pant India put up a total which one felt would be enough on this ground. However, they could have scored a lot more but lost momentum towards the end of their innings. The Windies carried forward that momentum in the chase and efforts from their top order saw them get over the line. Now, one of Windies' stars of tonight, Nicholas Pooran is giving an interview.
India looked out of sorts tonight with the ball and in the field! Misfields, dropped catches and poor bowling eventually saw them finish second best. Only Sundar had figures to remember, he though got no support from the rest. Overall, it is a performance India would like to forget.
India though will rue the opportunities they let go! The two dropped catches in one over itself has cost them the game here. Both the openers laid the foundation for the chase by giving the ideal start before Lewis was dismissed. Simmons though continued with Hetmyer and both added yet another handy stand. However, it was the partnership between Pooran and Simmons which took them over the line. The former played an exceptional cameo and the latter was probably the best batter, the game-winner one can say for the Windies.
SO WE WILL HAVE A DECIDER! We saw a clinical chase by India in the first T20I and now West Indies return the favor. Never did they seem in trouble during the second innings and this is one win which should take their confidence to another level. The wicket was termed to not be easy, the target was deemed as one which is well above par but the Windies batters have done it quite easily.

NOT OUT! Pooran is well in! However, that is a very good effort in the deep by Iyer. A slower one on middle, Pooran looks to go downtown but only hits it high up in the air down the ground. Iyer from long on runs to his right and then dives but fails to get to it. Long off does the mopping up job and fires it to the keeper who whips the bails off and appeals. The umpire takes it upstairs replays show Pooran is safe. Two taken.
A run out appeal has been taken upstairs. India do not seem that excited.

Jadeja there is a few yards inside the ropes. It is going over him, he leaps with a hand stretched out but it goes over and bounces just inside. Good start to the over. Kumar under huge pressure now.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is back on!

Ravindra Jadeja To Shimron Hetmyer OUT!
OUT! It is clean as a whistle! That is an absolute blinder. Virat Kohli is an absolute inspiration. Delivers with the bat when his team needs him and now does so in the field. Take a bow skipper! This is flatter and on middle, Hetmyer hammers it flat towards the long on fence. Kohli runs to his right, stretches his hands out and then takes a tumbling catch. He does exceptionally well to not slide onto the ropes. He indicates out straightaway. However, the umpire takes it upstairs. Replays roll in and they show that the catch is a brilliant one. A huge wicket as Hetmyer was hitting the boundaries at will. The game once again hangs in the balance now.
Has Kohli taken a blinder? Well, he does indicate it is out but the umpire, to be sure has taken it upstairs. SOFT SIGNAL IS OUT!

Ravindra Jadeja To Shimron Hetmyer
SIX! Right on the ropes! This is even better than the last biggie! It is full and outside off, Hetmyer powers it over the cover fielder and it seems to have gone all the way. The umpire goes upstairs to check and it shows it is a maximum.

Washington Sundar To Evin Lewis OUT!
OUT! STUMPED! Sundar strikes in his last over of his spell. A much-needed wicket for India. End of an excellent opening stand. Credit to Washington. He has beautifully bowled that. He slows it up nicely, gives it a lot of loop. Lewis comes down the track and swings wildly. Is beaten because of the turn and Pant behind makes no mistake. They go upstairs to check whether Pant has taken it behind the stumps and he has done so. The crowd finally finds its voice back. However, why did Lewis play that shot? He has been struggling against Sundar and it was the second last ball of the offie's spell, he could have probably played it out but he had different ideas. India will hope to pull things back into their half now. 98 needed in 61.

NOT OUT! The impact is outside off and India indeed lose a review. It never looked out to be honest. Not sure what that was taken. Shorter and around off, it turns away and also stays low. Lewis gets his back leg out of the line of off and then tries to pull but misses to get hit on the pads. An appeal but it is turned down. Kohli after a chat with his bowler reviews and replays show that the on-field calls stays.
Review time! An appeal for an LBW has been turned down and Kohli reviews. It seems like India will be losing a review here.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar To Evin Lewis
EDGED AND DROPPED! This is a little tough but Pant who is wearing the gloves, should hang on. Kumar has been very unlucky till now. He could have had both the openers in the space of 3 balls. Lewis makes room and Kumar bowls it closer to his body. Lewis looks to cut but there is no room on offer. It goes off the outside edge towards Pant. He is moving initially to his right but then dives to his left, gets two hands to it but spills it. This can prove very costly.

DROPPED! Sundar is the culprit! Never easy these skiers but you expect them to be taken at this stage. The knuckle ball from Kumar. It is on middle, Simmons is way too early in his shot. He only hits it high up in the air towards mid off where Sundar drops it. A single taken. Simmons, who is short of runs, needed such luck. Will this change his fortunes? Can he make India pay?

Kumar angles this one into the batter, Simmons is cramped for room. He swings but misses to get hit near the box.
Change of ends for Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. 1-04-0 so far.

A huge shout but only by the keeper! This fired on the stumps, Lewis looks to flick but the ball straightens. It hits the leading edge and then hits the pads. Pant appeals but he is the only one doing so.

In the air... it lands in no man's land! Shorter and around off, Lewis looks to hammer it down the ground but does not time it well. Mid off runs after it and saves two for his side.

FOUR! Up and over! Powered over the fielder! Shorter in length and just outside off, Lewis pulls it over the mid-wicket fence and bags a boundary. Good start to this over.

Uppish but well short! On a length and around off, Lewis pushes at it with hard hands towards cover.
Sanjay Manjrekar on the ground. He says that there is bit of dew coming in but not enough to trouble the fielders out there.

FOUR! Top edge and a boundary! Spoils what was a gem of an over till then, still a good one though. The last ball is slightly short around leg. Lewis looks to hit it through the leg side but due to the movement away, it goes off the top edge and down to the third man fence.
The batter pulls out now! Deepak Chahar once again halts in his bowling run up. This time Lewis pulls out at the last moment.

Simmons straightaway gives him the charge maybe to negotiate the swing. Chahar still bowls an awayswinger fuller and on middle, Simmons pushes it to mid off.
A false start as Deepak Chahar pulls out just as he was about to jump.
Welcome back for the second innings. The Indian team is in a huddle and skipper Kohli has few words for his players before they disperse onto the field. Lendl Simmons and Evin Lewis come in to bat for the Windies. Deepak Chahar to start with the ball for the hosts. The chase is on...
