Match Ended   
184/5 (20.0/20)
167/9 (20.0/20)
India beat West Indies by 17 runs
Right then! That is all we have from this match and this also concludes West Indies tour of India. The hosts won both the ODI and T20I series 3-0 but the cricketing action doesn't stop here. India now turn their focus to Sri Lanka, who tour India next. The sides meet in a three-match T20I series first, starting on the 24th of February. The first T20I begins at 7 pm IST (1.30 pm GMT) but the build-up to the game will begin a lot sooner. Do join us then. Take care and goodbye!
Rohit Sharma now lifts the winning trophy and the Indian team is seen rejoicing and posing for a team photo with the trophy!
Rohit Sharma, the Indian captain says that as a team whether they chase or they defend it does not matter, they wanted to tick all the boxes, and he is happy with the series and they got pretty much everything they wanted. Mentions that they do understand they are good while chasing, but most of the guys are missing from the team, and they have a young team. States that the biggest takeaway from the ODI series, was the guys who got an opportunity and made it count, and also the bowlers did well in both the series. Informs that there are a few guys missing from the team for the next tour, but there are other players who will get game time as well, and they have to keep one eye on the T20 World Cup also. He concludes by saying that Sri Lanka will be a different challenge, but they are not looking at any opposition they just want to concentrate on how they can play as a team and improve in different areas. Fielding is one area, they would like to improve upon.
Suryakumar Yadav is named as the PLAYER OF THE MATCH AND ALSO THE PLAYER OF THE SERIES! Suryakumar Yadav says that tonight he wanted to replicate what he did in the first game and it was very important for him to stay at the crease after Rohit got dismissed. Says that tonight was a perfect opportunity for him and is glad that everything worked out well. He adds that he is trying to keep things simple and try to do the same thing over and over again, be it on the pitch or in the nets. He says that one needs to just have a few quality net sessions and just believe in themselves. Lastly, he mentions that he is excited about the upcoming series.
West Indies skipper, Kieron Pollard says that they had the momentum till the 15th over, but they gave away 85 odd runs in the last 5 overs and lost the momentum there, but they did start the innings well and could not carry on. Mentions that there are some positives to take from the tour, Pooran returns to form which was good to see, and all the young players performed well in these conditions, Rovman Powell was excellent as well. States that all the players were given the opportunities and they put in all the hard work.
Presentation ceremony...
So, India have now made it 9 consecutive wins in T20I matches and have made short work of the 3-match T20I series against West Indies. With this victory, India now becomes the top-ranked side in the World in T20Is. Stay tuned for the presentation...
Harshal Patel is down for a chat. He says that the bowlers need to have clarity at the end overs. One needs to know what delivery to bowl at the death. States that there was a bit of dampness in the wicket because of the weather today, which was making it difficult to bowl, apart from that there was no dew.
Shardul Thakur is up for a quick chat. He says that the ball was holding on to the wicket and they wanted to bowl fuller, as the batters had time to pull the short ball. Mentions that if he is doing the job for India at the death, he needs to know how it's done, he has done it for Chennai for four years now and will look to carry on the same and prepare well for the T20 World Cup as well. States that they have to mentally be tough and it's okay to be hit for boundaries, but they just have to think about the next ball. Says that everyone has to follow a process, he had a plan to bowl wide yorkers, and he stuck to it, no matter what.
It was the same old story for the visitors. The openers faltering, then Nicholas Pooran doing all the repair work alongside Rovman Powell and getting them into the match and then the middle order undoing all the hard work to make things difficult. This is not a pattern any team would want to follow and the Windies need to do a couple of things differently. Holder, Pollard and Chase, all of them seasoned players but just couldn't get going again. Pooran made it three half-centuries in a row in the series and he seems to be back to his best. He will once again feel a bit let down by the fact that he couldn't get his team over the line. Romario Shepherd did keep the hopes alive with a fiery cameo but the Indian bowlers just executed their deliveries brilliantly at the death. West Indies will now look to go back home and reflect on this tour and make the necessary adjustments in order to get better for the T20 World Cup later in the year.
It was Bhuvneshwar Kumar two nights ago and Harshal Patel has replicated his 19th over antics tonight to hand India a convincing win. Deepak Chahar gave the hosts the perfect start by picking up the Windies openers with a couple of beauties before he had to leave the field with an injury. India then were put on the back foot by Pooran and Powell but they roared back into the match. Everyone apart from Ravi Bishnoi and Avesh Khan got into the wickets column. Venkatesh Iyer covered Chahar's overs well and even got a couple of big wickets. Shardul Thakur was given a tap early on but showed his mental strength by coming back strongly at the death. But it was Harshal Patel who was the pick of the bowlers as he picked up 3 wickets and was miserly as well. All in all, a top bowling effort from the hosts.
A big performance at the death from Shardul Thakur and Harshal Patel has seen India clinch yet another close encounter and they do manage to complete the double clean sweep over West Indies. Once again the Windies falter at the final hurdle and round off a disappointing tour with a disappointing loss.

Harshal Patel To Romario Shepherd OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! The 19th over generally is the most important over and Harshal Patel has just bowled a gem of an over so far. A loopy slower ball, full and outside off. This is dipping on the batter and even though Romario Shepherd is waiting for it, it is really difficult to get under it and generate the power to go big. Shepherd forces the big shot over extra cover but can only manage to lift it towards the cover region. Rohit Sharma over there takes a couple of steps back and pouches it comfortably. Is that the final nail in the Windies coffin?

Right on the buzzer, Rohit Sharma decides to make use of the review left for an LBW decision. There's a huge gap between bat and pad and UltraEdge confirms the same. Ball Tracker shows that the impact is umpire's call and the ball is missing leg stump. The on-field decision of NOT OUT will stay. India lose the review but they had to go for it at this stage.

Harshal Patel To Romario Shepherd
TWO LEG BYES! NOT OUT! A full toss ball, on the pads. Romario Shepherd misses his heave and gets hit on the pads and the ball rolls towards third man. An appeal for LBW, but the umpire says no! India opts for a review! There's a huge gap between bat and pad, UltraEdge confirms this! Ball Tracker shows that the impact is the umpire's call and the ball is missing leg stump. The on-field decision stands. Also, the batters steal a leg bye. There was a throw at the non-striker's end but the ball misses the stumps. The batters steal an overthrow in return as well.
Harshal Patel (3-0-16-2) to bowl the all-important penultimate over.

Nicholas Pooran gets low and looks to go over cover, but he gets a thick top edge high towards point. Ishan Kishan the man with the gloves on, runs ahead calls for it, and dives forward to take a sharp catch. Is this the turning point?
Shardul Thakur (2-0-22-0) comes back into the attack, presumably to bowl the 18th and 20th over.

Avesh Khan (3-0-28-0) comes back in to finish his spell. Also, India need to be a bit quick here. They are an over behind and if they continue with this rate, they might be penalized in the final over by being allowed a fielder less in the deep. That could be a huge difference if this does go down to the wire.

This is pitched up around off, a bit in the slot. Holder clears the front leg and just doesn't swing through the line freely.

DRINKS! It was a sensational start to the chase with Deepak Chahar spitting fire with the ball and then Nicholas Pooran and Rovman Powell taking on the Indian bowlers. All that has settled down now and West Indies are a bit on the back foot. A lot rests on the shoulders of Pooran yet again and Jason Holder will be looking to give him the support he needs. A couple of more wickets here for the hosts and the Windies will find it near impossible to win. 98 runs are still needed off 60 balls.

Ravi Bishnoi To Kieron Pollard
NOT OUT! A googly, this one lands outside off, and turns in a bit. Kieron Pollard lunges and looks to flick this one, but misses, and gets pinged on the front pad. A huge appeal from Ravi Bishnoi and Ishan Kishan, but the umpire says no. India opts for a review. The replays roll in. Ball tracker shows that the impact was outside off. The on-field decision stands!
Rohit Sharma asks the bowler and the keeper where the impact was and after a lot of confrontation, does review it. The ball is nowhere near the bat and the umpire goes straight to Ball Tracker, which confirms that the impact was a fair bit outside off. NOT OUT! India lose a review as well.

Deepak Chahar To Kyle Mayers OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! Now India makes fruitful use of DRS and Deepak Chahar has his man! On a nagging length, around off and middle. The ball is angling away and Kyle Mayers leans in to block this.

UltraEdge shows that there was a spike as the ball went past the bat and the decision is reversed yet again. Mayers has to walk back.
Another review! This time it's India who have taken a review against Kyle Mayers for a caught behind decision! The replay rolls in. UltraEdge shows a big spike as the ball passes through the bat. Once again, the decisions needs to be overturned. Kyle Mayers has to walk back this time.
