India's hero with the ball today, Deepak Chahar is now down for an interview with Murali Kartik. Deepak Chahar says that the atmosphere was good to bowl and if there was swing he was looking to bowl up the pitch. Informs that he came to know that he would bowl with the new ball after coming onto the field as Washington Sundar bowled with it in the first 2 T20Is. Deepak says that the one that comes in to the left-hander is a very crucial ball. Further adds that the ball was not moving away much to the southpaws but it was coming in a lot more. Chahar feels that the ball that comes in troubles the batsmen more as that brings lbw, caught and bowled all into play. Chahar tells that in practice he uses the old ball as that helps him in games if there is no swing. Chahar though admits that the ball does not swing after the second or third over.
Earlier in the day after a delayed start, India won the toss and opted to bowl. The hosts got off to a brilliant start with the ball picking up early wickets. West Indies though managed to reach a respectable total of 146, courtesy of Pollard who scored a crucial 50. Deepak Chahar was India's star with the ball picking up 3 wickets and giving away just 4 runs in his 3 overs.
Nothing much to say about the West Indies bowling. Only two bowlers were in the wickets column, Oshane Thomas with two and Allen with one. The latter was economical too but the rest all were expensive given the context of the game. Overall, the bowling was just not good enough to restrict India under this below-par total.
Easy-peasy run chase for India. They hardly ever looked in trouble. Yes, they lost both their openers early but skipper, Kohli and the young Rishabh Pant steadied the ship and then upped the ante when required. Though the skipper departed before the final hurdle, Pant stayed there till the end and ensured that there was no hiccup.

Oshane Thomas To Virat Kohli OUT!
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.

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.

Oshane Thomas To KL Rahul
In the air... just wide! FOUR! Rahul is flirting with danger here. Oshane Thomas bowls this short and outside off, Rahul slashes at it. The ball goes off the outside edge to the left of third man. The fielder runs to his right and dives with one hand stretched out but can't reach it.

Oshane Thomas To Virat Kohli
Slightly shorter and outside off, not a bad ball as Thomas is bowling to his field. Kohli guides it through cover-point. There is a fielder in the deep so just a run.

Sheldon Cottrell To KL Rahul
DROPPED! Harsh to call that one though as it was a top effort. A short ball around off, Rahul stands tall and pulls it uppishly towards mid-wicket. Lewis there dives to his right and looks to take it with one hand but the ball does not stick. In the end, he saves two.

Sheldon Cottrell To KL Rahul
FOUR! Poor ball and put away! Way too short and on the pads, Rahul helps it on its way to the fine leg fence. Not a good option with the fine leg up.

A little too straight on middle, this is worked around the corner for one.

Oshane Thomas To Shikhar Dhawan OUT!
OUT! Straight to the man! A soft, soft dismissal that. Dhawan must be gutted at the moment. West Indies though will rejoice as they get the start they want. Oshane Thomas draws first blood. He bowls it short and on the body of Dhawan. Dhawan pulls but hits it straight to short fine leg where Cottrell makes no mistake. A little to that fielder's left or right and it would have been a boundary. India need 137 from 108.

Oshane Thomas To Shikhar Dhawan
On the shorter side and outside off, Dhawan looks to pull but mistimes it to mid-wicket.
Oshane Thomas might have done some damage to himself as he tried to stop the ball. The physio is out.

Oshane Thomas To Shikhar Dhawan
A couple now! Fuller and on middle, Dhawan strokes it to the right of the bowler. Thomas does get a hand to it and hence, it is just two as mid on runs behind it and stops it.

Oshane Thomas To Shikhar Dhawan
Almost plays it on! Loose shot that! This is a good length ball outside off, Dhawan throws his bat at it but the ball goes off the inside edge past the leg pole and towards short fine leg.

A good comeback! A yorker but on the pads, Rahul looks to flick but misses to get hit on the pads. An appeal but the umpire shakes his head.

SIX! That is some way to get off the mark! What a shot. Authoritative. Rahul comes down the track and gets to the pitch of the ball. He lofts it over mid off's head and it goes all the way.

A straighter line again, Rahul works it to the man at mid-wicket. The new opener needs a few sighters.

Goes fuller and a little inward movement for the bowler. Rahul works it to mid on.
We are back for the chase! The Indian openers, KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan make their way out to the middle. Sheldon Cottrell has the new ball in hand and he will be bowling to the right-hander. Here we go...
