Match Ended   
164/5 (20.0/20)
165/3 (19.0/20)
India beat West Indies by 7 wickets
Right then! Three games done and two still to go. India have the advantage as they are 2-1 up and need just one more win to seal the series victory. The action now moves to Lauderhill, Florida in the USA for the remaining two T20Is and it sure will be exciting. The 4th T20I will be played on Saturday, the 6th of August and will begin at 8 pm IST (2.30 pm GMT). Our build-up though will begin much sooner. Do join us then, take care and goodbye!
The Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma says that he is fine and they have a few days before the next game so he has time for recovery. Mentions that they bowled well in the middle overs and they used the conditions very well. Adds that even the way they chased was very clinical and was achieved with minimal risks. Says that it is very important in this format to convert the starts and when you get past 70 or 80 runs, then that makes a difference. Says that when you chase such a target, anything could happen but they played the right shots.
Nicholas Pooran, the skipper of West Indies says they should have taken some early wickets. He feels they had enough runs on the board but India bowled really well despite the wicket being on the slower side. Shares that they kept losing wickets regularly after getting to a good start. Mentions there are a lot of things to learn. Feels like they were 10-15 runs short but early wickets could've changed the game for them though.
Suryakumar Yadav (76 off 44 balls) is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH for his match-winning innings. He says that he is very happy with his performance. Adds that it was important to bat deep as the skipper departed early. Says that they were aware of the pitch and someone had to bat deep and win the game for the team. Shares that he has done this in the Indian T20 League before so he loves to play this kind of innings. Ends by saying he backs himself and enjoys the game.
The presentation ceremony...
Earlier in the game, Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to bowl first which didn't work out in the Powerplay with Kyle Mayers taking a liking to the Indian pacers. But once Hardik Pandya got the first breakthrough, the run rate slowed down. Even though India weren't able to get wickets, Pandya and Ashwin bogged down the Windies batters. With Mayers back in the hut as well, it was time for Rovman Powell and Shimron Hetmyer to flex their muscles and Avesh Khan was majorly on the receiving end of the carnage throughout the innings. Having asked to get 165 runs on a pitch that was used and favoured the pacers, it was Suryakumar Yadav for India who took on the responsibility of killing the chase in the first 10 overs and he did exactly that. In the end, the hosts were outclassed and will now have to bounce back yet again if they are to level the series.
At the halfway mark, West Indies would have been certain that they have a more than a defendable score on the board but their bowlers have let the team down. The Indian batters had a bit of an issue against the left-handed bowlers and hence, Dominic Drakes was brought in as well but he proved to be largely ineffective. The hero of the previous game, Obed McCoy couldn't repeat the trick this time around and only Akeal Hosein showed a bit of control with the ball. In the end, the pitch didn't have enough wear and tear on it to trouble the batters and the Windies bowlers were blown away.
The pitch was a used one and West Indies had an above-par score on the board. India would have found it a bit more challenging to get the win but the way Suryakumar Yadav attacked the Windies bowlers right from the off, the game was completely turned on its head. Skipper Rohit Sharma retired hurt after a breezy start but then came the partnership between Suryakumar Yadav and Shreyas Iyer, where Yadav was in full flow. Later on, Yadav got out after a big score but by that time India had the game in the bag and Rishabh Pant added the finishing touches to take his side over the line.
A very comfortable victory in the end for India as they have put on a commanding show to take a 2-1 lead in the five-match series against West Indies. The visitors will now head into the USA leg of the tour needing just one win to seal the series.

Halt in play! Rohit Sharma has called the physio. Okay, hold on! Sharma is walking off the field! RETIRED HURT! Not quite sure what happened there but might be due to dehydration. Also, while scoring the last boundary, two balls earlier, he pulled his lower-back muscle as he is seen holding his back. A huge blow for India early on in the chase.
