Done with this match and we quickly move on to the next. Yes, it's on Sunday at the same venue in Florida. Do join us at 1030 local time (1430 GMT) for all the action. Until then, it's goodbye and cheers!
Indian skipper, Virat Kohli says that their bowling and fielding were right up there and feels the pitch wasn't too great. Calls it a sluggish wicket and mentions that it was a top effort from his bowlers. Shares that Navdeep had a great last season in the Indian T20 League and he is a raw talent who can bowl in the 150s. He hopes that he builds from here on. Tells that they lost a couple of wickets more than they would have liked. Further says that the new ball was coming on decently but as it got older, stroke-making wasn't easy and strike rotation was the key. Just wants his players to keep performing and contribute to the game.
MAN OF THE MATCH IS NAVDEEP SAINI! No interview taken.
West Indian skipper, Carlos Brathwaite says that they didn't assess the conditions well and praises Kieron Pollard for batting well. Feels 130-140 would have been more challenging. Lack of assessment early enough cost them, he states. Wants his team to play with positive and aggressive intent but at the same time, he wants his players to assess the conditions better. Tells that Narine's four overs in any cricket is vital and lauds his pacers for setting it up well.
Daren Ganga is taking Sunil Narine's interview who has had a good comeback for West Indies. The mystery off spinner says that it's always great to be back in maroon and he is always proud to play for West Indies. Informs that he is nearly fit but his finger is still not 100 percent. Adds that they have to play positive cricket and start well in the Powerplay. Mentions that the coming opportunities are crucial and he wants to be prepared for the World T20. No new innovation in his game, he informs and further states that he is focusing on enjoying cricket.
The visitors fielded an inexperienced bowling attack but the bowlers took the opportunity and proved themselves. Navdeep Saini had a dream debut as he picked up a 3-wicket haul while the other bowlers also left their mark. Apart from Kieron Pollard, there wasn't any fight shown by the West Indian batsmen. During the chase, India kept losing wickets but at the same time, they kept on scoring runs as well. Eventually, the depth in their batting took them over the line and handed the Blue team lead in this 3-match series.
India have limped to a win here in Miami! They made a mountain out of a molehill and nearly made a mess of a simple target. West Indies would be thinking that had they got 40-50 runs more, they could have come out on top. Looking at the approach by the Indian batsmen in the run chase, the Men in Blue will be thanking their bowlers for restricting the opposition for a paltry total.

Keemo Paul To Krunal Pandya OUT!
OUT! Another wicket goes down! Paul steams in from 'round the wicket and angles in a length ball around middle and off at 128 kph. Pandya is early into his attempted flick shot and hence misses the ball completely. The ball doesn't miss the stumps though. India are 8 runs away from a win with 4 wickets left.

Oshane Thomas To Ravindra Jadeja
Sweet timing! Misfield. Two runs taken in the end. Fullish and on off, Jadeja drives it through covers and crosses for a run. Lewis attacks the ball in the deep, overruns a bit and the ball goes through. The batsmen complete two and take one more off the misfield. The fielder has a shy at the bowler's end but misses. Carlos Brathwaite is lazy in backing up but no extra run taken.
