3.3 overs (0 Run) OUT! RUN OUT! Suryakumar Yadav comes, Suryakumar Yadav goes. A short journey for SKY. It is a good-length ball, on middle. Kishan clips it into mid-wicket and takes off for a single. Kyle Mayers though is quick to get to the ball and he scores a direct-hit and have already started celebrating here. In fact, Suryakumar Yadav has started walking off even before the third umpire came to any conclusion. Brilliant piece of fielding by Kyle Mayers. West Indies right on top here.
Is that a run-out? Kyle Mayers with a brilliant piece of fielding and he scores a direct hit at the keeper's end. Suryakumar Yadav doesn't look confident and the decision is sent upstairs. The replays show that SKY is well short and OUT comes up on the big screen.

2.5 overs (0 Run) OUT! CAUGHT! Shubman Gill just got a bit too excited here. One too many shots, one might say. India lose an early wicket, and it is Alzarri Joseph who draws first blood. It is a full-length ball, outside off. Shubman Gill throws the kitchen sink at it, and all he manages to get is a thick outside edge. The ball flies high towards deep point. Shimron Hetmyer is situated there, he judges the carefully, dives forward and takes a sharp catch.

Akeal Hosein to bowl his left-arm finger-spin from the other end.
0.6 over (0 Run) Obed McCoy dishes a length ball, around off, nipping back into the batter. Shubman Gill defends it solidly from inside the crease. So, just a single off the first one.
0.5 over (1 Run) India and Ishan Kishan are off the mark. Finally! It is a length ball, outside off. Ishan Kishan opens tha face late and helps it down to third man. They take a single.

0.3 over (0 Run) Another full-length, delivery. Ishan Kishan leans in and drives it uppishly into covers, but it once again does not carry.
0.2 over (0 Run) Swing and a miss! Ishan Kishan doing Ishan Kishan things, he has come out with the right intent here, but is unable to execute his shot. It is very full, outside off. Ishan Kishan looks to go downtown but gets beaten on the outside edge.
0.1 over (0 Run) Obed McCoy starts with a full toss, but it could've been a wicket-taking delivery as well. Some lady luck for Kishan from the get-go. It is outside off, Ishan Kishan stands tall and slaps it towards mid off, fortunately, it meets the fielder on the bounce.
We are all set for the play to begin! The umpires are out in the middle and so are the players of West Indies. It will be the pair of Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan to open the innings for India. Obed McCoy has the new ball in hand and is raring to go. Let's play...
Rovman Powell, the captain of West Indies is in for a chat. Mentions that they did not lose wickets in cluster and bowled as a unit as well. Hopes that the boys come out with the same mindset. Thinks that they have certainly grown as players. It is just about improving as a batting unit. Mentions that they are sticking to the same side.
Hardik Pandya, the captain of India says that they will bat first as the wicket looks nice and they want to put runs on the board. Adds that he is content with the performance and it is about curtailing the couple of errors they made in the last game. Mentions that when you are chasing not very high totals, you need to keep wickets in hand and it is a learning curve for them. Informs that they have a forced change with Kuldeep Yadav injuring himself in the nets and Ravi Bishnoi comes in to replace him.
West Indies (Unchanged playing XI) - Kyle Mayers, Brandon King, Johnson Charles (WK), Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Rovman Powell (C), Romario Shepherd, Jason Holder, Akeal Hosein, Obed McCoy, Alzarri Joseph.
India (Playing XI) - Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan (WK), Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Hardik Pandya (C), Sanju Samson, Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi (In for Kuldeep Yadav), Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh, Mukesh Kumar.
TOSS - Rovman Powell flips the coin, Hardik Pandya calls for 'Heads' and it comes down as Heads. India win the toss and they will BAT first.
Nevertheless, West Indies proved that the game isn't over until it is over, they gave their all till the very end and got over the line. This character was certainly missing from the Men in Maroon and they will be hoping to carry on with this momentum. Nicholas Pooran seems to be in stunning form, since coming back from USA T20 League. On the other hand, India have ample of talent in their squad, and it won't be surprising even they are able to win four on the bounce from hereon. Expect nothing less than a thriller, as both would be eager for the win here. West Indies would want to extend their gap, and have some breathing space, while India would be desperate to make inroads in this series.
Hello and a warm welcome everyone for the second T20I between West Indies and India. The hosts certainly have the momentum on their side coming into this game, as they have managed to take an early lead in this series against all the odds - considering the position India were in while chasing, one would said it was India's game to lose, and somehow they ended up bottling it.
