HIGHLIGHTS

  • 23:59 (IST)

    Well, official news coming in is that India have won the game by 22 runs on the D/L method. The match has been called off, with this India also seal the series 2-0 with one game left to play!

  • 22:58 (IST)

    OUT! Krunal now removes Powell. He slides it in quicker and it raps Powell on the pads. The umpire raises the finger and Powell reviews but it's three reds and he too has to go. India are on top now. 

  • 22:55 (IST)

    OUT! Pooran swipes hard at a slightly wide delivery from Krunal but finds Manish Pandey at long-on, who catches the ball then throws it high as he goes over the boundary rope but recovers easily to collect. Good time to get a wicket for India. 

  • 22:23 (IST)

    SIX! Powell has taken a liking to Khaleel Ahmed as he gets smoked over long-off for the game's first maximum. Khaleel pulls things back well but an overpitched ball sees the over end with a four. West Indies are slowly clawing back into the game. 

  • 22:05 (IST)

    BOWLED! Narine has to go and Washington has his first wicket. The pressure was on the opener, who had played 9 dot balls before charging down. He missed the ball completely and it rattled his stumps. West Indies two down already. 

  • 21:59 (IST)

    OUT! Bhuvneshwar strikes in his very first over as he removes Evin Lewis. The batsman played at a slower ball and it just ballooned up and the pacer did well to collect the return catch. India have an early wicket. 

  • 21:40 (IST)

    Huge final over for India, three maximums in the over as Krunal Pandya gets first two into the stands and then another one by Jadeja goes into the crowd. Just what the doctor ordered as far as India were concerned. They end on 167/5 after 20 overs!

  • 21:35 (IST)

    OUT! Smart bowling by Sheldon Cottrell. He alters his length and bangs in a short ball around middle and leg. Manish Pandey stays leg side of the delivery and attempts to pull it over the leg side. But there is good bounce on this one and it takes the top edge. The keeper jumps to pouch the catch and once again Pandey fails to impress.

  • 21:23 (IST)

    WICKET! What a delivery from Cottrell here, Kohli looks to hit across the line but completely misses the ball. Sees his middle-stump go for a toss here, Cottrell brings out the salute and India are now 132/4. Kohli departs for 29.

  • 21:16 (IST)

    WICKET! Well Pant departs cheaply yet again here, shot and fast from Thomas. That really seems to be the strategy against Pant, he looks to play it down the third man but gets a thick edge and the ball goes flying down the throat of Pollard. Pant departs for 4 and India are now 126/3

  • 21:09 (IST)

    WICKET! That's the end of Rohit Sharma, he was hit on the elbow but and that might have played a part in the dismissal. Looks to hit straight but gets it in the air, easy catch for Hetmyer. Rohit departs for 67 and India are 115/2

  • 20:56 (IST)

    50! Rohit Sharma completes his half-century, what a fine innings this from the opener. Off just 40 balls on a tough pitch! He also deposits Narine into the stands in the over. He has played his natural game today and looked a class above the rest. India are 87/1 after 11 overs.

23:59 (IST)

Well, official news coming in is that India have won the game by 22 runs on the D/L method. The match has been called off, with this India also seal the series 2-0 with one game left to play!

23:12 (IST)

Scratch that, it's not raining. The play has been stopped knowing that it will rain shortly. It has become very windy there and the skies are dark. In the event of a washout, India will win the match as West Indies are behind the DLS par score of 120. 

23:09 (IST)

Ravindra Jadeja's first over is an eventful one despite going for just six runs as a couple of half-chances are put down. Then a sudden change in weather sees the players go off. Covers are out. Yes, it's raining. 

22:58 (IST)

OUT! Krunal now removes Powell. He slides it in quicker and it raps Powell on the pads. The umpire raises the finger and Powell reviews but it's three reds and he too has to go. India are on top now. 

22:55 (IST)

OUT! Pooran swipes hard at a slightly wide delivery from Krunal but finds Manish Pandey at long-on, who catches the ball then throws it high as he goes over the boundary rope but recovers easily to collect. Good time to get a wicket for India. 

22:51 (IST)

Powell brings up his half-century with a single off Saini then later in the over creams one down the ground for a boundary, which was also a no-ball. The resulting free hit goes for nothing as Saini bowls a good slower one and Powell can't connect. West Indies 83-2 in 13 overs. 

22:45 (IST)

Krunal ruins a perfectly good over that had only gone for 3 by bowling a half-tracker that Powell duly pulls away for a six. West Indies need more of this though otherwise the game will be beyond reach soon. 

22:41 (IST)

Khaleel follows up with another good over that goes for just 4. West Indies will need to force the issue soon since their run rate is already climbing. For India, more of the same works. 

22:36 (IST)

Krunal now comes on to bowl and his first over is a good one, giving away just the 5 runs and no boundaries. West Indies are 62-2 with half their overs played and require another 106 runs. 

22:32 (IST)

SIX! Powell goes down on one knee and sweep slogs Washington over deep backward square, the ball easily clearing the fence. Krunal saves a certain boundary at fine leg with a wonderful diving effort to end the over. West Indies are 57-2 in 9 overs. 

22:28 (IST)

Powell now inside edges one from Saini that flies to the boundary. Not that they'll care how the runs come. He then outside edges one that runs away for a boundary towards third man. West Indies 46-2 after 8 overs. 

22:23 (IST)

SIX! Powell has taken a liking to Khaleel Ahmed as he gets smoked over long-off for the game's first maximum. Khaleel pulls things back well but an overpitched ball sees the over end with a four. West Indies are slowly clawing back into the game. 

22:18 (IST)

FOUR and FOUR! Pooran now gets in on the action as he hits Navdeep Saini, who's bowling his first over of the day., for boundaries at the beginning and end of the over. They are 25-2 at the end of the powerplay. 

22:13 (IST)

FOUR! Rovman Powell absolutely creams one straight down the ground off Khaleel Ahmed for a boundary. What a way to get off the mark. West Indies are 16-2 in 5 overs. 

22:09 (IST)

Bhuvneshwar's second over is as good as his first as he goes for just the one run. West Indies need to rebuild and attack in quick succession if they are to stand any chance of winning this game. 

22:05 (IST)

BOWLED! Narine has to go and Washington has his first wicket. The pressure was on the opener, who had played 9 dot balls before charging down. He missed the ball completely and it rattled his stumps. West Indies two down already. 

21:59 (IST)

OUT! Bhuvneshwar strikes in his very first over as he removes Evin Lewis. The batsman played at a slower ball and it just ballooned up and the pacer did well to collect the return catch. India have an early wicket. 

21:56 (IST)

21:40 (IST)

Huge final over for India, three maximums in the over as Krunal Pandya gets first two into the stands and then another one by Jadeja goes into the crowd. Just what the doctor ordered as far as India were concerned. They end on 167/5 after 20 overs!

21:35 (IST)

OUT! Smart bowling by Sheldon Cottrell. He alters his length and bangs in a short ball around middle and leg. Manish Pandey stays leg side of the delivery and attempts to pull it over the leg side. But there is good bounce on this one and it takes the top edge. The keeper jumps to pouch the catch and once again Pandey fails to impress.

21:30 (IST)

Another solid over from Keemo Paul here, he concedes only 6 runs in the over. Only 1s and 2s at the moment, India really struggling in the second half of the innings here, they are now 141/4 with two overs left!

21:27 (IST)

Krunal Pandya and Manish Pandey are out in the middle now for India, important for India to finish strongly here. They should be atleast looking to post 160 here, while West Indies will want to restrict the men in blue to a score below 150 here

21:23 (IST)

WICKET! What a delivery from Cottrell here, Kohli looks to hit across the line but completely misses the ball. Sees his middle-stump go for a toss here, Cottrell brings out the salute and India are now 132/4. Kohli departs for 29.

21:16 (IST)

WICKET! Well Pant departs cheaply yet again here, shot and fast from Thomas. That really seems to be the strategy against Pant, he looks to play it down the third man but gets a thick edge and the ball goes flying down the throat of Pollard. Pant departs for 4 and India are now 126/3

21:15 (IST)

Kohli using his wrists for maximum effort there as he comes down the track and just whips the ball through mid-wicket to pick a boundary. India pick 9 runs from that Narine over, they move onto 126/2 after 15 overs

21:04 (IST)

Rohit now picks the slower ball to deposit the ball over deep midwicket before again finding the boundary on a full toss. He is looking really good in the middle today. India are 111/1 after 13 overs here!

21:01 (IST)

Virat Kohli joins the party now, comes down the track and absolutely clobbers that over the sight screen for a maximum. India certainly not looking to hang around here, they have started moving up the gears here!

20:56 (IST)

50! Rohit Sharma completes his half-century, what a fine innings this from the opener. Off just 40 balls on a tough pitch! He also deposits Narine into the stands in the over. He has played his natural game today and looked a class above the rest. India are 87/1 after 11 overs.

India Vs West Indies, 2nd T20I in Florida Highlights: As It Happened

India vs West Indies 1st T20I, Latest Updates: Scratch that, it's not raining. The play has been stopped knowing that it will rain shortly. It has become very windy there and the skies are dark. In the event of a washout, India will win the match as West Indies are behind the DLS par score of 120.

PREVIEW: The Virat Kohli-led Team India will aim to clinch the three-match T20I rubber series against the West Indies when they face-off in the second contest at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground here on Sunday. In the series opener on Saturday, India defeated the West Indies by four wickets to take a 1-0 lead. The Indian bowlers came all gun blazing to restrict their opposition at a paltry 95 runs after Kohli decided to bowl first.

Debutant right-arm pacer Navdeep Saini was the pick of the Indian bowlers as he claimed three wickets conceding just 17 runs. The 26-year-old pacer will aim to replicate the show on Sunday and cement his place in the side. Meanwhile, Bhuvneshwar Kumar picked two wickets in India's win while Washington Sundar, Khaleel Ahmed, Krunal Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja also grabbed a wicket each.

The Indians were also helped by some poor shot selection by the Windies batsmen. Chasing 96, India made a heavy weather of the small target before overhauling it 17.2 overs. Opener Rohit Sharma was the top scorer for India with his 24 runs while Kohli and Manish Pandey contributed with 19 runs each. While the bowlers were decent, the batsmen struggled with the bat as the wicket was not easy to bat on.

They would, however, try to improve in Sunday's clash. For the West Indies, Kieron Pollard was the only one who showed a fight with the bat with his 49 runs -- the top-scorer. The right-hander missed out on a well deserved fifty after being dismissed in the last over of the innings. As all the other Windies batsmen failed on Saturday, they would certainly be looking for a decent show as another loss will see India clinching the series.

In their bowling, Sunil Narine had picked the crucial wickets of Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant in consecutive deliveries and conceded just 14 runs in his quota of four overs. While India won't try to make any changes in their playing eleven and would stick to the winning combination, West Indies could include an extra spinner in Rovman Powell as the wicket might again be on the slower side.

Squads:

India: Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Krunal Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Washington Sundar, Rahul Chahar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini

West Indies: John Campbell, Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard, Rovman Powell, Carlos Brathwaite, Keemo Paul, Sunil Narine, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Anthony Bramble, Andre Russell, Khary Pierre.
