  • August 06, 2023 23:24
    WI 132/8 in 17

    Mukesh Kumar comes to bowl his third over the game. Akeal Hosein gets a single from the first ball. Alzarri Joseph gets a single too, off the pads. Mukesh to Hosein, CLOSE! Huge appeal for LBW, denied by the umpire, rightly so as the ball was way down the leg and India wasted its last review. Hosein tucks the ball at fine leg for a single. Mukesh bowls two dots to give just three off this over.

  • August 06, 2023 23:15
    WI 128/8 in 16 overs

He was sent back by Hetmyer who took a quick single while he was halfway down the pitch. India feels they are back with two quick wickets. Chahal to Holder, OUT! Stumped! Quick glovework behind the wickets to send Holder back on duck as well! Game on! Akeal Hosein takes a single to get off the mark with a single. Chahal to Hetmyer, OUT!

  • August 06, 2023 23:12
    WI 127/5 in 15 overs

    Ravi Bishnoi with his last over. Bishnoi to Hetmyer, CLOSE! hits him on pads, a huge appeal for LBW which was denied by the on-field umpire. India goes for DRS but the ball was pitching outside off-stumps which saves Hetmyer. He could only manage a single off the last ball as Bishnoi gave just a single from his last over of the innings.

  • August 06, 2023 23:07
    WI 126/5 in 14 overs

    Mukesh Kumar comes back into the attack. He gives three singles in the first four balls. Kumar to Pooran, SIX! Low full toss, down the leg, easy pickings for Pooran as he just guides it past backward square leg. Kumar to Pooran, OUT! Finally, India gets the dangerman but it’s too late too little now. Pooran looks to end the over with another boundary but slashes the outside off ball to Sanju Samson who picked the catch in rebound at cover point.

    WI 99/4 in 11 overs

    Ravi Bishnoi comes back into the attack. Bishnoi to Hetmyer, OUT! Edged and caught by Gill at slips. A wonderful catch by Gill as he judged it early to go down on time to catch the ball. The umpires referred it upstairs and the replays showed it bounced just before Gill. The decision overturned to NOT OUT in big screen Bishnoi to Pooran, SIX! Where did this go? He not only cleared the long-on fence but dispatched the ball out of the ground. Eight off the over as the required run rate comes down to 6 RPO.

  • August 06, 2023 22:46
    WI 91/4 in 10 overs

    Hardik comes back into the attack. Hardik to Pooran, he gets a single and brings up his 10th T20I fifty! Brilliant counter-attacking knock to lead West Indies to the total comfortably here.

    Hardik to Powell, FOUR! Slower ball, outside off and Powell sliced away past backward point.

    Hardik to Powell, OUT! The captain removed the captain as this time Hardik surprised Powell with a short ball, onto the body and Powell sliced it but straight to Mukesh at third man.

  • August 06, 2023 22:37
    WI 82/3 in 9 overs

    WI 72/3 in 8 overs

    Good recovery from Bishnoi, gives just four singles from this over.

  • August 06, 2023 22:30
    WI 68/3 in 7 overs

    Yuzvendra Chahal comes into the attack. Chahal starts with a wide, Kishan collects and appeals for stumping as he had the ball in hand and waited enough for Powell to lose his balance. Footage shows the foot was grounded as Powell survives. Pooran gets an inside edge to fine leg and goes for a quick double, he charges down and safely comes in before Kishan can dislodge the bails. Three singles to end the over which fetched seven from the over.

  • August 06, 2023 22:23
    WI 61/3 in 6 overs

  • August 06, 2023 22:19
    WI 43/3 in 5 overs

Kumar to Pooran, FOUR! Two in two for in-form Pooran. This time drives over covers for the second boundary. 10 off the over.

  • August 06, 2023 22:11
    WI 33/3 in 4 overs

    Arshdeep continues. Arshdeep to Mayers, FOUR! Slices it at third-man for a boundary. Arshdeep to Mayers, SIX! A good-length ball, wide of off-stumps and whacked away by Mayers it at long-on. This is a good recovery from West Indies. Arshdeep to Mayers, OUT! Commentator’s curse, as Mayers got trapped in front by Arshdeep this time. Plays the wrong line as the ball hits him on the pads. He takes a review but the decision is upheld due to the umpire’s call. Captain Rovman Powell is the new batter. 12 off the over.

    Kyle Mayers lbw b Arshdeep Singh 15 (7b 2x4 1x6)

Short and wide, punished by Pooran, who cuts it to get the second boundary of the over, this time behind backward point. Pandya to Mayers, FOUR! An error from Pandya, he bowls down the leg and Mayers takes the gift with both hands by flicking it at fine leg. 17 runs from this over.

    WI 4/2 in 2 overs

    Arshdeep Singh comes from the other end in the attack. Kyle Mayers gets a single. Arshdeep to Pooran, OUT! A hint of movement as it hits Pooran on his back pad and the umpire gives it in India’s favour. Pooran reviews it immediately and survives as the ball was missing the stumps, confirmed by the DRS. Nonetheless a great start from India. Pooran gets off the mark with a single. Two from the second over.

  • August 06, 2023 21:54
    WI 2/2 in 1 over

    Hardik Pandya comes into the attack with the new ball in hand. Brandon King and Kyle Mayers open for West Indies in a 153-run chase. Hardik to King, OUT! What a catch from Suryakumar Yadav at short extra covers! He dives on his right to catch King out who drives the out swinging delivery in his direction. Johnson Charles comes in at number three. He gets off the mark with a double from a low drive, over covers. Hardik to Charles, OUT! This time it is Tilak Varma at the forward point! Nicholas Pooran, the new batter at number four. A great start for Pandya to give India a headstart in the defence of 152 runs.

    Alzarri Joseph comes back into the attack. Joseph to Pandya, SIX! This is sheer power. He generates so much strength from his shoulders. Not an easy shot to execute but Pandya hit a flat-batted six down the ground, without moving an inch from the popping crease. Joseph to Pandya, OUT! Bowled! He castled his fellow Gujarat Titans player with a yorker. Pandya tried to block it but the ball went through his defence to give India its sixth blow. Nine and a wicket from this over.

  • August 06, 2023 21:25
    IND 120/5 in 17 overs

Hosein follows it up with a back-of-length ball that hits Pandya’s knee roll. An appeal followed from the bowler but it was sliding down leg. Hosein to Varma, OUT! Varma could not find the needed connection this time and could only manage to hit it to Obed McCoy at deep backward square.

    Match Preview

    India’s most sought-after IPL stars will have a reputation to defend and parity to restore when they take on a quality West Indies side in the second T20 International of the five-match series on Sunday.

    A boundary was the difference between the two teams in the opening game in Tarouba, where the West Indies prevailed on a slow batting track with an impressive bowling effort at the back end.


    The T20I series is of little consequence in an ODI World Cup year, but skipper Hardik Pandya and his deputy Suryakumar Yadav would expect to put on a far-improved batting show, both individually and collectively.

    The duo along with Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill and Sanju Samson are all looking at the ODI World Cup but no one would mind a few good knocks which will give them some confidence ahead of the Asia Cup.



    Yashasvi Jaiswal, Ishan Kishan (wk), Shubman Gill, Suryakumar Yadav, Sanju Samson, Hardik Pandya (c), Axar Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik, Mukesh Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Avesh Khan, Ravi Bishnoi, Tilak Varma.
