    Dominating performance by Team India!

    DEEPAK CHAHAR HAS BEEN NAMED THE PLAYER OF THE MATCH. He says that the atmosphere was good to bowl and if there was swing he was looking to bowl up the pitch. Informs that he came to know that he would bowl with the new ball after coming onto the field as Washington Sundar bowled with it in the first 2 T20Is. Deepak says that the one that comes in to the left-hander is a very crucial ball. Further adds that the ball was not moving away much to the southpaws but it was coming in a lot more. Chahar feels that the ball that comes in troubles the batsmen more as that brings lbw, caught and bowled all into play. Chahar tells that in practice he uses the old ball as that helps him in games if there is no swing. Chahar though admits that the ball does not swing after the second or third over.

    IND vs WI Live Updates: Easy run chase for India. They hardly ever looked in trouble. Yes, they lost both their openers early but skipper, Kohli and the young Rishabh Pant steadied the ship and then upped the ante when required. Though the skipper departed before the final hurdle, Pant stayed there till the end and ensured that there was no hiccup. Nothing much to say about the West Indies bowling. Only two bowlers were in the wickets column, Oshane Thomas with two and Allen with one. The latter was economical too but the rest all were expensive given the context of the game. Overall, the bowling was just not good enough to restrict India under this below-par total.

    Well played Rishabh Pant!

  • 12:23 AM IST

    SIX! This is typical Rishabh Pant. Another 7 needed now. A low full toss on the pads, Pant picks it up and slogs it over square leg for a biggie. Effortless. India 140/3 in 17.5 overs vs Windies (146/6)

    IND vs WI Live Score and Updates: OUT! Oshane Thomas removes Virat Kohli for 59. Against the run of play, West Indies have a wicket. Kohli won’t be there to finish things off. A very full ball outside off, Virat reaches out for it and squeezes it out behind square on the off side. It’s aerial and Lewis stretches across to his left to complete the with both hands. No real celebration from anyone, understandably so. IND 133/3 in 17.3 overs, need 14 to win vs WI (146/6)

    FIFTY! Rishabh Pant completes his 2nd half-century in the T20I format. Shots like these make him a special batsman. Cottrell sprays a length ball down the leg side, Pant picks it off his pads, brings his wrists into play and powers it behind square leg. A boundary to reach his fifty, well played young man. 18 needed off 18 balls. IND 129/2 in 17 overs vs WI (146/6)

HIGHLIGHTS – IND vs WI 3rd T20I GUYANA

IND vs WI 3rd T20I Match HIGHLIGHTS from Providence Stadium, Guyana: Team India has put behind the gloom of their World Cup exit behind and started preparations of next year’s World T20 event on an emphatic note as they completed a 3-0 against West Indies. Skipper Virat Kohli and wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant along with fast bowler Deepak Chahar helped India outclass the hosts by 7 wickets in the final T20I at the Providence Stadium in Guyana on Tuesday. In their first assignment after the World Cup semi-final exit, India asserted their dominance over T20 world champions by completing their 6th straight win. India had whitewashed West Indies 3-0 at home last year. Notably, this was also West Indies’ 6th straight loss in the shortest format of the game.

India were reeling in chase of 147 on a sluggish pitch after losing opener Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul cheaply inside the powerplay in chase of 147. However, Kohli and Pant combined for the 3rd wicket and put on a match-winning stand of 106 runs.
