  • 23:17 (IST)

  • 23:08 (IST)

    India vs West Indies Live: Superb spell from Hosein!

    Akeal Hosein ends his quota of four overs with figures of 1 for 17. He also bowled in the powerplay, yet remained economical. The spinner provided a solid start to West Indies in bowling and that keeps that a bit ahead of India at this juncture in the game. India need 60 runs in 42 balls.

    IND 90/4 (13)

  • 23:05 (IST)

    India have scored 70 runs at the loss of three wickets in the first 10 overs. They need the remaining 80 runs in the next 60 balls. Saving wickets and building partnership should be the first target for India as an asking rate of 8 runs per over is not much on this surface.

  • 22:31 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live Score: FOUR!

    Tilak Varma will get a four due to a fielding error from West Indies. The fielder threw the ball at stumps to run out Varma. There was no backing so the ball ran to the fence for a four.

    IND 45/2 (6)

  • 22:28 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live Score: FOUR!

    Another exquisite shot from Tilak Varma. He is hitting it so well. A short ball from Alzarri Joseph and Tilak has slammed it away for a four this time. This is superb batting from the Indian debutant.

  • 22:14 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live Score: West Indies in control!

    India are scoring at 3.33 runs per over and they need 8.24 runs per over from here. Smart approach from West Indies to start with spinner Akeal Hosein and then handing him a second over on trot.

    IND 10/1 (3)

  • 22:08 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live Score: WICKET!

    Akeal Hosein gets Shubman Gill! It was a flighted delivery from Hosein and Gill was beaten by it. Since the Indian batter had come down the track by then, it was all curtains for him. This is now a superb start for West Indies/

    IND 5/1 (2.2)

  • 22:03 (IST)

  • 21:35 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live Score: WICKET!

  • 21:33 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live Score: Impressive bowling!

    Mukesh Kumar conceded only six singles off his second over. Despite both Windies batters on the attacking mode, Mukesh managed to keep them in the noose. This is impressive bowling from the T20I debutant.

    WI 134/4 (18)

  • 21:28 (IST)

    IND vs WI Live Score: 13-run over

    Arshdeep Singh’s third over was an expensive one. Three more over to go and West Indies should post something above 160. Anything below, it surely a below-par score on this pitch. 

    WI 128/4 (17)
