India's hero with the ball today, Deepak Chahar is now down for an interview with Murali Kartik. Deepak Chahar 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.

Earlier in the day after a delayed start, India won the toss and opted to bowl. The hosts got off to a brilliant start with the ball picking up early wickets. West Indies though managed to reach a respectable total of 146, courtesy of Pollard who scored a crucial 50. Deepak Chahar was India's star with the ball picking up 3 wickets and giving away just 4 runs in his 3 overs.

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.

Easy-peasy 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.

Carlos Brathwaite to Rishabh Pant. SIX! Dismissive! What a way to finish the chase!

Oshane Thomas to Virat Kohli. OUT! 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.

Oshane Thomas to Virat Kohli. What happened there? Whoa! The ball has touched the stumps but the bails refuse to leave its groove.
