India vs West Indies Highlights And Cricket Score 3rd Match - T20I Summary

End of Over : 20.0 WI: 173/8

So, a Kohli masterclass in the 1st game and then the visitors went bang bang in the second one to level the series. And, we witnessed a sixathon here at the Wankhede with Kohli's men lifting the trophy, with a win in the decider. What's next? Well, West Indies will look to challenge the Indians in the 50-over format in the three match series. The first one of those starts on Sunday, 15th December, 2019 at 1.30 pm local (0800 GMT). We will love to have your company for that game. Till then, cheers and take care.

VIRAT KOHLI GETS THE MAN OF THE SERIES. The Indian skipper, starts by saying that they have been speaking a lot of about batting first. Tells that he had a chance to do something different than what he does. Adds that he told Rahul that he will look to smash as many balls as possible and Rahul to hold one end. Tells that it is a special innings for him and says that it is a gift on his second wedding anniversary. On putting the big total, Kohli says that to gain confidence, one needs to score a massive total. Tells that Rahul and Rohit started brilliantly and they tried to get 25-30 extra runs by playing attacking cricket. Talking about hitting fours and sixes, the Indian skipper feels that it depends on which ground one is playing. Tells that boundaries in such games play a major roll. Feels that things can be different when one goes to Australia for the World Cup as the boundary sizes can be different there.

MAN OF THE MATCH GOES TO KL RAHUL FOR A BRILLIANT 91-RUN KNOCK. He starts by saying that Rohit and Virat were more destructive than him. Says that they are happy with the result and mentions that every game is important leading to the T20I World Cup. Talking about batting first, Rahul says that a lot of talk is going around that. Tells that they tried to put on a good total which the bowlers can defend. Says that leading to the World Cup in Australia, they would like to bat first more often. On the various formats, Rahul says that formats doesn't really matter as once the batter is set, run scoring becomes easy. Tells that his role is pretty clear to him and he tries his best to help his side win the game.

West Indies skipper, Kieron Pollard, says that he wants to take positives from the entire series. Tells that scoring 200 runs consistently is not easy. Says that they need to execute with the ball better but insists that it is work in progress. On the target, Pollard says that such totals have been chased here. Talking on Indian openers, Pollard says that they exploded from the start and did not allow the inexperienced bowlers to settle. On the upcoming T20 World Cup, Pollard says that there are a lot of young players in their domestic ranks. Tells that to succeed, one needs to work hard day in and day out.

Kumar says that he was happy that he got the wicket of Pollard. States that he is a good player and says that one can expect to be hit when he is batting. On how to get him out, he says that they can't bowl length balls to him and they have to rely on bowling bouncers. Adds that the outfield is fast and ball travels fast so it is difficult to bowl on this wicket. Stay tuned for the presentation.

Earlier, the Indian top order went full throttle as they put on a massive total in front of the visitors. Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul added a massive 135-run stand for the opening wicket to give India a flying start. Then came the skipper, he was at his aggressive best during his 29-ball 70 to help India post such a massive mountain in front of the visitors. Before we get to the presentation, we've got Bhuvneshwar Kumar chatting with Sanjay Manjrekar.

As long as Indian bowling is concerned, Chahar, Kumar and Shami started brilliantly and ended up two wickets apiece. While Kumar got some thrashing, the duo of Chahar and Shami gave just 45 runs between them for 4 wickets. Kuldeep too was expensive in his four overs but the way Pollard was hitting and with dew on the ground, can't completely blame the bowler. With Pollard's onslaught going on, they kept their cool and eventually got the wicket of him. And once the Windies skipper departed, it was nothing but over for the visitors.

Indians started brilliantly with the ball and pegged the run chase with three quick wickets, with each of them coming from the three Indian pacers. However, Hetmyer and Pollard with a brilliant 74-run stand kept the Windies in the hunt. Hetmyer fell on a long hop to Kuldeep and things looked to go beyond the visitors. However, Pollard did not give up and continued going bonkers. He smashed 6 sixes and 5 fours on his way to 68. He miscued one off Kumar and with his wicket the series was done and dusted there itself.

That's it then. Another series win for Kohli's men at home. The domination from the Men in Blue continue. West Indies, courtesy a brilliant half ton from Pollard and a whipping 41 from Hetmyer did present some fight after a very poor start. However, once Pollard departed, things were beyond the reach of the visitors.
