India vs West Indies 2nd T20 highlights: WI level series after thrilling five-wicket win over IND
India vs West Indies 2nd T20I highlights: India's bowlers managed to take the match to the last over despite defending a target of 139 but Devon Thomas managed to take the hosts over the line.
IND vs WI 2nd T20 Highlights: Brandon King's half century and Devon Thomas's finishing act followed up on Obed McCoy's record six-wicket haul to help the West Indies finally record a victory against India at home in a T20I. It was the first time the hosts had managed to beat India at home in the shortest format of the game since 2019. The Indian bowlers managed to take the game to the last over despite defending a low target of 139. West Indies looked like they were on course to a straightforward win for much of their innings. However, the fall of Nicholas Pooran and Shimron Hetmyer within a few balls of each other and the set Brandon King put pressure on the hosts. Wicketkeeper-batter Devon Thomas then took them over the line with a four and a six in the 20th over. Earlier, McCoy recorded figures of 6/17, the best by a West Indies bowler in T20Is, as India fell for just 138 runs.

India vs West Indies 2nd T20I: West Indies need 10 to win off the last over
Avesh Khan is bowling the last over, Odean Smith is on strike with Devon Thomas at the non-striker's end. Quite surprising that Bhuvneshwar has not been given the ball. Here we go then.
Aug 02, 2022 02:16 AM IST
India vs West Indies: SIX! Exactly what the West indies need
Good length ball from Pandya angling into Thomas, he goes for an almighty pull and sends the ball soaring into the stands. West Indies are 123/4 at the end of that over, need 16 to win in the last two.
Aug 02, 2022 02:11 AM IST
IND vs WI Live: WI 112/4 in 17 overs
The tables have turned now. Rovman Powell and Devon Thomas in the middle and they have been kept silence by Arshdeep Singh. All of a sudden, they have a required run rate of 9 and their current run rate is just 6.58.
Aug 02, 2022 02:03 AM IST
IND vs WI 2nd T20I Live: GONE! Avesh gets King!
Stumps rattled off the very next ball. King moves too early, Avesh spots and sends in a searing full delivery that smashes into the bottom of middle stump. A good innings from King but this is exactly what the West Indies didn't want. All of a sudden, this has become a tricky chase.
King b Avesh Khan 68 (52), West Indies 107/4 in 15.3 overs
Aug 02, 2022 02:01 AM IST
India vs West Indies 2nd T20I live: SIX!
Good length ball outside off, King stands and clubs it over the bowler's head for six. That is a shot they can use very well.
Aug 02, 2022 01:57 AM IST
IND vs WI 2nd T20I Live: West Indies 94/3 in 14 overs
Those wickets of Pooran and Hetmyer have reduced the run rate for the West Indies and India will be looking to keep the pressure up. Lots noise around the batters.
Aug 02, 2022 01:48 AM IST
IND vs WI Live: OUT! Hetmyer has to go!
Another low score from Hetmyer. Good length on leg stump by Jadeja which cramps Hetmyer for room, the batter makes room but it is not enough and he hits it straight back to Jadeja.
Hetmyer c & b Jadeja 6 (10), WI 83/3 (12.3)
Aug 02, 2022 01:48 AM IST
India vs West Indies: 50 for King!
Aug 02, 2022 01:43 AM IST
India vs West Indies 2nd T20I: Hetmyer survives!
It's all going the hosts' way at the moment. Hetmyer seemed to have nicked it to the keeper off Pandya. Pant took the catch diving forward and Hetmyer had begun to walk back but the umpires consult and decide to go upstairs with a soft signal of not out. It is one of those borderline cases and the third umpire doesn't have enough evidence to overturn the soft signal. Hetmyer jogs back to the pitch with a smile on his face.
Aug 02, 2022 01:36 AM IST
India vs West Indies 2nd T20I live: GONE! Pooran falls
Ashwin with the big wicket. Pooran goes for another lofted shoot and this time finds long on. Full delivery on middle and off, Pooran opens the face of the bat but doesn't time it well enough.
Pooran c Yadav b Ashwin 14 (11), West Indies 71/2 (9.4 overs)
Aug 02, 2022 01:31 AM IST
IND vs WI 2nd T20I Live: West Indies 68/1 after 9 overs
All well under control for the West Indies at the moment. Their current run rate is well above the required rate and they have quite a lot of good batting left to come.
Aug 02, 2022 01:23 AM IST
IND vs WI Live: SIX! Pooran is in the house
Short of a length from Avesh and Pooran just pulls it away over deep square leg. He had hit a four between deep point and third off the previous ball and so he is off to a flier.
Aug 02, 2022 01:15 AM IST
India vs West Indies: OUT! Mayers falls!
Pandya gets the breakthrough off the very first ball of the match! Fullish from Pandya, Mayers clips it aerially and it goes towards fine leg where Ashwin takes a few steps to his left and gobbles it up.
Mayers c Ashwin b Pandya, West Indies 46/1 in 6.1 overs
Aug 02, 2022 01:13 AM IST
India vs West Indies 2nd T20I: FOUR AND SIX!
Brandon King toying with Ashwin. First a slog sweep over short fine leg for four off the third ball. Ashwin flicks one in and this time King steps down the pitch to smash it over the bowler's head.
Aug 02, 2022 12:58 AM IST
India vs West Indies: West Indies 16/0 after 2 overs
Back to back fours off the second and third balls of the second over bowler by Arshdeep Singh. King has got off to quite a start here and he is on 13 off 7 at the end of that over.
Aug 02, 2022 12:51 AM IST
India vs West Indies 2nd T20I: FOUR! West Indies start the chase in style
Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowling the first over, Brandon King on strike with Kyle Mayers at the other end. Bhuvi sends it in short and wide first up and King capitalised on the width.
Aug 02, 2022 12:40 AM IST
India vs West Indies 2nd T20I live: IND all out for 138!
Sensational stuff this from the West Indies. Avesh Khan hit a six off the first ball of the last over bowled by Jason Holder but then just three runs off the next two before the middle stump gets uprooted. This is India's lowest total in a T20I played in the West Indies.
Aug 02, 2022 12:34 AM IST
IND vs WI 2nd T20I Live: GONE! Make that six for McCoy!
Best ever figures by a West Indies bowler in T20Is. Keeper appeals for a caught behind but McCoy is not very interested, umpire doesn't give either but Pooran takes the review. As it turns out, there was an edge and Bhuvneshwar Kumar goes.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar c Thomas b McCoy 1 (3), India 129/9 in 19 overs
Aug 02, 2022 12:30 AM IST
IND vs WI Live: GONE! Fifer for McCoy!
There goes Ashwin, the last player who could bat in this Indian lineup. Another Indian batter forced to hit against the breeze and perishing.
Ashwin c Smith b McCoy 10 (6), India 128/8 in 18.4 overs
Aug 02, 2022 12:27 AM IST
India vs West Indies: OUT! Karthik falls!
Well there goes India's hopes of reaching 150. It's that man McCoy again who strikes and he gets four.
Karthik c Joseph b McCoy 7 (13), India 127/7 in 18.1 overs
Aug 02, 2022 12:19 AM IST
India vs West Indies 2nd T20I: GONE!
That is the end for Jadeja, he tries to go big and holes out. No pace on the ball again, India have not had a boundary for a while and all of it leads to the wicket. Everything is down to Dinesh Karthik now.
Jadeja c Powell b McCoy 27 (30), India 115/6 in 16.3 overs
Aug 02, 2022 12:18 AM IST
India vs West Indies: Into the last 4 overs
We are now in Dinesh Karthik's hitting zone. He is on five off eight balls and Jadeja is on 27 off 29 and so India not really in a good place with both their batters having a strike rate less than 100.
Aug 02, 2022 12:06 AM IST
IND vs WI 2nd T20I Live: OUT! Pandya falls!
Pace off from Holder and Pandya absolutely hammers a pull. But he ends up hitting it straight towards deep midwicket where it initially bounces off Odean Smith's hands before settling in safely. Pandya is gone for a run a ball 31
Pandya c Smith b Holder 31 (31), India 104/5 in 13.4 overs
Aug 02, 2022 12:03 AM IST
India vs West Indies 2nd T20I live: IND 101/4 in 13 overs
Pandya is on 31 off 29 and Jadeja on 19 off as many. They have put up 42 off 40 balls. Surely they are now prioritising conserving wickets as they know that it's just Dinesh Karthik and the bowlers after this.
Aug 01, 2022 11:51 PM IST
IND vs WI 2nd T20I Live: SIX!
Jadeja uses his feet and sends the ball soaring over long on. Encouraging that for India, they are 84/4 after 11 overs.
Aug 01, 2022 11:48 PM IST
India vs West Indies 2nd T20I live: India 75/4 after 10 overs
Well it seems India's tactic is to get their top four to play like pinch hitters in the powerplay and then get the rest of the batters to be watchful and carry them to the 15th over. Might not be sustainable against teams in better touch than the West Indies. For now, Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja being far more watchful than any of their teammates thus far.
Aug 01, 2022 11:37 PM IST
IND vs WI 2nd T20I Live: GONE! Pant goes down swinging
Well Pant has been trying to hit the ball everywhere but this time, he falls. Full from Hosein and Pant skips down the track to try and go over midwicket. It was hit against the wind and falls into the hands of Odean Smith.
Pant c Smith b Hosein 24 (12), India 61/4 in 6.3 overs
Aug 01, 2022 11:34 PM IST
IND vs WI Live: End of powerplay, India 56/3
As was the case in the first T20I really, India have got off to a quick start but they are also losing wicket.
Aug 01, 2022 11:26 PM IST
India vs West Indies: OUT! Iyer falls now
Big slog from Shreyas Iyer and he edges it to the keeper, Alzarri Joseph gets his first wicket. Well India seem to be going ahead with their see ball, hit ball strategy.
Iyer c Thomas b Joseph 10 (11), India 40/3 in 4.2 overs
Aug 01, 2022 11:21 PM IST
India vs West Indies 2nd T20I: SIX! Typical Pant!
Back of a length at middle and angling away, Pant uses Smith's pace and laps it over short fine leg.
Aug 01, 2022 11:14 PM IST
India vs West Indies: SIX! Pant off the mark!
Pant whips away the second ball he aces and it flies over the boundary. This is a six-hitting ground and it shows. Fuller delivery outside off, Pant clears his front leg and sends it flying over fine leg.
Aug 01, 2022 11:13 PM IST
IND vs WI Live: OUT! McCoy strikes again!
A wicket off the first ball of his first over, a wicket off the first ball of his second over. Rishabh Pant may not officially have been the opener today but he is practically playing as an opener now.
Suryakumar Yadav c Thomas b McCoy 11 (6), 17/2 in 2.1 overs
Aug 01, 2022 11:10 PM IST
IND vs WI 2nd T20I Live: SIX! India are off
India had not scored a run for the first eight balls and then got off the mark with a six from Suryakumar Yadav. Shreyas Iyer then ended the second over with another six and that made it 17 from it.
Aug 01, 2022 11:03 PM IST
India vs West Indies 2nd T20I live: OUT! Rohit Sharma gone first ball!
Well how about that! The bounce completely surprises Rohit Sharma and he is off first ball! It has taken three hours for this match to start and West Indies have wasted no time in sending back the Indian captain. Back of a length ball on middle and leg and it takes off, Rohit fends away and it flies to Akeal Hosein at short third man.
Rohit Sharma c Hosein b McCoy 0 (1), India 0/1 in 0.1 overs
Aug 01, 2022 11:01 PM IST
India vs West Indies 2nd T20I: The players are out, Surya opens
It seems India are going to stick with this combination for this series at least. What is the intended end result of this, only they would know.
Aug 01, 2022 10:53 PM IST
India vs West Indies: SKY to continue as opener?
India surprised everyone when they sent out Suryakumar Yadav to open the innings with Rohit Sharma in the first T20I, just as it started to look like they had decided to give Rishabh Pant a go at that position. It will be interesting to see if Suryakumar continues in that role.
Aug 01, 2022 10:46 PM IST
India vs West Indies 2nd T20I: An extra pacer for India
So India bring in Avesh Khan for Ravi Bishnoi. The conditions were favouring spinners in the first T20I so this was probably expected but there are no more changes.
Aug 01, 2022 10:45 PM IST
India vs West Indies: What the captains said - Rohit Sharma
It was quite pleasing for us, the way we played first game. We stuck to our plans and executed it really well. It's another opportunity for us and we are looking to repeat what we did in the first one. We want the guys to be able to bat anywhere and don't want them to be batting in specific positions. We want the guys to be flexible, there are two ways to look at it depending on certain players. We probably read the pitch well in the first game and thought as a team we made the right call to go with three spinners. The dimensions are different here and wanted to get an extra seamer here. Bishnoi misses out unfortunately and Avesh Khan comes in. It's unfortunate that he misses out but we are trying whatever we can from the team's perspective.
Aug 01, 2022 10:44 PM IST
IND vs WI Live: What the captains said - Nicholas Pooran
We are going to have a bowl, wickets look nice and we will try and use our experience. We want to forget that game and believe in our process and execute our plans. Different conditions today and the guys are looking forward to whatever spin/seam attack they have. We have two changes. Keemo Paul and Brooks are out.

IND vs WI 2nd T20I Live: In case you are wondering why there are no score updates yet…
Just a reminder that this match has been delayed by a total of three hours. The delay was initially two but it has now gone up to three. The reason is not rains, indeed it seems to be quite a good day for cricket in Basseterre, but a delay in the arrival of “significant delays in crucial team luggage” arriving in St Kitts and Nevis.
Aug 01, 2022 09:56 PM IST
India vs West Indies 2nd T20I live: Logistical issues
Well this delay comes hot on the heels of news that visa issues has put a cloud of uncertainty on the fourth and fifth T20Is being played in Florida, United States. "Having the games in the Caribbean is not unlikely but efforts are being made to resolve the visa issue," Cricbuzz quoted a source in West Indies cricket as saying. "The initial information was that the players would be handed the US travel documents in St Kitts where the teams have arrived. But there's a chance that the players may have to travel back to Trinidad for the visa documents and from there to the US if they obtain the all-clear."
Aug 01, 2022 09:38 PM IST
India vs West Indies 2nd T20I: TOSS DELAYED!
Well technically we still are minutes away from the toss, its just that we are just under 60 minutes away from it. The match has been further delayed to a 11pm start and so toss is, for now, scheduled to take place at 10.30pm. We will keep updating you if there are any further delays of course.
Aug 01, 2022 09:31 PM IST
India vs West Indies: Minutes away from toss
As stated earlier, chasing is the more preferred option at this venue with the wickets here predominantly aiding the bowlers.
Aug 01, 2022 09:26 PM IST
IND vs WI Live: Rohit Sharma's winning streak
Since the end of the T20 World Cup, which is effectively the point when Rohit took over as India's full-time T20 captain, his team have lost just one out of 13 matches that they have played in the shortest format of the game.
Aug 01, 2022 09:19 PM IST
India vs West Indies: Weather
We have seen some problems with rain throughout this series but it doesn't look like that will be a problem today. Temperatures should be hovering around 30 degrees as well so a good day for cricket.
Aug 01, 2022 09:04 PM IST
India vs West Indies 2nd T20I: Akeal Hosein
He was probably the only positive that the West Indies could take from that first T20I. He had managed sensational figures of 1/14 and was seemingly popping up everywhere in the field, taking two sensational catches to dismiss Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant.
Aug 01, 2022 08:56 PM IST
India vs West Indies 2nd T20I live: India's T20I resurgence
There were murmurs of India falling behind in the shortest format of the game after their 2021 T20 World Cup debacle. But India have been on quite a run since the end of that tournament. They have dominated their opponents at home and away from home.
Aug 01, 2022 08:39 PM IST
IND vs WI 2nd T20I Live: How West Indies collapsed
They may no longer have the superstars who had made them a two-time T20 World Cup winning side but the West Indies still consist of players who are stars on their own in T20 leagues around the world. However, they all, particularly the batters, fell without making much of an impact. Nicholas Pooran, Rovman Powell and Shimron Hetmyer were all star batters for their IPL franchises but only Pooran managed a strike rate above 100 in the first T20I.
Aug 01, 2022 08:34 PM IST
IND vs WI Live: Changes in spin department for India?
India had gone for Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin in the first T20I. Remains to be seen if they will stick with that lineup of if they will look to bring in Kuldeep Yadav or Axar Patel.
Aug 01, 2022 08:24 PM IST
India vs West Indies: Warner Park
West Indies first Test and ODI at this venue was against India back in 2006. Chasing is the more preferred option at this venue with the wickets here predominantly aiding the bowlers. West Indies have won six and lost two of the matches they have played at this venue but that won't really matter too much considering how far behind they have looked compared to India throughout this tour.
Aug 01, 2022 08:14 PM IST
India vs West Indies 2nd T20I: Baggage delay
“No kits in St Kitts?” quips Gaurav Kapoor in a tweet which is sure to go viral now. Cricket West Indies was quick to put their hands up in their statement by saying that it was due to “circumstances beyond CWI's control”. We don't know the specifics of the incident and if it was a case of both teams' baggage arriving late or just one of them.
Aug 01, 2022 08:06 PM IST
India vs West Indies 2nd T20I live: Hello and welcome!
We should have got underway with the match by now but issues in the arrival of the two teams' luggage in St Kitts and Nevis has led to the game being postponed by two hours. "Due to circumstances beyond CWI's control, there have been significant delays in crucial team luggage arriving into St Kitts from Trinidad. As a result, today's match T20 match is due to start at 12:30 pm (11:30am Jamaica/10pm India). CWI regrets any inconvenience caused to our valued fans, sponsors, broadcast partners and all other stakeholders," said CWI in a statement. Well, Indian fans will be hoping that they still get to see their team dominating their opponents, as was the case in the first T20I.
