FOUR! Deepak Chahar to Nicholas Pooran. Slower ball short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Pooran seals things with a rambunctious swat and the celebrations begin in the West Indies dugout.

West Indies have beaten India by 8 wickets in Thiruvananthapuram to level the T20I series, chasing 171 with nine deliveries to spare. Lendl Simmons and Evin Lewis laid the platform with a mature opening stand of 73 and the former kicked on to register a fine half century. That allowed explosive left-handers Shimron Hetmyer and Nicholas Pooran to play freely and charge to the target with ease in the end. India will regret a couple of dropped catches that ended up costing them dearly, despite a spectacular grab by captain Virat Kohli on the rope. Earlier in the day Shivam Dube smashed a maiden T20I fifty, showing impressive ability to get used to the slow surface before teeing off. In the end their total of 170/7 fell short of what was required as the dew came into effect and the tourists took advantage. That means we are set up for a thrilling conclusion to the series in Mumbai on Tuesday.
