SCORE: WEST INDIES - 196/3 West Indies win by 7 wickets.

END of MATCH

An abysmal outing peppered with brain fades from one and all.. Right from Pandya's and Jadeja's buffet of bad balls, to getting Kohli to bowl the last over, to the no balls that handed West Indies a few reprieves, to letting them off the hook after having them on the mat in the powerplay, India have in many ways ejected themselves from the WT20, undoing the good work done with the bat by Kohli, Rohit, and Rahane... Though this doesn't take away from the Windies' performance, with Simmons, Charles and Russell doing what needed to be done for them, apart from putting in their miles during their outing with the ball.. WELL DONE, WEST INDIES... On that note, we bid adieu and take your leave.. Thanks for logging in and following our updates...

WEST INDIES ARE IN THE WT20 FINAL....

19.4 Overs - SIX... IT'S OVER FOR INDIA.. A slow full-toss, and Russell has deposited Kohli many, many rows back over mid wicket...

19.3 Overs - FOUR.. It doesn't matter if it's an edge, Russell's power is enough to carry the ball through square leg...

19.2 Overs - DOT BALL... Piched up leg cutter, and Russell mises it...

19.1 Overs - Full and on the pads, Simmons dabs it to midwicket for a single..Huge gamble this, by India...

VIRAT KOHLI HAS THE BALL...Could easily backfire for India...

19 Overs - FOUR.... Russell again.. Jadeja fires it in full, and the giant goes down on his knees and smears it over extra cover...

18.5 Overs - SIX... More silence at the Wankhede... Russell gives it a wallop and three quarters... The bails sails high over long off...12 off 7 now...

18.4 Overs - Two runs off three balls.. The Lord has delivered so far with his darts outside off stump...

20 off 12 with 7 wickets.. Looking a bit bleak for India...

18.0 Overs - FOUR... All the good that was done with the first three balls of Bumrah has now been undone... Another straight-batted swipe from Simmons, and the edges flies over short third man...

Thought for the day..
