    7.2 lbw! Rohit was looking to turn the ball on the leg side but he was caught on the crease in front of the stumps as Badree slid one on with the arm, that looked pretty good at first glance. It hit the back pad. Gone. West Indies have their first wicket ... but that means ... 62/1
    15.3 caught right on the edge of the midwicket boundary! Bravo is the catcher and he turns to the fans and does his champion celebration. It was a short ball and Rahane pulled it straight to the fielder, he hit it with the bottom of his bat 128/2

    13.1 would you believe it? He has struck first ball! Can this man do no wrong on the field? The ball was short and it skidded on to Charles who went back and played a flat-batted pull of sorts, he lofted it straight to Rohit, who ran in from long off to break the stand. Incredible. Very ordinary ball, but clearly the force is with Kohli tonight 116/3
    1.1 and that may be why! Bowled him! A low full toss, angling across the left-hander from over the wicket and swinging back in a touch, Gayle plays across the line and plays all around it, the ball crashes into the base of off stump and Bumrah wheels away in ecstatic celebration as the Wankhede roars. How that ball dipped on Gayle, how it bent back into him. 6/1
    2.6 that is lousy batting, I'm afraid, Samuels has backed away outside leg, away from the angle of the delivery across him and then tried to close the face of the bat, the ball lobs up tamely off the leading edge and is caught at cover, such a tame dismissal, he was in no position to play any sort of shot 19/2

Match Notes

  • Simmons' four innings silence the Mumbai madness

    At one stage you could barely hear yourself think, and then you could barely hear anything as Johnson Charles, Lendl Simmons and Andre Russell crashed the party

  • Big-hitting overpowers Kohli's scampering

    Regardless of how wet the ball became, India's self-inflicted errors were crucial as they could not halt West Indies' power-packed line-up

  • West Indies power-hit their way to World T20 final

    A total of 192 was about par on a batting-friendly Wankhede, and it was set up by a Virat Kohli masterclass. But West Indies' power hitters bulldozed their way through it to their second World T2

  • Yuvraj's injury leaves India with Pandey v Negi dilemma
