10.41pm That's that from us. Join us for the final game tomorrow, with everything on the line. This is Debayan Sen, bidding you farewell on behalf of Saurabh Somani and Thilak Gowda

Rashid Khan: "The dew doesn't change much, but we have a world-class bowling and we can defend 140+. If you look at the first game, when they had a good start, it's the kind of wicket, where the batsmen will hit some runs, but sometimes they will struggle. Our plan was to get to 140+ and then defend this. (On Sunday) This was a much-needed win for us. First win on this tour, and we have some great momentum for the final, and that's what we need to do."

Karim Janat is the player of the match. Speaks to the broadcasters through Rashid Khan: "First of all, thanks to the crowd for being here and supporting us. I was outside as the 12th man, and that was the best opportunity for me to learn what should be the line and plans. I had a plan in mind and that's what I did. When batting,I got an idea of what is the right line and length. I was trying to hit the good length area, and on this wicket, change of pace is a good weapon to have."

Kieron Pollard speaks at the presentation: "At the halfway stage, we were happy with 147. Their batsmen came hard at us, but we came back well, especially Kesrick. We cannot fault the bowlers. We didn't get a good start in the Powerplay, and we lost wickets every time we were trying to be aggressive. You know what I won't speak about (the umpiring) but it is what it is. We just have 24 hours to wrong the rights, and hopefully we come back and do those things right tomorrow. 1-1 is a virtual final tomorrow, and you'd want to see how the guys react tomorrow. Happy times for us in terms of how we have played through this series. We need to have conversations on what to improve on for tomorrow."

Sudheer: "Someone rightly predicted Ramdin innings would be crucial for this match outcome. And indeed it is!!"

Morvin Willliam: "Where is Pooran when Windies need him."

10.27pm What a performance this has been from Afghanistan. They took the brave call of batting first and it would seem they read this pitch to perfection. Got a brisk start, but then wound up scoring about 20 runs short of what the start had promised. However, their bowlers clearly took some good notes on what needs to be done on this pitch, and their slower balls and lengths bowled helped pick wickets repeatedly. Shimron Hetmyer was the first of Karim Janat's five victims, and admittedly got a stinker of a leg-before decision against him, with the ball having pitched well outside leg. But Afghanistan played this smartly, and will return in a few hours from now to compete for the T20I series title!

Gulbadin Naib to Ramdin, 1 run, fuller ball, straight, and he plays this towards short mid-wicket, and Afghanistan have won!

Gulbadin Naib to Walsh, OUT, length, slower ball, and he swings this across the line, and Rashid Khan takes it at the deep mid-wicket fence! Decent contact from Walsh, as he finally latches on to the slower one, but sends this higher than far enough, and Rashid calls early to take this ahead of the man at long on. Naib almost gets into his bodybuilder pose, with arms crossed, and then signals to Walsh that hitting him across the line for six was just not on

Naib smiles, in appreciation of his finishing skills, one would imagine

Gulbadin Naib to Walsh, no run, fuller, still wide outside off, and Walsh has a mighty swing at it. Nowhere near the ball

Gulbadin Naib to Walsh, 1 wide, slower ball, outside off. A bit too wide outside off, and called a wide

Changes his angle

These are the best figures in T20Is against West Indies, though. Beats Imad Wasim to that landmark

19.3
1
Gulbadin Naib to Ramdin, 1 run, slower, short ball, and he swings this again in the same direction. Takes more of the edge and goes towards long leg as a result. One bounce to the fielder stationed there

Gulbadin Naib to Ramdin, FOUR runs, short, and he moves across the crease and gets it down towards fine leg. No protection there for Naib

Zalmi kakar: "Is jannat the first Afghan player to take a fifer in T20i?" --- No, he's the third. Here's the full list
