Full commentary

Winning captain Hardik Pandya: Complete performance, absolutely can't get better than us. Suryakumar put us 30 runs forward. After that the bowlers were very clinical. Being aggressive does not mean you take every ball on, its about body language. Looking at all those, we ticked all those boxes, especially with the water due to the rain. It was quite difficult to bowl but they stuck to their plans. [Hooda bowling] Sixth bowler, absolutely. I have bowled lots of times but going forward I want a number of more bowling opportunities. Not always that bowlers will have their day but if you give them game time.... it could've gone another way also. But today the sixth bowler Deepak stopped the runs and those two overs changed the game and put them under pressure. I expect them to be professional, that they are. Just give them the opportunity to give them support. People were backing each other, that's what I am looking for. [Changes for third T20I?] Don't know, we'll see the wicket. I'd love to give everyone an opportunity but we'll ask the bowlers if they need rest, we'll see at the ground.

Losing captain Williamson: "It was not our best effort, have to say that. That was one of the best knocks I have ever seen. Some of those shots I have never seen. That was next level. They were outstanding and we weren't up to the task. It was frustrating but keeps pointing back to Suryakumar and the way he went about. It was frustrating that we kept losing wickets. T20 can be like that sometimes.

The FIFA World Cup 2022 starts today! You may know the players and the plot, but what you desperately need is just one bigger piece that brings it all together. So welcome to ESPN's totally necessary and extremely serious preview.

Suryakumar is the Player of the Match: The plan was clear when we came to bat. The plan was for me to bat till the end to reach par score of 170. Secret I feel for such kind of format you have to have good intent irrespective of situation. Great feeling coming here and having a full game irrespective of the conditions.

Hooda to Milne, OUT

its not a hat-trick but it is a third wicket for sure. Full ball outside off. He goes for an expansive loft over the off side. But all he can do is mistime the shot. Arshdeep at long off seals the deal, Hooda finishes with a four-for, and India seal a massive convincing win.

Hooda to Ferguson, 1 run

that's a single for Ferguson

Hooda to Southee, OUT

Hooda on a hat-trick! Good length ball outside off stump. Southee moves to the off side to try and slog it, and why not really, with nothing much to lose. But the shot is sliced, and it flies high up over the off side. Point is running in, Pant also calls for the catch and the gloveman seals the deal.

Hooda to Sodhi, OUT

good length ball, but he pushes it a bit wider. Sodhi came down with his dancing shoes on for an expansive shot, but the ball goes to Pant. Pant teases Sodhi for a short moment before whipping the bails off.
