6:32pm And that is all! Thank you for joining us. See you soon.

Kohli: Good outing with the bat. Exactly why we wanted to bat first if you saw the latter half of West Indies' innings. I think the rain helped them in the middle, otherwise it would have been even tougher to bat.

[Middle overs] It was important to string as many dot balls as possible. The ball got really wet every time it went out into the outfield. It was difficult to grip. We thought it was a tricky situation if we didn't get wickets there. It was just about staying there, getting one wicket and put pressure.

Kuldeep [is getting into the XI] purely because of the number of left handers. It tempts you to go with the chinaman more than the legspinner and with Jadeja is gives us more depth with the bat as well.

Shreyas is a confident guy, he's got the right attitude. Good hands. He made it easier for me.

Virat Kohli is the Man of the Match.

Holder: Extremely disappointed. We had the game in our hand. We bowled well to come back in the end. The wickets in the end really cost us. We've got to take responsibility. One of the main things is when you get in, you've got to go deep. I must commend the bowlers. It was very hot and humid, tough conditions to bowl. We've definitely got to take responsibility and ownership as batters.

6:13pm Yet again, for West Indies. We've seen that expression on Holder's face before. Not long ago, the required rate was just above six an over and they had wickets in hand. And then, inside two overs, everything turned. Bhuvneshwar with Pooran's wicket, and then a stunning catch to remove Chase. Induced a false shot from Brathwaite the next over too, and that was where it was all given away. India were feeling it a little - overthrows, misfields, angry captain. Because West Indies were in it for a long time. But they've pulled through, and it's another impressive win for them.

Shami to Thomas, OUT

given! Shami goes around the wicket, fires it in at middle stump. Oshane looks to block and is trapped right in front of the stumps. Was there bat on it? Hard to tell. No review though. That is that

Mark: "Getting just a bit one-sided." --- You might be onto something.

Shami to Cottrell, OUT

holds on! Jadeja running backwards from backward point, towards third man, who is also sprinting in. Short ball in the corridor, looks to pull and slices it. Jadeja keeps his eyes on it looking over his shoulder. Fumbles after getting his hands on it, but holds on
