10.50pm Hope y'all enjoyed this game as much as we did bringing it to you. I'll leave you with Sid Monga's report. Goodbye and cheers

10.30pm That is that. India wrap up the T20I series 2-0, with one game to go in Chennai. West Indies will return home empty-handed. Rohit Sharma let the way for India with a dazzling century - his fourth in T20Is - in front of a sell-out crowd. No batsman has hit more T20I hundreds than him. Useful contributions from Dhawan and Rahul propelled India's total to 195 for 2. West Indies' batting line-up unravelled again, this time under scoreboard pressure. They barely managed to bat out 20 overs. No specialist openers in their T20I roster. No clarity from their batsmen in what is perhaps their most preferred format. Stick around for the presentations.

Angelo: "Windies have scored 13 Runs more that Rohit - Hit Man, Rohit's Diwali gift to INDIA "

Brathwaite: Chasing 195 was always an uphill task but a few positives, with Allen bowling well. Not to look at too many negatives and get away from this game. India batted well, even at the first stage we thought we were one or two wickets away from restricting them to 160-170. We've got a young group of guys and we want to appreciate the small good things they did. We did not come with an out-and-out opener and we are still looking for the opener. We have to work with the players on tour and we are trying until the theory works out.

Rohit, also Man of the Match: It was a new pitch, so we wanted to understand how the wicket is behaving. Hence, we took so much time to understand what the pitch is doing. And we carried on from there. Whenever you get opportunity, you try and do well. Everyone will go home smiling. That's what we play for. Glad we could win the game and win the series. You know Dhawan's natural instinct is to put pressure on the bowlers, but we decided to take our time. The partnership at the top was very important.120-plus stand was crucial and KL finished off well. Bumrah has been our premier bowler for us and the way we use him in T20s is different to ODIs. Khaleel wanted the new ball and he initially looks to swing it and he has taken up the challenge well. And when he bowls that kind of a spell upfront that helps us. This is a wonderful stadium - one of the best we've played in. Just want to thank the crowd for coming out and supporting us in huge numbers.

Bumrah to Thomas, no run, Thomas ventures down the track, Bumrah bangs another short ball, 142kph, gets it to soar over Thomas. He falls over. DK hits the stumps, but Thomas makes his ground and WI avoid the ignominy of being dismissed

Bumrah to Thomas, FOUR runs, 142kph from Bumrah. Short and outside off, Thomas clears his front leg and utterly batters it past the bowler. So, he can bat as well?

Bumrah to Thomas, FOUR runs, really full on the pads, stylishly flicked away, although off the back foot, through midwicket. That looked so easy on the eye

Bumrah to Thomas, no run, yorker angling across the left-hander. Thomas is too late in trying to connect with it and is beaten

karthik: "So Bhuvi ends up with much better figures than Kuldeep although it is Kuldeep who derailed the chase with important strikes and 3 misery overs. There should be a way for ppl to recognize if top order wickets were taken. May be add an asterisk next to wickets to differentiate top/middle order wickets vs tailenders" ---- Eh, why are you complicating an already over-complicated game...

Bumrah to Pierre, OUT, pushing at a good length ball - done in by the lack of pace - and it goes straight back to Bumrah who reacts well and picks up his second caught and bowled of the match
