    INDIA WIN! And that ladies and gentlemen is the match. Mohammed Shami makes quick work of the tail and seal the match. West Indies bowled out for 210. India win by 59 runs. They go 1-0 ahead.

  • 3:46 AM IST

    GONE! Ravindra Jadeja now into the action. He gets his first wicket with Carlos Brathwaite edging him to short third man. And just as we type this. Bhuvneshwar picks up his fourth to put West Indies in further disarray.

  • 3:45 AM IST

    What a spell from Bhuvneshwar Kumar! He takes out Pooran and Chase in a span of three balls to bring India right back into the game.

  • 3:02 AM IST

    Nicholas Pooran keeps West Indies alive: He’s moved to 42 off 51 with four boundaries and a six and as the game progresses into its final 10 overs, he’s beginning to do things. An eventful over from Mohammed Shami gets West Indies 10 runs. They need another 92 off 72 balls.

  • 2:37 AM IST

    Got him! India get the big breakthrough with an equally big wicket for Evin Lewis. Kuldeep Yadav has been a bit expensive but he gets his second wicket here. West Indies 152/4 in the 29th over.

  • 2:16 AM IST

    FIFTY for Evin Lewis off 66 balls. It’s been a quiet knock from him but he’s done well to bat on with a bad calf. West Indies 119/3 in the 23rd over. It’s his first half-century in ODIs in the Caribbean. India are racing through the overs – an average of 45 seconds per over by their spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Kedar Jadhav. This is a crucial partnership for the West Indies. Nicholas Pooran and Lewis have added 35 off 32.

  • 1:59 AM IST

    OUT! West Indies 92 for 3. Shimron Hetmyer is gutted. A half-tracker from Kuldeep Yadav, and Hetmyer rocks on to the backfoot to bring out the pull shot. But he’s beaten by the pace. It was almost a flipper by Kuldeep and Hetmyer top edges for his RCB skipper Virat Kohli to complete the catch. He cannot believe it

  • 1:52 AM IST

    West Indies have been quote positive upon resumption, especially Shimron Hetmyer. A couple of spanking boundaries and in that last over from Shami gets him and West Indies going. Evin Lewis continues to struggle a bit but is managing to bat on. West Indies 89/2 in 17.1 overs.

  • 1:26 AM IST

    Play to resume in 10 mins. This will now be a 40-over contest and the target has been revised to 270. But the more important number here is 98, because that is what West Indies need to score by the 20th over to ensure they win if rain is to intervene again and result in no further play.

  • 1:13 AM IST

    UPDATE: Ah, this looks promising. The rain has stopped and the groundsmen are working again. The umpires are out and we should have an update regarding the resumption time.

  • 12:56 AM IST

    Oh uh. The heavens have opened up again and the second spell is quite strong. The stumps are down, umpires and players are off and the covers on. West Indies are 55/2 in their chase of 280.

  • 12:51 AM IST

    OUT! West Indies 52/2 in the 13th over. Chopped on, Khaleel bowls in short and wide. Hope went up on his toes but inside edged on to his stumps. He looks up towards the heavens. Khaleel is ecstatic. India strike for a second time. WI lose two in quick succession.

  • 12:40 AM IST

    Spoke too soon. There will be no Chris Gayle special today in Trinidad as he falls LBW to Bhuvneshwar Kumar. It always looked plumb but Gayle still referred it. THREE REDS and that’s the end of that for Gayle in his 300th ODI. West Indies 45/1

  • 12:32 AM IST

    Gayle, West Indies’ ODI King: With a single down to third man, Chris Gayle becomes West Indies’ leading run-getter in ODIs. He is now on 10349 runs. Next in line are Lara (10348), Shivnarine Chanderpaul (8778), Desmond Haynes (8648), Viv Richards (6721) and Richie Richardson (6248)

  • 12:15 AM IST

    Evin Lewis is down on the ground, getting some treatment on what seems like his hamstring. He has been limping and grimacing in pain ever since he pulled that six. Ankle maybe? Or the calf? We’re not sure, but he’s up for now.

  • 12:08 AM IST

    Five gone, and West Indies have began cautiously. No risks, no flashy strokes. Just some watchful batting. They are 20 without loss. Evin Lewis smokes a pull over deep square leg. India’s first extras are five wides, a slower ball beating Rishabh Pant down leg.

  • 11:48 PM IST

    Time for the second innings. Who’s psyched? What about the ones in India right now? After Virat Kohli, here is a chance to watch Chris Gayle bat in his 300th ODI. He’s out there with Evin Lewis. Will he tee off early?

  • 11:29 PM IST

    End of the first innings. India finish on 279/7, a total they will not be too pleased with considering the platform Kohli and Iyer had given them. Strong comeback by West Indies in the final ten overs, and especially after the rain interval to give away just 43 runs in the last eight overs. Can West Indies chase this down? If they do, it will be their highest successful chase in Trinidad

  • 11:02 PM IST

    India lose steam after resumption. Shreyas Iyer tonked one over long on for a huge six but was cleaned up by Jason Holder. Kedar Jadhav was the next to go, run-out trying to sneak a single. Ravindra Jadeja walks out. Can he get India to 280?

  • 10:34 PM IST

    Great news, all! The covers are off and we are going to have an early resumption. And just as we type this, the players are out. These groundsmen have done a terrific job in ensuring that play is up and running without much time lost.

  • 10:16 PM IST

    PLAY INTERRUPTED! After 42.2 overs of bright and clear skies, it’s started to rain in Trinidad. And it’s heavy enough to force the teams off the ground. India 233/4 in 42.2 overs. Plenty of blue still visible in the sky so hopefully, it shouldn’t be a lengthy delay.

  • 10:09 PM IST

    OUT! Having batted for almost 42 overs in such humid conditions, a tired shot from Kohli brings an end to his innings. Brathwaite took the pace off the bowl and Kohli top edged to perish at long on. End of a fine knock. India 226/4; a little over 8 over remain.

  • 10:03 PM IST

    Fifty for Shreyas Iyer. Oh, this is probably bigger than Kohli’s century. He gets there at a strike rate of over a 100, off 49 balls. Before the match, he sought flexibility in the middle order and Iyer has made the most of it. He was pushed a spot down to No. 5 but has responded emphatically. Been a while since we saw an innings like this. Hard-working in such testing hot conditions.

  • 9:48 PM IST

    THERE YOU HAVE IT! ODI century No. 42 for India’s run-machine, their captain, Virat Kohli, off 112 balls. His first in 12 innings. India motoring along at 191/3 in 37.1 overs

  • 9:33 PM IST

    Holder goes full and WHACK! Kohli goes straight and over mid off. He is motoring towards his 42nd ODI century. It’s been a while since we’ve seen it. It last happened in March against Australia. Iyer is giving him wonderful company. India 171 for 3 in 34 overs.

  • 9:13 PM IST

    30 overs gone and India are 143/3. India marching along steadily. Shreyas Iyer at No. 5 is proving to be a good tactic so far. He’s moved briskly to 24 off 22 with three boundaries including a late upper cut over the keeper. Kohli spoils Chase’ last over with a boundary down the ground, but the offspinner manages to churn out a tidy 1/37.

  • 8:47 PM IST

    BOWLED HIM! The ploy to send Pant at No. 4 doesn’t work. Worked up by a slower length ball from Barlos Brathwaite. Plays a lose pull/whip and misses the ball. TIMBER. India lose their third wicket for 101.

  • 8:46 PM IST

    100 up for India in 22 overs: Roston Chase is in the middle of a terrific spell. He’s given 20 runs in six overs including 10 straight dot balls to Rishabh Pant.

  • 8:21 PM IST

    Kohli gets fifty, Chase gets Rohit: Ah! The last two overs have been quote eventful. First, Virat Kohli, with a deft cut next to the keeper brought up his 55th ODI half-century off 57 balls. But shortly after, West Indies’ wait for a wicket ended. India 76 for 2 in the 16th over. Rohit Sharma went down the wicket and miscued a lofted shot to get out. You could sense it was coming. He wasn’t getting much strike.

  • 7:53 PM IST

    50 up for India: Kohli and Rohit have led a brilliant recovery for India to bring up the 50 and also the half-century partnership of their own. Kohli looks in imperious touch. His silken wrist work has been the highlight so far. The way he has flicked repeatedly for boundaries has been wonderful to watch. Rohit a little subdued at 9 off 20.

India vs West Indies live cricket score: Kohli ton, Bhuvneshwar’s four wickets star as India beat West Indies by 59 runs (DLS)

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the 2nd ODI between India and West Indies Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad on Sunday.

IND v WI MATCH PREVIEW

It was supposed to herald a new four-year cycle for the teams post World Cup 2019, but rain ensured it wasn’t to be. The first ODI between India and West Indies was abandoned after just 13 overs in Guyana. On paper, it was to be the three-match series opener but due to the little game time either side managed from the washed out first ODI, they will look forward to Trinidad hoping to get things finally underway, starting a long journey towards shaping up themselves for the next ODI World Cup.
