India vs West Indies 2nd T20 Highlights: Lucknow was treated to a Rohit Sharma special in its first international cricket match in over two decades. The Indian captain scored his fourth T20I century off just 58 balls and ended the innings unbeaten on 111. He now has the most tons in T20 International cricket, surpassing New Zealand’s Colin Munro. West Indies never got going in their chase. A late surge by Carlos Brathwaite and Keemo Paul helped them cross over into three figures and end the innings on a respectable total.

India vs West Indies 2nd T20 Highlights:

22:47 (IST)06 Nov 2018
Rohit Sharma

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.

India win by a mammoth 71 runs and seal another series win. They lead 2-0 in the three-match series. 

22:18 (IST)06 Nov 2018
GONE! Paul c Sharma b Kumar West Indies 114/8

Another one! Rohit Sharma just can't keep himself out of the game today. Paul hits it straight to him at mid-off.

GONE! Paul c Sharma b Kumar West Indies 114/8

Another one! Rohit Sharma just can't keep himself out of the game today. Paul hits it straight to him at mid-off. 

22:13 (IST)06 Nov 2018
West Indies 112/7 after 18 overs

West Indies do surpass Rohit Sharma's total. Two consecutive sixes by Paul and a six by Brathwaite off the last ball means that the 18th over has gone for 19 runs. 

22:11 (IST)06 Nov 2018
West Indies 93/7 off 17

In case you are wondering, they need just 103 runs to win off 18 balls. Meanwhile, Keemo Paul has reviewed a decison that went against him. It is unclear whether it was an LBW or a caught out. Turns out to be neither as the decision is overturned. 

22:06 (IST)06 Nov 2018
West Indies 88/7 off 16 overs

West Indies are 23 runs behind Rohit Sharma at the moment and it won't be a surprise if they never reach his total. This has been quite a pathetic performance from the visitors. The only time they looked to be able to provide a challenge for India was in the first three overs of the match. 

21:58 (IST)06 Nov 2018
RUN OUT! Allen run out Pandya, West Indies 81/7

Pandya rushes to his left, picks up the ball and a direct hit at the striker's end. West Indies were never in this game, were they? 

21:56 (IST)06 Nov 2018
GONE! Ramdin c Rohit b Bhuvneshwar, West Indies 81/6

Another catch at slips and another one bites the dust. India are lining up a big win here. 

21:53 (IST)06 Nov 2018
West Indies 79/5 after 13 overs

Off the eight runs scored in this over, Four came because Krunal Pandya caught everyone by surprise by bowling a bouncer!. Karthik did his best to reach it from a crouching position but runs behind to the boundary anyway. 

21:46 (IST)06 Nov 2018
West Indies 71/5 after 12 overs

Just one run off that over and an appeal for a stumping off the last ball. The required rate has now crept up above 12 for West Indies.

Just one run off that over and an appeal for a stumping off the last ball. The required rate has now crept up above 12 for West Indies. 

21:42 (IST)06 Nov 2018
GONE! Pollard c&b Bumrah, West Indies 68/5

Top edge that goes high up in the air but covers almost no distance, Bumrah comes all the way near Pollard to take the catch and the latter raised his hand just as the ball fell into his Mumbai Indians teammates' hands. Wonder what Pollard was trying to do there. 

21:38 (IST)06 Nov 2018
West Indies 67/4 after 10 overs

India were 83/0 in this period of their innings. The hosts are taking regular wickets and that is taking a toll in West Indies. Kieron Pollard and Dinesh Ramdin are in the middle, Bumrah with the ball.

21:30 (IST)06 Nov 2018
GONE! Nicholas Pooran b Kuldeep, West Indies 52/4

Breaks back in sharply and Pooran misses it, the ball crashes on to the stumps. Safe to say now that West Indies are falling apart. 

21:29 (IST)06 Nov 2018
OUT! Darren Bravo c Rohit b Kuldeep, West Indies 52/4

What a catch! Rohit can't do anything wrong today. A fast-travelling ball and the Indian captain, standing at slips had to stretch both his hands to take that blinder.

OUT! Darren Bravo c Rohit b Kuldeep, West Indies 52/4

What a catch! Rohit can't do anything wrong today. A fast-travelling ball and the Indian captain, standing at slips had to stretch both his hands to take that blinder.

21:17 (IST)06 Nov 2018
GONE! Shimron Hetmyer c Dhawan b Ahmed West Indies 33/2

Rohit Sharma stick with Ahmed and gives him a third over to bowl despite the fact that he was beaten around by Hetmyer in his previous over and what a response he has got. But this is more down to poor shot selection from Hetmyer as he holes out at long on. 

21:06 (IST)06 Nov 2018
West Indies 13/1 after 3 overs

Hetmyer and Darren Bravo in the middle for the Windies. Bravo had an exceptional season in the Carribean Premier League. Can he transfer his form to Lucknow?

India vs West Indies Live Cricket Score 2nd T20 Live Streaming: The misery has seemed never-ending for the West Indies and India would look to ensure that the script doesn't change when the two sides clash in the second Twenty20 International here on Tuesday. India's four-match T20 losing streak against the West Indies ended on Sunday in Kolkata. And in the penultimate game of what has been a disastrous tour for the visitors, India would be favourites to lock the series in their favour. India's last win against the West Indies before Sunday came way back on March 23, 2014 in the World T20 in Bangladesh. With the win at the Eden Gardens, India managed to better their head-to-head record against the reigning world T20 champions to 5-3 now from nine exchanges between 2009 and 2017.
