Scorer: Ranjith P | Commentator: @saurabh_42

2.35pm: A damp end, but the second T20I had its moments. Do join us for the third game - will India rotate players now that the series is sealed? We'll find out. Till then, this is Saurabh Somani, signing off on behalf of Shashank and Ranjith.

Kohli: Had a really clinical game. The pitch was always going to be good to bat on first half. We set up a good foundation. Good finish to get to 165, the pitch slowed down considerably in the second half of our innings. Winning the first two games always gives you a chance to give an opportunity to a few guys. Having said that, the idea is always to win. The way Washington has bowled against guys who come hard at the ball - he's been outstanding. The composure he's shown after being out for so long. He's going to be a big factor. All in all he's executing what he wants to perfectly at the moment.

Krunal Pandya is the Man of the Match.

Brathwaite: I didn't think it went wrong to be fair. Think we had a solid enough base, so we still backed ourselvesto get 70 odd. But very very well played to Rovman to get us into that situation. I give the batting a bit more credit than yesterday. With the total we figured our line up is flexible enough, with guys like Pollard at the end to send Rovman up. Batting-wise we were a lot closer to where we want to be. In Guyana we hope to get consistency.

2.25pm: It's officially over, so India have won by 22 runs via DLS. The par score for West Indies was 120, and they were 98. India therefore also seal the series at the first opportunity. Rohit led the batting charge, Krunal played a valuable cameo at the end, and then came back to be the star with the ball for India. For West Indies, Rovman Powell's attacking knock was an encouraging sign.

Aleem: "I may be uninformed or misinformed but I read somewhere Russell was injured and not available for first two T20s. But he is right now playing in GT20. How? " You are not misinformed Aleem, Dre Russ is indeed playing in the GT20, right at this very moment. Here's proof.

2.15 pm: No happy weather updates yet because PDP (ie Peter Della Penna for those asking) tells me there's rain about at the stadium - but there is some happy reading. "When he goes out to bat it's almost like he's in a trance-like state" - who is Steve Waugh talking about? Hint, hint: he shares a name, and several other achievements, with the man.

1.50 pm: While we're waiting, why not have a gander at this heart-warming story by PDP: how Krunal Pandya's childhood friend watched Virat Kohli bat on his former ground.

Ayaz sait: "What's the cutoff time" - PDP tells me that they can lose an hour of play before they start cutting overs. Not that there are many overs to cut... And for clarification, "This is a Broward County/Florida state regulation for crowd and player safety. The umpires/match officials are mandated to take the players off once the lightning alarm is triggered, whether it is high school level sports or professional/international events."

1.40 pm: The DLS par score is 120, so if there is no further play, India will have sealed the series.

1.37 pm: They are walking off. It's not started raining yet, but they are going off for lightning warning. This is not an uncommon occurrence at this venue, say the commentators on air. Covers coming on the ground and there might be a few drops of rain about too.

Update from PDP: Lightning strikes have gotten too close to the ground, so they've taken players off due to lightning warning. They've told all the fans to evacuate the stadium if they're not in covered seating areas. It's been striking lightning north of the ground for the past 10 minutes, but finally got close enough to trigger the lightning detection system.

Pandya to Pollard, 2 runs, flat and outside off, misfield by Saini at cover inside the circle allows the push to go through

Pandya to Hetmyer, 1 run, flayed off the back foot, uppishly over cover but there is a man there and they can only get one

Pandya to Hetmyer, no run, smart bowling, saw him back away and pushed it well wide of off, but within the tram lines. Hetmyer doesn't connect

Jadeja to Pollard, no run, turned to short fine, ends up as a tight over after that first-ball four

Jadeja to Hetmyer, 1 run, and now Kohli has a near-miss! Too short and pulled, but Kohli is at midwicket, and he manages to stop the ball but it bounces before he gets to it, going sideways

Jadeja to Pollard, 1 run, oooh, that just eludes a diving Jadeja. Stopped a bit and turned, Pollard wanted to punch, ends up hitting uppishly to Jadeja's left, and to long-off eventually. Just past his finger tips
