India will have to bounce back to win the three-match T20 International Series against West Indies when the two sides meet in the do-or-die finale on Wednesday. The onus will be on the hosts to shrug off the defeat in the second match where they were let down by their own inadequacies. The visitors on the other hand will look to stay resolute and keep the winning momentum. After Virat Kohli's magical innings in the opener in Hyderabad gave India the lead, two-time world champions West Indies turned on the style in the second T20I in Thiruvananthapuram. With the series locked at 1-1, the third match is expected to an enthralling series-finale at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
22:45 hrs IST: India have won the match by 67 runs and they clinch the series 2-1. Brilliant performance.
22:37 hrs IST: The last rites of this match are being played. India are nearing a big win and they are coming close to a series win.
22:22 hrs IST: WICKET! A six and two fours off Bhuvneshwar but Pollard attempts one shot too many. Short ball and Pollard hooks it to deep midwicket but Ravindra Jadeja takes the catch close to the boundary. West Indies are 141/6 in 15 overs.
22:17 hrs IST: Two sixes and a four by Kieron Pollard as Kuldeep does not end well. The skipper notches up his fifty but West Indies are 124/5 after 14 overs.
22:10 hrs IST: Only two runs in the over from Dube. Looks like Pollard is going for either six or nothing. West Indies are 107/5 after 13 overs. The latest update on Evin Lewis is that he will not bat as he has suffered ligament injury on the knee.
22:06 hrs IST: Kieron Pollard is the lone hope now but Windies need close to 16 runs an over. West Indies are 105/5 in 12 overs.
22:02 hrs IST: WICKET! Kuldeep has two. Flighted delivery on middle and off stump, Jason Holder miscues the lofted shot and holes out to wide long on where Manish Pandey takes the catch. West Indies are 103/5 in the 12th over.
22:00 hrs IST: Good over from Mohammed Shami as he nails the yorker. West Indies are 103/4 after 11 overs. The asking rate is close to 15.
21:52 hrs IST: WICKET! Two consecutive sixes by Hetmyer. Kuldeep goes round the wicket and bowls a full toss on leg stump, Hetmyer thumps it to wide long on but to his horror, he finds the fielder who takes the catch. He is gutted as he walks off for 41. West Indies are 91/4 in the 10th over.
21:49 hrs IST: Pollard hits another six off Dube while Hetmyer survives another dropped catch as the ball lands in between KL Rahul and Shami. West Indies are 79/3 in nine overs.
21:45 hrs IST: CATCH DROPPED! Hetmyer thumps Dube to mid off where Shami leaps to his right but he cannot latch onto it. West Indies are 70/3 in the ninth over.
21:43 hrs IST: Pollard smokes a huge six off Kuldeep Yadav as he goes past 1000 T20I runs. However, it is still a good over for India as West Indies are 68/3 after eight overs.
21:38 hrs IST: Horror start for Shivam Dube as he concedes 19 runs in his first over with three fours and one six. After seven overs, West Indies are 60/3.
21:33 hrs IST: Pollard whips a bottom-handed six over deep midwicket off Bhuvneshwar Kumar. There is an appeal for an LBW against Shimron Hetmyer but India lose the review as the ball was pitching outside the line of leg stump. After six overs, West Indies are 41/3.
21:28 hrs IST: Shimron Hetmyer blasts two sixes off Mohammed Shami as West Indies look to fight. After five overs, they are 33/3.
21:23 hrs IST: West Indies are in a big hole and they will need a Kieron Pollard special. One does not know whether Lewis will be available to bat. West Indies are 19/3 after four overs.
21:19 hrs IST: WICKET! West Indies are sinking here. Short and wide ball from Deepak Chahar and Nicholas Pooran cuts it to deep backward point, Shivam Dube runs to his left and takes the catch tumbling to his left. West Indies are 17/3 in the fourth over.
21:16 hrs IST: WICKET! Mohammed Shami into the action now. Full ball on the middle and leg stump line, Simmons clears the front leg and looks to hit it over midwicket but the ball spoons off the outside edge and goes to Shreyas Iyer running back at deep midwicket. West Indies are 17/2 after three overs.
21:08 hrs IST: WICKET! Bhuvneshwar strikes after getting hit for a four. Good length ball outside off, King looks to loft the cover drive but slices it and the catch is taken at deep cover by KL Rahul. West Indies are 12/1 after 1.5 overs.
21:04 hrs IST: Deepak Chahar drifts onto the legs and Brandon King flicks it to the long leg fence. West Indies are 7/0 in the first over.
21:00 hrs IST: Update: Evin Lewis has jarred his knee and he has been taken to hospital for scans. It does not look like he will bat in this match. Big blow for West Indies.
20:50 hrs IST: KL Rahul is caught for 91 but Kohli ends the innings with a six as India finish on 240/3, the highest T20I total at the Wankhede stadium. Massive task for the West Indies.
20:41 hrs IST: Kohli on a carnage in Wankhede! Three sixes and a boundary by Kohli and he gets to his 24th fifty off just 21 balls. 27 runs in the over and India are 231/2 after 19 overs.
20:35 hrs IST: Rahul blasts a six straight down the ground and Kohli hammers Williams over deep midwicket. India have gone past 200. After 18 overs, India are 204/2.
20:31 hrs IST: Kohli and Rahul both find the boundaries off Cottrell. Can Rahul get to his ton? After 17 overs, India are 187/2.
20:27 hrs IST: Brilliant over from Kesrick Williams in the circumstances. Only three runs. After 16 overs, India are 176/2.

20:17 hrs IST: Kohli blasts a six off Hayden Walsh but West Indies are pulling things back slightly. After 14 overs, India are 151/2.
20:10 hrs IST: WICKET! Another failure for Rishabh Pant. Full ball outside off, Pant drills the lofted drive to long off but he holes out. The pressure will only grow now. India 138/2 after 12.2 overs.
20:04 hrs IST: WICKET! Finally, some respite for West Indies. Full ball outside off, Rohit has an almighty slog at deep midwicket but he miscues it totally and he holes out for 71. After 11.4 overs, India are 135/1.
19:56 hrs IST: Rohit blasts a six off Hayden Walsh and Rahul thumps two consecutive fours as the carnage continues. After 11 overs, India are 132/0.
19:52 hrs IST: Rohit and Rahul continue to find the boundaries. After 10 overs, India are 116/0.
19:47 hrs IST: 8th fifty for KL Rahul. He tucks Jason Holder to the leg side and India are 108/0 after 9.1 overs.
19:43 hrs IST: 19th fifty for Rohit Sharma. He is looking ominous. Two sixes and a four off Kharry Pierre and India are 102/0 after eight overs. 220-230 on the cards.

19:27 hrs IST: Rohit continues to find the boundary with ease while a stunning effort from Evin Lewis prevents a six. India are making rapid progress, reaching 58/0 after five overs.

19:14 hrs IST: Rohit thumps a flat six to wide long on and then follows it up with a boundary straight down the ground to long off. Rohit ends the over in style with a glided boundary to third man as India end on 30/0 after three overs.
19:10 hrs IST: Jason Holder gets some outswing and Rahul gets two streaky boundaries to the third man fence. There is an appeal for a catch but West Indies do not go for the review. India are 14/0 after two overs.
19:06 hrs IST: Rohit Sharma gets going with a blazing on the up drive to the deep extra cover fence. Sheldon Cottrell is getting some inswing. India are 5/0 in the first over.
18:42 hrs IST: The stats in Mumbai favour teams batting second. In six T20Is, teams that have fielded first have won five games and only one has been lost. Even in 2016, West Indies chased and emerged winners. Dew factor? Maybe.
18:36 hrs IST: Two changes in the Indian team. Mohammed Shami has replaced Ravindra Jadeja while Kuldeep Yadav replaces Yuzvendra Chahal. West Indies, on the other hand, are unchanged. Here are the playing XIs.
West Indies (Playing XI): Lendl Simmons, Evin Lewis, Brandon King, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran(w), Kieron Pollard(c), Jason Holder, Khary Pierre, Hayden Walsh, Sheldon Cottrell, Kesrick Williams

18:24 hrs IST: There are some changes which might be in store for the Indian cricket team. Mohammed Shami and Kuldeep Yadav might play today. Who goes out will be the major question. Toss and teams in a bit.
18:11 hrs IST: A warm welcome to the third and final Twenty20 International in Mumbai. For the second consecutive time, there will be a shootout in Wankhede. In the 2016 World T20, West Indies aced the semi-final chase of 193. Now, in 2019, West Indies have ended a seven-match losing streak and they will be determined to win the series.
