    West Indies beat India by eight wickets in the second T20I to level the series 1-1 at Greenfield Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday. Windies got the toss on their name and invited the Men in Blue to bat first. Batting first, India put up a decent target to chase of 170 with 7 wickets down.

    It was Shivam Dube’s 54 off 30 balls and Rishabh Pant’s 33 off 22 which helped them to get a competitive score. Whereas on the Windies side, Lendl Simmons had smashed and scored an unbeaten 67 off 45 balls accompanying him to chase the target easily was Nicholas Pooran, who scored 38 off 18 balls winding up the match within 18.3 overs.

    Despite India’s loss, Shivam Dube was a player to watch out for throughout the match. In his 54 off 30 balls, he had four huge sixes followed by three fours. He had played numerous important knocks previously on the same ground, but he was happier on the fact that he was promoted up the order to No. 3 against the Windies. He made the promotion worth the score.

    Dube mentioned that he was nervous and under pressure initially, it was Rohit Sharma who helped him to calm down.

    'I got the opportunity to bat at number three which was a big deal for me. There was some pressure. Rohit Bhai asked me to back my ability and helped me calm down. I got the momentum after hitting a six and then I was playing my natural game. I always back my ability to clear any ground and it is my strength,' Dube said.

    'I think this ground is big but I have the capability of clearing any ground. I think that's my strength and I always go like that only,' he added.

    Speaking of the defeat, skipper Virat Kohli and Dube too believed that it was the below satisfactory fielding at the beginning which helped the Windies to chase the competitive score.

    He still was of the opinion that the team will bounce back and win the series. 'The dropped chances were crucial. It is part of the game. They also dropped some. We had a good total today but we failed to grab our chances. We have a good team and back ourselves to win the series.'
