India won the second T20 by 8 runs to give themselves an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series at Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
The West Indies team steadily chipped away at the score. Roston Chase continued to provide problems for the hitters, eventually dismissing Rohit, Kohli, and Suryakumar. Nonetheless, after Kohli’s departure, Pant and Iyer stepped up the pace, and India finished on a high note.
Nicholas Pooran and Rovman Powell of the Windies displayed all of their power-hitting pyro techniques at Eden Gardens, not only reviving West Indies from the early blows but also threatening India with a difficult win but Harshal Patel and
Bhuvneshwar Kumar held their nerve in the final three overs. India triumphed by
eight wickets to take a commanding 2-0 lead in the series
India – 186/5 (20.0)
