WI overhauled the target with four balls to spare, riding on Brandon King's 68 in the second T20I cricket match

West Indies beat India by five wickets in the second T20I here on Monday. Opting to bowl, Obed McCoy returned with a career-best six-wicket haul as West Indies dismissed India for 138.

Hardik Pandya was the top scorer with a run-a-ball 31, while Rishabh Pant (24) and Ravindra Jadeja (27) also got starts but couldn't capitalise in a match that was pushed back by three hours due to delay in arrival of team kits.

While McCoy was the most successful bowler with figures of 4-1-17-6, Alzarri Joseph (1/29), Akeal Hosein (1/22) and Jason Holder (1/23) were the other wicket-takers. In reply, WI overhauled the target with four balls to spare, riding on Brandon King's 68 and an unbeaten 19-ball 31 off Devon Thomas.

Brief scores: India: 138 allout in 19.3 overs (Hardik Pandya 31; Obed McCoy 6/17); West Indies: 141 for 5 in 19.2 overs (Brandon King 68; Ravindra Jadeja 1/16).
