Keemo Paul to Gulbadin Naib. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Hetmyer. That was an excellent final over from Keemo Paul but Afghanistan will still be pretty happy with their total. Rahmanullah Gurbaz smashed a career best 79, before some late cameos helped them to 8-156. West Indies were not at their best in the field with some dropped catches and fumbles costing them dearly. It should be an exciting chase next with the series on the line.

OUT! Caught. Keemo Paul to Mohammad Nabi. Length ball, outside off stump Deep in crease driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Holder. Nabi looks to launch the ball into orbit but he had to fetch it from outside off stump so can only drag it to the safe hands of Holder. That could be a crucial moment in the context of the match, Nabi is capable of fireworks at the death.

OUT! Caught. Kesrick Williams to Najibullah Zadran. Half volley, to leg on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Pollard. Spooned tamely into the deep, Pollard is never going to miss it with his bucket-hands. Williams continues to take wickets in this series. He celebrates in the style of Megan Rapinoe.

The end of a wonderful innings. Pollard looks to hide the ball way outside off and Gurbaz tries to go with it. There is no pace to work with so it ends up falling into the hands of the fielder positioned out there. Much needed breakthrough for Pollard.

OUT! Caught. Sheldon Cottrell to Hazratullah Zazai. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot cutting, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to cover, by Lewis. An early salute from Cottrell as he grabs the big wicket of Zazai. The left-armer ran his fingers across the ball and got it to stick in the pitch so the opener was through his shot way too early. Great start for the men in maroon.

Start of Afghanistan Innings. Welcome to coverage of the Third T20I between Afghanistan and West Indies in Lucknow. We are set for a thrilling conclusion to the series with everything to play for today. Karim Janat's heroics levelled the series for Afghanistan yesterday, after Kieron Pollard and Evin Lewis had proved too strong for them in the opener. With a T20 World Cup not too far away, this evening will be a great test for these two teams to perform under serious pressure. It could also be a valuable boost heading into the Test series starting in ten days time.

Naveen-ul-Haq to Khary Pierre. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Gurbaz. Afghanistan have clinched the T20I series against the West Indies 2-1 thanks to a comprehensive 29 run victory this evening in Lucknow. Rahmanullah Gurbaz got them going with a powerful 79, hitting five towering sixes despite losing wickets at the other end. He rode his luck at times but cashed in to register a career best in this format. West Indies never really got going in response. Chasing 157, Shai Hope tried to hold the innings together with the required run rate always on the rise. In the end the target was too much with parsimonious Afghanistan spin complemented by Naveen-ul-Haq's wily variations. We swap from white ball to red on this tour now, with the Test match scheduled to start at this same venue in ten days time.

OUT! Bowled. Mujeeb Ur Rahman to Lendl Simmons. Googly back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, missed to. Simmons departs, Mujeeb rearranges his stumps with a well disguised variation. Vital early breakthrough for the hosts, that will ramp up the pressure on the Windies batsmen. It's always dangerous playing Mujeeb from the crease, Simmons will regret that as his first innings for the national team for more than two years ends in failure.

FOUR! Naveen-ul-Haq to Evin Lewis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep backward point for 4 runs. Carved with disdain, we will probably see plenty more of that from Lewis because he won't be running many quick singles.

Naveen-ul-Haq to Lendl Simmons. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to mid wicket for 1 run, shy attempt by Janat. Lewis seems to have taken a blow on the knee as he stretched to make his ground after that single. The fielder was aiming for the stumps and unfortunately hit the batsman. It looks painful.

FOUR! Naveen-ul-Haq to Lendl Simmons. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. That sat up nicely, Simmons had ample time to rock back and pierce the field with a rasping stroke.
