The second T20I between India and West Indies at Lucknow had a bit of drama during the second innings. The game was, however, a one-sided affair and Windies were completely outplayed by India in both the aspects. During the chase of 196 runs, the visitors were not comfortable against the Indian bowling attack. 

The drama took place in 11th over when they were already four down on 68 runs. It was Jasprit Bumrah's over and he picked up the wicket of the Caribbean T20 star Kieron Pollard.

Pollard tried to pull a short ball from Bumrah but ended up top edging which was a dolly catch for the bowler. But as he casually ran towards the ball to take the catch,

Pollard, being cheeky, too started walking towards where the ball was supposed to land and in the end, he took off his hand right in front of Bumrah's eyes which disturbed him. Luckily, the pacer caught it without being distracted but he was furious. Pollard pretended like he didn't do it purposely. But it was, and Bumrah was surprised.

Eventually, India won the game by 71 runs. It was stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma who smashed his fourth T20I hundred. The hosts scored 195/2 before restricting West Indies on 124/9.

With the win in Lucknow, they have also secured the series by 2-0 now, with one more game to go.
