St Kitts: 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).
