West Indies' Andre Russell has just told Sky Sports he reckons his huge six off Hardik Pandya went 120m! It was officially measured at 99m, but I'm not going to argue with Dre Russ there...

Player reaction

India batsman Rohit Sharma on Sky Sports: "Coming so far and not crossing the line is obviously disappointing. When we got Gayle in the second over, we thought we were very much in the game. With the dew, it always gets a little tougher for the bowlers to hit that key length. 190 is a good score, but the way T20 is going you never know, we knew they were dangerous."

Here's the winning captain, @darrensammy88 - he's on his way to the #WT20 final! #INDvWI

Watch the highlights

It was a quite scintillating innings from Lendl Simmons. Watch the best bits here.

Well played @westindies pure class what a final against the old enemy boommmmm @OdgibsonOttis didn't want to see us and he knows it lol

#WI almost sent a reserve team to the #WT20 after a pre tournament pay dispute. Now they are in the final.

Captain's reaction

India captain MS Dhoni: "The only thing I'm disappointed about was the two no-balls [to reprieve Lendl Simmons]. Other than that we did our best. I thought 190 was a good score. It was a bad toss to lose because of the dew. It's a demanding format, it was draining because a few of our games [during the tournament] were very close."

Captain's reaction

West Indies captain Darren Sammy: "We knew it was going to be a massive test against a very good India team. I said they were 10 runs short. Even when we lost Gayle, we had Simmons just off the flight.

"We knew it was a chasing ground. It is a big step today we came on a mission inspired by U19 boys and the Ladies. Now we have two West Indies teams in final and I know that means a lot to the Caribbean.

"We said before the tournament, yes Gayle is our best player but we have 15 match winners. Today Charles and Simmons and Russell took responsibility."

The winning moment

England's flight to Kolkata punctuated by special announcements from captain... updating score from Mumbai ! Winning runs; baggage reclaim

Great great great!!! Well done Windies!!! #silence #wankhede #WestindiesvsEngland #ICCWT20 #finals proud to be West Indian

Maddy Raman: I think we can be sure it won't be a spinning dust bowl in Calcutta on Sunday now India are out. Should be a cracker.

Seetohul: More emotions in two weeks of t20 than 2 years of test cricket.T20 is the future.Sad but true.

Stevedwhittle: Found an English pub showing the final in Brooklyn.2 things guaranteed: 1 It'll be a great match.2 I'll be needing Monday off.

Player reaction

Man of the match Lendl Simmons: "I was under pressure, the team said I had to deliver and I guess I did tonight.

"I think it is one of my better innings especially in a tough situation. Playing on this pitch I knew 180, 190 was a par score. 

"I think we did exceptionally well, we didn’t get the start we wanted and then I got three chances and I just cashed in."

There we all were, thinking that Dwayne Bravo's missed run out of Virat Kohli would prove the defining missed opportunity of the match. How wrong we were. Instead, India contrived to reprieve Lendl Simmons not once, but twice, via the unforgivable medium of front-foot no-balls. How must Ravichandran Ashwin and Hardik Pandya be feeling?

West Indies in finals of men's and women's World T20. Already won the U19 World Cup last month. Crisis, what crisis?

What a game!! I've never seen anything like it. @westindies will need next 2 days to get over celebrations tonight #WT20

Full scorecard

Andre Russell finished it off, but given the context, that is one of the greatest T20 innings I've ever seen by Lendl Simmons. He wasn't in the original squad, he only stepped off a plane in India two days and he's cracked 82 off 51 to lead his team to the World 20 final. He should have been out though...twice.

Credit where credits due. That's one almighty run chase! So hard to defend on this ground. Great semi final. @ICC #INDvWI #WT20

U19 WC winners and now both Men and Women's teams in the #WT20 finals...how good is that @westindies Awesome 2016 !!!

BBC Test Match Special

"The West Indies players sprint out from the dug out. From the most unlikely situation West Indies have knocked off the 193 runs in fine style.

"India only have themselves to blame."

West Indies beat India by seven wickets

Full toss from Kohli, Russell throws the kitchen sink at it, it travels over the rope and West Indies are in the World T20 final! What an absolutely brilliant, brilliant chase.

WI 190-3

Russell heaves...ball runs into the leg side...beats the fielders! It's four! 3 needed off 3...

WI 186-3

Dot ball!

WI 186-3

Knocked away for a single by Simmons. Over to you, Andre...

What a game of Cricket this has been & still so much to happen. To close to call but whoever holds their nerve & remains calm will win !

Ebony Rainford-Brent

Ex-England batter on BBC Test Match Special

"The positions Russell is getting himself into. The West Indian bench is going crazy. As a chase it does not get better than this."

WI 185-3 (need 8 off 6)

What a shot! What a shot! Width outside off and absolutely laced over the covers for four! West Indies in the box seat. Who's going to bowl the last? Virat Kohli...

Charles Dagnall

BBC Test Match Special

"I am going to catch this! Just to my right hand side. A massive six from Andre Russell."

WI 181-3

Length ball, clobbered into the stands for six! 12 needed off seven...
