WI vs IND, 3rd T20I


WI bounced back in the second game to blow the series wide open. Obed McCoy’s heroics with ball in hand sinked the visitors in the second match. The third match of this riveting series will be played on Tuesday, 2nd August at the Warner Park. 

After getting humiliated in the opening match, the hosts made an exceptional comeback in the second game to level the series. Bowling first McCoy exposed India’s left armer vulnerabilities and ripped through India’s batting. He removed Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav in his first spell. In his second spell he picked the key wickets of Ravindra Jadeja, Dinesh Kartik, R Ashwin and Bhuveneshwar Kumar. After wrapping the Indian innings at 138, Windies comfortably chased down the target with 4 balls to spare. Brandon King was the top scorer for the hosts with 68 runs to his name. Pooran and co will now look to carry forward the winning momentum and extend their lead. 

India were taken by surprise in the second game. After being asked to bat first, the visitors were bundled out for 138. Their top order was rattled by McCoy’s brilliance with the ball. Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja tried to revive the faltering innings before the former was dismissed by Jason Holder. Pandya’s wicket was the beginning of India’s batting collapse as the visitors lost the last five wickets for just 34 runs. India should take this defeat as a wake up slap and try to avoid the mistake of letting their guard down. Ahead of this crackling contest let us have a look at how these two sides will fare out in the clash.
