IND vs WI 2nd T20I: West Indies bounce back to level series, beat India by 5 wickets

IND vs WI 2nd T20I: After losing the first T20I, West Indies made a stellar comeback against India to level the series 1-1 on Monday. Batting first, India was restricted to just 138 runs on the board. Once again, Rohit Sharma opened the batting alongside Suryakumar Yadav. However, the skipper got out on the very first ball he faced.

India, however, came up with an aggressive approach and stuck to it despite the regular fall of wickets. Suryakumar Yadav scored a six before getting out on 11 off 6 balls, while Shreyas Iyer (10 off 11), once again, failed to impress.

Rishabh Pant looked amazing for his 12-ball 24 but couldn’t convert that into a big score. Hardik Pandya played run-a-ball 31, while Ravindra Jadeja added 27 runs in 30 balls. Dinesh Karthik couldn’t replicate the innings he played in the last game and, thus, the team were bundled out for just 138 runs on the board. For West Indies, Obed McCoy was the pick of the bowlers, claiming 6 for 17 in 4 overs.

West Indies, in reply, lost the likes of K Mayers (8). Pooran (14), and Hetmyer (6) for low scores. However, Brandon King kept the team in the game with a stellar knock of 68 runs in 52 balls, including 8 fours and 2 sixes. He took the game out of the hands of the opposition.

Later, Devon Thomas played a stellar unbeaten cameo of 31 runs in 19 balls to help West Indies reach the target with four balls left in the match. With that win, the series is now levelled at 1-1 with three matches still to be played.

The third T20 international is slated to be played on Tuesday in St. Kitts.
