WIvIND: The thrill of the second T20 in 6 points, things you missed in the midnight match

St. Kitts and Nevis: Left-arm pacer Obed McCoy’s six-wicket haul followed by a half-century from Brendan King gave oxygen to the West Indies. In this way, in the second T20 International, India lost by five wickets on Monday night. The Caribbean team has now leveled the series 1-1. Man of the Match McCoy made his career-best performance of six wickets for 17 runs in four overs. If you have not seen this match that ended at midnight, then let us explain with 6 points what happened?

1. The toss was delayed by three hours in the match, as there was a long delay in reaching the team’s essentials from Trinidad to St Kitts. Cricket West Indies (CWI) had earlier said that there would be a delay of two hours but later reduced this time to three hours. The Board, however, did not provide any explanation for the excessive delay.

2. India also lost their captain on the very first ball after losing the toss in the match being played at Warner Park. Rohit Sharma was dismissed by Obed McCoy on the first ball of the Indian innings. Due to this the start of Team India got spoiled. This was the eighth time Rohit got out for a duck in T20Is.

3. After the loss of the captain to a golden duck, the fall of wickets continued. Within 6 overs of the powerplay, Team India had suffered three blows. The run rate was definitely above 9, which can be called right, but despite scoring 56 runs, the Indian player could not take advantage of this base. Till now Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya had played more than half a dozen balls.

4. Rishabh Pant’s dismissal in the 7th over shocked the Indian team. He was dismissed for 24 runs in 12 balls. After this, in the 14th over, Hardik Pandya also went on. His innings of 31 runs in 31 balls not only reduced the run rate but the team came under pressure after a fast start.

5, In the 18th over, India’s score was 127 for 6 wickets. Dinesh Karthik was at the crease. Ravichandran Ashwin was also standing with him. In such a situation, it seemed that the team would cross the 150 mark, but McCoy also ended India’s last hope by dismissing DK, Ashwin and Bhuvi in ​​the 19th over. McCoy took 6 wickets for just 17 runs in his quota of four overs.

In the first match of the series, the Indian team had won by 68 runs, then they scored 190 runs, but in this match, the score could only go up to 138 due to the flop show of the batsmen. West Indies, now chasing the target, needed only 16 runs in the last two overs, but Arshdeep got Team India back in the 19th over. Avesh Khan had to save 10 runs in the last over, but the hosts won the match by 5 wickets in the first four balls.
