However, they were very close to winning in two ODI matches against India but eventually lost as well. And, a victory in spite of struggling in the middle order meant a lot for Nicholas Pooran as well. Team India was bowled out for just 138 runs after Obed McCoy claimed the best-ever bowling figures by a West Indies bowler in T20I matches – 6/17 in his four overs spell as well. In reply, West Indies ensured a successful chase, with Brandon King scoring a 52-ball 68 and Devon Thomas hitting a quickfire 31 not out off 19 balls as well.

WI VVS IND: Both teams will try to take a lead in the third T20I

The West Indies captain said: “I can finally breathe now. It has been a tough summer, we have lost a couple of close games. Happy to cross the line. Bowlers were fantastic. Obed, McCoy. They used the pitch, the conditions, the wind well. The batters got us off to a good start, and even though we stumbled, a win is a win in the end. I believe that in T20 cricket our better batters have to bat more.”

“It didn’t work out for myself and Hetmyer today, but we want to continue taking responsibility. King batted really well, thought he should win the game for us, but he will learn from this. Thomas returned from an injury and came trumps in his home ground. McCoy is a bit of a freak, and we need to deal with him, but today he was excellent. Was smart bowling to Dinesh Karthik, lovely to have him in the team. Good to have the left-arm option as well,” he concluded.

The third T20I will take place on August 2 at Warner Park in Basseterre, St Kitts as well.
