The run-flood in the series-opening game set the pattern for the remainder of the series as batsmen dominated from both sides. Can the bowlers turn the tables when the two teams meet for the second game in Thiruvananthapuram?
The second T20I will take place at Greenfield International Stadium, Thiruvananthapuram Sunday, 8 December; 07:00 pm local, 01:30 pm GMT.
West Indies simply can not take a break in the shortest format. The 2016 ICC T20 World Champions ranked tenth in the MRF Tires ICC T20I Team Ranking and lost nine of the ten games they have played this year.
They were even honored on Friday, December 6, at the inauguration of the T20I series against India even for large parts. Fresh from a Caribbean Premier League season, they came to India after discovering their latest breakout star in Brandon King, who led the CPL 2019 run charts and got on well with a 23-ball-31 win at Hyderabad distinguished.
But better attacks were not answered by a Virat Kohli on the rampage in the past, and the West Indies suffered the same fate that they all did. The bat went very little wrong, as the West Indies once again harassed the opposing bowlers with pure sore muscles, but their own deficits in the ball must be considered.
Like in the West Indies, the bat had much to lose in India – the most gratifying was the return of KL Rahul, who scored the victory, even though a normally fluent Kohli fought before becoming ballistic in the Slog over. But her bowling was a disappointment, and even more her catch, which was summed up by a hat-trick of drops in the 17th. It was a steep descent from the high standards that Virat Kohli’s men set for themselves.
In a series that will be marked by great success, bowlers from both sides will have a hard time. The kickoff on Friday was just a glimpse of what to expect for the rest of the series. Can the men who supply the leather find a solution and contain the rot?
Memories of the last T20I between India and West Indies
West Indies have beaten 207/5 with the help of 11 fours and 15 sixes to leave India, which has yet to complete its highest chase in the 20 caps. Rahul kept them hunting for the first half with a crisp half-century, while India recovered from the early loss of the unveiled Rohit Sharma.
However, the dismissal of Rahul did not give West India a breathing space. Far from it, when a scratchy Kohli suddenly rediscovered his mojo and made a ruthless attack on the way to 94 * 50 balls to seal the victory with eight balls.
What Captains Said?
Virat Kohli, captain of India: “When young batsmen are watching, do not follow the first half of my innings, I did not bet badly at the time, I did not want to put pressure on KL, but I could not get started, luckily I got that from Holder and then I started to analyze why I was wrong, I realized that I was not a slogger, but a timer, and then changed my playing style. “
Kieron Pollard, captain of West Indies: “The Batters did a good job, they took 208 ten out of ten, we lost because of the extra split, almost two and a half traditions of extra supplies, yes, that’s it.” It was a hideaway, but if we had implemented our plans better, it could have been a different story. “
