After the West Indies and India underperformed in the first T20I with the bat, they wanted to improve on this when they face each other on Sunday, August 4, in the second match of the three-game series in Lauderhill.
Both Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine marked their return to international cricket with impressive performances, both with the bat and the ball, but it was not enough as the batsmen rallied in the first game on Saturday 95/9 in the allotted 20 overs. Captain Carlos Brathwaite wants them to take responsibility and perform a lot better to stay alive in the three-game series.
With regard to India, the lack of pressure on the scoreboard ensured that the required goal was achieved, although the batsmen made no significant contribution. The young bowling attack, however, was excellent, which would please Virat Kohli, who will look for similar effects as India tries to seal the series.
