Ind Vs Wi Obed McCoy Brandon King

After losing several matches in a row, West Indies finally got a chance to taste victory.

West Indies restricted India to just 138 runs on the back of a record-breaking 6-wicket performance by left-arm pacer Obed McCoy. Team India was all out 2 balls before the completion of 20 overs. Only one batsman of the team, Hardik Pandya (31 runs), was able to cross the 30-run mark.

Earlier this match was delayed by three hours from its scheduled time. Cricket West Indies issued a statement saying that due to the late arrival of the team kit, the match could not be started on time. Then when the match started, the Windies captain won the toss and decided to bowl first. Obed McCoy created panic with the very first ball of the match. Captain Rohit Sharma (0) returned to the pavilion on the ball taking his extra bounce.

Despite the fall of wickets, India continued the new mantra of aggressive batting and also hit some sixes in the powerplay. Despite this, wickets kept falling. Suryakumar Yadav (11), who came to open for the second consecutive match, dealt cheaply, while Shreyas Iyer also failed once again. Rishabh Pant continued to make quick runs with 2 sixes and a four as soon as he came, but he could not make the innings big.

The team’s pair of all-rounders, Hardik Pandya (31 in 31 balls) and Ravindra Jadeja (27 in 30 balls), together handled the innings and added 43 runs, but failed to collect runs quickly. Fast bowler Jason Holder broke this partnership by dismissing Hardik. McCoy then broke India’s hopes of a big score by dismissing Jadeja and Dinesh Karthik (07) in his second spell. India lost the last four wickets within 11 runs. Holder took two wickets for 23 runs.
