Right then, West Indies will be the happier of the two sides at the halfway mark. Considering the variable bounce off the surface, West Indies do have the resources to defend this total. As far as India are concerned, the chase isn’t going to be easy and will need to bat smartly to get over the line. Can the Indian batters rise to the occasion? We shall find out. Back in a bit for the chase…

Brandon King is in for a chat. He says that in the first 6 overs, they talked about getting to 150 and they are happy with it. Adds that personally, he found it a bit difficult to get going due to uneven bounce and to play spin on this track is challenging. Says that they have shown in the last two games that they can bowl well and is confident of getting the job done.

On the other hand, India will be a bit disheartened with how things went in the penultimate over. At the start, Hardik Pandya opted to introduce Yuzvendra Chahal and Axar Patel inside the Powerplay and this plan seemed to have backfired as both spinners were taken on by the West Indies openers. This move eventually paid off as Axar Patel got rid of Kyler Mayers. Returning to the side for this game, Kuldeep Yadav worked his magic and struck thrice in the middle overs to pile misery on the West Indies. With two relatively new batters at the crease, India would have fancied themselves to keep them quiet. However, it did not go as they would have liked towards the back end of the innings. Kuldeep Yadav was the pick of the bowlers for India with figures of 3 for 28 in his four overs.

Mukesh Kumar nailed his yorkers in the final over but Rovman Powell’s late flourish has helped West Indies post 159 on the board! After Rovman Powell won the toss and opted to bat, the opening pair of Brandon King and Kyle Mayers were circumspect in the first couple of overs but took on the Indian spinners who were introduced inside the Powerplay. With a solid 55-run opening stand, they laid a solid foundation for the West Indies innings. Nicholas Pooran continued where he left off in the previous game and looked set for another valuable knock but his stay was cut short by Kuldeep Yadav. With wickets falling at the other end, Bradon King’s momentum was hampered and he followed Pooran back into the hut soon after. At that stage, the West Indies needed someone to put their hands and so did their skipper, Rovman Powell. His unbeaten cameo of 40 runs off just 19 balls has propelled his side to 159.
