Ind Vs WI: West Indies beat India by eight wickets in the second T20 match played at the Greenfield International Cricket Stadium on Sunday, thanks to the stormy innings of Lendl Simmons. After this win, the Windies have tied 1-1 in the three-match series. In the first T20 match played in Hyderabad, India won and took the lead. Now the last match played in Mumbai has become decisive.
India, batting first, scored 170 runs, losing seven wickets in 20 overs on the basis of young Shivam Dubey (54 )’s first international half-century. The Windies achieved the target of 171 runs in 18.3 overs thanks to the combined performance of their batsmen led by Simmons.
However, Washington Sundar was given a life by dropping catches. Simmons took full advantage of this life and scored an unbeaten 67 off 45 balls. His innings included four fours and as many sixes. In addition to Simmons, opener Avin Lewis also got a life. Luis caught by wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant. Both these catches were missed by Bhuvneshwar in the same over. Louis scored 40 runs in 35 balls with three fours and three sixes. Before being dismissed, he shared a 73-run partnership for the first wicket with Simmons.
Virat Kohli Kohli caught a spectacular catch
Team India may have lost in this match, but the talk of team captain Kohli is happening everywhere. He caught a great catch in the match and explained why he is the fittest player in the world. Captain Virat Kohli could not do anything special in batting. However, during the fielding, he caught such a catch which on seeing the audience was shocked. Kohli took a wonderful catch in the ‘Superman’ style, close to the boundary rope, off Ravindra Jadeja.
Stunner! Only if some of the other fielders get inspired by Virat Kohli.
