India defeated the West Indies by 22 runs on the basis of the Duckworth-Lewis Rule in the second T20 International cricket match played in Florida in the United States.
Along with this, India also achieved an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
It was a target of 168 runs for the West Indies to win, and also lost 98 runs in four balls in 15.3 overs, but only after the rain had to stop the game.
While playing the game Kieron Pollard was eight and Simron Hetmayer was playing with six runs. The West Indies needed 70 runs in 27 balls to win.
Clearly, this goal was not so easy in front of India's superb bowling. After waiting for a while, India was declared the winner after noticing that the match was unlikely to happen again.
Rohit's half century
India captain Virat Kohli had decided to bat first before winning the toss.
Opening batsman Rohit Sharma, with open hand, played a stern innings of 51 off 51 balls with the help of six fours and three sixes.
In his previous match, his partner Shikhar Dhawan, who got cheaper in the last match, also scored 23 runs with three fours in 16 balls.
Both of them shared an important partnership of 67 runs in 7.5 overs for the first wicket.
Apart from these, captain Virat Kohli scored 28 and Kunal Pandya scored an unbeaten 20. Manish Pandey scored six and Rishabh Pant made four runs.
West Indies' opener Thomas scored two runs for 27 runs and Sheldon Cottrell took two wickets for 25 runs.
West Indies batsman's heap
On the other hand, the problem of batting for the West Indies, which scored only 95 runs in the first match, also remained in the second match.
Both of their openers reached the eighth run and reached the pavilion. Sunil Narine four and Evelyn Lewis were run out without any runs.
However, Rowman Powell took charge with 54 and Nicholas Puran scored 19 runs. Despite this, the Indian bowlers kept control of the match.
In good form Rohit
After India's easy victory in both of these matches, Cricket critic Ayaz Memon believes that if the semi-finals are dropped in the World Cup then the way Rohit Sharma has seen his form is fantastic.
In the first match, most of the two teams did not bat even though they scored 24 runs. And in the second match, he played very aggressive and scored a half century.
Even after being dismissed, it seemed that perhaps India would score 180 or more but Florida's wicket was not so.
Pant must understand the value of his wicket
Regarding the batting of Virat Kohli, Manish Pandey and Rishabh Pant, Ayyam Memon said that Virat Kohli and Manish Pandey were dismissed after getting good start in both the matches.
It will be a pity for them and perhaps it will also see its effect in the next match.
It is Rishabh Pant that has a lot of talent but he has to think of his value. To fill Mahendra Singh Dhoni's place he will have to work hard. Well he is very young and it will take time to get mature.
The West Indies could have done it well in T20. Virat Kohli was fortunate that India won the first match after battling, and in the second match also the bowlers showed the maximum.
If Navdeep Saini and Khalil Ahmed continue to bowl like this then they can make a place in next year's Twenty20 World Cup team.
The third and last T20 match between the two teams will now be played in Guyana on Tuesday. Maybe there is something that West Indies can do on their own ground.
- India won, but weak West Indies saved six sixes
- Dhoni's career is at his last stop?
- Will the Indian team cross the inconveniences?
