South African limited-overs specialist Tabraiz Shamsi poked fun at his team after a high-scoring second T20I against the West Indies at Centurion on Sunday. The left-arm wrist-spinner posted on Twitter that the South African bowlers did well to hold their opponents to 258 in 20 overs.
Thanks to a quick hundred from Johnson Charles, the West Indies amassed nearly 260 runs, which was their greatest T20I total. In T20I cricket, Charles became the fastest T20I century-maker for the West Indies with a 39-ball 100. He also combined 135 runs with Kyle Mayers in 58 deliveries.
