India and the Windies will square off with each other at newly built stadium in Lucknow. The hosts have a 1-0 lead in the three-match T20I series and would like to grab the honors in the second match. The hosts had to battle hard to chase down the paltry score of 110 runs in the first match. The victory was set up by the bowlers as India restricted the tourists for a mundane score of 109 runs.
Kuldeep Yadav was the architect of India’s win as the mystery chinaman scalped three wickets. Furthermore, the southpaw spinner got the ball in the corridor of uncertainty as he asked difficult questions from the Windies batsmen.
Oshane Thomas also bowled with fire as he yielded great pace. In fact, Thomas had the hosts on the ropes as he was able to send back Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma in quick succession.
Meanwhile, Dinesh Karthik’s experience was able to rescue India. Krunal Pandya also had a fine start to his T20I career as he scalped one wicket and gave finishing touches to India’s run-chase.
