The absence of Virat Kohli and KL Rahul has opened up opportunities for players to prove their potential. The Windies’ big three have also not performed to their potential. Nicholas Pooran, Jason Holder and Rovman Powell form an important trio in the middle order but have failed to impress in the first couple of games. It was Brandon Kings’s 68 that took them over the line in the second T20I.
“I can finally breathe now. It has been a tough summer for us. We lost a few close games and nearly made a mess of this as well. Obed was fantastic and all the guys just used the pitch and the conditions well. A win is a win. I believe in T20, better batsmen have to bat long. Myself, Hetmyer can take more responsibility” said Pooran after the second T20I win.
