West Indies’ first win after 10 matches
This year, the Caribbean team had lost 10 consecutive matches to India, including ODIs and T20s. But this win will definitely boost their morale in the series. West Indies have defeated India in a T20 match for the first time since 2019. In 2019, when West Indies came on India tour, they got their last victory. Not only this, this is the first time in five years after 2017, when West Indies have defeated Team India in a T20 match on their soil.
West Indies won in the last over
The match could not be started on time due to the late arrival of the team kit. When the match started, after losing the toss and batting first, India got off to a bad start. Rohit Sharma got a golden duck on the very first ball of the match, McCoy had shown him the way to the pavilion. After that none of the players could survive. Hardik Pandya scored the highest 31 runs. In the first match of the series, the Indian team had won by 68 runs, then they scored 190 runs, but in this match, the score could only go up to 138 due to the flop show of the batsmen. West Indies needed just 16 runs in the last two overs, but the match went to the last over, four balls to the first 5 wickets to win the hosts.
