West Indies’ hopes of a comeback were dashed by a thrilling second T20I defeat by India in Kolkata on Friday night. Second, only to Pakistan in men’s cricket, India became the first team to win 100 Twenty20 International matches. More than 150 games have been played, with India winning 100, losing 51, and drawing four. Pakistan has won 118 of its 189 T20I matches. Incidentally, Pakistan has a lower win percentage than India (65.23%). (64.4 percent).
Only Afghanistan (67.97%) has a better victory percentage than India in T20Is over the last 50 matches.
Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant both hit half-centuries as India roared to 186 for five in Kolkata on Friday after being summoned to bat by the West Indies.
Pant hammered an unbeaten 52 off 28 balls to go with Kohli’s 52 off 41 balls towards the other end of the spectrum. 76 runs off 35 balls from the opening pair of Rishabh Pant and Venkatesh Iyer were critical in helping India post a mammoth total.
To make life difficult for the Windies in the chase, India used Yuzvendra Chahal in the powerplay overs. In the ninth over, Ravi Bishnoi got rid of Brandon King for a crucial run for India.
As a result, Nicholas Pooran and Rovman Powell each scored half-centuries to put the visitors in a commanding advantage. The West Indies were within striking distance when the duo contributed 100 runs in 60 balls.
But Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Harshal Patel’s excellent late-innings bowling ensured that the West Indies were edged out by eight runs.
Both Pooran and Powell scored 62 and 68, respectively, in their respective innings.
At the same location, the third and final T20I will be played on Sunday as well.
