Islamabad crashed out without reaching the knockout stages for the 1st time.
Windies cricket team beat India cricket team by 8 wickets I the second T20I to level the three-match series 1-1 on Sunday. India's issues while batting first came to the fore once again against a disciplined West Indies side. India scored 170 for 7 with Shivan Dube hitting 54 off 30 balls and Rishabh Pant contributing an unbeaten 33 of 22. Rookie all-rounder Shivam Dube hit four maximums and stuck his maiden T20I half-century. West Indies seamer Kerick Williams and leg-spinner Hayden Walsh got two wickets each. In reply, West Indies reached the target with nine balls to spare. Lendl Simmons scored an unbeaten 67 off 45 balls and Evin Lewis scored 40 off 35 balls, added 73 for the first wicket to seal the issue, which was a strong response from West Indies, who'll head to Mumbai with great belief. Nicholas Pooran scored 38 off 18 balls, after coming back from a brief ban on charges of ball-tampering.
The Indian captain Virat Kohli believes that no total will be good enough if his team continues to field poorly. West Indies beat India by eight wickets in the second T20I on Sunday to leave the series 1-1 going into the decider. In the second game, two catches were put down in the fifth over, bowled by Bhuvneshwar Kumar, benefitting openers Lendl Simmons and Evin Lewis. Washington Sundar once again fluffed an easy catch and the ground fielding was also not up to the mark. Rishabh Pant also could not hang on to a difficult catch after his elbow hit the ground and thus the ball popped out. Later on, the returning Nicholas Pooran was also put down by Shreyas Iyer when he was on 18. Fielding plays a key role especially in the T20I format where even a single run saved can turn to be the difference between loss and win captain Kohli said "We had to get those 15 extra runs to defend, but look, if you field like that, then no total is big enough"
