Islamabad crashed out without reaching the knockout stages for the 1st time.
West Indies skipper Kieron Pollard was happy with the way his batsmen approached the chase after registering an impressive eight-wicket win over India at Thiruvanantapuram on Sunday. "The way we batted, we had discussed how to approach the game and the boys played it well. We have some guys who have done well from the CPL and we are excited for them. I am pretty excited for this young bunch” Pollard said at a media conference. Pollard added that he was happy being the skipper to what he considers a young and talented bunch of cricketers and he wants to pass on his knowledge to them while helping them improve. After 2 T20Is, both the result follows a trend and pattern which indicates how brilliant India have been in chasing. Defending totals has been India’s biggest weaknesses in T20I cricket. India’s strength has been its batting, they have been excellent chasers and not so good when setting targets. To conclude, India have a dual problem in the death overs. They are not being able to provide the final flourish batting first and are then conceding too many runs in the final few overs while defending a target.
West Indies quick bowler Kesrick Williams settled the rating with Virat Kohli by altering his celebration after dismissing the Indian captain within the second T20I on Sunday. Already hyped Kohli-Williams rivalry has caught the fans' attention after Windies seamer dismissed the Indian skipper again in the second T20I. The Virat Kohli and Kesrick Williams rivalry that started 2 years back in Jamaica seems to be not ending anytime soon. Kohli played a captain's knock and remained unbeaten on 94 runs off 50 balls, guiding India to a six-wicket victory with eight balls to spare during the first T20I. Virat smashed the pacer for a maximum and a boundary and ended up going for 23 runs in the over, then used Williams’ celebration by using his bat like a notebook to "tick" Kesrick's name off the list. But, during the second T20I Williams bowled a slower delivery which caught the Indian skipper. However, after dismissing Kohli, Williams didn’t go for his signature 'notebook' send-off. Rather he had a very subdued mode of celebration as he put his index finger on his lips and showed a ‘Shush’ gesture to the crowd sending a signal to silent down.
