India bowlers came up with an improved performance from the first T20I and bowled out West Indies for 143 runs in the second T20 international in Florida. After winning the toss and electing to bowl, India made sure that West Indies do not get off to a good start as they did on Saturday and Mohammed Shami dismissed first match centurion Evin Lewis in the second over of the day. The Indian spinners then took over and Amit Mishra broke the West Indies backbone by dismissing Johnson Charles. He later came back to pick two more wickets. R Ashwin was also among wickets and Jasprit Bumrah bowled perfect yorkers to choke the West Indies at death. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was impressive with the new ball with Shami. In the end, West Indies could manage only 143 runs from their 20 overs.

First T20I recap

In the first match, India had suffered a one-run loss in the first T20 international against West Indies at the same venue on Sunday. On Saturday, India almost pulled off the highest ever successful run-chase in T20 Internationals but they managed only 244/4 in reply to West Indies 245/6 in the 20 overs. A match that went down to the wire saw two hundreds in either innings for West Indies and India but Evin Lewis’ ton ended up on the winnings side. For India, KL Rahul scored unbeaten 110 runs but failed to win it for India.

After putting West Indies into bat, MS Dhoni had to pay for the decision as Johnson Charles and Evin Lewis shared a 126-run opening stand for West Indies. Lewis scored a century while Charles managed a 33-ball 79. Indian bowlers managed to pull back things in the last five overs as Jadeja and Bumrah struck twice in single over.

The Indian chase was led by KL Rahul who remained unbeaten on 110 but could not see his side through. Dhoni was on strike on the last ball when India needed two runs but he was caught at short third-man and West Indies claimed a one-run win. India will look to avenge that defeat and avoid a series whitewash at the hands of West Indies. Catch the live cricket scores and live cricket updates of the India vs West Indies T20I match here.
