Indian Cricket team is all set to bounce back in the second match of the T20 series in the same venue against West Indies, especially after a heart-breaking, one-run loss in the first match yesterday. Despite pulling-off highest successful run chase in T20 international matches, India could only manage to score a total of 244 for the loss of four wickets, falling behind the victory line by one run.
The exciting match saw players from both the teams scored a hundred in each innings with KL Rahul scoring 110 runs for no loss. However, the outstanding century could not help India win the first match against the West Indies Cricket team. Even though, MS Dhoni’s last hit was caught breaking millions of Cricket hearts, there are a lot of expectations from tonight’s match as India will fight its way to a win against one of the strongest teams in the Cricket world in their second T20 International match.
