Axar Patel hogged the limelight with a starring all-round efficiency as India hammered West Indies by 119 runs within the fourth T20I to take a 3-1 unbeatable lead within the five-match collection in Lauderhill on Saturday.
After being invited to bat, India rode on Rishabh Pant and skipper Rohit Sharma’s helpful sufficient contributions to submit a aggressive complete of 191 for five within the fourth T20I towards West Indies on Saturday. The guests then returned to dismiss West Indies for 132 in 19.1 overs with Arshdeep Singh choosing up a career-best three-wicket haul and Avesh Khan, Axar, and Ravi Bishnoi returning with two-wicket hauls.
West Indies vs India, 4th T20I: Highlights
Rohit (33) and Pant (44) have been the principle contributors, whereas Axar Patel struck some meaty blows in the direction of the top to complete unbeaten on 20 off 8 balls. West Indies left-arm pacer Obed McCoy was smoked for 66 runs off his 4 overs solely every week after taking a career-best six-wicket haul within the second ODI. It was the most costly spell by a West Indies bowler in T20Is.
McCoy went for 3 sixes and 25 runs in an over. In these three, Rohit had a pair — a pullover deep mid-wicket and a flat one over long-off. Rohit then slog-swept six off Akeal Hosein (1/28 in 4 overs), however the very subsequent supply, which was a tad slower and the size barely shorter, caused his downfall.
However Rohit’s 33 in a stand of 53 in lower than 5 overs set the tone and gave different batters time and confidence to go after the bowling. The cushion of the strike charge gave Pant and Deepak Hooda (21 off 19 balls) shut to 6 overs to provide a 47-run stand, which was the launch pad for the ultimate flourish from Axar.
