Sheldon Cottrell wreaked England batting in the second ODI to hand Windies a series-levelling win in the five-match series. It was the manner of Windies win that would hurt top-ranked ODI side as they were cruising in the chase till 40th over and then suddenly, everything fell apart.
Earlier, the latest batting sensation from the Caribbean, Shimron Hetmyer put on an exhibition of modern batsmanship to notch his fourth ODI hundred in 23rd ODI to flatten England’s bowling. The returning Universe Boss Chris Gayle too racked a second straight 50+ score in the series on the back of hundred in the first ODI.
Watch: Hetmyer’s stroke-filled 100 in the second ODI
“Really pleased, credit to Hetty, he set it up on a sticky wicket, and credit for the way we defended it, led by Sheldon Cottrell. Cottrell added variation, I love his energy, he’s one for the future. And it’s good to see the young players stepping up.” – JASON HOLDER, Windies Captain
“We thought 290 was well within our capabilities. We made mistakes and it hurt us, and West Indies deserved to win.” – Eoin Morgan, England Captain
Pitch conditions: In the last ODI played at the venue, Windies skittled Bangladesh for a partly 70. There could be some assistance for the bowlers.
