Dinesh Karthik’s cool and experience helped India cross the line and register a 5-wicket win in a short and tricky run chase of 109 runs in the first of three T20Is against Windies. The second T20I of the series will be played tomorrow at Ekana International Stadium, Lucknow at 07:00 PM IST. It will be the first time an international match will be played at this ground.
While it looked like a day for seamers at Eden Gardens, a totally opposite proportion is expected at Lucknow’s venue. While Kuldeep and Khaleel proved out to be the wicket-taking bowlers for India, young Oshane Thomas was the pick of bowlers for the visitors. Both the teams struggled with the bat and will be hoping to come back strong.
While India would be eyeing to seal the series with another win, this a must-win game for Windies and only chance to prevent the series from turning into a dead rubber. The third and last T20I will be played at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai on November 11, Sunday.
When: November 06, Sunday at 07:00 PM IST
Where: Ekana International Cricket Stadium, Lucknow
