IND vs WI : The series being played between India and West Indies is now tied at 1-1. Indian team lost the second match by five wickets. However, three more matches are yet to be played and any team can win the series. In the second match, Team India had scored a small score of 138 runs, but even after this, Team India remained in the match till the 19th over, but the match ended in the last over and the Indian team lost. Avesh Khan bowled very poorly in the last over and the match ended in the first two balls. However, questions are also being raised on the decision taken by the team captain Rohit Sharma regarding the last over.
West Indies needed 16 runs in the last 12 balls
The Indian team had scored 138 runs and West Indies had to score 139 runs to win this match. By the time the 18 overs were over, the West Indies team needed 16 runs in 12 balls. Arshdeep Singh brings the 19th over. He conceded only six runs in this over and also took the wicket of Rovman Powell. That is, the match was still in India’s hold. Avesh Khan brings the last over. He bowled a no ball on the very first ball of the last over. The next ball after that was a free hit. Devon Thomas hit a six. The match went out of India’s hands from here. There were still five more balls left, but on the next ball, Thomas hit a four and won the match for his team.
Rohit Sharma told why the last over was given to Avesh Khan
Captain Rohit Sharma gave the last over to Avesh Khan when Bhuvneshwar Kumar also had overs left. Earlier, Bhuvneshwar Kumar had bowled only two overs and conceded 12 runs. It is true that he did not get any wicket, but India has the most experienced bowler Bhuvi. In such a situation, Bhuvneshwar Kumar has won his team many times, but the captain had a different thought. After the match was over, captain Rohit Sharma said that he wanted to give the 20th over to Avesh Khan, even though he had Bhuvi with him. Said that if you do not give chance to Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan, then they will not be able to shine. He has done this many times in IPL. However, this time Rohit Sharma’s bet turned upside down and the match went out of India’s hands.
