In the post-match interview, Brathwaite said, “Our batting continues to let us down. We got a young group of guys so we need to appreciate the positives, the small good things we did. We are still trying to find our best opening combination. We never got off to a good start in the first two games. It’s difficult to choose the perfect batting pair but we’re trying. We need to make the best decisions, we think. It didn’t work batting wise in these two games. Hopefully in the third game we’ll put up a better performance and come up with a win.”
The second T20I saw India’s stand-in captain Rohit Sharma become the first batsman to score four T20I centuries as he remained 111 not out.
India had set up an imposing 196-run target for the visitors. And then yet another impressive bowling performance from Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Khaleel Ahmed ensured the Windies were restricted to 124/9 in 20 overs.
India and the Windies square off in the third T20I, which will be held in Chennai on November 11.
After the Windies tour is over, India face a tough challenge Down Under, facing Australia in a three-match T20I series, followed by a four-match Test series.
