After being down 0-2, India did not give up. They displayed resilience and have been an embodiment of the never-say-die attitude. Hardik Pandya and co. have now won the 4th T20I by 9 wickets and have sent out a strong statement.
Batting first, West Indies posted 178 runs on the board for the loss of 8 wickets. Arshdeep Singh and Kuldeep Yadav led the bowling stocks of India and kept taking wickets.
The 4th WI vs IND was a high-scoring game and it involved a lot of excitement, thrill and drama. India would be bent upon winning the series by winning the last T20I.
In this article, we take a look at the 3 talking points of the 4th T20I between West Indies and India:
1. Arshdeep Singh played extremely well
Team India left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh played exceedingly well in the 4th WI vs IND T20I. He took 3 wickets and prevented West Indies from getting a big score. Kyle Mayers, Brandon King and Shimron Hetmeyer were all dismissed by the young bowler.
Entrusted with bowling the final over of the innings, Singh took the wicket of Shimron Hetmeyer, who was batting on 61 runs. He was good with his variations and that helped in them restricting West Indies from scoring big in this game.
2. Yashasvi Jaiswal smashed 77 runs while chasing
The young opener in the form of Yashasvi Jaiswal scored 77* runs and made a mockery of the West Indies bowling department. He became the 4th youngest Indian to score a T20I fifty.
Jaiswal scored a boundary in the very first ball of the innings and smashed a fabulous knock that set the stage up for India. Jaiswal’s innings was peppered with 11 fours and 3 sixes and he stitched a 165-run partnership with Shubman Gill for the Indian cricket team.
3. Shubman Gill partnered with Jaiswal at the top in scoring big
After a few paltry scores in the entire white-ball leg of this India tour of West Indies, Shubman Gill finally got a big and impactful knock. Gill scored 77 runs in 47 balls and his innings was laced with 3 fours and 5 sixes.
Gill exhibited a good strike-rate of 163.83 and was fabulous with his timing. He took the West Indian bowlers to the cleaners and played exceedingly well at the top for the Indian cricket team in the 4th WI vs IND T20I.
