Axar Patel was smashed for 4 boundaries including 3 massive sixes in a single over by West Indies captain Nicholas Pooran and he also got run out on the last ball of the over.
Tables turn around so quickly in T20 cricket and another example was seen in the 4th India vs West Indies T20I match.
Windies captain Nicholas Pooran won the toss and opted to bowl first but the Indian team put up a great show with the bat and scored 191/5 in 20 overs.
Avesh Khan gave India a great start as he picked up two wickets in quick succession. But Pooran chose to counter attack and put the pressure back on the Indian bowlers. He straight jumped on Axar Patel who came to bowl his first over.
Pooran hit boundary in the first ball followed by 3 massive sixes on that over in all parts of the ground.
At the very moment the left handed destructive batter was looking dangerous, he was caught in a mix up with the non-striker batsman and left in the mid crease. Sanju Samson took the opportunity and Pooran got run out on individual 24(8) runs.
It was maybe the most exciting over of the ongoing series that started giving the batting team the upper hand but ended with putting the bowling team in a commendable position.
Currently Rovman Powell and Shimron Hetmyer are at the crease. Both the batters will look up to build a partnership from here to get the target and keep the series alive.
