Virat Kohli had copied Kesrick Williams’ celebration in the previous T20I and the West Indian got back at the India captain
Kesrick Williams won round two of his battle against Virat Kohli in the second T20I.
India won the first T20I with relative ease but the second T20 isn’t going as planned. The home side only scored 170 for 7 wickets when batting first.
Shivam Dube scored 54 from 30 balls while Kohli only got 19 from 17. The Indian star had scored 94 in the first clash but was unable to match his score.
Kohli did taunt Williams by copying his celebration in the first game after smacking him for a six.
However, the tables were turned on the Royal Challengers Bangalore star as Williams got his wicket with Lendl Simmons picking up the catch.
Williams is known for his notebook celebration, which Kohli had copied, but this time the West Indian decided to shush the crowd.
Kohli did claim that it was all a bit of fun and games after the first clash. However, Williams didn’t seem all that happy after taking the Indian star’s wicket.
India could have done more and it will be interesting to see if 170 is enough to win the game.
West Indies going well
The away side saw some great bowling from Sheldon Cottrell and Khary Pierre, but the pair only got one wicket each.
Hayden Walsh Jr and Williams were the most successful bowlers with two wickets each as they restricted India to 170.
The Windies are going well at the moment with 26/0 from five overs. Evin Lewis and Lendl Simmons are on the pitch with a lot of batting power left in the side.
Kieron Pollard, Shimron Hetmyer and Brandon King can score big runs when needed.
Deepak Chahar has been hit the most from all the Indian bowlers having conceded 18 runs from his two overs.
The Windies have a great chance of tying their series at 1-1 with the win, and that will lead to an exciting third clash too.
India and West Indies are two of the best in the shortest format of the game. There was some great batting in the first clash, and it seems that the bowlers are coming out on top in this one.
