IND vs. WI: The Indian cricket team suffered a 2-wicket loss in the second game of the 5-game T20 series against the West Indies. This puts Team India 2-0 down in the series. In that game, Team India had once made a comeback on a bowler basis, but due to a huge mistake by captain Hardik Pandya, the West Indies team won.

Team India drowned due to Hardik’s mistake

Team India were far behind at times in this game. The West Indies needed fewer runs to win and there were too many balls. But Yuzvendra Chahal, scoring the West Indies’ 16th inning, changed everything. Chahal gave up just two runs that over and sent two West Indies batsmen into the pavilion. Jason Holder (0) and Shimron Hetmyer (22) lost their wickets in the over at Chahal. Romario Shepherd was also eliminated in the same run without opening an account.

From here, the West Indies team needed just 24 runs of 24 balls, but their 8 wickets were down. Team India was back in full swing. Mukesh Kumar, who came after Chahal in the 17th over, only scored three runs in his over. From here it was expected that Hardik would once again pass the ball to Chahal as the latter was getting a lot of help off the field and was also in rhythm. But Hardik surprised everyone by handing the ball to Arshdeep Singh. There were 9 runs in that over by Arshdeep and Team India did not take a wicket. In addition, Hardik did not pass the ball to Chahal in the next over either. Mukesh Kumar brought the 19th over of the windies innings and by the 5th ball of that over the West Indies team had won.

Poor captaincy by Hardik

Hardik’s decision once again left Team India behind and we lost another game in the series. Team India, who suffered a loss in the first game by just 4 runs, must now win the third game at all costs. Additionally, it’s Hardik’s responsibility to come on the field with a good combination in game three as Team India are missing an extra batsman in the final overs of the innings in both games of this series. On the other hand, opening pair Shubman Gill and Ishaan Kishan are a total flop. In such a situation, Yashasvi Jaiswal can get a chance to make his T20 debut in the third game.
