Comebacks are a major part of cricket. No matter what stage the game is in players always try to ensure that the pressure is on the opposite side. The strategies are made to help the team create momentum and generate impactful moments which in turn helps to strengthen the grip over the match with the passage of time. Players on an individual basis often provide the team with several important contributions which lead to the overall upliftment of the team’s morale. It’s the hard work put in by the player’s in their respective roles that leads to the rise of several individual battles amongst players of either sides in particular. A similar player battle which drew many attentions towards itself took place in the recent T20I match between India and West Indies.
The fourth T20I match of the five match series between India and West Indies is being played at the Central Broward Regional Park stadium. West Indies won the toss and opted to bat first. Kyle Mayers came out to open the batting along with his fellow teammate Brandon King. Kyle Mayers started off in fine fashion as he smashed a four and a six in the first over. Arshdeep Singh who had the ball in hand in the second over too was smacked for a four down the ground in the third ball of his over. Mayers at this point was looking in tremendous touch as he was going for big hits on each delivery. Arshdeep however had different plans as he initiated a magnificent comeback almost immediately. The next ball was a bit short by arshdeep which took an edge of Mayer’s gloves and was caught behind by Sanju Samson. Following this brilliant piece of bowling by Arshdeep, India managed to send back a dangerous looking Kyle Mayers just for 17.
West Indies eventually managed to put up a total of 178/8 in their registered 20 overs. Shimron Hetmyer was the top scorer for his side with 61 off 39 balls. India who are trailing the series 1-2 currently will need to chase the total down in order to stay alive in the series
