West Indies took on Zimbabwe in their group stage encounter of the 2022 T20 World Cup played at the Bellerive Oval, Hobart on October 19 (Wednesday). West Indies after opting to bat first put on a competitive total on the board. 

Meanwhile, West Indies opener Johnson Charles and Rovman Powell were involved in a hilarious run-out during the first innings of the match. It was Charles who had to walk back to the pavilion after he was well settled for his 45 off 36 balls and hitting three fours and two maximums. 

The incident occurred during the last ball of the 13th over

Speaking about the dismissal, it was Powell who was on the strike as he cut the ball towards the backward point and took a couple of steps forward before backing out for the single at the last moment. Charles, who was committed for the run, was already halfway on the pitch as he received no response from his batting partner.

As Charles looked to go back to the non-striker's end, he slipped and the fielder threw the ball towards Sean Williams who disturbed the stumps and sent Charles back to the pavillion. The right-handed batter didn't look much happy as he trudged back to the dressing room.

Speaking about the first innings, West Indies started well with the bat but Kyle Mayers departed after getting a start with the bat. However, Charles continued to bash the Zimbabwe bowlers.

Several West Indies batters including Evin Lewis (15 runs), Nicholas Pooran (seven runs), and Rovman Powell (28 runs) looked threatening, but they got out after playing some irresponsible shots. Akeal Hosein stroking 23 runs meant that the Men in Maroon cross the 150-run mark. For Zimbabwe, Sikandar Raza took three wickets.
