After losing the second T20 international, Rohit Sharma’s team India bounced back in fine style in the third match as they defeated West Indies by seven wickets in St.Kitts thanks to an incredible innings of 76 off 44 from Suryakumar Yadav. Chasing 165 for victory, the right-handed batter who again opened the innings, struck eight fours and four maximums as the Men in Blue reached the target comfortably in 19 overs.
Speaking about the final game of the West Indies leg, the hosts batted first and posted a competitive total courtesy of a career-best performance from opener Kyle Mayers, who scored 73 off 50, his second half-century in 12 T20I innings. All other batters chipped in with cameos of twenties to take their side’s total to above 160. Veteran seam bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the pick of the Indian bowlers with his spell of 2/35.
As mentioned above, Suryakumar Yadav looked in solid form as he helped India in taking a lead of 2-1 in the series. The action now moves to Lauderhill in Florida where the final two clashes are set to take place on August 6 and 7 respectively. With the series on the line, skipper Nicholas Pooran would look to square off the series 2-2 by again making a comeback as they did it previously after losing the opening fixture.
