West Indies opening batsman Shai Hope smashed a brilliant century to lift his side to a series whitewash over Afghanistan. The young batter calmly negotiated the spin barrage opted by the de facto home side as he punished the Afghan bowlers with the help of his solid technique.
He struck eight boundaries and three sixes during his patient 109 not out, effortlessly heralding his team's chase. The Caribbean side had got off to bad start in pursuit of the 250-run target with Mujeeb Ur Rahman dismissing Evin Lewis and Shimron Hetmyer cheaply.
Amidst the early damage, Hope dug in and set up an exquisite display of strokeplay. He had also starred in West Indies' victory in the series opener when he amassed a classy half-century. Hope's consistent batting heroics have made him a vital cog of the islanders' lineup.
