After getting knocked down in the first game of the three-match T20I series, West Indies recorded a sturdy performance in Thiruvananthapuram 20-over contest to level the series. India, after being invited to bat first, posted a healthy total of 170 runs on the board. Nevertheless, the Caribbean stars were found equal to the task to gun down the total inside 19 overs.
This obviously elated the West Indian skipper Kieron Pollard who is really pleased with the gutsy nature of his unit. Reviewing the performances in two matches against India, the 32-year old added that his players are responding well and confident to perform strongly in the decider, which is to be played in Mumbai on December 11.
Moreover, Pollard, the veteran of 104 ODIs and 67 T20Is, is clearly aware of the fact that West Indies is reeling at the 10th spot in the ICC team rankings. However, the belligerent striker is sanguine to fix all the issues and enter the next year’s T20 World Cup in Australia having all the angles covered.
