After two ordinary batting outings in the recently concluded three-game T20I series against Ireland, West Indian opening batsman Lendl Simmons recorded a grand show in the last game of the series. Getting Ireland bundled out for a paltry total of 138 runs, the maroon jersey wanted to make a statement and Simmons was up to the task, allowing his unit to level the series.
Recording a spectacular knock, the aggressive batsman mustered 91 runs consuming only 40 balls. Doing so, he smashed 5 fours and 10 sixes to record his prowess and stayed unbeaten. Having delivered a powerful batting show, Simmons said that he is completely focused to do well in the forthcoming T20 World Cup.
The 34-year old cricketer shared disappointment regarding missing out on the last edition of the T20 World Cup, but sits hopeful to do well in the mega-event scheduled in Australia. Earlier, Simmons participated in the Bangabandhu Premier League, where he scored 293 runs in 9 matches whilst maintaining an average of 32.22 and a strike-rate of 130.63.
