While batting first, West Indies faced a setback. Opener Shai Hope was dismissed on a duck. Wicketkeeper Nicholas Pooran was dismissed scoring 1 run. Kyle Mayers scored 35 runs in 34 balls. They were in a crucial situation. Standing in that situation, Roston Chase scored a responsible half-century and played an innings of 52 runs in 42 balls. Andre Russell added 15 runs, at the end, they scored 135 in 20 overs. 

West Indies’ batting lineup failed to fight in the match. While talking about this, skipper Rovman Powell said, “Credit to the boys for fighting till the end. As a batting group this is a performance we want to forget, we didn’t bat well in the middle overs. We lost wickets in clusters and that always breaks the back of the batting team.”

Focusing on the Tournament and Thanking Fans:

Throughout the season, West Indies showcased their excellence. From playing some memorable knocks to some match-winning spells, they created some unforgettable memories. They host the tournament along with the USA. But this match changed the scenario. They were confident to defend the 135 runs but the rain changed the scenario.

While talking about this, Powell said, “It was a commendable effort, the boys believed they could defend 135. We haven’t won the World Cup or reached the semifinal but we have played some good cricket in the last 12 months.”

At the end, he thanked the fans and said, “There is a buzz among the supporters about West Indies cricket again and that is something we take away. We really appreciate the support we have got at various venues and the likes on social media.”
