Good Evening! Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live cricket score and updates of the second T20I of the four-match series between Pakistan and West Indies at Port of Spain. I am Rohan Sawant, and I will be bringing all the live happenings from the social media universe as well as highlight the significant events of this crackerjack of a contest. However, given that I am a die-hard Younis Khan fan, I would have loved to see the 39-year-old warhorse play the shortest format. Those cover-drives, I tell you. I’d pay any amount to witness his flicks over the leg-side field. Anyway, given he does not play this format, my entertainment now relies on Babar Azam’s stunning batsmanship. Live cricket score: Pakistan vs West Indies, 2nd T20I
Pakistan thrashed West Indies in the first match. Their bowlers obliterated West Indies’ batting line-up and restricted them to 111 for 8. Leg-spinner Shadab Khan produced best figures by a debutant: 4-0-7-3. He got the better of opener Chadwick Walton, Lendl Simmons, and Sunil Narine. Meanwhile, left-arm orthodox Imad Wasim conceded only 12 runs off 3 overs, taking a wicket. However, pacer Wahab Riaz leaked as many as 35 runs off his four-over quota. As a result, it is evident that West Indies had trouble facing spinners. Given the fact, Pakistan will leave no stone unturned exploit their weakness and take an unassailable lead.
West Indies, however, have no option but to up the ante and put Pakistan on the back foot to stay on course in this series. Their batsman especially will have to play out of their skin if they are to keep Pakistan at bay. All the same, given they have top-drawer T20 players in the side, it will not come as a surprise if they stage a comeback.
