The bowlers of Pakistan pulled the game in vain as they finally won 7 races in the Second T20I Saturday, Nicholas Pooran’s knock went in vain.
The economic spell of Mohammad Hafeez left Pakistan on track to win the second T20I against West India but they won it in just seven runs.
Hafeez limited their left-handers in the first ten overviews with his disciplined bowling. Only six runs were allowed on four surfaces and the wicket was grabbed.
Pooran’s blazing winner 62 of 33 balls with 6 and 4 kept West India in a way that would overcome many of the inactivities, even before the final rounds were finished when a total of 20 runs were needed to revisit Pakistan’s 157 overall for 8.
But Shaheen Shah Afridi claimed Captain Kieron Pollard’s wicket and then refused the wild Pooran to swing free throughout the next three deliveries to guarantee that visitors were successful with guests held at 150 for four.
The West Indians, 47, in their inputs, were again rejected in their running chase, despite the excellent bowling effort of Mohammad Hafeez could not remove anything.
For Pakistan, each picked up a wicket from Hafeez, Afridi, Hasan Ali, and Mohammad Wasim. The man-of-the-match has been named Hafeez.
