King leads west indies to t20 series win over india0

West Indies beat India by eight wickets on Sunday to win the T20 series 3-2. Brandon King’s 85 not out helped West Indies win.

Set a goal of 166 to win the fifth and final game in Lauderhill, Florida, West Indies met their goal with two overs to spare. Nicholas Pooran scored 47 runs in a partnership with King that added up to 107 runs.

The win gave the West Indies cricket team a boost of confidence after their one-day team failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time in their history last month.

“Adjectives don’t do justice to how we feel. It’s a long story. With everything going on, it’s a big deal for us to beat India at home, said West Indies captain Rovman Powell.

“On Saturday, after we lost badly, we sat down and talked. “We don’t just play to make ourselves happy; we play for the people,” he said.

King’s best score in a T20 international came from 55 balls with six sixes and five fours. He stayed focused even though a lightning warning caused the game to be put on hold for a while.

Shai Hope got things back on track after Tilak Varma got rid of Pooran with his second ball ever in international cricket. He did this by hitting a straight six off of Yashasvi Jaiswal, which sealed the win.

Suryakumar Yadav hit 61 runs to help India get to 165 for nine, and Romario Shepherd got 4-31 in his four overs. The West Indies’ bowling team did a much better job than on Saturday, when they lost by a large margin and the series is now tied at 2-2.

Odean Smith and Obed McCoy were replaced by off-spinner Roston Chase and fast bowler Alzarri Joseph, and the new team was more balanced and did a better job.

On Saturday, opening batsmen Jaiswal and Shubman Gill put together a 165-run combination that won the game. Both of them were quickly out of the game by left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein.

Chase caught and bowled Tilak Varma for 27 runs off 18 balls, but Yadav’s reply kept India’s hopes alive.

West Indies had to get 166 runs to win the series, and Shepherd took care of the lower middle order.

West Indies was up 2-0 in the series before India came back and won the last game on Sunday. India’s captain, Hardik Pandya, said they had time to fix their mistakes before the T20 World Cup in the Caribbean and the United States next June.

“It’s far away. The ODI World Cup is coming up, and sometimes it’s good to lose. “You learn a lot,” said Pandya. “And I want to single out all the boys. They were very good people. “We will make sure we learn from both winning and losing,” he said.

Tamim and logistical issues highlight bcb’s challenges0

According to the schedule for the Asia Cup that has been released by Bangladesh, the Tigers will play Sri Lanka in their first group encounter on August 31 in Kandy, which is located in Sri Lanka.

After that, they will have to travel to Lahore, which is located in Pakistan, in order to play Afghanistan two days later.

As one of the teams that will compete in matches in both Pakistan and Sri Lanka according to the hybrid format, Bangladesh will be given the opportunity to take use of chartered aircraft at no cost to them. Jalal Yunus, head of the cricket operations committee for the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), spoke with the media the day before yesterday and said that the board is aware of this so-called “traveling issue.”

“Immediately after playing our first game in Kandy, we will have to depart for Lahore. The situation is exactly as it is, and we are unable to change it in any way. The [Asian Cricket Council] ACC will be making the call. The trip will be made easier and more pleasant thanks to the provision of chartered planes by ACC. This system will apply to all of the teams who have games scheduled in more than one country. It is up to the ACC to handle this situation. Jalal made this statement to the media the other day: “Of course, we want the flights to be provided by reputable organizations.”

The competition is going to test Bangladesh’s mental toughness by requiring them to deal with a variety of logistical issues while maintaining their attention on the games itself.

In the event that Bangladesh advances to the Super Four level of competition, they would be given two more days to prepare for their match against Pakistan on September 6. After that, the group will have to make a hasty return to Colombo in preparation for their Super Four match on September 9, which will most likely be played against Sri Lanka. The Tigers, on the other hand, would get a few days off after that game before their last Super Four match, which would most likely take place on September 15 and be against India.

“Traveling thus much definitely presents some difficulties. Everyone is aware that in order to board a plane, they must check in at the airport two hours in advance with all of their belongings. There is also the problem of jet lag to consider. Therefore, this will result in a buildup of mental strain. Even though Pakistan is quite far away from Sri Lanka, we are obligated to comply with the decision of the ACC,” he said.

The problems that Bangladesh is facing are not confined to only those of a logistical nature. Even though Tamim Iqbal has come out of retirement to lead one-day internationals, his fitness is still an open issue. Tamim said yesterday in an interview given to local news sources that a lot of things from the repercussions of the retirement controversy would now rely on his meeting with the cricket operations committee chairman Jalal once he returns to the country. Tamim was referring to the meeting that will take place once he returns to the nation.

Jalal has been told by Tamim that he wants to return to the nation after his treatment in the UK by the 31st of July, despite the fact that the Asia Cup camp will begin on the 29th.

“Tamim’s trip to London is scheduled to take place on the 26th. Following the completion of his treatment there, a determination will be made depending on his current state. It is his intention to go back to the nation by the 31st of this month. on Tamim, Jalal said that the choice on the way ahead will be determined by his current state of health.

The Emerging Asia Cup lineup seemed to have as many as six openers lined up, indicating that the team management had been planning for backup possibilities for the starting spot. The management of the squad has already taken notice of the performances of a select few players, and either one or two of them will be included in the preparation camp for the Asia Cup.

“Players from the emerging squad are going to participate in the preliminary preparation camp. There are a good number of them that are thriving. There is a possibility that one or two of them may be selected for the preliminary squad, but there is no assurance that they will be among the top 15,” Jalal said.

The Bangla Tigers unit has also been through camp in Chattogram, but in the end, Jalal advised that players receiving the nod or being omitted would rely on the medical department because fitness takes priority ahead of the World Cup. This is because fitness takes precedence because fitness takes precedence ahead of the World Cup.
