West Indies are set to face off against England in the second T20 game of the 5-Match series. The WI vs ENG encounter will take place at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown. West Indies proved that they are always hard to beat at home. With complete bowling dominance, they bowled out England for just 104 runs and then Brandon King’s calculative half-century sealed the game for the hosts. They did the right thing by opting to field first and the bowlers didn’t disappoint their captain. They are leading the series 1-0 and will be hoping to keep the same momentum going in the 2nd T20I as well.
England, on the other hand, took the West Indies lightly and it backfired, as they lost the first T20I badly by 9 wickets with 17 balls to spare. They lost 4 wickets inside the powerplay, which affected them a lot in setting a huge target. The pressure is on skipper Eoin Morgan who has more things to prove in this series.
