A stellar batting performance by the Indian team saw the Windies sink to another embarrassing 71-run defeat in the second T20 International, hence losing the three-match series 0-2 on Tuesday in Lucknow. Such an abysmal performance has made the Windies captain Carlos Brathwaite admit that it is his team’s batting department that continues to be a major disappointment.
“Our batting continues to let us down. We got a young group of guys so we need to appreciate the positives, the small good things we did. We are still trying to find our best opening combination. We never got off to a good start in the first two games. It’s difficult to choose the perfect batting pair but we’re trying. We need to make the best decisions, we think. It didn’t work batting wise in these two games. Hopefully in the third game we’ll put up a better performance and come up with a win.”
India and the Windies square off in the third T20I, which will be held in Chennai on November 11.
