It seems that team west Indies has taken the proper revenge on the local team Sri Lanka. The Lions whitewashed West Indies in the ODI cricket and now, West Indies whitewashed Sri Lanka in the T20I series! It seems interesting. West Indies is travelling Sri Lanka right now. Or specifically, we can say that the dual tournament between Sri Lanka and West Indies has just finished. It is quite a successful tournament for both teams as we speak.
Earlier today, the 2nd T20I between Sri Lanka and West Indies took place. Reportedly, the guest team won the match by 7 wickets. Along with the victory, West Indies whitewashed Sri Lanka in the T20I series!
In the venue of Kandy named Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, the match started. The guest team West Indies won the toss and decided to bowl first. The local team Sri Lanka came to bat first at their familiar venue. Kusal Perera and Avishka Fernando opened their innings. They failed to make the opening partnership longer. Kusal scored 15 runs but Avishka Fernando added only 9 runs so far.
If we look at their batting statistics, Dasun Shanaka scored the highest 31 runs for the Lions. Angelo Mathews scored another 23 runs. Yes, the Lions played all 20 overs but scored only 155 runs. Losing six wickets they presented such scores in front of the guest team. The Lions played very destructive batting earlier but now they are suffering from the top-rated and experienced players in the squad.
The opening partnership of West Indies was also poor. Simmons and Brandon King opened their innings but Simmons scored only 9 runs. The rest four players played well. King added 43 runs but gone. Hetmyer and Andre Russell led the team to the victory. Russell added 40 runs in 14 balls and Hetmyer scored 43 runs in 42 balls so far.
