Fabian Allen faced three mighty sixes in the 19th to help the West Indies win against Sri Lanka in their third Twenty20 international game.
In the hunt for Sri Lanka’s modest 131: 4, the West Indies were again restricted by Sri Lanka’s spin attack, reaching 105: 7 18th place and required 27 runs with 18 balls.
Captain Jason Holder, cool and with a plan in mind, blocked the 18th, the last of the dangerous weirdo Wanindudu Hasaranga, except for a six after a free kick, which helped break the growing tension.
With 20 runs from the last two overs, Allen hit six from the first, third and final balls of Akila Dananjaya’s 19th overs to the West Indies with an over home bring to the series 2-1. To win a SCORECARD
Allen hit 21 runs with six balls and took 1-13 of four overs to earn the Player of the Game award. He said there was no panic in the dressing room in the West Indies, even if the biggest thugs didn’t fire.
« I told Jason Holder that I didn’t like hitting Hasaranga. So I told him, I want him to knock him out and I’ll be done. «
» In the end I just supported myself. It was a good performance overall. » The match was another low-scoring chapter in a low-scoring series in which all three games were played on spin-friendly fields in Coolidge. In the first game, the West Indies scored 134-6 to overtake Sri Lanka’s 131-9. In the second round, Sri Lanka’s 160-6 was too good for the home team, who all fell to 117.
For the third time in a row, Sri Lanka decided to win the litter on Sunday. The supreme order came to a standstill and Sri Lanka had to be constantly reset or rebuilt. After 10 overs, the tourists were only 46-4 and were under pressure to bet a challenging amount. READ:
