The West Indies crickets to team chased down the target of 200 in the fourth innings on Sunday to register a 4-wicket win over hosts England in Southampton. Jason Holder and Co. stood against all the odds to prove that the current Windies team has the ability to beat any opposition in the world.
The Caribbean team played dominant cricket throughout the match, as they first restrict the England team on just 204 runs in first innings, courtesy Holder’s six-wicket haul. After tormenting England batting-line up, a collective effort from batsman helped Windies gain a tricky 114-run lead after first innings.
In the second innings, English batsmen displayed a fighting spirit to post 313 on the scoreboard. Windies team chasing a target of 200, lose some early wickets, but then Jermaine Blackwood played a career-defining knock of 95 to lead the visitors to an iconic 4-wicket win.
Good all-round performances by players from both teams.
