Only one team came up tonight. After the Pakistan game, one would have anticipated a greater batting performance from West Indies, especially at the top of the order. But it was worse, due to Nabi’s time with the new ball. 4 overs | 2 maidens | 2 runs | 3 wickets. Unbelievable bowling stats from the Afghanistan skipper after his team built 189 on the board on the strength of half-centuries from both the openers. Pooran and Chase scored 70 runs in 49 deliveries for the fourth wicket. The former received a respite on 4 and that assured him eventually putting some runs under his belt. Chase, however, spent substantial time out in the centre and racked up a 54-ball fifty. Russell battled during his stint at the crease, continued flailing his bat at everything and didn’t middle a single delivery before ultimately holing out. It was the perfect game for Afghanistan. West Indies, on the other hand, were scarcely competitive for the second time in as many games. Did they approach the warm-up fixtures lethargically or do the reigning champs have a few issues to address? We’ll find it out in due course. For now, it’s farewell..
