Unchanged squad named for 2nd CG Insurance T20I v Australia
Following their sensational win over Australia on Friday night, West Indies announced an unchanged squad for the second CG Insurance Twenty20 International on Saturday night at the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground. The Cricket West Indies Selection Panel have named the same 14-member squad which they had for the opening contest.
Under the captaincy of Nicholas Pooran, in the absence of injured Kieron Pollard, West Indies were magnificent with the ball and in the field as they bowled out the Aussies for 127 off 16 overs to record a memorable victory by 18 runs. Left-arm seamer Obed McCoy was the star of the show with 4-26, which wrecked the run chase.
First ball in the second CG Insurance T20I is 7:30pm (6:30pm Jamaica Time).
This CG Insurance T20I Series forms part of the West Indies’ World Cup preparation with a total of 15 T20Is to be played across three months in the build-up to the ICC T20 World Cup to be played from October 17 to November 14 in the United Arab Emirates and Oman.
