WI vs ENG: ‘Thought we got really good score’ says Moeen Ali on thrilling victory over West Indies;
West Indies skipper Kieron Pollard praised lower-order hitters Romario Shephard and Akeal Hosein for showing tremendous responsibility with the bat after a narrow one-run loss in the second T20I against England.
“He (Roy) was going well, I was just hanging on and trying to pick my areas. Was a tough surface to be honest. We thought we got a really good score. We just wanted to give us a few deliveries early on. Then with the ball, we started well. It’s a great wicket to bowl on. I thought me and Rash bowled well in those middle overs. I thought he (Rashid) read the surface really well,” said Moeen Ali after the game.
West Indies lost wickets at regular intervals when chasing 172, and it was only Romario Shephard and Akeal Hosein who showed some spark with the bat. With three fours and four sixes, Hosein hammered 44 runs off just 16 balls.
However, it was not enough in the end, as England won by a single run. Moeen Ali took three wickets for the visitors, while Adil Rashid took two.
