Hetmyer Hits 61 in 39 balls; Hope 45 in 29

Florida, 12 August: Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope played brilliantly for West Indies in the fourth T20I against India in Florida.

After winning the toss, West Indies chose to bat first and made 178/8 in the allotted 20 overs, thanks to two impressive knocks by Hetmyer and Hope.

Hetmyer made 61 runs in 39 balls.

Mayers and King again failed to lay a solid foundation but Shai Hope launched a counter offensive with a knock of 45 runs in 29 balls, laced with three fours and two sixes.

For India, Kuldeep Yadav bowled really well by taking two important wickets of Nicholas Pooran (1) and skipper Rovman Powell (1). Arshdeep Singh claimed wickets of opening batters Kyle Mayers (17) and Brandon King (18), and Shimron Hetmyer.

India would need to score 179 runs to level the five match series 2-2, with a game to go. In case West Indies denies India the victory in this match, they will win the 5-match T20I series.
