After his winning spell against India in the second T20I of the five-game series, West Indian pacer Obed McCoy dedicated his Man of the Match award to his mother. A crushing spell from McCoy (6/17) and a fantastic half-century from Brandon King (68) propelled the West Indies to a five-wicket victory over India in Monday’s second T20I.

“This is for my mother. She is sick and she motivated me to become a better player. The first ball wicket put pressure on the batsmen. I always look for wickets in the power play. I went in with a clean mind “Last game I thought a bit too much. It gives me a challenge and I’m just grateful for all the experiences and the challenges,” McCoy said at the post-match presentation.

The five-match T20I series between the West Indies and India is currently at 1-1 with the third T20I to be played on Tuesday. The match starts at 9:30 PM instead of 8:00 PM.

The West Indies made a comeback in the second T20I, sacking the Men in Blue for just 138 points. McCoy ran through the Indian batting lineup with a great run of 6/17. Hardik Pandya (31), Ravindra Jadeja (27) and Rishabh Pant (24) played some serious blows for India.


The West Indies chased 139 and was 3/83 in 12.3 overs at one point, but half a century of Brandon King (68) and Devon Thomas (31*) took the hosts to a series-leveling win.

McCoy won the ‘Man of the Match’ award for his winning spell.
