Despite a challenging track that restricted fluent stroke play, Suryakumar Yadav emerged as India's beacon of hope, managing to post a commendable 61 off 45 balls. His innings, comprising four boundaries and three maximums, were marked by his ability to find gaps and maintain a steady run rate when wickets were tumbling around him.

West Indies' Sensible Approach

Collecting 107 runs for the second wicket, they strategically tackled the Indian bowlers, ensuring minimal risks and maintaining a calm approach even during tense moments.

The Caribbean bowlers, especially the spinners, exploited the pitch conditions effectively. On a surface that seemed to favour spinners, Akeal Hosein (2/24) and Roston Chase (1/25) executed their skills perfectly. Together, they tightened the noose around the Indian batters, giving away just 49 runs in their combined eight overs, thereby halting India's momentum.

King's Match-Winning Performance

Brandon King's knock was nothing short of spectacular. Rising to the occasion, he scored an unbeaten 85 off 55 balls. His innings, peppered with boundaries and maximums, ensured that the West Indies stayed on course. With every shot, he displayed sheer class and played a pivotal role in the Caribbean's comfortable chase.

Indian Bowlers' Struggle

Apart from Kuldeep Yadav, who rendered a decent spell, the Indian bowling lineup struggled to find a rhythm. Yuzvendra Chahal, in particular, had a day he'd want to forget soon, leaking 51 runs in his quota of four overs. Despite having a strong bowling lineup on paper, India seemed to lack the clinical edge on the field.

While Suryakumar shone bright, the rest of the Indian batters couldn't make significant contributions. Even players known for their explosive batting like Hardik Pandya and Sanju Samson couldn't leave a mark, with Pandya's slow 14 off 18 balls reflecting India's challenges on the pitch.

Both Akeal Hosein and Roston Chase proved to be the linchpins in West Indies' bowling strategy. Their combined spell of eight overs for just 49 runs not only curtailed India's run-scoring but also increased the pressure, leading to crucial wickets at vital junctures of the game.

Conclusion

The 5th T20I was a testament to the unpredictable nature of the T20 format. While India had its moments, the West Indies capitalized when it mattered the most. Both teams showcased moments of brilliance throughout the series, making it a treat for cricket enthusiasts. With the conclusion of this series, both teams will reflect on their performances and gear up for their upcoming challenges.
