West Indies shatters these massive records against Afghanistan in the T 20 world Cup

The West Indies showed amazing skill in hitting big shots during their last Group C game in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup on Monday, June 17 (local time) in Saint Lucia. As the co-hosts, they scored their highest team total ever in the tournament. It was a day of breaking records for the West Indies, as they tied the record for most runs in an over in the T20 World Cup (36), hit the highest score in the first six overs of the game in the tournament’s history (92), and later reached the joint-fourth highest team score in the tournament.

Nicholas Pooran played really well for the West Indies. He almost scored a hundred but got out on 98 because of a run out. Pooran had big partnerships with Johnson Charles, Shai Hope, and captain Rovman Powell, which helped the West Indies reach a big score of 218 runs. Afghanistan’s captain, Rashid Khan, decided to bowl first after winning the toss.

After playing on slower surfaces in Guyana and Trinidad, the West Indies team showed their strength and aggression, reminding everyone of their potential in the upcoming Super 8 matches. They ended the group stage with a strong performance at the crowded Daren Samy National Stadium in Gros Islet. None of Afghanistan’s bowlers, including their top wicket-taker, Fazalhaq Farooqi, could make an impact. The West Indies fully used their strong and deep batting lineup.
