Following a match-winning spell against India in the second T20I of the five-match series, West Indies pacer Obed McCoy dedicated his Man of the Match award to his mother. A devastating spell from McCoy (6/17) and a brilliant half-century from Brandon King (68) propelled West Indies to a five-wicket win over India in the second T20I on Monday.

“It’s for my mom. She’s sick and she’s inspired me to be a better player. The first ball wicket put pressure on the batsmen. I always look for wickets in the powerplay. I went with a clear mind.” I was thinking a little bit in the last game. It gives me a challenge and I’m grateful for all the experience and the challenges,” McCoy said in a post-match presentation.

The five-match T20I series between West Indies and India is currently at 1-1 level, and the third T20I will be played on Tuesday. The match will start at 9:30 pm instead of 8 pm.

West Indies bounced back in the second T20I, bowling out the Men in Blue for just 138. McCoy ran through the Indian batting lineup with a fine spell of 6/17. Hardik Pandya (31), Ravindra Jadeja (27) and Rishabh Pant (24) played well for India.


Chasing 139, West Indies were at one point 3/83 in 12.3 overs, but half-centuries from Brandon King (68) and Devon Thomas (31*) propelled the hosts to a series-level victory.

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