IND vs WI 2022 | We didn’t hold our nerves in last couple of overs, admits Nicholas Pooran

The West Indies team, led by captain Nicholas Puran, admitted that they lost in the second ODI under pressure from the slog-overs. Axar Patel played well and took the game away from them. Puran said the batsmen did a great job and Shai Hope was terrific with his century in the second ODI.

While discussing the result of the match, West Indies captain Nicholas Puran said that the team could not contain its nervousness in the last couple of overs. 

“Definitely, last couple of overs we didn’t hold our nerves. Last 6 overs, we lost the game. We felt a spinner was easier to hit. We just needed one wicket to seal the game but Axar played really well,” Pooran said at the post-match presentation.

Recall that the West Indies team played its first game, and Shai Hope scored one of the best hits of his 100th ODI. In all, Hope scored 115 points and Nicholas Puran had 74 shots.  At the end of the game, these two West Indies players posted a combined score of 311/6.

“His (Hope’s) 100th ODI, he was exceptional to get a hundred. We did an exceptional job with the batting group. We tried to compete really hard. We want to win really bad,” he opined.
