For the better part of the second T20I in Barbados, England appeared to have brushed aside the hangover of their opening game defeat to West Indies before the ninth-wicket pair of Akeal Hosein and Romario Shepherd made the visitors pay for their feeble death bowling. Eoin Morgan’s men, though, did just about enough to eke out a one-run win and achieve series parity in the five-match rubber. Earlier, an England victory had seemed a foregone conclusion when West Indies, in reply to 171, slipped to 98 for 8 in the 16th over.
England hold on for the win… just.
But in the last five overs, Romario Shepherd and Akeal Hosein have been absolutely incredible for West Indies. What a fight! 👏👏👏
The T20 series is now squared at 1-1. #WIvENG pic.twitter.com/zlYkWnGX8S
