In the second T20I, Obed McCoy dedicates his player of the match award to his ailing mother

West Indies won the second Twenty20 International against India, tying the series at 1-1 at Warner Park in St. Kitts. Obed McCoy was named player of the match for his outstanding bowling performance, which began with him picking up Rohit Sharma on the opening delivery of the game. The left-arm seamer went on to take six wickets in the game, recording the greatest statistics ever by a West Indian bowler in T20 internationals with 6 for 17 in four overs.

McCoy, regarded as a T20 specialist, made his T20I debut in 2019 and has since played 18 games, taking 29 wickets at an average of 15.48. The 25-year-old West Indian has been bowling difficult overs, and a fifer against a top Indian batting team will boost his confidence. McCoy offered an impassioned statement after being named player of the match.

McCoy mentioned that he wishes to devote the unique occasion to his ailing mother, who has always inspired him to improve as a player. He explained his powerplay approach of going for wickets and admitted that he erred in the previous game due to overthinking. He was overjoyed with the experience and difficulties that had just emerged.

The series is tied at 1-1 with three games remaining, with the third T20I between India and the West Indies taking place on August 2 at Warner Park in St. Kitts.
