New Zealand vs West Indies | 'Brathwaite, Bishop, Almost Again' - Twitter Lauds Brathwaite's Heroics

New Zealand escaped by the skin of their teeth as they managed to deny West Indies and Carlos Brathwaite victory by five runs at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Bowling first, West Indies started with two wickets in the first over, courtesy two exceptional deliveries by Sheldon Cottrell. But Kane Williamson took charge of the innings and with the help of James Neesham and Colin de Grandhomme at the end, helped New Zealand post a competitive 291/8.

 

 

Trent Boult got things going for New Zealand with two quick wickets. But Chris Gayle and Shimron Hetmyer stitched together a 100-plus stand to put their side in charge. A massive middle-order collapse saw West Indies reeling but Carlos Brathwaite produced a breath-taking century but could manage to get his side over the line.
