The start of the second game of the 5-match T20I series between India and the West Indies was delayed twice due to luggage issues. The match, originally scheduled to commence at 8 pm IST start, was initially pushed back by two hours, and then delayed by another hour before eventually starting at 11 pm IST. It seemed even as the match began, not all Indian players had received their luggage on time as a number of Indian players were seen donning the jersey of Arshdeep Singh during the game.

Naturally, this triggered a number of crazy tweets from Indian fans. Suryakumar Yadav was seen wearing the jersey of Arshdeep Singh as he opened the batting alongside Rohit Sharma. Then, right-arm bowler Avesh Khan also wore Arshdeep’s jersey when India took to the field in the second innings. Thankfully, Arshdeep also wearing his own jersey.

The fans had fun on Twitter following the unusual scenes at Warner Park in Basseterre:

Earlier, West Indies evened the T20I with India after Obed McCoy skittled the visitors with his record spell of 6-17 in the second match. McCoy, a left-arm seamer, produced the best West Indies bowling figures in a T20I to help bowl out India for 138 in 19.4 overs.

West Indies made hard work of the chase in the end at 141-5 in the last over, three days after losing the first match by 68 runs. The five-match series is at 1-1 with the third game on Tuesday staying in Basseterre. The Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma defended giving main striker bowler Kumar only two overs, both in the powerplay.

Rohit Sharma said, “We know Bhuvneshwar, what he brings to the table, but if you don’t give an opportunity to Avesh or Arshdeep (Singh) you will never find out what it means to bowl at the death for India. They have done it in the IPL. (This is) just one game, those guys don’t need to panic. They need backing and opportunity.”
