West Indies bank on Shai Hope's hopeful unbeaten 82 to beat USA by nine wickets

West Indies put up a dominant show in the ongoing T20 World Cup's Super 8 stage clash to beat the USA by nine wickets on Friday.

After bowling out USA for 128 runs, West Indian batsmen reached 130 runs for the loss of one wicket with 55 balls remaining in hand.

Shai Hope's scintillating unbeaten 82 runs knock helped the hosts beat the co-hosts in the match which was seen closely as how US performs following strong show in the group stage.

In his innings, Hope smashed four boundaries and cleared the ropes eight times.

His innings ensured that the West Indies comfortably chased down the target of 128 in just 10.5 overs, improving their run-rate and keeping the chances of reaching the semi-final alive.

Harmeet Singh picked up the wicket of Johnson Charles (15).

Nicholas Pooran (27*) and Hope reached the target without losing any further wickets.

West Indies captain Rovman Powell's decision to bowl first proved helpful as the bowling attack, led by Roston Chase (3/19) and Andre Russell (3/31), restricted the USA to a modest total.

The USA's innings lacked momentum needed with Andries Gous top-scoring with 29.

Nitish Kumar (20), Milind Kumar (19), and Shadley van Schalkwyk (18) provided brief resistance.
