Twitter Reactions: Roston Chase and Shai Hope shine as Windies beat Afghanistan in smog-hit Lucknow

Posted On / /

Roston Chase and Shai Hope struck half-centuries to guide West Indies to a seven-wicket win over Afghanistan at the smog-hit Ekana Stadium in Lucknow on Wednesday.

Chase and Hope added a record 163-run partnership for the third wicket as the Windies reached the set target of 195 in 46.3 overs to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match ODI series.

Chase, who was promoted to bat up the order, scored 94 runs off 115 balls before he was cleaned up by off-spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman while opener Hope compiled an unbeaten 77.

Chase also took two wickets with his off-spin to help his side dismiss Afghanistan for 194 in their newly adopted home. India has been the home of the war-torn nation’s cricket team since 2015.

The air in Lucknow was classed as “very unhealthy” for the match, as the northern region of India has been in the grip of severe seasonal pollution.
