Pitch : The pitch at Lucknow is overall good for batting but the wicket leaned towards the bowling throughout the series.
Afghanistan : Afghanistan have now lost three T20 internationals in a row since their 12-game winning streak in the format came to an end.
Set 165 to win the opening game of this series, they were never up with the run rate and eventually posted 134/9. Fareed Ahmad and Naveen-ul-Haq were expensive with the ball, while Ibrahim Zadran fell short with the bat. There are definitely candidates for changes if Afghanistan want to shuffle the pack.

West Indies : West Indies, on the back of a 3-0 whitewash in the ODI series, got off to a winning start in the T20I series as well. Batting first, they scored 164/5 in which Evin Lewis top-scored with 68. Afghanistan, in reply, was never in the game and lost by 30 runs which is a massive margin in the shortest format of the game. It’s been the story of the whole tour so far which is unlikely to experience a twist in the tale.
Brandon King and Hayden Walsh Jr made their T20i debuts last time out. With Nicholas Pooran suspended, Denesh Ramdin returned behind the stumps.
West Indies T20 Squad : Kieron Pollard (c), Nicholas Pooran, Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, Sherfane Rutherford, Brandon King, Fabian Allen, Jason Holder, Hayden Walsh Jr., Lendl Simmons, Khary Pierre, Sheldon Cottrell, Denesh Ramdin, Kesrick Williams, Alzarri Joseph.
