International cricket returns to Kerala; This time it’s T20 Pooram

After a hiatus of two years, Kerala is ready to host another international game of cricket. This time again, the Sports Hub (Greenfield) in Karyavattam, Thiruvananthapuram, will host the competition. The strong West Indies will play against India in the T20 match. The fight is on the 20th of the next month. In the last international match, which was played on this course in 2019, India also met the West Indies. If Thiruvananthapuram hosts the India-West India T20 game again, it remains to be seen whether spectators will be allowed to enter the stadium. Especially when the country is afraid of Omikron‌.

The T20 India-West Indies game, which will be played on the 20th of next month, will be the fourth international cricket game to be played on the site. Previously, two T20 matches and an ODI were held in the Sports Hub. India won the ODIs and a T20I but lost the last T20I game against the West Indies. India has played twice against the West Indies and once against New Zealand on greenfield.

The first international cricket match to be played on this court was the T20 game between India and New Zealand on November 7, 2017. India won the throw and was voted bat. India was first to score 67/5 in the allotted 8 overs while New Zealand only managed 61 for 6 in 8 overs. The Indian Jaspreet Bumra was the man of the game.

The second game at this location was the ODI between India and the West Indies. Team India won the game on November 1, 2018 with 9 wickets. Batting first, India was thrown for 104 in 14.5 overs. Ravindra Jadeja from India, who won 4 wickets, was the man of the game.
