New Zealand’s Michael Bracewell takes a brilliant catch to dismiss West Indies’ Brandon King in the second one-day international

Before making an incredible dive to his right and making a spectacular catch, Michael Bracewell covered a lot of territory. The final score was 50 runs in favour of New Zealand.

In the second One-Day International (ODI) match between the two teams, which took place on Friday at Kensington Oval in Barbados and was interrupted by rain, New Zealand prevailed against West Indies by a score of 50 runs. It was a victory that the visitors really required given that they were down 1-0 in the best-of-three series before to this one. On the day of the match, Finn Allen was the team’s shining star, as he made 96 runs to lead the side to 212 total runs before it was bowled out. While everything was going on, another player, Michael Bracewell, stole the show not because of his batting or bowling but because of a spectacular catch he made throughout the game.

When Tim Southee’s delivery was struck to Bracewell’s right by West Indies hitter Brandon King, Bracewell was fielding at the mid-on position. Before making a fantastic dive to his right and making a stunning catch, the all-rounder from New Zealand covered a considerable deal of ground. The wicket of King was the third one to fall for the West Indies, and by the time he was out, they were in a desperate position at 21 for 3 after 7.4 overs.

In reference to the game itself, Southee and Trent Boult worked together to decimate the top-order batting for the West Indies, which led to New Zealand achieving a victory that levelled the series.

After Allen’s key knock for New Zealand, Southee and Boult took four and three wickets, respectively, to put West Indies at bay from the beginning of the latter’s innings. Allen’s knock was a crucial factor in New Zealand’s victory. In the meantime, both Mitchell Santner and Glenn Phillips were able to take a wicket for the visitors, which was a significant contribution.

The next match between the two teams is a one-day international (ODI) that will take place on August 21 at the same location. It is important to remember that New Zealand won the three-match Twenty20 International series that was played between the teams before the One-Day Internationals by a score of 2-1.
