In the post-match press conference, the 24-year-old Hope revealed how he managed to hit the in-form Umesh Yadav for a boundary on the last ball of the match. Chasing 322 to win at the start of innings and 5 off the last ball, Hope cut India seamer Umesh Yadav for a boundary through point to level the scores.

He said that his aim was to just put bat to ball in the last delivery and he second-guessed Umesh’s delivery correctly.

“Last ball I knew a wide yorker was coming at the end, and I had to get bat on the ball. I didn’t get enough bat but it was enough,” Hope said.

Hope hit only his second ODI century on Wednesday to help the Windies tie the match after India had put on an imposing 321 for six after opting to bat.
