to 291/2 and victory

go 1-0 up and do so in style. They got into good positions while chasing similar targets during the world cup
as well, but kept losing wickets thanks to their heavily T20-inflected approach. shimron hetmyer
scored rapidly here, but his approach was calculated, and the decisiveness of his footwork and shot selection against spin, in particular, was breathtaking and astounding.
