Opportunities are rare, but when they arise, it's crucial to seize them and maximize your potential. Shai Hope did a similar after replacing injured Brandon King at the top when he bludgeoned a hat trick of sixes after notching up a 26-ball fifty as West Indies and USA went loggerheads in Barbados.

The decision to field first panned out well for West Indies captain Rovamn Powell as their bowling brilliance folded the American unit for a paltry 128. In response, Shai Hope initiated a fierce assault with the bat inside the powerplay, racing to a 26-ball fifty. His batting mastery was further epitomized with three consecutive sixes in the ninth over that steered West Indies close to the finishing line.

With the scoreboard reflecting 75/1 in eight overs, one of USA’s two changes, Milind Kumar, was summoned with the ball in an attempt of a breakthrough. Having conceded just two four runs in three balls, the Delh-Born tested Hope with a half-tracker that the batter hammered over cow corner off the front foot. Milind, not learning his lesson, sprayed yet another short ball to get smacked over deep mid-wicket before a fuller widish delivery was sliced over deep extra cover by Hope. Eventually, this nature of torment from the 30-year-old assisted the two-time T20 World Cup champions in earning a huge NRR with a nine-wicket triumph, leaving the Twitterverse abuzz.
