WI vs AUS 4th T20I Match Preview
The West Indies have won the 5-match T20I series after a comprehensive win in the last game by 6 wickets. The home side is yet to lose a single game in this series so far. For the first time since 1995, the Windies have won a series against Australia. Their bowling has been fabulous and has won them 2 out of 3 games so far. Their batting department is also performing well compared to the last series. In the last game, the Universe boss finally joined the party after a string of low scores and played a brilliant knock of 67 runs from just 38 balls. Their skipper Nicholas Pooran is also slowly coming back to his best and played a good knock of 32* in the last game.
Their bowling was perfect in the last game. Hayden Walsh is continuing his dream run in this series so far and has been the highest wicket-taker in this series with 8 wickets under his belt. DJ Bravo and Obed McCoy also bowled very well in the last game and picked up a wicket each. Their skipper Pooran has hinted that the other guys will get the opportunities in the remaining games so we can expect a lot of changes going into this game.
The Aussies have lost the series and are yet to win a game on this tour. Their middle-order has been very poor in this series so far and will look to bring some improvements with the bat. Their bowlers have been decent so far but not good enough to win them games. Batting first in the last game, they managed to score just 141 runs from 20 overs. Aaron Finch played a decent knock of 30 runs but was very slow in his approach. In the middle-order, Henriques and Turner played decently and scored 33 and 24 runs respectively.
Talking about their bowling, Mitch Starc was very economical and also picked up a wicket which will be a huge positive for the team. Riley Meredith was a bit expensive but was very impressive as he picked up 3 wickets in his 1st game on this tour. The Aussies have lost the series but will play for their pride in the remaining two games and will look to avoid a whitewash.
