- West Indies vs Australia 2nd T20
- West Indies took a 2-0 lead in the series
- Captain Aaron Finch did not bat
A five match T20 series is being played between West Indies and Australia. Australia had to face defeat in the second consecutive match. West Indies won the first match by 18 runs while the second T20 by 56 runs. Australian captain Aaron Finch was heartbroken after losing one match after another. He looked quite disappointed after the second defeat. However, he also expressed hope of a comeback.
Finch himself opened his pole
Captain Finch went with Matthew Wade as an opener in both the matches, but did not manage to get the team off to a good start. Wade was dismissed for 33 in the first T20 and for zero in the second match. At the same time, Finch scored 4 runs in the first and 5 in the second. In such a situation, Finch opened his own pole. After the defeat in the second T20, he said, ‘The pitch did not change at all in the whole match. It was good enough. But when your two openers get out early, it puts a lot of pressure on the middle order.
This was the turning point of the second match
Finch also spoke on the turning point of the match. In his view, the 103-run partnership between left-arm Shimrona Hetmyer (61) and right-arm Dwayne Bravo (47 not out) for the fourth wicket made the difference. Finch said, ‘The 100-plus run partnership between Hetmyer and Bravo made a big difference. It is always difficult to bowl to the left-right combination. We will try to make a good comeback. One needs to win all three matches to win the series. We will keep working hard.
What Captain Nicholas Pooran said
West Indies captain Nicholas Pooran looked elated after winning the second match. He thanked the coaches for being assigned the captain of the team. Pooran said, ‘Thank you to my coaches for giving me the opportunity to lead the team. I don’t have a good record in terms of winning the toss, but we wanted to bat first and get runs on the board. Batting was an issue, but the way the players played in the second match, I was very happy.
