- Host West Indies team won this T20 series 4-1
- Australia won only the fourth match in the series
West Indies beat Australia by 16 runs in the fifth and final T20I to win the five-match series 4-1. Batting first after winning the toss, West Indies scored 199 for eight. In reply, Australia’s team could only score 183 runs for nine wickets. In the series, West Indies batsmen played smoky innings and bowlers bowled killers. On the other hand, the Australian batsmen could not succeed much in leaving a mark. Although Australia may have lost the series, Mitchell Marsh became a ‘baazigar’ thanks to his brilliant performance. Australia captain Aaron Finch also heaped praise on Marsh.
Mitchell Marsh scored the most runs
After the defeat in the fifth T20, captain Aaron Finch said, ‘Mitchell Marsh did a great job batting for the first time at No. He also showed his excellence in bowling as well. Let us tell you that Marsh topped the list of batsmen who scored the most runs in the series. He scored a total of 219 runs while playing at number three. He scored three half-centuries. He was followed by Lindell Simmons, who scored 165 runs. At the same time, when it comes to bowling, Marsh remained second in terms of taking the most wickets in the series. West Indies’ Hayden Walsh took 12 wickets while Marsh took 8 wickets.
‘Our bowlers didn’t get support’
The Australian captain praised his team’s bowlers, but says that the batsmen did not get enough support. Finch said, ‘Our bowling was very suitable. But our bowlers did not get the support of the batsmen. There are many players in the team, who do not have much experience of playing international cricket and it is not easy either. I am not criticizing him. Finch also praised West Indies opener Evin Lewis (79 runs off 34 balls). Finch said, ‘Lewis played a great innings. It would have been nice to win, but we got to learn some positive things from this series.
