- West Indies vs Australia 1st T20
- All-rounder Andre Russell’s bat roared
- Russell made the first fifty of his career
Gros Islet: West Indies’ strong all-rounder Andre Russell is one of those players who have the ability to play fireworks in times of crisis. Russell has once again shown his ability. He scored a blistering half-century in the first T20 against Australia at the Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet. He rained sixes during this. If Russell had not batted stormy, the team might not have been able to score a respectable score. Australia won the toss and decided to bowl first.
First fifty of Russell’s career
Andre Russell batted at number five and his bat roared a lot. He scored 51 runs in 28 balls with the help of 3 fours and 5 strong sixes. This is the first fifty of his T20 International career. Russell went into the 55th match and accomplished the feat of scoring the first fifty. Prior to this, his highest individual score in T20 Internationals was 47 runs, which he scored against Bangladesh in August 2018. He made his T20 debut against Pakistan in the year 2011. Let us tell you that Russell was out of the West Indies T20 team for several months. He recently made a comeback in the T20I series against South Africa.
Andre Russell made two important partnerships
The West Indies team, who came to bat first, had a bad start. Australian bowlers Mitchell Marsh and Joe Hazlewood dropped West Indies’ opening four wickets for a total of 65. In such a situation, Russell took the lead. He shared a crucial 36-run partnership for the fifth wicket with Shimron Hetmyer (20) and 36 for the sixth wicket with Fabian Allen. Russell returned to the pavilion as the sixth batsman. He was bowled by Heidelwood in the 20th over and made his victim. West Indies scored 146/6 thanks to his innings and then bundled out Australia for 127 in 16 overs to win by 18 runs.
