Clinical West Indies demolish Australia

0 62

Hetmyer scored 61 off 36 balls while Bravo remained unbeaten at 47. With this win, the West Indies lead 2-0 in the five-match series.

Australia’s Mitchell Marsh struck his second half-century in as many matches with a steady 54 but a batting collapse similar to the one in the opening game ensured Australia were bowled out for 140 in 19.2 overs chasing 197 for a win.

It marked the first time since 2010 that the team lost all 10 wickets in consecutive T20 matches.

Asked to bat first by Australia Skipper Aaron Finch, the host got off to a solid start with 46 runs in the Powerplay overs. Opening batsman Lendl Simmons blasted three sixes in his knock of 30 before Man-of-the-Match Hetmyer took over.
