West Indies might not be without some of the big stars from yesteryears but they still have enough power hitters who can light up the upcoming T20 World Cup in Australia.
The Windies batters hit a total of six maximums in way to registering 145/9 at the Carrara Oval on Wednesday In 1st T20I against Australia. However, it didn’t enough for West indies.
Australia rode on Finch’s fifty and Wade’s unbeaten 39 to recover after early setbacks and win the game by three wickets.
Meanwhile, West Indies opener Kyle Mayers started the spree at the top of the order with a 103-meter six over covers, it was the big-hitting Odean Smith who made cricket look like baseball when he hit a monstrous 108-meter six that went high up in the air and went way into the stands
Smith hit three cracking boundaries also to score 27 runs in just 17 balls before getting run out. His innings gave a much-needed fillip to the West Indian total.
