Shimron Hetmyer and Dwayne Bravo’s partnership helped the West Indies seal a 56-run victory over Australia in the second Twenty20 international in St Lucia on Saturday.
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.
Scorecard and ball-by-ball commentary
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 was 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.
“We just said we were going to do the same things we did last night, even a little better. It was fantastic to see how Hetmyer responded,” said West Indies’ stand-in skipper Nicholas Pooran.
