Australia Form

Australia’s poor form continued in the 2nd T20I against the West Indies as they went down by 56 runs in Gros Islet. 

The bowlers all struggled as the Windies went on to score 196 runs for the loss of just four wickets in 20 overs. Mitchell Starc’s form has gone completely off the rails as he went for over 12 to the over.

The run chase was never really on despite Mitchell Marsh’s 54 runs. The next highest score was 19 by Moises Henriques.

Australia Team News

Matthew Wade has struggled at the top of the order. There is pressure for Alex Carey to come in and fulfill the wicket-keeping duties.
