THE LOWDOWN

AUSTRALIA

Australia took the lead in the T20i series with a dominating performance batting first. David Warner led the way with 70 from 36 balls and Tim David’s big hitting down the order should also be mentioned, his 37 not out from just 17 balls helping to propel the Aussies to 213/7. This proved enough for victory, spin-bowler Adam Zampa taking advantage of the West Indies’ exceedingly high run-rate demands to take three wickets with the ball and help guide Australia to an 11-run win.

WEST INDIES

West Indies put up a much better fight in the opening T20i, compared to what they produced across the entire ODI series. However, it still wasn’t enough to overcome the hosts with the Windies bowlers again being dealt some heavy punishment. They can though, take positives from reaching the 200-mark in the run-chase, even though their eventual score of 202/8 was 11 runs light.

THE PREDICTION

Expect a similarly close encounter in Adelaide between these two nations. Cricket played in the T20 format suits this West Indies side with the likes of Nicholas Pooran and Andre Russell to name just two players capable of single-handedly tipping a match in the Windies’ favour. However, the superior bowling attack of Australia should again wind up what separates the two sides and lead Australia to another victory.

TIP: AUSTRALIA TO WIN
