David Warner (75 off 41) smashed an incendiary half-century and Mitchell Starc (4/20) registered his greatest T20I figures as Australia beat West Indies by 31 runs on Friday to clinch the two-match sequence 2-0.
Regardless of the absence of some regulars, Australia reigned supreme and whitewashed the Males in Maroon. The Aaron Finch-led aspect gained the primary T20I by chasing down a complete of 146 whereas within the second T20I, they efficiently defended a goal of 179.
Starc pulls off an ‘unbelievable’ catch
Steaming in bowling to Kyle Mayers within the first over of West Indies’ run-chase on the Gabba, Starc took a superb one-handed catch after the big-hitting opener cracked the ball again down the pitch.
Regardless of the ball being hit in direction of Starc’s proper hand, the Australian pacer snaffled the catch together with his left hand, grabbing it with extremely fast reflexes.
Right here’s the video:
