WI vs AUS 4th T20I: 3 changes Aaron Finch led Australian team must address to prevent mire in upcoming clash against Windies: Though Nicholas Pooran-led West Indies have already sealed 5-match T20I series 3-0 against Aaron Finch’s Australia, the visitors would try to win the two matches left in the series and save their drowning face. It is indeed a series to forget for Kangaroos who have scripted some unwanted records in their ongoing clash against Windies. While the visitors were bundled in the first two clashes, they lent an easy chase for the visitors in the recent third T20I.
Here at InsideSport, we look at the issues that Aaron Finch-led Australian team can potentially address to up their sleeves in the remaining two matches.
WI vs AUS 4th T20I: Top, Middle order inconsistency
Barring Mitchell Marsh, who contributed two fifties in three matches, the remaining top and the middle order has been highly inconsistent. Even if the first match saw a promising start with the top-order batsmen, the middle-order failed to carry the momentum forward. The situation worsened in the second match where after a failure of opening batsmen, the Kangaroos saw the middle order fiasco.
Thus, Australia direly need to gear up with their current selection as any swap with the benched players is already risky owing to the zilch International experience they have.
WI vs AUS 4th T20I: Struggles against Windies spinners
Australia have a big task addressing their encounter against the West Indies spin attack comprising Hayden Walsh and Fabian Allen. The duo has jolted the visitors not just with their economical bowling but also with wicket-taking abilities. Windies disciplined spin duo has collectively picked 11 for 142 across 23 overs in the series so far. Thus, it is imperative for the Kangaroos to gear themselves against the spin attack.
WI vs AUS 4th T20I: Uneconimical death overs
While the third match didn’t even extend to the death overs, the preceding two saw an outpouring of runs from the Australian bowlers. In the first clash, the Aussies leaked 44 in the last four overs while the second match saw 61runs coming from the Caribbeans bat. Some disciplined bowling, especially at the death overs is a must for the Australian bowlers.
