AUS vs WI 2nd T20I, Highlights: Unmissable video recap, turning points & more

In a gripping showdown at the Adelaide Oval, the West Indies stunned spectators once more, opting to field first against Australia in the second T20I. Jason Holder’s early dismissal of Josh Inglis set the tone, while Mitchell Marsh and David Warner contributed brief yet impactful cameos of 29 and 22 respectively. However, it was Glenn Maxwell who stole the spotlight, unleashing a flurry of boundaries to notch up a blistering fifty off just 25 deliveries.

Throughout his explosive innings, Maxwell took on the West Indies bowling attack with gusto, targeting nearly every bowler with relentless aggression. Partnering effectively with Marcus Stoinis, Maxwell dominated the scoring, with Stoinis falling victim to the pressure to accelerate. Tim David’s quickfire cameo of 31 runs off 14 balls further bolstered Australia’s formidable total.

Despite Alzarri Joseph’s relatively economical spell, the rest of the West Indian bowlers struggled to contain Maxwell’s onslaught, conceding runs at an alarming rate of over 10 runs per over. Maxwell’s unbeaten 120 off 55 deliveries, embellished with 12 boundaries and eight towering sixes, propelled Australia to a commanding total of 241 runs. With their bowlers facing an uphill battle against Maxwell’s relentless assault, the West Indies faced a daunting task as they prepared to chase down Australia’s imposing target in their quest for victory.

West Indies succumb to scoreboard pressure

In the aftermath of Maxwell’s onslaught, the Windies faced a daunting target, succumbing to scoreboard pressure during their run chase against Australia. Despite Johnson Charles and Nicholas Pooran’s spirited batting in the powerplay, their brisk starts fizzled out as four wickets fell early. Andre Russell and Rovman Powell provided some entertainment with his 63 of 36 deliveries, yet with the required run rate soaring, the outcome seemed inevitable.

Stoinis emerged as Australia’s standout bowler, claiming three crucial wickets on home turf. Josh Hazlewood and Spencer Johnson chipped in with two wickets each, while Jason Behrendorff and Adam Zampa claimed a wicket each. As the match unfolded, the Windies struggled to convert promising moments into substantial gains, ultimately falling short against a disciplined Australian side by 34 runs.
