AUS vs WI T20 World Cup 2021 Highlights: David Warner hit an unbeaten 89 off 56 balls as Australia clinched a massive eight-wicket win against West Indies in the Super 12 clash at the ongoing T20 World Cup. In response to West Indies' 157/7, Warner along with Aaron Finch got off to a brisk start, adding quick 33 runs in just 3.3 overs. After Finch's dismissal, Warner added a match-winning 124-run stand with Mitchell Marsh for the second wicket to help their side close the match in just 16.2 overs. Marsh scored 53 off 32 balls before he was dismissed by Chris Gayle. Meanwhile, after being invited to bat first, West Indies put up 157/7 in 20 overs. The team started off on a slow note, losing three wickets inside the powerplay overs adding 50 runs in the first six overs. However, some hitting by skipper Kieron Pollard, who scored 44 off 31 balls, and a late blitz by Andre Russell (18 off 7 balls) powered West Indies to a challenging total. Gayle and Dwayne Bravo failed to fire big, scoring 15 and 10 respectively. Catch the Highlights of Australia vs West Indies, T20 World Cup 2021:

    David Warner - Player of the Match 

    “It felt satisfying to be there and hitting the winning runs. The key was to come out and play my natural game, target the bowlers up front. Obviously the slow bowlers bowling with the new ball there needs to be some adjustment, especially with Akeal Hosein who was swinging it and hard to get away with. For me it is about targeting the first two balls of the over and Mitch Marsh coming in and playing that knock was outstanding. They (the bowlers) have been outstanding. Last game was clinical and tonight to come out and bowl the way they did, we knew they would come hard at us and would keep coming even if they lost three wickets, to restrict them to a competitive total was a good job. DJ has been the benchmark for all the players coming out of the Caribbean, Chris as well for all opening batters around the world, he sets a high standard and I look up to him.”

    Kieron Pollard: “Obviously these guys, all of us have done over the last decade or so for the T20 game is just amazing. It is unfortunate that we couldn't get that one last hurrah in terms of getting to the next phase of the tournament. But today is another opportunity, it will be emotional for some but the important thing is to try and win the cricket game to salvage something."

    How crucial will be Adam Zampa? 

    Adam Zampa has been a key player for Australia, picking five wickets to skittle Bangladesh for 73. The leg-spinner has so far claimed 10 victims in the tournament and the captain considers him a "huge weapon".

    "He's someone who's been so consistent over the last couple of years in both white ball formats of the game. He often bowls maybe sometimes one (over) in the powerplay but then he'll bowl straight after the powerplay. He puts so much pressure on opposition. What's been the most important thing is he gets very, very good players out consistently," said Finch about the spinner. 

  • Nov 06, 2021 02:44 PM IST

    Head-to-Head 

    Both the teams have met 16 times in the T20Is, with Australia winning six times. West Indies have won the remaining 10.

It's really important that we just go and stick to our guns, stick to our process because we know that's good enough when we get it right,” said Finch in an official ICC release.
