Chasing a competitive target of 179, the Shane Watson-led side overhauled the target inside 15.1 overs with 29 balls to spare. Riding upon the huge 131-run stand between Watson and Alex Doolan, the Australia Legends didn’t just register their second win in a row but also improved their net run rate.

Rain might have played spoilsport in the last two days as four out of five matches of the Dehradun leg were washed out due to incessant rain. But the cricket fans were entertained to the fullest as batters entertained them in the first match of the doubleheader on Sunday.

It was raining sixes all through the Australian innings as their captain Shane Watson smashed 88 off 50 deliveries while his opening partner Alex Doolan scored 56 off 30 balls. A total of 18 sixes were hit in the Aussie innings out of which Watson hammered nine while Doolan smashed 6 of them.

The batters provided wholesome entertainment to the spectators and kept dealing in boundaries and sixes. Watson and Doolan’s blitzkrieg made the run chase look ridiculously easy for Aussie and the Men In Yellow overhauled the target convincingly. It was West Indies’ first loss in 5 matches and was a nightmarish evening for their bowlers.

Earlier in the day, after winning the toss West Indies Legends captain Kirk Edwards elected to bat first but there wasn’t much bounce on the offer due to the dampness on the surface. The Men in Maroon ended up posting 178 for six in the 20 overs.

The Windies Legends, however, were off to a fine start in the powerplay as the opening pair of Dwayne Smith and William Perkins shared a stand of 34 runs. Perkins was trapped in front by medium pacer Nathan Readerdon in the fourth over but Smith – who has been the leading run-scorer in the tournament – once again unleashed his beast mode and targetted Australian bowlers all around the park.

The right-handed batter, Smith, hammered 33-ball 65 before off-spinner Bryce McGain ended his innings. His innings was studded with six boundaries and four maximums and West Indies were 98 when the former cricketer departed. He had, however, provided a good platform for the batters.

Having sent Smith back into the dugout, Aussie bowlers took a sigh of relief. Narsingh Deonarine (28 off 25) and skipper Edwards (46 off 33 balls) played some good hands in the second half of the innings. But once they were dismissed, Aussie bowlers came back strongly to prevent WI batters from posting more than 200. Dirk Nannes (2/32) and McGain (3/23) picked up the wickets at regular intervals for Australia Legends.

The season has been tough for the Shane Watson-led side. They’ve played two games, winning one against Bangladesh and losing the other.  After South Africa, this will be Australia’s next major opponent. Therefore, Australia’s performance versus the West Indies is crucial.

With two victories in their first four games, the Caribbean team has so far played well. Rain caused their other two matches to be abandoned. If they defeat Australia, they will pass India in the point standings that are at the top.
