WI vs AUS 3rd T20: Gayle fires, West Indies thrash Australia once again to seal series 3-0 – West Indies won by 6 wicket, Chris Gayle score 38 ball 67: The Universe Boss Chris Gayle led West Indies to the victory in third T20I against Australia to wrap up the series 3-0. Sent out to bowl first, West Indies held Australia to a total of 141/6 from their 20 overs and chased that target down with six wickets and 31 balls to spare.

WI beat AUS – Chris Gayle fires: Gayle blasted seven sixes and four fours as he raced to 67 off 38 to power the hosts to victory, becoming the first batter to score 14,000 T20 runs as he notched his 14th T20I half-century for West Indies.

The veteran came out to bat in the first over after Mitchell Starc (1/15) removed Andre Fletcher (4) early and took the game away from Australia from there.

He looked dangerous from the get-go, smacking Josh Hazlewood (0/33) for a six over long-on in the second over. He was particularly brutal against Adam Zampa (0/34), going past the 14,000-run milestone with a six off the spinner in the ninth over, before hitting him for three consecutive maximums in the 11th to raise his half-century.

He looked set to hit Riley Meredith (3/48) for a hat-trick of sixes in the 12th over as well, only to edge behind off the final ball.

WI beat AUS – Chris Gayle fires: Earlier, Australia enjoyed their most positive start of the series with the bat, with Aaron Finch and Matthew Wade putting on a 41-run stand before Obed McCoy (1/9) bowled the latter for 23.

The Australian innings failed to get going from there as the in-form Mitchell Marsh (9) was trapped in front by Fabian Allen (1/26) before Alex Carey (13) and Finch (30) fell to Hayden Walsh Jr (2/18) in the 12th over to leave the tourists at 80/4. Finch was caught spectacularly by Allen at deep mid-wicket, with the all-rounder diving acrobatically to take a catch originally spilled by Bravo.

Moises Henriques (33) and Ashton Turn (24) rebuilt the innings from there, but neither could up the run-rate, leaving West Indies with a gettable target.

WI vs AUS: The two teams next meet on Wednesday.

Chris Gayle was adjudged the ‘Player of the match‘ for his quickfire 67-run knock.

WI vs AUS 3rd T20 Live: The 3rd T20I between Australia and West Indies at Gros Islet, St Lucia is a make or break match, especially for the Kangaroos. A loss in the upcoming third clash would see Nicholas Pooran led West Indies to emerge as clear winners in the ongoing 5-match T20I series. Aaron Finch’s Australia had horrendously lost the first two matches against the Caribbean overseas. Currently, the hosts (West Indies) are up 2-0 in the 5-match T20I series.

In what could deal a further blow to Aaron Finch’s Australia, West Indies skipper Kieron Pollard is all set to come back having missed the first two matches with a hamstring injury. But Pollard in or not, Australia need to pull up its socks in the batting department. Poor opening and rushed shots have seen them crumble like cookies in the first two matches. If they had lost seven wickets for 38 runs in the 1st, they lost 7 wickets for 39 runs in the second.

WI vs AUS 3rd T20 Live: The only positive sign so far is Mitchell Marsh who has scored two half-centuries but they need other batsmen in the middle-order who can bat longer. Otherwise, the series will be lost in just three matches.
