Australia and West Indies had a terrific time, clashing in the third T20 match between Australia and the West Indies at the Perth Stadium. The Caribbean squad has shown a strong character in the game and has dominated the Aussies throughout the first innings. 

West Indies’ aggressive batter Andre Russell walked into bat after Rovman Powell’s dismissal. Russell’s strength was tested by the Aussie pacer Spencer Johnson as he bowled a sharp bouncer which went to hit the former’s gloves. Notably, it took a few minutes for Russell to adjust back to the game. 

However, Johnson was ready to break Russell’s concentration in the game and distract him with his striking deliveries. Russell immediately fell towards his back on the pitch and the physio ran on the field to help the West Indies all-rounder player. 

Watch: Spencer Johnson’s nasty delivery to break Andre Russell’s confidence

Spencer Johnson’s plans backfired as Andre Russell entered the field with an intent to dominate the Australian bowling attack. In the same over towards the end Russell smashed the ball for a four and six while giving Johnson a brief of his plans.  

Russell didn’t plan to spare Spencer Johnson for a sharp delivery throughout the match as he dominated his spells towards the end. However Johnson was successful to dismiss him towards the end of the innings as he took his wicket to send him back to the dugout in the 19.3 overs. 

Despite Spencer Johnson winning the battle by dismissing Andre Russell it was too late as the latter put 71 runs on the board on just 29 deliveries with a strike rate of 244.83. The damage was done as Russell smashed four boundaries and seven gigantic sixes. 

The West Indies squad put on a great show as they scored 220 runs at the loss of wickets in the 20 over. Against the Windies bowling, the Australian batting lineup had a tough time chasing the high target as they lost the game by 37 runs.
