The horrendous thump from Andre Russell, which assisted the West Indies with putting out an enormous total of 220/6 in 20 overs, refrained Australia from winning the third and last T20I match on Tuesday at Optus Arena. It was a salvage act from Russell, who scored his career-best knock of 71 off 29 against Australia, helping the West Indies win against the host team Australia by 37 runs.

After winning the toss, the West Indies chose to bat first, establishing an intimidating target for Australia to chase. West Indies’ batting assault, driven by Russell, exhibited a noteworthy batting show, with commitments from players like Sherfane Rutherford (67*) and Roston Pursue (37) individually.

Despite a productive beginning, with veteran opener David Warner making 81 from 49 balls, Australia’s chase was unsuccessful. Josh Inglis (1), Aaron Hardie (16), and Mitchell Marsh (17) failed to gather more scores for the team.

Eventually, it was the splendor of the West Indies bowlers that put the game in support of themselves. The West Indies bowlers Roston Pursue and Romario Shepherd figured out how to smother the Australian batsmen, confining them to 183/5 of every 20 overs. It was a merited triumph for the West Indies in the last game to hopefully finish off the series.
