Digicel Series

Aussies unchanged for Friday's match

Bridgetown, Barbados -- Australia have named an unchanged team for the second and final Twenty20 against the West Indies in Barbados. The tourists lead the series 1-0 after an eight wicket win in St Lucia on Tuesday.

If Australia win Friday’s game it’ll be the first T20 series victory overseas since beating New Zealand in 2005. Despite this, West Indies captain Darren Sammy believes his team can replicate Australia's efforts in the One-Dayers by levelling the two-match Twenty20 series in Barbados.

Sammy: Windies can still do it


BRIDGETOWN, BARBADOS - West Indies captain Darren Sammy is not only standing at the fore of his team in his capacity as skipper, but he is also standing behind them. Sammy, like all full-blooded West Indies fans believes that the boys have what it takes to retain the competitive edge that made them such a force to be reckoned within their heyday.

GROS ISLET, St Lucia, CMC — For all their heroics in masterminding a tied series with Australia in the just concluded Digicel One-Day Series, West Indies say they will be refocusing for the two-match Twenty20 contest bowling off on Tuesday.

Captain Darren Sammy said it was crucial his side make the transition to the shortest form of the game, though they had played outstandingly in the five-match ODI series to secure a share of the spoils.

Aussies need to find extra gear

GROS ISLET, St Lucia – It has been the recurring theme of the Digicel One-Day Series, but Australia simply must find another gear for Sunday’s final match against the West Indies.

The hosts took an unbeatable 2-1 lead in the five-match series with a Kieron Pollard-inspired victory in Friday fourthmatch, moving within a game of their first series win over Australia since 1995.

Sunday is like a "final" says Russell

With a 2-1 lead and one match to go, the Windies will chase another win to clinch the five-match Digicel ODI Series. Russell played a key role in Friday’s 42-run victory with a crucial 34 off 32 balls and two wickets.
