    Samuels, Bravo help WI level T20I series

    Aus lose by 14 runs despite half-century by DD’s David Warner

    By IPL desk
    Mumbai 31 March 2012
    Pune Warriors India’s Marlon Samuels took three wickets for 23 runs while Chennai Super Kings’ Dwayne Bravo put in an all-round performance (24-ball 23 and two for 27) as West Indies leveled the two-match T20I series against Australia 1-1.

    After winning the toss and opting to bat first, West Indies were put on course for a big total thanks to a blustery opening stand of 72 off just 6.4 overs between Dwayne Smith (34-ball 63) and Johnson Charles (21-ball 37). Australia, however, fought their way back into the contest after Charles was removed by Rajsathan Royals’ all-rounder Shane Watson (two for 26) in the seventh over. Kolkata Knight Riders’ Brett Lee took three for 23, while Mumbai Indians’ Clint McKay’s two wickets helped bowl out the hosts for 160 in 19.4 overs. Other than the openers, CSK’s Bravo was the only other double-digit scorer for the West Indies.

    Australia, powered by a run-a-ball 58 from Delhi Daredevils David Warner, seemed to be on course to comfortably chasing down the target set by their opponents. However, when Warner was run-out by a direct hit from Bravo, fielding at mid-on, in the 13th over, the tide turned in favour of the West Indies. Some tight bowling by the hosts, and the inability of the Australian middle order to match the asking rate, eventually resulted in the hosts keeping Australia down to 146 for nine in 20 overs.

    Marlon Samuels and Fidel Edwards took three wickets each, while Bravo had two wickets to show at the end of his four overs of bowling.
    Although Australia would be disappointed with the drawn series result, having comprehensively beaten the hosts by eight wickets in the first T20 game, captain Shane Watson being adjudged Player-of-the-Series gave them some consolation. The RR star hit 69 runs and was the most economical bowler (economy-rate 5.25 and three wickets) in the two-match series.

    Brief scores: West Indies
    160/10 in 19.4 overs (Dwayne Smith 63, Brett Lee 3/23) beat Australia 146/9 in 20.0 overs (David Warner 58, Dwayne Bravo 2-27, Marlon Samuels 3-23) by 14 runs

    Player-of-the-series: Shane Watson for his all-round performance; 69 runs at an average of 34.50 and 8-0-42-3
