West Indies vs Australia Highlights

Highlights of first match of Tri Series 2016 played between West Indies, South Africa and Australia. First match was played on 3rd June 2016 in West Indies that The Caribbeans won by 6 wickets with heroic performance of Kieron Pollard.

The first match if Indian Premier League 2016, was  low scorer as Mumbai Indians did not get any momentum and managed to make only 121 runs. With some power hitting from Harbajan Singh at the lower order, Mumbai Indians could reach to this small total.

Rising Pune Supergiants won their first ever encounter in IPL by 9 wickets. At Wankhede Stadium Mumbai, the first game of ninth edition of Indian Premier League started with first batting of Mumbai Indians.

The defending champions lost their first wicket on the 1st ball of the 2nd ball. They then could not manage their wickets and lost three quick wickets on the score of 29. Lendl Simmon, the world t20 semi final hero for West Indies, could manage only 8 runs on 8 balls and got bowled by big man, Ishant Sharma.

With a Sumerai kind hairstyle and beard, the 6 foot 5 inches right handed fast bowler was looking really impressive. He had great control over his line and length. His first 2 overs were impressive as he consumed only 12 runs of the first 2 but the remaining 2 came under the fearsome hitting of Harbajjan Singh. His figures ended up to 2 wickets for 36 runs with 9 dot balls.

Harbajjan Singh became a savior for Mumbai Indians as he scored quick fire 45 runs off 30 balls with 7 fours and 1 six. This helped defending champions to reach 121-7 in 20 overs.

West Indies vs Australia Highlights

It is the first ever edition of the RPS, the team owned by only 24 years old Indian business boy. With some star players like MS Dhoni, Ajinke Rehane, Ravichandan Ashwin and Kevin Peterson, the team looks pretty strong. And with captain cool to lead the team, it was their first ever game and they recorded it as a win.

 

121 looked pretty much easy for a strong batting line up of RPS. Ajinke Rehane and FAF Duplessis had steady but strong start. Both managed 78 runs for first wicket. Harbajjan broke the partnership on the 4 ball of the 10th over. Duplessis scored 34 runs off 33 balls before he fell a victim to a difficult ball by Bhajji.
