A few days ago, the history-making West Indies team had to face defeat in this match at the Gaba. The conditions were so bad that the 11 batsmen together managed to score only 86 runs on the board.

A week ago, the new West Indies team defeated Australia at the Gaba ground, considered its fortress. West Indies beat Australia and won a Test match there after 27 years. But then the format changed. Now West Indies had to face world champion Australia in ODI format.

Australia made up for the defeat at the Gabba by defeating the West Indies in the first two matches of the series. Australia won the 3-match series before the third match.

In this match, Australian captain Steve Smith won the toss and asked West Indies to bat first. And then what happened on the field was something no one could have imagined. A few days ago, the history-making West Indies team was defeated in this match at the Gabba. The conditions were so bad that the 11 batsmen together managed to score only 86 runs on the board. 4 out of 10 wickets were not even opened. Alick Athanaj (32) was the only batsman to score more than 20 runs. Some of the rest were dismissed for 8, some for 10 and some for 12 runs.

No senior fast bowler was playing from Australia in this match. Neither Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc nor Jos Hazlewood were in the squad. Xavier Bartlett, who recently made his debut, took 4 wickets in this match. Adam Zampa and Lance Morris took 2 wickets each. No one thought that such a situation would happen after the form of the West Indies team, which was in the news recently, changed. When the Australian team came to bat, they had already won after 7 overs. West Indies lost the series 3-0..

The West Indies team has been struggling in cricket for a long time. Did not qualify for the main event of the first T20 World Cup. Then the World Cup 2023 qualified itself out. West Indies have seen it all in the last few years. The team that has won two ODI World Cups and two T20 World Cups is currently finding it difficult to get sponsors for its jerseys. But the Gabba Test win against Australia was a small ray of hope for them. However, the West Indies team is in doubt after being swept in the ODI series.
