Australian all-rounder Moises Henriques blamed the batsmen for the loss in the first three matches of the five-match T20I series against West Indies. He said that the batsmen of the team have disappointed in the ongoing limited overs series against West Indies. West Indies have taken an unassailable 3-0 lead in the ongoing five-match T20I series against Australia.
Henriques said, “The batsmen will be blamed because we are not able to score better, which helps the bowlers. I am also not able to score runs. This is where I also need to improve and see that.” That’s how we increase the pressure on them.”
He further said, “Windies have a lot of defensive bowlers in terms of stopping boundaries. Compared to them, our bowlers are a little more aggressive. Windies bowlers are a little more creative in taking wickets than in defence.”
The performance of Australian batsmen has been very poor in the series.
