    The Australian peacekeepers demolished the West Indies victory series to claim a complete 133-meter DLS victory in the first One-Day International to be hit by a series of three races at the Kensington Oval in Barbados on Tuesday.

    After reserve captain Alex Carey drove from the front with a topscore 67 to raise his side to 252 for the first nine bats, only his Caribbean counterpart Kieron Pollard (56) stood firm against his fastest bowling alleys. was launched for 123 of 26.2 overs in response.

    Set a revised goal of 257 in a match reduced to 49 overs per side, the West Indies were reduced to 27 for six with starting bowlers Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood sharing the wins. It took Mitchell Mars, Australia’s only consistent performer in the previous 4-1 loss of the T20 International series in St. Lucia, to finish a 67 stoppage between Pollard and Alzarri Joseph.

    This breakthrough opened the door for Starc to finish the job with a five for 48 recovery that won him the Man of the Match Award. Hazlewood had an impressive three-for-11 return in his original blast and was not forced to return for a second period.

    “It was a very special effort for us with three debuts on the sidelines,” Starc said at the end of the race, acknowledging the first appearances in ODI colors for Australia by Josh Philippe and Ben McDermott, who appeared in an opening 51-match collaboration. , and Wes Agar fast-medium bowler. “We thought there was some variable bounce and a different rhythm from this pitch and it helped us a little bit.”

    The move came after stroller Hayden Walsh led the West Indies bowling effort with numbers five to 39, sparking a belated slide when he broke a 104-part fifth wicket partnership between Carey and Ashton Turner (49).

    “I thought our bowling alleys did a very good job of limiting Australia, given that the average score here is around 260,” said a repentant Pollard. “But to be brutal, I felt like we gave 20-25 tracks on the pitch. (On the flip side) I just want our kids to do a game. Just because the ball is rocking or moving, not just give it a soft kick. “

    Having decided to win first in the tournament win, it was Curry who also showed up at the time of the victory, took the grip on the second attempt behind the stumps to remove the Walsh of footballer Adam Zampa, who had earlier left the attack from Pollard.

    It remains to be seen whether appointed captain Aaron Finch will recover in time for the second game on Thursday at the same venue or whether Cary will be called up to continue his excellent captaincy debut.
