Australian cricket team still have a mountain to climb in terms of approaching the game in T20Is. It is quite surprising to note that the five-time ODI World Cup champions are yet to win a coveted ICC T20I World Cup. Their recent form in T20Is hasn’t been good either.
They lost 5 games in their last six encounters. This literally goes to show that they are miles behind in competing with other teams. Earlier, they locked horns with T20I defending champions, West Indies in the five-match T20I series.
The Aussies managed to win only one game but lost the remaining encounters. The Caribbeans easily figured out a way to beat the Aussies with relative ease. They won the T20I series by 4-1. Meanwhile, the Aussies are here in Bangladesh for a short tour.
The short tour consists of five T20Is. All fixtures will be played at Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka. The tour began on August 3 and will come to an end on August 9. The first T20I took place on Tuesday and the game witnessed an unexpected incident.
Andrew Tye vomits on the field
Australian paceman Andrew Tye encountered a terrible ordeal during the T20I opener against Bangladesh. Coming out to bowl in the 19th over, Tye tried his best to keep the hosts in check with tight deliveries. He bowled quite well in his quota of 4 overs.
The right-arm fast bowler conceded only 22 runs and maintained an economy of less than 6 in the T20I game. Besides that, he also took a wicket to his name. Just after bowling the fifth ball of his last over, he unexpectedly vomited on the field which took us all by surprise.
The video clip is also being circulated on social media that shows Tye letting out stuff from his mouth. Talking about the game, Bangladesh posted just 131/7 in 20 overs. Shakib Al Hasan scored 36 off 33 balls including 3 fours.
