ICC World T20 2014: Australia lost their nerve against West Indies, says Darren Lehmann
Australian coach Darren Lehmann speaks to CA TV after his side were edged out in a thrilling encounter against the West Indies by six wickets at Dhaka.
Lehmann feels that Australia lost their nerves in the fag end of the game which resulted in Darren Sammy smashing home two huge sixes of James Faulkner thus winning the game for the West Indies in the process.
Sammy remained unbeaten on 34. He smashed 19 runs off Mitchell Starc in the penultimate over of the game helping West Indies snatch a win from Australia’s hands. The captain hit consecutive sixes off James Faulkner in the last over to seal an exciting game for his side.
It all came down to the final over of the game, with the West Indies needing 12 runs off six balls. Faulkner started off well with two dot balls, but Sammy spoiled the Australian moods as the next two deliveries were sent out of the park.
The West Indies’ skipper faced 13 balls, hit three sixes and two boundaries, and remained unbeaten on 34.
