AUS vs WI 2022 Test Match – Here is What Happened:

The whole west indies batting line-up was bundled out for 214 runs in 70 overs. Mitchell Starc and Michael Neser picked up two wickets while the spinner Nathan Lyon had three.

Australia secured a massive 297-run lead and could easily force the follow on. However, they chose to bat again as they wanted West Indies to bat last.

In their second innings, the Australians batted quickly in an attempt to set up a big target and leave enough time in the game to dismiss the West Indies in their last innings.

All the Australian batters for the starts but none of them crossed 50. Khawaja was the top scorer with 45 runs while Travis Head remained not out on 38 from 27 balls. Australia declared at 199/6, setting West Indies an impossible 497 runs to chase.

West Indies had a terrible start to their chase as Scott Boland broke their back with three wickets in one over. West Indies were reduced to 15/3 in the sixth over of their chase. Wickets kept on falling as none of the West Indian batters stood up to the pace of the Australians.

West Indies got all out for only 77 runs as Australia won the match by 419 runs. All three fast bowlers picked up three wickets each while Nathan Lyon picked up the remining one.

AUS vs WI 2022 Test Match – What is Test Match?

Test cricket is a form of first-class cricket played at international level between teams representing full member countries of the International Cricket Council (ICC).

A match consists of four innings (two per team) and is scheduled to last for up to five days. In the past, some Test matches had no time limit and were called Timeless Tests. The term “test match” was originally coined in 1861–62 but in a different context.

Test cricket did not become an officially recognised format until the 1890s, but many international matches since 1877 have been retrospectively awarded Test status.

The first such match took place at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) in March 1877 between teams which were then known as a Combined Australian XI and James Lillywhite’s XI, the latter a team of visiting English professionals.

Matches between Australia and England were first called “test matches” in 1892. The first definitive list of retrospective Tests was written by South Australian journalist Clarence P. Moody two years later and, by the end of the century, had gained acceptance. There are now twelve full ICC member countries playing Test cricket. Day/night Tests were permitted by the ICC in 2012 and the first day/night match was between Australia and New Zealand at the Adelaide Oval in November 2015.
