‘I would put this performance up there’ – Hayden Walsh toasts match-turning 3 for 23


Aaron Finch bemoans Australia’s lack of a calm head in the chase

Hayden Walsh Jr has put his performance in the opening T20I in St Lucia in the top tier of what he has achieved in his career after helping turn around a contest Australia “could have walked” in what has been a difficult year for him so far.
Legspinner Walsh had tested positive for Covid-19 on West Indies’ tour of Bangladesh at the start of the year and though he was able to return to action in February in the domestic one-day Super50 tournament, he struggled in taking seven wickets at 37.42 with an economy close to seven an over.

“Personally, it’s a sigh of relief,” Walsh told the host broadcaster. “I’ve been preparing for a long while. After my mishap in Bangladesh where I tested positive for Covid, I didn’t really have a good Super50 and I’m really happy that I’m just back. I would put this performance up there, probably one or two.”
