Scott Boland bowling average: Scott Boland 6/7 stats in Test cricket

West Indies and Australia are up against each other in the 2nd test of the 2-match series at the Adelaide Oval in Adelaide. The match is under the control of the Australian team, and they are on the verge of a victory, where Australian pacer Scott Boland bowled a terrific spell.

Australia started their 2nd innings with a very aggressive approach, where they planned to play the West Indies batters in the Twilight session. They declared their innings at 199-6 in just 31 overs, and the plan of the Australian side worked as well where they managed to get the early wickets.

Till the 5th over of the match, everything was going well for the West Indian side, but Scott Boland turned the tides in the 6th over of the match. He bowled a maiden 3-wicket where he scalped the wickets of Kraigg Brathwaite, Shamarh Brooks and Jermaine Blackwood in the very same over.

Boland has been a sensation for the Australian test team since his debut at his home ground at the MCG last year in the Ashes. He scalped 7 wickets in his very first match, which included a 6-wicket haul in the 2nd innings. Boland just did not stop, and he finished the Ashes with 18 wickets in 3 matches at an average of 9.55.

It is interesting that this is Boland’s first match since the last Ashes as Australia played test series in Pakistan and Sri Lanka, where they played with a spin-heavy approach. However, even upon his return, Boland has proved why he is one of the best red-ball bowlers around the country.
