The Probable Playing XIs 

West Indies would like to stick with the same XI as they have taken the lead in this series. Chris Gayle hasn’t looked in good form in the last couple of matches but the veteran would like to get another opportunity in this match. Kieron Pollard was injured in the last game so if he is fit then he will start in this match. In the bowling department, all bowlers bowled brilliantly in the last game so they will aim to continue their good run in this match as well.

Australia’s batting order looked unsettled in the last match as they didn’t make many partnerships except one between Wade and Marsh. The young batsman Joshua Phillipe needs to score runs in the middle order and the skipper needs to lead from the front. In the bowling department, Mitchell Starc had a bad day in the first game so he will aim to bounce back in this match.

West Indies: Even Lewis, Lendl Simmons, Chris Gayle, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran(c&wk), Andre Russell, Dwayne Bravo, Fabian Allen, Obed McCoy, Hayden Walsh, Fidel Edwards.

Australia: Aaron Finch (c), Matthew Wade(wk), Mitch Marsh, Josh Philippe, Moises Henriques, Ben McDermott, Dan Christian, Ashton Agar, Mitch Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood

Match Prediction 

West Indies have won the first match comfortably against visitors but in this match, Australia will aim to bounce back as their batsmen would get an idea about the average score on this pitch. However, by looking at the team’s strength and current form, West Indies will start as favorites. 

Fantasy Tips 

Batsmen: Lendl Simmons and Even Lewis will be the main batsmen for West Indies in this match. Aaron Finch and Josh Phillipe will be the best picks from Australia. Both the batsmen failed to score in the first match but they will aim to bounce back in this match. 

All-Rounders: Mitchell Marsh performed brilliantly in the first T20I match with both, bat and ball so he will be the main pick from the all-rounder’s section. Andre Russell scored fifty and Fabian Allen picked two wickets in the first match of the series. 

Wicket-Keeper: Matthew Wade looked in good touch in the first T20I of the series so he will be the best pick from the wicket-keeping section.

Bowlers: Josh Hazlewood picked three wickets in the first match so he will be an important option from the Australian team. Obed McCoy is consistently taking wickets and Dwayne Bravo also looked in good rhythm from the last couple of matches. 

Captaincy Choices
