Match Preview

West Indies and Australia will lock horns in a very exciting 2-match T20 Series. Both teams have got plenty of power hitters, who could destroy the opposition on any given day. The good news for Australia is that many of their players have returned from breaks or injuries. Meanwhile, West Indies have a revamped T20 side with the absence of stalwarts like Pollard, Gayle, Russell, and Narine. This T20 Series is a perfect audition for both teams and fine-tune their flaws before the all-important World Cup.

The 1st T20 will take place on 5th October. The match will start at 1:40 PM IST at the Canberra Oval in Queensland.
