  • Australia’s thrashing of Bangladesh leaves them in pole position over South Africa in the race to join England in the T20 World Cup semi-finals, but victory here will likely be needed and a significant one which maintains a superior net-run-rate over the Proteas.
  • Mitchell Marsh was brought back into the side against Bangladesh and is likely to keep his place after scoring 16 not out from just 5 balls at number three in what should be an unchanged Australian line-up.


  • West Indies failed to chase down a target of 190 against Sri Lanka this past Thursday, losing by 20 runs which leaves them unable to reach the knockout stage having lost three of their four matches in the Super 12s.
  • With their elimination confirmed, the Windies may look to rotate their side, with captain Kieron Pollard possibly sitting out due to niggling injury, whilst all-rounder Dwayne Bravo will contest his final match before retiring from international cricket.


For Australia, the stakes are high and they cannot afford to slip against a West Indies team who have desperately underperformed over the course of the T20 World Cup. The reigning champions will likely be low on motivation for this contest and this could lead to slack performance, especially in the field when taking into account the hot conditions. Australia have a deep batting line-up and should capitalise should West Indies bowl as poorly as they did against Sri Lanka, whilst the Aussies have also benefitted from a well-balanced bowling attack throughout the competition. Ultimately Aaron Finch’s men have shown themselves to be an all-round better side than the West Indies across this T20 World Cup and should prove that in this match by securing an important win that will likely see them advance to the semi-finals.
