AUS vs WI Team Previews
After a clean sweep of the ODI series, the Australians have a good chance of repeating that feat in the shortest format after defeating the visitors on Sunday.
David Warner, Josh Inglis, and Mitchell Marsh have got good starts in both matches so far, with Warner scoring a half-century in the opening fixture. Glenn Maxwell was in red-hot form on Sunday as he scored a scintillating century to propel the hosts to a match-winning total of 241 runs.
There is a chance that Fraser McGurk will make his T20 debut. That should be exciting because we know he is going to go at the bowlers from ball one.
He was well-supported by Tim David, who himself struck some lofty shots. In addition, the hosts can bank on the services of Marcus Stoinis and Matthew Wade, who add depth to the batting. Australia will yet again depend on the strong seam attack to pick up wickets.
Marcus Stoinis picked up 3 wickets in the last match to take his total tally to 5. He will be supported by Jason Behrendorff, Spencer Johnson, and Josh Hazlewood, while Adam Zampa remains the sole spinner.

Barring the win in the 2nd Test match last month, the trip hasn’t brought much joy to the West Indians. There were plenty of expectations from them in the 20-over format but the team has failed to live up to them. Nevertheless, as the trip draws to a conclusion, the West Indies will be playing for pride.
The visitors have batted well, breaching the 200-run mark in both the matches. Rovman Powell and Brandon King have got a half-century each and will once again be the key batsmen for the team. In addition, there are some specialist T20 batsmen in the squad like Nicholas Pooran, Shai Hope, and Johnson Charles, while all-rounders Sherfane Rutherford and Andre Russell add depth to the batting.
The bowling hasn’t been up to the mark and that will be something that can be improved. While Jason Holder, Alzarri Joseph, and Andre Russell have picked up 3 wickets each, they have given away runs at almost 10 runs or more per over.
Akeal Hosein is the lone specialist spinner on the squad and has remained wicketless so far.
