WI vs AUS Dream11: The West Indies are bossing it on the field against Australia, as they have now won two straight games on the bounce. A win in the third T20I could seal the series in favor of the hosts. The West Indies posted a daunting target of 197 in the first innings. Australia failed to impress in the run chase as they got bundled out for 140, while, falling short of 56 runs. That being said, it will be interesting to see if the Aussies opt for a change in personnel, as well as a change in approach. Here are a few key players from both ends who can have a major influence in the third T20I.
Hayden Walsh Jr. has been a major thorn to Australia’s batting department in the first two T20Is. The wrist spinner has bagged six wickets from the two games, while, conceding less then 30 runs respectively. Hayden can bag big wickets at crucial intervals, and can also restrict the run flow.

2. Mitchell Marsh
Mitch Marsh is having a terrific comeback series, and has been the rare standout for Australia. The specialist all rounder has now scored two consecutive fifties, and has also picked up four wickets with the ball in hand. Marsh’s purple patch makes him a must in the Fantasy Team.
3. Andre Russell
Regarded as one of the most destructive T20 batman of all time, Andre Russell has to make the list. Russell scored a vital 51 of 28 deliveries in the first T20I, which was followed up by a breezy 24* of 8 balls. Other than that, he has also proved to be handy with the ball by scalping two wickets from two games.

4. Josh Hazlewood
Josh Hazlewood has a whole lot of responsibility to be amongst the wickets, especially with Mitchell Starc’s dip in form. Hazlewood has impressed in white ball cricket as well, and can pose a threat to the Windies batsman. The premium fast bowler has scalped four wickets from the last two T20Is for Australia.
