Share

WI Playing 11: The West Indies team will lock horns with the Australian team in their last fixture of T20 World Cup 2021. They would look to end the tournament on high by securing victory over the Australian team.

In the last fixture, the West Indies team lost to Sri Lanka by 20 runs. The team’s bowlers were average to give away 190 runs on the board, with Andre Russell picking 2 wickets. The team did not get off to a good start, with Gayle and Lewis getting dismissed for single digit scores. In the middle order, Nicholas Pooran (46) and Shimron Hetmyer (81) were terrific for the team, but the others could not get going to help the team in winning the match.


Team News

  • They will not be able to make it to the semifinals of the tournament.
  • No changes expected in the Team’s Playing 11 against Australia.

WI Playing 11 (likely)

The West Indies team will be disappointed with their efforts in the last fixture, where they failed to contain the opposition batters and score was way above par, even with the likes of Lewis and Pollard for the team. While, the team’s bowling has been ordinary, with Russell being the top performer for the last few matches.

The bowlers like Akeal Hossein and Ravi Rampaul need to take wickets to help the team’s cause. Additionally, the top order has been inconsistent while Pollard has not fired as well. The team can still put up a good fight against the Australian team in this fixture with the same set of players as of the last league match.
