WI Playing 11: West Indies take on Australia for one final time in this T20I series to be played here at St. Lucia. The fate of the series has already been decided but with World T20 looming around, this is a great chance for both the teams to test some exciting players. West Indies have shown their T20 strength after losing their last series to South Africa. Big T20 players like Gayle, Russell and Bravo have stepped up in various situations to take the side home. In the head-to-head record in T20Is, West Indies leads Australia 9-6.
Nicholas Pooran (C) (wk)
West Indies has a powerful batting order with in-form Lendl Simmons at the top. Chris Gayle will look to finish the series on a high. With Pollard missing, the responsibility of middle order will be on talented Nicholas Pooran who has shown glimpses of his form. Andre Russell has had a superb series so far with the bat and has been in good hitting form. Bowling looks inexperienced but it is a great chance for the young boys to make a mark.
Kieron Pollard (C), Nicholas Pooran (VC) (wk), Fabian Allen, Dwayne Bravo, Sheldon Cottrell, Akeal Hosein, Andre Fletcher (wk), Chris Gayle, Kevin Sinclair, Evin Lewis, Andre Russell, Lendl Simmons, Oshane Thomas, Hayden Walsh Jr.
