Australia vs West Indies Predictions


Australia lost their last T20 series 4-1 away to India. However, despite that result, it shouldn’t affect their home form against a West Indies side that lacks confidence after the ODI series.

My best bet is for Josh Inglis to score 25+ runs.

  • Australia have lost 4 of their last 5 T20I matches.
  • Australia won the ODI series 3-0 against the West Indies.
  • Australia have won 4 of their last 5 T20I matches against the West Indies.
  • Australia’s Josh Inglis has scored 65 & 35* in 2 of his last 3 ODIs.
  • West Indies’ Nicholas Pooran has scored 30+ runs in 3 of his last 5 T20I innings.

Head to Head


Australia have a 4-1 lead in their last five T20I matches against the West Indies. They last played in 2022 where the Aussies won by 31 runs.

Australia Form


Australia come into this series full of confidence following their 3-0 drubbing of the West Indies in the ODI series. They were comfortable throughout and were hardly troubled by the visitors.

The Aussies last played T20 cricket directly after their ODI World Cup victory in India. They lost that series 4-1 to India.

However, back on home soil, the Australians will be confident of regaining some form, particularly with the T20 World Cup looming.

Australia Injuries & Team News


Mitchell Marsh takes over the armband for the T20 side with the side filled with experience. David Warner is back in the mix, as is Matthew Wade, Glenn Maxwell and Tim David.

West Indies Form


The West Indies have already achieved more than many thought they would on this tour by drawing the Test series. However, they were still seemingly celebrating during the ODI series with some woeful performances.

T20 is the format often most associated with the West Indies considering that they’ve already won a couple of World Cups in the format. That said, those days are behind them with some legends long retired.

If the ODI series is anything to go by, the West Indies won’t offer much threat. But we know enough to realise that the Windies could thrive on the 20-over format.

West Indies Injuries & Team News


Rovman Powell captains the side with many of the same players still involved. Nicholas Pooran is a massive addition to the squad with the wicketkeeper showing superb form in the International T20 League in recent weeks.

Verdict

I am backing Josh Inglis to score 25+ runs and to top score for the hosts.

For the West Indies, Nicholas Pooran has joined the squad and is in superb run scoring form.
