The 5-match T20I series between West Indies and Australia is set to kick off at Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet, St Lucia on July 10 at 5 AM IST. West Indies is set to host Australia in a 5 match T20I series followed by 3 match ODI series. The Caribbean side walk in having lost the T20I series 3-2 against South Africa and hence will look forward to prove their worth in the upcoming series against Australia. The Aussies on the other hand walk in with a slightly inexperienced squad and will hope to give a tough fight to hosts.
Coming into the series having suffered a narrow 3-2 loss against Proteas, the Kieron Pollard-led side will aim to make the most of this series. Key batsmen Evin Lewis, Lendl Simmons and Kieron Pollard would be the top picks from the Caribbean side. Additionally, power-hitter Andre Russell should be a must have in one’s fantasy team. Holder and Bravo can further fetch some good points from the bowling end.
Meanwhile, Aaron Finch–led Australia will aim to be at par with the defending champions of the T20 world cup in the upcoming T20I series. Given that it’s a slightly inexperienced squad, Aussie skipper Aaron Finch will be the key player and should be a part of one’s fantasy team. Other good picks from the Australian side could be wicketkeeper-batsman Mathew Wade and Mitchell Starc.
