The 5 match T20I series between West Indies and Australia is being clearly dominated by the hosts. West Indies lead the series 2-0 having comfortably won both the games against the inexperienced Australian side led by Aaron Finch. The 3rd T20 is set to kick off on July 13 at Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet, St Lucia. The Windies will aim to clinch the series by winning this game. However, Australia will fight hard to make a comeback and hope to keep the series alive.
Starting with a 2-game lead, the defending champions of the T20 World Cup have clearly looked the superior team in the series. Key batsmen Shimron Hetmyer and Lendl Simmons would be the top picks from from the Caribbean side given their performance in the last 2 games. Additionally, power-hitters Andre Russell and Chris Gayle can also be crucial picks in your team. Hayden Walsh and Bravo can further fetch some good points from the bowling end.
All-rounder Mitchell Marsh has performed the best for the Aussie side in the series and should be a must have in one’s fantasy team. Given that it’s a slightly inexperienced squad, Aussie skipper Aron Finch will have a big task on hand. Other picks from the Australian side could be wicketkeeper-batsman Mathew Wade, Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc.
