Australia and West Indies will face off in a Super 12 Group 1 clash at Abu Dhabi on Saturday. While Australia are pretty much in the race for a place in the final four, defending champions West Indies are sure of losing their crown and getting eliminated in this Round itself. Having said that, the Men in Maroon are a dangerous unit in this format of the game and their batting has not going at all so far but if it indeed fires in this match, it can ruin Australia's chance of making a progress.
This equation makes the match a pretty interesting one but in current form, Australia look to be the one with an advantage heading into this match.
Nicholas Pooran seems to be the rational choice for the fantasy pick from wicketkeepers since Matthew Wade will only have one skill of keeping to fetch points for the user as he comes down later in the order and is likely to get fewer deliveries to perform with the bat. Pooran faces more balls and hence should be in the team. David Warner and Aaron Finch from Australia as well as Shimron Hetmyer and Evin Lewis from West Indies are other batting options that could be considered on current form. Glenn Maxwell, Andre Russell, Jason Holder, Roston Chase are the all-round options who can be trusted within this match with the first three likely to get a priority preference and Chase being a high-risk option in this form of the game. Adam Zampa, Mitchell Starc, Akeal Hosein and Ravi Rampaul have been the most successful bowlers in the competition from both sides heading into this game.
