Match Preview

Australia will face West Indies in Match 38 of ICC T20 World Cup 2021 on 6 November at Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium. In their previous match, Australia comprehensively outplayed Bangladesh. The Tigers were only bowled out for 73 runs, and the team won by eight wickets. Australia will be eager to pick up another victory and two valuable points in this match. The West Indies, on the other hand, had a dismal start to the tournament. Only one of the team’s four matches has resulted in a victory. They are looking forward to punching above their weight in this game and finishing their season on a high note.

Top 2 Wicket-Keeper picks

1) Matthew Wade – As he went from Test wicketkeeper to specialist middle-order batsman, the left-handed batsman’s career has been a journey of reinvention. Wade is recognised for his toughness and dedication, which can be seen in his past performances.

Matches – 153

Runs – 2976

Average – 26.33

2) Nicholas Pooran – In 2018, he had a huge career turning point with CWI-B in the Canada Global T20 League, which reintroduced him into the national picture. Pooran’s first major claim to fame came at the age of 16 in the 2013 CPL, where he was signed up for Trinidad Red Steel. He can also double as a wicket-keeper if necessary.

Matches – 205

Runs – 3834

Average – 24.42

Top 4 Batsman Picks

1) Evin Lewis – Evin Lewis had the resume of a superstar by the time the IPL 2018 auctions rolled around, with a reputation for belting massive sixes in a league that worships power-striking. He’d worked for a number of T20 franchises and had a solid track record.

Matches – 191

Runs – 5489

Average – 31.36

2) Shimron Hetmyer – He was selected by Guyana Amazon Warriors for the 2016 season of the CPL as an attacking and destructive opener. In April 2017, his promise and dedication paid off, and he was called up for national duty to play in a three-match Test series against Pakistan.

Matches – 121

Runs – 2312

Average – 25.40                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  3) David Warner – The left-handed batter remains a bowlers’ nightmare, and his newfound ability to bat long and deep into an innings is possibly his most valuable quality. Without a doubt, he will be a key player for Australia in the upcoming match.

Matches – 310

Runs – 10117

Average – 37.33

4) Aaron finch – He’s a hard-hitting top-of-the-order batter who’s known for his ability to close out games. He started off as a middle-order batsman, but he was frequently used as a floater, batting up the order for the team.

Matches – 328

Runs – 9966

Average – 34.36

Top 4 Bowler Picks

1) Mitchell Starc – Starc ripped through batting line-ups at a rapid rate, hurting batsmen with a mix of chin music and searing toe-crushing yorkers. He has established himself as the offensive leader of Australia in all formats.

Matches – 108

Wickets – 154

Economy – 7.27

2) Josh Hazlewood – He has suffocated countless batters with his steady precision, and he has also tried to adjust his arsenal to the format. He’ll be eager to make an impact and demonstrate his bowling variety.

Matches – 61

Wickets – 71

Economy – 7.42

3) Ravi Rampaul – Ravi Rampaul has distinguished out with regular performances in a mainly average West Indies team that has suffered owing to the absence of their stars due to the board’s quarrel. Rampaul’s easy, smooth movement causes both pace and accuracy problems for batters.

Matches – 167

Wickets – 213

Economy – 7.60

4) Akeal Hosein – After several senior players withdrew out of the tour in early 2021, Akeal Hosein was given a chance to shine for the West Indies in Bangladesh, but it had been a long time coming. Hosein, a white-ball spinner, made his Champions League T20 debut as a teenager, taking three wickets in three games for the Barbados Tridents.

Matches – 61

Wickets – 40

Economy – 6.38

Top 2 All-rounder Picks

1) Andre Russell – In his first few games of the 2011 World Cup, he wowed a lot of fans with his energy. He’s a fast bowler who can also bat in the lower middle order. The IPL pundits chose to buy his services for the Jamboree in 2012 after he shone as a power-hitter for the Caribbean squad.

Matches – 386

Runs – 6412

Average – 26.17

Wickets – 343

Economy – 8.42

2) Marcus Stoinis – Stoinis is one of the few cricketers who can bat anywhere in the order, bowl important overs at both the start and finish of a T20 inning and field with authority.

Matches – 167

Runs – 3547

Average – 31.95

Wickets – 80

Economy – 8.93
