West Indies are currently placed at the 7th position on ICC Men’s T20I Rankings with a rating of 245.
Players to look out for:

1. Nicholas Pooran – He is one of the best T20 players in the world currently. Pooran showed great signs of form in the International League T20 competition held in UAE. He is expected to perform well against the hosts.

2. Gudakesh Motie– He is a wily left arm spinner who doesn’t leak runs while picking up wickets at regular intervals.

Current T20I Form Australia:

Australia have dominated West Indies in the ODI leg of the tour. However, they will be given stiff competition by the visitors in T20I’s.

Australia are currently placed at the 4th position on ICC Men’s T20I Team Rankings with a rating of 250.

Australia aren’t in the best of T20I form lately. They lost a T20I series against India away from home by 4-1 in December last year.

Players to look out for:

1. Aaron Hardie – He was in great form in the recently concluded BBL and will look forward to stretching the golden run in the upcoming matches against West Indies.
