Both Australia and the Windies have played and won one match each. But the Windies have a phenomenal run rate of +5.802, thanks to their win by 7 wickets against Pakistan. It is safe to say that Afghanistan put up a better fight compared to Pakistan. Here is all you need to read for both the teams before picking your Fantain XI.

Team News:

Australia

While the match against Afghanistan was not exactly competitive, Afghanistan did put up a fight against the Mighty Australians despite the low target that they had put on board. The pacers of the defending champions were quick to get early wickets to halt any attempt for a good score by Afghanistan. With Finch and Warner taking the lead, it was not much of a task to get to the target in the end.

Possible XI:

Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Steven Smith, Usman Khawaja, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Adam Zampa, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk)

West Indies

The Windies slaughtered through Pakistan’s lineup like a school team. If anyone did not consider the West Indies to be one of the strong contenders for the trophy, they might change their mind now. Thomas, Holder and Russell ensured that their batting did not have much to do; giving them a fantastic NRR to start the tournament with.

If anything, their batting might need a look as they could have won the match by ten wickets, given the powerhouse batting.

Possible XI:

Chris Gayle, Darren Bravo, Andre Russell, Ashley Nurse, Carlos Brathwaite, Jason Holder (c), Sheldon Cottrell, Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope (wk), Oshane Thomas

Top Picks

Oshane Thomas: His 4/27 shows that he has taken to the British Pitch very well. He is key against Australia, who cannot be taken lightly ever.

Chris Gayle: This man has faced Australia too many times to be left out of any lineup.

David Warner: He has been in brilliant form recently. He has also been practicing to fight the pacers of the Caribbeans. He is prepared indeed.

Our recommendation

Batsmen: Warner, Finch, Gayle

Bowlers: Thomas, Zampa, Cottrel, Starc

All-Rounders: Holder, Russell

WK: Pooran, Hope
