In the busy international schedule of July, Australia are set to face the West Indies in their own den in a total of eight white-ball matches. With the T20 World Cup in sight, this tour is a very important one for both the teams. Moreover, Australia will miss a lot of their first-choice players who have pulled out of this tour due to bubble fatigue. However, the visitors are still a force to reckon with.

On the other hand, the West Indies side is shaping up well with the likes of Andre Russell, Chris Gayle, Lendl Simmons, Fidel Edwards among others returning to the set up. However, they still managed to lose the T20I series against South Africa concluded on July 3. The five-match series went down the wire and the Proteas came up trumps in the decider.

The five-match T20I series between West Indies and Australia will commence on July 10 (according to IST) while the three ODIs are scheduled to be played on July 21, 23 and 25 (according to IST). The matches in the shortest format will be played at Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet, St Lucia while the One-Day Internationals will take place at Kensington Oval, Barbados.
