When and Where to Watch West Indies vs Australia Live Streaming, Match Preview, Timings, and Pitch Report for 3rd T20I
The Aussies need to sort out their batting woes going into the must-win encounter.
Updated - Jul 12, 2021 1:02 pm
Australia have had a poor outing until now in the West Indies T20Is, having lost all their two matches. Their batting failed to absorb the pressure of run-chases in the first two encounters.
Despite Mitchell Marsh’s half-centuries, they huffed and puffed. The Caribbean bowlers, on the other hand, have been at their very best, not allowing much leeway to the opposition.
In the previous match, Shimron Hetmyer set the platform a massive score after which it became all too easy for the home team’s bowling unit.
The third game of the series is set to take place on Monday, July 12 at the Daren Sammy Stadium and it’s a must-win game for the Aussies.
Among the two teams, Australia are ranked four places higher and would be desperate to make a comeback.
Playing combination for WI vs AUS
The hosts may not want to make any changes, but if Kieron Pollard returns to the eleven, Gayle is likely to sit out. The Universe Boss has scored only 17 in two matches. Andre Russell and Shimron Hetmyer are the half-centurions for the Caribbean team. Hayden Walsh Jr has been outstanding as he has six wickets at an economy of 6.50. The other bowlers have lent him adequate support.
Lendl Simmons, Evin Lewis, Chris Gayle/Kieron Pollard, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (C and WK), Andre Russell, Dwayne Bravo, Fabian Allen, Hayden Walsh Jr, Fidel Edwards, Obed McCoy
Bench: Andre Fletcher, Hayden Walsh Jr, Akeal Hosein, Oshane Thomas, Jason Holder, Sheldon Cottrell, Kevin Sinclair, Kieron Pollard/Chris Gayle
For the Aussies, Mitchell Starc’s form has been a bit of a concern. He is Australia’s most expensive bowler with an economy of 11.12 and he is yet to pick up a wicket. In the batting department, Mitchell Marsh is the leading run-scorer of the series with 105 runs. The rest of their batters are terribly out of form. Right-arm Fast bowler Josh Hazlewood has been decent as well with four scalps.
Aaron Finch (C), Matthew Wade (wk), Mitchell Marsh, Josh Philippe, Ben McDermott/Ashton Turner, Moises Henriques, Ashton Agar, Daniel Christian, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Adam Zampa
