  • West Indies Form

  • Australia have won their last 9 ODIs.
  • Australia’s Steven Smith scored 79 runs in his last ODI.
  • West Indies lost the 1st ODI by 8 wickets.
  • West Indies’ Keacy Carty scored 88 runs in his last ODI.

Head to Head


Australia have won five of their last six ODIs against the West Indies. In the opening game of this series, the Aussies cruised to an eight-wicket success.

Australia Form


Australia showed why they are world champions in this format during the first ODI. With a number of first-choice players rested, they cruised to an eight-wicket win.

Bowling first, Xavier Bartlett bowled superbly, taking 4-17 in nine overs. Australia held the West Indies to 231 runs.

Travis Head fell early in the chase, but Josh Inglis scored 65 off 43 balls. Once he was dismissed, Cameron Green and Steven Smith took Australia home inside 39 overs. Smith Scored 79 while Green added 77.

West Indies Form


Batting first in the opening ODI of the series, the Windies struggled to get going. They lost four early wickets before Keacy Carty (88) and Roston Chase (59) put some respectability to the score.

A total of 231 was never really going to trouble Australia who chased the score down inside 39 overs. The West Indies bowlers struggled throughout to make any inroads on what was a reasonably flat surface.

Verdict

I am backing Steven Smith to score 50+ runs and top score for Australia. Keacy Carty is backed to top score again for the West Indies.
