West Indies v Australia Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips 


The West Indies and Australia will clash for a second time at the 2020 Under 19 Cricket World Cup in the 5th Place Play-off in Benoni.

The West Indies sneaked home in the group stage clash, so things are expected to be tight once again, but the side from the Caribbean look the favourites to seal 5th spot at the tournament.

Both sides head into this clash off the back of disappointing defeats, so the only goal now will be to end the tournament on a high.

West Indies Form


The had brushed aside Australia, England and Nigeria to reach the quarter-finals, but came unstuck against New Zealand.

Following that defeat, the West Indies beat hosts South Africa in the semi-final of the 5th place play-off. The host nation only 143 with the Windies winning by three wickets.

Kevlon Anderson, who averages 40+ in the tournament is available at odds of $5.00 to top score while the West Indies are priced at 1.90 for the win.

West Indies News


The West Indies appear to have a fully-fit squad at their disposal, but it is likely that head coach Floyd Reifer will mix things up a bit in order to bring a freshness to the side.

Australia Form


Australia head into this match off the back of a 4-wicket win over Afghanistan. After dismissing the Afghans for 191 Australia struggled to reach the total but eventually won with a ball to spare.

These issues with the bat – as were also highlighted against West Indies in the group stage where they managed a paltry 179 runs will be of concern to coach Chris Rogers. The Aussies can be backed at $1.90 to reverse the result from earlier in the tournament but will need a far better batting display.

Coach Chris Rogers has not been shy in rotating his side during the 2020 Under 19 Cricket World Cup, so it is unknown as yet whether he will decide to go with an extra batsman to try and solidify his top order.
