West Indies tour of Australia for a two-match T20I series will get underway on October 5, Wednesday. The Kangaroos arrived on home soil after losing the three-match T20I series against India, while West Indies, on the other hand, will look to sweat it hard prior to the start of the 20-20 World Cup 2022 qualifiers.
Cameron Green has been a great find for Austalia and the batter proved his worth in the recently concluded series against Men in Blue. Batting at a strike rate of around 200 in the entire series, Green caused a lot of damage to the Indian pace battery. The superstar might replicate the same in the upcoming series and seal his place in the forthcoming major tournaments as he was not included in the squad for the upcoming 20-20 World Cup.
With regard to West Indies, the team lost the ODI series and T20I series against New Zealand played in August. The Nicholas Pooran-led team would look to make a strong recuperation and prove a point in the upcoming series. Above all, a win in the series against the home side might help in improving the team’s morale ahead of the mega tournament.
However, the Caribbean team management had to deal with a huge blow as Shimron Hetmyer missed the re-scheduled flight to New York. Shamarh Brooks, who has been a part of the team setup for a while, replaced Hetmyer in the squad.
