The Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in St Lucia presents the fifth and final T20I of the ongoing series between West Indies and Australia on Friday.
The expectation of hosts cleaning up was exceeded by the visitors after achieving an exciting victory in the fourth game. West Indies would now hope to take a turn and finish the five-game match 4-1.
On the other hand, Australia will focus on continuing the winning moment to finish the T20I series on a high note.
The previous match was a high score, where both teams exceeded the mark of 180 runs. Fans might expect another cracker from a match in the final T20I.
The comparison with Kieron Pollard the same will remain. If he’s fit enough, Windies might want to give him a match that could prove himself as a dress rehearsal for the upcoming three-match ODI series. In any other case, Nicholas Pooran will continue to lead the way.
WI XI: Nicholas Pooran (c and wk), Evin Lewis, Lendl Simmons, Chris Gayle, Andre Fletcher, Andre Russell, Fabian Allen, Akeal Hosein, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Hayden Walsh.
The Aaron Finch-led Australia recorded their first victory on the Caribbean tour, and Finch is unlikely to change the winning combination.
FROM XI: Aaron Finch (c), Matthew Wade (wk), Mitchell Marsh, Alex Carey, Moises Henriques, Ashton Turner, Daniel Christian, Adam Zampa, Riley Meredith, Jason Behrendorff, Mitchell Starc.
Prediction of the match:
- Australia wins the toss and bowls first
- Powerplay score: 45-55
- West Indies total: 155-165
- West Indies win the toss and bowl first
- Powerplay score: 50-55
- Australia total: 160-175
