Match Preview

Australia and West Indies are set to lock horns in Match No.38 of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021 today at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. West Indies has already been knocked out of the tournament semifinals race after their 20-run loss to Sri Lanka on Wednesday.

The Caribbean team will be playing with nothing to lose, but pride and dignity in their final Super 12 match. On the other hand, Australia is beaming with confidence after they beat Bangladesh on Wednesday by eight wickets. A win by a huge margin will help them qualify for the semi-final of the tournament by boosting their net run rate.

Australia cannot afford to lose in today’s match against the West Indies because South Africa, their current big competition, and a defeat will mean that their competition, for South Africa, may progress to the knockouts but they are facing England in the evening game today and they hope they lose. 

West Indies are looking to end their campaign on a high note after an embarrassing loss to Sri Lanka, to have a score that eliminated them from the competition. They are the deafening champions and two-time champions of the T20 World Cup. They have only won one game so far out of four matches they’ve been to and their key and experienced players have struggled for form since they started their campaign in the ICC T20 World Cup.

The match could be West Indies’ last game and they will want to give their best. Dwayne Bravo has confirmed that he will retire from international cricket after today’s match in Abu Dhabi. Chris Gayle is also expected to retire soon for his play has been wearing off. Australia won in their previous game against Bangladesh by eight wickets thanks to a phenomenal bowling attack they held up. Players Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc struck earlier in the game and Adam Zampa took 5/19 as they bowled out  Bangladesh for 73.
