After a successful start to their World Cup campaign, the defending champions Australia will be taking on the West Indies at Trent Bridge on 6th June. After winning their first match, both the teams will be looking to carry the momentum forward by winning the next game.
This match is anticipated to be one of the most exciting games of World Cup 2019. Both the teams are capable of scoring massive scores, and also have bowlers who can bowl at high speeds. It will be one hell of a contest, and we might get to see some fireworks in Trent Bridge tomorrow.
The Australian team has been great form since their series against India last year, and with David Warner and Steve Smith coming back into the side, their batting line-up looks much stronger. The former has been in great form since IPL and also went on to score 89 not out in the first match against Afghanistan.
Adam Zampa and Pat Cummins were exceptional with the bowl in the first match and did get constant support from Mitchell Starc did hit 150 kmph multiple times. Australia might play unchanged as the team’s composition looks perfect.
Probable XI for Australia
David Warner, Aaron Finch, Usman Khawaja, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Arey Carey, Pat Cummins, Nathan Counter-Nile, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa.
West Indies will walk into this match full with confidence, after defeating Pakistan in their first match by seven wickets. Chris Gayle and Shai Hope are fit and will be playing tomorrow. Andre Russell, Jason Holder and Carlos Brathwaite are capable of scoring some quick runs in the last overs and can bowl some handy overs as well, giving the team three extra bowling options.
Ashley Nurse will be the prime spinner for the team. The limelight will be on Oshane Thomas who bowled exceptionally well in the first match and was awarded Man of the Match as well. Dareen Bravo might be given another chance over Even Lewis as he brings the experience into the side.
Probable XI for West Indies
Chris Gayle, Shai Hope, Darren Bravo, Nicholas Pooran, Sirmione Hetymer, Andre Russell, Jason Holder, Carlos Brathwaite, Ashley Nurse, Cottrell, Oshane Thomas.
Dream XI Predictions
- Wicket-Keeper: Shai Hope(VC), Nicholas Pooran
- Batsmen: David Warner(C), Usman Khawaja, Aaron Finch, Chris Gayle
- All-rounders: Andre Russell, Marcus Stoinis
- Bowlers: Oshane Thomas, Pat Cummins, Adam Zampa
Trent Bridge serves as a batting paradise for the players. Bowlers might get some help up front due to the overcast conditions. Whoever wins the toss should elect to bowl first and chase.
