“COVID breaks in the series, Windies overcome the Aussies, Series on standstill 1-1, As we go in the decider”
Things have gone to wire, cause the ways have been different from both the sides in the first two ODI’s, Australia dominated and then get dominated by the Windies but out of the box, it was a splendid performance by both the sides in the second ODI while the match went the West Indies side. Chasing 188, the men in red were tumbling at 72-5 when Jason Holder and Nicolas Pooran came to rescues for levelling series 1-1. Yes, the pitch favours the spinner namely Zampa, Hosein, Walsh but the composer needs to be shown by the batters in the Last and the final ODI of the series.
In the Press Conference, Carey looked positive and said it’s an opportunity for me to win my first series as a captain and the team is ready to rock, play good cricket and bounce back. Apart from this, the game holds a lot of things and major talking points, where it’s the battle of two uncertain lineups with series on the line. An eye on the World Cup Super League is also a concern for both the giants.
To call for a winner after we have seen good batting, great bowling is really hard when things go at the wire. But we are ready for some exciting cricket this afternoon.
Australia XI: Matthew Wade, Josh Philippe, Mitchell Marsh, Ben McDermott, Alex Carey (C and WK), Ashton Turner, Moises Henriques, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Adam Zampa, Ashton agar/ Swepson
Aussies are expected to play two frontline spinners this time around as the pitch holds a lot for spinners
West Indies XI: Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, Darren Bravo, Nicholas Pooran, Jason Mohammed, Kieron Pollard, Jason Holder, Alzarri Joseph, Akeal Hosein, Sheldon Cottrell, Walsh Jr.
The deciders never get the better off the record and when it’s the battle of the two powerhouses of cricket, it’s the heroics of the 11 playings on the field.
Date& Place: 27th July, Kensington Oval, Bridgetown Cricket Ground, Barbados
Time: 00:00 A.M. IST, 2:30 P.M. local time
Weather Report: We are expected to have a fine & sunny day with more humidity with a bit of shower in the vicinity.
Pitch Conditions: Now after two low scoring games, the average score of the ground i.e 250 looks far and the pitch which has nothing to deliver for batsman where spinners are putting in their front foot forward, seemingly this last time around in the 3rd one, we expect to have a great encounter.
