Australia vs West Indies at the ICC World Cup 2019 is going to be one of the more awaited matches by neutral observers in this early stage of the tournament. Both the teams are playing exciting cricket and have been strengthened by the return of some of their best players.
For Australia, having David Warner and Steve Smith back makes them serious title contenders once again while the West Indians have Andre Russell and Chris Gayle in their side to make them extremely dangerous.
Australia won its opening encounter against Afghanistan without too much trouble and that was an expected result. It was the manner in which the West Indies destroyed Pakistan that really woke the world up to their potential in the cricket world cup 2019.
There has been sufficient time in between matches for both teams to allow all the players enough time to recover from their injuries and we expect to see a full-strength team from both sides. This match will prove whether the West Indian resurgence is actually something real or just another false dawn.
Australia vs West Indies is going to be played at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on the 6th of June 2019.
Australia has won the cricket world cup a record five times and even though it may not be the favorite this time around, no one can take it lightly. David Warner has been in brilliant form since his return to international cricket while Steve Smith is in good touch too.
This has meant that the batting problems being faced by Australia not too long ago are a thing of the past.
Going up against a talented but not extraordinary West Indian attack, we think the Australia batsmen will do very well. Warner, Finch, Smith, Khawaja, Maxwell, Stoinis, and Carey at number 7 is a long and powerful batting lineup.
The key players are obviously David Warner and Steve Smith but Aaron Finch is no less dangerous. Usman Khawaja has also been hitting ODI centuries with remarkable consistency, although, we are not sure if he is going to be replicate that for in the ICC World Cup 2019.
This match is being played at Trent Bridge where some massive scored well above 400 have been hit recently. The Australians certainly have the batting power to make such totals or to chase them down if needed.
The Aussies may not have more power than the West Indian lineup but they do have more pedigree and consistency.
The biggest difference between the two sides is going to be the bowling. The Australians have a very good bowling attack led by Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins. These are two genuinely quick bowlers that are always searching for wickets. Nathan Coulter-Nile as the third seamer is not bad either.
Adam Zampa has been very effective in the middle overs while the presence of Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis in the provides two more bowling options to the Australians if needed.
There is no real weakness in this side and it is just a question of the players performing to their potential.
Aaron Finch, David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa.
West Indies lived up to its billing as the dark horse for this tournament by brushing aside Pakistan with ease. For a change, it was not it's powerful batting that took center stage but its bowling. Led by some fearsome short bowling by Andre Russell and Oshane Thomas, the West Indies used the short ball plan very effectively to stop the Pakistani batsmen in their tracks.
We are not sure how well the same kind of attack will work against Australia.
West Indies took a big risk by playing just three regular bowlers against Pakistan and then banking on the all-rounders to do the rest of the work. Jason Holder, Andre Russell, and Carlos Brathwaite are pretty decent bowlers so the idea of getting 20 overs from these three is not that far-fetched provided they remain fit.
This team selection also allows the West Indies to play a long and dangerous batting lineup.
Carlos Brathwaite is slated to bat at number 8 and he is certainly no slouch.
The long batting lineup allows players like Chris Gayle, Shimron Hetmyer, and Nicholas Pooran to play freely. The challenge for this entire lineup is going to be shot selection. The Australian bowling attack is a much better one than Pakistan and is going to ask difficult questions from the very first ball.
The West Indian players will need to take their time and get their eye in before going hard. They have the power in the side to be able to catch up later on thanks to Russell, Holder, and Brathwaite in the lower-order.
We have seen many times in the past that the Australian and West Indian players really go hard at each other. There is not too much love between these two sets of players and this can sometimes motivate the West Indian players even more.
Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Shai Hope, Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Andre Russell, Jason Holder, Carlos Brathwaite, Ashley Nurse, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas.
The team winning the toss is likely to want to bat second. Trent Bridge is a venue where teams chasing targets have had a lot of success in the past and both the teams will be well aware of that.

Australia vs West Indies ICC World Cup 2019 match is going to be played at Trent Bridge, Nottingham. A few scattered showers are expected on match day in Nottingham but hopefully nothing that is going to cause a reduction in the overs.
The pitch at Nottingham is one of the flattest batting decks in the world. The ground itself is pretty small and a lot of mishits can end up clearing the boundaries. This is the venue where England scored 481 and felt they could have got 500 with just a little bit of luck.
350 is not a score that teams would feel safe defending.
The Dream11 team for Australia vs West Indies is always fun to make. It is expected to be an exciting match with both the teams coming hard at each other. The Australian fast bowlers have already started talking about the West Indian players and the fireworks are only going to get more intense once the match starts. We will be updating our Dream11 team for Australia vs West Indies on twitter after the toss. Follow @cricketbettings for the latest updates.
Wicketkeeper: We have picked both the West Indian wicketkeepers, Nicholas Pooran, and Shai hope, in our team. Shai Hope is in tremendous form and is very comfortable against fast bowling. He will have to play one of the lead roles for West Indies if they have to win or even compete. Nicholas Pooran is also in good touch and is a clean striker of the ball in the middle overs.
Batsmen: Steve Smith, David Warner, and Aaron Finch are all easy picks and are going to be a part of most lineups. It is essential to have them in your side even if they are not going to help you differentiate yourself. Our last batsman is the horribly out of form, Darren Bravo. It has been quite some time since he last score runs and the West Indies would be getting worried now. We still think his position at the top of the order and his inherent class as a batsman should come through sooner rather than later.
All-rounders: Jason Holder and Andre Russell can lay claim to being two of the best all-rounders in the world. Andre Russell surprised everyone with the ball in the previous match but his real talent lies with the bat. Jason Holder has been very good in both disciplines as well and will lead from the front against the Aussies.
Bowlers: Mitchell Starc is the one frontline bowler we are leaving out just because we don't have enough points to accommodate him. We have instead picked Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, and Adam Zampa in the side. The strength of the Australian side is quite clear looking at our bowling selections!
Captain and Vice-Captain: We have chosen David Warner as captain and Nathan-Coulter Nile as vice-captain for this match.

The toss is going to play a big role in this match. A small ground where defending a total is tough already provides a big advantage to the chasing side. Add rain to the equation and that advantage grows even more.
We think that Australia has the bowling attack to be able to stop the West Indian batsmen or at least limit the damage that they can cause. Both sides have a strong batting lineup and so the bowling could well be the differentiating factor.
Bet on Australia to win.
