In form sides, Australia and West Indies will feature in the 10th match of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup at Trent Bridge in Nottingham.


Australia and West Indies have played a total of 139 matches against each other, out of which Australia have won 73 and West Indies have won 60. Apart from the unofficial warm-up match which was won by Australia, the last time that the two teams met was in the tri-nation series in 2016, where Australia won two of the three group matches against the Calypso Kings.

In the last five matches played by both teams, Australia have won all their games, while West Indies have lost three and won two. Australia easily beat Afghanistan by seven wickets in their first match after dismissing them for a paltry 207. West Indies blew away Pakistan, skittling them out for a meager 105.

Both teams have found form just at the right time. After winning both the ODI series against India and Pakistan, Australia won a three-match warm-up series against New Zealand and a one-off warm-up match against West Indies. The team also came out victorious in both their practice matches.

West Indies, on the other hand, drew an ODI series against England in England. They then made it to the finals of tri-series in Ireland and made the most of their only warm-up match, slamming 421 against New Zealand, to take the match comfortably.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.

 

Australia- Aaron Finch, David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa

West Indies- Chris Gayle, Shai Hope, Darren Bravo, Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Andre Russell, Jason Holder, Carlos Brathwaite, Ashley Nurse, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas
