Gayle will hope to end the tournament on a high
Off to a great start, West Indies
The first Mitchell Starc over brings just four runs but Evin Lewis and Chris Gayle plunder 20 off Hazlewood. Lewis gets three consecutive boundaries. Gayle adds a six.
Toss: Unchanged Australia opt to chase
A bit of a no-brainer really but both captains expect the pitch to play same through the course of the 40 overs. There is a change for the Men In Maroon. Hayden Walsh Jr., who had much success in the Caribbean against Australia, comes in for Ravi Rampaul.
West Indies (Playing XI): Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Nicholas Pooran(w), Roston Chase, Shimron Hetmyer, Kieron Pollard(c), Andre Russell, Jason Holder, Dwayne Bravo, Hayden Walsh, Akeal Hosein
Australia (Playing XI): David Warner, Aaron Finch(c), Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Steven Smith, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade(w), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood
Kieron Pollard has won only 1 toss in 5 matches in this Men's T20 WC 2021. Aaron Finch has won 4 out of 5 tosses in this World Cup!
More at stake than a legacy-ending game
Mazher Arshad @MazherArshad It's a must-win match for West Indies today. If they lose, they will drop to Number 9 (according to the ICC T20 Rankings predictor). If they are outside Top 8 by November 15, 2021, they will not “directly qualify for Super 12” of T20 WC 2022 in Australia. #AusvWI 09:39 AM • Nov 11, 2021
With three wins from four games, Australia are on the cusp of entering the semi-finals of the T20 WC. However, standing in Aaron Finch side's way is the West Indies. Even though the Windies don't have a chance of progressing to the next stage, they have historically played well against Australia in the T20 format, having won 10 of their 16 matches versus the aforesaid opponent.
Can Adam Zampa and the three-pronged pace attack run through the Windies' batting unit or will the struggling Chris Gayle hog the limelight? We will have all the action in a while…
