West Indies vs Australia Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing XI, Pitch Report, and Injury Update of 2nd ODI match.

WI vs AUS 2ND ODI Match Preview:

On the 25th of July, West Indies will take on Australia in the 2nd ODI Match at Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, Barbados.

The second ODI in Barbados was suspended moments before the first ball was due to be bowled after reports of a positive Covid test emerged.

The second CG Insurance ODI between West Indies and Australia had been postponed due to a positive COVID-19 test result from a non-playing member of the West Indies staff.  This decision was taken after the toss at Kensington Oval once the result was known.

Alex Carey, standing in for the injured Aaron Finch, had formed the backbone of Australia’s innings with Ashton Turner in a fifth-wicket stand of 104 in 19 overs before Hayden Walsh Jr sparked a late collapse with a career-best five-wicket haul. Mitchell Starc took a five-wicket haul as he and Josh Hazlewood dismantled West Indies in the opening ODI to give Alex Carey, who had earlier played a key hand with the bat, a winning start as Australia’s ODI captain.

However, Australia’s 252 – which was adjusted to a target of 257 after three rain interruptions cut the match to 49 overs – quickly looked imposing as Starc and Hazlewood got to work with the new ball to leave West Indies in a heap at 27 for 6. West Indies slumped to 27 for 6 as Starc and Hazlewood did the early damage and never recovered enough.

Starc took three wickets in his first spell and then returned to end the aggressive rearguard of Kieron Pollard. Kieron Pollard hit a 41-ball fifty, but the West Indies captain had been left with far too much ground to regain.

West Indies has been boosted by the return of wicketkeeper-batter Shai Hope after an ankle injury kept him out of the opening match. He will open the batting in place of Shimron Hetmyer and take the gloves off Nicholas Pooran.

WI vs AUS 2ND ODI Match Pitch Report:

This pitch is suitable for both bowling and batting.  It’s easy to bat in 1st innings as we witnessed in this series. The track is more helpful for spinners in the 2nd innings whereas in the 1st innings fast bowlers get good seam and bounce. Spinners and fast-bowlers that can bowl cutters are going to be very difficult to score off.

WI: Evin Lewis, Darren Bravo, Shai Hope(wk), Jason Mohammed, Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard (c), Jason Holder, Hayden Walsh, Sheldon Cottrell, Alzarri Joseph, Akeal Hosein
