West Indies vs Australia – 3rd T20I Betting Tips

Host West Indies will be looking to seal the T20I series when they take on Australia in the third game at Darren Sammy Cricket Stadium in St Lucia on Tuesday.

West Indies put in a clinical performance with bat and ball against Australia in the second game of the T20I series. With this result, Men in Maroon have taken a 2-0 lead in the five-match series. Captain Kieron Pollard will be hoping that premier players can maintain focus and close out the T20I series on Monday.

On the other hand, Australia’s batting struggles continued in this game. In the second T20I, the visitors were bundled out for 140 runs in 19.2 overs. After string of low scores, Skipper Aaron Finch will need to lead from the front with the bat for Australia to keep the series alive.

West Indies Form and Team News:

After doing exceedingly well for West Indies this summer, pacer Obed McCoy was rested for the previous game. Left-arm pacer Sheldon Cottrell came in place of Obed McCoy and put in an excellent performance for West Indies.

West Indies will be relying heavily on in-form opener Lendl Simmons, middle order trio of Shimron Hetymer, Dwayne Bravo and Andre Russell to deliver the bulk of the runs. 

In the previous game, Shimron Hetymer showed excellent form with the bat and finished the innings with the top score of 61 runs off 36 balls with the help of two fours and four sixes.

Besides Hetymer, the likes of Dwayne Bravo, Lendl Simmons and Andre Russell produced scores of 47 not out, 30, and 24 respectively.

In the bowling department, the side will be depending on the likes of Sheldon Cottrell, Hayden Walsh Jr. and Fabian Allen to pick up key wickets in this game.

Leg-spinner Hayden Walsh Jr. was the pick of the bowlers for West Indies in the 2nd T20I and claimed 3 for 29 in his four overs. Left-arm pacer Sheldon Cottrell had a strong outing with the ball for West Indies and finished with figures of 2 for 22 in his three overs.

Australia Form and Team News: 

Australia’s Inexperienced batting lineup once again failed to adjust to the conditions to lose the game by a comprehensive margin.

For the second game in a row, all-rounder Mitchell Marsh continued his splendid form and notched up his second consecutive half-century of the series. He scored 54 runs off 42 balls with the help of five fours and one six. Besides Marsh, Moises Henriques and Josh Phillipe were the other two batsmen to put in double-digit scores.

The main concern for Australia will be losing too many wickets in the middle overs of the innings.

For this crucial game, the team management will be hoping that the opening pair of Matthew Wade and Captain Aaron Finch can get the side off to a decent start.

Left-arm orthodox spinner, Ashton Agar was the standout bowler for Australia and claimed 1 for 28 in his four overs. Leg-spinner Adam Zampa once again failed to pick up a wicket against West Indies.

Given Mitchell Starc’s poor form, Jason Behrendroff could come into the playing XI for the third game of the series.
