Our Tipster’s Angle

Despite West Indies winning the T20I series, the dead rubber is expected to be close contest between the two teams. For hosts, they might give opportunities to players that have to play an active part in the T20I series.

For Australia, winning this game is important as they would want to take some confidence into the ODI series that starts from Tuesday.

Therefore, the prediction is for West Indies to win the fifth and final game of the T20I series.
