World Cup 2019: Australia Vs West Indies


MATCH DETAILS

Australia Vs West Indies, Match 10 – ICC Cricket World Cup 2019
6th June 2019, 3:00 PM IST

VENUE : Trent Bridge, Nottingham

DETAILS

Established in 1841, Trent Bridge has undergone a lot of renovation in recent times that has made the outfield even smaller and left it in an unusual shape. The boundary is straight instead of being curved on one side and it can be terrifyingly short. The pitch at Trent Bridge has been described as flat and does not assist with a lot of swing. In that light, it is ideal for heavy hitting and has become a paradise for batsmen.

PREVIEW

Both the teams are coming from a win in their opening matches. Both Australia and West Indies have a power-packed batting line up. So a thrilling encounter would be expected.

Australia won their first match of the tournament against Afghanistan. David Warner and Aaron Finch were good with the bat. Starc, Cummins, Stoinis and Zampa were good with the bowl. There is no real weakness in this side and it is just a question of the players performing to their potential.

West Indies lived up to its billing as the dark horse for this tournament by brushing aside Pakistan with ease. Oshane Thomas was brilliant with the bowl. Gayle scored a fifty runs knock and Pooran was good too. The team will likely to continue their form against Australia too.
