In the 10th march of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, powerful Australia will take on the unpredictable West Indies team at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham on 6th June. AUS vs WI match preview.
Australia started their world cup campaign with a win over minnows Afghanistan. Their bowlers did a fabulous job and bundled Afghani team for just 207 runs. Australia chased the target with ease with 7 wickets in hand thanks to the heroics from Aron Finch and David Warner. With Steven Smith and David Warner in form, Australia looks a dominating side and would be favorite for the game.
Windies too are coming here after completely destroying the Pakistani team. It was a dream start to the world cup for WI team when they bowled out Pak team for just 105 runs and chased the target in just 13.4 overs. Andre Russell bowled a charismatic spell (4 overs – 3 runs – 2 wickets), Oshane Thomas surprised the Pak team (took four wickets) and then we witnessed Gayle storm who made the chase one-way traffic. Windies must be high on confidence and would like to carry on the momentum but it is going to be a herculean task for them when they will face Australia.
