Australia vs West Indies
03:30 PM +06
10th match, ICC Cricket World Cup at Nottingham, Jun 6, 2019
Australia had spoken about Nathan Lyon as an option when they come up against a team dominated by left-handers. And with the likes of Chris Gayle, Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer and Nicholas Pooran in the top five, this might well be their chance to test their off-spin option. The small square boundaries and the West Indian left-hander’s tendency to swing towards the on-side – except the more classical Bravo – should be a good enough reason to pick Lyon over Adam Zampa, who did concede 20 runs in an over to the left-handed Najibullah Zadran in Bristol. But Australia haven’t been keen on tinkering with their bowling options of late especially when it comes to their spin department in ODIs.
Probable XI: David Warner, Aaron Finch (c), Usman Khawaja, Steve Smith, Marcus Stoinis, Glen Maxwell, Alex Carey (wk), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa/Nathan Lyon
There were some question marks about Gayle and Russell after the Pakistan game, but the duo was seen having lengthy stints in the nets on Wednesday. Russell was among the first out as his teammates went through their warm-up routines, and he then spent nearly half-hour striking balls. Gayle walked out announcing, “The Universe Boss has arrived” to the slew of photographers assembled under the dressing-room before padding up, putting on his headgear and occupying the nets for nearly 40 minutes. He then walked to the centre of the ground and went through some visualisation routines all by himself before walking over to the net on the far side for another hit. He then also was seen rolling his arm over for a few minutes, and considering he hasn’t faced Australia in since his unceremonious exit from the Big Bash, beware Australia.
Probable XI: Chris Gayle, Shai Hope, Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Andre Russell, Jason Holder (c), Carlos Brathwiate, Ashley Nurse, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas
