Australia v West Indies T20I at Brisbane live and preview Sports pundit

After being thrashed 5-0 in the recently concluded ODI series, the West Indies now have only one chance to register a win and save some pride, on this winless tour so far.

They will face Australia tomorrow in the only T20 of the tour. The match will be hosted at Brisbane.

Australian cricket teams of the previous decades have long been known to humiliate their opponents at home, as the recent West Indies losses showed.

However, the recent whitewash is more important for the Kangaroos, as they will gain momentum for the difficult tour of India, after a mixed series against Sri Lanka prior to this one.

In the one-off T20, the Australian team, led by George Bailey is likely to comprise mostly of the team that played the last ODI. We may see one or two changes in playing XI tomorrow, considering the format switch.

The Aussies will be looking to complete the summer season on a high, and thus we might witness some stunning performances from the Australian players tomorrow.

On the other hand, it cannot be forgotten completely that the Windies are the current T20 champions, and their bunch of explosive players can always turn the game around, especially in the shortest format.

West Indies are expected to make few changes to the XI that featured in the ODIs. Their T20 squad is not different from the ODI one.

West Indies desparately need the services of their senior man, Chris Gayle. He needs to deliver, as the team looks for a solitary win of the tour, tomorrow.

A high scoring contest is expected tomorrow in Brisbane, as both the sides are loaded with numerous big hitters, known to send the ball way farther than the boundary.

The pitch is expected to be a typical Gabba one, with some assistance for the bowlers as well.
