Australia are known for their successful World Cup campaigns over the years. Their all round performance was on display when they beat Afghanistan in their first game. Their opponents – West Indies, mauled Pakistan and gave a strong message to the other sides. They are in it to win it.
West Indies have had the upper hand over the Aussies in the World Cups, having won 5 out of the 9 matches played. But the last 3 WC matches have been won by Australia. It will be interesting to see how WI handle Starc & Cummins. Also, can the WI bowlers step up against the likes of Warner & Smith? It surely promises to be a good contest. Weather & Pitch report:
