West Indies tour of Australia 2024
AUS vs WI, 1st T20I
West Indies tour of Australia continues with a three match T20I series, starting on Friday (February 9). The multi format series began with the test leg that ended in a draw followed by three ODI matches which the hosts won comfortably by a margin of 3-0. The two sides will now square off in the shortest format, with the Men’s T20 World Cup slated to be held in June 2024.
The opening fixture of the series will be played at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart on February 9. This series provides a great opportunity for both Australia and West Indies to prepare for the forthcoming showpiece event. It allows the management from both nations to set up the right combinations.
Meanwhile, Australia will be brimming with confidence after their ODI series triumph. A lot of their regular players were rested but they put on a solid all round performance to lay all lingering doubts (if any) to bed. With their regular players back into the mix, they will hope to start off the series with a resounding win.
Rovman Powell will lead the West Indies side whereas Mitchell Marsh will helm the hosts. With quality players in both teams, it will be a riveting series to watch.
