West Indies vs Australia (WI vs AUS) T20, ODI Series 2021 Schedule, Squad, Venues: Australia will look for the right combination ahead of T20 World Cup. There will be opportunities for veteran players like Moises Henriques, Daniel Christian and new players like Riley Meredith, Mitchell Swepson, Wes Agar and others to prove their mettle to be considered for the big event. Pat Cummins, Glenn Maxwell, David Warner, Steve Smith, Marcus Stoinis, Jhye Richardson and Kane Richardson pulled out of the tour whereas Steve Smith is nursing an elbow injury.
It has been few months since the Aaron Finch-led side has played T20 cricket. On the other hand, hosts lost to South Africa by 2-3 in the recently-concluded T20I series. The World Cup defending champions led by Kieron Pollard will look to prey on the inexperienced players on the Aussie side. Also, it will be another opportunity for Nicholas Pooran to regain his form.
