Carrara Oval Queensland T20 average score: Highest successful T20I run chase at Metricon Stadium

Carrara Oval Queensland T20 average score: West Indies will take on World champions Australia in a two-match T20I series starting Wednesday.

West Indies will lock horns against defending T20 World champions Australia in a two-match T20I series commencing October 5 (Wednesday) at the Carrara Oval in Queensland.

Set to play a T20I series after August this year, the Nicholas Pooran-led side will look to get it all sorted in these two games after all the controversies that have cropped up ever since their World Cup squad announcement.

While their T20 stars in Andre Russell and Sunil Narine have been excluded from the upcoming T20 World Cup, Southpaw batter Shimron Hetmyer surprisingly had to pay the price for missing a rescheduled flight to Australia, at the cost of a World Cup spot.

Moreover, their recent T20 form has been far from good of late, having lost versus India (4-1) and then against New Zealand (2-1) in the previous two series.
