WI vs AUS Head to Head Records: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for the first WI vs AUS T20I.
The first T20I of the ongoing Australia’s tour of West Indies will be played at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium tomorrow. Despite last playing a T20I against each other in 2014, not much has changed with respect to the players involved in this series.
It is the intriguing nature of this format that limelight still remains on the likes of Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, Aaron Finch, Matthew Wade and Daniel Christian.
With an ICC T20 World Cup to be played in the UAE later this year, both West Indies and Australia won’t get better conditions and opposition to fine-tune their squad in the build-up to the showpiece event.
