Two T20 international matches between Australia and the West Indies will take place before to the T20 World Cup, which will begin in a few days. The two-match series is meaningless on its own, but it is a crucial encounter to take into account before the T20 World Cup. In preparation for the key game, both sides will want to try out their lineups and merely shake off any rust.

Shimron Hetmyer missed his trip and is now officially out of the T20 World Cup, thus West Indies enters in a bit of the usual tumult.

Australia is clearly the favorite for this match according to the cricket betting services, but it’s important to note that West Indies has a strong record versus Australia in this format.

Australia vs. West Indies first 20-over match prediction and cricket betting advice for 2022. On October 5, 2022, the game will be held at the Carrara Oval in Queensland.


Despite losing its most recent series against India, Australia fought valiantly despite being without four of its top players. For this series against the West Indies, all of those players are eligible for selection. Australia also lost the T20 series against India for the first time since 2021. (during which it also won the T20 World Cup).

It will be difficult for Australia to choose the best mixture. With his outstanding performance against India, Cameron Green undoubtedly gave Australia pause. Although we still anticipate that Finch and Warner will start the inning, Steve Smith’s status may be seriously jeopardized.

The greatest asset of Australia is its batting ability. There is a ton of depth, power, and untapped potential for six-hitting. For the first game, you may line up Finch, Warner, Marsh, Smith, Maxwell, Wade, David, and Cummins.

Up until position eight, it is actual batting ability. If necessary, even Mitchell Starc and Adam Zampa can slap the ball.

The bowling assault has a good foundation. Australia may choose its top four bowlers (Starc, Zampa, Hazelwood, and Cummins) from a variety of all-rounders, and earn the fifth bowler’s quota from a combination of Maxwell, David, and Marsh.

With this roster, every possible scenario is covered.


The fact that West Indies has won in four of the six T20 games it has played against Australia since 2021 would give the team encouragement. All four of their triumphs, meanwhile, occurred in the West Indies. It’s a very different challenge to defeat Australia there.

Nicholas Pooran is the captain of West Indies, which entered this series immediately after the CPL. Shamarh Brooks was presumably chosen as Shimron Hetmyer’s successor since the CPL’s performances will be given a lot of weight in this situation. However, since Hetmyer is one of the greatest middle-order players available and Brooks prefers to bat in the top three, he is not truly a like-for-like substitute.

There are several outstanding hitters from the West Indies as well. The seasoned Evin Lewis is back in the mix, Brandon King is in fantastic shape, and Kyle Mayers has transformed into a true all-rounder. Numerous hard-hitting all-rounders will come behind Rovman Powell and Nicholas Pooran in the batting order.

Finding the correct combination—something the West Indies squad has always battled with—as well as an efficient bowling assault will likely be the side’s biggest challenges. Aside from Akeal Hosein, who is the designated death bowler and Obed McCoy, all other bowlers have plenty of room to go.


The winning team will probably choose to file first. Since 2019, the chasing team has triumphed in 8 of the 12 games played at the Carrara Oval.


Although there is a little probability of rain, Queensland is likely to have quite humid weather. The Carrara Oval’s average score since 2019 is 157, however we believe a par score would be higher. T20 cricket has improved, and hitters are now taking more chances than they previously did. Something around 170 should be regarded as average in light of this and the batting lineups for the two clubs.


In this match, Australia has our support. There is no question that they are the superior side, and although West Indies has some really dangerous players, there are still many questions that need to be answered. With a bowling attack that has no holes in it and batting till the ninth or tenth position, Australia will be at full strength. We are pleased to support this squad to win more often while playing at home.

Speculate on Australia winning.
