Australia vs West Indies T20I match prediction: What do the betting odds suggest? Who’ll win on November 6?
Comprising a total of 45 games, the ICC T20 World Cup Tournament took off on October 17, while the final match is scheduled on the 14th of November 2021. The qualifier round commenced on October 17 and got over on October 22. This was closely followed by the Super 12 round, which began from October 23 itself, and will end on November 8.
Here’s looking at the upcoming WI Vs Aus match on November 6, which punters are eagerly awaiting. Both belong to Super 12 Group 1, Australia and West Indies are at 4 and 0 points respectively, according to the T20 World Cup 2021 points table. While Australia features in the second position, West Indies is in the last position.
Australia’s Performance in the World Cup So Far
When it comes to the Australian team, there’s a major comeback of some of the big names, while Josh Inglis has received his first call-up despite never representing his country previously. One more good news that bodes well for the team is that Steve Smith has recovered from his elbow injury, while the squad also marks the return of Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, David Warner, and Pat Cummins.
Despite being the winner of five ODI World Cups, the Australian side is yet to win a single T20 WC title. They ended up as runners-up in 2010, losing to England in the final, and that was the best-ever result, which speaks volumes. Overall, they have a win percentage of 55.17, having played 29 games in the tournament since 2007, out of which they won 16 and lost 13. The side has recently grabbed headlines, with players critical of head coach Justin Langer and his coaching methods. They recently lost the T20I series against West Indies and Bangladesh, but with some of the big stars making a return, the team is expected to get a major boost.
This T20 World Cup campaign had Australia starting off with a nervy win against South Africa in the first match of the Super 12 stage. Sure, they had their share of anxious moments but eventually, the team managed to outdo South Africa by five wickets. Marcus Stoinis managed to pull off a brilliant finisher role, making his presence felt at the vital moments, and how! He hit three boundaries in the 19th and 20th overs to take Australia closer to the finishing line. South Africa put up a strong performance as a team but did not have enough to play with. Though the victory wasn’t really convincing, it gave Australia a strong foothold in a challenging group, revealing their established strengths as much as their obvious flaws.

West Indies’ Performance in the World Cup So Far
Having been champions of the ICC T20 World Cup twice, West Indies will surely be eager to emerge victorious one more time! If it manages to do that, it will be the first team to win three ICC T20 World Cup titles this year in the UAE and Oman. The Caribbean squad has managed to make a direct foray into the Super 12 stage of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. Captained by all-rounder Kieron Pollard, the mega-event is witness to a squad that strikes the perfect balance between youth and experience. While on one hand, the squad boasts players like Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo, who played in the first T20 World Cup back in 2007, it is also fueled by the young energy of the likes of Jason Holder, Kieron Pollard, and more. It is interesting to note, however, that SulinNarine was excluded from the tournament despite his superb form in various T20 leagues across the world. According to Roger Harper, the chief selector of West Indies, Narine could not meet the fitness requirements.
Coming to the team’s performance in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021, West Indies was dismissed by England in the match held on 23rd October for just 55 runs. What’s more, this was the lowest score by a Test-playing nation in the history of the T20 World Cup, and from an overall perspective, it is the third-lowest score. Eventually, England managed to chase down the target with six wickets and well over ten overs to spare. West Indies’ batting performance was below par, but to be fair, they were sharp on the field and delivered a decent bowling performance.
However, the match on the 26th of October again saw South Africa beating West Indies, the defending champions by eight wickets. Opener Evi Lewis struck the right chord from the word go with a fine half-century, making way for the team to restrict West Indies to 143/8. On top of that, South Africa batsmen overhauled the target with ten balls to spare. Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram, and Reeza Hendricks delivered brilliant knocks as West Indies bowlers looked on helplessly.

What Fun88 Predicts- Australia vs West Indies
The upcoming Australia vs West Indies T20 match is surely going to be a make-or-break scenario for the latter. Having been one of the pre-tournamentfavourites, thanks to the powerhouse batting and the all-rounders that add depth to their squad, West Indies have lost both encounters against England and South Africa as their batsmen failed to rise to the occasion.
Australia on the other hand, has managed to maintain a consistent position, which makes them more bankable, going by present circumstances. Though initially West Indies was believed to have a team packed with power-hitters and skilled bowlers that may drive them to their third title, the recent matches have shown otherwise.
