- Chris Gayle passed 14,000 T20 runs whilst top scoring for West Indies in Tuesday’s IT20. He hit 7 sixes and is a good tip for West Indies’ highest run scorer in this clash. Hayden Walsh took 2-18 to follow-up his 6 wickets across the opening 2 matches. He is an excellent choice for West Indies’ top wicket taker.
- Aaron Finch produced some runs for the first time in the series with 30 from 31 balls in the third IT20. This could be the turning point for him in the series and he is a reliable option for Australia’s leading run scorer. With the ball, Mitchell Starc recorded 1-15 on Tuesday, his best figures of the series and is a strong contender for Australia’s top wicket taker.
- Nicholas Pooran hit 32* but didn’t contribute to any dismissals in the field in the third game of the series. Matthew Wade hit 23 from 16 balls at the top of the order and took the catch to dismiss Chris Gayle in the same game. We would suggest Matthew Wade as the top wicket-keeper in this match.

WI vs AUS Match Toss Prediction
Aaron Finch changed his approach and chose to bat first in the last IT20. However, that did not work for Australia so we envisage both captains to look to insert the opposition this time.
WI vs AUS Pitch Report
Australia were unable to pace their innings correctly on Tuesday. The wicket certainly has a score of 200+ in it although we would only expect that from West Indies currently.
Similar conditions to earlier in the week with perhaps slightly less cloud than in other games.
