Former champions West Indies face off against Australia in the ICC World T20 2016 warm-up tie at the historic Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata on Thursday. West Indies, who have been in a moderate form in this format of the game, would look to test their bench strength for one final time, as they lost their opening warm-up tie to India on Thursday. While Australia, on the other hand, would look to get their combinations right and straight, as they look to test their bench strength perfectly in the sub-continental conditions and earn their first ever title. Both the teams are set for a thriller in this tie. LIVE CRICKET SCORECARD: Australia vs West Indies, ICC World T20 2016, warm-up match at Eden Gardens, Kolkata

Australia, although they lost the T20I series against India back home, they were strong enough to bounce back, as they toured South Africa for a three-match T20I series and managed to tame the Proteas in their backyard, while Australia won the series 2-1. They will look to come up with a similar performance as such as they look to win their maiden World T20 crown. West Indies, on the other hand, who have been in a moderate form in this format of the game, drew the two-match T20I series against Sri Lanka earlier in 2015, and would look to get things straight as they aim to repeat the heroics of the 2012 World T20 winning championship team and become the first team to win the title twice.
