West Indies and Australia will square off at Providence Stadium, Guyana in the second ODI of the tri-nation series. The third country participating in this series is South Africa. They lost their first game (played against West Indies) which was also the opening match of this tournament by 4 wickets and with 11 balls remaining. Thus, West Indies will be positive going into the second match of this series in which they are facing the mighty Australians. The Caribbeans have home advantage as well, but they would certainly not want to get lose against a champion team like Australia. Jason Holder will captain the West Indies team while Steven Smith will call the shots for Australia. Full Cricket Scorecard: West Indies vs Australia, 2nd ODI Match, Australia and South Africa in West Indies Tri-Series, 2016

The third match of the series is between Australia and South Africa which is tabled for Tuesday. There are nine matches in total in this tournament before the final which is scheduled for June 26. Today’s game is extremely critical for both the teams. Australia are quite sanguine that they will get off to an awesome start in this series. West Indies, on the other hand will want to carry on the winning momentum from the last game. Kieron Pollard, who scored a run-a-ball 67 against South Africa, will be one of the major players in West Indies team. Jerome Taylor and Jason Holder contributed with four and three-wicket hauls respectively in the last match. Hence, they will be important for West Indies in their game against Australia as well.

Dwayne Bravo, Sunil Narine and Carlos Brathwaite are other major players in the West Indies side. Playing against the likes of Mitchell Starc, Glenn Maxwell, James Faulkner, David Warner, Adam Zampa and Nathan Lyon is never going to be easy. The pitch is anticipated to give assistance to spin bowling. The team which better capitalises on this aspect of the game will gain a crucial edge in the match.
