West Indies, on the other hand, will look to end their campaign on high after a defeat against Sri Lanka eliminated them from the competition. The defending champions have only won one game so far out of four matches and their senior players have struggled for form in the ICC event.

Still, the match could be the last West Indies game for a lot of veterans and they will want to give their best. Dwayne Bravo has already confirmed that he will retire from international cricket after the Australia game. Chris Gayle is also expected to retire in near future.

Australia won their last game against Bangladesh by eight wickets thanks to a brilliant bowling display. Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc struck early while Adam Zampa took 5/19 as the opponents were bowled out for 73.

Aaron Finch will hope for another good bowling performance in the important clash against West Indies. Their batting hasn’t been the best so far, and that is an area where the Australians will look to improve. David Warner and Glenn Maxwell — two of the stalwarts of Australia’s batting will be in focus against West Indies who hope for a memorable farewell.
