WI vs AUS Preview:
After successfully winning the T20 series 4-1, West Indies will now play a 3-match ODI series against Australia, starting from July 21st. West Indies last played an ODI in March, where they comfortably whitewashed Sri Lanka 3-0. Kieron Pollard, who missed out on the T20I series due to injury, is back in the squad.
Meanwhile, adding to their wounds, Australia will miss skipper Aaron Finch for the 1st ODI due to knee injury and wicket-keeper batter Alex Carey will lead the team in his absence. The last time they played an ODI was in December 2020, when they won the series 2-1 against India. Australia are a completely different side in the 50-over format and we can expect them to bounce back in this series.
Pitch Condition & Weather Report:
It’s one of the best wickets to bat in the West Indies. It’s a flat surface with not much assistance for the bowlers, though there will be a challenge for the batters in tackling the new ball. Whoever wins the toss should bat first.
Avg score: 157 (14 T20Is in St Lucia)

Probable best batsman of the match
Evin Lewis is in stunning form at the moment. He was the second-highest run-scorer for West Indies in the 3-match ODI series against Sri Lanka. He has scored 181 runs in 3 matches at an average of 60.33, with the highest score of 103.
Moises Henriques has been in and out of the Australian squad so many times. Now, the New South Wales star has a point to prove. He has scored 105 runs in his ODI career and has picked up 8 wickets as well.
Mitchell Marsh had a fantastic T20I series on the Caribbean soil with both bat and ball. He is expecting the same performances in the ODIs as well. In his ODI career, he has accumulated 1615 runs in 56 innings and scalped 49 wickets as well.
Jason Holder gives a perfect balance for West Indies in the 50-over format. His return will be a big boost for his side. Holder has picked up 139 wickets in 118 ODI matches and has scored 1837 runs with the bat.
