Defending champions West Indies will play their last T20 World Cup 2021 match tomorrow against Australia at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium. Veteran Caribbean all-rounder Dwayne Bravo will bid farewell to international cricket after the match.

Despite having a star-studded squad, West Indies have not been able to perform well in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021, having suffered three defeats in four matches. Their only win came against qualifiers Bangladesh, that too by a very small margin.

Caribbean fans will hope for a solid showing from their team when they take on Australia tomorrow afternoon at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium. Ahead of the match, let's take a look at some vital numbers you need to know from previous T20I matches played in Abu Dhabi.
