Australia and West Indies are set to square off in the tenth fixture of the 2019 ICC World Cup today. The defending champions will be looking to continue their winning run in the upcoming match, while the Windies must be feeling confident after their resounding win against Pakistan last week. We can anticipate an enthralling contest when these two charismatic teams will battle it out at Trent Bridge.

Australia are one of the most lethal sides in this edition of the World Cup, owing to their balanced squad. In their opening game, Australia registered a comprehensive seven-wicket win against Afghanistan. Chasing 207, David Warner played the anchor role to take his team over the line. The reigning champions would be hoping for another clinical performance against the Windies at Trent Bridge. With match winners such as Warner, Steve Smith and Mitchell Starc in their ranks, Australian have the potential to go all the way in this tournament.

Meanwhile, West Indies scripted an emphatic win in their World Cup opener against Pakistan. After bowling the Asians out for just 105, the Caribbeans chased down the total inside 13.5 overs. Often regarded as the dark horses, the West Indies team possess a lot of fireworks to surprise their opponents. Jason Holder has also been a tremendous leader for the young Windies side, who look to play the same aggressive brand of cricket for which they were feared for once. West Indies would be eyeing another dominant performance when they take on the Australians.
