West Indies vs Australia live streaming: When and where to watch WI vs AUS 1st T20I in India? A second-string Australia will kick off their preparations for the T20 World Cup 2021 as they take on Kieron Pollard-led West Indies in a five-match T20I series starting today (July 9 – July 10 in India). The tour has been hit with pullouts as 6 regulars pulled out of the series due to various reasons. Steve Smith was ruled out due to an elbow issue.
The list of players who pulled out included David Warner, Pat Cummins, Glenn Maxwell, Jhye Richardson, Marcus Stoinis and Kane Richardson. The visiting side will miss the services of regulars but it’s also an opportunity for the replacement players to perform well and earn a spot in the squad for the ICC event.
Ahead of the fixture, Australia head coach confirmed Daniel Christian and Mitchell Marsh’s inclusion in the playing XI. Christian hasn’t played for Australia since 2017.
The likes of Wes Agar, Jason Behrendorff, Riley Meredith and others are expected to be given a chance as the tour will progress.
West Indies have a strong squad at the helm and are favourites going into the series. Apart from Pollard, the squad includes Evin Lewis, Lendl Simmons, Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, Fidel Edwards and others. Their 3-2 defeat against South Africa isn’t a clear reflection of WI’s strength.
The five-match West Indies-Australia series will be played at Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in St Lucia. Following the T20Is, the two teams will square off in three ODIs in Barbados.
