Host West Indies will take on Australia in the 1st T20I of a five-match series at the Darren Sammy Cricket Stadium in St. Lucia on Saturday.
Kieron Pollard-led unit lost their previous five-match T20I series against South Africa by a scoreline of 3-2. The home side did a lot of experimentation and will be looking to continue to find their best combination for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup to be played later this year.
On the other hand, Australia will be without Steven Smith, Pat Cummins, David Warner, and Marnus Labuschagne for the T20I series. Opener Aaron Finch will lead the side for the five-match T20I series.
Mitchell Swepson, Riley Meredith, Josh Philippe, Ben McDermott, and Wes Agar are players picked for the tour of West Indies after performing well for their franchises in the Big Bash League played last year.
The visitors will be looking to turn their fortunes in the shortest format of the game after losing their previous three T20I series.
