The Australian team has been extremely disappointing with the bat so. Except for Mitchell Marsh, the rest of their batters have not shown enough promise to score big. With Windies leading 2-0, the Australians will have to turn up with a special performance on Tuesday to keep them alive in the series.
Although West Indies will start the third T20I as favourites, the Aussies are a team that should not be discounted.
Match: West Indies vs Australia, Third T20I

The pitch will offer some assistance to the pacers as well as the spinners. Anything around 160 will be a par score on this track. Teams will choose to bat first after winning the toss, as the pitch will get slower as the game progresses.
