Australia crushed the West Indies in 1st ODI. After the injury of Aaron Finch, Alex Carey was appointed the captain and he fantastically led the team to victory. Australia was coming after the T20 series defeat and they looked extremely motivated after that series loss. Australia also handed debuts to Ben McDermott, Josh Philippe, and Wes agar. Australia posted a competitive total of 252 on a two-paced wicket of Barbados.
Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood destroyed the West Indies lineup in the 2nd innings. They both picked 6 wickets in the first 10 overs only. Especially against Mitchell Starc, batsmen looked uncomfortable because of his pace. In the batting department, Alex Carey scored a fifty, and Ashton Turner scored a good 49. Going into the 2nd ODI, they will look to seal the series and keep their ODI form continue.

West Indies lost 1st ODI match quite comprehensively. Bowling was good in 1st innings and restricted Australians to a par total. Hayden Walsh was the pick of the bowler, as he wicket his maiden fifer in ODIs. Before the 1st ODI, West Indies had lost their premier batsmen Shai Hope and his absence was completely noticeable. Against the duo of Mitchell Starc and Hazlewood, their batsmen looked flat.
West Indies will look to bounce back in this ODI and level the series. West Indies had a new opening combination of Evin Lewis and Shimron Hetmyer in 1st ODI but if Shai Hope returns, it can lead to exclusion of Jason Mohammad from playing XI. Kieron Pollard looked good after coming back from injury and scored a fighting fifty, which is a good sign for West Indies. Pollard will be hoping that bowlers continue in the same fashion and batsmen step up to support them.
- West Indies has only won 1 ODI against Australia in the last 12 encounters.
- Evin Lewis has an average of 45.25 in 2021 ODIs.
- Kieron Pollard has scored the most runs (679) against Australia in his ODI career.

In the last ODI, the Barbados pitch was very two-paced. Barbados is not a high-scoring ground and we can expect another tight contest between bat and ball. The pitch became very difficult to bat in the 2nd innings and the bowling team made the most of it. Captains will look to bat first and put runs on the board and make most of the slow pitch in the 2nd innings.

WI vs Aus– Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:
Australia is expected to win the match against West Indies
KhelTalk experts feel Australia will win against West Indies. Australia is in great ODI form at the moment. They have defeated England and India in the last 2 series. In 1st ODI, even with an inexperienced batting order, the Aussie batters showed great courage on the slow pitch. On the other hand, West Indies looked like they have not switched from T20 mode. West Indies batters were impatient and paid the price of it. We expect Australia to win this match and seal the series.
Popular Betting Odds For WI vs. AUS, 2nd ODI, Today Match Prediction, Cricket Betting Tips
Top Batsman from Australia – Mitchell Marsh (Odds- 4.00)
Mitchell Marsh has looked in magnificent touch in this tour. After finishing as top scorer for Australia in the T20 series, he again looked in great touch in the 1st ODI. He scored a firm 22 runs before being dismissed to Alzarri Joseph in a controversial decision. His stats in ODIs are not good according to his ability, but in recent times he has looked solid. He is now playing at no.3 for Australia in this tour and certainly, this number has suited him. Given his form, he can score big runs in the 2nd ODI. He is our pick for the top batsman.
Top Batsman from West Indies – Evin Lewis (Odds- 4.25)
Evin Lewis is considered as the most destructive batsman in the world. He was in and out of the team recently but he has cemented his spot after a good T20 series. Evin Lewis was dismissed on the very first ball by Mitchell Starc. He would want to settle the score in the 2nd match. West Indies relies on him very much at the top order and his form is key for them. He scores big runs if he settles down and can give you big returns. He is our top pick of batsmen from the West Indies.
Top Bowler from West Indies– Hayden Walsh (Odds- 3.75)
Hayden Walsh has continued his form from the T20I series. He was the top wicket-taker in the T20 series with 12 wickets at an economy of less than 7. He again picked wickets and claimed a maiden fifer in 1st ODI. Hayden Walsh’s variation has won praises from everyone. Aussies have looked blank against him. He is becoming a key part of this white ball setup of Kieron Pollard’s team. Aussie batters are clueless against him and given his form he is obviously the top bowler picked from the West Indies.
Top Bowler from Australia– Mitchell Starc (Odds- 3.20)
Mitchell Starc looked back to his very best in 1st ODI. He claimed another fifer against West Indies. After a disappointing T20 series, Mitchell Starc looked very fast and furious. He and Josh Hazlewood sent more than half of the West Indies team back to the pavilion in the first 10 overs. He has a fantastic record against West Indies. He has picked 26 wickets against West Indies in just 8 matches. Mitchell Starc has again proved why he is one the best ODI bowler in this world. You can’t keep out Mitchell Starc when he is in this lethal form so he is our pick for top Bowler from Australia.
