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

Australia can be the most lethal side in this edition of the World Cup with their balanced squad. In their opening game, the Kangaroos register a comprehensive 7-wicket win against Afghanistan. Chasing 207, David Warner played the anchor role in the run chase 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 like David Warner, Steve Smith and Mitch Starc in their ranks, the Australian team has 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 them out for just 105, the Caribbean chased down the total inside 13.5 to announce their arrival in style. Often regarded as the Dark Horses in this tournament, the West Indian 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 cricket which once they were feared for. West Indies would be eyeing for the same kind of dominant performance when they take on the Australian team today.
