New Delhi: The ODI Tri-series in Caribbean islands has reached an interesting level. All three teams -- South Africa, Australia and West Indies -- have won and lose two games each. The equation makes today's tie between hosts West Indies and world champions Australia all more important.
The 8th match of the series is scheduled to take place today at Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, Barbados.
Last match of the Tri-series was between South Africa and Australia but it was washed out due to rain. Now the equation is simple, if Jason Holder-led team defeat Australia in the match, they will play the finals with South Africa.
However, if Australia beat West Indies, then they will seal a spot in the final and in that situation, West Indies and South Africa would play off for the other spot on Friday.
For the record, no team in this tournament has yet won consecutive matches.
Here is everything you need to know about the match.
West Indies: Jason Holder (C), Johnson Charles, Andre Fletcher, Darren Bravo, Marlon Samuels, Kieron Pollard, Jonathan Carter, Carlos Brathwaite, Denesh Ramdin, Ashley Nurse, Suleiman Benn, SunilNarine, Jerome Taylor and Shannon Gabriel.
Australia: Aaron Finch, David Warner, Scott Boland Usman Khawaja, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Steven Smith, George Bailey, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Matthew Wade, James Faulkner, Mitchell Starc, Travis Head, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood, John Hastings.
