We are into the 17th game of the Road Safety World Series T20 2022. Australia Legends would be up against the West Indies Legends in this game. The two teams come here with their previous games abandoned due to rain. Australia’s game against South Africa Legends was washed out for the second day, while West Indies had the safe fate against New Zealand Legends.
It will be an important game for the Australians as they must win this one to keep hopes alive for a berth in the semifinals. The side has won just one game so far and has been in poor form. West Indies has shown good shape and hasn’t lost any game. The side shall like to drive this momentum ahead and defeat the Australians in this game.
It has been poor luck for Shane Watson’s side. Their batsmen haven’t been in the best shape. They have seen rains spoil their momentum in the last two games after the side had defeated Bangladesh Legends. The side would need to come up with a team effort in this do-or-die contest and keep their chances alive for the semifinal.
Shane Watson and Cameron White must do well at the start of the innings as they have been in good form. The middle order hasn’t made contributions, and the team would need runs from Brad Hodge, Callum Ferguson, and Ben Dunk in this game. Nathan Reardon did well in one of the games, and he must add quick runs along with John Hastings.
The side would need early wickets from Brett Lee and George Horlin in the game as West Indies have a strong batting line-up. Dirk Nannes must do well in the middle overs of the game. They would also expect a better show from Bryce McGain, John Hastings, and Watson, who have leaked runs in previous games.

Brian Lara would be happy with the performance of his side. They have won two games while the remaining ones have been washed away. Their batsmen have been in good form, which would make the side confident. Lara would like to register a big win here and enter the semifinals.
Dwayne Smith and William Perkins are enjoying their time at the crease, and the pair shall look to provide a good start. Lara shall look to bring his experience to play in this game and set up partnerships with Navin Stewart and Narsingh Deonarine. Kirk Edwards and Danza Hyatt add to the side’s batting strength down the order.
Krishmar Santokie and Daren Powell must strike early in the game as Australians have big hitters of the ball at the top. Sulieman Benn shall enjoy these conditions, and he would like to take advantage of it here. Devendra Bishoo and Smith complete a strong attack for the team.

Dehradun will see cloudy skies on September 25, and the batting conditions shall be challenging. Fast bowlers would enjoy bowling on this track, and batters must play to the merit of the ball. The side batting first would need to make 150 runs to feel safe on this wicket.
Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, Dehradun, assists fast bowlers as they generate bounce and pace from the surface. Batsmen have done well at this venue as they can play their strokes easily. Spinners have to rely on their variations, as there isn’t much on this track.
Fast bowlers get to move the ball at Dehradun, and batting is never easy at the start of the game. Teams have won more games at this venue, chasing scores. The side winning the toss would look to bowl first and restrict the opponents to a small total.
Australia hasn’t found its mojo in the tournament. Their batsmen have been in poor form, hurting the side’s fortunes. It is a high-pressure contest for them and shall test their resolve. West Indies has been in excellent shape and they haven’t lost a game yet. It would make them favorites in this contest.
