Match Betting Preview
Cricket World Twenty20, Group C, The Brit Oval 14.00
Australia will be looking to put a turbulent week behind them when they get their Twenty20 campaign started against West Indies at The Brit Oval today. After the latest Andrew Symonds incident Ricky Ponting will be happy to be just playing cricket again. This is the only tournament Australia have yet to win, warm up wins over Bangladesh and New Zealand are not great markers but you can only beat who is put in front off you.
West Indies will be hoping to put their disasterous series against England behind them. It remains to be seen if they get themselves out of the ‘we don’t want to be here’ mindset they seemed to be in against the English – if they can’t they could be embarressed here against the Aussies.
With David Warner and Chris Gayle at the top of their respective batting orders both innings could get off to explosive starts.
