WI vs AUS LIVE – West Indies vs Australia LIVE: Even though it was a close contest between both sides, there are few changes that Aaron Finch can make ahead of the T20I. We at Insidesport will take you through three changes that Australia can make to bounce back in the series. 

WI vs AUS, 2nd T20I: Bowl Aston Agar in Powerplay

West Indies opening batsman Lendl Simmons and Evin Lewis are terrific batters against pace. They have proved time and again in the South Africa series as well as in the first T20I. Aaron Finch can try left-arm spinner Aston Agar in the powerplay overs to tame West Indies openers. One more thing that can push Aaron Finch to bowl spinners in the powerplay is the fact that there are as many as three left-hand batters in Windies middle order. Thus Finch could look to use his spinners in the initial overs.

WI vs AUS, 2nd T20I: Shift Matthew Wade in middle-order

WI vs AUS LIVE – West Indies vs Australia LIVE: Australia wicket-keeper batsman Mattew Wade showed a glimpse of form in the first T20I of the series where he scored 33 runs in 14 balls with the help of three sixes and one four. However, there was no one in the middle order who could take the charge of the opposition. There was a lack of experience in the Australian middle-order which can be dealt with if Finch decides to shift Wade in the middle order. Josh Philippe, who has the experience of opening the batting in league cricket can open with Finch.

WI vs AUS, 2nd T20I: Game plan against Andre Russell 

WI vs AUS LIVE – West Indies vs Australia LIVE: Andre Russell’s 28 balls 51 runs were the difference between both sides. Windies were struggling at 65-4 but his explosive innings with the help of five sixes and three fours changed the complexion of the game. Finch and co. can attack Russell with a better plan. In the recent past, he has struggled with bouncers and Australia have pacers like Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Riley Meredith who could bowl at near 140 kmph.
