West Indies vs Australia 2nd ODI Match Prediction Often a change within the format brings good luck to the team. Well, the old saying rang true for Australia as they put behind their horror show within the five-match T20I series against West Indies and began with a bang within the first ODI by winning the match by 133 runs during a rain-curtailed game of 49 overs each.
Alex Carey got off to a dream start on his captaincy debut and took the extra responsibility of anchoring the innings too by top-scoring for the team with patient 67 runs and helped Australia post a competitive score of 252 on the board. West Indies who are referred to as good chasers, floundered during the run-chase as Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood blew the house side to smithereens and bundled them to only 123.

While generally, the chasing team finds it a touch easier to bat second on this particular pitch, West Indies struggled against the pace of Starc and Hazlewood within the first ODI. But still, the house side will fancy themselves while chasing as they typically have an honest diary. While persistent rain marred the primary game, the forecast predicted is far better for the second game.

Alex Carey– Australia
He paced his innings well while scoring 67 within the first ODI and was there till 44 overs. He will look to continue with an equivalent momentum and help Australia seal the series within the second game itself. With a mean of 37.35 in 43 matches, the southpaw has started his ODI career on a bright note indeed.
Mitchell Starc– Australia
Starc loves the ODI format. in only 97 ODIs, he has taken an astonishing 189 wickets at a staggering average of twenty-two .81. The left-arm pacer isn’t only lethal with the new ball but equally potent with the old ball also. Again the onus of picking early wickets for Australia will rest on Starc.
