Weather & Pitch Report
The last time Australia played an ODI at Trent Bridge, they wound up being scammed by England, who scored 481/6 preceding winning by an astounding 242 runs. Captain Finch demanded that his team had attempted to abstain from discussing that misfortune and kidded about at any rate having the advantage of occupying the home changing area at the memorable ground. Be that as it may, it’s far-fetched that the Aussies will feel a lot at home against the rampaging West Indian batting line-up, particularly with the short limits all around the odd-molded ground. Only for the record, West Indies have just at any point lost one ODI in Nottingham – in 1984 – and have won 6 out of the 8 they have played here.
For all the discussion about bouncers and jaw music, the pitch for the match is similar that was utilized for the high-scoring England v Pakistan challenge. Furthermore, the signs as of now are that the wicket is significantly complimenting than the one that Russell and Co ricocheted Pakistan out on, and furthermore much drier as indicated by the individuals who got a decent take a gander at it. The two teams got a decent direct record of the conditions too with their batsmen battling more with the absence of ricochet during their particular stretches in the nets. Thursday is additionally expected to be an overcast day, and it may finish up being increasingly about what the ball does noticeable all around instead of what it does in the wake of being crushed on the pitch at a high pace.
Australia had spoken about Nathan Lyon as a choice when they face a team overwhelmed by left-handers. Furthermore, with any semblance of Chris Gayle, Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer and Nicholas Pooran in the main five, this likely could be their opportunity to test their off-turn alternative. The little square limits and the West Indian left-hander’s inclination to swing towards the on-side – with the exception of the more old style Bravo – ought to be a sufficient motivation to pick Lyon over Adam Zampa, who conceded 20 runs in an over to one side gave Najibullah Zadran in Bristol. Be that as it may, Australia hasn’t been enthusiastic about tinkering with their bowling choices generally particularly with regards to their turn office in ODIs.

There were some question marks about Gayle and Russell after the Pakistan game, however, the team was seen having extensive spells in the nets on Wednesday. Russell was among the first out as his teammates experienced their warm-up schedules, and heat that point spent almost half-hour striking balls. Gayle exited reporting, “The Universe Boss has landed” to a large number of picture takers collected under the changing area before cushioning up, putting on his headgear and occupying the nets for about 40 minutes. He at that point strolled to the focal point of the ground and experienced some representation schedules without anyone else’s input before strolling over to the net on the far side for another hit. He at that point additionally was seen moving his arm over for a couple of minutes, and considering he hasn’t confronted Australia in since his unceremonious exit from the Big Bash, be careful Australia.
