Australia Women completed a clean sweep against the West Indies Women in the third and final ODI as they comfortably chased down a total of 181 with eight wickets to spare. The two sides lock horns again in the first T20I of the three-match series. The Aussies will be aiming to maintain their supremacy while the Windies still search for their first win on this home tour.
Clear Sunny conditions are anticipated with extremely few chances of rain and temperature ranging around the higher twenties expected during the game.

No notable injury concerns reported.
Probable Playing XI:
This is a star-studded Australian batting line-up with each batter finding themselves in impeccable form. Every single player in the top six can single-handedly win the game for their side. Also, all eyes will be on Megan Schutt after she became the first Australian woman to take an ODI hat-trick.
Alyssa Healy(w), Rachael Haynes, Meg Lanning(c), Ellyse Perry, Beth Mooney, Ashleigh Gardner, Jess Jonassen, Nicola Carey, Georgia Wareham, Megan Schutt, Tayla Vlaeminck
West Indies Women:
Thus far, it has turned out to be a nightmare series for the Windies but the home team does possess a number of promising talents that could bring about a change in their fortunes. Stacy-Ann King is a dependable batsman at the top while Afy Fletcher can pick up some vital wickets in the middle stages of the innings.
Reniece Boyce(w), Stacy-Ann King, Kyshona Knight, Stafanie Taylor(c), Sheneta Grimmond, Natasha McLean, Britney Cooper, Chinelle Henry, Afy Fletcher, Shamilia Connell, Karishma Ramharack
Ellyse Perry and Meg Lanning should be a part of your Dream11 Team as the duo have been prolific with the willow in hand whilst the former can also contribute in the bowling department. Other viable picks would be Alyssa Healy and Ashleigh Gardner courtesy of their superb batting prowess and knack of plundering runs at a destructive rate.
