AUSL vs WIL Match Preview
This is turning out to be a tough tournament for the Aussie legends. The Shane Watson-led side has picked up just a single win so far in the competition against Bangladesh. They lost the other game they played in the competition. West Indies will be the next opponent for Australia in the 4th match they are playing. This game is vital for the prospects of Australia in the Road Safety World Series, 2022.
After winning a couple of games from the four they played in the Road Safety World Series, 2022 the Caribbeans are on a roll. They did not lose the other two games. Those games were washed away due to rain. In case they succeed in beating Australia in this match, they will surpass the Indian Legends in the points table.
We are likely to get overcast conditions during this game in Dehradun. There are good chances of rain coming down during the match and playing foul.
This game between Australia Legends and West Indies Legends will be played at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Dehradun. This surface is excellent for batters. You can expect both teams to notch up a huge score in the game. Bowlers are likely to struggle on this track.

West Indies legends are off to a flier in the competition. They won both their games where play was possible. Their other couple of games were washed out due to rain. The Australia Legends also missed out on one game due to rain today. But they are off to a shaky start by losing one match and winning one. But Australia is too good a side to stay out of contention for long though. We expect them to stage a comeback and win this match.
Dwayne Smith: Smith has had a great time in the recent past for the West Indies legends. He has scored more than 300 runs from just 6 outings and at a fair strike rate as well. We expect him to come good in this game.
Brett Lee: Brett Lee was a fearsome fast bowler in his time. Although he might not be as quick these days as he used to be, he is still a good bowler. You can expect him to deliver the goods for Australia again.
Brad Hodge: Brad Hodge is an underrated cricketer for Australia Legends. He has provided many good breakthroughs for his team over the years. He looks to be in good touch at the moment with the ball.
Sulieman Benn: Sulieman Benn is an in-form bowler for West Indies. He has picked up 12 wickets from his last 8 games. We expect him to come good again in this match.
