Australia has made a strong statement with dominating wins in the ODIs and aims to continue their form into the T20Is as well. Mitchell Marsh will be the Captain of the Australia team in the T20I series this time.  Travis Head has been rested for this series, and it will be interesting to see who will open the innings with David Warner. Most probably, it will be Josh Inglis, who opened the innings in ODIs as well.  Matt Short is out injured from the team.

West Indies, on the other hand, did not perform well in white-ball cricket after their historic win in the Gabba Test. They will look to make a comeback in their favoured format, T20Is, in this match. Rovman Powell will captain the West Indian team in this series.
