West Indies will take on Zimbabwe at the Manuka Oval in Canberra to at 10pm Jamaican time with a chance to move to second position in the points table in Pool B.
Both teams have resurrected their World Cup campaigns after losing their opening matches. While Zimbabwe saw off the United Arab Emirates, West Indies had every reason to be satisfied with its fabulous 150-run victory over Pakistan.
Still, Chris Gayle’s lack of runs at the top is a cause for concern. The hard hitting Gayle has not done so well at the previous World Cup tournaments and the bad spell continues thus far. Despite his failures however, the West Indies has crossed 300 in both their matches at this World Cup, with Lendl Simmons, Darren Sammy and Andre Russell getting vital runs for the Caribbean team in the middle order.
West Indies will have to make one change, with Jonathan Carter likely to come in for the injured Darren Bravo, while Zimbabwe could restore Chamu Chibhabha to the top of the order after he missed the UAE game through injury.
This game promises to be a big one for both team as this can be the decider of which one of them makes it to the quarter-final despite having stronger opponents to play still.
