All there’s know about the Australia tour of WI 2021

With the ICC T20 World Cup upon us, we see a barrage of preparatory tours. Take, for instance, Australia touring the Caribbean Islands for a white-ball series, featuring five T20Is and three ODIs. The West Indies is amid a hectic schedule, having hosted South Africa just a few days back and slated to host Pakistan once the Australia series is over. Both teams would all out to gain some momentum
leading up to the big event scheduled in the UAE in October 2021.

T20 Schedule:

Per the latest news about cricket, the T20 and ODI series are crammed into eight and five days respectively. The five T20Is are understandable, as the series is a dress rehearsal for the T20 World Cup where both teams would be trying out different combinations to zero in on the final eleven. The entire series would be played on just two venues to discourage infections.
