Doug Bollinger might be the man to make way for Faulkner, given the abundance of left-armers in the side. Cameron White is the only backup batsman in the group but it is difficult to see how he would squeeze in.
Australia (possible) 1 Aaron Finch, 2 David Warner, 3 Shane Watson, 4 Glenn Maxwell, 5 George Bailey (capt), 6 Brad Hodge, 7 Brad Haddin (wk), 8 James Faulkner, 9 Mitchell Starc, 10 Nathan Coulter-Nile, 11 Brad Hogg.
After their win over Bangladesh, West Indies may be inclined to go in with an unchanged line-up, however, there are some doubts on Gayle’s fitness. Gayle appeared to have been hampered by a sore ankle against Bangladesh, but team management has been unwilling to reveal the exact nature of the injury. Darren Sammy downplayed its severity, however, suggesting Gayle will play.
West Indies (possible) 1 Dwayne Smith, 2 Chris Gayle, 3 Lendl Simmons, 4 Marlon Samuels, 5 Dwayne Bravo, 6 Darren Sammy (capt), 7 Andre Russell, 8 Denesh Ramdin (wk), 9 Sunil Narine, 10 Samuel Badree, 11 Krishmar Santokie.
Look Out For:
Allrounder James Faulkner appears set to make his return from a knee injury that has kept him out of action since the end of the one-day series against England in January. Faulkner will add balance and aggression to this Australian outfit and West Indies have seen first-hand that he does not back down on the field. He was fined for giving Chris Gayle a send-off in an ODI in Canberra in 2012-13 and this week when asked about West Indies, he said: “I don’t particularly like them”. After a comment like that, the feeling might be mutual.
The No.2-ranked T20 international bowler in the world – behind his team-mate Narine – Samuel Badree is fresh from a four-wicket haul against Bangladesh and his legspin will again be important on the slowish surface in Mirpur. Badree has played the Australians only once in an international and on that occasion he took the new ball and got rid of both openers, David Warner and Shane Watson.
