Australia and West Indies would be involved in two T20I games before the 2022 T20 World Cup. The first of them will happen on October 5th at the Carrara Oval in Queensland. Here, we look at the pitch report of Carrara Oval and the weather conditions in Queensland for AUS vs WI 2022.
Although they performed well, Australia failed to defeat India in the three-match T20I series. The Aussies will be keen to improve their performances leading up to the marquee event. The management will want the likes of Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell to hit form at the right moment.
On the other hand, West Indies will target to spring a surprise in T20 WC. They are now considered underdogs. Hence, they will be under less pressure at the event. If they can utilize the talent in the squad, they can surely go on to defeat some tough teams. For that, they first need to do well against Australia.

The Carrara Oval or the Metricon Stadium has so far seen only one T20I encounter. This game was held way back in 2018 between Australia and South Africa.
That match was reduced to 10 overs and South Africa scored 108 in the first innings. Australia scored 87 and could not complete the chase. Glenn Maxwell was the highest scorer of the game with 38 runs while Chris Morris‘ 2/12 was the best bowling display. Both teams might not take these statistics very seriously as it is a small sample size to derive a pattern.
