AUS vs WI Match Details

Match: Australia vs West Indies, 1st Test | West Indies tour of Australia

Time: 07:50 (GMT+5.5) / 08.20 (GMT+6)

Venue: Perth Stadium, Perth 

AUS vs WI Preview

  • With six victories from ten games, Australia currently holds the first spot in the WTC points- standings.
  • In this WTC cycle, West Indies have failed to win a Test at a neutral site.
  • Australia defeated England 4-1 at home to win their most recent Test.


On Wednesday morning in Perth, Western Australia, the first of two Test Matches between Australia and the West Indies begins. The oldest and longest international format of cricket returns in this matchup after almost three months of exclusively ODI and IT20 games. At 10:20 local time, this Test begins at Perth Stadium. 

Since the final game in the 2021–22 Men’s Ashes, Australia has not played a Test Match at home. They dominated the series, and we anticipate that they will be very challenging to beat in this Test.

Despite their lengthy struggles in Test cricket, West Indies enter this series in excellent shape. It will be a very difficult match in Perth despite the fact that they haven’t dropped any of their last five Tests. 

AUS vs WI Weather Report

The first day of the test is expected to be partly cloudy with a high of 32 degrees Celsius. The cloud cover would probably be present even though the temperature would start to drop after the second day.

AUS vs WI Match Toss Prediction

There have only been two Test matches played here so far, and both were won by the team batting first. After the game’s first two innings, the average score is much lower than it was. If their team wins the toss, both would be eager to choose to bat first.

AUS vs WI Pitch Report

The pitch also has some bounce, pace, and movement for bowlers.

Australia is fully prepared for this first Test of the summer after a disappointing title defense of their T20 World Cup on home soil earlier this month. The team for this game does not even include the spinner Mitchell Swepson, a member of the starting XI in their previous Test in Sri Lanka.

Even though West Indies has already had several outstanding performances in this format this year, their team still lags well behind the depth and skill of the Australians. The odds are in Australia’s favour to easily win this Test.
