How to watch Australia vs West Indies T20 World Cup live online in Australia
Australia and the West Indies have a cricketing rivalry going back to the 1960s. This could be another classic with plenty on the line for the Aussies.
Australia's net run rate was lagging well behind South Africa before their clash with Bangladesh on Thursday night.
That all changed though when they completely dominated that match, chasing down Bangladesh's lowly score of 73 in just 6.2 Overs.
The West Indies mathematically fell out of contention when they were defeated by 20 runs against Sri Lanka on Thursday. But Australia are very much alive in the hunt for the semi-finals.

Who will win Australia vs West Indies?
The West Indies have dominated recent matches with Australia at T20 level, claiming 7 victories from their last 8 matches. During that time they have averaged 185.2 runs with the bat as they have consistently got hold of the Australian attack.
This Aussie attack is very different on paper though and with the exception of the England game they've been performing extremely well. The West Indies can be inconsistent and they've been unable to find any real rhythm throughout this tournament. It's been a surprise for the 2-time T20 World Cup champions.
They can produce special performances every so often so Australia must be careful, but with a semi-final spot up for grabs we expect the Aussies to be too strong in the big moments. The form of Adam Zampa and Aaron Finch in particular looks to be a point of difference here.
