Betting Tips
  • Steve Smith has a Test average of 60.00 and has been in excellent ODI form over recent weeks. He is our tip for Australia’s highest run scorer in this Test. With the ball, Pat Cummins needs one dismissal to bring up 200 Test wickets and the skipper is well worth backing as Australia’s top wicket taker in Perth.
  • Captain Kraigg Brathwaite has made six scores of 50+ across his last six Tests and the opener is our pick for West Indies’ highest run scorer in this match. Alzarri Joseph has had a very impressive 2022 across all formats and the pace bowler is a strong choice for West Indies’ top wicket taker in this match.
  • We recommend backing Pat Cummins to take over 4.5 wickets across this Test.

AUS vs WI 1st Test Match Prediction & Betting Tips

The first of two Test Matches between Australia and West Indies gets underway on Wednesday morning in Perth, Western Australia. After almost three months of only ODI and IT20 cricket, the oldest and longest international format makes a return in this fixture. Read on as we preview this opening game of the series. This Test gets underway at the Perth Stadium at 10:20 local time.

Australia have not played a Test Match at home since the final game of the 2021-22 Men’s Ashes. They were dominant in that series and we expect them to be very hard to beat in this Test.

West Indies have struggled in Test cricket for many years but come into this series in strong form. However, even though they haven’t lost any of their last five Tests, this will be a very tough match in Perth.

AUS vs WI Match Toss Prediction

The two previous Test Matches at the Perth Stadium have both been won comfortably by the team who batted first and we expect both skippers to elect to bat first if they win the toss.

Australia Team News & Playing 11

AUS Team News

After a disappointing defence of their T20 World Cup title on home soil earlier this month, Australia are at full strength ahead of this opening Test of the summer. Spinner Mitchell Swepson, who was part of the XI in their last Test in Sri Lanka, is not even in the squad for this game.

AUS Key Players

  • Steve Smith - The former captain made scores of 80 not out and 94 during the ODI series win over England earlier this month. Ahead of this Test, he is looking like he is back to his brilliant best.
  • Cameron Green - The 23 year old all-rounder made his international debut only two years ago but he is already a permanent fixture in the Test side. He is capable of winning a session with aggressive batting or accurate bowling.
  • Pat Cummins - Since taking on the Test captaincy ahead of the 2021-22 Men’s Ashes, the pace bowler has taken his bowling to another level. He is equally capable of scoring quick runs down the order with the bat.

AUS Team Form

Although Australia drew their last Test series in Sri Lanka and won the previous one in Pakistan, they have won only two of their last five Tests.

West Indies Team News & Playing 11

WI Team News

The visitors won their last Test by 10 wickets against Bangladesh in late June to complete a 2-0 away series win. The majority of the players who took part in that victory and the series win over England will be in the team for this opening Test.

WI Key Players

  • Kraigg Brathwaite - The right-handed opener is an old-school Test opener who likes to occupy the crease. He needs 107 runs to bring up 5000 in this format and the pitch in Perth is a good one for batting.
  • Kyle Myers - The left-handed middle-order batter had a strong white ball summer at home and hit 146 in the last Test against Bangladesh. He is a dominant presence at the wicket.
  • Alzarri Joseph - The quick bowler has excelled in everything from the IPL, to the T20 Blast to Tests over the course of 2022. He has taken three wickets in each of his last four innings in Test cricket.

WI Team Form

West Indies have won their last three Tests and are looking to make it four victories in a row, something they have only achieved once since 1993.

West Indies Predicted Playing 11

Kraigg Brathwaite (c), Jermain Blackwood, Nkrumah Bonner, Kyle Mayers, Shamarh Brooks, Roston Chase, Josh Da Silva (wk), Jason Holder, Alzarri Joseph, Jayden Seales, Kemar Roach

Who will win Australia vs West Indies 1st Test Match?

West Indies’ recent victories have come over England and Bangladesh, both sides who had fragile batting line-ups. Australia score heavily at home and they will be very hard to beat.

AUS vs WI Top Team Batsmen

We are backing Steve Smith, David Warner and Usman Khawaja as Australia's batting picks. Steve Smith has the top odds with the bookies, a reflection of his recent strong form in home internationals. Khawaja averages 98.66 in Tests in 2022 and the left-hander is making the most of his recall to the team.

Kraigg Brathwaite, Nkrumah Bonner and Kyle Mayers are our selections with the bat for West Indies. Brathwaite is averaging 70.41 in this format this year and the bookmakers are backing him to make a big score. Mayers has the ability to attack the best bowlers in the world and Australia will be wary of his power.

AUS vs WI Top Team Bowlers

Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc are our tips with the ball for Australia. All three have equal odds and the bookmakers know that they are all capable of blowing away an opposition batting line-up. Starc bowled very well in the ODI series against England after being dropped from the IT20 side and will still be looking to prove a point.

Our bowling recommendations are Jayden Seales, Kemar Roach and Alzarri Joseph for West Indies. 21 year old Seales has taken 36 wickets from nine Tests and is favourite with the bookmakers to be the visitors’ top bowler. Roach is very experienced and needs only eight wickets to become West Indies’ fifth highest Test wicket taker of all time.

Australia vs West Indies Prediction

Neither team had a successful T20 World Cup and both will be relishing the opportunity to return to red-ball cricket in this Test. Although West Indies have produced some brilliant results in this format already this year, their team is still a long way behind the skills and depth of the Australians. We are expecting Australia to win this Test by a comfortable margin.

Final Verdict

Australia are favorites to beat West Indies at the odds of 1.12
