AUS vs WI – 2nd Test – Team Previews
Pat Cummins will be proud of his team as they scored a victory in the first test by 164 runs. The game was heading for a draw but the Australian bowlers did a commendable job on the last day of the game. Now, the Aussies will be eyeing to win the second Test as well and seal the series by 2-0. Australia is currently leading the charts of the World Test Championship and their series win against West Indies will be an extra push.
David Warner. Steven Smith and Marnus Labuschagne are in excellent form and Travis Head is making the middle order strong. Australians have good depth in their batting lineup and it was clearly visible in the first Test. Usman Khawaja gave a stable start to the team but he was unable to make any major contribution.
Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood bowled well on a placid track in Perth and will hunt for early wickets in this game. Cummins and Nathan Lyon have lots of experience bowling on this wicket, and the side would look for a good performance.
West Indies are going through a rough patch in international cricket across all the formats. The Jamaicans are not performing as per the expectations and the whole team is coming to the ground with low morale. The team management will be concerned about the same and they are in need of a win to change things in the camp.
Kraigg Brathwaite and Tagenarine Chanderpaul gave good momentum to the team in both innings but as soon as they were gone, none of the batters was able to handle the Australian attack. The side would need better efforts in the middle order from Nkrumah Bonner, Jermaine Blackwood, and Kyle Mayers, who didn’t do well in the last game.
It is a shock to see the West Indies bowling being a big trouble for the team. The bowlers are unable to pick wickets and they are seen bowling some loose balls. Jason Holder must put his experience to good use in this game along with Alzzari Joseph. Mayers, Roston Chase, and Brathwaite would look to do well in the supporting role.
