Australia vs West Indies 2nd Test: In what promises to be a thrilling encounter, the West Indies and Australia are all set to lock horns against each other in the second and final test match of the two-match test series. It will be a day-night test match, and the match will be played between the two sides tomorrow at Brisbane’s iconic cricket ground, The Gabba. The game will start at 9:30 a.m. IST and 14:00 p.m. local time. The Pat Cummins-led Aussies currently lead the two-match series 1-0

The hosts won the first test easily by 10 wickets within the first three days, and they would be looking to whitewash the visitors with a victory in the second test. Opting to bowl first in the Adelaide Test match, the hosts dismissed all the players of the visitors for 188 runs in the first inning. Kirk Mckenzie (50 runs) was the only Windies batter to score a half century. Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood took four wickets each, while Nathan Lyon and Mitchell Starc were satisfied with one wicket.

The Aussies scored 283 runs in their first inning, as Travis Head (119 runs) was the best Aussie batter. Debutant Shamar Joseph picked up his maiden five-wicket haul and helped his side restrict the visitors to a below-par total. In reply, the Aussies bundled out the Windies for a mere 120 runs in the second innings thanks to a fifer from Josh Hazlewood (5/35) and a brace of wickets from Nathan Lyon (2/4)

The Pat Cummins-led side easily chased down the target of 26 runs in their second innings as they won the first test match by 10 wickets. The West Indies would be looking to bounce back with a win in the second test in order to avoid getting whitewashed by the Australians. However, it’s going to be really difficult for the visitors, as the Kangaroos are a really tough team to beat in their home conditions.

Pitch Report

The Gabba is the pinnacle of a dependable cricket ground in Australia, known for its constancy and genuineness. Traditionally, this legendary ground delivers significant bounce and carry, suiting fast bowlers’ skills while also providing stroke-makers with a consistent and equal bounce. Assume that the match lasts for the full five days. In such circumstances, the playing surface will most certainly wear and tear, allowing tall fast bowlers to exploit irregular bounces with devastating effect, particularly in the good-length sector.
