West Indies

77/10(40.5 Overs)

It is time for the West Indian batters to have a go with the blade now. It will be Kraigg Brathwaite and Tagenarine Chanderpaul to open for the visitors. The Australian players stride out to the middle as well. 

... SECOND INNINGS ...

Right then. Australia have decided to declare now and have a bite of the cherry before the Tea break. Nothing much happened with the blade for Aussies in the second session on Day 2, as they kept losing intervals at regular intervals. Alex Carey was the only one who managed to stay out at the crease and take the score above 500. West Indies though came in with the right intent after the post-Dinner session. They did really well to put a lid on the run rate and frustrate the Australian batters

Drinks break! West Indies have been quite solid with the ball in the post-Dinner session. They have picked up two wickets so far and would be hoping to get a couple more before the end of the session.

We are back for the second session on Day 2. So then, Travis Head is the set-batsman out on the crease at the moment and is just 28 runs short of his double century.

... Day 2, Session 2 ...

The West Indies bowlers are trying hard to find their lengths right but just cannot find them. Devon Thomas did manage to get one wicket at the very end of this session but they are way behind in this game as of now. They have hardly seemed to have troubled Australian batters and they will need to work hard to make their way back into the game. Australia will continue to bat and the West Indies bowlers will have to try out something new if they need to bag some early wickets in the second se

SESSION SUMMARY - 28 overs, 106 runs, and 1 wicket. The first session of Day 2 of this pink ball is done and dusted and it is still the hosts who are in the driver's seat. Another great day for the Aussies as they pile up 106 runs for the loss of just one wicket.

We are all set for the game to resume. West Indies players make their way out in the middle. Marnus Labuschagne and Travis Head will continue to bat for Australia. Jason Holder comes to bowl. Here we go.

West Indies were down and drained, as they needed to use 7 bowlers to complete the first day. Alzarri Joseph, Jason Holder, and Devon Thomas were the successful bowlers, with all picking a wicket each. They will need to start off well and bag some early wickets in the first session of Day 2. Can they do it? We will find out shortly.

David Warner and Usman Khawaja started off well but Warner fell into the trap of Alzarri Joseph and Labuschage came in. Khwahja departed for 62. Holder soon after got the skipper for a duck and then came in the local boy, Travis Head. Head and Labuschagne brewed a partnership of 199 runs and the scoreboard stands 330/3 as of now.

Hello and a warm welcome to the Day 2 of the West Indies tour of Australia. The hosts will be the ones who have had better sleep and the visitors will be busy making the strategies. Day 1 saw 89 overs, and 330 runs for the loss of just 3 wickets.

Right then, that is all we have from this opening day of the second Test match which has been pretty one-sided. West Indies have loads of work to do on Day 2 if they are to claw themselves back into this game. Will we witness a fightback from the visitors? Or will Australia consolidate their position even further? We shall find out when the play resumes on Friday, 9th of December at 9.30 am IST (4 am GMT). Do join us for the build-up which begins well in advance. Cheers!

West Indies got off to a decent start early in the day when Alzarri Joseph dismissed David Warner cheaply on what seems like a great batting surface. The visitors suffered another injury blow as Marquino Mindley hobbled off injured on his debut. A 95-run partnership between Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne steadied the ship for Australia but the former was dismissed by Devon Thomas after he got to his half-century. Jason Holder dismissed the Australian skipper Steven Smith on a du

Australia came out for the last session with Marnus Labuschagne and Travis Head looking to build on their partnership and they began watchfully initially. Marnus Labuschagne continued to score at a steady pace and got to his third century in a row remaining unbeaten on 120. Travis Head played the role of an aggressor and accumulated runs at a quicker pace scoring 114 in 139 balls. Eventually, they went into stumps having put on a 199-run partnership in 280 balls and as mentioned by Marn

SESSION SUMMARY - 34 overs, 141 runs, and 0 wickets. Another session which was dominated by the Australian batters and West Indies lacked any sort of creativity to be able to get a breakthrough. Two centurions in their ranks and they are still unbeaten as they put together a chanceless partnership to make this a day that belongs to the hosts. West Indies have their work cut out in this Test match and with the way their shoulders had dropped in this session, it is clear in which direction

Right then, we will return for the final session of Day 1 shortly and there is still loads of work to be done by both teams.

Marnus Labuschagne is in for a quick chat.

Devon Thomas bowled well and claimed a wicket to break a dangerous partnership that was brewing and Jason Holder got one in his kitty. What would disappoint them though is the fact that they were unable to maintain the pressure thereafter and bowled too many loose balls due to their eagerness to claim wickets. There will need to be patient and discipli

... SECOND INNINGS ...

Right then. Australia have decided to declare now and have a bite of the cherry before the Tea break. Nothing much happened with the blade for Aussies in the second session on Day 2, as they kept losing intervals at regular intervals. Alex Carey was the only one who managed to stay out at the crease and take the score above 500. West Indies though came in with the right intent after the post-Dinner session.

... Day 2, Session 2 ...

We are all set for the game to resume. West Indies players make their way out in the middle. Marnus Labuschagne and Travis Head will continue to bat for Australia. Jason Holder comes to bowl. Here we go.

West Indies were down and drained, as they needed to use 7 bowlers to complete the first day. Alzarri Joseph, Jason Holder, and Devon Thomas were the successful bowlers, with all picking a wicket each. They will need to start off well and bag some early wickets in the first session of Day 2. Can they do it? We will find out shortly.

David Warner and Usman Khawaja started off well but Warner fell into the trap of Alzarri Joseph and Labuschage came in. Khwahja departed for 62. Holder soon after got the skipper for a duck and then came in the local boy, Travis Head. Head and Labuschagne brewed a partnership of 199 runs and the scoreboard stands 330/3 as of now.

Hello and a warm welcome to the Day 2 of the West Indies tour of Australia. The hosts will be the ones who have had better sleep and the visitors will be busy making the strategies. Day 1 saw 89 overs, and 330 runs for the loss of just 3 wickets.

Right then, that is all we have from this opening day of the second Test match which has been pretty one-sided. West Indies have loads of work to do on Day 2 if they are to claw themselves back into this game. Will we witness a fightback from the visitors? Or will Australia consolidate their position even further? We shall find out when the play resumes on Friday, 9th of December at 9.30 am IST (4 am GMT). Do join us for the build-up which begins well in advance. Cheers!

West Indies got off to a decent start early in the day when Alzarri Joseph dismissed David Warner cheaply on what seems like a great batting surface. The visitors suffered another injury blow as Marquino Mindley hobbled off injured on his debut. A 95-run partnership between Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne steadied the ship for Australia but the former was dismissed by Devon Thomas after he got to his half-century. Jason Holder dismissed the Australian skipper Steven Smith on a du

Australia came out for the last session with Marnus Labuschagne and Travis Head looking to build on their partnership and they began watchfully initially. Marnus Labuschagne continued to score at a steady pace and got to his third century in a row remaining unbeaten on 120. Travis Head played the role of an aggressor and accumulated runs at a quicker pace scoring 114 in 139 balls. Eventually, they went into stumps having put on a 199-run partnership in 280 balls and as mentioned by Marn

SESSION SUMMARY - 34 overs, 141 runs, and 0 wickets. Another session which was dominated by the Australian batters and West Indies lacked any sort of creativity to be able to get a breakthrough. Two centurions in their ranks and they are still unbeaten as they put together a chanceless partnership to make this a day that belongs to the hosts. West Indies have their work cut out in this Test match and with the way their shoulders had dropped in this session, it is clear in which direction

... SECOND INNINGS ...

Right then. Australia have decided to declare now and have a bite of the cherry before the Tea break. Nothing much happened with the blade for Aussies in the second session on Day 2, as they kept losing intervals at regular intervals. Alex Carey was the only one who managed to stay out at the crease and take the score above 500. West Indies though came in with the right intent after the post-Dinner session. They did really well to put a lid on the run rate and frustrate the Australian batters

... Day 2, Session 2 ...

The West Indies bowlers are trying hard to find their lengths right but just cannot find them.

They have hardly seemed to have troubled Australian batters and they will need to work hard to make their way back into the game. Australia will continue to bat and the West Indies bowlers will have to try out something new if they need to bag some early wickets in the second se

We are all set for the game to resume. West Indies players make their way out in the middle. Marnus Labuschagne and Travis Head will continue to bat for Australia. Jason Holder comes to bowl. Here we go.

West Indies were down and drained, as they needed to use 7 bowlers to complete the first day. Alzarri Joseph, Jason Holder, and Devon Thomas were the successful bowlers, with all picking a wicket each. They will need to start off well and bag some early wickets in the first session of Day 2. Can they do it? We will find out shortly.

David Warner and Usman Khawaja started off well but Warner fell into the trap of Alzarri Joseph and Labuschage came in. Khwahja departed for 62. Holder soon after got the skipper for a duck and then came in the local boy, Travis Head. Head and Labuschagne brewed a partnership of 199 runs and the scoreboard stands 330/3 as of now.

Hello and a warm welcome to the Day 2 of the West Indies tour of Australia. The hosts will be the ones who have had better sleep and the visitors will be busy making the strategies. Day 1 saw 89 overs, and 330 runs for the loss of just 3 wickets.

Right then, that is all we have from this opening day of the second Test match which has been pretty one-sided. West Indies have loads of work to do on Day 2 if they are to claw themselves back into this game. Will we witness a fightback from the visitors? Or will Australia consolidate their position even further? We shall find out when the play resumes on Friday, 9th of December at 9.30 am IST (4 am GMT). Do join us for the build-up which begins well in advance. Cheers!

West Indies got off to a decent start early in the day when Alzarri Joseph dismissed David Warner cheaply on what seems like a great batting surface. The visitors suffered another injury blow as Marquino Mindley hobbled off injured on his debut. A 95-run partnership between Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne steadied the ship for Australia but the former was dismissed by Devon Thomas after he got to his half-century. Jason Holder dismissed the Australian skipper Steven Smith on a du

Australia came out for the last session with Marnus Labuschagne and Travis Head looking to build on their partnership and they began watchfully initially. Marnus Labuschagne continued to score at a steady pace and got to his third century in a row remaining unbeaten on 120. Travis Head played the role of an aggressor and accumulated runs at a quicker pace scoring 114 in 139 balls. Eventually, they went into stumps having put on a 199-run partnership in 280 balls and as mentioned by Marn

SESSION SUMMARY - 34 overs, 141 runs, and 0 wickets. Another session which was dominated by the Australian batters and West Indies lacked any sort of creativity to be able to get a breakthrough. Two centurions in their ranks and they are still unbeaten as they put together a chanceless partnership to make this a day that belongs to the hosts. West Indies have their work cut out in this Test match and with the way their shoulders had dropped in this session, it is clear in which direction

... SECOND INNINGS ...

Right then. Australia have decided to declare now and have a bite of the cherry before the Tea break. Nothing much happened with the blade for Aussies in the second session on Day 2, as they kept losing intervals at regular intervals. Alex Carey was the only one who managed to stay out at the crease and take the score above 500. West Indies though came in with the right intent after the post-Dinner session.

... Day 2, Session 2 ...

We are all set for the game to resume. West Indies players make their way out in the middle. Marnus Labuschagne and Travis Head will continue to bat for Australia. Jason Holder comes to bowl. Here we go.

West Indies were down and drained, as they needed to use 7 bowlers to complete the first day. Alzarri Joseph, Jason Holder, and Devon Thomas were the successful bowlers, with all picking a wicket each. They will need to start off well and bag some early wickets in the first session of Day 2. Can they do it? We will find out shortly.

David Warner and Usman Khawaja started off well but Warner fell into the trap of Alzarri Joseph and Labuschage came in. Khwahja departed for 62. Holder soon after got the skipper for a duck and then came in the local boy, Travis Head. Head and Labuschagne brewed a partnership of 199 runs and the scoreboard stands 330/3 as of now.

Hello and a warm welcome to the Day 2 of the West Indies tour of Australia. The hosts will be the ones who have had better sleep and the visitors will be busy making the strategies. Day 1 saw 89 overs, and 330 runs for the loss of just 3 wickets.

Right then, that is all we have from this opening day of the second Test match which has been pretty one-sided. West Indies have loads of work to do on Day 2 if they are to claw themselves back into this game. Will we witness a fightback from the visitors? Or will Australia consolidate their position even further? We shall find out when the play resumes on Friday, 9th of December at 9.30 am IST (4 am GMT). Do join us for the build-up which begins well in advance. Cheers!

West Indies got off to a decent start early in the day when Alzarri Joseph dismissed David Warner cheaply on what seems like a great batting surface. The visitors suffered another injury blow as Marquino Mindley hobbled off injured on his debut. A 95-run partnership between Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne steadied the ship for Australia but the former was dismissed by Devon Thomas after he got to his half-century. Jason Holder dismissed the Australian skipper Steven Smith on a du

Australia came out for the last session with Marnus Labuschagne and Travis Head looking to build on their partnership and they began watchfully initially. Marnus Labuschagne continued to score at a steady pace and got to his third century in a row remaining unbeaten on 120. Travis Head played the role of an aggressor and accumulated runs at a quicker pace scoring 114 in 139 balls. Eventually, they went into stumps having put on a 199-run partnership in 280 balls and as mentioned by Marn

SESSION SUMMARY - 34 overs, 141 runs, and 0 wickets. Another session which was dominated by the Australian batters and West Indies lacked any sort of creativity to be able to get a breakthrough. Two centurions in their ranks and they are still unbeaten as they put together a chanceless partnership to make this a day that belongs to the hosts. West Indies have their work cut out in this Test match and with the way their shoulders had dropped in this session, it is clear in which direction
