Australia v West Indies 2nd Test preview

The final test of the Australian summer is set to take place at The Gabba for this week as Australia looks to sweep the West Indies in the day-night second test.

Coming off a dominant 10-wicket win in Adelaide, the home side comes to Brisbane with all of the momentum, on the back of another match-winning knock from Travis Head. Australia’s vice captain compiled 119 off 134 balls before Josh Hazlewood ripped through the Windies top order when taking 5/35 in the second innings to set up a small target of 26 required in the final innings.

Despite the comfortable win, the Aussies will be hoping for more productivity from their batsman in Brisbane, having made just 283 in Adelaide against a very inexperienced West Indies attack. The Aussies are expected to go in unchanged, despite Usman Khawaja being forced to retire hurt in the second innings, after taking a bouncer to the jaw in the run chase.

The West Indies were extremely disappointing in Adelaide, and if it wasn’t for debutant Shamar Joseph, it could have been a lot worse. They were rolled for 188 in the first dig, with Joseph scoring 36 off 41 balls, while Kirk McKenzie was the only West Indies batter in the match to cross 50, when making just that. Joseph backed up his antics with the bat when he had the ball in hand, taking 5/94, including taking the wicket of Steve Smith with his first ball.

With Kraigg Braithwaite and Tagenarine Chanderpaul arguably the best bats in the team, they will be hoping for a bigger output from their opening pair in Brisbane.

Australia v West Indies betting tips

Australia are the best team in the world, and the West Indies are clearly not the force they once were. However, one thing that is going to stop the Aussies this week is the Brisbane weather. Up to 80mm of rain is forecast for Saturday and Sunday in Brisbane, and unless the Aussies can roll the West Indies inside of two days, a result is going to be hard to come by for Pat Cummins and his side. Australia has only tasted defeat once at The Gabba since the turn of the century, with only four draws in that same timeframe. However, with rain forecast on all but the opening day, we’re taking the +525 on offer with top cricket betting sites.

Hometown boy Marnus Labuschagne hasn’t scored the runs he would have liked to so far this summer, but we’re confident he can bounce back to form in familiar surroundings. Marnus averages a tick over 80 in test cricket at his home ground, with two centuries and two half centuries to his name. He is a man for any scenario, and if the Aussies lose an early wicket, look for Labuschagne to consolidate the innings with another century and sink the West Indies further.

Outside of Shamar Joseph, it was just Kirk McKenzie who made more than 30 in the West Indies’ first innings in Adelaide. With some glorious shots through the offside, McKenzie will no doubt benefit from the bounce in Brisbane and will have gained great experience from his knock in Adelaide. At first drop, if Braithwaite or Chanderpaul fall early, we’re confident Kirk McKenzie can replicate what he did in Adelaide and capitalise on a fast outfield in Brisbane. At +375 with top online bookmakers, he looks a great bet to be the top runscorer in the West Indies 1st innings.
