Australia started the Day 2 on 438 for 3 and go into lunch on 583 for 4. Adam Voges and Shaun Marsh make batting look superbly easy on a pitch which does have a bit of help for the fast bowlers. West Indies would have wanted a better sort of performance from their bowlers after the abysmal time on Day 1. Voges have continued to have his merry ways notching up his first ever double hundred in Test cricket. Coincidentally, Voges got his first ever Test hundred against the West Indies last time they toured Windies. Marsh on other hand has looked to emulate his partner Voges crossing past fifties and hundreds at run all ball margin. Shaun Marsh sadly missed out on double ton, will kick himself in the dressing room for playing such a rash shot. LIVE CRICKET SCORECARD: Australia vs West Indies 2015-16, 1st Test at Hobart, Day 2
