Australia and West Indies will face off on Day Two of the third Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) with the homeside possessing the advantage. West Indies went to stumps with 207 runs on the board for the loss of six wickets. They had three good performances with the bat. Kraigg Brathwaite top-scored with 85, brother Carlos is batting unbeaten at 35 while Darren Bravo played well for his 33 but failed to play down a short ball by James Pattinson. Nathan Lyon got quite a bit of turn from the surface and picked the important wicket of Kraigg. He later also dismissed the aggressive Jermaine Blackwood.

West Indies will be keen to get a big partnership between Carlos and Denesh Ramdin in order to boost their score over the 300-run mark at the very least. Ideally they should try and get about 340-350 runs from here but that seems almost impossible given the quality of the Australian bowling line up.

Apart from Lyon, the other wicket-takers were Pattinson, Josh Hazlewood and Steven O’Keefe all taking one wicket each. Marlon Samuels was run out in a disgraceful fashion. The West Indian bowlers must also be prepared to bend their backs as it is likely the trend of them getting pushed around by the Australians will continue if they give another weak performance. Australia has the definite edge in this contest at the moment but with a little bit of luck and application the Caribbean men can bring the game back in balance.
