Australia appear set to clinch victory in the game, which the second of the three-Test series, by the third day, and gain an unassailable 2-0 series lead at the same time. West Indies were reeling at 91 for six at the end of the second day’s play, with Darren Bravo remaining unbeaten 0n 13 as the last ray of hope for the visitors to be able to accomplish on Day Three, however faint the hope may be. Australia will to get Bravo’s wicket early on Monday, which should positively end all West Indian hopes for bringing the match back to life, and should demoralise them even further.
