Live Cricket Scorecard: Australia vs West Indies 2015-16, 3rd Test at Sydney, Day 2

Australia will take on West Indies on Day Two of the third Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) with a view to press home the advantage they procured on Day One. West Indies had a fairly good first session, scoring 92 runs on the board for the loss of just one wicket. But they soon went back to their old ways and lost wickets in a heap with some uncommitted and unnecessary shots. Marlon Samuels’ run out was the most dubious of the dismissals. There was plenty of turn at the SCG on Day One itself and Nathan Lyon took two wickets. Live Cricket Scorecard: Australia vs West Indies 2015-16, 3rd Test at Sydney

West Indies light of hope was Kraigg Brathwaite who was dismissed 15 short of his hundred. Apart from him, Darren Bravo got a start but fell to a vicious short ball from James Pattinson in the second session for 33. Carlos Brathwaite went to stumps at a 35-ball 35 and will hope to make a big partnership with Denesh Ramdin who is at the other end.

Apart from Lyon, Steven O’Keefe, Josh Hazlewood and Pattinson took one wicket each. Australia will be very happy at keeping West Indies down to 207 for six after the latter started the day out well by their standards. For Australia the key will be to dismiss the West Indian tail cheaply. West Indies will try and push for a score upwards of 300 if they are to have any chance of winning the Test. It is a possibility if Carlos and Ramdin stick around for long enough.
