Aus hustled to a win in the previous game courtesy of a 50 from Finch. Although they were given a scare by the Windies bowlers, Australia’s depth and balance came through in the end. They will be keen to wrap up a series win against the Windies, who also have a well-balanced side to fall back on. Although Pooran and Co. are yet to find their groove, the Windies are a force to be reckoned with in the shorter formats. All in all, another entertaining game beckons at the Gabba on Friday.
