The second and final Test of the series between Australia (AUS) and the West Indies (WI) will take place from the 25th to the 29th of January. It will mark the end of the Australian summer which has witnessed four Test matches so far. The match is set to be played at The Gabba in Brisbane, which is known to be a fortress in Australian cricket. In the last 35 years, Australia have lost just one Test match at the venue. India won the game against Australia at the venue in 2021.

Australia won the first Test in just a little over 2 days at the Adelaide Oval. The home side dominated the West Indies in a good battle between the bat and the ball. The same is expected from the 2nd Test. Australia is likely to dominate the visiting side, given the strength of either side. Australia are better in every aspect of the game as compared to the West Indies, who do not have enough experience. Neither in batting nor in bowling do West Indies stand a chance against Australia.

The lineup of both sides tells a story. At one end, the home side has some great batters like Steve Smith, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschange, and Travis Head. Compared to it, the West Indian batting lineup has only Kriagg Brathwaite as an experienced batter. the likes of Tagenarine Chanderpaul, Kirk McKenzie, and Alick Athanaze are inexperienced. In bowling, the quartet of Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, and Nathan Lyon is as good as it could get.

AUS vs WI: Pitch Report

The match is set to happen at the Gabba, which is known to be a fortress for Australia in Test cricket. It will be a pink-ball Test match between the two sides. The match will be a D/N Test where the afternoon session will be good for bowling given the new ball. In the evening session, the batting gets tricky due to the twilight period. In the last session of the day, batting becomes a bit easier given the dew factor and the old ball. It will be interesting to see how the wicket plays.

Australia have never lost a pink ball Test match. The home side have played the most number of pink-ball Test matches and have never lost it. The WTC final champions have played their D/N Test matches at Adelaide and The Gabba. They are yet to lose a pink-ball Test match. The boundaries are bigger and the wicket is likely to be green, providing good assistance for the pacers. There would be early swing, pace, bounce, and good carry, which is perfect for the Pacers to bowl.
