AUSTRALIA VS WEST INDIES, 1ST TEST, DAY 3- Problems aplenty for West Indies

0

Hobart: This storyline was expected, but by this margin certainly not. Steven Smith’s Australia came down heavily on the inexperienced West Indies side to crush them by an innings and 212 runs. The defeat, one of their biggest highest in Tests, made the game look like a one-horse race as the match ended in a predictable manner. Neither did West Indies manage to match up with Australia’s mammoth first innings total of 584-4 declared, nor did they come up with an improved performance in their second innings. All they did were, fall apart like a bunch of cards, even without a contest. They didn’t even make Australia bat again and eventually bundles out for just 148 runs in their second innings. With the ICC World Cup for Tests coming up, this is a bad sign for West Indies team who already have a bad track record in ICC World Tournaments.
