West Indies’ Tour of Australia 2015
The Boxing Day Test is like an excitement of its own. Played traditionally in Australia, this time it’s West Indies who have the series on stake for them. They lost the first Test badly and are now looking for a sweet revenge. Can they end their tour on a high?
Game: Australia vs. West Indies, 2nd Test
Date: 26th to 30th December 2015
Series Info: Australia lead by 1-0
AUSTRALIA- With Steven Smith injured, Australia need not press the panic button. Their bowlers are doing well and batsman even better. We saw that in the first game where the Aussies lost only 4 wickets on contrary to 20 wickets lost by West Indies.
WEST INDIES- Low on Confidence but high on spirits, they have gone back to the basics and shown a considerable improvement. They have got a good practice before the second Test. More importantly, their batsman seemed to have found their lost touch which will boost their confidence.
Do you still believe West Indies stands a chance? Well, cricket upsets are rare in Test Matches and just a look at last game’s results will help you decide where to place your bets. With a humiliating innings defeat at Hobart, it will require the visitors to play out of their skins, not to square the series, but to avoid such a fate again. Admit it, its Australia’s game.
