Carlos Brathwaite did his chances of making a test debut no harm as he followed up a solid 47 in the first innings with some tight bowling, including one wicket vs Cricket Australia in Brisbane.
The West Indies are facing a young Australian team with seven players making their first class debut and finished their first innings on 243. C.Brathwaithe was the second highest scorer behind Darren Bravo's 51. The pair also shared in the highest partnership of the innings.
