Brathwaite Fifties Give Windies Hope


Both Kraigg and Carlos Brathwaite his contrasting fifties for the West Indies giving hope of preventing a whitewash in the series down under against a dominant Australian team. The two were ably assisted by the rain who allowed only 68 balls to be delivered on the 2nd day of the Test, leaving the West Indies 248/7 in their first innings after choosing to bat first in the Sydney Test.

With the pitch turning since day one and likely to deteriorate further there is still the possibility of spectacular collapses by both sides and chance of a result within the next three days. However, the with further rain forecast, the chances are reduced for Australia to have enough time to bat in order to force a victory. 

Currently, Dinesh Ramdin and Kemar Roach are in the wicket. Ramdin and Darren Bravo were the only other batsmen to cross 30, with the other wickets all falling for ten and under.
