AUS vs WI Preview

  • Since 1997, West Indies has failed to win a game and dropped 13 of their last 15 contests there.
  • Australia’s batting was dominant in the most recent game because of double-hundred scores from Marnus Labuschagne and Steven Smith.
  • Australia has a stellar record at the Adelaide Oval and only suffered one loss in the last ten matches.


At Adelaide Oval, Australia and West Indies will square off. The second game in the series, this day-night Test, begins on Thursday, December 8 at 14:30 local time. 

Australia put on an outstanding show in Perth during their first home Test match since the end of the Ashes earlier this year. After suffering a minor strain in Perth, Captain Pat Cummins was questionable for the game, but it is anticipated that he will be able to guide the team.

Despite suffering a severe loss last week in Perth, the visitors did display some grit, and they will be hoping to carry that over to this game. All-rounder Kyle Mayers, batsman Nkrumah Bonner, and bowler Kemar Roach all have injury concerns, but Roach is anticipated to participate. 

AUS vs WI Weather Report

The opening two days of the game will be a little cloudy in Adelaide.

AUS vs WI Match Toss Prediction

The team batting first has prevailed seven times in Adelaide’s last 10 Test Matches. Keeping the record in mind, we anticipate the side winning the toss to choose to bat.

AUS vs WI Pitch Report

The first two days would be favorable for batting, and the third day and beyond will see a slowing of the pitch. Batsmen will need to concentrate on forming alliances in this field.

Usman Khawaja will try to establish a strong partnership by opening the batting with David Warner after his disappointing performance in the last game. With Travis Head in the middle with Steven Smith and Marnus Labuschagne playing well, this middle order is robust. Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood will try to get early wickets in this match after doing well with the ball on a calm track in Perth.

West Indies News & Probable Playing XIs

With Tagenarine Chanderpaul as his opening wicket partner, Kraigg Brathwaite will want to establish a strong opening wicket partnership. Nkrumah Bonner, Jermaine Blackwood, and Kyle Mayers would need to improve upon their performance from the previous game in the middle order for the team. In the previous game, their bowlers were unable to trouble the Australians. Jayden Seales and Kemar Roach should start out with tight stints for the team.
