One more sided test

ByAndrew Wu

This test is already shaping up as another smash-up.

The Australian batters continued their dominance of the West Indies unmanned assault, which proved to be no match for Marnus Labuschagne and Travis Head.

The pair piled on the pain, increasing their age in the final session on another sad day for the Windies.

Labuschagne now has three tons from as many innings, while Head washed away the pain from his 99 in the first Test by a ton in front of an adoring home crowd.

At 3-330, Australia is poised for a total of just over 500 tomorrow.

Their goal is likely to be to bat into the final session of day two so they can pick up a new pink ball under the lights, which is the most dangerous time to bat in a day-night Test.

The West Indies are running out of ideas

ByAndrew Wu

If you want to know how West Indies ran out of ideas, consider this.

Kraigg Brathwaite turned to his and Roston Chase's half-time off-spin - if you can call it that - in the eighth and ninth overs from the second new pink ball under the lights.

It also highlighted how weak the West Indies pace attack was, and their poor planning for not picking frontline spinners on tour.

Stumps day 1: Australia 3-330

Marnus Labuschagne (120 off 233 balls) and Travis Head (113 off 143) had put Australia up 3-329 at the stumps on day one of the second Test.

The two century maker was unstoppable in the final session, especially Head who was way behind Labuschagne entering the final session but plundering the Indies grueling to make it to his century in his homeland.

The two hitters patted each other on the back and headed for a break. They have more work to do tomorrow.

Head away one is better

ByAndrew Wu

After approaching a ton with 99 in the first Test, Travis Head got the better of the home crowd.

The South Australian has played with the same passion and flair that he displayed during his draw at the Ashes last summer.

Arriving at the crease with Australia faltering slightly after two quick wickets, Head quickly turned the game around with his dashing batting game.

There were question marks over Head's place on the Test side 12 months ago, but he has emphatically dismissed them.

The next challenge is to improve his game abroad, where his average is 23.

Australia is 3-315.

Head made a century in his homeland

Travis Head has lifted his century, his first in his hometown of Adelaide Oval.

Heads move to 95 with a brilliant cover drive for four and then get one.

Next he hit a straight drive for four to open his century

She has confessed everything and looks very, very happy with herself.

Australia is 3-311. This article was written by EDUKASI CAMPUS.
