    Now the WI r gonna give Aussies some tough time with BCL, Sarwan and Gayle back in the side.Hoping for a tough contest between these 2 equally balanced sides.

    Equally balanced?

    Well, the key for the West Indies to be competitive is to find a couple of bowlers who can stand up and be counted. Guys like Edwards, Collins and Best are all capable of doing serious damage against Australia, but they rarely get it right long enough, and with the likelyhood of flat pitches Australia may well rack up massive scores against the Windies bowling attack. With Lara and Chanderpaul in the team, the West Indies can definately be competitive with the bat, but it's hard to see them doing much with the ball. A whitewash wouldn't particularly surprise me.

    I think the Windies might surprise a few people, esp. given that Benett King will probably have good knowledge of the grounds, the pitches etc. Hopefully, the Windies can put out their best side and do their best. Then, I think, they MAY be competitive.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Either 2-1 or 2-0 to the Aussies

    I just hope for my sake that I get to see Lara in really good action at the 'Gabba. I was robbed by Glen McGrath the last time the Windies played at the 'Gabba when he got Lara out in both innings for 0 & 4.

    I'd love to see Lara get some runs here in Australia, unfortunately they won't be playing at the MCG (I think) so I won't get to see him.

    The WI bowling wont trouble Australia. England won the Ashes through relentless accurate bowling..WI simply dont have that capability. Watch for sudden returns to form for pretty much every Aussie batsman.
    Whitewash

    Yep. If they want to stop the Australian batsmen scoring boundaries they're going to need a bit more than a deep point

    Personally I can't see Windies making any progress until they sort out the situation with the "rebels". It is notable how much more they played as a team and players raised their games when the rebels were absent. Of course the gap in quality was still too much to overcome but there seemed to be a fair bit of talent if only it could be nurtured properly.

    Maybe they the WI might fire with the bat but I expect the WI to cop a pasting.

    In saying that I may head up there for the tour or Test match at the 'Gabba.

    Can't see the Windies bowlers having the firepower to take 20 wickets, so expect that they'll be whitewashed.

    Be interesting to see what, if any, changes Australia make.

    As poor as the West Indies have been recently (notwithstanding the return of Lara, Sarwan and Gayle), I can see the Australians being completely knackered after two months of the toughest cricket they'll ever play in England, followed by nine days of cricket against the best the world has to offer.

    WI might win a Test, but otherwise its Aussies all the way. I can't see anything other than a series win for them, despite recent setbacks. The interesting thing will be to see what team they put out.
