If the West Indians look back at the earlier games, they will see two things --- the Australians, although it wasn't the case against India, were awful at chasing against the Pakistan spinners. The bowling of the West Indies is a weakness but they have to accept that and pick an attack that won't suit their opposition.
The West Indies must play their two spinners — Narine and Badree. They also need to involve Gayle and Samuels with the expectation that they will bowl their four overs. Australia have three left-handers in Warner, Hussey and Wade. It could well be the spin bowling that could decide this match. Secondly, looking backwards, the West Indies will note that their batting has looked threadbare and brittle. There is too much of reliance on Gayle. The writer is a former India coach
