Hopes of Australia of pushing for series-settling victory were spoiled by a torrential storm at the Queen's Park Oval in the Trinidad. The day was almost lost, which leaves Australia 127 runs ahead with 7 wickets in hand in second innings.
With more rains forecast for Thursday also, a draw was emerging as the most possible result that would be sufficient for Australia to keep the Frank Worrell Trophy subsequent to the visitors won first test in last week in the Barbados.
Although Ed Cowan, Australia opening batsman said that, his team were not lose hope of winning as well as may even be set to roll the dice also risk defeat to provide themselves a possibility of victory. Cowan said that, he don't think there is any doubt about that.
We will open up the game at some position, almost certainly willing to lose it for the possibility to win it. It will rely on whether they are eager to risk the match, he guesses.
If the weather stays well, best chances of Australia of forcing an outcome would be to attempt and add more 100 runs before lunch after then set up an early declaration so that West Indies would be excited to chase.
Cowan said that, he is not the captain. He haven't spoken to (captain) Michael Clarke or (coach) Mickey Arthur but on that wicket they have seen scoring rates at a bit over 2 for the game as a result 230 or 240 runs are even off in 65 or 70 over which would be tough.
That is long enough for them to bowl them out if they are willing to have a set off. They will see. He doesn’t rather know how the brains' belief is playing it. That is what he would be thinking.
