Jason Holder: “I think it’s a good wicket and hopefully we can get some wickets early in the morning. I think it’s just a matter for us to be disciplined. We’ve just got to be aggressive as we were in the first game and be smart as well. We’ve got one change Evin Lewis comes back in and Darren Bravo misses out. It’s a tough choice. Evin is our main opener and we slot Nicholas in the middle.”
Aaron Finch: “I probably would have a bat first anyway. It looks quite dry. Hopefully, later on, it starts to spin a bit. No changes, same team.”

Kemar Roach is waiting in the wings should West Indies want to alter the balance of their pace-bowling attack after its undemanding outing against Pakistan. Gayle and Russell were both at training on the eve of the game. “Chris was at practice for the last couple of days, so Chris for me is all well and ready to go. Andre will be obviously assessed today, and we’re very, very hopeful that he’ll be fit tomorrow.” Holder said, adding that the team will go by what the two men have to say about their fitness.
Trent Bridge, known for high-scoring, did not disappoint in Pakistan’s unexpected victory over England. It will be the 481 pitch, by the way, but the pitch and square can be expected to be dry, with the hunt for reverse swing – by legal means, of course – likely to be some sort of a factor. Australia have flagged an unchanged line-up, resisting the possibility of recalling Nathan Lyon as a second spinner in place of Nathan Coulter-Nile.
