Game 26: Australia 80-2 (Smith 43, Green 17) Roach’s other inside arcer was guarded by Smith. Australia will feel safe when he is at the crease, but things could get interesting if he goes.
Roach tried another inswing to Green but the ball drifted to the pads and Green hit it cleanly through square leg for the first boundary of the day.
Game 25: Australia 75-2 (Smith 42, Green 13) Justin Greaves, who troubled Cam Green last night, replaces Alzarri Joseph, and another Joseph Shamal just came on.
Greaves’ first over wasn’t the best, including a very wide half-track that Smith hit a couple of times for. He’s done a great job getting to that point.
Game 24: Australia 71-2 (Smith 39, Green 12) Smith worked around a big infielder from Roach and was hit to the pads. Roach was desperate for LBW, especially since it was Smith, but it was too much. The ball started doing some things for the West Indies bowlers.
In other news, there is also a wicket in Hyderabad where England are also dreaming of a shock win.
Game 23: Australia 68-2 (Smith 37, Green 11) Smith is off to a solid start, rotating the offense almost at will. Green is taking penalties, but that’s understandable given his poor form.
Joseph went wider at the crease and beat him with Jaffa – fuller, late swing. The next ball shape goes away and hits hard into the back of the thigh. Too high for LBW, but another great pitch.
Game 22: Australia 66-2 (Smith 36, Green 10) Despite poor overhead conditions, the West Indies bowlers are yet to swing. Roach delivered an accurate but harmless maiden pitch to Green.
Game 21: Australia 66-2 (Smith 36, Green 10) Last night’s bowler, Alzarri Joseph, was open at the other end. Smith bowled the first ball to the cover sweeper for three singles from as many balls.
Green was beaten, chasing a sideline and then hitting a single to bring the score to double digits. The day started off slow.
Game 20: Australia 63-2 (Smith 35, Green 9) Shamar Joseph was not present when the game started. Kemar Roach drives to Steve Smith for three; Smith slaps the first ball down the leg side and is out.
Green defended well enough to get a bye on the penultimate pitch, and Smith treated the last pitch like it was the first.

Hello and welcome to live coverage of the fourth and almost certainly final day at the Gabba. The situation is simple. Australia needed 156 more runs to win the series 2-0; West Indies needed eight wickets to tie 1-1; both teams needed rain to stay away.
It had rained a lot earlier in the day but now it has cleared up and the race will start on time.By then, Steve Smith will be hoping to use Same permissions as last night: He resumed action on 33 not out, while Cameron Green’s performance on 9 was less convincing.
West Indies are encouraged by the news that Shamal Joseph’s toe was not broken by Mitchell Starc, so he should be able to bowl today. On a pitch that is still performing well, they need an early wicket plurality.
