Aussies look to finish off Windies

Australia will look to finally finish off the West Indies after the tourists showed a surprising amount of pluck at Bellerive Oval on Sunday.

The Windies delayed the home side retaining the Frank Worrell Trophy with a determined display at the crease on day four in Hobart.

Youngsters Dwayne Bravo (113) and Denesh Ramdin (71) showed the future of the West Indian team was not as gloomy as predicted.

Their 182-run stand for the seventh wicket took almost four hours and stalled Australia's push for victory.

The hosts start their second innings on the fifth day needing just 78 runs to secure an unbeatable 2-0 series lead in the three-match series.

But plenty of interest will be centred around the post-match announcement of the side for the Adelaide Test starting Friday.

Michael Clarke is under pressure to retain his spot following Mike Hussey's century in Hobart and the expected return of regular opener Justin Langer from a cracked rib.

The weather bureau is predicting fine weather in Hobart.
