Australia check out Viv's new stadium

Australia will train at the brand-new Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground in Antigua ahead of Tuesday's World Cup Super Eights clash with hosts West Indies.

Australia's 15-man squad arrived in Antigua fresh from St Kitts on Sunday following their emphatic 83-run win over No.1-ranked South Africa on Saturday.

The victory gives Australia two carry-over points into the Super Eights round of matches.

Despite Australia's stunning form in topping Group A, captain Ricky Ponting is wary of the home side's ability.

"If their batting comes off then they are very dangerous. If (Brian) Lara comes off on any given day then we are going to be chasing a big score," Ponting said.
