Head: Labuschagne help, Australia surge ahead :

Travis Head (172*) and Marnus Labuschagne (163) both posted their respective 150s as Australia continued to pile on runs and misery on the hapless West Indies, on Day 2 of the day-night Adelaide Test. The pair stretched their overnight unbeaten stand to 297 before Devon Thomas could get visitors a much-needed breakthrough in the moments leading up to the dinner break.

Labuschagne and Head continued their good work from last night against a clueless West Indies bowling attack that failed to create any chances. Barring a few short balls that the West Indies’ pacers attempted, the fourth-wicket pair looked hardly troubled as they marched steadily towards their milestones without taking any chances, and capitalising on the loose balls that were plenty.

Head brought up the 200 of the partnership on the second ball of the day and then the 250, before going on to outrun his partner to the 150 mark on the other side of the drinks break. He got there with a four off a short ball from Roston Chase, and also brought up the 400 for Australia in the process. Labuschagne followed suit in the next over.

Thomas then returned for a final spell heading into the break, and struck on the first ball of his second over. Labuschagne perished chasing a slightly wide delivery, sending an edge through to a very alert Joshua de Silva, who made it look like an easier take than it was standing up to the stumps. Thomas could have sent Cameron Green packing first ball as well, but the edge this time fell just short in slips
