It was a low-scoring thriller that went down to the wire in Queensland. The action for the second T20I between Australia and West Indies would happen at the Gabba. The game will happen on October 7th. Here, we look at the pitch report of the Gabba and the weather conditions in Brisbane for AUS vs WI 2022.
West Indies had an underwhelming show with the bat. While Kyle Mayers scored runs, the management might prefer them at a quicker rate. The likes of Johnson Charles and Nicholas Pooran must step up in the batting department while Sheldon Cottrell should look to improve his economy in the next game.
For Australia, they opted for a fresh opening combination and played Aaron Finch at No.4. The skipper scored a fifty and was influential in the team’s victory. On the other hand, David Warner and Glenn Maxwell would like a few runs before the 2022 T20 World Cup.

The Gabba is a popular venue and till now, a total of five T20I encounters have happened at this venue. Of course, the stadium has seen plenty of T20 matches, especially in the Big Bash League.
Interestingly, more games have been won by the side batting first at the Gabba. The average score batting first is 166 while for each wicket, an average of 26 runs are scored at this venue. For the best batting performance in this venue, we must go back to 2006 when Damien Martyn scored a 96 against South Africa. James Faulkner‘s 3/28 against West Indies in 2013 is the best bowling display on this pitch.
