West Indies

333/10(110.5 Overs)

We are back!

An update on the pitch from Brendon Julian before the West Indian reply. He says that West Indies will opt for the heavy roller which will be used for seven minutes. He adds that it will be nice and hard but there will be something for the Aussie quicks. It will depend on making the Windies batters play at more deliveries.

... SECOND INNINGS ...

West Indies will be mightily relieved that they don't have to toil further in the field but they will be aware of the incoming threat as well. None of the bowlers proved to be effective for them and they were simply inconsistent with their lines and lengths. Skipper Kraigg Brathwaite who is a part-time off-spinner probably troubled the Aussie batters the most and even got a couple of in-form batters out. The Windies openers will have a big role to play when they come out to bat. Will we see th

Right then, heartbreak right in the end for Travis Head and Pat Cummins has finally decided to declare with the score being 598/4. It has been just a cakewalk for the hosts on Day 2 as more than 300 runs were scored in a little over two sessions and they lost just a couple of wickets as well. It was Marnus Labuschagne who brought up his second double-ton in Test cricket in the first session and then after he got out, the pair of Steven Smith and Travis Head added on 196 runs and the former

However, the umpire turns it down. It looks close to the naked eye and Kraigg Brathwaite goes for the DRS. The replays roll and the UltraEdge shows no bat there.

… DAY 2, SESSION 2 …

West Indies have toiled hard on the field and this is not what they wanted this morning after a challenging Day 1 but they mostly have themselves to blame for this. The Windies just weren't attacking enough when the second new ball was still doing enough and some of the field placements were questionable. A couple of bowlers did bowl well in patches but have found it hard to create wicket-taking opportunities. The skipper Kraigg Brathwaite did get a big breakthrough late in the session which mi

Marnus Labuschagne and Steven Smith went on to score a double-century and century respectively as they made the opposition work hard in the field with not just their strokeplay but also with their running. The pair was looking unstoppable and looked all set to bat for another whole session together but in the final over before the interval, the 251-run stand was broken as Labus

Australia have laid down the marker for the rest of the game with their batters bossing Day 1. After David Warner fell early, Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne put on a big stand that put the hosts on top of the proceedings. Usman Khawaja fell but Marnus Labuschagne went on to build another century stand with Steven Smith and brought an individual ton as well. Aussies will look for more of the same on Day 2. Stay tuned as the morning session isn't far away.

West Indies started with a lot of promise in the field as youngster Jayden Seales got rid of David Warner early in the day but after that, they found it tough going for a long time. Kyle Mayers' underrated skills as a bowler came to the rescue of the visitors as he broke a crucial stand but yet again the Windies couldn't capitalise. They would be hoping that the pitch quickens up and they can get early wickets on Day 2 to get back in the contest.

Hello and a warm welcome to Day 2 of the first Test match between Australia and West Indies from the Optus Stadium in Perth. Day 1 saw the hosts put on a stellar show with the bat Marnus Labuschagne notching up a brilliant ton. Will we see another run fest on Day 2 as well?

… DAY 2, SESSION 1 …

Right then, that is all we have from his absorbing opening day of the first Test match. West Indies need to do some heavy lifting on Day 2 now to make their way back into this game. Will the Windies fightback? Or will Australia consolidate their position? We shall get all our answers when the play resumes on Thursday, 1st of December at 7.50 am IST (2.20 am GMT). Our build-up though as you know, begins a lot earlier. Do join us for the same. Cheers!

West Indies, well, they tried hard but the Australian batters were too good on the day. Kraigg Brathwaite tried all his options but nothing worked and though there were few plays and misses in between, it was a frustrating day from the Windies' point of view. The second new ball now is eight overs old and West Indies need to make the most of it early on Day 2 if they want to make their way back into this game.

Marnus Labuschagne is down for a chat. He says that whenever you finish a day with almost 300 runs and just 2 wickets lost it is a great day and they will now look to get a big total on board. Adds that it helps coming from Brisbane to play on bouncy wickets like this one and if you're patient and the technique is sound, you can score runs here. Mentions that whenever you aren't scoring runs there's a bit of doubt but it is all about trusting the process. Ends by saying that his wife and daug

Steven Smith started the final session with a bang stroking a boundary off the first delivery and he just continued the same momentum throughout the session on his way to a fluent 59*. Marnus Labuschagne at the other end was also more proactive in this session and notched up a gritty century and ended with an unbeaten knock of 154 as runs started flowing quickly for the Aussies. They are in a pole position now and we can expect Australian batters to come up with more aggressive intent on Day 2

Australia have dominated this session and are in the driver’s seat now at the end of Day 1. A wicketless session with 131 runs added and West Indies after starting this morning on a positive note have not been able to get enough breakthroughs throughout the day to put more pressure on the Aussies.

The day started with Jayden Seales getting rid of David Warner early. However, Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne then showed some great grit and determination to ride through a tough period when West Indies were really bowling well in the first session. Runs started flowing bit quickly in the afternoon session for the Aussies as Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne both got to their fifties. Mayers then brought some life back into the Windies camp with a wicket late in the second sessi

… DAY 1, SESSION 3 …

West Indies will be a bit disappointed with the fact that they could only pick up the solo wicket in this session. This is mainly due to the lack of energy they brought onto the field right after the Lunch break and conceded runs at an alarming rate. The spin of Roston Chase proved ineffective until the second half of the session but he couldn't trouble the batters much. An inspired change then to bring back Kyle Mayers into the attack worked like a charm as he dismissed Usman Khawaja. But th

Marnus Labuschagne and Usman Khawaja carried on the good work and improved upon the foundation laid in the opening session. The two batters were able to pick up boundaries at regular intervals and rotate strike in the first hour of the second session. Both got to their fifties and looked good but there came a time when Marnus Labuschagne was troubled a bit and the Khawaja was sent packing. The 142-run stand between those two has put Australia in command here and they will look to score more r

We are all ready to start! It is bright and sunny and conditions look perfect for some quality Test cricket. West Indies players are in the huddle and after some last-minute tips by their skipper, they disperse on the field. David Warner and Usman Khawaja are the openers for Australia. Kemar Roach has a brand new cherry in his hand. The players though will take the knee first in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. We are done now. Here we go...

West Indies (Playing XI) - Kraigg Brathwaite (C), Tagenarine Chanderpaul, Nkrumah Bonner, Jermaine Blackwood, Kyle Mayers, Jason Holder, Joshua Da Silva (WK), Roston Chase, Alzarri Joseph, Kemar Roach, Jayden Seales.

We are back!

An update on the pitch from Brendon Julian before the West Indian reply. He says that West Indies will opt for the heavy roller which will be used for seven minutes. He adds that it will be nice and hard but there will be something for the Aussie quicks. It will depend on making the Windies batters play at more deliveries.

... SECOND INNINGS ...

West Indies will be mightily relieved that they don't have to toil further in the field but they will be aware of the incoming threat as well. None of the bowlers proved to be effective for them and they were simply inconsistent with their lines and lengths. Skipper Kraigg Brathwaite who is a part-time off-spinner probably troubled the Aussie batters the most and even got a couple of in-form batters out. The Windies openers will have a big role to play when they come out to bat. Will we see th

Right then, heartbreak right in the end for Travis Head and Pat Cummins has finally decided to declare with the score being 598/4. It has been just a cakewalk for the hosts on Day 2 as more than 300 runs were scored in a little over two sessions and they lost just a couple of wickets as well. It was Marnus Labuschagne who brought up his second double-ton in Test cricket in the first session and then after he got out, the pair of Steven Smith and Travis Head added on 196 runs and the former

… DAY 2, SESSION 2 …

West Indies have toiled hard on the field and this is not what they wanted this morning after a challenging Day 1 but they mostly have themselves to blame for this. The Windies just weren't attacking enough when the second new ball was still doing enough and some of the field placements were questionable. A couple of bowlers did bowl well in patches but have found it hard to create wicket-taking opportunities. The skipper Kraigg Brathwaite did get a big breakthrough late in the session which mi

The Aussies started the day in a position of promise and they have only gone and cemented their dominance further. Marnus Labuschagne and Steven Smith went on to score a double-century and century respectively as they made the opposition work hard in the field with not just their strokeplay but also with their running. The pair was looking unstoppable and looked all set to bat for another whole session together but in the final over before the interval, the 251-run stand was broken as Labus

Australia have laid down the marker for the rest of the game with their batters bossing Day 1. After David Warner fell early, Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne put on a big stand that put the hosts on top of the proceedings. Usman Khawaja fell but Marnus Labuschagne went on to build another century stand with Steven Smith and brought an individual ton as well. Aussies will look for more of the same on Day 2. Stay tuned as the morning session isn't far away.

West Indies started with a lot of promise in the field as youngster Jayden Seales got rid of David Warner early in the day but after that, they found it tough going for a long time. Kyle Mayers' underrated skills as a bowler came to the rescue of the visitors as he broke a crucial stand but yet again the Windies couldn't capitalise. They would be hoping that the pitch quickens up and they can get early wickets on Day 2 to get back in the contest.

Hello and a warm welcome to Day 2 of the first Test match between Australia and West Indies from the Optus Stadium in Perth. Day 1 saw the hosts put on a stellar show with the bat Marnus Labuschagne notching up a brilliant ton. Will we see another run fest on Day 2 as well?

… DAY 2, SESSION 1 …

Right then, that is all we have from his absorbing opening day of the first Test match. West Indies need to do some heavy lifting on Day 2 now to make their way back into this game. Will the Windies fightback? Or will Australia consolidate their position? We shall get all our answers when the play resumes on Thursday, 1st of December at 7.50 am IST (2.20 am GMT). Our build-up though as you know, begins a lot earlier. Do join us for the same. Cheers!

West Indies, well, they tried hard but the Australian batters were too good on the day. Kraigg Brathwaite tried all his options but nothing worked and though there were few plays and misses in between, it was a frustrating day from the Windies' point of view. The second new ball now is eight overs old and West Indies need to make the most of it early on Day 2 if they want to make their way back into this game.

Marnus Labuschagne is down for a chat. He says that whenever you finish a day with almost 300 runs and just 2 wickets lost it is a great day and they will now look to get a big total on board. Adds that it helps coming from Brisbane to play on bouncy wickets like this one and if you're patient and the technique is sound, you can score runs here. Mentions that whenever you aren't scoring runs there's a bit of doubt but it is all about trusting the process. Ends by saying that his wife and daug

Steven Smith started the final session with a bang stroking a boundary off the first delivery and he just continued the same momentum throughout the session on his way to a fluent 59*. Marnus Labuschagne at the other end was also more proactive in this session and notched up a gritty century and ended with an unbeaten knock of 154 as runs started flowing quickly for the Aussies. They are in a pole position now and we can expect Australian batters to come up with more aggressive intent on Day 2

Australia have dominated this session and are in the driver’s seat now at the end of Day 1. A wicketless session with 131 runs added and West Indies after starting this morning on a positive note have not been able to get enough breakthroughs throughout the day to put more pressure on the Aussies.

The day started with Jayden Seales getting rid of David Warner early. However, Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne then showed some great grit and determination to ride through a tough period when West Indies were really bowling well in the first session. Runs started flowing bit quickly in the afternoon session for the Aussies as Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne both got to their fifties. Mayers then brought some life back into the Windies camp with a wicket late in the second sessi

… DAY 1, SESSION 3 …

West Indies will be a bit disappointed with the fact that they could only pick up the solo wicket in this session.

An inspired change then to bring back Kyle Mayers into the attack worked like a charm as he dismissed Usman Khawaja. But th

Marnus Labuschagne and Usman Khawaja carried on the good work and improved upon the foundation laid in the opening session. The two batters were able to pick up boundaries at regular intervals and rotate strike in the first hour of the second session. Both got to their fifties and looked good but there came a time when Marnus Labuschagne was troubled a bit and the Khawaja was sent packing. The 142-run stand between those two has put Australia in command here and they will look to score more r

We are all ready to start! It is bright and sunny and conditions look perfect for some quality Test cricket. West Indies players are in the huddle and after some last-minute tips by their skipper, they disperse on the field. David Warner and Usman Khawaja are the openers for Australia. Kemar Roach has a brand new cherry in his hand. The players though will take the knee first in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. We are done now. Here we go...

West Indies (Playing XI) - Kraigg Brathwaite (C), Tagenarine Chanderpaul, Nkrumah Bonner, Jermaine Blackwood, Kyle Mayers, Jason Holder, Joshua Da Silva (WK), Roston Chase, Alzarri Joseph, Kemar Roach, Jayden Seales.

We are back!

An update on the pitch from Brendon Julian before the West Indian reply. He says that West Indies will opt for the heavy roller which will be used for seven minutes. He adds that it will be nice and hard but there will be something for the Aussie quicks. It will depend on making the Windies batters play at more deliveries.

... SECOND INNINGS ...

West Indies will be mightily relieved that they don't have to toil further in the field but they will be aware of the incoming threat as well. None of the bowlers proved to be effective for them and they were simply inconsistent with their lines and lengths. Skipper Kraigg Brathwaite who is a part-time off-spinner probably troubled the Aussie batters the most and even got a couple of in-form batters out. The Windies openers will have a big role to play when they come out to bat. Will we see th

Right then, heartbreak right in the end for Travis Head and Pat Cummins has finally decided to declare with the score being 598/4. It has been just a cakewalk for the hosts on Day 2 as more than 300 runs were scored in a little over two sessions and they lost just a couple of wickets as well. It was Marnus Labuschagne who brought up his second double-ton in Test cricket in the first session and then after he got out, the pair of Steven Smith and Travis Head added on 196 runs and the former

… DAY 2, SESSION 2 …

West Indies have toiled hard on the field and this is not what they wanted this morning after a challenging Day 1 but they mostly have themselves to blame for this. The Windies just weren't attacking enough when the second new ball was still doing enough and some of the field placements were questionable. A couple of bowlers did bowl well in patches but have found it hard to create wicket-taking opportunities. The skipper Kraigg Brathwaite did get a big breakthrough late in the session which mi

The Aussies started the day in a position of promise and they have only gone and cemented their dominance further. Marnus Labuschagne and Steven Smith went on to score a double-century and century respectively as they made the opposition work hard in the field with not just their strokeplay but also with their running. The pair was looking unstoppable and looked all set to bat for another whole session together but in the final over before the interval, the 251-run stand was broken as Labus

Australia have laid down the marker for the rest of the game with their batters bossing Day 1. After David Warner fell early, Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne put on a big stand that put the hosts on top of the proceedings. Usman Khawaja fell but Marnus Labuschagne went on to build another century stand with Steven Smith and brought an individual ton as well. Aussies will look for more of the same on Day 2. Stay tuned as the morning session isn't far away.

West Indies started with a lot of promise in the field as youngster Jayden Seales got rid of David Warner early in the day but after that, they found it tough going for a long time. Kyle Mayers' underrated skills as a bowler came to the rescue of the visitors as he broke a crucial stand but yet again the Windies couldn't capitalise. They would be hoping that the pitch quickens up and they can get early wickets on Day 2 to get back in the contest.

Hello and a warm welcome to Day 2 of the first Test match between Australia and West Indies from the Optus Stadium in Perth. Day 1 saw the hosts put on a stellar show with the bat Marnus Labuschagne notching up a brilliant ton. Will we see another run fest on Day 2 as well?

… DAY 2, SESSION 1 …

Right then, that is all we have from his absorbing opening day of the first Test match. West Indies need to do some heavy lifting on Day 2 now to make their way back into this game. Will the Windies fightback? Or will Australia consolidate their position? We shall get all our answers when the play resumes on Thursday, 1st of December at 7.50 am IST (2.20 am GMT). Our build-up though as you know, begins a lot earlier. Do join us for the same. Cheers!

West Indies, well, they tried hard but the Australian batters were too good on the day. Kraigg Brathwaite tried all his options but nothing worked and though there were few plays and misses in between, it was a frustrating day from the Windies' point of view. The second new ball now is eight overs old and West Indies need to make the most of it early on Day 2 if they want to make their way back into this game.

Marnus Labuschagne is down for a chat. He says that whenever you finish a day with almost 300 runs and just 2 wickets lost it is a great day and they will now look to get a big total on board. Adds that it helps coming from Brisbane to play on bouncy wickets like this one and if you're patient and the technique is sound, you can score runs here. Mentions that whenever you aren't scoring runs there's a bit of doubt but it is all about trusting the process. Ends by saying that his wife and daug

Steven Smith started the final session with a bang stroking a boundary off the first delivery and he just continued the same momentum throughout the session on his way to a fluent 59*. Marnus Labuschagne at the other end was also more proactive in this session and notched up a gritty century and ended with an unbeaten knock of 154 as runs started flowing quickly for the Aussies. They are in a pole position now and we can expect Australian batters to come up with more aggressive intent on Day 2

Australia have dominated this session and are in the driver’s seat now at the end of Day 1. A wicketless session with 131 runs added and West Indies after starting this morning on a positive note have not been able to get enough breakthroughs throughout the day to put more pressure on the Aussies.

The day started with Jayden Seales getting rid of David Warner early. However, Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne then showed some great grit and determination to ride through a tough period when West Indies were really bowling well in the first session. Runs started flowing bit quickly in the afternoon session for the Aussies as Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne both got to their fifties. Mayers then brought some life back into the Windies camp with a wicket late in the second sessi

… DAY 1, SESSION 3 …

West Indies will be a bit disappointed with the fact that they could only pick up the solo wicket in this session.

An inspired change then to bring back Kyle Mayers into the attack worked like a charm as he dismissed Usman Khawaja. But th

Marnus Labuschagne and Usman Khawaja carried on the good work and improved upon the foundation laid in the opening session. The two batters were able to pick up boundaries at regular intervals and rotate strike in the first hour of the second session. Both got to their fifties and looked good but there came a time when Marnus Labuschagne was troubled a bit and the Khawaja was sent packing. The 142-run stand between those two has put Australia in command here and they will look to score more r

We are all ready to start! It is bright and sunny and conditions look perfect for some quality Test cricket. West Indies players are in the huddle and after some last-minute tips by their skipper, they disperse on the field. David Warner and Usman Khawaja are the openers for Australia. Kemar Roach has a brand new cherry in his hand. The players though will take the knee first in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. We are done now. Here we go...

West Indies (Playing XI) - Kraigg Brathwaite (C), Tagenarine Chanderpaul, Nkrumah Bonner, Jermaine Blackwood, Kyle Mayers, Jason Holder, Joshua Da Silva (WK), Roston Chase, Alzarri Joseph, Kemar Roach, Jayden Seales.

An update on the pitch from Brendon Julian before the West Indian reply. He says that West Indies will opt for the heavy roller which will be used for seven minutes. He adds that it will be nice and hard but there will be something for the Aussie quicks. It will depend on making the Windies batters play at more deliveries.

... SECOND INNINGS ...

West Indies will be mightily relieved that they don't have to toil further in the field but they will be aware of the incoming threat as well. None of the bowlers proved to be effective for them and they were simply inconsistent with their lines and lengths. Skipper Kraigg Brathwaite who is a part-time off-spinner probably troubled the Aussie batters the most and even got a couple of in-form batters out. The Windies openers will have a big role to play when they come out to bat. Will we see th

Right then, heartbreak right in the end for Travis Head and Pat Cummins has finally decided to declare with the score being 598/4. It has been just a cakewalk for the hosts on Day 2 as more than 300 runs were scored in a little over two sessions and they lost just a couple of wickets as well. It was Marnus Labuschagne who brought up his second double-ton in Test cricket in the first session and then after he got out, the pair of Steven Smith and Travis Head added on 196 runs and the former

… DAY 2, SESSION 2 …

West Indies have toiled hard on the field and this is not what they wanted this morning after a challenging Day 1 but they mostly have themselves to blame for this. The Windies just weren't attacking enough when the second new ball was still doing enough and some of the field placements were questionable. A couple of bowlers did bowl well in patches but have found it hard to create wicket-taking opportunities. The skipper Kraigg Brathwaite did get a big breakthrough late in the session which mi

The Aussies started the day in a position of promise and they have only gone and cemented their dominance further. Marnus Labuschagne and Steven Smith went on to score a double-century and century respectively as they made the opposition work hard in the field with not just their strokeplay but also with their running. The pair was looking unstoppable and looked all set to bat for another whole session together but in the final over before the interval, the 251-run stand was broken as Labus

Australia have laid down the marker for the rest of the game with their batters bossing Day 1. After David Warner fell early, Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne put on a big stand that put the hosts on top of the proceedings. Usman Khawaja fell but Marnus Labuschagne went on to build another century stand with Steven Smith and brought an individual ton as well. Aussies will look for more of the same on Day 2. Stay tuned as the morning session isn't far away.

West Indies started with a lot of promise in the field as youngster Jayden Seales got rid of David Warner early in the day but after that, they found it tough going for a long time. Kyle Mayers' underrated skills as a bowler came to the rescue of the visitors as he broke a crucial stand but yet again the Windies couldn't capitalise. They would be hoping that the pitch quickens up and they can get early wickets on Day 2 to get back in the contest.

Hello and a warm welcome to Day 2 of the first Test match between Australia and West Indies from the Optus Stadium in Perth. Day 1 saw the hosts put on a stellar show with the bat Marnus Labuschagne notching up a brilliant ton. Will we see another run fest on Day 2 as well?

… DAY 2, SESSION 1 …

Right then, that is all we have from his absorbing opening day of the first Test match. West Indies need to do some heavy lifting on Day 2 now to make their way back into this game. Will the Windies fightback? Or will Australia consolidate their position? We shall get all our answers when the play resumes on Thursday, 1st of December at 7.50 am IST (2.20 am GMT). Our build-up though as you know, begins a lot earlier. Do join us for the same. Cheers!

West Indies, well, they tried hard but the Australian batters were too good on the day. Kraigg Brathwaite tried all his options but nothing worked and though there were few plays and misses in between, it was a frustrating day from the Windies' point of view. The second new ball now is eight overs old and West Indies need to make the most of it early on Day 2 if they want to make their way back into this game.

Marnus Labuschagne is down for a chat. He says that whenever you finish a day with almost 300 runs and just 2 wickets lost it is a great day and they will now look to get a big total on board. Adds that it helps coming from Brisbane to play on bouncy wickets like this one and if you're patient and the technique is sound, you can score runs here. Mentions that whenever you aren't scoring runs there's a bit of doubt but it is all about trusting the process. Ends by saying that his wife and daug

Steven Smith started the final session with a bang stroking a boundary off the first delivery and he just continued the same momentum throughout the session on his way to a fluent 59*. Marnus Labuschagne at the other end was also more proactive in this session and notched up a gritty century and ended with an unbeaten knock of 154 as runs started flowing quickly for the Aussies. They are in a pole position now and we can expect Australian batters to come up with more aggressive intent on Day 2

Australia have dominated this session and are in the driver’s seat now at the end of Day 1. A wicketless session with 131 runs added and West Indies after starting this morning on a positive note have not been able to get enough breakthroughs throughout the day to put more pressure on the Aussies.

The day started with Jayden Seales getting rid of David Warner early. However, Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne then showed some great grit and determination to ride through a tough period when West Indies were really bowling well in the first session. Runs started flowing bit quickly in the afternoon session for the Aussies as Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne both got to their fifties. Mayers then brought some life back into the Windies camp with a wicket late in the second sessi

Drinks break. Australia are moving along nicely here. Both the batters are looking very comfortable in the middle and Windies after starting so well in this Test match are looking flat in this session. They need a moment of inspiration from somewhere here otherwise Australia can take this game away from them very quickly. The new ball will be due after 7 overs and that would probably be the last chance for Windies to make an impact. However, if they can get rid of one of these two before the ne

… DAY 1, SESSION 3 …

West Indies will be a bit disappointed with the fact that they could only pick up the solo wicket in this session. This is mainly due to the lack of energy they brought onto the field right after the Lunch break and conceded runs at an alarming rate. The spin of Roston Chase proved ineffective until the second half of the session but he couldn't trouble the batters much. An inspired change then to bring back Kyle Mayers into the attack worked like a charm as he dismissed Usman Khawaja. But th

Marnus Labuschagne and Usman Khawaja carried on the good work and improved upon the foundation laid in the opening session. The two batters were able to pick up boundaries at regular intervals and rotate strike in the first hour of the second session. Both got to their fifties and looked good but there came a time when Marnus Labuschagne was troubled a bit and the Khawaja was sent packing. The 142-run stand between those two has put Australia in command here and they will look to score more r
