Australia, fresh off their convincing victory in the Adelaide Test, head to the Gabba for the second Test against the West Indies, brimming with confidence and aiming to seal the series win. Skipper Pat Cummins, riding the wave of three consecutive five-wicket hauls, leads an unchanged bowling attack that proved lethal against the Windies in the first encounter.
