AUS vs WI Probable Top Performers
Probable Best Batter

Probable Best Bowler
Lyon dismantled the Windies batting unit in the 2nd innings of the 1st test. He picked up 6 wickets in that innings and was unplayable. With the 2nd Test going to be held in Adelaide, which is more spin-friendly than Perth, expect him to pick up a truckload of wickets.
