Sydney, Nov 24(ANI): West Indies fast bowler Jerome Taylor has said that the current Australian team is beatable.
Though Queensland managed to score 617 against the West Indies in their practice game, the 25-year-old Taylor believes the tourists are ready to take on the Aussies.
"Australia have a lot of firepower, but they are looking like they are beatable. We are conditioned in our minds to go out and put up a good fight and to take it to the Australians," The Herald Sun quoted Taylor, as saying.
"If we're the underdogs, we're not expected to win, but we will be going out there to put up a big show," he added.
He further highlighted that Windies fast bowlers have a pitch like the Gabba, venue for the first Test against Australia, back home and said their attack is capable of taking 20 wickets.
"I can't wait to get on the deck. As a fast bowler, that's my thing, that's my job and I want to get into action. If there is any life in the wicket, it's a plus for us because back home in the Caribbean we are accustomed to very flat and low wickets," Taylor said.
Taylor also lauded West Indies skipper Chris Gayle's batting in the second innings of the practice match against Queensland.
"He is a great player for us and should we have lost him for this Test, it would have been a great loss. For me it's great because we are both from Jamaica and I work with him a lot and he is a boost to the players," Taylor said. (ANI)
