The West Indies crickters have arrived in Perth flushed with confidence following their moral victory in the second test in Adelaide, leaving the Australians with plenty of thinking to do.

The visitors outplayed Australia for long stretches of the second Test, as the side hung together far better than they had in Brisbane to help expose the limitations of what remains a transitional Australian side.

The former Australian captain Ian Chappell says a marked shift in confidence levels is evident on both sides

And the West Indies coach David Williams says they made an experienced Australian bowlng attack look good by playing so badly in Brisbane
