Ground:Brisbane Cricket Ground, Woolloongabba, Brisbane
Scorecard:Australia v West Indies
Player:JE Taylor, KAJ Roach
Event:West Indies in Australia 2009/10

DateLine: 27th November 2009


West Indies have been dealt a major blow on the second morning of the first Test, with attack spearhead Jerome Taylor off the field and in doubt for the remainder of the match with a left hip injury. Taylor sustained the problem on the first day at the Gabba, managing just nine overs and failing to take the second new ball in the final session.


Taylor was ruled out of the tour match against Queensland due to general stiffness, and experienced problems early in the first Test. Having removed Shane Watson in the third over of the day, Taylor returned for a second spell and reported soreness in the hip.


Roach, who fronted the media at stumps, expressed confidence Taylor would recover for the second day's play, however his condition deteriorated overnight. His further participation in the match is uncertain.
