Inside information a boost for Windies

The West Indies will rely on some vital inside information in their bid to topple Australia in the five-match one-day series, starting on Friday at the WACA Ground.

Chris Gayle, Kemar Roach, Kieron Pollard and Sunil Narine all featured in this summer's Twenty20 Big Bash League in Australia, while Dwayne Bravo played two summers ago.

West Indies captain Darren Sammy hoped the inside information his players gained on their Australian rivals would prove vital in their 50-over series.

"It will be a massive help for us," Sammy said on Thursday.

"The experience they've got of playing here over the years will be passed on to the youngsters like (Kieran) Powell.

"Information is never too much coming from the guys who have that experience."

Gayle endured a rather forgettable BBL campaign for the winless Sydney Thunder, scoring just 72 runs at an average of 12 over his first six innings before making 65 in the final game.

But the 33-year-old returned to his blistering best on his return to the West Indies, cracking 85 and an unbeaten 122 for his domestic T20 side Jamaica.

"When he came back home and played in our Caribbean T20, he didn't look like someone who didn't score runs in the Big Bash," Sammy said.

"He almost came out as the top run getter in two games.

"We all know what Chris is capable of doing. The threat he poses to any opposition is good for us.

"We have confidence that, come Friday, Chris will be ready. He's one of our most experienced players."

Sammy said Powell (leg) and Andre Russell (knee) were in some doubt for Friday's match after picking up injuries in Tuesday's loss to the Prime Minister's XI.
