West Indies bowling coach Sir Curtly Ambrose believes his team's attack can target Australia's "not so solid" middle order

The West Indies bowling consultant told media in Australia that his team is "here to win."

"You as reporters have got to report what you see," Ambrose said. "So I've learned over the years to, I won't say ignore, but know what to take from the reports and what not to take. But we're going to be focused. We're not going to worry about what has been said about us not being a good team or not going to compete ... At the end of the day when we perform and beat Australia, then the reporters will have to change their tune.

"We played against Australia not so long ago in the Caribbean and even though we lost 2-0 there were moments or periods when we had them on the back foot and had their backs against the wall. And we never really finished them off. So we believe we can compete and not only compete but we believe we can beat them and that's our focus to beat Australia. Not just to compete but to win and, being the underdogs, sometimes it's good to be that way.

"We have nothing to lose. As far as I'm concerned the Australians are the ones under pressure. They have to beat us because Australians and cricket in general expect them to steamroll us. So they're the ones who are under pressure, not us. And we're going to put up a good show."

The first Test match begins on Wednesday night in Hobart.

Trinidad and Tobago’s senior women’s footballers maintained a positive mindset as they took the training field for the first time in San Antonio for a 4pm session at the Alamodome on Tuesday ahead of Thursday’s International Friendly with the United States.

The T&T team arrived in San Antonio and checked into the Marriott Plaza just before midnight on Monday. 

According to team manager Sharon O’Brien, “The team is in good spirits after a long day of travel. We’re quite pleased to have arrived at our second destination and the focus now shifts to Thursday’s match. We have to keep our concentration levels up because there are quite a few days to go still on tour with the Brazil trip coming up a few days later.”
