The final Test of the Australia vs West Indies series will start tomorrow (January 25) at The Gabba in Brisbane. Home team Australia secured an unassailable 1-0 lead in the two-match series by winning the first match at the Adelaide Oval last week by 10 wickets.

Pat Cummins and co. will be keen to strengthen their grip over the number one position in the points table by winning the pink-ball match in Brisbane. On the other hand, West Indies will aim to level the series with a historic win at The Gabba.

Before the final Test of the Australian home season starts, here’s a look at the pitch history and Test records of Brisbane.

The Aussies reached 35/4 in the second innings to win the match. Only two batters crossed the 50-run mark in that Test match.
