Spin the key in Trinidad
The West Indies and Australia could both play two spinners in the second Test which begins in Trinidad on Sunday.
The Aussies, who won a thrilling first Test in Barbados, are considering playing left-armer Michael Beer as well as Nathan Lyon, with the Queen's Park Oval pitch exceptionally spin-friendly in the last few years.
The Windies have called up off-spinner Shane Shillingford, who last played Test cricket in November 2010 before his bowling action was deemed illegal.
He has remodelled his action and could play in place of Devendra Bishoo, who returned match-figures of 1-169 in the first Test, with Narsingh Deonarine able to provide support with his off-breaks.
The player that the West Indies would surely have loved to have selected is Sunil Narine.
The Queen's Park Oval is his home ground and the off-break variations that allowed him to take 34 first-class wickets at an average of just 11.88 brought him to the attention of the selectors.
Unfortunately for the hosts, he won a lucrative Indian Premier League contract and, like Marlon Samuels, is unavailable.
The last time the Aussies played at Queen's Park Oval was nine years ago, and Ricky Ponting was man of the match.
He scored 206, his highest Test score at the time, as Australia scored a massive 576-4 and they won the match by 118 runs.
West Indies: Sammy (c), K Edwards, Barath, Baugh, Bishoo, Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Chanderpaul, Deonarine, F Edwards, Powell, Rampaul, Roach, Shillingford.
Australia: Clarke (c), Watson, Beer, Cowan, Forrest, Harris, Hilfenhaus, M Hussey, Lyon, Nevill, Pattinson, Ponting, Siddle, Starc, Wade, Warner.
