Brisbane: The West Indies struggled on the rain-hit opening day of their Australian tour against a modestly talented Cricket Australia XI in Brisbane yesterday.

Only 60 overs' play was possible on the first day of the four-day game at Allan Border Field ahead of next week's first Test in Hobart.

The Windies were restricted to 154 for six with Darren Bravo not out 46 at stumps. The inexperienced tourists gave no grounds for optimism about the upcoming three-Test series, even though the CA XI featured six players new to first-class cricket.

The lowly-ranked Windies rested pace spearhead Jerome Taylor but their batting line-up was expected to be the same as for the Bellerive Oval Test starting on December 10.
