West Indies captain Chris Gayle concedes he is struggling to cope with the bowling of Australia seamer Doug Bollinger.
Bollinger has dismissed Gayle cheaply in each of the first two one-day internationals, helping Australia open a 2-0 lead in the series.
The New South Wales left-arm paceman claimed figures of 4-28 in Adelaide on Tuesday to earn the man-of-the-match award in Australia's eight-wicket success.
"He's definitely got my measure, there's no doubt about it," said Gayle.
"But I'm looking forward to the contest in Sydney (third one-day international), these things are good for the game and hopefully this time we can get a start and not expose our middle order too early again.
"When you look at the bowling attack all the guys are in form, you must give them credit for that.
"They keep making changes and the guys that replace them still come in and do a good job."
Gayle also admitted West Indies' poor displays in the opening two games have contributed to the disappointing attendances.
West Indies lost the series opener in Melbourne by 113 runs on Sunday and went down heavily again in Adelaide after being skittled for just 170.
The second match attracted just 8,378 to the Adelaide Oval and the number at the opening fixture at the MCG was also well below-par.
The rise of the Twenty20 format has raised question marks about the future viability of the 50-over game but Gayle believes the downward trend would be arrested if his team started to produce competitive performances.
"We just have to keep (the series) open again and get it to 2-1 up and then make the series more interesting so you guys can actually have something to cheer about, and the fans and cricket needs it," Gayle said.
"Hopefully we can actually get things happening for us and then take it from there, make it more interesting so you can get some more ticket sales."
West Indies are scheduled to play five one-day internationals and two T20s in Australia and Gayle is happy with that balance.
"I'm happy with five ODIs to be honest with you, it's not a problem," he added.
"Two Twenty20s is not a lot so that's OK with me at this point in time.
Bollinger, meanwhile, also remains a supporter of the 50-over format and believes the crowds will return in coming seasons.
"It's a working day so not everyone can be coming today," he noted. "I'm just glad we've got people coming out.
"I think one-day cricket is a great game, 50-over cricket is a great game and it's going to be around for a long time.
"I think everyone knows we are playing well and winning helps doesn't it? But you've got to look next year with the Ashes, every game will be sold out, and no-one will have a problem then.
"We are just enjoying the 50-over format at the moment and having a great time."
