    0.3 cracker of a start for West Indies. Warner has to depart for a duck. Prancing delivery... Leaps from a length outside off, Warner is caught in an awkward tangle as he spars at it, the ball takes the outside edge and balloons to third slip where Hope completes a good, low catch 0/1
    4.6 Marsh has been given out lbw by umpire Richard Kettleborough, Taylor strikes again. Full inswinger at 140.4ks, Marsh falls over and misses the flick as he is rapped on the front pad in front of middle. It looked pretty adjacent, prompting Marsh not to challenge the decision... The tracker shows that it would have hit the top of leg 16/2

    125.6 Smith has been given out lbw by Ian Gould on 199. Smith wants a review. Taylor's footing is fine. Superb inswinging yorker at 140.3ks. Smith is a fraction late as the balls dips under hit bat. Taylor smacks him on the back boot in front of middle. No clear evidence of a tickle/edge on it. Smith loses his balance and nearly topples over... And the tracker shows that it would have cannoned into the leg stump. Third Australian to be dismissed on 199 after Matthew Elliott and Steve Waugh. What an anti-climax. Smith looks skywards as he trudges back to the hut... Nevertheless, this has been a top innings on a tricky pitch 393/9
    38.6 Clarke has nicked off. Holder has his arms aloft and exults... Fuller length and moves away outside off, Clarke is crease-bound as he chases it with an on-the-up drive. He can only feed an outside edge to Ramdin 134/3
    68.3 Taylor breaks the stand and claims his third.. Teasing ball, full and curls away outside off, Voges is sucked into the drive and edges it behind. Easy take for Ramdin. Voges was guilty of being rooted to the crease there. He throws his head back as he walks off 210/4

    92.3 Timber... Taylor strikes again, has Ambrose clapping. Good length, slides in with the angle and straightens, Watson misjudges it as he shoulders arms, offering a free pathway for the ball to nail the top of off. Watson was anticipating the outswinger 264/5
    98.5 Taylor has his man now, shoots through the bat-pad gap and this cannons into middle and leg. Taylor claims a five-wicket haul. He loves bowling on this ground, doesn't he?. Pitched up and nips back in a touch at 139.7ks, Haddin drives loosely and only connects with thin air 296/6
    102.5 Bravo shelled one yesterday, he pouches this safely. Good overhead catch.. Fractionally short and outside off, Johnson wants to slash it away but thickly edges it behind. First wicket for Roach... 306/7

    110.4 knocked em'over. Back of a length and holds its line from round the wicket. Starc closes his face but he misses the flick. Holder rattles top of off and exults 330/8
    126.5 Hazlewood holes out to long-on and Australia have been bowled out for 399. Hazlwood fetches it from outside off, he wants to slug it away. He does not middle it and can only drag it to long-on, where Blackwood snaffles it 399/10

    7.6 Lyon has early success and he becomes the most prolific Australian offspinner in Tests, surpassing Hugh Trumble. Flighted and turns in from outside off, Brathwaite plays inside the line and misses as Lyon strikes off. Perhaps, Brathwaite was anticipating more spin 9/2
    2.4 Chandrika gone for a duck on debut... Pitched up and outside off, he is crease-bound as he chases it with a loose away-from-the-body drive and nicks it through to Haddin. Oh hang on, the umpire's check for a possible no ball. Starc's foot is on the line. I guess there is nothing behind the line. The TV umpire, Dar, though, disagrees 1/1

    11.1 a big appeal for lbw and umpire Richard Kettleborough gives it out. Tossed up and slides in with the angle, Bravo goes on the back foot, plays down the wrong line and misses as he is smacked on the pad in front of middle. That looked plumb and he does not want to review it.. West Indies slip to 25 for 3 25/3
    19.5 Dowrich nicks it behind. Full and curving away outside off, Dowrich can't resist his temptation. He reaches out for a drive but can only outside-edge it to Haddin. Easy catch 44/4
    29.4 Lyon snares the outside edge, Hope departs for 26. Lyon gives this ample air outside off, Hope pokes as he plays inside the line and gets an outside edge. Haddin keeps his legs together and it sticks.... 77/5
    45.5 Blackwood has thrown it away late in the day. Pitched up and outside off, Blackwood drives on the up, Warner bends forward and takes it at mid-off. Hazlewood roars 142/7
    39.2 Hazlewood comes back and removes Ramdin. Umpire Richard Kettleborough raises his forefinger. He doesn't review and walks off. Full and jags back in to smack Ramdin on the front pad in front of middle. Ramdin did not connect with the big drive. It would have crashed into the leg stump 119/6

    46.6 Johnson belts out a caught-behind appeal. Umpire Gould turns it down. Haddin is confident and Clarke wants to review. Johnson's footing is okay. There was a sound as the ball went past the bat. Good length and on a fourth-stump line, Permaul wafts at it and manages a faint edge to Haddin. Disappointing end to a disappointing day for West Indies.. 143/8
    59.3 Hazlewood breaks the partnership and has Roach caught behind. Good length outside off, Roach is sucked into a drive. He can only edge it through to Haddin for a dolly catch. Roach was nailed to the crease as he chased it 220/9
    59.5 Hazlewood claims a five-for and West Indies have been bundled out for 220. Pitched up and swerves back in a touch on off, Taylor just pads up to it. Hazlewood smacks him on the back pad. The forefinger goes up and Taylor bags a duck 220/10

    0.3 Starc strikes in the first over.. Wicket off the third ball after the declaration. Full and a bit wide outside off, Brathwaite drives loosely with little feet movement. He can only drag it back onto the stumps off an inside edge. The middle stump is tilted back. Chandrika bagged a duck in the first innings, Brathwaite out without scoring in the second 0/1
    0.6 Chandrika bags an unwanted pair on debut. Double-strike from Starc, leaves West Indies at 1 for 2. On a fullish length and outside off, Chandrika drives while he is on the move and gets a thickish outside edge. Marsh bends forward at gully and snaps up a sharp, low catch 1/2
    15.5 Hazlewood reaps reward for disciplined bowling. Good length and straightens around off, Bravo pushes at it with rather firm hands and edges it to gully, where Marsh holds onto a nice, low catch. West Indies stumble to 27 for 4 27/4

    12.3 inswinger from Starc, Dowrich is gone. Pitched up and curves back in rather late, Dowrich does not connect with the attempted across-the-line flick. The ball rips through and cannons into off. Replays show that the ball kissed the back pad and then hit the furniture. Poor shot selection from Dowrich, though 20/3

    26.5 Johnson leaps for joy. He is mobbed by his team-mates. After a few short balls, Johnson hits the fuller length. This one cuts in from outside off. Hope inches forward to block but Johnson shoots through the gate and nails off. Hopes did not account for the sharp inward movement and plays the penalty 55/6
    17.4 Fifty in the first innings, duck in the second. Hazlewood gets Blackwood. Pitched further up and nips in on off, teasing line. Blackwood is lured into a meek push, he doesn't move his feet either. All he can do is to chop it back onto the leg stump off a bottom edge. West Indies are sliding quickly 33/5
    40.2 and Johnson strikes. So does Nelson. Good length outside off with a hint of away movement, Ramdin pokes and feeds an outside edge to second slip, where Clarke bends forward to collect it, low to his right. Johnson draws level with Craig McDermott 111/8
    29.3 Soft, soft dismissal. Starc pouches it at short midwicket, definition of a dolly. Fullish and on middle and leg, Holder seeks to flick it away. This one sticks in the pitch and Holder plays a touch early, ends up chipping it limply to Starc 62/7

    41.5 Looped up and spins in. Good dip to boot. Roach presses forward to defend and gets an inner edge onto the pad, which lobs to short leg. Simple catch and umpire Gould nods his head 114/9
    41.6 Lyon cleans up the tail. Taylor bags a pair of his own. Australia sweep the series 2-0. Flighted offbreak from Lyon, Taylor goes for an almighty swipe across the line. He does not connect as Lyon rattles the middle stump 114/10
