    2.1 gone! Watson misjudges this one, he's left a ball that is cutting back in, it crashes into Watson's pad just outside the line. But since there was no shot offered, Asad Rauf sends him on his way and Watson doesn't as for a review. Well bowled Taylor, he'd been bowling outswingers in the first over and the change worked. 0/1

    79.3 gone! What a super catch from the captain Chris Gayle! Bravo continued to tempt Clarke outside off and finally the batsman had a slash, a thick outside edge flew high and to the left of Gayle at a wide first slip, and he's snaffled it brilliantly. 287/5
    124.5 pushes forward and gets a thick edge to the left of Ramdin who holds a ripper of a chance - ends a good innings from North on debut on Australian soil 444/8
    104.5 good catch! Rampaul makes the breakthrough and that's his first Test wicket. A straight ball on off stump and Haddin prods, gets a thickish edge that is well taken by Ramdin low to his right 371/6
    111.2 now is this out? Johnson pushed at a straight ball and there was a noise as it passed the bat. Ramdin took the catch and Ian Gould has given it out. Johnson asks for the review, it appears he has hit his pad with the bat, but did he also hit the ball? The angle of Hot Spot doesn't show anything conclusive - the edge of the bat is facing the wrong way - and there's no evidence to overturn Gould's decision, so Johnson remains out 386/7

    12.3 plays back and is hit on the pad - looks pretty close and he is given by Umpire Gould. But there's a twist as Gayle challenges - the result he's out, dead as can be as it pitches about middle and leg and looks plainly out. Great umpiring there by Gould - backed himself and was justified by the TV referral 49/1
    13.5 drives an edges low to 3rd slip and Watson makes his first contribution in the match with a good low snare 49/2
    62.6 and that's the end of that. Dowlin goes for a big heave over midwicket but he hasn't got hold of it well enough to clear the rope, Watson is in the deep and makes a good catch 228/10
    16.5 plays back and is hit on the pad and after an appeal, Gould says out LBW - TV referral called for and it shows that the umpire was right and the West Indies have lost 3/17 - just the 2 for Chanderpaul, 50th Test wicket for Siddle and the West Indies have run out of challenges 58/3
    17.3 edges low to 3rd slip where Watson snares it and the umpires decide to chat about it and decide to go upstairs to Mark Benson once again - it looks ok to me and it is given out and quite rightly. Looked like he caught it from the footage available. Disaster for the West Indies 63/4
    29.2 short, bouncer length and he tries to cut and gets a top edge to Haddin who leaps into the air to hold the chance. Disappointing end for Nash who looked good in his first dig on Aussie soil 96/5
    46.6 Johnson makes the breakthrough! Edged to first slip and North swallows a straightforward chance. Johnson had been swinging a few in and this one angled across just on an off-stump line so Ramdin had to play. Lovely bowling 174/6
    57.5 and Benn's entertaining innings comes to an end, he's tried to turn it through leg and got a healthy leading edge that lobs up wide of mid-off, where Siddle runs around to make the catch 212/7
    60.5 gone! Hauritz strikes in his first over, Taylor lunges and gets a little bat onto pad, and Katich comes forward to clasp a catch while on the move. I'm not sure if Gould was going to give that, but Taylor walked in any case 221/8
    60.6 Hauritz is on a hat-trick! Draws the outside edge and Clarke at first slip lunges to his left and grabs the catch with one hand, beautiful take from Clarke 221/9

    2.1 leaves an inswinger and he looks plumb - given out and the WI skipper challenges, now what does the replay say? Umpires call is the call from upstairs and he is still out - terrible start and great bowling 6/1

    41.6 tries to work to leg, hit on the pad and is given out LBW, looked a shade leg side to me - Barath rightly challenges, the TV replay shows that that it is just clipping leg. That is wrong for me - technology letting the game down there. A lot of time that would have been not out - the end of a top knock, great effort - 104 out of 6/154 for the West Indies. 154/6
    6.1 gets one to comes back at him from back of a length and sadly he plays it on to his leg stump. Looked a bit late on the shot, disaster for the Windies 18/2
    10.2 short and tries to pull, rather lamely in the end and Katich takes a good catch running back with the flight near the square leg 39/3
    27.2 dear me - a short one is hooked straight to deep backward square leg - where the catch is taken, unbelievable - given he told Barath a minute ago to play calmly before Tea 105/4
    38.6 plays from the crease to an arm ball, misses it and he's gone. That was plumb, a great bit of bowling from Hauritz 141/5
    46.5 aims to cut, he gets a touch and Haddin holds on to a catch just, in the webbing between his right thumb and first finger 170/8
    43.1 short and pulls to deep square leg, Hilfenhaus takes it with ease. A sense of 1975/76 here with the old 'Happy hookers' tag. That could be it for Taylor this series - given he has a hip problem 158/7

    51.6 his brief resistance comes to an end as he tries some sort of pull shot, gets a leading edge and Hussey wanders around and holds the catch in the gully area - as they say, the end is nigh 187/9
    52.1 leg side ball which he glances, Haddin dives and takes a ripper of a catch diving to his left. Haddin has kept well this game and that's it - Australia home and hosed by an innings and 65 runs, leading 1-nil. 187/10
