    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
    not out
    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
