    14.1 plays back and gets an inside edge onto his upper leg, the ball goes to Haddin who takes the catch and the West Indies skipper is out 52/2
    8.4 short and he pulls in the air to square leg who is half way to the fence, an easy change to Clarke - disappointing end from a man who batted well in the series. Good bouncer and very bowled by Bollinger 35/1
    17.6 tries to cut and gets an edge to Haddin and that is a bad shot last ball before Lunch, he could have left that a lived to fight on after the break. 68/3
    66.1 gets one that he touches onto his pad and it collects the off stump - the end of a magnificent innings of 82, 203 minutes worth a defiance there. Well played - Bravo set to join Nash 196/4
    80.6 good length delivery pitches outside the off stump and nips back in, misjudgement from Nash as he lets the ball go and the off stump is knocked back, wonderful bowling from Bollinger. 245/7
    67.5 drives at a wide ball outside off and Hussey holds the edge in the gully 197/5
    75.5 gets one to niip back and he plays it on, they can't take that away from him, McKay's first Test wicket and Australia now back right on top in this Test match 231/6
    85.4 once again he looks to go big on the onside, it was short in length and into Benn, cramping him, he somehow hits it high in the air to deep backward square leg and the sub Doropoulus takes the catch, at last. 279/8
    85.6 fuller outside the off stump, drives in the air to mid-off and McKay takes the catch. 279/9
    94.3 high drama! Australia have appealed for a caught behind and Roach has been given, he wants a review, it's so marginal, can't really tell if he nicked it or not, replays aren't conclusive and in such cases I think the on-field decision should stay, Roach fended at the ball off the back foot as it angled across him ... the Australians were extremely confident ... Hot Spot shows nothing much ... the wait is long and tense ... and he's been given ... fair call too since there was no evidence either way 323/10
