    11.4 Powell and Ramdin combo are at it again. It landed on the leg stump line, on a length and Marsh tried to play it through the on side but the ball cut across him and clipped the outer edge 56/2
    7.5 First the bouncer, then the really full one and now the length delivery cutting in from outside off. Watson shapes to drive on the up and it runs off the inner edge to left of Ramdin 41/1
    23.6 the slog doesn't work this time. He cleared the front foot and swung a full delivery straight to deep midwicket. 116/3
    28.5 another big shout for lbw and Asad Rauf lifts his finger after some delay. Another sweep that Clarke didn't connect but he was struck marginally outside the off stump. In the previous over, he survived a shout when he was hit on the off stump line and this time is unlucky to be given out. 129/4
    46.1 steps down the track, clears the front foot in an effort to the get the bat swing going but Edwards fires it short of length and on the off stump. Symonds tries to flat-bat it over the off side but couldn't clear the fielder at mid-off. Super entertaining innings comes to an end. 256/5
    47.4 The low full toss does the trick. David skipped down the track and swung a dipping delivery to the substitute fielder at deepmidwicket 266/7
    46.2 Short delivery, Hopes tries to whip pull it but top edges a dolly to midwicket. 256/6
    49.3 full in length, swung straight to long-off. The average first-innings score on this ground is 284 279/8

    33.4 Australia break through. Watto strikes. Hopes takes a very good catch. Gayle's fine innings comes to an end. He wanted to swing a full delivery to the leg side but ended up slicing it high in the air towards cover point. It came down swirling in the air, Hopes moved to his side, managed to fix his eye on the ball and hung on to it. Big blow. Enter Bravo. 188/3
    0.3 Plumb. Lee didn't even appeal initially as he ran on straight before turning to query Bucknor. Full, fast, tailing into middle and leg and the tentative Xavier is caught on the shuffle. Gone. 1/1
    23.4 Lee takes out Sarwan. It kicked up from short of length and came in from outside off, Sarwan wanted to punch it square off the back foot, the bat went outside the line and he feathered a inner edge. Enter Chanders. 138/2
    48.6 The death rattle. Chanderpaul goes down on his knee and tries to swing the slow off cutter, misses and the off stump is pegged back. Bracken roars. The crowd sigh. Darren Sammy walks out to join Ramdin. Game is on the knife edge. 275/6

    42.6 Clatter. The off cutter, full in length, shaping in towards the middle and off, Bravo plays all around it. Yet another twist. Australia continue to hustle. West Indies fight on. 36 from 42 and this dead-rubber is alive and kicking. 247/4
    47.2 What a stunner from Michael Hussey at midwicket. The game swings around once more. Findlay tries to force a full length delivery and it flies off the inner half well to the left of Hussey who dives full stretch with his left arm outstretched and some how manages to pluck the ball. Awesome. 271/5
