The players shake hands and that is it, the match is a draw. Good performance from West Indies, coming back well after the defeat at Brisbane. A fascinating game of Test cricket, the pitch held up for five days. Australia did well to draw the game on the final day. Although the match meandered to a draw, it was an absorbing Test match.

Nadeem: "This is why test cricket is beautiful. After a horrid performance last week, the Windies have redeemed themselves well. The amount of storylines, from Nash's fighting 1st innings knock, to big Benn's spirited bowling, and finally a top 100 from Gayle. 2020 cannot offer this, and will never be able to. Cricket is not hit and giggles."

Ponting: "We needed to get off to a good start, we did not get it, It was that sort of wicket, everyone got going but nobody capitalized"

Gayle: "We thought it was a good game, good effort for five days, we are looking forward to Perth, Bravo getting a 100, Benn getting a five-wicket haul, a good wicket to bat on, we need some rest and recovery before we go to the third Test, we were a better team for five days but we could not put up a result"

About the referral system, Gayle says it is confusing and he is not a big fan of it. Ponting on the other hand says, lets us see it for few more games before we decide, different views.

Gayle is the Man-of-the-Match. Thanks for being with us, it has been a pleasure bringing you the commentary and thanks for all the emails. On behalf of James Alter, David Walsh, Sanjay Murari, this is Binoy George signing off.

Thanks again, see you all at Perth for another fascinating contest, until then bye from all of us here at Cricinfo.
