View dismissal AB Barath c Siddle b Harris 22 76 54 2 0 40.74
17.3 and it works immediately. Barath should have known better. This was a plan posted on Twitter. Harris goes round the stumps, has a man on on the hook and at short leg. The bouncer was expected. Barath should have known that. He hooks this from well outside off, gets the top edge, and is caught simply and gleefully at deep backward square. All the hard work of 75 minutes wasted. Full points to Harris, though, for trying to change things up a bit 38/1
View dismissal KC Brathwaite c †Wade b Siddle 57 275 199 4 0 28.64
67.1 oh got him first ball! A feather edge behind and it gives Matthew Wade his first wicket in Tests. They check the no-ball but Siddle is just about ok, very tight though and Brathwaite has to go after a painstaking innings. He worked very hard but felt for a length ball outside off and has nicked it behind, not the best use of the feet, he got a touch square up 167/3
View dismissal KA Edwards c & b Warner 61 146 107 10 1 57.00
54.3 Warner produces the wicket. His first in Test cricket. He goes wide of the crease, the ball doesn't quite come out right, pitches short, and Edwards rocks back to hit this one somewhere. The ball turns away, though, taking the bottom part of the bat, and flies straight back at Warner, who recovers well in the follow-through to catch it low to his right 142/2
View dismissal DM Bravo c Hussey b Watson 51 170 123 7 1 41.46
94.1 Watto finally gets one. Length ball, pitched on off, shapes away a bit, Bravo is committed to the shot, and manages only an outside edge. This one goes neither short, nor over. Neither right not left. Straight to gully 240/4
S Chanderpaul not out 103 387 248 9 1 41.53
View dismissal N Deonarine c †Wade b Harris 21 41 30 4 0 70.00
103.3 this is a clear plan at work, perhaps they knew Deonarine is not good at ducking. This short ball is right at the target. Like a body serve in tennis, this has handcuffed him. Chest high, middle and off, Deonarine is caught in the headlights, and turns the bat face late, only to top-edge it to Wade. Good bowling to a good plan 285/5
View dismissal CS Baugh run out (Harris) 22 52 39 4 0 56.41
115.1 Lyon to Chanderpaul, off stump and pushed to the 45, oh they take a single, Baugh is sent back, direct hit and gone! Terrible running there was never a single there, it was straight to the fielder and the great work by Harris has produced a wicket from nowhere 316/6
View dismissal DJG Sammy* c Cowan b Hilfenhaus 41 56 36 4 3 113.88
125.6 Hilfenahus strikes. He is good with those sharp short deliveries. This one is not too short, and hurries onto Sammy, at 141ks, between his rib and chest, and Sammy's limp pull is caught at deepish midwicket. An important, and entertaining, hand by Sammy comes to an end 369/7
View dismissal KAJ Roach c Clarke b Lyon 16 40 30 1 0 53.33
135.6 gone now though It may not be Chanderpaul but it is a breakthrough and Roach goes very well caught at slip by Clarke. He came forward to a length ball with hard hands and got a good edge to Clarke's left, it's a fine take with the left hand, held on very well 402/8
View dismissal FH Edwards c Hussey b Warner 10 17 12 2 0 83.33
140.3 short this time and pulled in the air and caught by mid on running round to his right. An absolute shocking dismissal for Warner to claim cause it was a rank long hop that Edwards fluffed into the leg side and in the end it was a simple catch 421/9

View dismissal EJM Cowan c †Baugh b Sammy 14 60 42 3 0 33.33
12.3 Sammy, Sammy, Sammy. He never plays a Test without his place being questioned, but here he has scored runs, and has taken the first wicket. He has kept on teasing Cowan, and Cowan finally follows one. To be fair to Sammy, this length ball is closer to off than the previous ones, but not close enough to not leave. And he doesn't cover the angle well, and gets an edge through to Baugh 50/1
View dismissal DA Warner c Bravo b Sammy 42 98 55 5 0 76.36
20.2 That man Sammy again. That annoying line on and outside off. And the angle. Warner has let one go in this over, but follows this one. Not close to the pitch of it. And the edge ensues. Caught at second slip by Bravo. No stopping Sammy's joy 65/2
View dismissal SR Watson c †Baugh b Roach 39 142 80 5 1 48.75
42.2 gone second ball! It's a horror shot from Watson, wafting at a wide length ball and he's nicked off. He didn't really get his big stride in there and hung the bat out in a very loose drive, it was a good edge to the keeper who couldn't drop it going to his right with two hands at chest height 133/4
View dismissal RT Ponting run out (Brathwaite/†Baugh) 4 20 13 1 0 30.76
23.6 FH Edwards to Watson, Watson has run Ponting out. Complete brain freeze. Contribution also from by Brathwaite's superb slide and throw, but Watson's lack of calling was shocking here. Short of a length, angling in to middle, worked away towards fine leg, easy single taken. Watson then wants the second, he is adamant, although there is no second available. Brathwaite from the infield runs back and slides and throws even before fine leg can come in. The throw is accurate, and Ponting is well short. Ponting didn't want the second, but Watson was stubborn, and eventually pulled him out of the crease. In fact he was within hand-shaking distance when Ponting was run out 84/3
View dismissal MJ Clarke* c Deonarine b Bishoo 73 223 173 4 1 42.19
78.1 in the air and out! Big wicket as Clarke goes caught at deep mid off. He tried to be aggressive down the ground again but didn't get to the pitch and skied a top edge to Deonarine coming in off the rope, he got their in good time but juggled the chance slightly. Either way, the Australian captain is out and that could be a turning point 215/5
View dismissal MEK Hussey c †Baugh b Roach 48 205 167 6 0 28.74
98.2 Hussey loses the patience game. Australia still short of avoiding the follow-on. Roach goes wide of the crease, pitches on a length, around off, Hussey drives, is done in by the angle, and edges this low to the left of Baugh, whose exceptional Test with the gloves continues with this catch in front of him and way to his left 249/6
View dismissal MS Wade c Bravo b FH Edwards 28 121 97 3 0 28.86
108.5 another sucker ball, and he gets the edge this time. Clearly Wade has been unsettled by the bouncer. Full, about a set of stumps outside off, Wade drives without moving the feet. The edge is taken, and snared by Bravo at second slip. Just to rub it in, the PA man plays "Hit the road jack" as Wade walks back 285/8
View dismissal PM Siddle c KA Edwards b FH Edwards 0 9 6 0 0 0.00
99.4 They have bounced Siddle out. From the moment he has arrived he has been pinged back and further back. West Indies are on fire here. Short again, Siddle sees it is well short, and thinks he can afford to take his eye off. while he is ducking he realises the ball hasn't bounced up at all, and he sticks his bat up. The ball spoons towards gully, where Edwards produced a diving catch to his right. Another man who has had a good Test in the field 250/7

View dismissal BW Hilfenhaus b Roach 24 57 29 5 0 82.75
119.2 heave-ho. Timber-to. Hilfenhaus has done this with success so far, but Roach gets one through. Finally bowling the delivery that hits the top of the stumps. Not full enough to drive, not short enough to miss the stumps. And Hilfenhaus swings in the next post code of the line of the ball. Gone. Top of middle. This hits a crack, too. An import hand from Ben, though 329/9

2.3 timber. Australia in business. Really full delivery, and a really difficult one too. This is shaping up like an outswinger, and Barath plays for that swing, but upon pitching the ball takes the other direction, hits the inside edge, and then the stumps. Don't know if this was intentional, but a really good delivery in the end 2/1

2.5 Hilfieeeee. That;s two openers in one over. A totally out-of-character shot from KB. Is this pressure? Shortish, wide, and he of all people shouldn't be playing at these. But he does. Flashes at it. No feet. Gets a feather. And walks 3/2
View dismissal KA Edwards lbw b Hilfenhaus 1 15 7 0 0 14.28
4.2 Carnage here. Edwards has moved too far across, but he will review this. Just short of a length, pitches off, goes on a little, Edwards is too far across, misses, and is hit in front of leg. The projection shows it to be clipping leg. And Edwards has to go 4/3
View dismissal DM Bravo c †Wade b Siddle 32 148 78 3 0 41.02
33.5 there's the breakthrough a loose drive outside off stump and an edge behind. Bravo is furious with himself. That just left him and the edge carries nicely to Wade to send the Aussie's dancing around once more 67/5
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c †Wade b Harris 12 23 21 2 0 57.14
9.5 gone! What a huge wicket! Chanderpaul is squared up on the crease and nicks it behind where Wade takes a nice catch down low to his left. A length ball just nibbled away slightly, Chanderpaul perhaps followed it a little and got a decent edge. That is massive for Australia who suddenly become big favourites to go on and win the match 17/4
View dismissal N Deonarine lbw b Harris 21 143 104 0 0 20.19
40.3 Harris has struck pretty early easily in the morning. And he has done so with a superb delivery. Dead plumb, is Deonarine. A length ball, pitches off, and then nips back in, towards the shiny side, and hits him on the knee roll in front of the middle stump, and on the crease. ND does well by not wasting the review. They don't come plumber 75/6
View dismissal CS Baugh c Harris b Hilfenhaus 23 93 48 2 0 47.91
52.2 Australia one chip closer to batting. Not the smartest of shots. Baugh goes at a length ball with hard hands. It might have stopped a touch at him, and he has chipped this straight down mid-on's throat 116/8
View dismissal DJG Sammy* b Watson 14 43 34 2 0 41.17
49.4 Lyon can breathe easy. Watson has broken through with those mysterious powers of breaking through. This is a dismissal Watson the batsman will be proud of. This is a length ball, swinging in, Sammy plays with soft hands, but the ball is bouncing towards the stumps, so he tries to kick it away, in the process kicking the ball onto the stumps. Had Sammy not pushed it further, it may or may not have gone on to hit the stumps 106/7
View dismissal KAJ Roach b Harris 25 82 49 1 0 51.02
66.4 timber. Harris has broken through. Sixty overs, 192 runs. That's the equation. Sammy applauds Roach's fight. This is short of a length, outside off, and moves in. Roach pushes away from the body, gets an inside edge that hits the stumps 148/10

57.4 and after some fight shown by Edwards, here is a brain fade. He is a better tailender than this, and he has seen Roach hang in too. But here he heave-hos at a short-of-a-length delivery, and toe-ends it high into the sky. Caught at mid-off 125/9
