31.3

Bishoo to Clarke, FOUR, short and wide, extra bounce, takes the top edge on the cut, but it clears backward point with ease

31.4

Bishoo to Clarke, no run, lovely bowling, dip and turn. Clarke thinks he can reach this and play forward-defensive, but the ball dips sharply, falling short of his reach, and then spins past the bat. Baugh asks for a stumping, but Clarke has dragged the back foot back in time. This delivery sucked him out of the crease

Bishoo to Clarke, no run, fuller length now, easier for Clarke to just push forward and defend

33.6

Bishoo to Clarke, 1 run, expectedly Bishoo drags the length down this time, and Clarke is back waiting to cut it for one

Australia 121/3   MJ Clarke 19* (31b 1x4 1x6)

Australia 124/3   MJ Clarke 21* (35b 1x4 1x6)

35.1

Bishoo to Clarke, no run, That's a shooter, Clarke is given out caught at the wicket, and he has reviewed it immediately. This ball is a long hop but hardly leaves the ground. This is pitched off. Clarke goes for the cut, Baugh does really well to catch it. Tony Hill thinks and thinks before raising the finger. Clarke immediately makes the T sign. Replays show no deviation, but is that enough under the DRS? I don't think he has edged it, but I don't see enough conclusive evidence to overturn the call. No Hot Spot or Snicko in place. This is where DRS is a bit impotent. Long discussion on. And they have reversed it. West Indies don't like it. They don't see enough evidence to conclusively say the on-field umpire was wrong

35.2

Bishoo to Clarke, no run, looks to stretch forward, but the ball is a touch too full, and he stays on the crease to defend it to leg

35.3

Bishoo to Clarke, no run, quicker legbreak, just short of a length, Clarke is quick to rick back and cut it, but not past point

35.4

Bishoo to Clarke, no run, quick legbreak again, Clarke stays back and defends

35.5

Bishoo to Clarke, 1 run, short, not too wide, cut away to deep point

36.1

36.2

FH Edwards to Clarke, no run, wide of the crease, swinging in late, in front of stumps, a near yorker, dug out back to him

36.5

FH Edwards to Clarke, no run, length ball, just outside off, shaping in, defended to cover

52.2

Roach to Clarke, no run, angled in, struck on the pad a huge cry for lbw, not out and they refer the decision, going down for me and Ian Gould...too high also, very comfortably missing the stumps and that's the Windies reviews used up. They haven't used either review well
