8.3

8.4

8.5

Siddle to Barath, no run, this is short of a length, moves in towards the pads, turns the bat early, and misses

8.6

Siddle to Barath, no run, another beautiful off-drive, but we have a mid-off now, and Harris has made an exceptional diving save there to save the boundary

West Indies 24/0   PM Siddle 1-0-6-0

10.1

Siddle to Barath, no run, short one, 141ks, that's a really good delivery, hurrying AB up, but it's just a bit down leg, and hence easy to stay away from

10.3

12.1

Siddle to Brathwaite, no run, length ball, just outside off, straightens a touch, defended back to him

12.2

Siddle to Brathwaite, no run, dropped by Siddle. Length ball outside off, KB is early into it, the bottom hand comes off, and he spoons it back to the left of Siddle. This comes to Siddo in slow motion. Almost too slow. He sticks out his left hand, but he can't hold on. Stunned looks around

West Indies 26/0   PM Siddle 3-1-7-0

14.1

Siddle to Barath, no run, bouncer, 139ks, over the stumps, AB ducks under it with time to spare

14.2

Siddle to Barath, 1 wide, this bouncer is much too short, and is called a wide

14.2

Siddle to Barath, FOUR, loose stroke, wide length ball, AB drives at it merrily. He has to reach for it because he is not close to the line, and hits it in the air, but wide of gully, to the right of Hussey

14.3

Siddle to Barath, 1 run, this is closer to Barath, and he drives much straighter, taking a single to wide of mid-off

14.4

14.5

16.1

Siddle to Brathwaite, no run, full ball, driven back with any extravagance, Siddle gets a hand to it and deflects it to mid-on

16.2

Siddle to Brathwaite, FOUR, he has threaded the gullies, and hasn't done it intentionally. This is just a loose shot to a short ball outside off, and the ball flies between the two gullies. Hands on head all around

16.3

Siddle to Brathwaite, no run, half-volley outside off, driven to mid-off, along the ground

16.4

Siddle to Brathwaite, no run, bouncer, well outside off, no problem leaving it well alone

25.2

Siddle to KA Edwards, no run, short and wide, moving further away, Wade has to dive in front of first slip

25.3

Siddle to KA Edwards, no run, fuller but still wide, and he need not play at it. Wade collects in front of first slip again

25.4

Siddle to KA Edwards, no run, wide half-volley again, but for no particular reason Edwards fives in and goes after it. The late swing beats the bat

25.5

Siddle to KA Edwards, no run, this is a better delivery and better response from Edwards too. Length ball, close to off, moving away, Edwards pushes well inside the line of it

25.6

Siddle to KA Edwards, no run, this is off target again, well wide of off, left alone again, and Wade for the third time in this over, collects in front of first slip

27.5

Siddle to Brathwaite, no run, slower ball, 121ks, full and wide outside off, and pace doesn't matter to KB if you bowl that wide. He is just not going to bother

27.6

Siddle to Brathwaite, no run, another leave well outside off. KB has now faced 14.3 overs for 22 runs. Imagine if he is unbeaten at stumps

53.1

Siddle to KA Edwards, no run, short of a length, wide of off, left alone. A loosener

53.2

Siddle to KA Edwards, FOUR, short and wide, stands tall to punch it away in front of square, through extra cover. Edwards is turning it on now

53.3

West Indies 144/2   PM Siddle 13-6-32-0

57.1

Siddle to Brathwaite, no run, good bouncer, 140ks, chest-shoulder high, on middle, and equally well left by Brathwaite too. No periscope even. Sways away from the line

57.2

Siddle to Brathwaite, no run, not that good with this bouncer. Again chest high, again on the stumps, he fends at it, but the edge falls safe towards cover

57.3

Siddle to Brathwaite, no run, another bouncer now. You can hear the Kensington Oval buzzing. Brathwaite ducks under it

West Indies 147/2   PM Siddle 14-6-33-0

67.1

Siddle to Brathwaite, OUT, 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

KC Brathwaite c †Wade b Siddle 57 (275m 199b 4x4 0x6) SR: 28.64

West Indies 190/3   PM Siddle 20-9-44-1

87.1

Siddle to Bravo, 1 run, starts with a full delivery on the pads, Bravo nudges it away into the leg side

87.2

87.3

Siddle to Chanderpaul, no run, reaches out for this full and wide delivery, is almost squatting by the time he makes contact, but the ball hardly leaves the ground as it goes to point

West Indies 219/3   PM Siddle 21-9-48-1

89.1

Siddle to Chanderpaul, no run, length ball, angling away from just outside off, pushed back to Siddle

89.2

Siddle to Chanderpaul, no run, half-volley outside off, the bat jams on it, doesn't get any timing, and the ball limps towards short cover

91.3

Siddle to Bravo, FOUR, Siddle produces another loose shot. Full and wide, Bravo chases it with no feet, the edge scoops over the gullies

91.4

Siddle to Bravo, FOUR, loose again. Short of a length, just outside off, Bravo is not near it, but flashes at it, and the edge flies over the cordon. That's fifty for Bravo. I think this innings has featured three back-to-back boundaries, and long spell sof patience in between

91.5

Siddle to Bravo, no run, length ball, just outside off, holding its line, but Bravo doesn't play at this one. Playing only at the wider deliveries

91.6

Siddle to Bravo, 1 run, slower ball, 118ks, but ends up being a high full toss on the stumps. Bravo's head falls back, but he manages to drive it for a single to deep cover. Well, hello. Bravo didn't make his crease, doesn't touch down, assumes the single us made, and walks back to talk to Chanders. Should be called a short run. Or maybe not. he eventually went back into the crease to face the ball, so the single was completed then. But Australia did have a run-out opportunity
