Harris to Barath, OUT, 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

AB Barath c Siddle b Harris 22 (76m 54b 2x4 0x6) SR: 40.74

West Indies 38/1   KC Brathwaite 15* (51b 2x4)   RJ Harris 4.3-0-12-1

Warner to KA Edwards, OUT, 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

KA Edwards c & b Warner 61 (146m 107b 10x4 1x6) SR: 57.00

West Indies 142/2   KC Brathwaite 51* (166b 4x4)   DA Warner 2.3-0-9-1

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 167/3   DM Bravo 18* (44b 1x4 1x6)   PM Siddle 14.1-6-33-1

Watson to Bravo, OUT, 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

DM Bravo c Hussey b Watson 51 (170m 123b 7x4 1x6) SR: 41.46

West Indies 240/4   S Chanderpaul 36* (84b 5x4)   SR Watson 8.1-3-19-1

Harris to Deonarine, OUT, 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

N Deonarine c †Wade b Harris 21 (41m 30b 4x4 0x6) SR: 70.00

West Indies 285/5   S Chanderpaul 56* (110b 7x4 1x6)   RJ Harris 22.3-7-59-2

Lyon to Chanderpaul, OUT, 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

CS Baugh run out 22 (52m 39b 4x4 0x6) SR: 56.41

West Indies 316/6   S Chanderpaul 65* (141b 7x4 1x6)   NM Lyon 17.1-6-60-0

Hilfenhaus to Sammy, OUT, 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

DJG Sammy c Cowan b Hilfenhaus 41 (56m 36b 4x4 3x6) SR: 113.88

West Indies 369/7   S Chanderpaul 73* (170b 8x4 1x6)   BW Hilfenhaus 28-11-52-1

Lyon to Roach, OUT, 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

KAJ Roach c Clarke b Lyon 16 (40m 30b 1x4 0x6) SR: 53.33

West Indies 402/8   S Chanderpaul 86* (200b 9x4 1x6)   NM Lyon 23-8-84-1

Warner to FH Edwards, OUT, 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

FH Edwards c Hussey b Warner 10 (17m 12b 2x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

West Indies 421/9   S Chanderpaul 95* (215b 9x4 1x6)   DA Warner 8.3-0-40-2
