Edwards to Warner, FOUR, more swing for Warner, but too straight, and Warner nudges it off the pads, collecting a nice little boundary to fine leg

Australia 4/0   DA Warner 4* (2b 1x4)   FH Edwards 0.2-0-4-0

Roach to Cowan, FOUR, gets a thick edge first up, angling this across him, and he gets four between slips and gully

Edwards to Warner, FOUR, strays a touch, and he deflects it off the pads pretty fine, and the new ball flies away for four

Australia 20/0   DA Warner 10* (15b 2x4)   FH Edwards 2.5-1-8-0

Edwards to Warner, FOUR, Edwards digs this one in, at 142ks, but there doesn't seem to be much bounce on offer, and Warner pulls this through midwicket for four

Roach to Cowan, FOUR, short and wide, and Cowan pulls out the upper-cut, guiding it over the slips for the second time this over, this time deliberately so

Australia 30/0   EJM Cowan 14* (17b 3x4)   KAJ Roach 2.3-0-16-0

Roach to Cowan, FOUR, doesn't seem to be the pitch to dig it in. Comes off slowly from half-way down, Cowan stays forward and still has enough time to pull this dead square for four

Australia 42/0   EJM Cowan 22* (33b 4x4)   KAJ Roach 4.3-1-26-0

Edwards to Warner, FOUR, short, wide and cut away this time, closer to Brathwaite than his earlier stops, and it goes through him

Australia 49/0   DA Warner 25* (32b 4x4)   FH Edwards 5.1-2-17-0

Sammy to Watson, FOUR, can't be bowling short on this pitch. Watson is forward, just transfers the weight back and pulls it dismissively. This is bowled at 122ks

Australia 60/1   SR Watson 6* (19b 1x4)   DJG Sammy 6.3-3-8-0

Sammy to Cowan, FOUR, angles across him, and provides him the width, and is too full. Cowan drives the half-volley through the covers

Australia 65/1   EJM Cowan 28* (70b 5x4)   DJG Sammy 7.5-3-12-0

Roach to Watson, FOUR, wide of the crease again, and pitched up too, this allows him to flick this from around off, and place it wide of mid-on for four

Australia 74/2   SR Watson 10* (39b 2x4)   KAJ Roach 6.5-2-35-1

Roach to Watson, FOUR, short and wide, despite the angle coming in, Watson late-cuts it superbly past gully for four. Can't bowl short on this wicket

Australia 82/2   SR Watson 16* (49b 3x4)   KAJ Roach 8.3-2-41-1

Roach to Clarke, FOUR, too straight this time, nudged away fine of long leg. Nice little welcome gift

Australia 87/3   MJ Clarke 4* (2b 1x4)   KAJ Roach 9.5-2-46-2

Roach to Clarke, FOUR, beautiful drive. Clarke leans into a length ball, covers the angle, and drives it on the up, between cover and mid-off

Australia 93/3   MJ Clarke 8* (4b 2x4)   KAJ Roach 10.1-2-50-2

Roach to Watson, FOUR, short again, and predictably four again. Almost every time they have pitched short, they have been punished. No bounce off this wicket. Watson smashes this square on the on side

Australia 98/3   SR Watson 24* (68b 4x4)   KAJ Roach 11.3-2-54-2

Roach to Watson, FOUR, Watson gets some pressure release. This is short again. Wide this time. Watson, even though he is forward, swings at it, cutting it through vacant third man for four

Australia 102/3   SR Watson 28* (70b 5x4)   KAJ Roach 11.5-2-58-2

Shillingford to Watson, FOUR, Watson manufactures one. Goes deep in the crease, beside the stumps, to get under this length ball, and pulls it over midwicket. Muscle power there

Australia 107/3   SR Watson 32* (77b 6x4)   S Shillingford 12.4-5-14-1

Shillingford to Clarke, FOUR, Clarke dances down the track, gets right down to the pitch of this flighted delivery outside off, and lofts it well over mid-on. You need to keep doing that now and then to spin

Australia 112/3   MJ Clarke 13* (32b 3x4)   S Shillingford 14.3-6-19-1

Deonarine to Clarke, FOUR, quicker, flatter, also shorter, Clarke transfers the weight quickly, and pulls this behind square for four. A rare boundary

Australia 132/3   MJ Clarke 21* (71b 4x4)   N Deonarine 4.4-0-13-0

Shillingford to Watson, FOUR, overpitched, Watson drives it nicely wide of mid-on, does really well to get the timing behind it, getting power also through a late whip of the wrists

Australia 138/3   SR Watson 49* (126b 7x4)   S Shillingford 17-6-26-1

Roach to Clarke, FOUR, full and wide to start off with, and he drives this through cover, and Brathwaite gives chase, but is touching the rope as he pulls the ball back in upon putting in the slide

Australia 142/3   MJ Clarke 26* (75b 5x4)   KAJ Roach 12.1-2-62-2

Roach to Clarke, FOUR, short and wide, Clarke cuts solidly, past gully, and West Indies have come out loose after tea. What's in the biscuits?

Australia 146/3   MJ Clarke 30* (76b 6x4)   KAJ Roach 12.2-2-66-2

Shillingford to Clarke, FOUR, Clarke is on fire here. He has flicked some sort of switch on after tea. Dances down the track, close to the pitch of the ball, and lofts it straight over his head

Australia 153/3   MJ Clarke 37* (81b 7x4)   S Shillingford 17.2-6-30-1

Roach to Clarke, FOUR, half-volley outside off, nicely driven along and down the ground, between mid-off and the bowler

Australia 165/3   MJ Clarke 45* (97b 8x4)   KAJ Roach 15.5-3-76-2

Shillingford to Hussey, (no ball) FOUR, filthy full toss. Shilly is rattled by whatever was in the eye. Hussey cashes in by hitting it for four to deep midwicket

Australia 173/4   MEK Hussey 5* (12b 1x4)   S Shillingford 22-7-42-1

Deonarine to Wade, FOUR, gets the cuttable length this time, and does well with it, cutting it to the right of point for a rare boundary

Australia 193/5   MS Wade 7* (28b 1x4)   N Deonarine 14.4-3-28-1

Edwards to Hussey, FOUR, full and wide, driven nicely, along the carpet, past cover, Shillingford chases, dives, and loses his footing while diving, and nearly crashes into the fence behind the cover boundary

Australia 205/5   MEK Hussey 24* (74b 2x4)   FH Edwards 12.2-7-26-0

Edwards to Pattinson, FOUR, full on the pads, and Pattinson has flicked this away impressively, past midwicket, for a four all along the ground

Australia 223/6   JL Pattinson 8* (29b 1x4)   FH Edwards 17.5-10-36-0

Roach to Hussey, FOUR, swinging away from him, but this is full enough for Hussey to drive at it, and he places this wide of cover

Australia 229/6   MEK Hussey 37* (111b 3x4)   KAJ Roach 22.4-5-90-3

Shillingford to Hussey, FOUR, follows it up with a long hop, and Hussey is ruthless in pulling this through midwicket

Australia 234/6   MEK Hussey 42* (114b 4x4)   S Shillingford 32.2-11-60-2

Sammy to Pattinson, FOUR, and after playing and missing all morning, Pattinson pulls out a cracking cut shot to a short and wide delivery, through cover-point for four

Australia 257/6   JL Pattinson 15* (52b 2x4)   DJG Sammy 13.5-5-23-0

Sammy to Pattinson, FOUR, extra bounce still. Shortish, on off, and it gets a little big him on him as he cuts. The edge flies wide of fourth slip/gully

Australia 267/6   JL Pattinson 21* (60b 3x4)   DJG Sammy 15.3-6-27-0

Shillingford to Pattinson, FOUR, tossed up higher, outside off, and JP drives with an open face, between cover and cover-point. He is not playing and missing after that rain break

Australia 275/6   JL Pattinson 25* (77b 4x4)   S Shillingford 39.5-13-75-2

Edwards to Pattinson, FOUR, length ball on off, cuts away a little, and now Pattinson gets a thick edge that runs past gully. Edwards has hands on his knees now. He must have walked under a few ladders today

Australia 282/6   JL Pattinson 29* (84b 5x4)   FH Edwards 21.4-10-45-0

Shillingford to Lyon, FOUR, full on off, sweeps, the bat comes down from high, keeps it down, gets four past square leg

Australia 303/8   NM Lyon 5* (7b 1x4)   S Shillingford 48.1-17-91-3

Roach to Hilfenhaus, FOUR, that's some shot. Front-foot cut? Punch? Call it whatever. Short of a length. Doesn't care he is forward, and goes through with it, and places it between gully and point

Australia 309/8   BW Hilfenhaus 5* (11b 1x4)   KAJ Roach 26.3-5-103-3
