Aha, there we have Rod "Bachhus" Marsh in the crowd. At his time, the owner of the rights to sing "Under The Southern Cross I Stand". When he retired, just before Australia came to the West Indies in 1984, he passed it on to Allan Border, and told him to use it judiciously, only after special Test wins. A week later, here at QPO, Border saved a Test along with last-man Alderman (correct me if I am wrong). Marsh called Border that day, and asked him to sing that song because that draw was special, and that Border had earned it after his duel with big bird Garner

Hilfenhaus to Chanderpaul, no run, rolls his fingers on this, 121ks, on leg, cutting away, defended to point

52.6

Hilfenhaus to Chanderpaul, no run, wide length ball, pushed to point with an open face

"The beauty of cricinfo. Sometimes you get poetry or jokes or philosophical ponderings on the nature of generators. And Occasionally someone attempts to break the flow by talking about cricket" Brad, to go to cricket just for cricket is like going to an inn just to drink, said Cardus. People need to realise that, and not break the flow

Hussey is back, 19 minutes before lunch

54.1

Hussey to Chanderpaul, no run, short, around off, but hardly comes on, and Shiv has to wait for an eternity, and doesn't get any sort of timing into the cut

54.2

Hussey to Chanderpaul, 1 run, swinging into the pads, picked away wide of mid-on for one

54.3

Hussey to Deonarine, no run, short of a length, stump to stump, pushed back to him

54.4

Hussey to Deonarine, no run, swinging in, on off, defended back to him

"Any reason why Australia sing it after pretty much every win now?" And Brad, it used to be an indoors thing. I am not criticising its coming out in the open or anything, but Rick McCosker told him it used to be sacred, even the players' family members didn't not know the lyrics. Not least because of the language

54.5

Hussey to Deonarine, no run, defended to mid-off

54.6

Hussey to Deonarine, no run, floating outswinger, blocked in front of middle and leg

End of over 55 (1 run) West Indies 114/4

55.1

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, length ball, turning in, worked off the pads

55.2

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, full, turning in to the pads, worked away past short leg

55.3

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, flighted outside off, reaches its pitch, and blocks it

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, fuller, quicker, turning in to middle and leg, pushed past short leg

55.6

Beer to Chanderpaul, 1 run, fired into the pads, worked away - I think - for the first run of Beer in this spell

End of over 56 (1 run) West Indies 115/4

Hussey to Deonarine, no run, full outside off, drives well, but straight to mid-off

56.6

Hussey to Deonarine, 1 wide, wide outside off, angles away too, and stays low, Wade is down on the ground, desperately sticking the glove out to prevent wides. Called a wide

56.6

Hussey to Deonarine, 1 run, early into the drive, gets a thick edge, wide of short cover, gets another single, that strike-rate is improving exponentially

End of over 57 (3 runs) West Indies 118/4

57.1

Beer to Deonarine, no run, length ball, turning in to the pads, defended to short leg

57.2

Beer to Deonarine, no run, comes down the track to kick this back to him

"Talking about commentating off topic the best I've heard has come from Shane warne. Man he can't string an idea together for more than five minutes. Unbelievable he had the ability to outthink opponents over a test match. But the best off topic was at the Sydney test where harsha had the chilli. In the immortal words of richie benaud "classic stuff that"" And Brad, the whole crowd turned back to the radio booth. Even the players were distracted. And Skull went, "I'll blame you if Clarke gets out now."

57.3

Beer to Deonarine, 1 run, driven wide of mid-off for one

57.4

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, short of a length, turning in sharply, defended behind square on leg

"I hear Geoffrey Boycott has recorded this session of cricket, he can't wait to get home and watch it on loop" Wombat knows his Geoffrey a little too well. Here's Lyon

58.1

Lyon to Deonarine, no run, what a start. Length ball on off, Deo is playing for the line, but it kicks away, and bounces chest high for Wade. Beaten comprehensively

58.2

Lyon to Deonarine, FOUR, slog-sweep. That should free them a bit, although there is only five minutes to lunch. Full, on the pads, he opens up the front leg, and slogs-sweeps this through vacant midwicket

58.3

Lyon to Deonarine, FOUR, orthodox sweep now. Too full, too straight, and he plays this behind square, all along the ground

58.4

Lyon to Deonarine, no run, short of a length, just outside off, turns away sharply, Deo half-pushes at it, is beaten by a long way

58.5

Lyon to Deonarine, no run, full, middle and off, defended back to him

58.6

Lyon to Deonarine, no run, short of a length, on off, pushed to cover

End of over 59 (8 runs) West Indies 127/4

S Chanderpaul    40* (131b 4x4)      MA Beer    15-8-25-1

59.1

Beer to Chanderpaul, FOUR, Shiv brings out the broom too. Premeditated sweep, but the ball is flat, and on the pads, and he has placed it behind square for another boundary

Last over before lunch

59.2

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, full, outside off, defended easily

59.3

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, length ball, outside off, pushed back to him

59.4

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, tossed up, the ball dips, Shiv covers the turn, defends this to leg

"So I've manage to convince my boss that our company's box at the QPO needs a safety inspection:-).......Hopefully I can make for the post lunch session. Any ideas on how to be able to stay there for the rest of the day?" TryingToDitchWork, you could easily tell your boss you are stuck in the lift during another power-cut at QPO

59.5

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, full and flat, defended to leg

59.6

Beer to Chanderpaul, 1 run, What in the name of cricketing saneness is this? A run-out off the last ball before lunch? Not quite. He is saved by half a frame. Shiv pushes this wide of mid-on, and Deo is caught napping, and is nearly run out. Hussey throws to the keeper, and he is in only by half a frame. That would have been an embarrassing run-out

12.02pm This is lunch then. A session during which a power-cut, the absence of DRS, and possibly commercial considerations stopped play for about 20 minutes. A session during which both sides worked hard, 83 runs came, and a wicket fell... to Michael Hussey. West Indies are still up against it, and we will see you at about 12.35pm

End of over 60 (5 runs) West Indies 132/4
S Chanderpaul    45* (137b 5x4)      MA Beer    16-8-30-1
N Deonarine    12* (48b 2x4)      NM Lyon    16-5-35-0

We are about to resume play even as Bill sends this in, "Barrington, Boycott, Baichan...dozed off during lunch. What a nightmare I had..." Australia are the first ones to walk out onto the field. It's an overcast afternoon, and the humidity could help swing. A good thing for West Indies then that the new ball is not around for another 20 overs

12.35pm "If I were mean I'd say that I am going home to watch the paint dry on my newly painted living room wall, instead of keeping with the cricket but, if truth be told, that session was probably what the West Indies needed! (take time out of the match, save the follow on and just lose 1 wicket)" Mark Kidger has instead chosen to watch grass grow, and we are back to QPO. Another interesting session in the offing

60.1

Lyon to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, on the pads, glanced away fine for a couple past short fine

60.2

Lyon to Chanderpaul, no run, flighted on off, he presses forward, and lets it turn past the stumps

60.3

Lyon to Chanderpaul, 3 runs, full toss on the pads, and he has worked away for three past midwicket to bring up yet another fifty. A generous applause from the QPO crowd, and he accepts it, and pumps fists with ND

60.4

Lyon to Deonarine, no run, looks for the slog-sweep from outside off, and doesn't connect. Beaten by turn and bounce

60.5

Lyon to Deonarine, no run, pushed to cover in defence

60.6

Lyon to Deonarine, no run, full, on off, driven to cover, along the ground

End of over 61 (5 runs) West Indies 137/4

S Chanderpaul    50* (140b 5x4)      MA Beer    16-8-30-1

Pattinson gets another go. Wade must be on his toes again

61.1

Pattinson to Chanderpaul, FOUR, full and wide, a nice little half-volley, and Shiv C drives it superbly between cover and cover-point, all along the ground

"Why WI have 3 inexperience player @ the top of the order that create so much pressure on the middle order is beyond common sense to me. Shiv should bat higher in the order and bravo @ 3 to have a little balance with the younger players." Strong point, Desmond Marshall

61.2

Pattinson to Chanderpaul, 1 no ball, another no-ball from JP, and a wide length ball too, driven to cover

61.2

Pattinson to Chanderpaul, FOUR, short and wide now, and Chanderpaul is right on top of it, cutting it through point, and square of the man in the deep

61.3

Pattinson to Chanderpaul, (no ball) FOUR, another no-ball from Pattinson, and Chanderpaul takes four more. Short of a length, wide enough, and Chanderpaul opens the face late to guide this between slips and gully. Fifty for the partnership too

Lest he get too excited, Chanders digs a fresh guard. Pattinson goes round the stumps. One wide slip

61.3

Pattinson to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, Pattinson bowls short, and he is deep in the crease to pull this through midwicket

61.4

Pattinson to Chanderpaul, no run, short of a length, angling in, pushed to leg

61.5

Pattinson to Chanderpaul, no run, wide length ball, left alone

Eighty-two scores of fifty or more for Shiv. Sixth-highest overall, and joint-highest for West Indies, along with BC Lara

61.6

Pattinson to Chanderpaul, no run, decent delivery. Short of a length, angling in, Shiv pushes inside the line of it

End of over 62 (16 runs) West Indies 153/4
S Chanderpaul    64* (148b 8x4)      JL Pattinson    7-2-32-1
N Deonarine    12* (51b 2x4)      NM Lyon    17-5-40-0

"Forget all the Bravo/Lara comparisons. Pattinson is doing a pretty good impression of a right arm Mitchell Johnson." How fitting and opportunistic that a feedbacker named Lee should jump on it

62.1

Lyon to Deonarine, no run, floated on middle and off, defended back to him

62.2

Lyon to Deonarine, no run, drives at this delivery, along the ground to cover-point

62.3

Lyon to Deonarine, no run, stays back and defend a length ball

The sun is out again

62.4

Lyon to Deonarine, 2 runs, pushes with soft hands at a flighted delivery, gets a thick edge past slip, along the ground

62.5

Lyon to Deonarine, 2 runs, flighted again, a more catchable edge as this has gone at a catchable height, but far too wide of slip. Deo must have thought this is full enough to drive, but the ball still turned appreciably

62.6

Lyon to Deonarine, no run, stays back, blocks a length delivery in front of off

End of over 63 (4 runs) West Indies 157/4
N Deonarine    16* (57b 2x4)      NM Lyon    18-5-44-0

"I really really hope my boss isn't also following on cricinfo. Inspection cancelled. Come on Shiv 10,000 runs beckoning!" StuckAtWork, you have at least caught your boss reading Cricinfo when he should be working

63.1

Pattinson to Chanderpaul, 1 run, short and wide again, cut away again, this time he finds that sweeper-cover

Over the wicket to ND now

63.2

Pattinson to Deonarine, no run, short of a length, middle and leg, defended back to him

"I'm not surprised Pattinson's over was a wayward one... I'm surprised he even remembered how to bowl given how long he's been standing in the field NOT bowling." CSB, he has bowled so less because this was one of his better-disciplined overs

63.3

Pattinson to Deonarine, no run, full and wide, well wide, lucky not to be called

63.4

Pattinson to Deonarine, no run, length ball, wide, left alone as it angles away

63.5

Pattinson to Deonarine, no run, short and wide, angling away, Deo is tired of shouldering arms, and he cuts this away, but Warner dives full length at cover-point to save four runs

Round the stumps

63.6

Pattinson to Deonarine, no run, short of a length, angling in, pushed back to him

End of over 64 (1 run) West Indies 158/4

"Dont crib about boredom guys, spare a thought for Mr.Monga and the scorer.Ask him if he is enjoying his work and if he is not missing the IPL action back home??: Vivek S, I am prettay good. Prettay preattay prettay good. Thank you very much for your thought, though. Missing IPL? Seriously? I am happy to be away

64.1

Lyon to Chanderpaul, no run, length ball on off, defended to cover

End of over 65 (2 runs) West Indies 160/4

Watson is back. His first spell was insipid. One wide slip, one silly mid-off

65.1

Watson to Deonarine, no run, and he starts with a slow ball again, which bounces well in front of Wade, and hits him in the rib. These bowlers aren't doing poor Wade any favours at all

65.2

Watson to Deonarine, 1 run, this one jumped. From short of a length, into the ribs, Deo takes the bottom hand off, and fends this behind square

65.3

Watson to Chanderpaul, no run, full on off, driven with an open face to cover

"Got to give it to the Cricinfo team for calling it yesterday when they said this pitch would get a final verdict after Shiv C has batted on it." Thank you for that email Jason, else I would have had to toot my own horn

65.4

Watson to Chanderpaul, no run, length ball on off, pushed to cover-point

65.5

Watson to Chanderpaul, no run, short of a length, on off, defended with an open face

N Deonarine    18* (68b 2x4)      NM Lyon    19-5-46-0

"The irony surrounding your use of the word insipid is that in Trinidad we would say that Watson 'sucked salt'." Ahh the West Indies slang. Thanks for that, Stefan. A slip, a silly point, a short leg

66.1

Lyon to Deonarine, no run, appeal for lbw.Length ball on off, goes with the arm, seems to have been defended off the bat. Umpire thinks so too. They don't review it, but the replays show it is pad first

66.2

Lyon to Deonarine, FOUR, another full toss on the pads. He wasted one in the last over, but has whipped this one through midwicket

66.3

Lyon to Deonarine, no run, hit on the pad during another forward-defensive, but he has got outside the line

66.4

Lyon to Deonarine, no run, in a tangle there. Leaves the crease too early. Lyon pulls this down, and Deo has to stretch well forward to get bat on it, and prevent a stumping

I Just noticed they have a gully in too

66.5

Lyon to Deonarine, no run, defended of the front foot

66.6

Lyon to Deonarine, 2 runs, Edged again, but he eludes that gully too. Full ball, he drives, but it turns away and takes a thick edge

End of over 67 (6 runs) West Indies 167/4
N Deonarine    24* (74b 3x4)      NM Lyon    20-5-52-0
S Chanderpaul    66* (155b 8x4)      SR Watson    5-1-5-0

"Sorry to burst your bubble there... but the issue was never whether Chanderpaul would make runs, I believe Sid was talking about batsmen not being able to score quickly, which Shiv has not done either." Point taken, CSB, but to be fair to me, you can't expect Shiv to be swinging with his team 49 for 3. He has taken off after lunch, though. And I like that you are following our coverage closely

67.1

Watson to Chanderpaul, no run, length ball, around off, defended to gully

67.2

Watson to Chanderpaul, no run, slower ball, short of a length, cut to gully

67.3

67.4

Watson to Chanderpaul, 1 run, short of a length, middle and leg, Shiv is across, and works it behind square on the leg side

67.5

Watson to Deonarine, 2 runs, length ball on the pads, worked past square leg. A flowing stroke. ND growing in confidence

67.6

Watson to Deonarine, no run, length ball, stays low again, he does well to be forward, and cues it down into the pitch

69.5

Watson to Deonarine, no run, punches this outside off, but can't beat the deepish cover

"So I guess the answer to your earlier questions is yes, the Chanders drop is exactly like the Hussey one." Punter, having followed a bit too much of West Indies cricket, I know there is a long way to go

69.6

Watson to Deonarine, no run, length ball outside off, pushed with an open face, to point

N Deonarine    27* (86b 3x4)      SR Watson    7-2-8-0

Watson goes round the stumps. One wide slip, and a silly mid-on in place

71.1

Watson to Deonarine, no run, the new angle nearly does him in, getting an inside edge onto the pad as he pushes forward

71.2

Watson to Deonarine, no run, short of a length, on off, defended back to him

"Do "light metres" weigh a lot less than ordinary metres?" Stuart, I suspect you are on to something here. Apologies for the previous comment

71.3

Watson to Deonarine, no run, length ball, on off, angling in, defended back to him

71.4

Watson to Deonarine, no run, slower ball, middle and leg, defended to leg

71.5

Watson to Deonarine, no run, length ball, on off, defended to cover

71.6

Watson to Deonarine, FOUR, cut away late, past point, and West Indies have been much livelier this session than the last

End of over 72 (4 runs) West Indies 176/4

S Chanderpaul    68* (167b 8x4)      MA Beer    18-9-32-1

72.1

Beer to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, another leading edge for Shiv. He is looking to work this to leg from just outside off, and this time he gets it between cover and cover-point

72.2

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, flighted on off, he is across to defend it

72.3

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, tossed up on off, defended back to him

72.4

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, short of a length, turning in towards top of off, defended back

72.5

Beer to Chanderpaul, FOUR, comes down the track, is beaten in the flight, but goes ahead with a whip, gets a thick inside edge through the vacant backward short leg area

72.6

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, flighted on middle and off, defended to short midwicket

End of over 73 (6 runs) West Indies 182/4

And we have a bit of Warner now

73.1

Warner to Deonarine, no run, and he begins with a superb legbreak and an lbw appeal, which Australia will review. More in hope here. Lovely delivery, though. Dips on him, pitches middle, turns in appreciably, hits the pad first, but is headed down leg. I suspect Clarke knew this was going down leg, but he made this challenge just in case

Another discussion about the light. A slip and a short leg

73.2

Warner to Deonarine, no run, full toss, hits the outside half of the bat, goes to cover

73.3

Warner to Deonarine, SIX, takes full toss of this full toss. Gentle, on the leg, asking to be hit. He is down the track, and lofts this over midwicket

73.4

Warner to Deonarine, no run, half-tracker now, but he doesn't have room, and ends up cutting it to cover

73.5

Warner to Deonarine, no run, length ball outside off, he is forward, and gets outside the line even if he is hit on the pad

73.6

Warner to Deonarine, no run, down the track, not quite to the pitch of it, but drives it to leg off the inside half of the bat

End of over 74 (6 runs) West Indies 188/4

S Chanderpaul    74* (173b 9x4)      MA Beer    19-9-38-1

74.1

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, big shout but turning too much. And Clarke is not wasting another iffy review. Full, outside off, beats Shiv's inside edge, but this is turning a mile, hitting him in front of leg, and is sure to miss

74.2

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, fired down leg, Wade deflects it to short fine, Chanders sends Deo back

74.3

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, flighted outside off, defended off the back foot

3.31pm Play to resume in four minutes. We are aiming to get in 28 more overs before stumps. So that includes a new-ball test

3.11pm "Sid, you were talking about me watching grass grow instead of pain drying a while back. Let's split the difference and watch the grass dry?" Yes Mark Kidger, the grass is all but dry now. The only cover remaining on the ground is the light one covering the pitch.

2.56pm Okay it has stopped raining, and the sun is out again. The covers are damp, so it might take some time and work to get the covers off

2.48pm Another light shower at QPO. That could delay the resumption. And they were just about to take them covers off

2.40pm The sun is out at QPO. They are working on the covers. The tea has been had at some time during the rain interval. So there won't be any session breaks once we resume play. Or so I hope

2.30pm It continues to drizzle at QPO, but it has brightened up there. So there is hope. Meanwhile you can read here how commercial considerations were at play too during that 20-minute delay in the morning.

2.04pm "Technically, metres have no weight...but are rather units of distance. Meters on the other hand..." Weasel, I think that was the point Stuart was making, but I was slow. Anyway, it continues raining, but I am hearing news from our man Dan Brettig in Port Of Spain. That delay in the morning may not be all down to the absence of reviews. Commercial considerations played a part in it too, what with the broadcast and all, we have learned. I'll have the link to the story up with my next update

1.44pm And it has begun to rain. The ground staff rush to protect the square. They are all dressed in raincoats, which suggests they have been expecting this. Australia slow in getting off the field, but off they have to go. "This is Shane's long lost brother Roger Warne, or Warne.R as he appears in score sheets. Let's hope he becomes half as good." Pedantic Dave, Warner is not half bad. I am sure if he devoted as much time to legspin as bowlers to, he could be a specialist leggie. Anyway, now we wait for the rain to stop

So Shiv and Narsinh walk out. New ball due in 5.3 overs. Beer will finish his over now. One slip and a short leg in

74.4

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, flighted on off, defended back to him

74.5

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, tossed up higher, well outside off, kicked away to slip

74.6

Beer to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, turning into the pads, helped away fine, around the corner

End of over 75 (2 runs) West Indies 190/4

Warner to continue

75.1

Warner to Deonarine, no run, length ball on off, turning in, defended off the back foot

75.2

Warner to Deonarine, no run, stretches well forward, Warner gets extra bounce, the ball hits the glove and pad, and dies down

75.3

Warner to Deonarine, no run, flighted outside off, driven well, but can't beat a diving Lyon at cover

75.4

Warner to Deonarine, no run, appeal for lbw, on a length, just outside off, turning back in, a slight inside edge saves him here

75.5

Warner to Deonarine, no run, drags this one down, ND punches but still can't break through that cover field

75.6

Warner to Deonarine, no run, nice flight and dip on this one, defended off the front foot

End of over 76 (maiden) West Indies 190/4

S Chanderpaul    76* (179b 9x4)      MA Beer    20-9-40-1

76.1

Beer to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, turning into the pads, and helped round the corner for another couple. He can keep doing that all day

76.2

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, short of a length, slight extra bounce for him, defended in front of off

76.3

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, flighted well outside off, tries to kick it away, but it is well wide

76.4

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, on a length, just outside off, doesn't turn in, defended to cover

76.5

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, flighted on leg, defended to short leg

76.6

Beer to Chanderpaul, 1 run, turning into the pads, worked to the right of square leg for one

"should Shiv score 83 runs today he will surpass Sir Gary Sobers aggregrate at QPO." Thanks for the update, Ronald

77.1

Warner to Chanderpaul, 1 run, that's a right grubber. Short of a length, outside off, turning in, without leaving the ground. Only Shiv knows how he has kept it out. And only Watson knows how he has managed to misfield this at midwiket

77.2

Warner to Deonarine, 1 run, another one that stays low, but Deonarine has made his mind up to sweep, and sweep he does for a single

77.3

Warner to Chanderpaul, no run, stays back to defend this legbreak back to Warner

77.4

Warner to Chanderpaul, no run, stays low again, but Shiv more in control when keeping this out

77.5

Warner to Chanderpaul, no run, overpitched on middle and leg, whipped to short midwicket

77.6

Warner to Chanderpaul, 1 run, Misses out. Long hop, outside leg, he wants to play this behind square, but the ball is slow, and the bat face is turned by the time it arrives. Hits the back of the bat to go square on the on side

End of over 78 (3 runs) West Indies 196/4

78.1

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, short of a length, bounces about chest high, Shiv keeps it down

78.2

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, full, middle and off, defended back

78.3

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, turning in towards off, blocked to short leg

78.4

Beer to Chanderpaul, SIX, slog-sweep. Shiv goes from block, block, to top gear seamlessly. Gets a full ball, middle and off, and his stance is already open, so he just gets down on a knee, and lofts this over straight midwicket

78.5

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, tossed up well outside off, and kicked away

78.6

Beer to Chanderpaul, no run, looks to turn this towards leg, finds short leg

End of over 79 (6 runs) West Indies 202/4

Hundred for this partnership. Hilfenhaus is back, one over before the new ball is available

79.1

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, no run, short of a length, just outside off, and whoa, it kicks off. Good thing for Deo that this is wide, and easy to leave alone

79.2

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, no run, closer to off now, doesn't misbehave, and is defended to point

79.3

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, no run, this one rears towards the rib, Deo is back and defends this back to him

79.4

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, no run, offcutter now, on a length, on leg, turning towards middle, defended off the back foot

79.5

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, 1 run, tucked away off the hip - more like rib - and he has placed this behind square

79.6

Hilfenhaus to Chanderpaul, FOUR, full and wide, Chanders drives with an open face, through point, and has placed it well wide of sweeper-cover

End of over 80 (5 runs) West Indies 207/4

New ball has been taken as soon as it becomes available. "Both the batsmen were born on Aug 16 and both are of Indian origin. Nice coincidence." Good spot about the birthdays, Robbie G. Pattinson gets the new ball now. Can he bowl with control now?

80.1

Pattinson to Deonarine, no run, starts well enough, stump to stump, short of a length, defended to leg

In his previous spells I saw a lot of sand fly as he approached the wicket. Maybe didn't like the run-up then. Has got a change of ends now. From pavilion End

80.2

Pattinson to Deonarine, 4 leg byes, the line is still awry, though. Gets a bit of swing, but pitched outside leg, straightening, and Deo gets a nice little deflection off the pad

80.3

Pattinson to Deonarine, no run, short of a length, outside off, left alone

80.4

Pattinson to Deonarine, 1 run, too straight again, Deo moves across to work this to fine leg for one

80.5

Pattinson to Chanderpaul, no run, full and swinging, and it really is a modern miracle that Shiv keeps them out with that stance. Leave alone keeping it out, he has driven this square on the on side. Can't beat the man at square leg, though

80.6

Pattinson to Chanderpaul, no run, angled across him, and Shiv pushes well inside the line of it

End of over 81 (5 runs) West Indies 212/4

N Deonarine    40* (114b 4x4 1x6)      BW Hilfenhaus    13-4-29-1

81.1

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, no run, short of a length, on off, swinging in a bit, defended to cover

81.2

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, 1 run, swinging into the pads, clipped away to long leg

81.3

Hilfenhaus to Chanderpaul, no run, full, swinging, aiming for the middle, Shiv defends it off the back foot

81.4

Hilfenhaus to Chanderpaul, no run, short of a length, angling across, inside the line again, even though to the uninitiated it might seem he is beaten

81.5

Hilfenhaus to Chanderpaul, no run, wider this time, and he doesn't play at this one

81.6

Hilfenhaus to Chanderpaul, no run, false stroke. Full, close to off, he drives uppishly with an open face, but it doesn't carry to gully

End of over 82 (1 run) West Indies 213/4

82.1

Pattinson to Deonarine, no run, full, wide, angling further away, and left alone

82.2

Pattinson to Deonarine, no run, half-volley, just outside off, driven to cover-point

82.3

Pattinson to Deonarine, no run, short of a length, on off, angling away, well left

Still a bit of sand coming off as Pattinson approached the wicket in his run-up

82.4

Pattinson to Deonarine, no run, reaches him quicker than expected. He is looking to leave this alone outside off, but the ball hits the bat even before he can withdraw. However, it falls straight into the ground

82.5

Pattinson to Deonarine, 1 run, on his toes to open the face on this shortish delivery, past gully

82.6

Pattinson to Chanderpaul, no run, three appeals from Pattinson for the lbw. It's a good shout as the ball is full and swinging in, but the umpire possibly thinks it's swinging down leg. Yes, it pitched middle and leg, and would have gone on to miss leg

End of over 83 (1 run) West Indies 214/4

N Deonarine    42* (121b 4x4 1x6)      BW Hilfenhaus    14-4-30-1

83.1

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, no run, this time Hilfenhaus swings one down leg, and has Wade in distress

83.2

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, no run, more hard work for Wade as this one is not only down leg, but also falls in front of him

83.3

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, no run, defended off the back foot, pretty straight, and swinging in

83.4

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, no run, short of a length, on off, Deo stays back to defend

83.5

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, FOUR, too straight again, Deo gets inside the line and deflects it fine. Runs flowing since - and just before - the rain break

A short midwicket comes in. Fine leg goes finer, and we get a deep backward square

83.6

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, no run, full outside off, and left alone

End of over 84 (4 runs) West Indies 218/4
N Deonarine    46* (127b 5x4 1x6)      BW Hilfenhaus    15-4-34-1
S Chanderpaul    91* (204b 10x4 1x6)      JL Pattinson    10-2-35-1

84.1

Pattinson to Chanderpaul, 1 run, short of a length, angling across him, squares him up, Shiv opens the face, guides this to third man for one

84.2

Pattinson to Deonarine, no run, wasted delivery well down leg, and I don't see how he could have possibly played this. Should have been called wide

84.3

Pattinson to Deonarine, no run, length ball outside off, left alone after a lunge forward

84.4

Pattinson to Deonarine, no run, full and straight, headed for off, defended off the back foot

84.5

Pattinson to Deonarine, no run, short of a length, well outside leg again, and doesn't even reach the line of leg despite the angle

84.6

Pattinson to Deonarine, FOUR, what a way to get to fifty. Wide half-volley, and he drives it through extra cover to reach fifty. Healthy applause from the balcony. And of course the QPO crowd. Welcome back, Narsinh. He has had to dig in, but has done so successfully

End of over 85 (5 runs) West Indies 223/4
N Deonarine    50* (132b 6x4 1x6)      JL Pattinson    11-2-40-1
S Chanderpaul    92* (205b 10x4 1x6)      BW Hilfenhaus    15-4-34-1

85.1

Hilfenhaus to Chanderpaul, 1 run, short of a length, on middle and leg, nudged away to leg

Okay now short midwicket goes to cover, and deep backward square comes in. Better, more aggressive field

85.2

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, no run, gets this to seam away from around off, left alone

85.3

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, no run, nicely punched away square, but Hussey saves four with a dive at gully

85.4

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, no run, left alone outside off, and it bounces in front of wade again

85.5

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, no run, wide outside off, angling further away, and another leave here

Even Hilfenhaus has not been impressive with the new ball

85.6

Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, FOUR, too straight, swinging down leg, and Narsinh gets inside the line to nudge this to fine leg. He is racing away now

End of over 86 (5 runs) West Indies 228/4
N Deonarine    54* (137b 7x4 1x6)      BW Hilfenhaus    16-4-39-1

Watson replaces Pattinson. About time too

86.1

Watson to Chanderpaul, no run, and for the third time today he begins a spell with a slow delivery, at 119ks, short of a length, middle and off, defended to off

86.2

Watson to Chanderpaul, no run, nicely bowled now. Hits the seam, gets extra bounce from short of a length, and also seam movement away. Shiv follows it, and is beaten

86.3

Watson to Chanderpaul, 1 run, deflects this off middle and leg to get within a hit of a hundred

86.4

Watson to Deonarine, 1 run, short of a length, outside off, punched away square. Deonarine looking really comfortable and confident now

Just one wide slip in place

86.5

Watson to Chanderpaul, no run, length ball, on off, defended to leg

A short midwicket too

86.6

Watson to Chanderpaul, no run, length ball, pitches about a set of stumps wide of off, and is left alone

End of over 87 (2 runs) West Indies 230/4
S Chanderpaul    94* (211b 10x4 1x6)      SR Watson    9-2-14-0
N Deonarine    55* (138b 7x4 1x6)      BW Hilfenhaus    16-4-39-1

Watson is moving gingerly after that over. Another change. Here is Nathan Lyon. Clarke will be disappointed with Pattinson and Hilfenhaus with the second new ball. Just the one slip in

87.1

Lyon to Deonarine, OUT, Lyon has struck first ball. Another bowling change works for Clarke. This is against the run of play, but also perhaps Deonarine got a bit too confident. This is slightly adventurous. He sees a length ball around off, and drives at it. Only to realise the ball is shorter than that, and he can't reach it, thus dragging the back foot out. The ball turns appreciably, and past the bat. Wade is sharp with the stumping despite the extra bounce. A valuable hand from ND, a deserved wicket for Lyon, and a deserved stumping for Wade too, who has dived all over the place yesterday and today

N Deonarine st †Wade b Lyon 55 (175m 139b 7x4 1x6) SR: 39.56

"For 40 overs I was following cricinfo commentary and only after reading that Deonarine is looking comfortable, decided to watch live cricket. Guess what, the first ball was a wicket." Ram, confidence can also sometimes let you drop your guard a bit, and that's what happened with Deonarine. And also, the lesson here is, follow Cricinfo. Carlton Baugh comes in, still ahead of Darren Sammy

87.2

Lyon to Baugh, no run, flighted on middle and off, defended to leg

A slip, a silly point and a short leg now

87.3

Lyon to Baugh, no run, turned away with the spin, in the air, hits the left hand of Cowan at short leg. Some mean person might even call this a drop

87.4

Lyon to Baugh, no run, flighted outside off, defended to cover

87.5

Lyon to Baugh, no run, short of a length, rocks back, defends it against the turn

87.6

Lyon to Baugh, 1 run, short again, Baugh goes back again, and plays against the sharp turn, taking a single to the left of cover

Pattinson goes off the field, holding his back. Peter Forrest will substitute

88.1

Watson to Baugh, no run, Watson is accurate. Short of a length, on off, defended to cover

88.2

Watson to Baugh, no run, length ball, middle and off, Baugh is squared up as he defends

88.3

Watson to Baugh, no run, short, not too wide, left alone

88.4

Watson to Baugh, no run, short of a length, just outside off, opens the face on it, pushing it to point

88.5

Watson to Baugh, no run, fuller, on off, quicker than the previous few deliveries, 131ks, hits the outside half of the bat

89.1

Lyon to Chanderpaul, no run, full, middle and leg, driven to mid-on

89.2

Lyon to Chanderpaul, no run, length ball on off, turning away, defended with an open face

Only one slip near the bat. Apart from the keeper of course. And the stumps

89.3

Lyon to Chanderpaul, no run, left alone outside off, letting it turner further away

89.4

Lyon to Chanderpaul, no run, wider now, and left alone again

89.5

Lyon to Chanderpaul, no run, slower through the air, closer to off, Shiv covers the stumps, and then lets it turn away

89.6

Lyon to Chanderpaul, OUT, Lyon has two in two overs. And there are no reviews left. Not that it would have made a major difference. Shiv has missed out on a century here. Natural variation for Lyon as this one doesn't turn as much as it has been. Shiv presses forward to a length ball on off, plays for the turn, and it turns ever so slightly and hits him plumb in front, beating the inside edge

"we are witnessing a battle of the big cats.....Lyon vs "Tiger"" Kev, Lyon has won this one, although Tiger game the Lyon side a lot of hard time. In walks Sammy, but he is not on strike

90.1

Watson to Baugh, no run, length ball, on off, defended off the outside half of the bat

90.2

Watson to Baugh, no run, this one seams back in, and Watson lets out a big lbw shout. This is short of a length, headed towards off, but gets a big inside edge on the way. Well called Erasmus, because any mistake made against West Indies will not be corrected. They have no reviews left

90.3

Watson to Baugh, no run, length ball on off, defended to cover

"I hope Ram has turned off the TV and come back to cricinfo. We need all the luck to get close to the Australian total!" Yes, Nick Danger, tell everyone you know to come to Cricinfo

90.4

Watson to Baugh, no run, beaten outside off. This seems to have just held its line. Scoots along the ground too

90.5

Watson to Baugh, no run, drives at a short-of-a-length delivery away from his body, but the edge doesn't carry to first slip

90.6

Watson to Baugh, no run, this one moves in the other way, beats the inside edge, hits him in front, but is swinging down to miss the leg stump

"Watching live costed WI 2 wickets. I am back to cricinfo. Everybody hail cricinfo" Thanks Ram. We need you

91.1

Lyon to Sammy, 1 run, sharp turn in, helped away past short leg for one. Sammy off the mark

91.2

Lyon to Baugh, FOUR, wide half-volley, Baugh likes this invitation, and reaches the pitch of it, and drives it square on the off side, along the ground

91.3

Lyon to Baugh, 1 run, stays full again, closer to off, push-drives this wide of mid-off

91.4

Lyon to Sammy, OUT, o captain, my captain. What have you done, Darren Sammy? Three men on the leg-side boundary, and he still takes that field on. Shimmies down the track, not quite to the pitch of it, and ends up lofting it straight down Hussey's throat at long-on. He is disgusted with himself, and keeps shaking his head all the way back

"Re: Ram: Following Cricinfo yielded 3 wickets for Australia in 3 overs and the sun hasn't even risen. Hail Cricinfo!" Of course, William, we keep everyone happy. Three men on the leg-side fence again

"Really poor from Sammy. He is a likeable captain and an able bowler with a good avg, but doing stuff like that is just not on in test cricket where just one bad half hour can cost you the game." Patrick sums up the feeling

Clarke to Baugh, no run, length ball on leg, no major turn, defended back to him

CS Baugh    14* (46b 1x4)      MJ Clarke    1-0-2-0
KAJ Roach    0* (12b)      NM Lyon    26-7-67-4

99.1

Lyon to Roach, OUT, Caught down the leg side. Second Michelle for Lyon in Tests, and what a turnaround. This one is short of a length, and turns sharply across him. Wade doesn't even know he has edged it, but he seems to have done so faintly. Lyon appeals, Ian Gould raises the finger. Roach doesn't look happy, but he has no reviews left. And even on review, this decision would have stayed. Front shot suggests an edge, the side one suggests a touch of the pad. Can't be considered evidence enough t change the decision

KAJ Roach c †Wade b Lyon 0 (19m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Fidel Edwards comes out. The way Shiv and Narsinh were going, he wouldn't have expected to bat tonight. Three men on the leg-side fence for No. 11. Clarke doesn't want any boundaries to slogs
