  • Overs 1-50

Hilfenhaus to Powell, FOUR, Hilfy bowls the one that angles across. Short of a length, and Powell plays for the swing. The thick edge goes between second slip and gully

West Indies 12/1   KOA Powell 11* (11b 1x4)   BW Hilfenhaus 3.3-2-11-1

Lyon to Powell, FOUR, driven uppishly, but through the vacant cover region. Powell is doing his best to not allow Australia dictate to him. Overpitched delivery, and he drives through extra over. Doesn't matter in this case that it has gone at catchable height

West Indies 20/1   KOA Powell 17* (17b 2x4)   NM Lyon 0.3-0-4-0

Beer to Barath, FOUR, driven in the air, but through the gap at cover. Barath pushes forward to this length ball, and drives with an open face. "Catch" is the shout, but he has gone right through the vacant extra cover region

West Indies 26/1   AB Barath 7* (39b 1x4)   MA Beer 6.2-4-8-0

Beer to Bravo, FOUR, disdainfully smashed away. Overpitched outside off, and Bravo lofts this through mid-off. The man there is wide, and he knows he can play this shot

West Indies 32/2   DM Bravo 6* (3b 1x4)   MA Beer 7.1-4-14-1

Beer to Bravo, FOUR, Bravo is in some mood in front of home crowd. Powell has to act in haste to save his head. Beer bowls another half-volley, and Bravo smashes it through where Powell's head would have been had he not gone down

West Indies 38/2   DM Bravo 12* (8b 2x4)   MA Beer 8-4-20-1

Lyon to Bravo, FOUR, this is a proper long hop, and despite sharp turn away from Bravo, he has cut this in front of square, through extra cover

West Indies 60/3   DM Bravo 23* (60b 3x4)   NM Lyon 9.5-4-18-0

Hilfenhaus to Chanderpaul, FOUR, wide length ball again, Shiv walks into the drive, crashing it through cover, all along the ground

West Indies 68/3   S Chanderpaul 13* (46b 1x4)   BW Hilfenhaus 7.5-3-18-1

Hilfenhaus to Bravo, FOUR, lovely punch. Short of a length, just outside off, he goes deep inside the crease, and punches it through cover, with the back arching back a little. You know who he reminds you of at such times

West Indies 73/3   DM Bravo 28* (68b 4x4)   BW Hilfenhaus 8.2-3-22-1

Pattinson to Bravo, FOUR, short, no room, but Bravo is on his toes, and the back arches a little to make room, and then he cuts it at the top of the bounce. Oof, this is some shot

West Indies 77/3   DM Bravo 32* (76b 5x4)   JL Pattinson 3.4-2-10-1

Lyon to Chanderpaul, FOUR, flat, short of a length, Shiv waits and waits before opening the face of the bat, guiding this past point

West Indies 83/3   S Chanderpaul 19* (70b 2x4)   NM Lyon 14.5-5-27-0

Pattinson to Chanderpaul, FOUR, nicely glanced off the hip. Pattinson has struggled for line all through this Test, and allows Chanders an easy four to fine leg

West Indies 88/3   S Chanderpaul 23* (74b 3x4)   JL Pattinson 5.5-2-15-1

Hussey to Chanderpaul, FOUR, too straight, well not straight, down the leg side, and Shiv stays back and plays the bread-and-butter nudge for four to long leg

West Indies 107/4   S Chanderpaul 33* (85b 4x4)   MEK Hussey 2.2-0-14-1

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

West Indies 123/4   N Deonarine 8* (44b 1x4)   NM Lyon 15.2-5-31-0

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

West Indies 127/4   N Deonarine 12* (45b 2x4)   NM Lyon 15.3-5-35-0

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

West Indies 131/4   S Chanderpaul 44* (132b 5x4)   MA Beer 15.1-8-29-1

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

West Indies 141/4   S Chanderpaul 54* (141b 6x4)   JL Pattinson 6.1-2-20-1

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

West Indies 146/4   S Chanderpaul 58* (143b 7x4)   JL Pattinson 6.2-2-25-1

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

West Indies 151/4   S Chanderpaul 62* (144b 8x4)   JL Pattinson 6.2-2-30-1

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

West Indies 165/4   N Deonarine 22* (70b 3x4)   NM Lyon 19.2-5-50-0

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

West Indies 176/4   N Deonarine 31* (92b 4x4)   SR Watson 8-2-12-0

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

West Indies 182/4   S Chanderpaul 74* (172b 9x4)   MA Beer 18.5-9-38-1

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

West Indies 207/4   S Chanderpaul 91* (197b 10x4 1x6)   BW Hilfenhaus 13-4-29-1

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

West Indies 218/4   N Deonarine 46* (126b 5x4 1x6)   BW Hilfenhaus 14.5-4-34-1

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

West Indies 223/4   N Deonarine 50* (132b 6x4 1x6)   JL Pattinson 11-2-40-1

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

West Indies 228/4   N Deonarine 54* (137b 7x4 1x6)   BW Hilfenhaus 16-4-39-1

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

West Indies 236/6   CS Baugh 5* (18b 1x4)   NM Lyon 22.2-6-58-2

Lyon to Shillingford, FOUR, and now Shilly swings. Wide and full delivery, he goes deep in the crease, and swings at this, getting it over cover

West Indies 241/7   S Shillingford 4* (2b 1x4)   NM Lyon 23-6-63-3

Beer to Baugh, FOUR, short and wide, there is a deep point in place, but Baugh has cut this in front of square, and Hilfenhaus, the man at deep point, can't get there

West Indies 257/9   CS Baugh 21* (69b 2x4)   MA Beer 25.3-9-56-1
