Australia tour of West Indies, 2nd Test: West Indies v Australia at Port of Spain, Apr 15-19, 2012
15,16,17,18,19 April 2012 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100
  • Overs 101-150

Hilfenhaus to Brathwaite, OUT, He is gone. Is that consecutive ducks? Or did he score in the second innings in Barbados? Anyway he is going to review it. This is another beauty. I'll tell you why. He has been beating the outside edge so often that KB is moving far too across to cover that away movement. And here Hilfenhaus slips in an outswinger that starts a touch straighter, and beats the inside edge this time. Pitches middle and leg, and straightens enough to be clipping the leg bail. Aggressive start for Australia

KC Brathwaite lbw b Hilfenhaus 0 (12m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 0/1   AB Barath 0* (12b)   BW Hilfenhaus 1.3-1-0-1

Beer to Barath, OUT, lovely spin bowling. Barath is dead plumb. He has followed that slow teasing spinning delivery up with an arm ball. Barath is caught back. The ball pitches on a length, just outside off, turns in with the arm, and hits him deep inside the crease, in front of off. What was that line? Couldn't get plumber if he was working with pipes

AB Barath lbw b Beer 7 (47m 41b 1x4 0x6) SR: 17.07

West Indies 26/2   KOA Powell 19* (26b 2x4)   MA Beer 6.4-4-8-1

Pattinson to Powell, OUT, And he strikes first ball. What a day for Patto. Nearly gets his new top-score, and then an lbw first ball. Although my gut reaction is, this is pitched outside leg. Powell doesn't review it, though. Slightly short of a length, straightens just a little, and hits him in front of leg. There is every chance this has pitched outside leg, because it hasn't really swung. Powell thinks otherwise. The replays show it to be pitching just outside. Had he reviewed, Powell would have been saved

KOA Powell lbw b Pattinson 19 (45m 33b 2x4 0x6) SR: 57.57

West Indies 38/3   DM Bravo 12* (8b 2x4)   JL Pattinson 0.1-0-0-1

Hussey to Bravo, OUT, Don't shake Clarke's hand, whatever you do, you might turn to gold. He has introduced Hussey before Watson, and lo he has produced the wicket. Lovely delivery. Not sure if it is planned thus, but the end product is a gem. This is shaping up to be an outswinger, pitches short of a length, in front of leg, and then instead of going with the swing, it seams away a little. Bravo is squared up, and is hit on the back leg, in front of middle and off. Bravo reviews it, more in hope than anything, but gets the dreaded marching orders for the second time

DM Bravo lbw b Hussey 38 (119m 94b 5x4 0x6) SR: 40.42

West Indies 100/4   S Chanderpaul 26* (82b 3x4)   MEK Hussey 1.5-0-8-1

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

West Indies 230/5   S Chanderpaul 94* (211b 10x4 1x6)   NM Lyon 20.1-5-52-1

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

S Chanderpaul lbw b Lyon 94 (295m 217b 10x4 1x6) SR: 43.31

West Indies 231/6   CS Baugh 1* (11b)   NM Lyon 22-6-53-2

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

DJG Sammy c Hussey b Lyon 1 (8m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

West Indies 237/7   CS Baugh 6* (19b 1x4)   NM Lyon 22.4-6-59-3

Lyon to Shillingford, OUT, Four in four overs for Lyon. Flatter, quicker, turning in, Shilly is groping forward, gets an inside edge onto the pad, Cowan is full-stretch at short leg to take the catch

S Shillingford c Cowan b Lyon 4 (7m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

West Indies 241/8   CS Baugh 6* (25b 1x4)   NM Lyon 23.3-6-63-4

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

West Indies 249/9   CS Baugh 14* (46b 1x4)   NM Lyon 26.1-7-67-5

Beer to Baugh, OUT, Review already. Baugh is sweeping, which has often led to his demise. This is on a length, pitched in front of leg, straightens, beats the shot, and hits him in front of leg. The projection shows this would have hit the leg stump, and Baugh has to go after having been given not-out originally

CS Baugh lbw b Beer 21 (72m 70b 2x4 0x6) SR: 30.00
