Rampaul to Cowan, OUT, Cowan pads up, and he can now walk off. That's the second time in his seven-Test career that Cowan has been out offering no shot. Length ball, on off, Cowan expects it to go with the angle, but Rav gets it to swing back in, and hits him in front of off. A no-brainer for umpire Tony Hill. Ravi lives up to his reputation for early breakthroughs

EJM Cowan lbw b Rampaul 1 (6m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28

Australia 1/1   DA Warner 0* (1b)   R Rampaul 0.2-0-0-1

Sammy to Watson, OUT, pulled out into the deep and taken! And finally the West Indies strike and Watson goes top-edging a pull, Deonarine came in a few yards off the square rope, taking it going to his right and claiming a straightforward catch

SR Watson c Deonarine b Sammy 41 (157m 120b 3x4 0x6) SR: 34.16

Australia 84/2   DA Warner 32* (112b 3x4)   DJG Sammy 11.5-5-19-1

Shillingford to Warner, OUT, that's Warner's first half-century. And the first time a Dominican has taken a wicket in Dominica. Short, widish, very cuttable, but this one bounces extra, and hits the top half of the bat to lob to cover-point. The first time Warner has reached 50 and not converted into a hundred

DA Warner c Powell b Shillingford 50 (196m 136b 6x4 0x6) SR: 36.76

Australia 105/3   RT Ponting 2* (11b)   S Shillingford 11.3-2-19-1

Shillingford to Ponting, OUT, inside edge and gone! You have to say that was coming with the amount of turn and bounce that is available here. Ponting was a long way forward, the turn took the outside edge and possibly glove, loopin to leg slip who took an easy catch

RT Ponting c Sammy b Shillingford 23 (88m 60b 2x4 0x6) SR: 38.33

Australia 142/4   MJ Clarke 16* (37b)   S Shillingford 18.5-3-44-2

Shillingford to Clarke, OUT, I mentioned more of Shillingford to Clarke and now he's gone caught at short leg once again quick turn, bounce and straight to short leg off the gloves who pouches an easy chance. The home-town boy producing the goods here...

MJ Clarke c Barath b Shillingford 24 (84m 59b 1x4 0x6) SR: 40.67

Australia 157/5   MEK Hussey 7* (24b)   S Shillingford 22.3-5-51-3

Shillingford to Hussey, OUT, this is edged and taken at slip! A fine diving catch from Darren Sammy going to his left but again the bounce providing the gloved deflection and Sammy leap across to take it. Hussey forward to block but the bounce that Shillingford is getting today has sent another Aussie back

MEK Hussey c Sammy b Shillingford 10 (49m 37b 0x4 0x6) SR: 27.02

Australia 164/6   MS Wade 4* (22b)   S Shillingford 25.2-6-55-4

Roach to Harris, OUT, short, hooked at, takes the glove and caught! Another wicket and Harris was late on the stroke and not in control, easy catch for the keeper and the finger goes up straight away

RJ Harris c †Baugh b Roach 4 (14m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 36.36

Australia 169/7   MS Wade 4* (29b)   KAJ Roach 14.2-5-33-1

Roach to Wade, 2 runs, OUT, appeal for a run-out! Wade drove that towards long-off off the front foot and the fielder Brathwaite slid and pulled it back inches before the rope, he threw it to the keeper and Starc was ambling back to his crease without grounding the bat and Baugh quite nonchalantly took the bails off, Starc's foot was in the air when the bail was dislodged, lazy running I'm afraid. The third umpire had to see if Brathwaite pulled the ball back so the boundary was ruled out, overall good stuff from the West Indies

MA Starc run out 35 (77m 55b 1x4 1x6) SR: 63.63

Australia 226/8   MS Wade 24* (83b 3x4)   KAJ Roach 18.2-5-49-1

Shillingford to Wade, OUT, caught at the boundary edge and excellent presence of mind by Bravo! And it's a five-for for Shillingford as well, Wade goes another of his slogs but doesn't get the distance, went flatter to deep midwicket and Bravo caught it, threw it up in the air before going outside the boundary, gets back in the field of play and takes the catch

MS Wade c Bravo b Shillingford 106 (198m 146b 10x4 3x6) SR: 72.60

Australia 328/9   BW Hilfenhaus 19* (58b 1x6)   S Shillingford 42.3-9-119-5

Shillingford to Hilfenhaus, OUT, well make that six for Shillingford! Tossed up generously and Hilfenhaus tries to hoick him away over the on side, misses it and the ball hits the middle stump

BW Hilfenhaus b Shillingford 19 (89m 60b 0x4 1x6) SR: 31.66

Australia 328/10   NM Lyon 0* (0b)   S Shillingford 42.5-9-119-6
