Jayden Seales2139514.528411010
3.5 to DA Warner, Chopped on! Seales jumps in delight as Warner walks Gets it fullish and wide, was angling away. Warner reached out and looked to slash it through cover with a horizontal bat. It took the bottom edge and hit leg stump. Warner was compact thus far, this over from Seales hasn't been as tight as the first but he gets the reward. To West Indies' credit, they left cover open and tempted the batter to attempt the aggressive shot.. 9/1
Alzarri Joseph2448303.45997121
Kyle Mayers1523912.60712020
52.1 to UT Khawaja, and gets the breakthrough! With a beauty. Round the wicket, good length around off stump, takes Khawaja's outside. He didn't do much wrong. Lovely piece of bowling. Where has he been?. 151/2

Roston Chase31214004.5110112100
Kraigg Brathwaite12.406525.13335001
118.1 to M Labuschagne, Marnus is distraught as he leaves on the stroke of lunch! He hides his face on the bat handle as Da Silva runs forward after taking a caught behind. That'll be lunch too. Round the wicket, the ball was darted on a length around fifth. Was angling away, Marnus tried to steer it fine but got an edge. Good reflex catch from Da Silva. Marnus raises his bat and acknowledges the appreciation and applause from the crowd while simultaneously shaking his head in disappointment on having gotten out.. 402/3
152.4 to TM Head, dragged on! Oh dear. No century for Head. Was outside off, looking to guide it down to third and takes a bottom edge into the stumps. 598/4

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Mitchell Starc2275132.311044000
57.1 to KR Mayers, through him! Lovely bowling. Australia are making their move. Mayers was all at sea. Good length at off stump, he's late on and the ball skims past the inside edge. 166/3
82.4 to J Blackwood, full, straight, given lbw! But he's called for review almost before the appeal is finished. Has it done too much? Shaped back nicely into the front pad. Pitches in line, and clipping leg stump by the narrowest of margins. That's as borderline as you'll see, but was given on field. 245/5
84.1 to J Da Silva, cleaned up! Trademark Starc. Full, inswing, Da Silva whips across it and is castled. That's a loose stroke so early in an innings. 245/6
Josh Hazlewood2155312.521057002
25.6 to T Chanderpaul, edged, taken at first slip! Hazlewood gets it spot on. Good length just around off stump, makes him play, regulation nick which carries nicely to Warner at shin height. 78/1
Pat Cummins20.273431.671042100
54.2 to KC Brathwaite, what a ball! And that's No. 200 for Cummins. What a ripper for the landmark. Full at off stump, nips enough to beat the edge and takes the top of off stump. Just about the perfect ball. 159/2
96.6 to RL Chase, Cummins spins around for an lbw appeal, and the finger goes up. Cummins has trapped Chase after drinks. Full and skidding in from over the wicket, shoots low and thuds into the back pad below the knee-roll in front of middle. No bat involved and that's so plumb that Chase does not even bother to review. It would have crashed into middle stump. Cummins punches his fist in the air. 282/8
98.2 to AS Joseph, Top-edged into the hands of midwicket. Warner settles under it and sprints back to get ready to open the batting for Australia. Pounded into the middle of the deck, gets high up to the chest, Joseph splices it to Warner. 283/10
Nathan Lyon2236122.771035200
70.6 to JO Holder, Lyon strangles Holder down leg. Caught at leg slip. Lyon switches to round the wicket and pushes one down the leg side. Holder closes his bat-face and prods a catch to Warner who is alert to at leg slip. 209/4
97.4 to KAJ Roach, Lyon strikes immediately after switching his angle of attack. Tossed up slower and wider of off. Throws his bat at ball and slices a thick outside edge that flies to Smith at slip. Sharp catch from Smith. 283/9
Cameron Green1003513.50465004
90.1 to SSJ Brooks, and strikes first ball! Full outside off, lures the drive away from the body and it's a regulation thin nick. Just moved away enough. Ends a solid stay for Brooks after he was hastily brought into the match. 266/7

Kemar Roach723014.28284000
4.1 to UT Khawaja, Roach has Khawaja nicking off. Da Silva takes a juggling catch behind the stumps. Roach gets a length ball to nip away against the angle from round the stumps. Khawaja has an uncertain waft at it and edges it behind. 20/1
Alzarri Joseph1014204.20433101
Jason Holder813904.87255010
Roston Chase603115.16172100
24.6 to DA Warner, Chase provides WI with the breakthrough in the first over after the drinks break. Caught at short leg. Nice and full, angling in, as opposed to turning away from the left-hander. Warner has a firm-handed jab at it and pops it to the right of short leg. Brooks, the concussion sub, stretches out both his hands and takes it smartly. 101/2

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Mitchell Starc2346512.821047000
36.3 to T Chanderpaul, dragged on! Starc does it again. The angle from round the wicket works. Short of a length outside off, Chanderpaul aiming into the off side from the back foot, takes the bottom edge into the timber. 116/1
Josh Hazlewood2285212.361065001
84.2 to J Da Silva, edged and taken! Hazlewood strikes with the second new ball. On a length and veers away outside off against the angle. Da Silva stands tall, jabs at the ball, and presents an outside edge to Khawaja at second slip. 233/7
Nathan Lyon42.51012862.9820515400
41.4 to SSJ Brooks, edged, taken at slip! Lovely bowling. An attacking line outside off, brings him forward, playing with low hands, the nick goes low to Smith's right and he takes it very well. Might have actually come off the glove. Good grab from 'grandad'. 133/2
59.6 to J Blackwood, Labuschagne goes low, sticks out his right hand and snaffles a superb catch at short leg . Another biting offbreak from Lyon with some extra bounce, Blackwood prods at it but can't keep it down. 191/3
67.1 to KR Mayers, edged, taken at slip! That earlier reprieve won't matter. Very nice from Lyon. Tentative from Mayers. Caught on the crease at off stump, didn't really get forward, a regulation edge to Smith to holds it neatly. 207/4
71.4 to KC Brathwaite, gets through! That's the big one. Lyon having a great time. Just outside off, Brathwaite caught between playing forward and back. Grips and spins, quicker at 97kph, might have taken some bottom edge into off stump. Ends a brilliant innings from West Indies' captain. 212/5
110.4 to RL Chase, Starc tears in from deep square, dives forward, and comes out with the ball in both hands. Fine effort in the outfield. Slower through the air on middle and leg, Chase is beaten in flight. He aims midwicket, like he did earlier, but this time he can only drag is squarer. Another five-wicket haul for Lyon. He holds the ball aloft and soaks in the applause from the Sunday crowd. 333/9
110.5 to KAJ Roach, Knocked him over. Lyon finishes it off for Australia with a six-wicket haul. Delightful bowling from Lyon - too good for the No.11. This one slides on, as opposed to turning in, to beat the outside edge and strike the top of off stump. Well done, Lyon. 333/10
Cameron Green1324503.46524002
Marnus Labuschagne20904.5090003
Travis Head812523.12331000
78.2 to JO Holder, similar ball from Head, this time he snags the outside edge, which is well held at first slip. Looped up outside off, drifts away further. Holder chases this one with another big drive. The outside edge evades the gloves of Carey, but Smith clings onto a spectacular catch. He dives across to his left from first slip and grabs it with both hands. He made that catch look ridiculously easy as it flew to his left. 216/6
103.6 to AS Joseph, and he's done it! Head's the man again. This one goes straight on at off stump, Joseph plays inside the line. Relief for Australia. 315/8
