Doug Bollinger2536722.681196104
4.3 to AB Barath, oh well held Hussey! Superb athletic catch at gully by Hussey, who throws himself horizontally to his left and intercepts a loose flash from Barath outside off stump, forced into that shot by the fuller and wide length but failed to keep it down. 26/1
8.4 to CH Gayle, sharp catch from Haddin! Bollinger slips in a bouncer just outside off stump and Gayle goes after it, trying to uppercut it over the slips, but its too close to his body and he snicks it off the shoulder of the bat and Haddin leaps up to his right and plucks it from out of nowhere, it was travelling high and fast but he snapped it. 39/2
Peter Siddle2569213.6811413100
85.1 to DJG Sammy, full length ball, strikes Sammy directly in front of the stumps, hitting middle and leg. Looked absolutely plumb. An appeal from the Australians draws the umpire's finger. After discussing it with his partner, Sammy refers the decision. But it goes against him and Sammy is forced to trudge off the field.. 336/7
Mitchell Johnson26.1310534.0111315010
18.1 to RR Sarwan, caught! full outside off, draws Sarwan into a drive who splices it in the air only as far as Clarke at point who takes a regulation catch. 84/3
104.3 to KAJ Roach, fuller delivery outside the off stump and Roach fends at the delivery from the crease, a loud appeal for a catch and given by umpire Rauf. Roach is not happy with the decision and they have no more referrals. Difficult to tell if there was an edge.. 383/9
124.1 to BP Nash, bowled! good length delivery that sears into the wickets. Nash tries to cut a ball much too close to be cutable, the ball slips into the gap between bat and body and routs the batsman's stumps. 451/10
Nathan Hauritz36511123.081587301
73.2 to DJ Bravo, clean bowled! A corker delivery from Hauritz. The ball pitches outside off and turns spectacularly into off stump, beating the bat on the way.. 273/6
103.1 to SJ Benn, tossed up and Benn comes forward and looks to defend, misses the bat and strikes the pad, a loud appeal and umpire Gould lifts his finger, a referral by Benn, given out, there was no inside edge and that was plumb.. 380/8
Shane Watson1225724.75509100
62.3 to S Chanderpaul, another loose forward prod from Chanders to one pitching closer to off stump, there's a noise before Haddin collects, no reaction from the umpire and we have a review. For the second time involving Chanderpaul, several replays are reviewed and again Hotspot is inconclusive. Is it bat flipping pad? Australia don't look pleased. Second time Chanders has been involved in a caught-behind review. Ponting, who asked for the review, leads the celebrations when the outcome is OUT. Hotspot didn't show anything but the review works for the Australians this time. Chanders is gone for a fighting 62. The bowling change works and a dangerous stand is snapped. This one was far less convincing that the first appeal last session. Chanders shakes his head and walks off. Crucial breakthrough from Watson.. 235/4
62.6 to D Ramdin, two in the over! Watson gets Ramdin with a loose shot to one outside off stump, he tries to push it from the crease off the back foot but gets an inner edge onto the stumps. 239/5

Kemar Roach25.139333.6910980010
71.6 to RT Ponting, a mistimed pull shot, short ball and Ponting on the back foot pulls in the air, a miscued shot straight into the hands of Bravo at midwicket. A big wicket for West Indies.. 233/3
97.5 to MEK Hussey, lovely delivery from Roach, back of a length and angled across, Hussey cuts and gets the edge to Ramdin, who takes the catch at comfortable height. It was a quick delivery and a good wicket for the hard working Roach.. 312/4
125.6 to NM Hauritz, this time Roach gets his short delivery right, a bouncer down the leg side and Hauritz goes for the hook and gets the edge to Ramdin behind the wicket. Roach picks up his third wicket.. 418/8
Ravi Rampaul1415203.71616004
Dwayne Bravo1214303.58494000
Daren Sammy1827914.387411001
117.6 to MG Johnson, caught! pitched short outside off, Johnson tries to cut but miscues, getting a thick outside edge that flies directly to Gayle at a wide second slip who completes the simplest of catches. 377/7
Sulieman Benn53815552.9223111203
48.2 to SR Watson, bowled! Watson rocks back to a quicker straight delivery, trying to pull it through the on side. Had he connected he probably would have brough up his century. Alas for the batsman he missed, playing over the top of it whilst the ball cannoned into the top of middle stump.. 174/1
56.2 to SM Katich, caught at short leg! prods forward to a full flighted delivery, attempting to glance it off the pad, the batsman only manages to pop it up off an inside edge for the close-in fielder who gleefully takes the catch. 193/2
108.2 to MJ North, caught! full flighted delivery has North sweeping, he misses with his intended shot as the ball thuds into his pad and deflects onto his bat in its follow through, popping up in the air for a regulation catch at leg slip. 353/5
114.4 to MJ Clarke, caught! tossed full outside off, Clarke chases it, looking to drive it through the off side but he's much too late on it, he gets a thick top edge that provides a simple catch for the fielder at slip. 370/6
126.6 to PM Siddle, tossed up wide and full outside the off stump and Siddle drives and gets the outside edge to Bravo at gully, Benn picks up his fifth wicket.. 419/9

Mitchell Johnson22110354.688414010
14.5 to RR Sarwan, caught behind! short pitched delivery outside leg, Sarwan tries to hook but only gets a touch on it, keeper Haddin collects with a wonderful diving catch, the Australians appeal and umpire Gould sends Sarwan on his way. 61/2
84.2 to DJ Bravo, Johnson strikes, a fuller delivery and bit wide outside the off stump and Bravo slicing it in the air to Hauritz at gully. He was looking to play it forward of point, the movement away made the ball take the outer half off the bat and go towards gully.. 251/5
84.4 to D Ramdin, a super delivery from Johnson, pitches back of a length and from wide outside the off stump, nips back in and Ramdin is squared up, misses the bat and knocks the top of the off stump, wonderful bowling.. 251/6
92.2 to SJ Benn, short delivery angled across and Benn goes for the pull shot and gets an edge high in the air and Siddle runs in from mid-on and takes a comfortable catch.. 284/8
96.6 to R Rampaul, clean bowled! short of a length delivery has the batsman trying to pull, he swings and misses with the shot as the ball hits the top of off stump. 302/9
Doug Bollinger17.535032.80804003
45.5 to S Chanderpaul, lbw! caught on the crease and struck on the pad by a good length delivery that nips back in, a big shout from the Australians draws the finger from the umpire, the ball struck the batsman in the knee-roll and was probably going on to hit the top of middle or leg. 133/3
89.3 to DJG Sammy, edged and taken by Ponting at second slip, it was fuller and outside the off stump, Sammy flashes once again and this time the ball takes the edge. He was rooted in the crease and he was at sea with Bollinger.. 277/7
99.5 to KAJ Roach, caught! tries to chase a fullish delivery well outside off, flaying wildly at it he gets a top edge which is collected smartly by Ponting at second slip. 317/10

67.4 to BP Nash, bowled by a jaffer! beaten by a superb yorker that the batsman can't get down to in time, beating him into leg stump. Watson turned around to the umpire and it looked as if he was appealing for lbw, but that was unnecessary with the leg bail lying on the ground.. 194/4

22.5 to RT Ponting, bowled! played on! Ponting is back to a length delivery outside off, attempting to cut through the off side, he gets it horribly wrong, managing only a thick bottom edge onto the pitch and into the stumps. 68/2
Sulieman Benn27105101.881367001
Dwayne Bravo1543732.46704001
8.1 to SM Katich, Bravo strikes for West Indies and he gets the early wicket, fuller delivery outside the off stump and Katich drives on the up and Barath at extra cover takes a good catch to his left, excellent effort.. 33/1
47.4 to MEK Hussey, caught behind! done by a beautiful delivery that pitches a good length and just nips off the pitch, Hussey is prodding awkwardly stranded on the crease, he gets an inside edge which is gratefully collected by the keeper who immediately throw the ball up in the air in celebration. 133/4
55.3 to MJ North, caught! North rocks onto the front foot to drive a ball that angles across the left-hander, it's the angle that does him as he gets a thick outside edge that carries to Sarwan at first slip who takes a sharp low catch. 139/5
