Kemar Roach22210424.729316106
35.2 to SR Watson, caught! Watson's gone! Roach pitches the ball on an excellent length around off stump, drawing Watson forward, the batsman tries to defend but the ball seams away a fraction and clips the outside edge, Ramdin takes a comfortable catch. 132/1
125.4 to BJ Haddin, no century again, bit wide outside the off stump and Haddin from the crease feels for the delivery and gets the outside edge through to Ramdin.. 510/6
Ravi Rampaul2268513.8610113011
95.5 to MEK Hussey, Rampaul strikes first on day 2, back of a length delivery angled across and Hussy stands in the crease and nibbles at it and gets an outside edge to Ramdin behind the wicket.. 355/4
Gavin Tonge1818504.727311009
Dwayne Bravo17.417914.47616100
130.4 to MG Johnson, short of a length delivery and Johnson hits in the air down the ground to long off and Benn takes a good catch.. 520/7
Sulieman Benn2848713.101229100
67.2 to SM Katich, caught! Katich goes on 99! He stretches forward, gets down on one knee to play the sweep and connects firmly, but he's hit it in the air, and Roach sees the ball swerving towards him at square leg, he dives to his right and holds the low catch. 260/2
Narsingh Deonarine2347423.21945100
72.3 to MJ Clarke, gone! Clarke can't control himself, tries to come out and take the ball on the full but miscues the aerial shot and picks out Gayle stationed at short midwicket, who steps to his right and cups the ball in front of his face. 277/3
112.4 to MJ North, drives a knee high full toss back to the bowler, he looks as though he actually hit it twice - a disappointing end for North who played very well. Another fifty in this innings without being converted to a hundred. 444/5

Doug Bollinger2037053.50938114
24.1 to CH Gayle, short delivery outside the off stump and Gayle looking for the cut over the in-field, lobs it straight into the hands of Watson at point.. 136/1
46.2 to RR Sarwan, Sarwan falls in the second ball of the day, it was fuller outside the off stump and Sarwan goes for the big booming drive, gets the edge and the ball flies to Hussey at gully.. 214/3
72.6 to DJ Bravo, lovely delivery angled across and Bravo caught in the crease pushes at it and gets the edge to Haddin behind the stumps, a big wicket that, wonderful bowling.. 285/5
80.2 to D Ramdin, bowled him! Pitches and takes the leg stump as Ramdin moves across to play to the onside, misses it completely and the stump is rattled.. 310/9
80.6 to GC Tonge, edge and taken by Haddin diving to his right. Bollinger picks up his fifth wicket, well done. It was a fuller delivery outside the off stump and Tonge goes for the drive and gets the edge.. 312/10
Mitchell Johnson1839225.117718000
33.5 to TM Dowlin, aims to drives and having to reach for it, struggles to keep it down and Hussey takes a neat catch in gully - the end of a very good innings. 175/2
56.4 to N Deonarine, hit in the air and Watson diving forward at short cover takes a good catch inches off the ground. It was a fullish delivery and Deonarine cannot keep the ball along the ground.. 239/4
Clint McKay1434503.21645102
Nathan Hauritz1716633.88751400
75.4 to BP Nash, lovely catch at first slip by Clarke. Tossed up outside the off stump and Nash plays forward and gets the edge to Clarke, who dives to his left and takes the catch inches off the ground, excellent stuff.. 295/6
79.3 to SJ Benn, tossed up wide and Benn once again looking to drag it from way outside the off stump, gets a faint edge and Haddin behind the stumps takes the catch.. 310/7
79.5 to R Rampaul, lovely delivery pitches and extra bounce, goes straight on and the ball takes the edge as he plays at it and Haddin takes the second catch in the over. Rampaul was rooted to the crease.. 310/8

Kemar Roach601813.00262000
44.5 to RT Ponting, short and the Aussie skipper pops it to short leg, right at the body in at his ribs and he is gone - brilliant bowling forces him to play defensively to the man in close. 134/8
Ravi Rampaul612113.50283001
3.2 to SM Katich, plays back and exposes his leg stump, losing it as he tried to glance. Good stuff from the West Indies. 15/1
Gavin Tonge1022812.80463001
16.4 to SR Watson, pitches outside the off stump and nips back in sharply and strikes Watson on the pad as he was looking to play through the onside, a loud appeal and given by umpire Bowden, Watson waits for sometime, checks with Clarke and then calls for a referral, Bowden goes to the third umpire and hawk-eye shows the ball hitting the leg stump. Bowden raises his finger and Watson has to go.. 66/2
Narsingh Deonarine10101.0050000
Dwayne Bravo17.364242.40866010
23.6 to MJ Clarke, edge and taken by Ramdin. Full length delivery and Clarke looking to drive lazily through the off side, gets the outside edge and Ramdin takes a comfortable catch. The plan worked for Bravo, bowling too wide and then getting the ball closer and fuller just outside the off stump.. 81/3
33.5 to MJ North, pushes forward and edges low to Ramdin who takes a blinder diving in front of slip - well the West Indies are still in the hunt here. 109/5
41.6 to MG Johnson, he can't resist a wide one, drives to backward point where a low chance is taken - Nash does what he is paid to do and the West Indies are right in it now.. 125/7
51.3 to NM Hauritz, wide outside the off stump and Hauritz goes after it and gets the edge to Sarwan at first slip. Bravo finishes with 4 wickets for 42 runs.. 150/10
Sulieman Benn1122932.63511100
28.2 to MEK Hussey, tossed up outside the off stump and spins in, Hussey plays forward and the ball takes the pad then on the way up takes the glove and the ball lobs up on the onside and Dowlin at short leg takes the catch.. 89/4
36.2 to BJ Haddin, gets one that spins and bounces away from him, gets a shoulder of the bat to slip who gratefully takes the chance - a big wicket for West Indies, keeping themselves in the game. 117/6
48.4 to CJ McKay, bowling round the wicket and tossed up outside the off stump and McKay looks to go big on the onside and gets a leading edge in the air and to Deonarine at cover.. 146/9

Doug Bollinger20.337133.469411000
8.4 to TM Dowlin, short and he pulls in the air to square leg who is half way to the fence, an easy change to Clarke - disappointing end from a man who batted well in the series. Good bouncer and very bowled by Bollinger. 35/1
80.6 to BP Nash, good length delivery pitches outside the off stump and nips back in, misjudgement from Nash as he lets the ball go and the off stump is knocked back, wonderful bowling from Bollinger.. 245/7
94.3 to KAJ Roach, high drama! Australia have appealed for a caught behind and Roach has been given, he wants a review, it's so marginal, can't really tell if he nicked it or not, replays aren't conclusive and in such cases I think the on-field decision should stay, Roach fended at the ball off the back foot as it angled across him ... the Australians were extremely confident ... Hot Spot shows nothing much ... the wait is long and tense ... and he's been given ... fair call too since there was no evidence either way. 323/10
Mitchell Johnson1656734.18736211
67.5 to DJ Bravo, drives at a wide ball outside off and Hussey holds the edge in the gully. 197/5
85.4 to SJ Benn, once again he looks to go big on the onside, it was short in length and into Benn, cramping him, he somehow hits it high in the air to deep backward square leg and the sub Doropoulus takes the catch, at last.. 279/8
85.6 to R Rampaul, fuller outside the off stump, drives in the air to mid-off and McKay takes the catch.. 279/9
Clint McKay1425614.00586001
75.5 to D Ramdin, gets one to niip back and he plays it on, they can't take that away from him, McKay's first Test wicket and Australia now back right on top in this Test match. 231/6
Shane Watson1453022.14673000
14.1 to CH Gayle, plays back and gets an inside edge onto his upper leg, the ball goes to Haddin who takes the catch and the West Indies skipper is out. 52/2
66.1 to N Deonarine, gets one that he touches onto his pad and it collects the off stump - the end of a magnificent innings of 82, 203 minutes worth a defiance there. Well played - Bravo set to join Nash. 196/4
Nathan Hauritz2376112.651167202
17.6 to RR Sarwan, tries to cut and gets an edge to Haddin and that is a bad shot last ball before Lunch, he could have left that a lived to fight on after the break.. 68/3
