10.6 to JA Burns, against the run of play. This one sneaks through. Fuller than a good length, and the ball nips back in and there looks like a complacent gap between bat and pad. The ball finds that gap and hits the stumps. Gabriel is pumped. Burns is disbelieving. The extra ball does the trick.. 75/1

Jomel Warrican28115835.648217100
19.3 to SPD Smith, Smith is gone! Another dismissal against the run of play. Slowed up on middle, the ball grips in the pitch a touch and Smith pokes at that, only to get a thick outside edge which is snaffled up at slip. Warrican is delighted, fist-pumping all the way to cover. Good pace on that occasion.. 104/2
23.4 to DA Warner, massive wicket for WI, what a soft dismissal that was. Strangled down leg. Flat on leg, a nothing delivery that to be fair. Warner goes back in his crease and looks to clip to fine leg but gets too close to it and ends up flicking this into Ramdin's gloves. Exactly what WI needed, just before the break.. 121/3
111.1 to SE Marsh, gone! Marsh has picked out deep midwicket. Gets down early on one knee and pummels a slog sweep straight to the fielder at deep midwicket. He gets a couple of congratulatory handshakes from the WI players as he trudges off. Great knock, came in under a bit of pressure and has taken his side to definite safety. 570/4

Josh Hazlewood1854542.50865000
8.3 to KC Brathwaite, close and gone! Looked out immediately, as long as there was no bat. Brathwaite chooses to review. Not a good review, in my opinion. Full on middle and Brathwaite hangs back to one that he should have been forward to. The ball snakes in late and beats his inside edge. Only question is height. Just has to clip the bails for the decision to stand. And just clips the top of the bail and the umpire's call stands. Very late inward movement accounts for Brathwaite, and the patience has paid off. 17/1
30.2 to D Ramdin, and now Ramdin has to go. Very streaky innings from Ramdin. That one kept low but that is poor technique from Ramdin. Plays back to one he should have been forward to, and brings an angled bat down. The ball sneaks through to hit off stump. WI capitulating. Not a back of a length delivery ,was much fuller than that and he should have been on the front foot. Instead, he played from the crease and the ball went through the gap. 89/5
66.5 to KAJ Roach, early wicket for Hazlewood, he bangs it on that good length outside off, like he usually does and Roach naughtily flirts at that and feathers through to Nevill. Early breakthrough for Australia, just what they needed. Played well away from his body there, just enough movement for Hazlewood. 215/7
66.6 to JE Taylor, gone first ball. Things happening all of a sudden. All it took was one ball. Another excellent delivery, good length outside off, nipping back in towards off. Taylor is very tentative and goes for a cut, a thick inside edge clatters into the stumps and that is another for Hazlewood.. 215/8
James Pattinson1506804.53648015
Peter Siddle1553622.40775000
39.3 to JO Holder, given! Massive appeal and umpire Erasmus gives him after a bit of deliberation. Full on off, shaping back in towards off. Holder misses his flick and the ball sneaks through to strike him in front of middle and leg. He decides not to review. Replays show the ball would have missed the stumps, that was high. Unlucky, they did have a review up their sleeves. Hit Holder - a tall bloke - on the knee roll, he has a chat with Bravo and decides against the review. Can things get any worse?. 116/6
69.6 to DM Bravo, gone! Bravo looks for the big shot of the final ball of the over. He tries to go down the ground, but that gentle away shape takes the ball away from Bravo who can only top-edge one to point. Lyon takes a comfortable catch.. 223/9
Nathan Lyon1964332.26926000
19.3 to R Chandrika, drift has done it. Chandrika struggled against the spin and his misery has ended. Tossed up outside off, the ball drifts on and Chandrika goes for the drive. poor shot against the spin, the ball takes the outside edge and Smith takes it after juggling the ball a couple of times. Really good bowling. 58/2
25.1 to MN Samuels, what a catch that is. Stunning stuff from Lyon. Absolutely scintillating reflexes. Tossed up outside off, Samuels goes for the drive and uppishly drives at that to Lyon's left who dives and takes an unbelievable catch high to his left. Really good bowling and Lyon has two. WI in trouble. What kind of a shot was that from MS? Through the shot too early.. 78/3
25.6 to J Blackwood, and another for Lyon. He is in the middle of an amazing spell. Tossed up on a good length outside off and spins in to Blackwood who defends with hard hands, the ball takes the inside edge and a simple catch to short leg. Lyon on fire. Really good bowling, he has mixing up his length and that is ideal. Blackwood is neither forward or back. 78/4

Josh Hazlewood10.333333.14484000
30.5 to KAJ Roach, Roach's misery ends. Short delivery on leg, he goes inside the line and looks to pull. He kept his eyes on it longer but the ball hurries onto him and he can only glove one to Nevill. Good bowling from the quicks, worked him over and I reckon that will be a popular tactic for the rest of the series. 91/7
34.4 to JE Taylor, he is gone this time! Tries a similar shot but can only spoon it to mid-off. Dragged back a touch and the shot is a lot harder to play, he goes through with it anyway and can only lob it up to Pattinson who takes an overhead catch.. 117/8
36.3 to KC Brathwaite, what a shame! An exceptional innings ends, Hazlewood gets through the defense of Brathwaite. May have been a slower ball or one that just shaped back in, Brathwaite is beaten with the swing and the stumps are rattled. The players shake hands and the Test is done, Australia complete a massive win, an innings and 212 runs. 148/9
James Pattinson822753.37383012
1.3 to R Chandrika, Pattinson gets his first. Just what he needed. Just enough movement away from the batsman, excellent stuff. Full again outside off, the ball holds its shape and gets a thick outside edge. Smith takes a good, low diving catch. WI lose one. 2/1
5.6 to DM Bravo, those feet are not to the pitch and that may have resulted in his dismissal now. They check for a no ball, but he is fine. Fullish on off again, the shot was there to play but he doesn't get close enough to the ball, goes through with an expansive drive from the crease and gets a thick inside edge onto the stumps. The form-batsman has to go.. 20/2
7.5 to MN Samuels, gone, Pattinson is one fire. Not sure what Samuels could have done about that though. Fuller than a good length on off, the ball rises off that length and takes the bat handle. The ball lobs to Warner who completes an easy catch. Bending his back a lot more is Pattinson, which may have yielded some extra bounce. Nonetheless, Aus on fire. WI sink further.. 24/3
7.6 to J Blackwood, bowled im. Blackwood is gone, a pair for Blackwood. That one did not bounce as much as Blackwood thought that would. He stayed back to a good length delivery, and in fact, was hopping but the ball keeps low and sneaks through to hit off stump. WI inall sorts of trouble now. He is on a hat-trick as well. 24/4
20.2 to JO Holder, down leg and given! What a way to go, very unlucky for Holder. Not a great delivery, strays down leg, Holder looks to clip and gets a thin inside edge down leg, Nevill collects and umpire Erasmus give sit out. Holder doesn't review again but this time, a bright mark on hotspot so the right decision from all parties. Pattinson has five in his comeback game, great effort this.. 60/6
Peter Siddle713404.85304000
Mitchell Marsh703615.14275001
11.1 to D Ramdin, that counterattacking idea has resulted in Ramdin's dismissal. Too full outside off, but he gets a bit of shape away from the batsman, Ramdin goes for a full-blooded drive and gets a thick outside edge which flies to Warner at gully. Australia are ecstatic, Ramdin trudges off. 30/5
