Commentary (Australia innings)

Ayaz Memon tweets, "Oz putting Windies under pressure by declaring 45 runs behind. Some quick wickets would revive this Test...."

3 wickets for Roach after the early burst by Sammy who picked up 2 wickets while Edwards took 2 towards the end. This is a good sporting declaration by Clarke, clearly giving an indication that Australia are still going for victory. However, the question is, do they have enough time to do that? Stay tuned for the reply.

Only Clarke went past the 50-mark in the batsman's slot while the others got starts. However, at 250/7, West Indies were eyeing a big lead but the last 2 wickets added 156 runs! Ryan Harris made a fine unbeaten 68 while Lyon made 40 as the last-wicket pair staged an unbroken stand of 77!

Well, well, well! Australia declare with a deficit of 43! Not the greatest of battign displays by the top order but the middle and lower order have taken them to a decent total.

An overcast afternoon awaits us. West Indies will look to try and get this last wicket as quickly as possible after the break. How many can Australia add?

Day 4, session 2.....

Since the fall of Siddle, Australia have added 116 runs, which has brought the deficit down to 83. It is still a big lead for the Windies but it has been a valuable contribution from the Aussie lower order. Ryan Harris has been the most impressive and he is the second best scorer in this Aussie line up! Roach and Edwards set it up this morning with a couple of quick wickets but Sammy's back problem has prevented him from bowling and that is hurting the hosts. Overall, 118/4 in 37 overs. A good one for Australia. 61 overs left in the day. Join us back at 1710 GMT (2240 IST) for the second session.

West Indies came out firing on all cylinders, removing Hussey in the fourth over of the day and Siddle in the next over, and at 250/7, West Indies were eyeing a massive lead. However, Wade, Harris, Hilfenhaus and Lyon fought it hard, battled the seamers and have played out 3 hours!

A very happy Australian dressing room stands up and applauds the two batsmen. Clarke is standing in the front and looks the happiest. Terrific fightback from the Aussies, after being down and out early in the session.

SECOND NEW BALL HAS BEEN TAKEN.

The players are out in the middle.

WEATHER - It is cloudy but nothing dangerous.

PITCH REPORT - Cracks are getting a little wider. There are some ball marks, right on the edge of the cracks. The footmarks are getting wider too but not getting too much deeper. The ground staff have bashed down the bowlers' footmarks near the landing area. Overall, the batting will get tougher and tougher and there will be plenty of uneven bounce.

David Warner had a chat this morning with Geoff Lawson. On being asked as to how the openers prepare when the last wicket takes a long time to fall, he says that the expectation is there for the wicket to fall but then after a period of time, they await the declaration. Admits that the Aussies knew that the Windies would come out hard at them. On the pitch, he feels that it is still hard but there are certain marks which cause uneven bounce. Praises Sammy for bowling beautifully, especially going across the crease and cutting the ball away. Adds that the batsmen need to be watchful in the second innings and do better. On his bowling, he says that he is taking it seriously and Shane Warne is his idol. Hopes to get more wickets, and that too, not of half-trackers. On the game, he hopes that Wade and Hussey start off well this morning and if Australia are set a target of anything around 250, they will go for it.

Another absorbing day awaits us at Barbados after an intriguing one yesterday. Australia 2 runs away from avoiding the follow-on but given that the last recognized batting pair is at the crease, a wicket early could see the visitors concede a huge lead. Hello and a warm welcome to all for the fourth day's play of the first Test between West Indies and Australia.

Day 4, session 1....

The home side were brilliant with the ball today, led by Sammy and they will look to wrap the innings up tomorrow by taking the second new ball. Australia still trail by 201 runs and will look to keep the deficit to double figures, if possible. That's it from us then! Thanks a lot for tuning in to our coverage and looking forward for your company tomorrow at 1330 GMT (1900 IST) (another early start) for the fourth day's play. Until then, you can check out all the scores from the Indian T20 League by surfing the tabs. On behalf of the commentators and scorers, Adios! Take Care!

The runs were flowing in the morning, but as the day progressed, the batsmen found it hard to score runs. None better than Watson to explain the situation, as he was forced to go into a shell after a good start. Clarke looked the most fluent of the lot and his wicket was the most crucial for the hosts. Hussey is still battling and a strike rate of around 30 shows how hard he has had to work to score his runs. Wade has given him good company but with the bowlers to come after this, West Indies will be eyeing a big lead tomorrow. This is where that knock from Sammy proves to be very critical.

After a good start yesterday, Australia lost both their openers this morning, followed by the run out of Ponting. This happened in the first session and the hosts were well on top. But Watson, Clarke and Hussey steadied things out in the middle to keep the Aussies in the hunt.

Well, it is official. Stumps on Day 3. Ends another good day for West Indies but the last two sessions the Aussies fought hard and have nearly avoided the follow-on.

The umpires are getting together for a chat. The light has deteriorated significantly and yes, they are taking the players off. Meanwhile, it seems like the Windies are sure that it is the end of day's play as they are already starting their stretching exercises. But no official word as of yet....

The players are slowly making their way out to the middle. 38 overs are left in the day and I doubt whether we will get all of those in. Light will definitely play a big factor.

Welcome back for the final session of the day. The conditions have grown pretty overcast with rain lurking around the corner.

Day 3, session 3......

38 overs remaining in the day. One wicket and West Indies will be into the soft underbelly of the Aussie lower order. Join us back at 1900 GMT (0030 IST) for the final session.

67 runs in 28 overs, just goes to show how the pressure was being built by the Windies. 50 more needed to avoid the follow-on. Australia are not out of the woods yet and need to bat well to stay in this Test match. The bowling was good but the batsmen did well with the pitch crumbling.

A better session for Australia. Slow but steady. They lost Watson on the second ball post Lunch but since then, the two Michaels have generated some calmness to the proceedings.

Kemar Roach to start off proceedings after Lunch. 11-0-43-0 so far. Watson to face. All set! Here we go!

Welcome back. A brilliant weather awaits us. West Indies have been the team on top for 7 sessions now. One more good one, especially this one and the Aussies will be in a deep trouble. The visitors would be aware of that and will know that they need to get their heads down and sting partnerships to have a session going their way.

Day 3, session 2......

Australia managed to score 89 runs in this session but West Indies on top with the visitors needing another 117 to avoid the follow-on. Watson and Clarke are looking in good touch but the pitch is breaking up and the batsmen will have their work cut out, especially against Bishoo. Join us back at 1640 GMT (2210 IST) for the second session.

A good session for both sides with West Indies ahead because of the three wickets. Sammy was the man with the golden arm as he removed the two openers in identical fashion. Warner could not convert a good start while Cowan struggled and Ponting was sold a dummy down the river by Watson.

40.6 N Deonarine to Watson, Ooopss....run out chance missed! Landed outside off, Watson pushes it towards point and clearly shouts, "NO." But Clarke keeps on running and is nearly at Watson's end. He runs back and luckily for him, the throw comes pretty late to the bowler which enables Clarke to get in. A frustrated Deonarine throws the ball back. 132/3

40.5 N Deonarine to Watson, Another back foot defense. 132/3

40.4 N Deonarine to Watson, Goes back in his crease to defend. 132/3

35.2 D Bishoo to Clarke, Full on middle, played towards mid-wicket. 124/3

35.1 D Bishoo to Clarke, CLARKE SURVIVES A CAUGHT BEHIND APPEAL. Short outside off, Clarke goes for the pull but misses as it stays low. Baugh collects and leaps up in celebration and appeals for the catch. Clarke shakes his head but umpire Tony Hill raises his finger after a long thought. Clarke immediately goes for the review and replays are not that conclusive. There is some noise though, but not too sure whether it came as the ball passed the bat. The decision takes a long time to come and eventually the on-field call is reversed. 124/3

Australia have scored 60/3 in 20.1 overs this morning. They still need another 146 to avoid the follow-on with 7 wickets in hand. 78 overs remaining in the day.

DRINKS BREAK. West Indies' morning so far. Just conceded 60 runs and picked up 3 wickets. The top order for Australia has got starts but the openers could not convert the same. Watson has been attacking and his team's progress relies on him now.

Ponting is still fuming in the balcony. That is the 15th time he has been dismissed run out in Test matches. Does not help, especially when your neck is on the line.

24.1 D Sammy to Watson, Full on middle, 123.6 kph, flicked behind square leg for a couple. 86/3

Skipper Michael Clarke comes out at number 5, replacing Ponting. Australia need another 166 to avoid the follow-on with 7 wickets in hand.

23.6 F Edwards to Watson, OUT! Ponting is run out! Watson has sold his former skipper a dummy. Full on middle, 138.6 kph, Watson works it behind square leg. The batsmen take the single and Watson sets off for the second. Ponting responds but then Watson sees Brathwaite get to the ball quickly from mid-wicket and stops. Ponting has no option but to go back. Watson then tries to sacrifice his wicket by running but it is too late. Ponting tries to make his crease but cannot. He shoots an angry look towards Watson and trudges off, kicking the ground in frustration. Watson is down on his haunches and is angry with himself. Ponting becomes the first batsman to get out in single figures in this Test match as he departs for 4, AUSTRALIA 84/3! 84/3

23.5 F Edwards to Watson, The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 83/2

23.1 F Edwards to Watson, Good length delivery on middle, solidly defended. 75/2

Fidel Edwards into the attack now. 4-1-14-0 so far. This stand is worth 10 from 16 balls. Australia have scored 31/2 in 13.1 overs this morning. They still need another 175 to avoid the follow-on with 8 wickets in hand.

22.6 D Sammy to Ponting, Full toss outside off, 123.8 kph, Ponting comes forward and steers it straight to gully. 75/2

22.2 D Sammy to R Ponting, Drives it beautifully but straight to cover. 75/2

Michael Holding on air says that Sammy is bowling too well from that Joel Garner End to even think of taking him off. He can keep going.

22.1 D Sammy to Watson, Full on middle, 121.8 kph, worked towards mid-wicket for a single. 75/2

21.6 K Roach to R Ponting, FOUR! A fine counter-attacking shot. Roach bowls this short and down the leg side, 141.3 kph, Ponting has had enough of ducking and pulls it with disdain to the fine leg fence. 9 runs from the over. 74/2

21.5 K Roach to Ponting, Another poor delivery down the leg side, 143.4 kph, ducked under. Not sure his captain wants that kind of a line. 70/2

21.4 K Roach to Ponting, A better bouncer, 140 kph, but still the line is leg stumpish. 70/2

21.3 K Roach to Ponting, Goes for the short ball but it is way down the leg side, 141 kph, left alone. 70/2

Now then, Ponting and Roach had a great battle when these two teams last played each other in Australia. In fact, Roach had even injured Ponting with a barricade of short deliveries and that is precisely from when, Ponting started to struggle against those type of deliveries. Here we go then. I assure you, no love lost between these two.

21.2 K Roach to Watson, Full on middle, 142.1 kph, whipped wide of mid-wicket for a single. 70/2

21.1 K Roach to Watson, FOUR! Classy! Full outside off, 138.7 kph, Watson drives it past a diving cover fielder and gets a boundary! 69/2

20.6 D Sammy to Ponting, Perfect shot but for no runs. Full outside off, 126.3 kph, Ponting comes forward in his trademark style and drives it straight down the ground. Unfortunately for him, it is so straight that it hits the stumps at the non-striker's end! A wicket maiden for Sammy. 65/2

Ravi Rampaul is on the field as a substitute.

20.5 D Sammy to Ponting, Pitched on length outside off, 122.6 kph, pushed towards mid on. 65/2

Ricky Thomas Ponting walks out at number 4, replacing Warner. 13,200 Test runs from 163 matches at an average of 53.44. Australia still need another 185 to avoid the follow-on with 8 wickets in hand. And straight away, short leg comes in.

DRINKS BREAK.

20.2 D Sammy to D Warner, OUT! The ball is legal and Warner has got to go! Terrific delivery from Sammy again. Almost similar to the Cowan wicket. Pitched up outside off, 122 kph, entices Warner into the drive and gets a thick outside edge. The ball travels to Bravo at second slip who makes no mistake. Warner departs for 42, AUSTRALIA 65/2! 65/2

Warner has been caught behind! The umpires are checking for the no ball though.

20.1 D Sammy to Warner, Full outside off, 122.8 kph, Warner thinks about playing at it before withdrawing his bat away. 65/1

17.2 K Roach to Warner, Good length delivery outside off, 137 kph, Warner goes for the cut but gets a bottom edge towards point. 60/1

17.1 K Roach to Warner, That's a good ball. Landed on length outside off, 137.9 kph, Warner feels for it but the ball bounces sharply and goes past the outside edge. Interesting signs for the bowlers here. Very encouraging. 60/1

16.6 D Sammy to Watson, Full outside off, 120.7 kph, driven back to the bowler. 60/1

16.5 D Sammy to Watson, The batsman drives the ball straight down the ground. 60/1

16.4 D Sammy to Watson, SAFE. The umpire's call saves Watson here. Full outside off, 125 kph, Watson shoulders arms but the ball nips back in sharply and hits him on the front pad. Sammy goes for the review after Ian Gould shakes his head on the appeal. Again, Hawk Eye shows the ball clipping the top of the off stump. My colleague over here feels that Watson was saved by about 20 percent. Close call. Could have gone either way. 60/1

Review taken for LBW against Watson! He was given not out.

16.3 D Sammy to Watson, Outside off, 123.6 kph, left alone again. 60/1

16.2 Sammy to Watson, Huge appeal for LBW, turned down. Good length delivery outside off, 124.9 kph, Watson looks to flick but misses and is hit high on the pads. Sammy thinks about the review but does not take it. The Hawk Eye shows the ball clipping the top of the stumps. 60/1

13.1 K Roach to Warner, Beaten! Yes, that is the line and length, full outside off, nipping back in, 137.1 kph, Warner feels for it and is beaten. The Windies have been far better than yesterday this morning. 50/1

12.6 D Sammy to Watson, Outside off, Watson gets a big stride forward and pushes it to cover. Some confusion in the running and eventually they do not take it. A wicket maiden for Sammy. In fact, he is yet to concede a run so far. 50/1

12.5 D Sammy to Watson, Half volley on the pads, 122.5 kph, flicked straight to square leg. That's an opprtunity missed by Watson. 50/1

12.4 D Sammy to Watson, Full on middle, 124.2 kph, solidly defended. 50/1

Shane Watson walks in at number 3, replacing Cowan. Australia need another 200 runs to avoid the follow-on with 9 wickets in hand.

12.3 D Sammy to Cowan, OUT! Caught behind! Sammy gets the breakthrough! He may not be the most lethal but he is very, very effective! Full outside off, good angle, 125.4 kph, Cowan lunges at it and gets a thick outside edge to Baugh. Sammy has been hitting consistent areas this morning and he has been rewarded. Another failure for Cowan, he departs for 14, AUSTRALIA 50/1! 50/1

12.2 D Sammy to Cowan, On a good length this time, 126.2 kph, Cowan watches it go past. 50/0

11.2 K Roach to Cowan, Better line, full outside off, 134.9 kph, coming back in, left alone. 45/0

10.4 D Sammy to Cowan, Back to leaving balls outside off. 44/0

Interesting. Darren Sammy to bowl now.

9.6 K Roach to Warner, Good length delivery but again, wide outside off, 135.3 kph, nice carry, left alone. 44/0

Okay....Cowan and Warner stride out to the middle followed by the Windies players. A total of 98.1 overs to be bowled today, that extra delivery is the pending one from Kemar Roach's over. Warner is ready to face. All set! Here we go!

The West Indies sqaud get their photograph taken in coloured clothes. (Wonder why when we are playing in white clothing).

PITCH REPORT - Geoff Lawson says that the clouds have been a little darker than the previous two days. On the pitch, he says that it is looking harder and harder. There are some footmarks outside the off stump to a left hander and with Australia having 4 of them, the marks could be the greatest ally to Devendra Bishoo. But otherwise, he reckons that the track still looks a good one to bat on and the bowlers will have their work cut out.

WEATHER REPORT - There are a few dark clouds approaching but as of now, play will start on time.

Chanderpaul says that scoring against Australia is always difficult and they made it even more difficult for him. Hence this hundred is right up there. On batting with the lower order, he says that you need to trust them to get the job done for you. Admits that it plays on the mind when the last three players are remaining but you have got to trust them. Says that as a cricketer you want to achieve and get past records and this particular one of becoming the leading run-getter at this venue was in his mind. Is happy to have achieved that and hopes to continue for a couple of more years.

Hello and a warm welcome to the third day's play of the first Test between West Indies and Australia at Barbados! Chanderpaul took the Windies to a terrific position yesterday with his century and the Aussies have responded in a positive fashion. They will look to continue the same approach while the hosts would look to bowl in better areas than yesterday. Hope we get a good and full day's play.

Day 3, session 1......

Play starts early again on Day 3, at 1330 GMT (1900 IST). Thanks a lot for tuning in and looking foward for your company tomorrow. Until then, you can surf the tabs for the action from the Indian T20 league. Adios! Take Care!

A good finish to the day for the Aussies then. They have been on the receiving end for most of this Test match and they will feel better to have ended this day on a good note. They have raced to 44/0 and need another 206 to avoid the follow-on. The Windies were quick but their lines were pretty poor. They were too short and wide and will look to rectify it tomorrow.

Good scenes out there. The Windies are in a huddle and now Shane Watson comes out to have a chat with Darren Sammy. Asks him about his health after he got hit on the helmet off Watson's bouncer. The players look in good spirits and Sammy and Watson exchange smiles. Good to see in this era of sledging.

The light has deteriorated pretty quickly and the umpires are taking the players off. STUMPS ON DAY 2!

9.5 K Roach to Warner, Short outside off, Warner goes across to pull and ends up lapping it towards mid on. 44/0

9.4 K Roach to Cowan, Fuller and wider outside off, 136.6 kph, Cowan drives it towards point for a single. 44/0

9.3 K Roach to Cowan, Good length delivery outside off, 139.7 kph, Cowan goes for the cut but gets a bottom edge which goes on the bounce to the slip cordon. 43/0

9.2 K Roach to Cowan, The batsman chooses to leave the ball outside his off stump. 43/0

9.1 K Roach to Cowan, Short outside off, 139.9 kph, cut straight to point. 43/0

8.6 D Bishoo to Warner, FOUR! Hammered! Bishoo drags that one short and Warner pulls it through mid-wicket for a boundary. 8 runs from the opening over of spin. 43/0

8.5 D Bishoo to Warner, The batsman defends it from within the crease. 39/0

8.4 D Bishoo to Warner, A carbon copy of what happened on the previous ball. The length, the line, the shot, the area to which the ball went and the fielding which included the dive as well. The only difference was the pace - 86.9 kph. 39/0

8.3 D Bishoo to Warner, Short on middle, 82.1 kph, Warner goes back and punches it towards cover where the fielder dives to his right to stop the ball. 39/0

8.2 D Bishoo to Warner, Oohhh....full on middle, 83.5 kph, Warner comes forward to defend but gets a thick outside edge which goes past Sammy at slip to third man. Two runs taken. 39/0

8.1 D Bishoo to Warner, Starts off with a short delivery outside off, 85 kph, Warner pounces on it and cuts it through the covers for a couple. 37/0

Time for spin. Devendra Bishoo to bowl. 39 Test wickets at an average of 36.23. Australia trail by 414 runs with all wickets intact which implies that they need 215 more to avoid the follow-on. 8 overs left in the day. Doubt we will get that.

7.6 K Roach to Ed Cowan, FOUR! Well played. Landed on length outside off, 141.9 kph, angling in, Cowan guides it deftly behind point for a boundary. Steady start this for Australia. 35/0

7.5 K Roach to Cowan, Closer to the off stump and quicker, 141 kph, a cautious Cowan watches it closely and lets it through. 31/0

7.4 K Roach to Cowan, Fuller and wider outside off, left alone. 31/0

7.3 K Roach to Cowan, Good length delivery on middle, 136.2 kph, solidly defended. 31/0

7.2 K Roach to Cowan, The batsman lets the ball go outside his off stump. 31/0

7.1 K Roach to Warner, Short outside off, 141.3 kph, punched through the covers for a single. 31/0

6.6 F Edwards to Warner, Pushes the ball through the covers for a single. 7 runs from the over. 30/0

6.5 F Edwards to Warner, Wide outside off stump, 142.9 kph, the batsman leaves it alone. 29/0

6.4 F Edwards to D Warner, FOUR! Not very pretty looking but effective. Short outside off, 145 kph, Warner goes for the pull but it comes on to him a touch quicker and he mistimes it. But it beats mid on to the ropes. 29/0

6.3 F Edwards to Warner, Short outside off, Warner punches it towards cover. Barath gets across from mid off and dives but fumbles and the batsmen come back for the second. 25/0

6.2 F Edwards to Warner, Goes back in his crease again to block. 23/0

6.1 F Edwards to Warner, Full outside off, 144.8 kph, Warner hops back in his crease to defend. 23/0

5.6 K Roach to Ed Cowan, FOUR! Fetch that! Too short on middle, 140.3 kph, Cowan gets into position quickly and pulls it all along the ground through mid-wicket for a boundary. 23/0

5.5 K Roach to Cowan, Another leave outside the off stump. 19/0

5.4 K Roach to Cowan, Action replay of the previous delivery. 19/0

Peter Siddle is ready to do the night-watchman duties, should he be needed. Watson is padded up as well.

5.3 K Roach to Cowan, Wider outside off, 141 kph, left alone again. 19/0

5.2 K Roach to Cowan, Outside off, 142.4 kph, left alone. 19/0

5.1 K Roach to Cowan, Good length delivery outside off, 140.2 kph, Cowan goes for the cut but gets a bottom edge on the bounce towards point. 19/0

4.6 F Edwards to Warner, Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 19/0

4.5 F Edwards to Warner, Way down the leg side, left alone. 19/0

4.4 Edwards to Warner, Appeals for LBW and a catch, both turned down. Fiery delivery on leg, 146.1 kph, Warner is caught in his crease and the ball goes off his thighs towards the slips. 19/0

4.3 F Edwards to Warner, Slashes hard and misses outside off. 19/0

4.2 F Edwards to D Warner, FOUR! Beauty! Edwards fires this on a fuller length, 144.2 kph, but wide outside off. Warner reaches out and drives it through the covers. 19/0

4.1 F Edwards to Warner, The openers are trying their best to keep the slip cordon intersted. Another wide delivery outside off, 144.4 kph, Warner misses out with his attempted cut. Clearly, the definition of Test cricket is different for these batsmen than what the others would feel. Ideally, play till close should be the idea. However, it seems to be the opposite for these two left-handers. 15/0

3.6 K Roach to Cowan, There you go again, good length delivery outside off, 144 kph, Cowan cuts it straight to point. 15/0

3.5 K Roach to Cowan, Slash and a miss again. Good length delivery wide outside off, moving away with the angle, 144.5 kph, Cowan flashes hard but misses. Already, in these 4 overs, the Aussie openers have played an array of shots which seems to be more than what the Windies played in their whole innings. The only difference is, there is hardly any connection between bat and ball. 15/0

3.4 K Roach to Ed Cowan, This is short outside off, 144.7 kph, Cowan latches on to the pull shot but mistimes it towards mid on. 15/0

3.3 K Roach to Cowan, Fuller and wider outside off, 141.6 kph, left alone again. 15/0

3.2 K Roach to Cowan, Good length delivery outside off, 144.4 kph, left alone. 15/0

3.1 K Roach to Warner, Full outside off, 142.7 kph, Warner drives it nicely but straight to Barath at cover who gets down to his right to stop but fumbles. Concedes a single. 15/0

Some sawdust is being sprinkled near the bowler's landing area.

Shane Watson is padded up. Michael Clarke, Mickey Arthur and the support staff are sharing a joke. Smiles all around.

2.6 F Edwards to Cowan, Full and down the leg side, 142.3 kph, Cowan fails to connect. "AAARRRRGGHHGHHH!" is the cry from Cowan for missing out. That should have been put away. Fine leg was pretty square. 14/0

Edwards coming around the wicket now.

2.5 F Edwards to Warner, Good length delivery outside off, 144.2 kph, punched through the covers for a single. 14/0

2.4 F Edwards to Warner, Full outside off, 145 kph, pretty wide, this time Warner is not tempted and lets it go. 13/0

2.3 F Edwards to Warner, Full on middle, swings back in pretty late, 145.6 kph, Warner tucks it through mid-wicket and charges back for the second. 13/0

2.2 F Edwards to Warner, Slips this down the leg side, 144.7 kph, Warner cannot connect with his flick. 11/0

2.1 F Edwards to Warner, Good length delivery outside off, 146 kph, Warner flashes but misses. 11/0

1.6 K Roach to Cowan, FOUR! He gets it away! Not in control by any means. Good length delivery outside off, 140.8 kph, Cowan pushes at it away from his body and hits it in the air, but past backward point to third man. Roach won't mind that. 7 runs from the over. 11/0

1.5 K Roach to Cowan, Short and wide outside off, 145.2 kph, Cowan goes after it and has a wild slash, only to miss. Not too sure about this flashy approach from the batsmen. So early into the innings. That too, at this hour of the day. 7/0

1.4 K Roach to Cowan, Comes forward and plays it towards point. 7/0

1.3 K Roach to Warner, Good length delivery on middle, worked through square leg for a single. 7/0

1.2 K Roach to Warner, Now, how do I describe that shot? Not the best on display. Short outside off, 141.1 kph, Warner gets into position quickly for the pull but gets a bottom edge which goes past mid off. Kirk Edwards chases it down from mid off and slides near the ropes to pull it back. Two runs taken. 6/0

1.1 K Roach to Warner, Full and wide outside off, 142.9 kph, a loosener one suspects, at least I suspect, Warner lets it go. 4/0

It will be Kemar Roach to bowl from the other end. Australia trail by 445 runs with all wickets intact which implies that they need 246 more to avoid the follow-on.

0.6 F Edwards to Cowan, FOUR LEG BYES. Bowls this down the leg side, 143.1 kph, Cowan falls over in the process of flicking it away but misses. The ball goes off his pads towards the fine leg fence. 4/0

0.5 F Edwards to Cowan, Landed outside off, 144.2 kph, pushed straight to point again. 0/0

0.4 F Edwards to Cowan, Good length delivery outside off, 143.7 kph, pushed towards point. 0/0

Commentary (West Indies innings)

Around 16 overs left in the day. A tricky time for the Aussie batsmen. The first target for the openers would be to see off the new ball tonight and go to stumps undefeated.

Excellent performance by all the batsmen, right down till number 11, led by Chanderpaul's unbeaten 103. Backed up by half centuries from Kirk Edwards, Brathwaite and Bravo. But the key was the partnerships formed in the process. Australia had to toil really hard and the fielders did not support their bowlers. 2 wickets for Harris and 2 for Warner.

AND WEST INDIES DECLARE ON 449/9! The supporters, who were getting frustrated, finally bring a smile on their faces. An excellent batting display by this resurgent side.

152.6 M Hussey to Bishoo, Length delivery on middle, 118.3 kph, worked through mid-wicket for a single. 449/9

Michael Hussey coms back into the attack. 1-0-3-0 so far. This stand is worth 25 from 69 balls. West Indies have scored 56/2 in 19 overs since Tea. 19 overs left in the day.

Ayaz Memon tweets, "Oz putting Windies under pressure by declaring 45 runs behind. Some quick wickets would revive this Test...."

3 wickets for Roach after the early burst by Sammy who picked up 2 wickets while Edwards took 2 towards the end. This is a good sporting declaration by Clarke, clearly giving an indication that Australia are still going for victory. However, the question is, do they have enough time to do that? Stay tuned for the reply.

Only Clarke went past the 50-mark in the batsman's slot while the others got starts. However, at 250/7, West Indies were eyeing a big lead but the last 2 wickets added 156 runs! Ryan Harris made a fine unbeaten 68 while Lyon made 40 as the last-wicket pair staged an unbroken stand of 77!

Well, well, well! Australia declare with a deficit of 43! Not the greatest of battign displays by the top order but the middle and lower order have taken them to a decent total.

144.6 F Edwards to R Harris, Pushes it towards mid on. And AUSTRALIA HAVE DECLARED! 406/9

144.5 F Edwards to Harris, Another drive towards mid off. 406/9

DRINKS BREAK.

144.6 Ben Hilfenhaus to D Bishoo, Good length delivery on middle, 136.2 kph, Bishoo hops to defend but gets a thick outside edge which lands in between the two slips and goes through. The batsmen do not run. Two maidens on the trot. 426/9

The players are out in the middle. Ryan Harris to start off proceedings with the ball. Kraigg Brathwaite and Adrian Barath are the openers. Barath to face. Three slips in place. All set! Here we go!

TOSS - Darren Sammy spins the coin and Michael Clarke calls Tails. Heads it is. WEST INDIES WILL BAT. Sammy says that he wants to make use of the excellent batting conditions and put forth a good total. Informs that Rampaul has been left out. Wants his side to show some maturity and do the job for the West Indies. Agrees that it was a good performance in the limited overs and hopes to transfer the 'never-say-die-attitude' into the Tests. Clarke says that the wicket looks fantastic. Would have batted first as well. Feels that the wicket in Barbados has good bounce but now wants his bowlers to get a good start today. Informs that James Pattinson has been left out. Ryan Harris, Ben Hilfenhaus and Peter Siddle are the three fast bowlers and Nathan Lyon is the spinner. Is not surprised that West Indies gace the Aussies a run for their money in the limited version and expects nothing less in the Tests. Tony Cozier asks what would Clarke have done had he done the toss and the skipper replies saying that he would have batted first. Actually, that is the first sentence he said when he was being interviewed.

PITCH REPORT - Typical Barbados pitch. Good bounce, but apart from that, nothing much for the bowlers. Looks hard. A bat first track. Could break up as the game progresses. No grass whatsoever.

WEATHER REPORT - There were heavy predictions and they still are for this Test but as of now, it is sunny...well almost. There are a few rain clouds lurking.

Hello and a warm welcome to the opening day of the first Test between West Indies and Australia at Barbados! The shorter versions saw a close contest between two inexperienced sides and it is now time for some real testing action. Some veterans are back for both sides. Will the Test series be equally riveting? Let's hope so. Sit back and enjoy as the action unfolds!

Day 2, session 3....

An excellent session for the hosts again. 99/2 in 27.3 overs. Every batsman so far has got into double figures and Australia have simply struggled to pick up wickets. All the regular bowlers picked up wickets but Lyon has been disappointing. The score is close to 400 now and the hosts might look to have some fun in the final session. Chanderpaul is itching close to his hundred as well. Join us back at 1900 GMT (0030 IST) for the final session of the day. 38 overs left.

An overcast afternoon awaits us. West Indies will look to try and get this last wicket as quickly as possible after the break. How many can Australia add?

Day 4, session 2.....

Since the fall of Siddle, Australia have added 116 runs, which has brought the deficit down to 83. It is still a big lead for the Windies but it has been a valuable contribution from the Aussie lower order. Ryan Harris has been the most impressive and he is the second best scorer in this Aussie line up! Roach and Edwards set it up this morning with a couple of quick wickets but Sammy's back problem has prevented him from bowling and that is hurting the hosts. Overall, 118/4 in 37 overs. A good one for Australia. 61 overs left in the day. Join us back at 1710 GMT (2240 IST) for the second session.

West Indies came out firing on all cylinders, removing Hussey in the fourth over of the day and Siddle in the next over, and at 250/7, West Indies were eyeing a massive lead. However, Wade, Harris, Hilfenhaus and Lyon fought it hard, battled the seamers and have played out 3 hours!

A very happy Australian dressing room stands up and applauds the two batsmen. Clarke is standing in the front and looks the happiest. Terrific fightback from the Aussies, after being down and out early in the session.

Day 2, session 2....

West Indies are now in a very strong position and will look to consolidate in the second session. Australia, on the other hand, will look to get through the lower order quickly and try and restrict the Windies to under 350. Join us back after the break.

A fine morning session for the Windies. 112 runs in 32.3 overs for the loss of Bravo and Deonarine. They could have lost a few more, but they survived a few outside edges which eluded the fielders and a catch was put down as well. Australia are looking battered out there, even though it has not been a thrashing. But they have been very unlucky and the frustration has come out in their bowling and fielding.

The players are walking off now. The drizzle has returned and though it isn't that heavy, the umpires are taking the players off. In fact, as I type this, the drizzle is already gone. Early Lunch has been taken.

WEATHER - It is cloudy but nothing dangerous.

PITCH REPORT - Cracks are getting a little wider. There are some ball marks, right on the edge of the cracks. The footmarks are getting wider too but not getting too much deeper. The ground staff have bashed down the bowlers' footmarks near the landing area. Overall, the batting will get tougher and tougher and there will be plenty of uneven bounce.

David Warner had a chat this morning with Geoff Lawson. On being asked as to how the openers prepare when the last wicket takes a long time to fall, he says that the expectation is there for the wicket to fall but then after a period of time, they await the declaration. Admits that the Aussies knew that the Windies would come out hard at them. On the pitch, he feels that it is still hard but there are certain marks which cause uneven bounce. Praises Sammy for bowling beautifully, especially going across the crease and cutting the ball away. Adds that the batsmen need to be watchful in the second innings and do better. On his bowling, he says that he is taking it seriously and Shane Warne is his idol. Hopes to get more wickets, and that too, not of half-trackers. On the game, he hopes that Wade and Hussey start off well this morning and if Australia are set a target of anything around 250, they will go for it.

Another absorbing day awaits us at Barbados after an intriguing one yesterday. Australia 2 runs away from avoiding the follow-on but given that the last recognized batting pair is at the crease, a wicket early could see the visitors concede a huge lead. Hello and a warm welcome to all for the fourth day's play of the first Test between West Indies and Australia.

Day 4, session 1....

The home side were brilliant with the ball today, led by Sammy and they will look to wrap the innings up tomorrow by taking the second new ball. Australia still trail by 201 runs and will look to keep the deficit to double figures, if possible. That's it from us then! Thanks a lot for tuning in to our coverage and looking forward for your company tomorrow at 1330 GMT (1900 IST) (another early start) for the fourth day's play. Until then, you can check out all the scores from the Indian T20 League by surfing the tabs. On behalf of the commentators and scorers, Adios! Take Care!

The runs were flowing in the morning, but as the day progressed, the batsmen found it hard to score runs. None better than Watson to explain the situation, as he was forced to go into a shell after a good start. Clarke looked the most fluent of the lot and his wicket was the most crucial for the hosts. Hussey is still battling and a strike rate of around 30 shows how hard he has had to work to score his runs. Wade has given him good company but with the bowlers to come after this, West Indies will be eyeing a big lead tomorrow. This is where that knock from Sammy proves to be very critical.

After a good start yesterday, Australia lost both their openers this morning, followed by the run out of Ponting. This happened in the first session and the hosts were well on top. But Watson, Clarke and Hussey steadied things out in the middle to keep the Aussies in the hunt.

Well, it is official. Stumps on Day 3. Ends another good day for West Indies but the last two sessions the Aussies fought hard and have nearly avoided the follow-on.

The umpires are getting together for a chat. The light has deteriorated significantly and yes, they are taking the players off. Meanwhile, it seems like the Windies are sure that it is the end of day's play as they are already starting their stretching exercises. But no official word as of yet....

Beautifully flighted outside off, 78.5 kph, Clarke comes down the track and looks to go over the infield but makes a big mistake of going against the breeze.

PITCH REPORT - Geoff Lawson says that there were a few rain drops this morning, which is not ideal for the already wearing out pitch. Feels that the footmarks created by the landing of the fast bowlers will assist the spinners and left-handed batsmen will find it difficult and will only get worse as the game goes on. But also says that it looks a good batting pitch for days 2 and 3.

Kraigg Brathwaite and Kirk Edwards are having a chat with Tony Cozier. Edwards says that he is proud to have played well yesterday and hopes that the team does well today too. Feels that the pitch is a touch slow but if the batsmen apply themselves, they can get a good score. Adds that partnerships are the key. Brathwaite says that the new ball came on pretty well onto the bat but as it gold older and softer, it was difficult to score. Against the spinner, he says that the ball pops off the pitch off the rough. On his slow scoring, he says that staying at the crease is important. Edwards says that it a terrible feeling to get out in the 60s after such a good start. Feels that 400-450 would be ideal for the Windies.

Hello and a warm welcome to the second day's play between West Indies and Australia at Barbados! After play was called off early yesterday due to rain, we have a better weather today. Though, a touch cloudy, but play will start at the scheduled 30 minutes before the regular start. It was a good day for the home side yesterday, though they were a bit slow. Will look to score a touch quickly today. Australia were not at their best in the field and will aim to do better today, getting the remaining 7 wickets without giving away too many runs.

Day 2, session 1....

That's it from us then! Thanks a lot for tuning in to our coverage and looking forward for your company tomorrow at 1330 GMT (1900 IST), i.e., half an hour early for the second day's play. Until then, you can catch all the action from the Indian T20 league. On behalf of the commentators and scorers, Adios! Take Care!

But the visitors will be pleased with the fact that they have not allowed the Windies to get away with the game. Bravo and Chanderpaul are looking good in the middle and the Windies will hope that the middle order makes use of the platform set up by the top order. Australia will need to improve on their performance from today and try and get the remaining wickets without conceding too many runs.

So that ends what can be called a pretty good day for the Windies. They batted with purpose with the top order getting starts but none of the top three batsmen could get a big score. Australia, on the other hand, were pretty ordinary in the field and to some extent, with the ball too.

Cricket Australia has just tweeted, "Play has been called off for day one due to rain. Day two will start 30mins earlier."

Unfortunately, the clouds have opened up and the drizzle has got heavier. Covers are in place now. Not quite sure whether we will have any more play today. Fingers crossed. MATCH DELAYED BY RAIN....

DRINKS BREAK. Attritional cricket continues. Australia have done well to not let things drift, conceding just 21 runs in 14 overs since Tea, with the wicket of Brathwaite, But credit to the Windies for holding the Aussies off. 17 overs left in the day. Not quite sure whether we will get them all.

Devendra Bishoo to start off proceedings after Tea. 17-2-50-0 so far. Hussey to face. All set! Here we go!

The players are slowly making their way out to the middle. 38 overs are left in the day and I doubt whether we will get all of those in. Light will definitely play a big factor.

Welcome back for the final session of the day. The conditions have grown pretty overcast with rain lurking around the corner.

Day 3, session 3......

38 overs remaining in the day. One wicket and West Indies will be into the soft underbelly of the Aussie lower order. Join us back at 1900 GMT (0030 IST) for the final session.

67 runs in 28 overs, just goes to show how the pressure was being built by the Windies. 50 more needed to avoid the follow-on. Australia are not out of the woods yet and need to bat well to stay in this Test match. The bowling was good but the batsmen did well with the pitch crumbling.

A better session for Australia. Slow but steady. They lost Watson on the second ball post Lunch but since then, the two Michaels have generated some calmness to the proceedings.

Lands it on length outside off, 131.6 kph, gets it to move away a fraction, Brathwaite nibbles at it and gets a thin outside edge. Wade gets an easy catch as his first Test one and the Aussies celebrate. But Brathwaite does not move and now the players appeal and the umpire's finger goes up.

Welcome back to a very heavily overcast Kensington Oval, Barbados. It has gone pretty dark out there but play will start on time. Ryan Harris to start off proceedings. Brathwaite to face.

Day 1, session 3.....

31 overs left in the day. Can Australia pick up a couple of wickets towards the close? A decent session will take the Windies to around 250 by the end of the day. Join us back at 2100 GMT (0230 IST) for the final session.

It took a freakish delivery to earn a wicket for the Aussies and Edwards would be rueing his missed opportunity. Brathwaite has held one end up, steady but flashy in between, but has been lucky too, with catches going down of his bat's edges. Bravo looks good and positive. The seamers have been good while the spinners have been attacked.

Bravo and Clarke exchange smiles and talks as they head off. Good to see. A very good session for the Windies. 98 runs in 30 overs for the loss of Kirk Edwards. After a decent bowling display in the first session, the bowling was uncharacteristically poor from the Aussies and the fielding was even shoddier.

56.6 Edwards to Hussey, NOT OUT. It was a yorker outside off, 141 kph, Hussey tried to drive but missed. There was a noise as the ball went past and there was a huge appeal. Replays showed that the ball went beneath the bat. 160/4

Well, an appeal has been made against Michael Hussey for a caught behind. The umpires are not sure whether it is out and have referred it upstairs.

Naughty naughty, Michael Holding. He sees a couple of girls dancing in the stands and says that there is a lot of movement in those parts. And, then cheekily says, this is a grassless pitch and the bowlers have not found any such movement! Ha!

42.2 K Roach to Watson, OUT! Caught behind! Roach strikes straightaway! Full outside off, pretty wide, 138.6 kph, Watson goes for the drive but gets a thick outside edge and Baugh takes it.

Kemar Roach to start off proceedings after Lunch. 11-0-43-0 so far. Watson to face. All set! Here we go!

Welcome back. A brilliant weather awaits us. West Indies have been the team on top for 7 sessions now. One more good one, especially this one and the Aussies will be in a deep trouble. The visitors would be aware of that and will know that they need to get their heads down and sting partnerships to have a session going their way.

Day 3, session 2......

Australia managed to score 89 runs in this session but West Indies on top with the visitors needing another 117 to avoid the follow-on. Watson and Clarke are looking in good touch but the pitch is breaking up and the batsmen will have their work cut out, especially against Bishoo. Join us back at 1640 GMT (2210 IST) for the second session.

A good session for both sides with West Indies ahead because of the three wickets. Sammy was the man with the golden arm as he removed the two openers in identical fashion. Warner could not convert a good start while Cowan struggled and Ponting was sold a dummy down the river by Watson.

41.6 D Bishoo to Clarke, Full outside off, Clarke comes down the track and drives it back to the bowler. LUNCH ON DAY 3! 133/3

41.3 Ben Hilfenhaus to Brathwaite, The batsman lets the ball go outside his off stump. 94/1

41.2 Ben Hilfenhaus to Brathwaite, FOUR! Frustration for Australia. Hilfenhaus lands a perfect delivery, full outside off, 137 kph, gets it to swing away, entices the batsman into the drive and gets an outside edge. The ball flies past second slip to third man! Probably in Australia, third slip would have gobbled it but over here, keeping more than two slips may not be advisable. 94/1

41.1 Ben Hilfenhaus to Brathwaite, Full outside off, 138.7 kph, driven towards mid off. 90/1

40.6 N Deonarine to Watson, Ooopss....run out chance missed! Landed outside off, Watson pushes it towards point and clearly shouts, "NO." But Clarke keeps on running and is nearly at Watson's end. He runs back and luckily for him, the throw comes pretty late to the bowler which enables Clarke to get in. A frustrated Deonarine throws the ball back. 132/3

40.5 N Deonarine to Watson, Another back foot defense. 132/3

40.4 N Deonarine to Watson, Goes back in his crease to defend. 132/3

40.3 N Lyon to Edwards, The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 90/1

40.1 N Lyon to Edwards, Defended off the back foot by the batsman. 86/1

Narsingh Deonarine into the attack now. Probably the last over before Lunch. This stand is worth 47 from 96 balls. Australia have scored 87/3 in 30.1 overs this morning. They still need another 119 to avoid the follow-on with 7 wickets in hand. 68 overs left in the day.

39.6 D Bishoo to Watson, Landed on middle, goes back to defend it towards Bishoo. 131/3

38.4 S Watson to Edwards, FOUR! Strays on the pads, 132.6 kph, Edwards clips it towards the fine leg region where Hilfenhaus slides to his left and pulls the ball back. However, replays show that while flicking the ball back, Hilfy's foot was touching the ropes. 82/1

38.3 S Watson to K Edwards, Full on middle, driven straight to mid on. This is a well set field. Nicely timed strokes are finding the fielders. 78/1

37.1 D Bishoo to Watson, BEATEN! That is a snorter! Full outside off, Watson comes forward to defend but the ball spins out of the rough, bounces and goes past the outside edge. Beats the keeper but Sammy dives from slip to stop the ball. Brilliant. 127/3

36.4 S Watson to Brathwaite, Good length delivery outside off, 127.5 kph, turned towards short mid-wicket. This is turning out to be a battle of patience at the moment. Australia are pretty happy playing the waiting game. 71/1

35.2 D Bishoo to Clarke, Full on middle, played towards mid-wicket. 124/3

35.1 D Bishoo to Clarke, CLARKE SURVIVES A CAUGHT BEHIND APPEAL. Short outside off, Clarke goes for the pull but misses as it stays low. Baugh collects and leaps up in celebration and appeals for the catch. Clarke shakes his head but umpire Tony Hill raises his finger after a long thought. Clarke immediately goes for the review and replays are not that conclusive. There is some noise though, but not too sure whether it came as the ball passed the bat. The decision takes a long time to come and eventually the on-field call is reversed. 124/3

Shane Watson introduced into the attack. This stand is worth 33 from 111 balls. West Indies have scored 11/0 in 7 overs since Lunch.

Australia have scored 60/3 in 20.1 overs this morning. They still need another 146 to avoid the follow-on with 7 wickets in hand. 78 overs remaining in the day.

DRINKS BREAK. West Indies' morning so far. Just conceded 60 runs and picked up 3 wickets. The top order for Australia has got starts but the openers could not convert the same. Watson has been attacking and his team's progress relies on him now.

Michael Clarke is having a chat with umpire Ian Gould. It will be Peter Siddle to start off proceedings after Lunch. Edwards to face. All set! Here we go!

Welcome back. The Aussies make their way out to the middle. Brathwaite and Edwards wear their gear and now follow the Aussies.

Honours shared even at Lunch. West Indies have batted cautiously, albeit slowly but solidly. 60 runs scored and just the sole wicket lost of Barath. Australia bowled with discipline for a major part of the session but lost the plot towards the end. They could have got Brathwaite as well, had Siddle hung on to his chance. But a pretty decent effort overall. An excellent over rate. Join us back at 1640 GMT (2210 IST) for the second session.

23.6 F Edwards to Watson, OUT! Ponting is run out! Watson has sold his former skipper a dummy. Full on middle, 138.6 kph, Watson works it behind square leg. The batsmen take the single and Watson sets off for the second. Ponting responds but then Watson sees Brathwaite get to the ball quickly from mid-wicket and stops. Ponting has no option but to go back. Watson then tries to sacrifice his wicket by running but it is too late. Ponting tries to make his crease but cannot. He shoots an angry look towards Watson and trudges off, kicking the ground in frustration. Watson is down on his haunches and is angry with himself.

22.6 Ben Hilfenhaus to K Edwards, FOUR! Sweet! Full on middle, 138.1 kph, Edwards drives it down the ground and gets a boundary! There is a silly mid on in place followed by a proper mid on but he bisects them to perfection. 55/1

21.6 K Roach to R Ponting, FOUR! A fine counter-attacking shot. Roach bowls this short and down the leg side, 141.3 kph, Ponting has had enough of ducking and pulls it with disdain to the fine leg fence. 9 runs from the over. 74/2

21.5 K Roach to Ponting, Another poor delivery down the leg side, 143.4 kph, ducked under. Not sure his captain wants that kind of a line. 70/2

21.3 K Roach to Ponting, Goes for the short ball but it is way down the leg side, 141 kph, left alone. 70/2

Now then, Ponting and Roach had a great battle when these two teams last played each other in Australia. In fact, Roach had even injured Ponting with a barricade of short deliveries and that is precisely from when, Ponting started to struggle against those type of deliveries. Here we go then. I assure you, no love lost between these two.

20.6 D Sammy to Ponting, Perfect shot but for no runs. Full outside off, 126.3 kph, Ponting comes forward in his trademark style and drives it straight down the ground. Unfortunately for him, it is so straight that it hits the stumps at the non-striker's end! A wicket maiden for Sammy. 65/2

Ravi Rampaul is on the field as a substitute.

DRINKS BREAK.

20.2 D Sammy to D Warner, OUT! The ball is legal and Warner has got to go! Terrific delivery from Sammy again. Almost similar to the Cowan wicket. Pitched up outside off, 122 kph, entices Warner into the drive and gets a thick outside edge. The ball travels to Bravo at second slip who makes no mistake. Warner departs for 42, AUSTRALIA 65/2! 65/2

18.1 Ben Hilfenhaus to Brathwaite, Full toss, down the leg side, 131.6 kph, Brathwaite cannot connect. 38/1

17.6 K Roach to Watson, The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot. 63/1

Ben Hilfenhaus is back on from the other end. 5-2-6-0 so far.

Okay...umpire Tony Hill quietly has a word with Harris regarding his follow-through.

17.4 R Harris to Edwards, Full and straight, 137.3 kph, solidly defended. 38/1

Kirk Edwards walks in at number 3, replacing Barath.

17.3 R Harris to Barath, OUT! Caught! The ploy works! Just before this delivery, Clarke got a leg gully in, which meant that a short ball was coming. There was a deep square leg in place, in case the batsman went for the pull. Harris bowled to the plan, short on middle, 137.4 kph, Barath went for the pull but miscued it high in the air. It went exactly where the fielder had been placed at deep square leg and Siddle, coming in a few yards, took it comfortably. Finally Australia get a breakthrough. Barath departs for 22, WEST INDIES 38/1! 38/1

Harris comes around the wicket.

17.2 R Harris to Barath, Well outside off, 135 kph, left alone. 38/0

16.5 D Sammy to Watson, The batsman drives the ball straight down the ground. 60/1

16.4 D Sammy to Watson, SAFE. The umpire's call saves Watson here. Full outside off, 125 kph, Watson shoulders arms but the ball nips back in sharply and hits him on the front pad. Sammy goes for the review after Ian Gould shakes his head on the appeal. Again, Hawk Eye shows the ball clipping the top of the off stump. My colleague over here feels that Watson was saved by about 20 percent. Close call. Could have gone either way. 60/1

Review taken for LBW against Watson! He was given not out.

16.3 D Sammy to Watson, Outside off, 123.6 kph, left alone again. 60/1

16.2 Sammy to Watson, Huge appeal for LBW, turned down. Good length delivery outside off, 124.9 kph, Watson looks to flick but misses and is hit high on the pads. Sammy thinks about the review but does not take it. The Hawk Eye shows the ball clipping the top of the stumps. 60/1

16.1 D Sammy to Watson, The batsman shoulders arms to let that one through. 60/1

Ryan Harris is back on with a change of ends. 4-0-12-0 so far.

16.3 P Siddle to Brathwaite, Fuller, 138.6 kph, driven straight to mid off. 38/0

16.2 P Siddle to Brathwaite, FOUR! Streaky! Well, Brathwaite has shown a great deal of discipline so far but not on that occasion. Short outside off, 138.1 kph, Brathwaite goes for the cut but is too close to the ball and gets a thick outside edge right between the two gullies to third man! 38/0

16.1 P Siddle to Brathwaite, Full on middle, 137.4 kph, driven back to Siddle who sticks out his right hand and parries it to Lyon at mid on. The fielder returns a wild throw way wide of the stumps to the keeper. 34/0

15.6 K Roach to Warner, Full outside off, pushed straight to cover. 60/1

15.5 K Roach to Warner, The batsman has stood up on his toes to play that one. 60/1

15.4 K Roach to Warner, FOUR! Caressed! Full outside off, wide as well, 137.3 kph, driven through the covers for a boundary! 60/1

15.3 K Roach to Warner, Another leave outside off. 56/1

15.2 K Roach to Warner, The batsman lets the ball go outside his off stump. 56/1

15.1 K Roach to Warner, Goes back in his crease and defends. 56/1

15.6 N Lyon to Barath, Gets it wrong, down the leg side, 84.7 kph, easily worked towards fine leg for a couple. Australia struggling to pick up a wicket here. 34/0

15.5 N Lyon to Barath, Same line, a better defensive technique this time. 32/0

15.4 N Lyon to Barath, Fires this on a fuller length on middle, is defended awkwardly. 32/0

15.3 N Lyon to Barath, Quicker one outside off, 83.7 kph, Barath goes right back to push it towards Lyon. 32/0

15.2 N Lyon to Barath, Comes forward a touch and blocks it again. 32/0

15.1 N Lyon to Barath, Landed on middle, 84.5 kph, Barath goes back and works it in front of short leg. 32/0

14.5 D Sammy to Watson, Outside off, 125.5 kph, played straight to point. 52/1

14.4 D Sammy to Watson, Outside off, 124.9 kph, left alone. 52/1

14.3 D Sammy to Watson, Full outside off, 125.2 kph, defended solidly towards cover. 52/1

14.2 D Sammy to Watson, Far too full outside off, 127.3 kph, driven back to the bowler who looks to field and threatens to throw it back but fumbles. 52/1

14.1 D Sammy to Watson, Full outside off, 124.1 kph, Watson gets forward to defend it towards mid-wicket. 52/1

Interesting. Lyon coming around the wicket.

DRINKS BREAK. A pretty attritional session so far. Australia have not piled on the pressure but they have not allowed the Windies to get away either. No wickets taken but only 32 runs conceded. Excellent over-rate. Australia will look for at least a wicket before the session ends while the West Indies will aim to up the scoring a bit now. The Aussies did have an opportunity, but Siddle put down Brathwaite.

14.6 P Siddle to Brathwaite, Outside off again, 138.9 kph, Brathwaite defends again. 32/0

14.5 P Siddle to Brathwaite, Landed on off, 139 kph, Brathwaite gets hit bat down at the last moment to defend. 32/0

14.3 P Siddle to Barath, Pushes it wide of mid off and takes a quick single. 32/0

14.2 P Siddle to A Barath, FOUR! Lucky! Siddle dangles a carrot outside off, giving Barath plenty of width and also on a drivable length. Barath goes after it, only to get a thick outside edge past gully to third man. 31/0

14.2 P Siddle to A Barath, WIDE! Ohhh..that is a monstrous delivery, short on middle, 137.6 kph, Barath ducks but that is miles over his head! A wide signalled aptly. 27/0

14.1 P Siddle to Barath, A bouncer on middle, 139.4 kph, Barath ducks. 26/0

Some sawdust being sprinkled near the bowler's landing area.

13.6 K Roach to Watson, On a length outside off, 141.3 kph, Watson works it wide of mid-wicket for a single to get off the mark. 52/1

13.5 K Roach to Watson, This is outside off, nips back in, 140.2 kph, shouldered arms to. Roach is picking up pace now. 51/1

13.1 K Roach to Warner, Beaten! Yes, that is the line and length, full outside off, nipping back in, 137.1 kph, Warner feels for it and is beaten. The Windies have been far better than yesterday this morning. 50/1

13.6 N Lyon to Brathwaite, Flatter on middle, driven back to the bowler. Good variations from the bowler in this over. 26/0

13.5 N Lyon to K Brathwaite, Floated outside off, Brathwaite drives it through the covers but Warner over there dives full length to his left to stop the ball. 26/0

13.4 N Lyon to Brathwaite, Comes forward this time to defend. 26/0

13.1 N Lyon to Brathwaite, Landed outside off, turning in, 82.7 kph, Brathwaite defends. 26/0

12.6 D Sammy to Watson, Outside off, Watson gets a big stride forward and pushes it to cover. Some confusion in the running and eventually they do not take it. A wicket maiden for Sammy. In fact, he is yet to concede a run so far. 50/1

12.5 D Sammy to Watson, Half volley on the pads, 122.5 kph, flicked straight to square leg. That's an opprtunity missed by Watson. 50/1

12.4 D Sammy to Watson, Full on middle, 124.2 kph, solidly defended. 50/1

Shane Watson walks in at number 3, replacing Cowan. Australia need another 200 runs to avoid the follow-on with 9 wickets in hand.

12.3 D Sammy to Cowan, OUT! Caught behind! Sammy gets the breakthrough! He may not be the most lethal but he is very, very effective! Full outside off, good angle, 125.4 kph, Cowan lunges at it and gets a thick outside edge to Baugh. Sammy has been hitting consistent areas this morning and he has been rewarded. Another failure for Cowan, he departs for 14, AUSTRALIA 50/1! 50/1

12.2 D Sammy to Cowan, On a good length this time, 126.2 kph, Cowan watches it go past. 50/0

12.4 P Siddle to Barath, Defended off the back foot by the batsman. 26/0

12.3 P Siddle to Brathwaite, And now an outside edge does not carry! Siddle persists with the fuller length outside off, Brathwaite goes for the drive again and gets a thick outside edge which lands short of a diving Hussey at gully. He does not stop it cleanly and a single is conceded. 26/0

12.2 Siddle to Brathwaite, DROPPED! That should have been taken. Full outside off, 141.5 kph, Brathwaite comes forward and drives it back to Siddle. The bowler sticks out his left hand but cannot cling on. Brathwaite kicks the ground with his foot. I suspect for the shot he played, not for the catch getting dropped. 25/0

12.1 P Siddle to Brathwaite, The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 25/0

11.6 K Roach to Warner, FOUR! Brilliant! Half volley floated outside off, 136.8 kph, Warner reaches out and drives it through the covers! The fielder dives but the ball goes past him in a flash. 50-STAND UP! 50/0

10.6 D Sammy to Cowan, Another leave outside off. That's 5 out of 6 balls in this over not being played at. 44/0

10.5 D Sammy to Cowan, Good length delivery outside off, slightly closer to the batsman, 125 kph, left alone again. 44/0

10.4 D Sammy to Cowan, Back to leaving balls outside off. 44/0

The Australian dressing room seems to be in good spirits right now, with Clarke and coach Mickey Arthur sharing a joke.

10.3 D Sammy to Cowan, Gets this one to land on middle, 128.1 kph, Cowan defends. 44/0

10.2 D Sammy to Cowan, This is wider, 128.6 kph, left alone once again. 44/0

Spin is early. Nathan Lyon to bowl now.

10.5 P Siddle to Barath, Bangs it in on middle, 121.2 kph, Barath watches the slower delivery well and blocks. 24/0

10.4 P Siddle to Barath, Landed well outside off, 140 kph, swinging further away, Wade dives to his right to stop it. 24/0

10.3 P Siddle to Barath, This is right on off stump, 140.5 kph, defended back to the bowler. 24/0

10.2 P Siddle to Barath, Good length delivery this time, 139.5 kph, left alone. 24/0

10.1 P Siddle to Barath, Good short delivery, at a pace of 140.8 kph, but slightly wayward, down the leg side, Barath ducks. 24/0

Interesting. Darren Sammy to bowl now.

9.6 K Roach to Warner, Good length delivery but again, wide outside off, 135.3 kph, nice carry, left alone. 44/0

Okay....Cowan and Warner stride out to the middle followed by the Windies players. A total of 98.1 overs to be bowled today, that extra delivery is the pending one from Kemar Roach's over. Warner is ready to face. All set! Here we go!

The West Indies sqaud get their photograph taken in coloured clothes. (Wonder why when we are playing in white clothing).

PITCH REPORT - Geoff Lawson says that the clouds have been a little darker than the previous two days. On the pitch, he says that it is looking harder and harder. There are some footmarks outside the off stump to a left hander and with Australia having 4 of them, the marks could be the greatest ally to Devendra Bishoo. But otherwise, he reckons that the track still looks a good one to bat on and the bowlers will have their work cut out.

WEATHER REPORT - There are a few dark clouds approaching but as of now, play will start on time.

Chanderpaul says that scoring against Australia is always difficult and they made it even more difficult for him. Hence this hundred is right up there. On batting with the lower order, he says that you need to trust them to get the job done for you. Admits that it plays on the mind when the last three players are remaining but you have got to trust them. Says that as a cricketer you want to achieve and get past records and this particular one of becoming the leading run-getter at this venue was in his mind. Is happy to have achieved that and hopes to continue for a couple of more years.

Hello and a warm welcome to the third day's play of the first Test between West Indies and Australia at Barbados! Chanderpaul took the Windies to a terrific position yesterday with his century and the Aussies have responded in a positive fashion. They will look to continue the same approach while the hosts would look to bowl in better areas than yesterday. Hope we get a good and full day's play.

Day 3, session 1......

Play starts early again on Day 3, at 1330 GMT (1900 IST). Thanks a lot for tuning in and looking foward for your company tomorrow. Until then, you can surf the tabs for the action from the Indian T20 league. Adios! Take Care!

A good finish to the day for the Aussies then. They have been on the receiving end for most of this Test match and they will feel better to have ended this day on a good note. They have raced to 44/0 and need another 206 to avoid the follow-on. The Windies were quick but their lines were pretty poor. They were too short and wide and will look to rectify it tomorrow.

Good scenes out there. The Windies are in a huddle and now Shane Watson comes out to have a chat with Darren Sammy. Asks him about his health after he got hit on the helmet off Watson's bouncer. The players look in good spirits and Sammy and Watson exchange smiles. Good to see in this era of sledging.

The light has deteriorated pretty quickly and the umpires are taking the players off. STUMPS ON DAY 2!

8.5 D Bishoo to Warner, The batsman defends it from within the crease. 39/0

8.4 D Bishoo to Warner, A carbon copy of what happened on the previous ball. The length, the line, the shot, the area to which the ball went and the fielding which included the dive as well. The only difference was the pace - 86.9 kph. 39/0

8.3 D Bishoo to Warner, Short on middle, 82.1 kph, Warner goes back and punches it towards cover where the fielder dives to his right to stop the ball. 39/0

8.1 P Siddle to Barath, Full outside off, 136.6 kph, Barath lets it go. 18/0

Time for spin. Devendra Bishoo to bowl. 39 Test wickets at an average of 36.23. Australia trail by 414 runs with all wickets intact which implies that they need 215 more to avoid the follow-on. 8 overs left in the day. Doubt we will get that.

7.6 K Roach to Ed Cowan, FOUR! Well played. Landed on length outside off, 141.9 kph, angling in, Cowan guides it deftly behind point for a boundary. Steady start this for Australia. 35/0

7.5 K Roach to Cowan, Closer to the off stump and quicker, 141 kph, a cautious Cowan watches it closely and lets it through. 31/0

7.4 K Roach to Cowan, Fuller and wider outside off, left alone. 31/0

7.1 K Roach to Warner, Short outside off, 141.3 kph, punched through the covers for a single. 31/0

7.6 Ben Hilfenhaus to Brathwaite, Full on middle, 138.4 kph, nicely blocked. 18/0

7.5 Ben Hilfenhaus to Brathwaite, The batsman lets the ball go outside his off stump. 18/0

6.5 F Edwards to Warner, Wide outside off stump, 142.9 kph, the batsman leaves it alone. 29/0

6.4 F Edwards to D Warner, FOUR! Not very pretty looking but effective. Short outside off, 145 kph, Warner goes for the pull but it comes on to him a touch quicker and he mistimes it. But it beats mid on to the ropes. 29/0

6.4 Harris to Barath, SAFE. Full on middle, 142.6 kph, Barath drives it straight back. Harris gets down and tries to stop and gets a finger to it, deflecting it towards the non-striker's end. The Aussies appeal and it is referred upstairs but replays show that though Braithwaite's bat was in the air, it came down in time. Meanwhile, the batsmen take a single. 15/0

Run out appeal against Brathwaite.....referred upstairs....

5.5 K Roach to Cowan, Another leave outside the off stump. 19/0

5.4 K Roach to Cowan, Action replay of the previous delivery. 19/0

Peter Siddle is ready to do the night-watchman duties, should he be needed. Watson is padded up as well.

4.5 F Edwards to Warner, Way down the leg side, left alone. 19/0

4.4 Edwards to Warner, Appeals for LBW and a catch, both turned down. Fiery delivery on leg, 146.1 kph, Warner is caught in his crease and the ball goes off his thighs towards the slips. 19/0

4.3 F Edwards to Warner, Slashes hard and misses outside off. 19/0

4.2 F Edwards to D Warner, FOUR! Beauty! Edwards fires this on a fuller length, 144.2 kph, but wide outside off. Warner reaches out and drives it through the covers. 19/0

4.1 F Edwards to Warner, The openers are trying their best to keep the slip cordon intersted. Another wide delivery outside off, 144.4 kph, Warner misses out with his attempted cut. Clearly, the definition of Test cricket is different for these batsmen than what the others would feel. Ideally, play till close should be the idea. However, it seems to be the opposite for these two left-handers. 15/0

3.5 K Roach to Cowan, Slash and a miss again. Good length delivery wide outside off, moving away with the angle, 144.5 kph, Cowan flashes hard but misses. Already, in these 4 overs, the Aussie openers have played an array of shots which seems to be more than what the Windies played in their whole innings. The only difference is, there is hardly any connection between bat and ball. 15/0

3.4 K Roach to Ed Cowan, This is short outside off, 144.7 kph, Cowan latches on to the pull shot but mistimes it towards mid on. 15/0

Some sawdust is being sprinkled near the bowler's landing area.

Shane Watson is padded up. Michael Clarke, Mickey Arthur and the support staff are sharing a joke. Smiles all around.

2.6 F Edwards to Cowan, Full and down the leg side, 142.3 kph, Cowan fails to connect. "AAARRRRGGHHGHHH!" is the cry from Cowan for missing out. That should have been put away. Fine leg was pretty square. 14/0

Edwards coming around the wicket now.

2.5 F Edwards to Warner, Good length delivery outside off, 144.2 kph, punched through the covers for a single. 14/0

2.4 F Edwards to Warner, Full outside off, 145 kph, pretty wide, this time Warner is not tempted and lets it go. 13/0

2.1 R Harris to Brathwaite, FOUR! Short, on middle, 138.6 kph, Braithwaite gets across and tucks it through fine leg for a boundary. 7/0

1.6 K Roach to Cowan, FOUR! He gets it away! Not in control by any means. Good length delivery outside off, 140.8 kph, Cowan pushes at it away from his body and hits it in the air, but past backward point to third man. Roach won't mind that. 7 runs from the over. 11/0

1.5 K Roach to Cowan, Short and wide outside off, 145.2 kph, Cowan goes after it and has a wild slash, only to miss. Not too sure about this flashy approach from the batsmen. So early into the innings. That too, at this hour of the day. 7/0

1.4 K Roach to Cowan, Comes forward and plays it towards point. 7/0

1.3 K Roach to Warner, Good length delivery on middle, worked through square leg for a single. 7/0

1.2 K Roach to Warner, Now, how do I describe that shot? Not the best on display.

Kirk Edwards chases it down from mid off and slides near the ropes to pull it back. Two runs taken. 6/0

1.1 K Roach to Warner, Full and wide outside off, 142.9 kph, a loosener one suspects, at least I suspect, Warner lets it go. 4/0

1.5 Ben Hilfenhaus to Barath, Goes back in his crease and defends solidly. 3/0

1.1 Ben Hilfenhaus to Brathwaite, Swing first up, 135.5 kph, from leg to middle, like a banana, Braithwaite defends. 2/0

It will be Kemar Roach to bowl from the other end. Australia trail by 445 runs with all wickets intact which implies that they need 246 more to avoid the follow-on.

0.6 F Edwards to Cowan, FOUR LEG BYES. Bowls this down the leg side, 143.1 kph, Cowan falls over in the process of flicking it away but misses. The ball goes off his pads towards the fine leg fence. 4/0
