Commentary (West Indies innings)

If we see a lead of 54, it looks quite small but believe me on this deck, which is turning square, it's a handy lead to have. Australia would look to bat sensibly and pile on a big total on the board. The openers will be out soon, stay tuned...

Right then, Australia took just four balls to dismantle the last pair and have earned a vital lead of 54 runs. Once again Chanderpaul was the mainstay of the Windies batting, stroking a fluent 94 and was involved in an enthralling 130-run stand with Deonarine(55). The wicket of the latter triggered a collapse and West Indies lost six wickets for 27. Nathan Lyon was the chief destroyer with a five-for and impressed one and all.

104.4 Beer to Baugh, OUT! LBW! Slow loopy delivery angling into the batsman, it lands on leg and spins away gently after pitching, Baugh tries to sweep it across the line but misses and is hit on the pads. They appeal but the umpire turns it down. It is referred and the Hawk Eye shows it to be hitting leg. The on-field decision is overruled and West Indies are all out for 257! 257/10

Appeal for an LBW! Turned down! It is referred by Clarke...

104.3 M Beer to Baugh, FOUR! Bad delivery from Beer, short and wide outside off, Baugh goes on the back foot and whacks it through point for a boundary. 257/9

104.2 M Beer to Baugh, Full floated delivery on middle and off, Baugh gets forward and defends. 253/9

104.1 M Beer to Edwards, Quicker delivery pitched full outside off, Edwards tries to hit it through the line but misses. The keeper also fails to collect it and they take a bye. 253/9

Out come the players on the field! Edwards and Baugh are the overnight batsmen. Beer to start off the proceedings...

Pitch - The wicket still has some spin in it. Cracks are a fraction bigger. It is similar like it was yesterday, good for spinners but batsmen can survive.

Nathan Lyon - "Just tried to be patient, enjoyed bowling and tried to hung in there. We did the hard work but have to be patient. I just stick to my strength and wicket here are supporting. I have been lucky to do some batting drills with Ricky Ponting. It's going to be very important day for us today and we will work hard and look to make progress in the game.

Warm welcome to all our viewers for the fourth day of the second Test match at the Queen's Park Oval. It was a massive turnaround for the Aussies yesterday as Nathan Lyon shone with the ball after the rain spell and picked up his second Test five-wicket haul, thereby changing the complete complexion of the match. The hosts still have a deficit of 59 runs and they would hope that the last pair of Edwards and Baugh eat up most of the runs. Australia, on the other hand, would look to claim the last wicket quickly and start their second innings. Time could be a factor and with rain around, any result is possible.

Day 4, first session...

That's it from us then! Australia will hope to avert any sort of a dodgy stand from this last-wicket pair tomorrow morning and look to wrap things up quickly. West Indies will look to delay the same. Tomorrow is another early start and play gets underway at 1330 GMT (1900 IST). Until then, on behalf of the commentators and scorers, Adios! Take Care!

But then, Lyon bowled a beauty to Deonarine to have him stumped and ran through the lower order, taking 5 wickets in the space of 15 runs and 31 balls. He has kept Australia in front as of now, with the Windies trailing by 59 runs with a wicket in hand. Baugh and Edwards are at the crease and it will be interesting to see if they can offer a fight, after the tail did so well at Barbados.

A fine end to the day by Australia. They were worried when Chanderpaul and Deonarine were going along nicely, but they hung in there. The second new ball did not provide any breakthroughs and Hilfenhaus and Pattinson were struggling. Things went from bad to worse as Pattinson went off the field due to a back injury and Watson started to walk gingerly as well.

103.6 N Lyon to C Baugh, Mix-up.....but safe in the end. Tossed up outside off, Baugh drives it towards mid off and sets off for the single. However, Edwards has not taken a start and Baugh has to get back. STUMPS ON DAY 3! 252/9

99.1 N Lyon to Roach, OUT! That is an unlucky dismissal! Second Test 5-wicket haul for Lyon! Lucky break for Australia. Landed outside off, spinning down, 85 kph, Roach looks to work it to the leg side but misses and Wade collects. Nothing from the keeper but Lyon appeals and umpire Gould raises his finger! Well, Roach is not happy and replays are not that conclusive either. In one angle, it seems as if the ball hit the bat but in another it seems as if the ball hit his pad! Roach departs for 0, WEST INDIES 249/9! 249/9

93.3 N Lyon to Shillingford, OUT! Nicely caught at short leg! Wicket number four for Lyon! Flighted nicely outside off, 83.5 kph, Shillingford lunges at it. But the ball bounces sharply and takes the inside edge towards short leg where Cowan dives to his left and takes a clean catch. The Aussies celebrate but Shillingford does not go. He waits for the umpire's decision and now Gould raises his finger. Shillingford gone for 4, WEST INDIES 241/8! 241/8

93.2 N Lyon to Shillingford, Full again, keeps low, Shillingford does well to defend. 241/7

91.6 N Lyon to Shillingford, FOUR! This is action-packed batting! The lower order is not going to hang around to defend. If it is up there, it has got to go - Caribbean mantra. Flighted outside off, Shillingford follows that mantra to perfection and smashes it over mid off for a boundary to get off the mark. 10 runs and a wicket from the over. 241/7

91.5 N Lyon to Shillingford, The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. 237/7

Shane Shillingford walks in at number 9, replacing Sammy. West Indies trail by 74 runs with 3 wickets in hand.

91.4 N Lyon to Sammy, OUT! Caught! Straight to the man! Waste of a wicket from Sammy. Flighted outside off, 84.5 kph, Sammy looks to go over the top and hits it straight down the ground. But there is a man stationed right at long on for that shot and Michael Hussey takes it nicely. Third wicket for Lyon! Sammy walks back for 1, disgusted with himself. WEST INDIES 237/7! 237/7

90.3 S Watson to Baugh, Full outside off, 131.5 kph, hit straight to cover. 231/6

90.2 S Watson to Baugh, Huge appeal for LBW, turned down. Full outside off, 128.1 kph, coming back in, Baugh looks to defend but misses and is hit on the pads. It looks pretty adjacent, Clarke is not sure about the review, Wade thinks that the batsman has hit it and Clarke does not review. Replays reveal a big inside edge. 231/6

90.1 S Watson to Baugh, Good length delivery outside off, 127.3 kph, played to point. 231/6

Darren Sammy, the captain, comes in at number 8, replacing Chanderpaul. West Indies trail by 80 runs with 4 wickets in hand.

89.6 N Lyon to Chanderpaul, OUT! LBW! Chanderpaul falls for 94! Second wicket in as many overs for Lyon. Beautiful delivery. Flighted on middle, 87.7 kph, Chanderpaul comes forward to defend but misses and is hit on the pads. Lyon appeals and umpire Gould raises his finger after a long thought. No reviews left for the Windies but that was plumb. A magnificent knock from Chanderpaul comes to a close. He was dropped on 8, mind you, has made a world of a difference. WEST INDIES 231/6! 231/6

89.5 N Lyon to Chanderpaul, Closer to the off stump, 83.8 kph, Chanderpaul comes forward with the intention to defend but then decides to let go. 231/5

89.4 N Lyon to Chanderpaul, Action replay of the previous delivery. This was bowled at 85.8 kph. 231/5

89.3 N Lyon to Chanderpaul, Landed well outside off this time, 84.3 kph, bigger turn, left alone. 231/5

89.2 N Lyon to Chanderpaul, Landed outside off, 84.7 kph, slight turn, Chanderpaul comes forward and pushes it towards cover. 231/5

89.1 N Lyon to Chanderpaul, Full on middle, 84.8 kph, flicked towards mid-wicket. 231/5

88.6 S Watson to Baugh, Misdirected delivery, full and wide outside off, 130.2 kph, Baugh lets it go and Wade dives full length to his right to collect. 231/5

88.5 S Watson to Baugh, Full and straight, 130.8 kph, Baugh comes forward and defends it to cover. 231/5

88.4 S Watson to Baugh, Good length delivery outside off, 127.1 kph, pushed towards point. 231/5

88.1 S Watson to Baugh, Full and straight, 126.3 kph, defended back to the bowler. 231/5

Real concern for the Australians. James Pattinson seems to have done something to his back and is walking off the ground. Peter Forrest comes in as the substitute.

87.6 N Lyon to Baugh, Backs away to the leg side again and punches it to point for a single. A run and a wicket from the over. 231/5

87.5 N Lyon to Baugh, Gives himself room to the leg side and plays it towards point. 230/5

87.4 N Lyon to Baugh, The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. 230/5

87.3 N Lyon to Baugh, DROPPED! But a tough chance. Tossed up outside off, Baugh leans to work it to the leg side but gets a thick inside edge. The ball goes quickly to Cowan at short leg who is late in reacting and the ball goes off his left hand towards mid-wicket. Sharp chance, it either sticks or it doesn't. Remember, Barath pulled off a stinger at shrt leg to dismiss Watson in a similar manner. 230/5

87.2 N Lyon to Baugh, Full on middle, solidly defended. 230/5

Carlton Baugh walks in at number 7, replacing Deonarine. West Indies trail by 81 runs with 5 wickets in hand.

87.1 N Lyon to Deonarine, OUT! Stumped! And Australia finally get a breakthrough! Flighted beautifully outside off, 86.1 kph, Deonarine is drawn forward into the drive but he comes far too much outside the crease. Is beaten in the flight and Wade completes an easy stumping. Deonarine's back foot is nowhere near even getting back in. A fine knock of 55 comes to an end and the massive 130-run stand is broken. WEST INDIES 230/5! 230/5

No options. Clarke is forced to go back to Lyon. 20-5-52-0 so far. This stand is worth 130 from 265 balls. West Indies have scored 42/0 in 12.3 overs since Tea. They trail by 81 runs. 16 overs left in the day.

Watson is moving a bit gingerly after that last ball. More problems for Australia now. He already had hamstring and back problems.

86.6 S Watson to Chanderpaul, Full outside off, 129.6 kph, Chanderpaul keeps his bat inside the line. 230/4

86.5 S Watson to Chanderpaul, The batsman defends it from within the crease. 230/4

Shane Watson is back now. 8-2-12-0 so far. This stand is worth 128 from 259 balls. West Indies have scored 40/0 in 11.3 overs since Tea. They trail by 83 runs. 17 overs left in the day.

85.6 Ben Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, FOUR! There he goes again, lands another one down the leg side, 137.4 kph, glanced fine to the fine leg fence. Hilfenhaus is frustrated. Clarke is furious now. 228/4

85.5 Ben Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, Another leave outside off. This has not been Hilfenhaus' best spell. 224/4

85.4 Ben Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, Well outside off, 138.6 kph, left alone. 224/4

Third Test Fifty for Narsingh Deonarine, second against Australia!

84.5 J Pattinson to Deonarine, Down the leg side, 135.8 kph, coming in, Deonarine hops across to flick but misses. 219/4

84.3 J Pattinson to Deonarine, Shoulders arms to let that one through. 219/4

84.2 J Pattinson to Deonarine, Wide down the leg side, 133.7 kph, no trouble at all for the batsman. 219/4

84.1 J Pattinson to Chanderpaul, Good length delivery outside off, 136.6 kph, steered behind point for a single. 219/4

83.6 Ben Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, The batsman chooses to leave the ball outside his off stump. 218/4

83.5 Ben Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, FOUR! One wonders why the new ball is being wasted in such a manner by both the bowlers. Another one on the pads, tucked away past the keeper who has no chance this time. The ball screams away to the fine leg fence. 218/4

83.4 Ben Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, Goes back in his crease to defend. 214/4

83.3 Ben Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, The batsman shows the full face of the bat and defends the ball off the back foot. 214/4

82.4 J Pattinson to Deonarine, Indecision from the batsman. Good length delivery outside off, 136 kph, Deonarine looks to defend but then decides to let go. Is late and gets a bottom edge towards Ponting at second slip who fumbles but no run taken. 213/4

82.3 J Pattinson to Deonarine, Closer to the off stump, going away with the angle, 134.5 kph, shouldered arms to. 213/4

82.1 J Pattinson to Deonarine, Good length delivery way outside off, 134.1 kph, left alone. 213/4

81.6 Ben Hilfenhaus to Chanderpaul, Ahhh.....full outside off, Chanderpaul plays at this one and steers it in the air but the ball does not carry to gully. 213/4

81.2 Ben Hilfenhaus to Deonarine, More inconsistency. Down the leg side, ticked off to fine leg for a single. 213/4

Yippeeee!!!!! We are all set to play! The players are back in the middle. 28 overs are left for the day. It has gone slightly brighter out there but there are some clouds around. In fact, plenty of clouds.

GOOD NEWS! The rain has stopped and the sun is shining brightly. The ground staff are working feverishly to get the water off the covers. So we should get some play soon.

The rain seems to have eased out into a drizzle. The umpires are coming out to inspect. It has gone brighter.

UPDATE - Still raining. Pretty heavily too.

The covers are coming in from all directions and we get news from the locals that it might rain all afternoon. Hmm...stay tuned for updates.

Oh dear...the heavens have opened up and it is literally pouring down! This does not look good. Not good at all. The clouds are closing in from the mountains and it is looking pretty dark. The players walk off the field. Australia look very dejected and the camera just pans on Ponting getting his arm around Lyon to console. A terrific session so far for West Indies, scoring 56/0 in 14.3 overs.

Nathan Lyon to start off proceedings after Lunch. 16-5-35-0 so far. Chanderpaul to face. All set! Here we go!

Welcome to a slightly overcast afternoon at the Queen's Park Oval. Attritional morning today and we hope for some positive stuff in this session. The Australians walk out to the middle after a bit of a pep talk from Clarke. The batsmen follow them.

Day 3, session 2.....

A master-stroke from Clarke to bring Hussey on and it worked. The deficit is now 179 and the Aussies will look for continuous breakthroughs in the second session, else it could turn out to be a long grinding day for them. Join us back at 1640 GMT (2210 IST) after the break.

Chanderpaul and Deonarine have added 32 runs so far but they have not been allowed to score at will and only towards the dying stages of that session were they a touch positive. That dropped catch of Chanderpaul is turing out to be a costly one for Australia and could be a decisive factor in this game. The bowling was not good in general but it did well towards the end.

Some drama towards the end of the session but a good one for both sides. West Indies started off positively this morning after a slight delay in the form of Chanderpaul and Bravo. Australia then bounced back with the wicket of Bravo and have not taken the foot off the pedal since.

59.6 M Beer to Chanderpaul, SAFE! A risk on the last ball before Lunch but all is well that ends well. Full on middle, Chanderpaul comes down the track and pushes it wide of mid on and calls for a quick single. Deonarine is late in responding and the fielder throws it towards Wade who takes the bails off and appeals. It is referred upstairs and replays show that Deonarine is in by a hair's breadth. LUNCH ON DAY 3! 132/4

Run out appeal against Deonarine! Referred upstairs....

UPDATE - We get more news. According to the ICC playing conditions, the match CAN and SHOULD continue without DRS and Australia have now been informed. That means play will begin soon! In fact, as I am typing this, the umpires are taking the field now. West Indies are ready to come, Australia should walk out soon. In fact, the players are taking the field now.

UPDATE - We get news that apparently the problem is with the TV coverage and Australian captain Michael Clarke made the decision to leave the field until the situation was resolved. Well, not too sure why he would do that. With such bad weather forecasted and a good sunny morning, is it advisable to stay off the field under clear skies when there is a match to be won? Sigh. Stay tuned for more updates....

UPDATE - We get news that apparently the problem is with the TV coverage and Australian captain Michael Clarke made the decision to leave the field until the situation was resolved. Well, not too sure why he would do that. With such bad weather forecasted and a good sunny morning, is it advaisable to stay off the field under clear skies when there is a match to be won? Sigh. Stay tuned for more updates....

Oh dear...we just receive some bad news. There is an internal power problem at Queens Park Oval, so there will be NO REFERRALS till power is restored. The teams are leaving the field! Sigh! Stay tuned for updates, we will let you know as soon as we get any.

The players are out in the middle. Michael Beer to finish his pending over from last evening. Bravo to face. All set! Here we go!

WEATHER - Rain marred proceedings for most of yesterday and today there are some predictions of showers as well, but right now, it is bright and sunny. 98 overs to be bowled today and hope we get most, if not all of them.

Hello and a warm welcome to the third day's play between West Indies and Australia at Trinidad! After a slow first day, yesterday was a bit of an action-packed one, seeing 8 wickets fall. Australia were restricted to 311, but after that the visitors managed to nip out three top order wickets of West Indies. As usual, Chanderpaul is the main man for the hosts and his team will hope that he and Bravo get a good start this morning. Australia will be looking for wickets, wickets and wickets and a big lead. Sit back and enjoy the proceedings!

Day 3, session 1....

The deficit for West Indies is 262 and they require 63 more to avoid the follow-on. The pitch is a Bunsen Burner wicket, turning square and that too with variable bounce. It is not going to be easy batting on this strip. Promises to be an interesting day 3. Join us at 1330 GMT (1900 IST) to catch all the action. Until then, cheers!!!

The big covers are coming on the field and THAT WILL BE STUMPS ON DAY 2! A good day in the office for Australia, first they batted sensibly to take their first innings total beyond the 300-run mark and then have claimed three top West Indian wickets. Kemar Roach was the stand out performer today with a five-for on a dead wicket and he should be given credit for bowling his heart out.

Right then, the players are walking off the field owing to bad light. It has gone gloomy out there and the chances of light improving now is very unlike. Waiting for the official call, whether it's stumps or not!!

Ben Hilfenhaus is back. 4-2-12-1 so far. This stand is worth 4 from 35 balls. 66 more needed to avoid the follow-on.

15.1 J Pattinson to Powell, OUT! LBW! The batsman didn't ask for the review and you know what? It was pitched outside leg! A length delivery at 140.3 kph, going on with the angle and staying a shade low as well. Powell stays glued inside the crease and attempts to play it across the line. Fails to connect and is thudded on the pads. They appeal vociferously and the finger goes up too. West Indies have lost their third wicket for 38 and Pattinson strikes with his first ball! 38/3

12.4 M Beer to Barath, OUT! LBW! Dead plumb. Landed outside off, coming in with the angle, 88.4 kph, Barath gets back in his crease to defend but the ball stays low and hits him right in front. Beer appeals and umpire Erasmus raises his finger. Barath has a chat with his partner about the review but quietly walks off after the talk. He departs for a struggling 7 from 41 balls, WEST INDIES 26/2! Just the second Test wicket for Beer. 26/2

12.3 M Beer to Barath, There you go again. Landed outside off, Barath comes forward to defend but the ball spins and bounces past the edge. 26/1

CRICKET STAT - The last time Australia played two spinners in a Test was against England, at Sydney, January 2011. The other spinner was Steven Smith. Australia went on to lose that game by an innings and 83 runs. It was the first Test match for Beer. This is his second, a year and a few months later.

A superb delivery by Hilfenhaus, once again an out-swinger but it lands on middle and leg line, at 140.8 kph. Brathwaite is caught on the back foot as he attempts to flick it across the line. He misses the ball and the finger goes up after the LBW appeal. It is referred but the Hawk Eye shows it to be clipping leg. West Indies lose their first wicket for nothing! 0/1

1.4 Hilfenhaus to Brathwaite, Howzzat? Once again Hilfy angles it into the batsman and the ball nips away gently after pitching. Brathwaite is lazy with his footwork, tries to defend it from the crease but misses. They appeal but the impact is well outside off. 0/0

Commentary (Australia innings)

This Test match is alive and kicking, thanks to the wicket burst from Roach. 31 overs left in the day. Australia will be hoping for at least a couple of wickets before the close of play. Stay tuned.....

Again a similar story for Australia. The top order got starts but could not convert them. Clarke and Hussey batted well but threw their wickets away. Pattinson played a crucial knock but this time the lower order could not hang around. West Indies bowled their hearts out, especially Roach and Shillingford, who took 5 and 3 wickets respectively and Deonarine got the 2 big wickets of Clarke and Hussey.

A terrible batting collapse from Australia. They were looking good for a score of around 350 but Hussey's wicket changed the monotonous tide and the visitors lost 4/14. Overall, both teams would be satisfied with this score as neither team is ahead or behind at this moment. Australia were looking for 300 last evening, they got it this afternoon. But given the fightback Hussey and Pattinson provided, West Indies would be happy that the score did not reach 350.

134.6 K Roach to Beer, OUT! LBW! THIRD TEST 5-WICKET HAUL FOR ROACH! Wow. A dramatic collapse at the Queen's Park Oval here. Good length delivery on middle, Beer gets a long way across and looks to flick but misses and is hit on the pads. Roach appeals and umpire Erasmus raises his finger. Beer immediately reviews the decision but Hawk Eye shows the ball to be clipping the top of the stumps so the call will stay. AUSTRALIA BOWLED OUT FOR 311! TEA HAS BEEN TAKEN AS WELL. 311/10

Another review for LBW. Again the batsman has been given out....

134.5 K Roach to Beer, Full on middle, Beer flicks it through square leg for a couple. Off the mark first ball. 311/9

134.4 K Roach to Hilfenhaus, OUT! Bowled! Roach has his revenge. Good length delivery on middle, pretty quick, 141.6 kph, Hilfenhaus goes back to work it away but misses. The ball hits his pad and cannons into the stumps. Roach is all pumped up and sends Hilfenhaus on his way with a good send-off. An angry Hilfenhaus walks back for 5, AUSTRALIA 309/9! 309/9

134.3 K Roach to Hilfenhaus, FOUR! Short and wide outside off, 139.2 kph, Hilfenhaus slashed hard and got it from the bottom of the bat behind point but the ball still raced away. 309/8

133.6 Shillingford to Hilfenhaus, SAFE. Spun too much. Flighted outside off, Hilfenhaus came forward to defend but missed and was hit on the pads.

131.1 S Shillingford to J Pattinson, OUT! Caught! Pattinson goes now! Flighted on leg stump, Pattinson looks to flick this across the line but plays this way too early. The ball turns, goes off the leading edge and is high in the air. Barath runs back from silly point and Bravo comes in from cover, oops, nearly a collision but Bravo hangs on to the catch. He is not happy with Barath and has a few words to say, the keeper now consoles him. End of a resilient 32 from Pattinson, AUSTRALIA 297/8! 297/8

130.2 N Deonarine to Hussey, OUT! Caught! Deonarine gets the breakthrough! Once again, just when Australia were looking to assume control, they lose a wicket and it is the man with the golden arm, Narsingh Deonarine. Flighted wide outside off, Hussey goes for the drive but it is a pretty careless one, without moving his feet and does not keep the ball down either. It goes straight to Brathwaite at short cover who takes it with ease. Surprising from Hussey, loss of concentration. He is frustrated with himself but departs for a terrific 73 and at long last, the 89-run stand is broken. AUSTRALIA 297/7! 297/7

129.6 S Shillingford to Pattinson, Full and down the leg side, Pattinson works it through fine leg. Fidel Edwards charges on to the ball but Pattinson takes him on and hares back for the second.

125.4 S Shillingford to Hussey, BEATEN! Floated outside off, Hussey lunges forward to defend but the ball bounces and spins past the off stump!

Fidel Edwards to start off proceedings after the break. Hussey to face. This stand is worth 59 from 124 balls. 54 overs left in the day. All set! Here we go!

Are my eyes deceiving me? It was absolutely pouring down a couple of hours ago but now it is bright and sunny. Pretty clear. Welcome back. We are all set for play to resume.

Another tweet from Digicel Cricket, "West Indies team are warming up on the field, the covers are off the pitch and play will resume at 2.10 pm ECT."

Finally some good news! Digicel Cricket tweets, "Well the sun is out, the umpires are on the field inspecting and the covers are coming off SLOWLY! Wi may have cricket soon!"

It is still drizzling out there and the covers are firmly in place. We're in for a delayed start folks. Stay tuned for the latest updates...

And indeed it's lunch on day 2! West Indies once again impressed with some tight bowling and didn't allow the batsmen to score freely. The hosts got rid of Wade early but since then Hussey and Pattinson have batted sensibly and now are amidst a 59-run stand. Mr Cricket has reached yet another half-century in Test cricket but is fortunate to be still out there. Carlton Baugh missed his stumping chance off Shillingford otherwise it would have been a completely different story, who knows. Join us in a while for the afternoon session and let's hope that the rain eases out by that time...

In fact the umpires have decided to call for covers as a precautionary step. The players are heading off the field and it looks like it will be lunch.

111.6 D Sammy to Pattinson, Pitches it full outside off, Pattinson has nothing to do with it. Once again there is a slight drizzle in the air. 267/6

If we see a lead of 54, it looks quite small but believe me on this deck, which is turning square, it's a handy lead to have. Australia would look to bat sensibly and pile on a big total on the board. The openers will be out soon, stay tuned...

Right then, Australia took just four balls to dismantle the last pair and have earned a vital lead of 54 runs. Once again Chanderpaul was the mainstay of the Windies batting, stroking a fluent 94 and was involved in an enthralling 130-run stand with Deonarine(55). The wicket of the latter triggered a collapse and West Indies lost six wickets for 27. Nathan Lyon was the chief destroyer with a five-for and impressed one and all.

104.4 Beer to Baugh, OUT! LBW! Slow loopy delivery angling into the batsman, it lands on leg and spins away gently after pitching, Baugh tries to sweep it across the line but misses and is hit on the pads.

Appeal for an LBW! Turned down! It is referred by Clarke...

Darren Sammy into the attack now.

104.5 S Shillingford to Hussey, Driven towards the mid on region. No run. 247/6

104.4 S Shillingford to Hussey, Played that off the front foot and into the ground. 247/6

104.3 S Shillingford to Hussey, It's safe! A superb delivery, tossed up on off and spun away with some extra bounce. Hussey jumped out of the crease and tried to push inside the line. He was beaten comprehensively but Baugh fumbled while collecting it. He recovered well to collect the ball and removed the bails as well. But that fumble initially allowed Hussey to come back. A stumping chance went a-begging! 247/6

Appeal for a stumping! It is referred upstairs.

104.2 S Shillingford to Hussey, Once again Shillingford bowls it slower through the air and puts it on a full length on off. Hussey defends it to silly point. 247/6

104.1 S Shillingford to Hussey, Slow loopy off-spinner on middle, defended off the front foot by Hussey. 247/6

Time to get underway! The players are out to the middle. David Warner and Ed Cowan are the Aussie openers. Fidel Edwards to run in with the new ball.

West Indies - Adrian Barath, Kraigg Brathwaite, Kieran Powell, Darren Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Narsingh Deonarine, Carlton Baugh(w), Darren Sammy(c), Fidel Edwards, Kemar Roach, Shane Shillingford.

Australia - David Warner, Ed Cowan, Shane Watson, Ricky Ponting, Michael Clarke, Michael Hussey, Matthew Wade, James Pattinson, Ben Hilfenhaus, Michael Beer, Nathan Lyon.

Toss - Australia have won the toss and elected to bat! West Indies have made a couple of changes in their playing XI. Shane Shillingford and Kieran Powell replace Devendra Bishoo and Kirk Edwards. Inclusion of Shillingford is more of a tactical change as the Australians have struggled against an off-spin bowler in the past and Bishoo also struggled in the last Test. The visitors also have two changes, James Pattinson and Michael Beer come in place of Peter Siddle and Ryan Harris.

Pitch - The wicket is a lot brown in colour with some grass patches and bare patches too. There will be variable bounce.

Greetings to all our viewers and thank you for tuning in to the coverage of the second Test match between West Indies and Australia at the Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain. It was a grueling first Test with the hosts faring well for most part but a bad hour on day 4 turned the tide against them. Australia, on the other hand, would be relieved to come out of the last game unscathed and would be hoping for a much improved performance. Sit back and enjoy the contest...

Out come the players on the field! Edwards and Baugh are the overnight batsmen. Beer to start off the proceedings...

Pitch - The wicket still has some spin in it. Cracks are a fraction bigger. It is similar like it was yesterday, good for spinners but batsmen can survive.

Nathan Lyon - "Just tried to be patient, enjoyed bowling and tried to hung in there. We did the hard work but have to be patient. I just stick to my strength and wicket here are supporting. I have been lucky to do some batting drills with Ricky Ponting. It's going to be very important day for us today and we will work hard and look to make progress in the game.

Warm welcome to all our viewers for the fourth day of the second Test match at the Queen's Park Oval. It was a massive turnaround for the Aussies yesterday as Nathan Lyon shone with the ball after the rain spell and picked up his second Test five-wicket haul, thereby changing the complete complexion of the match. The hosts still have a deficit of 59 runs and they would hope that the last pair of Edwards and Baugh eat up most of the runs. Australia, on the other hand, would look to claim the last wicket quickly and start their second innings. Time could be a factor and with rain around, any result is possible.

Day 4, first session...

That's it from us then! Australia will hope to avert any sort of a dodgy stand from this last-wicket pair tomorrow morning and look to wrap things up quickly. West Indies will look to delay the same. Tomorrow is another early start and play gets underway at 1330 GMT (1900 IST). Until then, on behalf of the commentators and scorers, Adios! Take Care!

But then, Lyon bowled a beauty to Deonarine to have him stumped and ran through the lower order, taking 5 wickets in the space of 15 runs and 31 balls. He has kept Australia in front as of now, with the Windies trailing by 59 runs with a wicket in hand. Baugh and Edwards are at the crease and it will be interesting to see if they can offer a fight, after the tail did so well at Barbados.

A fine end to the day by Australia. They were worried when Chanderpaul and Deonarine were going along nicely, but they hung in there. The second new ball did not provide any breakthroughs and Hilfenhaus and Pattinson were struggling. Things went from bad to worse as Pattinson went off the field due to a back injury and Watson started to walk gingerly as well.

103.6 N Lyon to C Baugh, Mix-up.....but safe in the end. Tossed up outside off, Baugh drives it towards mid off and sets off for the single. However, Edwards has not taken a start and Baugh has to get back. STUMPS ON DAY 3! 252/9

100.5 S Shillingford to Hussey, Four byes! Lovely delivery, pitching full on middle and spinning away viciously past the batsman's bat. It beats not only Hussey but the keeper and the first slip fielder too. A boundary behind the wickets. 240/6

99.1 N Lyon to Roach, OUT! That is an unlucky dismissal! Second Test 5-wicket haul for Lyon! Lucky break for Australia. Landed outside off, spinning down, 85 kph, Roach looks to work it to the leg side but misses and Wade collects. Nothing from the keeper but Lyon appeals and umpire Gould raises his finger! Well, Roach is not happy and replays are not that conclusive either. In one angle, it seems as if the ball hit the bat but in another it seems as if the ball hit his pad! Roach departs for 0, WEST INDIES 249/9! 249/9

Plenty of blue sky at the moment and hopefully there will be no further delay. Meanwhile, Shane Shillingford comes into the attack for the first time this morning.

99.4 K Roach to Hussey, FOUR! Uppish but safe... Roach puts it on a length outside off, Hussey gets on the front foot and drives it in the air towards covers. Barath manning that region dives full length to his right but fails to get his hands to it. The ball races away to the fence. 229/6

Digicel Cricket tweets, "Rain has stopped. Hopefully we can resume soon. Stumps back in the ground."

The rain has arrived earlier than anticipated! The players are rushing off the field and the groundsmen are bringing out the covers. The drizzle is quite heavy at the moment but the conditions have started to brighten up already. Maybe just a passing shower. Stay tuned for the latest updates...

98.3 F Edwards to Pattinson, Aahhh... another jaffa from the bowler but still he fails to produce an edge.

Pattinson commits himself on the front foot, looks to drive it through covers but is beaten by the away movement. 219/6

98.2 F Edwards to Hussey, Straighter delivery, Hussey leans across and caresses it off his pads through mid-wicket. They run quickly and complete three runs. 219/6

97.5 K Roach to Pattinson, Again beats the outside edge. Frustrating for the bowler. It was wide and full outside off, Pattinson tried to drive it through the line and missed. 214/6

97.4 K Roach to Pattinson, A peach of a delivery. Unplayable! It's full on middle and nipping away after pitching. The batsman leans forward for defense but the ball curls away and whizzes past the edge. 214/6

But the ball bounces sharply and takes the inside edge towards short leg where Cowan dives to his left and takes a clean catch. The Aussies celebrate but Shillingford does not go.

91.6 N Lyon to Shillingford, FOUR! This is action-packed batting! The lower order is not going to hang around to defend. If it is up there, it has got to go - Caribbean mantra. Flighted outside off, Shillingford follows that mantra to perfection and smashes it over mid off for a boundary to get off the mark. 10 runs and a wicket from the over. 241/7

91.5 N Lyon to Shillingford, The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. 237/7

Shane Shillingford walks in at number 9, replacing Sammy. West Indies trail by 74 runs with 3 wickets in hand.

91.4 N Lyon to Sammy, OUT! Caught! Straight to the man! Waste of a wicket from Sammy. Flighted outside off, 84.5 kph, Sammy looks to go over the top and hits it straight down the ground.

Flighted on middle, 87.7 kph, Chanderpaul comes forward to defend but misses and is hit on the pads. Lyon appeals and umpire Gould raises his finger after a long thought. No reviews left for the Windies but that was plumb. A magnificent knock from Chanderpaul comes to a close. He was dropped on 8, mind you, has made a world of a difference. WEST INDIES 231/6! 231/6

West Indies have taken the second new ball straightaway and Fidel Edwards will steam in from the Brian Lara Pavilion End. Here we go...

Right then, the players are making their way out to the middle. Michael Hussey and Matthew Wade are the overnight batsmen.

Pitch - The cracks have opened up little bit more and there are a few footmarks too. Interestingly, some green grass has grown overnight, very unusual but it won't effect the pitch much. A typical wicket and will be hard to bat on.

Weather - 35 percent chance of rain today and they are expecting it during the lunch break. Currently, it is bright and sunny!

Australia will not be too disappointed with the start and would look to score as many runs as possible in the first innings. Scoring will not be easy here and West Indies would also aim to fold the Australian innings quickly today morning. For the moment, both sides are even-stevens and the first session will decide where this Test match is heading. Promises to be another grueling day!

Warm welcome to all our viewers for the second day of the Test match at the Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain. Yesterday we witnessed a riveting contest between bat and ball on a slow wicket and the hosts did pretty well to keep the Aussie run rate in check with some tight bowling. Shane Shillingford impressed in his comeback game and troubled the opposition with his off-spin prowess. He will be the key on this dying wicket.

Day 2, first session...

That's it from us then! The second new ball will be the key tomorrow. If West Indies manage to break this partnership, they can wind this up pretty quickly. On the other hand, if Hussey and Wade hang around for a bit, they can get some runs too. Join us at 1400 GMT (1930 IST) for all the second day's play. Until then, on behalf of the commentators and scorers, Adios! Take Care!

The top order got starts, with Ponting continuing to struggle again and Clarke threw his wicket away. Hussey and Wade have batted well to ensure that they are unseparated. Roach was brilliant, picking up 2 wickets while Shillingford accounted for 2 as well.

End of a hardworking day for Australia. They won the toss and elected to bat but their batsmen immediately found it pretty hard to score runs. Warner and Cowan started off nicely but once the ball got older, they found it tough.

The ball goes quickly to Cowan at short leg who is late in reacting and the ball goes off his left hand towards mid-wicket. Sharp chance, it either sticks or it doesn't. Remember, Barath pulled off a stinger at shrt leg to dismiss Watson in a similar manner. 230/5

Flighted beautifully outside off, 86.1 kph, Deonarine is drawn forward into the drive but he comes far too much outside the crease. Is beaten in the flight and Wade completes an easy stumping. Deonarine's back foot is nowhere near even getting back in. A fine knock of 55 comes to an end and the massive 130-run stand is broken. WEST INDIES 230/5! 230/5

Yippeeee!!!!! We are all set to play! The players are back in the middle. 28 overs are left for the day. It has gone slightly brighter out there but there are some clouds around. In fact, plenty of clouds.

GOOD NEWS! The rain has stopped and the sun is shining brightly. The ground staff are working feverishly to get the water off the covers. So we should get some play soon.

The rain seems to have eased out into a drizzle. The umpires are coming out to inspect. It has gone brighter.

UPDATE - Still raining. Pretty heavily too.

The covers are coming in from all directions and we get news from the locals that it might rain all afternoon. Hmm...stay tuned for updates.

Oh dear...the heavens have opened up and it is literally pouring down! This does not look good. Not good at all. The clouds are closing in from the mountains and it is looking pretty dark. The players walk off the field. Australia look very dejected and the camera just pans on Ponting getting his arm around Lyon to console. A terrific session so far for West Indies, scoring 56/0 in 14.3 overs.

Good first delivery from warner, tossed up on leg stump, turning in, Deonarine comes forward to defend but misses and is hit on the pads. Warner is pretty confident and appeals but it is turned down. Warner wants the review but Clarke is not convinced. He trusts his keeper and the bowler and goes for the review and Hawk Eye confirms his worst fears. Missing leg stump. 182/4

Michael Hussey arrives at the crease.

65.1 N Deonarine to M Clarke, OUT! Clarke throws his wicket away and is distraught with himself. Not a wicket taking delivery by any sort of imagination. It's a long hop on middle, asking to be hit. Clarke would have dispatched it to any part of the park but unfortunately he pulls it straight in the air at deep mid-wicket. Shillingford in the deep rushes forward and almost overruns the chance but does well eventually to take the catch. Australia four down for 167 and the end of an 84-run stand too. 167/4

Shane Watson is back on. 4-1-4-0 so far. This stand is worth 60 from 133 balls. West Indies have scored 28/0 in 5 overs this morning. They trail by 151 runs. 59 overs left in the day.

63.4 J Pattinson to Deonarine, Closer to the off stump this time, left alone again. 158/4

63.3 J Pattinson to Deonarine, He lost complete control of that ball. Full toss miles outside off, almost out of the pitch, Deonarine lets it go. Pattinson is lucky not to be wided. He is having a nightmare since Lunch. 158/4

63.5 K Roach to Clarke, FOUR! Glorious! Just a tad over-pitched delivery around off, Clarke gets on the front foot and unfurls a well timed off drive. The mid off fielder has no chance of cutting it off and it races away. 165/3

63.4 K Roach to Watson, Flicks it off his pads to the on side and gets a single. Had he missed that, he was plumb in front! 161/3

63.3 K Roach to Watson, Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 160/3

63.3 K Roach to Watson, No ball called for waist high full toss! That one slipped out of Roach's hands and he served a full toss. Watson defended it somehow to the on side. 160/3

62.1 N Lyon to Deonarine, Full outside off, comes forward and defends. 153/4

62.6 S Shillingford to Clarke, It's safe! The impact is outside off and the on-field decision is over ruled. Shillingford serves a full floated delivery on off and it spins back into the batsman sharply. Clarke is beaten by the over spin and is struck on the pads as he was on the back foot. Hawk Eye suggests the impact to be outside off. Lucky boy, Pup! 159/3

Appeal for an LBW! The finger goes up and Clarke takes the referral...

62.5 S Shillingford to Clarke, Bowls it a shade short outside off and it turns in a hint too. Clarke goes on the back foot for the cut shot but misses. 159/3

Nathan Lyon to start off proceedings after Lunch. 16-5-35-0 so far. Chanderpaul to face. All set! Here we go!

Welcome to a slightly overcast afternoon at the Queen's Park Oval. Attritional morning today and we hope for some positive stuff in this session. The Australians walk out to the middle after a bit of a pep talk from Clarke. The batsmen follow them.

Day 3, session 2.....

A master-stroke from Clarke to bring Hussey on and it worked. The deficit is now 179 and the Aussies will look for continuous breakthroughs in the second session, else it could turn out to be a long grinding day for them. Join us back at 1640 GMT (2210 IST) after the break.

Chanderpaul and Deonarine have added 32 runs so far but they have not been allowed to score at will and only towards the dying stages of that session were they a touch positive. That dropped catch of Chanderpaul is turing out to be a costly one for Australia and could be a decisive factor in this game. The bowling was not good in general but it did well towards the end.

Some drama towards the end of the session but a good one for both sides. West Indies started off positively this morning after a slight delay in the form of Chanderpaul and Bravo. Australia then bounced back with the wicket of Bravo and have not taken the foot off the pedal since.

59.6 M Beer to Chanderpaul, SAFE! A risk on the last ball before Lunch but all is well that ends well. Full on middle, Chanderpaul comes down the track and pushes it wide of mid on and calls for a quick single. Deonarine is late in responding and the fielder throws it towards Wade who takes the bails off and appeals. It is referred upstairs and replays show that Deonarine is in by a hair's breadth. LUNCH ON DAY 3! 132/4

Run out appeal against Deonarine! Referred upstairs....

44.4 F Edwards to Watson, Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. Sammy and Baugh are now sharing a few words behind the wickets and the former flashes his glee. Probably, the keeper asks him to listen to him next time before rushing to take a referral! 112/3

44.3 F Edwards to Watson, Watson has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 112/3

44.2 F Edwards to Watson, It's safe! Length delivery pitched on middle and it went on with the angle, Watson failed to flick and was hit on the pads. They appealed but it was turned down immediately. Sammy reviewed it but the replays showed that it was heading down the leg side. A review wasted by West Indies! Well, the keeper was in the best position to see that but Sammy didn't even look to Baugh and after chatting with his bowler signaled for the referral. Poor call from Sammy! 112/3

Appeal for an LBW! The umpire shakes his head and Sammy takes the review....

Narsingh Deonarine to bat now at number 6, replacing Bravo. Just 12 more to avoid the follow-on.

Narsingh Deonarine to bat now.

The wicket of Bravo has coincided with the drinks break. A good morning for West Indies until then, scoring 51 runs in 16.5 overs. Bravo and Chanderpaul steadied things out pretty well but that wicket of Bravo will boost the visitors.

42.5 Hussey to Bravo, OUT! LBW! The man with the golden arm strikes for Australia! Full and straight, 113.8 kph, Bravo looks to defend but misses and the ball hits his back pad. Hussey appeals and umpire Erasmus raises his finger almost instantaneously. Hussey is pumped up and the Aussies celebrate. Bravo is disappointed and walks back slowly to Chanderpaul, asks about the review and after a long chat, goes for it. Haw Eye shows him to be dead plumb. Bravo begins his long walk back to the pavilion, he departs for 38 and the 62-run stand is broken. WEST INDIES 100/4! 100/4

Bravo has been given out LBW and he has asked for a review.

42.4 M Hussey to Chanderpaul, Flicks it away for a single. 100/3

39.1 J Pattinson to Bravo, Oohhh....length delivery outside off, 136.5 kph, Bravo goes for the cut but the ball does not bounce as high and he gets a thick inside edge onto his pads. What is more, he nearly gets it back on to the stumps courtesy off his bat in his follow-through. 83/3

Some sight-screen issue here and Clarke is complaining to the umpire.

38.5 F Edwards to Clarke, Edwards once again bowls a length delivery wide outside off, Clarke this time shows no intention of flirting with it. 103/3

38.4 F Edwards to Clarke, Straighter delivery, worked off the pads to mid-wicket. Had he missed that he was a plumb LBW candidate! 103/3

36.5 K Roach to Watson, FOUR! How to describe that shot? Maybe, a front foot cut! Roach offers room outside off, Watson commits himself on the front foot and after watching the room cuts it from that position only. No third man in place and the ball screams away to the boundary. 102/3

36.4 K Roach to Watson, Gets behind the line of the delivery and defends it back to the bowler. 98/3

36.3 K Roach to S Watson, FOUR! Short ball is not working well on this extremely slow pitch. Watson swivels on the back foot and times his pull shot well. The placement is exquisite and in spite of a fielder in the deep the ball races away to the fence at mid-wicket. 98/3

36.2 K Roach to Watson, Shifts his weight on the front foot and drives it to covers. 94/3

33.5 S Shillingford to Watson, Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 87/3

33.4 S Shillingford to Watson, Appeal for an LBW! A quick off-spinner, not spinning much but gets the batsman in a tangle. Watson initially gets on the front foot but then shifts back to defend.

32.4 K Roach to Clarke, Outside off, steered to point. 83/3

Michael Clarke is the new batsman out to the middle.

32.3 K Roach to R Ponting, OUT! Roach gets the prized scalp of Ponting. He produces a gem of a delivery, on middle and off at 142.1 kph and it seams away gently to square up the batsman in defense. Ricky is opened up and the outside edge flies behind the stumps. Baugh gets his gloves to it but the ball pops out of his hands. Sammy at first slip shows good awareness to snap it on the rebound. Kemar Roach is all pumped up and West Indies are celebrating. Really, a massive breakthrough for them and Australia are in a spot of bother at 83/3! 83/3

Good news, it has stopped raining and the covers are coming off. The players are now making their way out to the middle. Shillingford to bowl...

Welcome back for the post lunch session. I am afraid to inform you that it is still drizzling out there and at the moment the groundsmen are bringing out the big covers to protect the playing area. Michael Holding (on air) feels that it is just a passing shower and the match should get underway soon. But from the live visuals that I am seeing on TV, there is a thick cloud covering over the ground and it is looking threatening. Stay tuned for the latest updates...

Day 1, second session...

Digicel Cricket tweets, "It's raining here at Queens Park Oval. Hopefully it will pass soon!"

Fine morning session for West Indies! However, the Australian openers started well by scoring with the rate close to 4 RPO, the home side bounced back to remove both the openers and will be satisfied with the proceedings so far. The visitors now hope for some steady partnership between Ponting and Watson to avoid getting into an embarrassing position. The wicket has nothing for the fast bowlers but Shillingford was threatening in his spell. Looking forward to his contest with Ponting and Watson after the break. Join us in a while for the afternoon session...

UPDATE - We get more news. According to the ICC playing conditions, the match CAN and SHOULD continue without DRS and Australia have now been informed. That means play will begin soon! In fact, as I am typing this, the umpires are taking the field now. West Indies are ready to come, Australia should walk out soon. In fact, the players are taking the field now.

UPDATE - We get news that apparently the problem is with the TV coverage and Australian captain Michael Clarke made the decision to leave the field until the situation was resolved. Well, not too sure why he would do that. With such bad weather forecasted and a good sunny morning, is it advisable to stay off the field under clear skies when there is a match to be won? Sigh. Stay tuned for more updates....

UPDATE - We get news that apparently the problem is with the TV coverage and Australian captain Michael Clarke made the decision to leave the field until the situation was resolved. Well, not too sure why he would do that. With such bad weather forecasted and a good sunny morning, is it advaisable to stay off the field under clear skies when there is a match to be won? Sigh. Stay tuned for more updates....

Oh dear...we just receive some bad news. There is an internal power problem at Queens Park Oval, so there will be NO REFERRALS till power is restored. The teams are leaving the field! Sigh! Stay tuned for updates, we will let you know as soon as we get any.

The players are out in the middle. Michael Beer to finish his pending over from last evening. Bravo to face. All set! Here we go!

WEATHER - Rain marred proceedings for most of yesterday and today there are some predictions of showers as well, but right now, it is bright and sunny. 98 overs to be bowled today and hope we get most, if not all of them.

Hello and a warm welcome to the third day's play between West Indies and Australia at Trinidad! After a slow first day, yesterday was a bit of an action-packed one, seeing 8 wickets fall. Australia were restricted to 311, but after that the visitors managed to nip out three top order wickets of West Indies. As usual, Chanderpaul is the main man for the hosts and his team will hope that he and Bravo get a good start this morning. Australia will be looking for wickets, wickets and wickets and a big lead. Sit back and enjoy the proceedings!

Day 3, session 1....

The deficit for West Indies is 262 and they require 63 more to avoid the follow-on. The pitch is a Bunsen Burner wicket, turning square and that too with variable bounce. It is not going to be easy batting on this strip. Promises to be an interesting day 3. Join us at 1330 GMT (1900 IST) to catch all the action. Until then, cheers!!!

The big covers are coming on the field and THAT WILL BE STUMPS ON DAY 2! A good day in the office for Australia, first they batted sensibly to take their first innings total beyond the 300-run mark and then have claimed three top West Indian wickets. Kemar Roach was the stand out performer today with a five-for on a dead wicket and he should be given credit for bowling his heart out.

Right then, the players are walking off the field owing to bad light. It has gone gloomy out there and the chances of light improving now is very unlike. Waiting for the official call, whether it's stumps or not!!

The umpire shakes his head. Almost the entire West Indian side is standing around with Sammy having a chat with his bowler. They contemplate about taking the review but by the time the West Indian skipper signals for it, the time had ran out. Replays show the impact to be with the on-field call! 65/2

24.3 K Roach to Cowan, OUT! LBW! Roach dishes out a fuller length delivery around off and it goes on with the angle. Cowan looks to play it across the line by getting half forward only and misses. He is struck on the pads and they all go up in a vociferous appeal. The umpire raises his finger and the batsman after discussing with his partner takes the review. Hawk Eye shows that the impact is with the on-field umpire and the decision is upheld. Australia two down for 65 with both openers dismissed. 65/2

Appeal for an LBW! The finger goes up and Cowan takes the review...

15.1 J Pattinson to Powell, OUT! LBW! The batsman didn't ask for the review and you know what? It was pitched outside leg! A length delivery at 140.3 kph, going on with the angle and staying a shade low as well. Powell stays glued inside the crease and attempts to play it across the line.

1.4 Hilfenhaus to Brathwaite, Howzzat? Once again Hilfy angles it into the batsman and the ball nips away gently after pitching. Brathwaite is lazy with his footwork, tries to defend it from the crease but misses. They appeal but the impact is well outside off. 0/0

0.6 F Edwards to Warner, Drama! A terrific delivery pitched around off and nipped back in to beat the defense of Warner. It hit him on the pads and the ball lobbed behind the stumps. The keeper collected it and they all went up in a huge appeal. Umpire Erasmus raised his finger after thinking for a while. But hang on, Sammy intervened and withdrew the appeal as it didn't carry to Baugh. Boy o boy, they appealed for a caught behind but it was a plumb LBW. The umpire changed his decision and Warner gets a life. Edwards is bemused! 4/0
