Lucky they got to use 12 batsmen or else they might have finished 315 behind.

Stumps. 1/29. Australia leads by just 344. Smith didn't manage to make any runs at all, today. I'd say that's the end of him.

Fun fact - it will be 7 years next Saturday since the West Indies last dismissed Smith in a Test.

:D

Cummins has a side strain (details as they emerge) and will not take the field.

Smith will captain, when play resumes.

Australia declared on 2/182.

Labu 104* (110), Smith 20*.

Windies need 498 to win.

Shamefully flat pitch.

The ICC need to get some former bowlers in their ranks. Guys like Holding, Geoff Lawson, ... These flat pitches will destroy the game.

But good on Oz's best batsman, Marnus Labuschagne...
Marny shoulda scored a 300 in the 1st innings. 200 was wasteful. Reminded me of Slats condemning him for scoring only 100 on a shamefully flat Brissy pitch.

Slats: "Where is the hunger?"

Yup, don't need great skill, etc. on these pitches. Just hunger.

0/109. Brathwaite 57*, Chanderpaul 42*.

Quite eerie, watching Chanders Jnr. batting. That same crablike stance and movement, when batting. :D

7/234. Lyon has 2, Head has 1 and Hazlewood 1 today.

SPD Smith has brought down an early contender for Mark of the Year, with a brilliant diving catch behind Carey to support Head's bowling. New ball taken a few overs back and Hazlewood has made good use of it. Cummins is on the field but hasn't bowled.
