Bowlers Swing Opening Test Australia’s Way Heading to Final Day

Australia gained the momentum heading into the final day of the series-opening cricket Test against West Indies, which leads by 114 runs with five second-innings wickets remaining.

West Indies reached 71-5 at stumps on day four at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados, after touring captain Michael Clarke earlier declared Australia’s first innings at 406-9 with his team still trailing by 43 runs.

Ben Hilfenhaus then removed the West Indies’ top three batsmen with just four runs on the board before Ryan Harris, who earlier scored a Test-best 68 not out, had first-innings centurion Shivnarine Chanderpaul caught behind. Peter Siddle added the wicket of Dwayne Bravo.

“To declare and put them in straight away, it probably didn’t give them a chance to get their head around batting,” Harris said in a news conference. “It was a good declaration. We want to win the Test match.”

The teams are scheduled to play three Tests with matches in Trinidad and Dominica to follow.
