ooh, there's a 6 for Lara

Would I be jinxing him if I said that maybe he's finally come to play today?

Windies are currently at 114/2. If Smith and Lara can keep this partnership going for another 50 or 100, that would bode well for the rest of this test.

i totally agree, but that said. it is the Australian who have everything to lose, and the Windies have nothing to lose but everything to prove

i hate to say, even with 30 i don’t think Lara is in form at all.... especially after his appalling performance in the world XI

in the end, go the Aussies. even with the few fresh faces i think the aussies will dominate, but there may be a turn of luck, so you cant dismiss the West Indies all together.

Currently 144/3. In the past 31 overs, West Indies have scored 68 runs. At least they're not dropping like flies. I don't know if they're playing for a draw or not, but at least they seem to be showing some patience.

As for Lara, yeah, a 30 doesn't impress me much from him. Certainly better than some of his World XI appearances though. Luckily, he's got a lot more chances to get it together down under.

Not exactly looking good here. But tomorrow's another day.

Australia leads by 430.... not looking good for the Windies....

im disapointed on Hussey's form. it was his big chance. i mean he is really good in the state comp, not so good at the international level.... oh well...

GO AU!!!

My guess is that Australia will bat for about an hour and a half or so in the morning and then declare.

The Windies should just go home now.

Really, this is disgraceful.

yeah, they may not even bat for that long.... the score is massive and im sure there worried about the rain since its been drizely. so i think there better off sending the windies in sooner rather than latter

Yes the Windies have been blown away.

I'm sorry I couldn't resist the temptation to pun.

Interesting comments from Ramdin, saying how they have a chance at winning this test thanks to their batsmen.

I think its some sort of ploy to trick Australia into batting longer, and then when the Windies bat, they'll try to hold out for the draw or hope for rain.

Lara should have retired years ago. His slump must be in about it's 10th year by now. I find this disappointing. I really like the Windies. I want them to play well. They're exciting when they play well. But I'm still living in the era when cricket was a good strong competition and we thrived on the game itself, watching countries emerge and get their acts together. It didn't matter so much, it seemed, like it does now on where they were from.
