Australia victory inside three days
On Wednesday morning Australia started their protection of the Frank Worrell Trophy. By Friday evening they had held it. Such is the way of present day planning that a two-Test arrangement was all Australia and West Indies could orchestrate. Such was the way of the Roseau conditions that this shortened crusade started with a condensed match, won by Australia inside of three days.
The third and last day started with West Indies on 25 for 2 and in risk of ceding. They required 145 more to make Australia bat once more. Australia's morning started flawlessly when Darren Bravo was taken at mid-off by a jumping David Warner off Josh Hazlewood for 5. Yet, then came the muddling: Marlon Samuels and debutant Shane Dowrich ground out the most astounding association of the Test.
Their 144-run union undermined not just to take the match into a fourth day however to haul it beyond Australia's control and over into aggressive domain. Stand out wicket fell in each of the initial two sessions. Yet, then came the breakdown. After tea West Indies lost their last six wickets for 27, set Australia an objective of 47, and gave the downpour and light waited, a three-day completion was on once more.
David Warner had no goal of returning on Saturday. He pounded a four and a six off Jerome Taylor's 1st over, then added six off Shannon Gabriel in the 2nd over. Warner edged Taylor to slip for 28 with five runs still required, however Steven Smith joined Shaun Marsh and completed the occupation inside of the initial five overs of the innings, a nine-wicket win fulfilling the Australians in front of the second Test in Jamaica.
At last it looked clinical, yet there were times all through the match that West Indies were in the challenge. When they lessened Australiato 126 for 6 on the second day, they sent a few anxious minutes through the Australian camp. Be that as it may, the unbeaten 130 from debutant Adam Voges was the enormous distinction, his work with the tail giving Australia an agreeable first-innings support.
While Dowrich and Samuels were as one there were likewise bits of trust in West Indies. Both men were enduring in the morning session before turning out to be broader after lunch. Inside of the space of three balls, Samuels raised Nathan Lyon over mid-on for a four and a six, and his half-century originated from his 115th conveyance.
Dowrich additionally cleared mid-on for a six off Lyon and raised his fifty from his 153rd conveyance with a draw for four off MitchellJohnson. Before long, West Indies were over into the lead. On the off chance that Dowrich and Samuels could bat on, on the off chance that they could set up a pursuit of 150 or 200 runs, who realizes what may have happened. In any case, it was not to be. Dowrich drove Hazlewood to a receiving short mid-on for 70, and it flagged the start of the end.
After tea, the wickets started to tumble. Jermaine Blackwood progressed, missed a low full hurl from Lyon and was puzzled by Brad Haddin, who neglected to take the ball neatly yet kept his head all around ok to finish the employment. In the following over, Samuels top-edged a draw off Johnson to Hazlewood at fine leg for 74, and it was all miserable to the wicketkeeper and bowlers.
Denesh Ramdin hacked on off Lyon, Jerome Taylor was lbw for a brilliant duck to a Mitchell Starc inswinger, and a couple of overs later Starc completed the occupation by rocking the bowling alley Devendra Bishoo and Gabriel from continuous conveyances. Jason Holder was forgotten not on 12, and Australia were left with the assignment of beating the cloud and awful light on the off chance that they needed an additional vacation day between matches.
Warner verified they did only that. Every one of that was left was a Man-of-the-Match presentation for Voges on introduction, and a revising of weekend arrangements for the Dominican fans, who sensibly would have expected cricket in their nation on Saturday and Sunday. By caving in before tea on the first day having decided to bat, West Indies set themselves behind from the begin of this diversion. Furthermore, it was leeway Australia were never prone to surrender.
