West Indies 312 & 308/9 (91 ov) need another 51 runs with 1 wicket remaining to defeat Australia 520/7d & 150 (51.3 ov): T3 D4 at Perth
Neither Chris Gayle (21) nor Travis Dowlin (22) nor Ramnaresh Sarwan (11) nor Dwayne Bravo (1) contributed much to the West Indies second innings, but Narsingh Deonarine (82/171b,2x6,10x4) and Brendan Nash (65/183b, 7x4) did, and in doing so gave Australia cause for concern by batting resolutely (perhaps, in Nash's case it could be said, too resolutely) through the afternoon session and beyond.
It was a great struggle - I say was because nobody in their right mind would believe that nos 10 and 11 can score another 51 runs against a refreshed attack tomorrow. Even surviving today, which the Australians extended by an extra half hour to try to claim a victory, will gain the Windies a few points with cricket followers and give the home team cause to reflect. There is no doubt which side has improved the most since the first day of the series.
