Caribbean giants West Indies face off against Oceania giants Australia on Day 3 of the first of the three-match Test series at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart on Saturday. West Indies have had a dreadful year so far, losing most of the Test series, be it home or away as they slum low in the ICC Test rankings, and look to rise up, as well as rove that they are not done yet. Australia, on the other hand, have had a good season so far, especially at home. Barring the away Ashes loss, Australia has been impressive in their previous Test series against New Zealand, thus winning the series and also look to tame the West Indies in a similar fashion.

The Windies sticky predicament was accentuated by the dismissal of skipper Jason Holder, the last of the recognised batsmen at the crease with Bravo. Holder refused to seek a referral after being struck high on the pad by Peter Siddle and walked off for 15, leaving his side in deep strife at 116 for six. Replays showed that the ball was missing the stumps and the towering Holder may have stayed on as the players left the field for a brief rain break.

The West Indies efforts were in sharp contrast to Australia’s run spree, propelled by a record 449-run fourth-wicket stand by Adam Voges and Shaun Marsh. The West Australian pair eclipsed the fourth-wicket Test record of 437 set by Sri Lankans Thilan Samaraweera and Mahela Jayawardene against Pakistan in 2009.
