Australia were in the driver’s seat at the end of the third day’s play of the third Test match against the West Indies at Dominica. Day four begins 1.00am AEST on Friday morning.

Eight wickets fell during the third day of the third Test match on a track that showed signs of slowing up a little.

West Indies extended their score from 8/120 on the second day to end on 218 before Australia ended day three at 6/200.

This gives Australia an overall lead of 310, which should be enough runs on a fourth-day track at Dominica.

Michael Hussey and Ryan Harris, who are at the crease, and the remaining three Australian batsmen to follow however, will look to extend the West Indian target up to 400 that should allow them to dictate terms in the fourth innings.

After Shivnarine Chanderpaul’s resistance in the first innings was ended some half hour before the lunch break, Australia lost an early wicket of Dave Warner to an outside edge to Kemar Roach.

Immediately after the break, Shane Shillingford grabbed his first of the innings and seventh of the game to send back Shane Watson, caught at short-leg. Australia were 2/25 at this stage and in trouble.

It was a third wicket stand between the two beleaguered batsmen on this tour, Ed Cowan and Ricky Ponting that pulled the visitors out of trouble.

Both scored half-centuries with similar strike-rates and added 87 for the third wicket.

After Narsingh Deonarine had sent Cowan back, further resistance from Michael Clarke took Australia to 3/168.

Then Roach had Ponting yet again, off a bouncer, Shillingford added to his tally by dismissing Clarke and Deonarine trapped first-innings centurion Matthew Wade lbw to peg Australia back a little.

Still, with the lead having grown to 310 and with the Australian lower-order having shown signs of wagging almost every time they have been at the wicket, the visitors will be favourites at this stage.

We will bring you the coverage throughout this third Test match of the series between West Indies and Australia from Dominica and hope to receive your opinions as the action unfolds from 1.00am AEST.

    And that is the end of Day’s play. Good resistance shown by West Indies in the last one and half sessions. Chanderpaul getting yet another half century during the course of which he reached 10,000 Test runs. But those two late wickets have set them back, and a defeat is imminent.

    Clarke was the star of the bowling show getting three important wickets, as Lyon disappointed.

    Barring a miracle or a thunderstorm Australia should wrap up the series with a 2-0 scoreline. Join us tommorrow for live commentary.

    OUT!

    He has got the big fish. Chanderpaul goes in the last over of the day.

    This is a huge huge wicket. Clarke gets his third wicket.

    That will be so deflating for the home side. Chanderpaul goes for 69.

    Appeal!

    Turned down. They review it.

    Deonarine digs deep to play out the over from Watson. Just two off it.

    4/173

    Deonarine looks quite okay out there. They need less than 200 now.

    4/171

    Clarke comes on four a last couple of overs. He has been far more effective than Lyon today.

    This will be a test for Deonarine.

    Four!

    Flicked off the pads by Deonarine. He looks at ease as off now.

    Lyon’s bowled a fair number of short balls today. The left handers have been happy to get some easy runs.

    Steadier stuff in this over though. 4 overs to negate.

    4/163

    Bravo looks forlorn as he stands with his head resting on the wall. He still has not got his pads off. Thinking of what could have been.

    Just when they started seeing a glimmer of hope, he nicked one.

    Watson gives two runs in his over.

    4/161

    Four!

    Hit uppishly and in the air, but well placed. Slow and short from Lyon, turning away. Chanders gets himself another four runs by cutting it through the offside.

    4/159

    This is going to be a tough time for WI now. They lose wickets in clumps more often than not. Lets see how they hold on for the last 7 overs.
