    West Indies are 145 for 4 at lunch

    Bravo has had to retire hurt with concussion but he has been replaced by Blackwood who has 33 from 46 balls.

    Another 323 needed.

      193 for 8 won't be long now unless.......

        All out for 210, India win by 267 and win the Series 2-0.

          Australia won the toss, batted and are 98 for 2 at Lunch.

          Warner lasted two balls and Harris was out with the score 28 for 2 but Smith (28 no) and Labuschagne (48 no) are set at this stage.

          It has just stopped raining but more is on the way so there hasn't been any play since Lunch.

            170 for 3 at ( a very late ) tea and it's raining again.

            Labuschagne is gone for 67 but Smith is there on 60 no and shows no signs of going anywhere any time soon.

              No more play after Tea. Only 44 overs were bowled today.

                Root is taking a lot of flack from the media. Didn't see much but it seems he never gave Archer a cut off Smith.
                He's a guy who gets up at six o'clock in the morning regardless of what time it is.

                  Oz needed to win that toss after the disastrous manner of losing the last test. Going good presently at 320/5 with Smith on 145 n.o. If they can get 500 they should win this match and secure the ashes though the weather might intervene.

                    They declared 45 minutes before the close on 497 for 8 (Smith 211).

                    England made 23 for 1.

                      England were all out for 301, 196 behind.

                      In reply, Australia are 63 for 4 at Tea, 259 ahead. EDIT Warner bagged himself a pair.

                      Smith is still there.

                      After the last Test, you'd imagine that they will try and bat England out of the game.

                        They'd like a bowl at England tonight but as you said they don't want to give then anything reachable. Light is getting bad at 7 pm so they need to get the skates on. If Smith stays in I think they'll have enough to put England in for about 10 overs. Win this and the ashes are retained.

                          Smith is OUT!. Unluckily hit the ball so hard it ricocheted back off the sky and into an England hand
                          Looks like they are in slog mode now. Another quick 40 and we'll see England in.

                            And the declaration comes on 186 for 6, leaving England to get 383 to win in a day plus a nervous forty minutes tonight.

                              They won't get that. Weather forecast good. Be amazed if Australia don't win this.
