So the Man of the Match is Kemar Roach for his ten wickets in this match - a superb performance. So Australia leads 1-nil, with the Third and final Test to start on Monday.
We've just had confirmation that the match have been called off - standby for news of the Man of the Match.
As at 5am AEST the rain has lightened off a bit, but it's quite dark still, no further word on a resumption at this stage.
The latest word at 4.22 AEST is that some rain is starting to fall which may well mean we have seen the last of the cricket for the day. Hopefully that's not the case. Most updates as we get them from the ground.
I suspect that will be the official Tea break - hopefully the light will improve enough for a prompt resumption. The covers are going on, hopefully as a precaution but it does not bear well for much more play
Unfortunately Bad Light has been called - after a very animated chat between Clarke and the Umpires. The Aussies were keen to play on - obviously the West Indies the way they were playing were also. Oh well - it is dark, standby for updates!
Over 10.6: Beer to Sammy, no run, plays off the back foot to cover. WIN 2/53 (Bravo 8, Sammy 30)
