  • Description

    A fine century by opening batsman Ian Redpath left Australia in a handy position after the first day's play in their fifth cricket test against the West Indies in Adelaide, south Australia, on friday (23 January).

    Redpath was finally bowled by veteran West Indies spinner lance Gibbs after he had made 103, including two towering sixes and six fours.

    Australia were 6-301 at the close of play, although they were 1-171 at one stage.

    West Indies fast bowler Vanburn Holder kept the run rate respectable with some good swing bowling and finished with figures of 4-71.

    The home side were left with two capable not out batsmen in Marsh and Gilmour, who were both 17 when stumps were drawn.

    The West Indies, already 3-1 down after four tests, must win this test to retain any chance of squaring the series.
