    Background: Cricket...and with two days left in the fourth test between the West Indies and the touring Australia side at the Port of Spain in Trinidad, a result looks certain. The West Indies who have a two one lead in the series, have reached 280 for 9 wickets in their second innings to give them an overall lead of 282 in the match. On the first day it was West Indies who batted first in the Queens Park Oval.

    SYNOPSIS: Wayne Clark opened the bowling for Australia and after a long spell had Alvin Greenidge caught at short backward square leg by Grame Wood for 6 runs.

    David Murray who took Greenidge's place at the crease was out to a similar shot off a ball from Bruce Yardley for 4. Wood again took the catch.

    Jeff Thomson, the other opening Australian bowler, to Basil Williams who hits it to the boundary backward of square leg for 4 runs.

    Williams was particularly harsh on the fast bowling of Thomson ...this time driving through extra cover for another boundary.

    Yardley bowls to Williams, who takes the opportunity to add a further three runs to his tally after a wayward return to the stumps from Jeff Thomson.

    The Australian captain, Bobby Simpson. brought himself on to bowl to larry Gomes, but he showed little respect on this occasion
    However Simpson got his revenge. Clark bowls to Gomes and it's Simpson at first slip who takes the catch. Gomes out for 30.

    Simpson bowls to his opposing captain, Alvin Kallicharran, who strides down the pitch and off-drives for 4 runs.

    Clark to Basil Williams, who's remained at the other end and square drives for another 4 runs.

    Jim Higgs to Williams with a full toss. But Williams going for the big hit is caught in the outfield by Graham Yallop, after scoring 89 runs.

    This time Higgs to Bacchus and he's cleaned bowled for 9.

    Jeff Thomson gets a wicket after Sew Shivnarine edges a ball to Simpson in the slips Shivnarine out for 10.

    Clark claimed three wickets in the innings, this time forcing a lofty shot from Kallicharran, who's caught in the outfield for 92, the highest score of the innings.

    Soon after Thomson had Phillip caught behind for three. Australia quickly had the remaining tail-enders out for West Indies to finish the innings with a total of 292.
