At tea on Monday (3 April) the Australians were 193 for three, with Serjeant not out 81 and Wood not out 94.

Shivnarine again to Serjeant.... four runs, and that brought him his maiden Test century.
225 for three....Shivnarine again, but this time to Wood..... three more runs, and his century. Like Sejeant, it was Wood's first 100 in Test cricket and it was an innings that emphasised what a fine player he is becoming.
