Background: Cricket....and Australia won the third Test against the West Indies in Georgetown, guyana on Tuesday (4 April). They were set to make 359 to win in their second innings, and centuries by Craig Serjeant and Graeme Wood carried them to a magnificent 362 for seven. This was the highest winning fourth innings total in Tests between the two sides, and reduced the West Indies' lead in the five match series to 2-1. At tea on Monday (3 April) the Australians were 193 for three, with Serjeant not out 81 and Wood not out 94.
SYNOPSIS: Shivnarine to a confident Serjeant....four runs.
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.
Shivnarine in again...and four more runs to Serjeant.
278 for four....Serjeant had gone for a superb 124, and when play resumed the next morning it was Clarke to Laughlin... three runs and the 300.
Wood eventually went for 126, Cosier followed for a duck and it was Clarke to Rixon... two runs.
Clarke in to Laughlin, and Alvin Greenidge put down the catch.
Victory, was now sight for the Australians... Clarke bowls to Laughlin.... and another narrow escape.
The Australians started the day needing only 69 runs to win... four more to Rixon.
Holder to Laughlin....another fine four.
When the score reached 338 Laughlin fell to Parry....He had made a valuable 24.
At the other end Rixon was still going well...four more runs.
Yardley followed Laughlin.... Parry bowled, and four runs gave the Australian victory.
