  • Description

    IN THE FOURTH TEST AT BRIDGETOWN ON FRIDAY, THE WEST INDIES BEGAN A LONG HAUL AFTER AUSTRALIA DECLARED THEIR FIRST INNINGS AT 650 FOR 6.

    AUSTRALIA BEGAN THIS THIRD DAY WITH THEIR OVERNIGHT TOTAL AT 583 FOR 2. WITHOUT ANOTHER RUN ADDED, THE WEST INDIES DREW BLOOD WHEN GARY SOBERS BOWLED BOB COWPER FOR 102.

    BRIAN BOOTH, THE AUSTRALIAN VICE-CAPTAIN, SOON FOLLOWED -- BOWLED BY LANCE GIBBS FOR 5. GIBBS ALSO GOT NORMAN O'NEILL, CAUGHT BY ROHAN KANHAI FOR 51. BAPRY SHEPHERD WENT FOR 4, AND WITH GRAEME THOMAS AND NEIL HAWKE STILL AT THE CREASE, BOBBY SIMPSON DECLARED JUST BEFORE LUNCH.

    AFTER DAVID WENT FOR 8, THE WEST INDIES RAN INTO FURTHER TROUBLE WHEN OPENER CONRAD HUNTE WAS STRUCK ON THE HEAD BY A HAWKE BOUNCER. HE RETIRED UNTIL THE NEXT DAY, AND WAS REPLACED BY BASIL BUTCHER, WHO MADE ONLY 9 BEFORE BEING CAUGHT BY SIMPSON OFF O'NEILL. THE WEST INDIES WERE 99 FOR 2.

    BUT KANHAI WAS IN COMPLETE CONTROL HAMMERING THE BOWLING AT WILL. BY THE CLOSE, HE WAS UNDEFEATED AT 80, AND NEXT DAY WENT ON TO SCORE 129.

    (YESTERDAY (SATURDAY), THE WEST INDIES TOOK THEIR SCORE TO 424 FOR 3, NEEDING ONLY TO DRAW THE TEST TO WIN THE SERIES.)
