  • Description

    The West Indies lost the fourth test match against Australia at Sydney by seven wickets on Wednesday (7 January), with more than a day to spare.

    The West Indies are now trailing by one match to three and need to win the remaining two tests to square the series.

    In the West Indies second innings, batsman fell not to the hook stroke as on Monday (5 January) but to mistakes outside the off stump.

    There were two good catches by Marsh and a beautiful low one at third slip by Redpath.

    Rows failed early in his innings, Lloyd squandered a careful start, but Murray showed tremendous application before being bowled by Thomson for an even fifty.

    Rowe was some way from the line when Thomson, in his second over of the morning, made one move from leg to off.

    Marsh, diving to his right, held the catch. Then Holding, the night watchman was disposed of, bringing the West Indies total to 5 for 52. Lloyd and Murray added 43.

    They stayed together for 90 minutes after which Lloyd chases an outswinger from Thomson and was caught by Marsh.

    Of the fast bowlers in the match, Thomson was the fastest and eventually the best.

    The West Indies were all out for 128, giving Australia 79 to win. Australia knocked up the runs at a cost of three wickets, Kallicharran, Boyce and Holding getting one each.
