Harris leads Aussie fightback
Australia are favourites to win the first Test against the West Indies after an amazing fightback with bat and ball on day four.
Responding to the Windies' 449-9 declared, the Baggy Greens slipped to 285-8 and 329-9, but an amazing unbeaten knock of 68 by paceman Ryan Harris, coupled with 40 not out from number 11 Nathan Lyon, gave Michael Clarke the opportunity to declare on 406-9. And the skipper's decision to call time on their innings 43 runs in arrears certainly paid off as the tourists then reduced Darren Sammy's men to 3-2 before they rallied to end day four on 71-5. Ben Hilfenhaus was the chief destroyer, with 3-17, while Harris and Peter Siddle claimed one scalp each to leave the men from the Caribbean with just a 115-run lead with five wickets and one day remaining. Narsingh Deonarine is unbeaten on 20 and will have wicket-keeper Carlton Baugh for company on Wednesday, who had made two when time was called on Tuesday evening. Much will depend on those two and Sammy, who will no doubt look to take the attack to the opposition when he comes to the crease on day five.
