Aussies well placed in Dominica
Australia were in the driving seat at lunch on day three of the third Test against West Indies after dismissing the hosts for 218 in Dominica.
Nathan Lyon finished with four for 69 with Australia eventually ending Shivnarine Chanderpaul's dogged resistance at the crease, with the veteran batsman last out and also the hosts' top scorer with 68.
It could have been far worse as West Indies were 120 for eight at one stage on Tuesday, although Australia still started their second innings with a lead of 110.
At lunch, Australia had reached 18 for one, David Warner the man out for 11.
Resuming on 165 for eight, Chanderpaul and Ravi Rampaul moved the score on to 186 before the latter was caught by Warner off the bowling of Lyon.
However, his removal could have been avoided, Rampaul trying to hit over midwicket but instead getting a thick edge with the ball looping to Warner at point.
His knock of 31 also formed part of a vital 66-run stand with Chanderpaul which had steadied matters after the team had been rocking.
Chanderpaul's 50 came when he lifted Ben Hilfenhaus over extra cover but, after moving on to 68, he was lbw to Mitchell Starc.
His knock came from 164 deliveries and contained three boundaries as the resistance of the West Indies' tail was finally ended.
Australia started their second innings with Warner and Ed Cowan at the crease but having cracked two boundaries, the former was gone before the break, caught at slip by Chanderpaul.
