Australia lose early wickets
Australia lost two early wickets as they sought to build on their first-innings lead over the West Indies in the second Test at Port of Spain.
The Windies' one remaining wicket fell with their total on 257, 54 in arrears.
Two wickets for Kemar Roach reduced Australia to 26 for two, which became 40 by the time rain forced an early lunch.
The hosts resumed at 252 for nine and added just five before wicketkeeper Carlton Baugh was trapped lbw on the sweep by Michael Beer for 31, a decision only given after a DRS review.
Australia openers Ed Cowan and David Warner extended their side's lead to 80 - although the former was dropped at slip by Windies captain Darren Sammy before he had scored.
Roach then struck twice in his first over, coming round the wicket to the left-handed Warner, who nicked the paceman's second delivery to slip for 17, Darren Bravo taking the low catch.
And new man Shane Watson lasted only three balls before misjudging and losing his off stump without troubling the scorers.
Ricky Ponting was fortunate to escape a run-out attempt when on nought, Fidel Edwards missing the stumps, and was then dropped by Adrian Barath off spinner Shane Shillingford on four.
Play was halted with Cowan on 14 and Ponting eight in a total of 40 for two.
