Slow going for Aussies with bat
Australia were made to work hard to reach 208-5 by the West Indies attack on a slow, draining first day of the second Test at Port-of-Spain.
Choosing to bat on a dry track, Baggy Greens skipper Michael Clarke would have been hoping to be better off than 208 for five at the close.
That is what he had to settle for, though, and he will know there is much toil ahead of his men if they are to take the Test and an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
Clarke was one of just two batsmen to make any sort of impression - and even then it was thanks to a dubious referral decision - as the home bowlers choked the Australian top order.
Only Shane Watson (56) raised his bat, with Clarke (45) the second-highest scorer as Shane Shillingford's slow right-armers caused them a number of problems.
In fact, the trouble started inside the opening over when David Warner was given an almighty reprieve.
The free-hitting left-hander was pinned in front of his off stump by Fidel Edwards and, when umpire Marais Erasmus raised his finger, few were surprised.
However, after the pads had been rapped, the ball flew behind the stumps to Carlton Baugh, who caught the ball on the bounce as it dropped just short of him.
Confused West Indies captain Darren Sammy thought Edwards had gone up for a caught behind and told Erasmus and withdrew the appeal, meaning Warner stayed at the crease.
He went on to add 25 runs to the four he had at the time, before he holed out to a grateful Sammy at slip when he chased one from Shillingford.
Ed Cowan then followed for 28 when a Kemar Roach ball kept low and hit him just above the ankle, with ex-skipper Ricky Ponting joining him back in the pavilion just after lunch.
Roach drew some extra pace out of the pitch and tucked the Tasmanian up, with Sammy pouching another after Baugh had initially fumbled Ponting's edge.
Clarke and Watson then came together and put on an 84-run stand, although it should have ended before it did.
Shillingford trapped Clarke with a length ball, beating him in the flight. Clarke reviewed the decision, seemingly out of hope but, even though the replays looked as though he would lose his off stump, the projection system said otherwise.
Clarke would add little more, though, and soon went for 45, hooking Narsingh Deonarine to the boundary where Shillingford ran in and took an impressive catch.
That brought Mike Hussey to the crease and he should have gone soon after, prodding at one from Shillingford that was edged behind and was put down by Baugh.
But Shillingford would get his reward, snaring Watson for 56 thanks to a stunning short-leg catch from Adrian Barath.
The durable Hussey would remain through to stumps, though, leaving the field with 26 to his name, with keeper Matthew Wade (11 no) giving him company.
