Jun 4, 2015 | Cricket, Sports | 0 comments

A last-ditch effort has saved Australia for now in Day 2 of the first Test against the West Indies at Windsor Park, Dominica. The Aussies began their first innings reply to the Windies’ 148 all out, and they were in a bit of trouble at 178/8, until a total 140 runs were added for the last two wickets, thanks to test debutant Adam Voges. With an unbeaten 130, Voges partnered up with Nathan Lyon 22 to add 43 for the 9th wicket. He then joined the last man standing, Josh Hazlewood 39, for a partnership of 97 for the 10th wicket. All of this led to Australia’s first innings total of 318 all out. By the way, Voges is now the oldest man to make a Test century on debut at 35 years of age. Windies legspinner Devendra Bishoo took 6/80 from 33 overs. At close of play on day 2, the Windies are 25/2 batting a second time, with Darren Bravo on 3 and Shane Dowrich on 1. The hosts trail by 145 runs with 8 wickets remaining.
