Jun 3, 2015 | Cricket, Sports | 0 comments

The West Indies were quickly dismantled in their first innings, making for a less than smooth start to the first Test against Australia at Windsor Park in Roseau, Dominica. Opener Shai Hope tried to inspire with 36, but that was the highest the Windies could get in the innings. Shane Dowrich made his Test debut with 15, and Marlon Samuels, who filled the shoes of Shiv Chanderpaul, was out for only 7, and as the batsmen fell like dominoes, the hosts were bowled out for 148. The Australian bowlers leading the attack: Josh Hazlewood 3/33 from 15, Mitchell Johnson 3/34 from 13.5, and Mitchell Starc 2/48 from 15. At close of pay on day 1, the Aussies were 85/3 in the first innings reply with Steve Smith on 17 and test debutant Adam Voges on 20. Australia trail by 63 runs with 7 wickets remaining.
