The wicketkeeper Matthew Wade scored his maiden Test century as Australia rallied to 328 all out at lunch on the second day of the third and final Test against West Indies in Dominica.

Wade made 106 from 146 balls, including 10 fours and three sixes, and put on a 102-run ninth-wicket partnership with Ben Hilfenhaus after Australia had fallen to 212 for 7. The West Indies off-spinner Shane Shillingford ended with 6 for 119 and he dismissed Wade, who was caught brilliantly on the boundary by Darren Bravo.
