Clarke and Haddin weather hurricane Bravo
West Indies 451 & 317 Australia 439 & 212-5 (Match drawn)
Wednesday 09 December 2009
Australia were left in the embarrassing position of holding out for a draw against West Indies in the second Test here yesterday. The visitors had Ricky Ponting's side on the back foot but were unable to press home their advantage as Australia, chasing 330 for an unlikely win, reached 212 for 5 when stumps were drawn.
Dwayne Bravo led the West Indies' victory charge, the all-rounder taking 3 for 37. The hosts lost two quick wickets after tea and from that point were under siege, with the West Indies captain, Chris Gayle, surrounding the batsmen with fielders while the medium pacers were in action. But Michael Clarke (61 not out) and Brad Haddin (21no) shared in an anxious but unbeaten 73-run partnership for 85 minutes to guide Australia to safety.
Australia retain the Frank Worrell Trophy, leading the three-match series 1-0, but West Indies will head to the Waca in Perth with the belief they can level the score.
