    Rain saves Australia the blushes

    West Indies, defending 263, had Australia in all sorts of trouble at 43/5 when more and more rain scuppered the chances of the game being continued. Wavell Hinds made a century which seemed to be constructed in two parts - the first fifty took him 88 balls and then he accelerated towards his century. Aside from Chanderpaul's 45, there was no real substantial contribution but there were quite a few quick 20s by Gayle, Sarwan and Bravo. Australia were in early trouble, losing both openers with 12 runs on the board. The runs have just dried up for Hayden this season. After the target was revised to 195 in 28 overs for Australia following rain, wickets continued to fall and Andrew Symonds fell for yet another duck, his fifth in his last six innings. Perhaps rugby league would have been easier?
