West Indies 451 & 317 drew with Australia 439 & 212-5
Australia were outplayed on the final day of the Adelaide Test against West Indies but did enough to earn a draw against Chris Gayle’s improving side.
AustraliaÂ had the vast duty of aspiring for the uppermost victorious fourth-innings chase in a Test match at Adelaide Oval when they had put 330 to win. Their situation turns out to be rougher when Simon Katich (21) drove Bravo & Ricky Ponting, who made 20.
When Australia lost their fifth wicket not long after tea, the Windies were the only team with a chance to win.
But Michael Clarke and Brad Haddin rode their luck as they ended on 212-5.
Dwayne Bravo and Kemar Roach bowled with plenty of skill on a wicket that continued to provide scant assistance for the bowlers. But Clarke and Haddin, with fielders crowding the bat, survived a number of dicey moments to frustrate the Windies.
