Australia strike gold in the final over of the day
Dominica: Australian Captain Michael Clarke took 3 for 34 with his little-used left-arm spin to spearhead Australia's victory ambitions at Windsor Park. The final Test between the two sides saw late drama on day three as 37-year-old Chanderpaul, in his 140th match, was dismissed on the final ball of the day by Clarke, with the hosts still needing 197 on the fifth and last day for a series-levelling win. Narsingh Deonarine was unbeaten on 11 at stumps. Australia was earlier bowled out for 259 in its second innings after resuming on 200-6
Offspinner Shane Shillingford finished with 4 for 100 to complete a match haul of 10 for 219. Shillingford, from Dublanc on the north-west coast of Dominica, was the first West Indies spinner to achieve that feat since 1966 when Lance Gibbs claimed 10 for 106 against England at Manchester. West Indies' run chase began badly either side of lunch as it slipped to 45 for 3 with Ben Hilfenhaus and Clarke leading the way.
Pacer Hilfenhaus grabbed opener Adrian Barath for a duck just before the interval. Barath clipped an on-drive to forward square leg where Ed Cowan held a fine, diving catch away to his right. Clarke then removed Kraigg Brathwaite (14) and Kieran Powell (24) soon after the resumption. Brathwaite, who broke a streak of three successive ducks, was lbw missing a pull, a marginal decision confirmed by the TV replays after the batsman sought a review.
Powell was bowled leg stump as he drove, the ball turning back through the gap between bat and pad. The left-hander hit four fours off 52 balls. But Chanderpaul and Darren Bravo (45) lifted West Indies hopes with a partnership of 110 for the third wicket bridging tea.

More It is a day of celebration for all cricket fans across the world as master blaster Sachin Tendulkar was born on this day in 1973. It has been 6 long months since the little master's retirement. There is hardly anything left which this veteran hadn't achieved in his illustrious career. From being the highest run scorer in both forms of cricket, along with making 100 centuries or even being the first batsman who was given out by a third umpire, the list is endless. Almost every record has been in his kitty. Sachin is the role model for many and this man made it a point to exercise his franchise even on this special day.
