Wade, Lyon put Oz in commanding position against Windies in Dominica Test

dominica , Wed, 25 Apr 2012 ANI

Dominica (West Indies), Apr 25(ANI): Australia's rising stars Mathew Wade and Nathan Lyon performed brilliantly on day two of the final Test match against the West Indies at Dominica, to leave the visitors in driver's seat to claim the Frank Worrell Trophy.

Wade's debut Test century turned the match back in Australia's favour before Nathan Lyon prompted a calamitous batting collapse which left the Windies teetering on the brink on Tuesday.

In a performance evocative of the Windies teams of recent years, rather than the side that has competed so vivaciously in the past six weeks, the hosts lost an incredible seven wickets for 56 runs during the afternoon session.

The Windies tottered to stumps on 8-165, with veteran Shivnarine Chanderpaul on 34 and Ravi Rampaul on 24, still trailing the Oz by 163 runs, The Sydney Morning Herald reports.

The Windies reached 1-62 shortly before tea, but a competitive Australian team triggered an absurd batting collapse.

Lyon snapped three wickets, and also throttled the hosts with his accuracy and sharp turn during a 23-over spell.

Wade scored a game-changing 106 in a manner of another left-handed wicket-keeper batsman Adam Gilchrist.

In a match where the batsmen have struggled to score, Wade smashed his last 84 runs off 74 balls and sprinted from 50 to 100 in 33 deliveries.

He added 57 valuable runs with Mitchell Starc, who made a career-best 35, for the eighth wicket and added another 102 with No.10 Ben Hilfenhaus, who made 19. (ANI)
