Aussies wrest initiative
Brendan Nash of the West Indies plays a cut shot during day two of the second Test at Adelaide Oval.

December 5: Shane Watson powered to within a whisker of his first Test century, leading an emphatic Australian response to a rare display of West Indies dominance of the second Test.

Australia were 0-174 at stumps on day two at Adelaide Oval, with Watson unbeaten on 96 and his opening partner Simon Katich on 71.

The pair made an aggressive reply to the Windies’ imposing first innings of 451, a total largely built on today by Australian-born Brendan Nash.

The son of Jamaican parents, Nash - who was born in Western Australia and played for Queensland before moving to Jamaica in 2007 - compiled a methodical 92 as the visitors enjoyed a rare half-day of dominance.
