Shane Shillingford delighted his fellow Dominicans with a four wicket haul as West Indies restricted Australia to 212 for seven on the first day of the third and final test at Windsor Park.

The off-spinner produced turn and bounce and showed a varied repertoire which frustrated Australia’s batsmen and claimed the heart of their middle order.

Ricky Ponting overtook Dravid becoming the second highest Test run scorer behind Tendulkar on the opening day.

Ponting, who made his test debut in 1995, moved past Dravid’s career total of 13 288 shortly after tea.

India’s Sachin Tendulkar has the highest total of test runs with 15 470 at an average of 55.44.

Australia 212 for 7 (Warner 50, Shillingford 4-77) v West Indies
