JAMAICA OBSERVER – Adam Voges’ double century then Nathan Lyon’s three wickets left Australia leading the West Indies by 376 runs on the second day Friday of the first test.

The West Indies was 207-6 in reply to Australia’s formidable 583-4, the main resistance coming from Darren Bravo, who was 94 not out.

Kemar Roach was with him on 31, and they will resume on Saturday in hope of avoiding the follow-on at Bellerive Oval.

If Bravo should complete his century, it would be his seventh, with six of them coming away from home.

Voges was unbeaten on 269 when Australia declared at lunch.

He and century-maker Shaun Marsh shared a world-record fourth-wicket partnership of 449, eclipsing the previous mark of 437 set by Sri Lanka’s Mahela Jayawardene and Thilan Samaraweera against Pakistan in Karachi in 2008.
