Australia in a spin on day one

SHANE Shillingford spun the West Indies into a strong position on the opening day of the third Test against Australia in Dominica.

Shillingford, the first Dominican to play on home soil in a Test match, claimed 4 for 77 from 34 overs as Australia reached 7 for 212 at stumps on Tuesday (AEDT).

That score was boosted by a strong counter-attack late in the day by Mitchell Starc (24 not out) and Matthew Wade (22 no), who combined to add an unbroken 43 late in the day to give Australia hope of posting a score in excess of 250.

But the day belonged to Shillingford, who led the Windies out onto the field before the start of play and picked up the wickets of David Warner, Michael Clarke, Ricky Ponting and Michael Hussey in the best display of his seven-Test career.

Ravi Rampaul (1 for 44) and Darren Sammy (1 for 32) had removed Ed Cowan (1) and Shane Watson (41) before Shillingford's show began with the dismissal of Warner for an uncharacteristic 50 off 136 balls.
