Australia battling to save first Test in West Indies

Australia are facing a major fight to save the first cricket Test against the West Indies after a poor third day's display in Barbados.

The tourists are struggling at 248 for 5, still 201 runs behind on the first innings as the resurgent Windies took control of the Test.

A patient 73 by captain Michael Clarke couldn't salvage the day for Australia, after he skied a top-edge off young West Indies leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo, in the final session.
