All to play for on final day at the WACA

7:06 am on 20 December 2009

West Indies are still in with a slight chance of victory heading into the final day of the last cricket Test at the WACA in Perth.

They need 51 runs to win but with one wicket remaining it's more likely Australia will wrap up the tail and claim a 2-0 series victory this afternoon.

West Indies are 308 for nine at stumps after a late collapse on day four. The tourists were teetering at three for 68 but a fourth-wicket partnership of 128 between Narsingh Deonarine and Brendan Nash had Australia in trouble before Deonarine went for 82.

Nash made 65 and Suliemann Benn 33 but four wickets in the last hour have Australia again in the driving seat.

West Indies will resume with Kemar Roach 13 not out and Gavin Tonge 12 not out.

Meanwhile all-rounder Shane Watson became the fourth player to be sanctioned for poor behaviour during the at-times ill-tempered third Test following his unsightly celebration of the wicket of West Indies captain Chris Gayle.

Watson was charged with bringing the game into disrepute and fined 15 per cent of his match fee.
