On Saturday, as the top-ranked team in the world looked for another victory to seal the series, Scott Boland took three wickets in an over, leaving the West Indies reeling at 38-4 and facing a crushing defeat in the second Test. Day three of the pink-ball match in Adelaide saw the visitors dismissed for 214 in response to the hosts’ 511-7 declared. Australia then called time at 199-6 in their second innings. When the Caribbean team needed 497 to win, they capitulated under the floodlights in front of Boland, who had replaced Pat Cummins due to injury.

The West Indians’ hopes were dashed as he removed Kraigg Brathwaite, Shamarh Brooks, and Jermaine Blackwood in the space of six scorching balls without allowing a run (two caught and one lbw).

When Boland last participated in the Ashes campaign on home soil a year ago, he took an astounding 6-7 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, demonstrating the strength of Australia’s bowling stocks. Boland finished with 3-9.

With Devon Thomas and Jason Holder at the crease, they slogged to stumps still 459 runs behind. Mitchell Starc then induced a nick from Tagenarine Chanderpaul (17), which wicketkeeper Alex Carey collected.

That was extremely cool!” In the first innings, I bowled well but failed to take any wickets. Boland exclaimed his delight with their arrival.

I made an effort to eat more today than I have in recent days. In the Sheffield Shield, I’ve been confident in my bowling because I stick to basic hitting areas.

There is still much anticipation.

Even though the West Indies lost their first innings right before the first break of the day, Australian captain Steve Smith decided not to enforce the follow-on since he had three Tests left against South Africa and didn’t want to overwork his bowlers.

Both Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood were sidelined by injuries sustained in the opening Test match, which was won by the home team by 164 runs in Perth.

Instead, they returned to bat with the express intention of scoring quickly.

After promising starts from openers David Warner and Usman Khawaja, spinner Roston Chase slowed them down.

Warner pulled Chase’s first ball onto his wicket and retired for 28, then Khawaja was caught behind by Joshua Da Silva for 45 in the same over.

This partnership between Marnus Labuschagne and Smith resulted in 21 runs being scored off of one Brathwaite over.

Labuschagne scored 501 runs in the two-Test series, including a double century and two centuries, before being undone by Anderson Phillip, who was caught at gully by Chase for 31.

After Thomas took a catch by the ropes on 35, Smith’s good fortune ran out, and it was up to Travis Head to smash 38 off of 27 balls before the declaration was made.

A blazing Starc
The West Indies had resumed their first innings at 102-4, with Chanderpaul on 47.

But things got off to a terrible start when he was run out by Phillip in the first over.

Chanderpaul nudged Starc and set out for a single but was sent back, with the bowler releasing a powerful hit after catching the ball on his follow-through.

Starc continued his impressive form by dismissing Holder for a duck in the next over, with the tall batter inching closer to Carey.

However, the resistance of Phillip and Da Silva’s 60-run stand was broken by veteran spinner Nathan Lyon, who on Friday became the most successful bowler in the history of the Adelaide Oval, surpassing Shane Warne’s 56 wickets.

Following a clumsy mix-up with Phillip, he trapped Da Silva lbw for 23 and then ran out for 43 after a similar miscue with Chase.

Lyon dismissed Alzarri Joseph lbw to end with 3-57 before Starc removed Chase for 34.
