Aussies make stunning start to second innings in Bridgetown

7:36 am on 11 April 2012

The Australian cricketers have dramatically reversed their fortunes on the fourth day of the first test against the West Indies in Barbados.

When Michael Clarke declared at 403 for 9 not long before the tea break, 46 runs behind the West Indies first innings total, a draw seemed the likely result.

But by the 5th over of the home side's second innings, pace bowler Ben Hilfenhaus had removed three top order batsmen with only four runs on the board.
