Jason Holder’s aggressive knock of 82 wasn’t enough to stop West Indies from trailing Australia by 179 runs on first innings.

All-rounder Jason Holder smashed an aggressive, unbeaten half-century, but it couldn’t prevent Australia from taking a big first innings lead of 179 runs.

Responding to the visitors first innings total of 399, the West Indies resuming from their overnight total of 143 for eight, were bowled out for 220 just minutes ago.

Holder cracked an unbeaten 82 from just 63 balls, inclusive of 12 boundaries and two sixes.

Together with fellow Barbadian Kemar Roach, who scored seven, the pair put on 77 runs for the ninth wicket.

Josh Hazlewood was the pick of the Australian bowlers, finishing with five wickets for 38 runs, while Nathan Lyon picked up three for 55.
