Australia set West Indies the daunting target of 370 to win the third and final Test on Thursday after they were dismissed for 259 in their second innings in the morning session of the fourth day.

Australia had resumed on 200 for six with Michael Hussey going on to make 32 and Mitchell Starc hitting a useful 21.

West Indies spinner Shane Shillingford took 4 for 100 to finish with 10 wickets in the Test.

Ricky Ponting, in almost certainly his final innings in the Caribbean, made a crucial 57 while opener Ed Cowan made 55 in a third wicket partnership of 87 runs.
