Veteran Shivnarine Chanderpaul batted throughout the morning session to make an unbeaten 58 as West Indies reached 291 for five at lunch on the second day of the first Test against Australia.

When rain had ended play early on the first day on Saturday, there were only seven more overs until the new ball and Australia took it straight away but it didn't seem to provide any more movement than the old one. Darren Bravo, in Ryan Harris' third over, crashed two shots through the covers to the boundary. His innings was a mixture of stubborn defence and booming off-side strikes and that approach was almost his undoing in the 92nd over.

Brief scores: West Indies 291-5 (K Brathwaite 57, K Edwards 61, D Bravo 51, S Chanderpaul 58*; Harris 2-63) vs Australia
