Rain Suffers a Draw in the Windies

Hilfy strikes! From CricInfo.
Rain has halted any chance of a result in the 2nd Test in the Windies, after more aggressive batting and declarations from the Aussies at least brought the game to life.
You can't help but be impressed with Michael Clarke's captaincy since he took over the reigns of the Test team. He wants to win, he's looking to win, and will occasionally risk losing the match in order to win it. It's what makes Test cricket great to watch.

Two more bowlers are going home with back injuries. Peter Siddle looks to have stress fractures, which is very disappointing given the amazing strides he has taken this season. Hopefully he can recuperate and return as strong as this season. James Pattinson has gone down again, which is a little more concerning. Reports suggest it is just a protective measure, and that his isn't as serious as Siddle's. We can only hope. Could open the way for Mitch Starc to get another crack, although I guess it is more likely they will stick with Lyon and Beer as the dual spin attack for the final Test starting next week.

Scorecard: 2nd Test West Indies v Australia
