Pat Cummins achieves milestone as Australia press for victory

Pat Cummins was in brilliant form while opening up a strong West Indies top order, bagging his 200th wicket with impressive delivery, then some more, to provide his hosts with a big first-innings lead. Now he has the duty of determining how long Australia must bat on Saturday before announcing to push for victory in the first Test after ignoring the follow-on against the West Indies at Perth Stadium.

The Australians bowled the West Indies out for 283 late on Friday in response to Australia’s 4-598 declared. At stumps on day three, Australia was 1-29 in their second innings, a total lead of 344 with two days to play.

Now, Cummins shall seek a balance between having enough runs and permitting sufficient time to gain ten wickets on a pitch he hopes will begin to crack and play tricks.
