Gayle walks on air as West Indies fly back
The Bulletin by Peter English
December 17, 2009
http://www.cricinfo.com/ausvwi09/content/current/story/439902.html

West Indies 2 for 214 (Gayle 102, Dowlin 55) trail Australia 7 for 520 dec (Katich 99, Watson 89, Haddin 88, Hussey 82, North 68) by 306 runs


Chris Gayle whipped up the fifth fastest century by balls faced in Test history as West Indies refused to be blown over on a dramatic and heated day in Perth. Gayle unleashed the controlled fury of a captain who had watched his bowlers struggle for penetration with a 70-ball hundred that catapulted his side to 2 for 214, a promising collection which still leaves them 306 behind.

Australia felt chirpy after declaring at 7 for 520 but were soon silenced by Gayle's hot blade as he clumped 102 within 25 overs. The WACA has hosted some brutal innings and this one probably included the biggest six at the ground, with one of his straight sixes off Nathan Hauritz landing on the roof of the towering Lillee-Marsh Stand.

That rocket, which was powered by his charge down the pitch and a free-flowing swing, took him to 91 and it was appropriate that his century came with another six, this one sailing over the sightscreen. It was his fourth clearance off Hauritz and sixth of the innings, prompting him to drop to his knees for a praiseworthy celebration. Everyone watching deserved to be bowing down at him.

After a hard-working, unbeaten 165 in Adelaide, which re-floated his side after their three-day defeat in Brisbane, Gayle followed up in his traditional style. This was a batsman preening and flexing, exterminating the frustration of time in the field.

Sulieman Benn, the giant spinner with a seriously grumpy alter ego, had signalled that West Indies would not slip away meekly when he started a lengthy confrontation with Brad Haddin that ended with Mitchell Johnson pushing the bowler away. Gayle then showed the right sort of aggression for a modern cricket field, an innings containing defence and leaving with Twenty20-style explosions thrown in.

Gayle is without two of his best batsmen - Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Adrian Barath are out injured - on a surface with a reputation for supporting fast bowlers. He didn't care. His team might look fragile but he was not going to be pushed around. Four boundaries were taken in Johnson's opening two overs to set Gayle's tempo and he would calm down only momentarily.

The debutant Clint McKay was initiated with a four in front of point first ball and returned after tea to be swatted down the ground and lifted for a six to long-on. Gayle barely followed through and with his score on 79 from 46 balls there was a chance he could tackle Viv Richards' record of 56 deliveries. It didn't happen but, like Adam Gilchrist's 57-ball effort in Perth during the 2006-07 Ashes, it didn't matter.

Strokes that would usually wedge in the mind were replaced at the speed of a wedding-ceremony slideshow. When Gayle flicked Doug Bollinger over square leg to bring up his half-century from his 34th ball it seemed like the shot of the series. An effortless swing cleared the fence on one of the world's biggest grounds and the batsman's heart-rate would not have fluttered. More grunt followed the grace.

The Australians were in shock and awe, especially Hauritz, who will do well not to have nightmares of Gayle's right leg stepping down at him. Ricky Ponting kept Hauritz on hoping for a mis-hit, and there was an edge on 81 that was spilt by Michael Clarke at first slip. If Gayle missed a century it would have been a bigger crime than the physical confrontation of Benn and Johnson.

He didn't and after such carnage his dismissal was as weak as the winds in the eye of a storm, a limp waft at a short ball floating to Shane Watson at point. Bollinger was the bowler but the noise that followed was for Gayle's innings of 72 deliveries, which also had nine forgotten fours. As he exited to the first ball of the 24th over he had all but 34 off his side's 136.

Travis Dowlin was the almost silent partner but his 55 was hugely valuable until he scooped a catch to gully off Johnson. By stumps the tourists had Ramnaresh Sarwan on 42 and Narsingh Deonarine on 10, while Johnson, McKay and Hauritz were left to tend their bruises.

It was a day for runs, none of which went to Ponting. He did not bat due to his injured left elbow, but closed the innings midway through the second session after Haddin had built on the work of Watson, Simon Katich, Michael Hussey and Marcus North. On another day Haddin's 88 from 91 balls would have been the most memorable and North's confident 68 would have been discussed with appreciative nods. Sorry, but Gayle's special circumstances relegated them to small mentions.

Australia resumed the second day at 3 for 339 and quickly lost Hussey for 82, with Haddin soon doing his best to impersonate Gilchrist. Gayle did a better job, but Haddin's collection was important in inflating Australia's total, which is still intimidating despite West Indies' forceful reply.

Haddin threatened to become the first Australian of the series to score a hundred, but instead became the 15th local to reach a half-century during a purposeful innings that gained intensity with his elongated debate with Benn. The complicated exchange inadvertently brought in Johnson when the bowler pointed at Haddin and accidently brushed his partner's shoulder.

It had all begun when Haddin took offence at Benn and Johnson running into each other when the bowler was fielding in his follow-through. The ultimately harmless episode was an unnecessary and ugly period that showed both teams have some fight left after three weeks of play. It didn't help Benn though, as he returned 1 for 87 off 28 overs, but added to the excitement of a breathless day.

Smart Stats
  • Australia's total of 520 is the second-highest score that did not feature a single century. Only India's score of 524 for 9 declared against New Zealand is ahead on the list and featured six fifties against Australia's five.
  • Marcus North and Brad Haddin scored the 14th and 15th half-centuries for Australia in this series, but the hosts are yet to register a hundred.
  • Chris Gayle's century was the fourth for the visitors in the same time.
  • If the Australian batsmen fail to register a century in the second innings, this would become only the ninth time that Australia have gone through a series of at least three matches without a century.
  • The 15 half-centuries Australia have scored is already the highest scored by any team in a Test series where it did not score any centuries.

Benn faces one-Test suspension
Brydon Coverdale at the WACA
December 17, 2009
http://www.cricinfo.com/ausvwi09/content/story/439990.html

Sulieman Benn faces a potential suspension after being charged with a Level 2 ICC Code of Conduct offence for bringing the game into disrepute following an incident with Brad Haddin and Mitchell Johnson at the WACA. Johnson and Haddin have also been hit with charges but at the lower Level 1, which carries a maximum penalty of a fine of 50% of the player's match fee.

If found guilty, Benn's penalty could be a one-Test suspension, however the more likely result would be a fine of 50 to 100% of his match fee. The three men were cited by the match referee Chris Broad after the second day's play, during which an eventful 118th over of Australia's innings ended with a physical clash between Benn and Johnson.

The over began with an accidental run-in between the bowler Benn, who was moving across to field a drive, and the non-striker Johnson, who was taking off for a single. The contact seemed incidental, with neither man at fault, but Haddin appeared to inflame the situation after completing the run, when he pointed his bat at Benn.

The pair exchanged words and the sparks flew again two balls later, when Haddin drove the final ball of the over back to Benn, who shaped to throw at the striker's end even though Haddin was not taking off for a run. Haddin and Johnson had a mid-pitch meeting at the end of the over and Benn continued his remonstration, moving close to the batsmen and pointing at Haddin across the shoulder of Johnson.

There appeared to be some incidental contact between Johnson and Benn when Johnson moved to position himself between his partner and the bowler. Things became even uglier when Johnson pushed Benn away, following the initial contact. After stumps the West Indies captain Chris Gayle said he felt Benn had not initiated the physical clash.

"Benn wasn't involved in that," Gayle said. "If you watch the telly, you see who made physical contact. But like I said we'll be discussing it after with the match referee."

Gayle said there wasn't much in the incident and he quickly moved to speak to his bowler, and the tension died down. "As a captain basically you just try to get on with the game," he said. "No-one wants to bring the game into disrepute so that was the only thing, just try to get on with it."

Benn's competitive nature was on display at the Adelaide Oval last week when he regularly followed through to move into the eyeline of the batsmen, taking the sort of aggressive approach not often seen in spin bowlers. He also has a lighter side and is known for singing at every opportunity and Australia's batsman Marcus North said while Benn was "an unusual guy", it was natural to expect that the match would be played in a competitive spirit.

"There's a contest out there and both teams play it hard and hopefully don't cross the line," North said. "Both teams have played in pretty good spirit this series."
