Roach takes 10 in the match

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad — West Indies fast bowler Kemar Roach captured two wickets just after lunch on the fifth and final of the third Digicel Test as the West Indies kept Australia’s batsmen on the backfoot.

The 23-year-old forced Mike Hussey to drag in a length delivery and two balls later knocked out the off stump of Ben Hilfenhaus. He took 5-41 in the second innings to end with 10-146 in the match - his fourth five-wicket haul in and first ten-for in a Test match.

Roach became the first West Indian since Corey Collymore seven years ago to take 10 wickets in a match. He is the first West Indian to take 10 in a match against Australia since Curtly Ambrose back in 1993.

Australia declared their second innings at 160-8 and set the homeside 215 runs to win from 61 overs.
