Nkrumah Bonner retires hurt after helmet hit, Shamarh Brooks takes over

During the first Test match against Australia, West Indies batter Nkrumah Bonner left the field after being hit on the helmet by Cameroon Green’s bowling.

Bonner was battling at 16, and he and Kraigg Brathwaite shared a 28-run stand. Jermaine Blackwood walks up to bat. There are two concussion subs in West Indies, Shamarh Brooks and Devon Thomas.

Earlier, Tagenarine Chanderpaul made an entertaining 51 in his first Test innings before falling to Josh Hazlewood.

Chanderpaul, the son of batting great Shivnarine, got a painful blow on the groin from Josh Hazlewood in his debut.

As Chanderpaul dominated the stand under floodlights, he hit a boundary off his first ball and hooked Cummins for a towering six over a long leg.

Australia declared at 598-4 on day two against the West Indies thanks to double centuries by Marnus Labuschagne and Steve Smith.

In the last ball before lunch, Labuschagne scored 204, his second double-century.

When Travis Head was out on 99 after playing on part-time offspinner Kraigg Brathwaite, Australia declared the tourists’ most successful bowler with 2-65.
