ROSEAU, Dominica – Life for West Indies in the post-Shiv Chanderpaul era began disastrously when they were bowled out for 148 in their first innings, on the opening day of the first Test against world number two Australia, yesterday.

  Opting to bat first in good conditions at Windsor Park, West Indies were cruising at 63 for one before lunch but dramatically lost their last nine wickets for just 85 runs to be all out at tea, ten minutes into an extended second session.

Opener Shai Hope top-scored with 36 and fellow Barbadian Jason Holder, at number eight, got 21, but no other batsman made it past 20.
