    Background: Cricket...and Bobby Simpson and Craig Serjeant were in a confident mood when the Australians resumed their first innings on the third morning of their four-day match against Barbados in Bridgetown on Monday (13 March). Thanks to a fine 96 by Alvin Greenidge, Barbados had made 291 in their first innings, but the Australians always seemed set to score considerably more. Rick Darling with 60, and Graeme Wood 75, gave the tourists their first century opening stand of the tour...David Ogilvie celebrated his arrival from Australia with a solid 50...and then Serjeant and Simpson took over.

    SYNOPSIS: Despite an injured left ankle Daniel was still able to generate plenty of pace, but Serjeant steered him away for a single.

    This time it was Daniel to Simpson, the Australian captain...no run.

    Padmore to Serjeant and three more runs. Padmore has posed a lot of problems for Serjeant earlier on, but by this stage the Australian batsman was playing with much more confidence.

    Daniel again to Serjeant...and another single.

    Padmore to Serjeant...and a single, as the score moved along steadily.

    It was Daniel's third over of the morning, and the end of Serjeant. The ball hurried onto the bat...Serjeant mistimed his hook...and Skeete took the catch. Three hundred and fifty four for four with Serjeant out for 114.

    Daniel to Simpson, who had been joined by Cosier...and another single.

    Daniel to Cosier, and he got off the mark with a single.

    Simpson under fire again...it was a lively spell by Daniel.

    Simpson was batting with a lot of determination, and he clipped Daniel away for another single.

    A single this time for Cosier off Daniel, and the Australians were set for a big total.
