Australia retain Frank Worrell Trophy

Australia underwent artificial tension before forcing a draw during the last session of the 2nd Test at Adelaide Oval against the West Indies.

Australia lost 2 quick wickets in the final session thus emboldening Chris Gayle to apply pressure by bringing in fielders in close catching position.

However, Michael Clarke and Brad Haddin survived to finish the day at 212 for 5.

Though the cricket was absorbing on all the 5 days, on hindsight it appears that West Indies lost their chance to force the issue when they opted to continue batting on the 5th day.

Now one has to wait and see whether the West Indies can carry the momentum into the final Test at the WACA and level the series.
