Jason Gillespie added another nail to the West Indian coffin with his amazing spell of nine wickets to give Australia a four-zip victory in the test series.
West Indians just don’t seem to catch a break in this series and it was Gillespie’s turn in the fourth test to make certain that the trend continued. Gillespie made a whopping $394 (35.75%) for his match winning performance. Lone star of the West Indian side was Ridley Jacobs, who evened the record of taking seven catches behind the stumps in an innings to move up by $385 (28.43%). Andrew Bichel’s all round performance earned him $243 (34.81%).
Brain Lara continued to struggle with the bat and could not find touch from the previous test. Lara moved up by just $6, disappointing his captains. Darren Ganga was the only player on the negative side, losing $6 for his value.
The Caribbean revival fell short on the 5th day of the 3rd test, as Australia beats the Windies by 5 wickets.
Behind a sparkling 61.69% move by Colin Miller, the Aussies overcome their own 2nd inning nervousness
to extend the winning streak to 13 matches. Miller's performance earned him a stupendous $401,
making him the highest % gainer for the match.
For the first time we had 3 Windies in the top 5. Leading the way was mercurial start batsman Lara,
finally repaid all his fantasy captains faith by earning $441 (40.80%). Jacobs saw his value spike up
by a $283 (26.42%) move, while Dillion saw his efforts rewarded with a $198 gain. Gillespie had a
fine $204 performance, which saw his value go up by 22.72%.
MacGill and McGrath were surprisingly among the bottom 5 performers earning only $16 & $56 for their efforts which must have disappointed many Captains.
Australia humbled the WIndies again by an innings and 27 runs to win the 2nd test match under 4 days.
Led by Mark Waugh who earned 25.59% for the match and a 24.61% performance
by fiery Bret Lee ($281), the Aussies outclasses their counterparts from the Caribbean.

Daren Ganga continued his miserable tour with a loss of ($10), bringing his value down by (-1.59%).
Not to be outdone, Lara earned a paltry $7, to increase his value by (0.65%) which will be well received by all the dreamteam captains.
Glen McGrath and Adam Gilchrist were the most impressive movers in the first
