Too much to do for the Windies. I suspect the Aussies will win by lunch on Day 5.

Its going to be tough to chase down 475 as the Windies have a long tail, and Chattergood injured. The pitch is still good though.

Can the West Indies repeat the miracle win in 2003 when they chased down the Aussies 418.
