Captain Michael Clarke took 3-34 to spearhead Australia’s victory ambitions.
Shivnarine Chanderpaul hit 69 and became the 10th batsman in cricket history to pass 10,000 Test runs. The 37-year-old was dismissed on the final ball of the day by Clarke, with the hosts still needing 197 on the fifth and last day for a series-levelling win.
Narsingh Deonarine was unbeaten on 11 at stumps. Australia was earlier bowled out for 259 in its second innings after resuming on 200-6.
