Shane Shillingford became the first Dominican cricketer to play a home test and  dominated  the  opening  day  by  tearing  through  the   Australian  middle order  to  give  the  West  Indies  the  edge   on day  one  of  the  third  and  final  test   at  Windsor  Park  in  Dominica.

Shillingford accounted for the scalps of David Warner, Ricky Ponting, Michael Clarke and Mike Hussey as he ended the day with 4 for 77 to restrict the Aussies to 212 for 7.

Ravi Rampaul on his return to test cricket reaped immediate success when he sent Ed Cowan back for 1 off his second delivery, but  an 83 run second wicket partnership between Warner and Shane Watson steadied the Australian innings.

Warner hit an even 50 which included 6 fours while Watson hit 3 fours in his knock of 41. Former captain Ricky Ponting contributed just 23 before he was sent back to the pavilion and was followed shortly by captain Clarke who got 24. Hussey fell for 10, while Mathew Wade was left unbeaten on 22 and Mitchell Starc 24.

Kemar Roach and captain Darren Sammy took one wicket each.

The Aussies lead the three match series 1-nil.

The station officially went on air on August 1, 1990. Reggae in the morning, Reggae in the evening, Reggae in the night was the cry. Critics said it was impossible to sustain a 24-hour Reggae music station. In fact, so strong was the impact, it proved that this format was something the Jamaican public yearned for. The 'little station that could' got all media houses in Jamaica to stand up and take note.
