Second Test, Trinidad, day three: Australia 576-4 dec & 31-1 v West Indies 408
Daren Ganga hit a second consecutive Test century as West Indies avoided the follow-on and retained hope of salvaging a draw in Port-of-Spain.
Ganga made 117 as the home team reached 408 all out, 168 runs behind their opponent's first-innings total of 576-4 declared.
Australia then lost Justin Langer, Vasbert Drakes trapping the opener for three in the sixth over, before reaching 31-1 at the close.
Ganga became the first Trinidadian in 20 years to hit a hundred at home - Larry Gomes last achieved the feat against India in 1982/83.
He took 185 balls to reach three figures, a total that belied a patient approach on a lightning-fast outfield.
I hope I can play a big part in West Indies cricket
"I always knew I had the ability and capability to score at this level," said Ganga.
"I wanted to do something special in front of my home crowd. I had good support from (captain) Brian (Lara) and the rest of the guys.
"All along I have taken my cricket very seriously. Now I hope I can play a big part in West Indies cricket."
Ganga and Ramnaresh Sarwan took advantage of Australia skipper Steve Waugh's decision to avoid using his pace attack until mid-way through the morning.
Once the second new ball became available, Brett Lee halted the fourth wicket partnership at 75, a ferocious yorker bowling Sarwan for 26.
After lunch Lee followed up with the wicket of Ganga, caught at first slip nicking a vicious away-swinger.
Debutant Dave Bernard followed shortly afterwards, bowled through the gate by Jason Gillespie.
Samuels enjoyed some luck on his way to a 92-ball fifty, caught off an Andy Bichel no-ball on 47.
Fourteen of his runs came off a single over from Brad Hog, including a straight six over the wrist-spinner's head.
But a seventh-wicket partnership of 67 was brought to an end just before the tea break.
Wicket-keeper Baugh was given out hit wicket for 19 in an attempt to late-cut Stuart MacGill, handing the leg-spinner his 100th Test wicket.
Samuels was out after tea when he lofted MacGill to long-off and was caught by Bichel.
Lee finished with 4-69 when he had Drakes lbw for 24.
