Kuala Lumpur: Australia are 75 for four in 19 overs in their second clash with West Indies in DLF Cup today in Kuala Lumpur. Mike Hussey, who is leading Aussies while regular captain Ricky Ponting taking rest, elected to bat first after winning the toss.

Australian collapse started with Simon Katich' run out in a confusion with his partner Hayden. Windies bowlers tested Aussie batsmen by keeping good control and perfect line. Shane Watson, who played brilliantly in the last game against India was dismissed by Taylor for duck.

Ian Bradshaw made things worst for Aussies by sending Symonds for 18 and Clarke(1) in successive overs. Skipper Mike Hussey (7) and Mathew Hayden (38) are in the crease now. West Indies made one change, bringing in Marlon Samuels for Fidel Edwards.
