Australia were in control of the second Test versus the West Indies at tea.

The visitors were 170 for three with  Steve Smith unbeaten on 86 at Sabina Park.

With him is first Test centurion, Adam Voges, who is not out on 18.

Captain Michael Clarke, who shared a 118 runs second wicket stand with Smith, was the only batsman to be dismissed during the post-lunch session. He made 47.

Australia were 91 for two at lunch.

Fast bowler Jerome Taylor has been the most impressive bowler so far with two for 10 off 11 overs, the first six of which were maidens.

Earlier, West Indies made three changes to their team from the first Test.

Experienced batsman Marlon Samuels, leg-spinner Davendra Bishoo, and pacer Shannon Gabriel were all left out.

Samuels and Gabriel are ill, while Bishoo is nursing a finger injury.
