Adam Voges and Shaun Marsh put together the highest fourth wicket stand in the history of test cricket yesterday, their combined 449 pushing Australia to 583 for four at lunch, on day two of the first test against West Indies.

They were separated when Marsh was caught at midwicket for 182 just before the break, leaving the duo just two runs shy of the record for the highest stand by any Australians in tests set by Bill Ponsford and Donald Bradman in 1934.

Meanwhile, Karim Benzema has been suspended from the France team until an investigation into his alleged bid to blackmail France team-mate Mathieu Valbuena over a sex video has been resolved.

The 27-year-old striker could miss Euro 2016, which starts in France in June. The Real Madrid forward denies any wrongdoing but if found guilty, could face a minimum of five years in prison.
