View dismissal ML Hayden c Taylor b Bravo 49 111 77 5 0 63.63
25.5 Soft dismissal. What a way to go. The start smacked off arrogance and promised much but .... Hayden just walked forward and across, Bravo held the length back, Hayden adjusted, swivelled and when you thought a big pull shot is going to be unfurled, he ends up patting it straight to the short fine-leg fielder, the only man in that arc. 104/5
View dismissal SM Katich run out (Bradshaw/†Baugh) 22 40 21 4 0 104.76
9.3 from Gayle, run-out! Katich gives himself room and drives trhough extra cover, the batsmen run an easy two but Katich wants the third, he charges back but Hayden isn't going anywhere, the throw comes to the wicketkeeper and Katich is stranded, Bradshaw was the fielder in the deep 41/1
View dismissal SR Watson c Lara b Taylor 0 3 7 0 0 0.00
10.5 short of a length outside off stump, Watson tries to force it through the off side on the back foot but hits it straight to Lara at cover. 42/2
View dismissal A Symonds c Smith b Bradshaw 8 22 19 1 0 42.10
15.4 got him! West Indies get their reward for some tight bowling. The usual Bradshaw delivery - on a length, slanting away and offering no room. Symonds tried to make something happen. Slided back and tried to slash past point but only warmed Dwayne Smith's palms. 57/3
View dismissal MJ Clarke c Gayle b Bradshaw 1 7 8 0 0 12.50
17.4 Clarke returns to the hut. Slightly short of length, outside the off stump. The length and the line tempted Clarke to break free. He tried - threw his bat at it, hoping the ball would sail past point, instead, it took the outside edge and flew straight to the lone slip fielder. And West Indies go into the celerbratory huddle. 64/4
MEK Hussey* not out 109 130 90 10 3 121.11
View dismissal BJ Haddin c Taylor b Bravo 70 92 77 3 4 90.90
49.3 cheeky, too cheeky for his own good. The slower ball was outside off stump and Haddin moves across and tries to chip it over the wicketkeeper, instead he lobs it straight to short fine leg 269/6

View dismissal CH Gayle c Hussey b Watson 79 151 93 7 3 84.94
31.1 and he strikes right away, short ball and Gayle pulls it straight to midwicket. Usually he would have sent that miles over the fence but he mis-timed it this time and found Hussey 195/3
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c †Haddin b Lee 0 19 10 0 0 0.00
4.2 Chanderpaul, the first-match hero for West Indies, is gone! Umpire Asad Rauf withhelds the appeal after a delay. It was a full-length delivery, slanting away outside the off stump, Chanderpaul lunges at it, has a poke and is beaten. The ball appeared to have brushed his back-pad enroute to Haddin, who dived low to his left to take it. but did it touch the bat. Shall report after I get a good look at the replays. 12/1
View dismissal RR Sarwan c †Haddin b Bracken 25 29 31 5 0 80.64
11.4 Length-delivery, in the channel outside the off stump, Sarwan shapes to cut, but is cramped. Just before the bat comes down the ball squeezes through, hits the flap of the back pad, the bat now comes down and thuds into the pad, and Haddin takes it. did the ball touch the glove enroute? The umpire definitely thinks so, replays are not too conclusive. 44/2
View dismissal BC Lara* c Hussey b Lee 87 136 80 11 1 108.75
40.2 Lee gets Lara! Banged in short, Lara went for a pull, the ball stopped on him, he was through his stroke, and the ball hit the back of the bat and popped up to short fine-leg 242/4

View dismissal WW Hinds c †Haddin b Lee 1 7 9 0 0 11.11
42.3 gone! West Indian fans might be fearing the onset of yet another calypso collapso. Fullish delivery , outside the off stump, Hinds goes for his bottom-hand powered drive, just manages to get a edge and Haddin does the rest. Australia are slowing trying to fight thier way back. But with Samuels walking out and Dwayne Smith and Baugh still in , West Indies should wrap this up but .... 249/5
View dismissal MN Samuels run out (Clarke) 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
42.5 from Lee, Oh my god! West Indies have contrived a run-out. Samuels turns one to point, he wants a non-existent run, sent back by Bravo and Michael Clarke doesn't miss. Samuels had not gone too far across but far enough to not be able to turn back in time. 249/6
View dismissal DR Smith b Symonds 4 3 3 1 0 133.33
43.4 Another one goes. And then they were three. Tossed up slow, on the off stump line, turned in, Smith leans forward, and tries to work it across to the on side, misses, and the ball hits the pads before going on to disturb the furniture. 255/7
