West Indies tour of Australia, 1st ODI: Australia v West Indies at Perth, Feb 1, 2013
Australia won by 9 wickets (with 244 balls remaining)
1 February 2013 - day/night match (50-over match)

McKay to Gayle, OUT, caught at second slip! short of length on off stump, leaves the batsman and bounces a touch extra too, it takes the shoulder of the bat on it's way to the slip cordon and Finch dives across and catches it in front of the first slip fielder, it carried at a nice height this one, a super catch to send the big man back

CH Gayle c Finch b McKay 4 (23m 13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 30.76

West Indies 14/1   KOA Powell 7* (16b 1x4)   CJ McKay 2.5-0-7-1

Starc to Powell, OUT, caught at first slip! So that is what Starc has been setting Powell up for. It is another swinging delivery on off stump, but the length is pulled back just a bit, only just, and it takes the outside edge and goes straight to Michael Clarke for the easiest of slip catches. Two Down

KOA Powell c Clarke b Starc 11 (27m 18b 2x4 0x6) SR: 61.11

West Indies 18/2   RR Sarwan 0* (1b)   MA Starc 2.2-1-10-1

Starc to Sarwan, OUT, hits middle and leg!!! Well well well, it is made me jump off my seat. It is full and swinging and fast and what not... Sarwan plays all over it and it goes through the gate and disarrays the nice lattice that the stumps are laid in.

RR Sarwan b Starc 0 (7m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 19/3   DM Bravo 1* (1b)   MA Starc 2.5-1-11-2

Starc to DJ Bravo, OUT, is that caught! is that lbw! Whatever it is, it is another wicket! It is bat-pad to short leg. Starc keeps it there, full, fast and swinging on the middle stump, Dwayne, unlike Sarwan, takes a stride out to the ball, but it takes the inside edge, hits the pads and goes straight to short-leg fielder

DJ Bravo c Hughes b Starc 0 (7m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 19/4   DM Bravo 1* (7b)   MA Starc 3.1-1-11-3

Starc to Pollard, OUT, take this one then!! Full inswinging delivery outside off, Polly doesn't get too far forward and chops the ball back to the stumps. That's out twice in two balls in my book.

KA Pollard b Starc 0 (3m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 19/5   DM Bravo 1* (7b)   MA Starc 3.3-1-11-4

Faulkner to Thomas, OUT, caught at first slip! Success, triumph and fun for JF. A good start to his career and Thomas gives his wicket as a gift. It was short of length on off stump, angling across, and Thomas pokes at it, the edge flies comfortably to Clarke

DC Thomas c Clarke b Faulkner 3 (15m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 27.27

West Indies 28/6   DM Bravo 7* (16b 1x4)   JP Faulkner 0.5-0-2-1

Faulkner to DM Bravo, OUT, caught my Mr. Clarke at you know where! As simple as you like. Length delivery on off stump, moves a touch away after pitching and Bravo plays that from the back foot when probably he should have been forward, the ball takes a proper edge and goes straight to first slip

DM Bravo c Clarke b Faulkner 11 (41m 25b 1x4 0x6) SR: 44.00

West Indies 39/7   DJG Sammy 1* (3b)   JP Faulkner 1.5-0-6-2

McKay to Sammy, OUT, caught at midwicket! Here comes the wicket. Short of length on off and middle, Sammy tries to flick it to the leg side , but the ball gets big on him and it takes a leading edge. It could have been McKay's catch, but he slips in his follow through, but there is ample time for the fielder at midwicket to jog in and swallow that one

DJG Sammy c Bailey b McKay 16 (43m 37b 2x4 0x6) SR: 43.24

West Indies 65/8   JO Holder 4* (10b)   CJ McKay 5.1-1-10-2

McKay to Narine, OUT, No. 6 is not Narine's lucky number surely. After five attempts to get out, he succeeds off the sixth delivery and edges it through to the keeper.

SP Narine c †Wade b McKay 0 (12m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

West Indies 68/9   JO Holder 6* (16b)   CJ McKay 7-3-10-3

Starc to Holder, OUT, No. 5 for Mister Starc! Length ball on middle and leg, swings in. Mr. Holder had moved outside leg stump to send this over the bowler's head, but he misses and loses the leg-stump.

JO Holder b Starc 7 (49m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 36.84

West Indies 70/10   KAJ Roach 1* (2b)   MA Starc 6.5-2-20-5
