West Indies tour of Australia, 3rd ODI: Australia v West Indies at Canberra, Feb 6, 2013
Australia won by 39 runs
6 February 2013 - day/night match (50-over match)

Sammy to Finch, OUT, oh no! Finch is not able to answer his detractors as he falls early again. It was a length ball outside off and he tries to play it towards third man - he has been doing it all morning - but it was too close. the ball kisses the edge and disappears in Thomas' gloves. Darren Sammy and Ben K worked him out..

AJ Finch c †Thomas b Sammy 38 (61m 41b 5x4 0x6) SR: 92.68

Australia 89/1   SR Watson 50* (52b 7x4)   DJG Sammy 4.3-0-24-1

Roach to Watson, OUT, caught at deep backward square leg! He wasn't really going to stop after his hundred. It was a short and fast delivery on the body, Watson goes for a hook shot but it goes straight to Pollard at the boundary..

SR Watson c Pollard b Roach 122 (138m 111b 12x4 2x6) SR: 109.90

Australia 201/2   PJ Hughes 37* (53b 4x4)   KAJ Roach 7.5-1-52-1

Pollard to Clarke, OUT, oh how well is that done! Good juggling act. Ok, so it was a low full-toss outside off, Clarke went for a heave back straight back towards the bowler but gets a toe-end to that shot. Polly jumps up assuming the ball is coming at super sonic speeds towards him, but it was a mistimed shot, comes much slower. Polly gets a palm to it and luckily for him, it falls forward and he completes a good catch

MJ Clarke c & b Pollard 15 (34m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 78.94

Australia 242/3   PJ Hughes 62* (75b 6x4 1x6)   KA Pollard 3.4-0-17-1

Sammy to Hughes, OUT, he is edged it! And Thomas, standing up to Sammy does well as the ball sticks between his legs. It was a slower ball outside off and Hughes went for a big drive, edges it and walks off straight away

PJ Hughes c †Thomas b Sammy 86 (133m 93b 10x4 1x6) SR: 92.47

Australia 284/4   GJ Bailey 17* (12b 2x4)   DJG Sammy 7.4-0-45-2

Narine to Maxwell, OUT, caught at deep square leg! Excellente catch!! Wow! Pollard flies in from nowhere and plucks a sure shot six with one hand. It was slog swept very hard and it was going flat and fast towards the boundary. But Pollard times his leap superbly and sticks his hand out, when he comes down, he's got the ball in his hand.. super catch..unbelievable..

GJ Maxwell c Pollard b Narine 4 (6m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

Australia 299/5   GJ Bailey 28* (15b 3x4 1x6)   SP Narine 8.4-0-49-1

Narine to Bailey, OUT, caught at deep midwicket! And another catch by Pollard. Another well-timed leap at the boundary. Bailey charged out of the crease and Narine pulled his length back, but the batsman goes for the pull anyway and gets a lot of bat on it. But no one is surprised as Polly pulls off another stunner

GJ Bailey c Pollard b Narine 44 (36m 22b 6x4 1x6) SR: 200.00

Australia 317/6   MS Wade 2* (3b)   SP Narine 9.2-0-51-2

DJ Bravo to Faulkner, OUT, he backs away to the leg side, gives it a mighty heave but he is nowhere near the ball. It is a straight one which goes right through him and hits the leg stump

JP Faulkner b DJ Bravo 2 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Australia 321/7   MS Wade 4* (5b)   DJ Bravo 6.1-0-31-1
