View dismissal SR Watson c Gayle b Bradshaw 18 29 27 3 0 66.66
6.6 gone this time. It was a length delivery angling across, Watson doesn't quite manage to shift his balance to his back foot but attempts a forcing shot, and edges it straight to Chris Gayle at first slip. Bradshaw gets his man. A nice probing line and length. 24/1
View dismissal SM Katich c sub (MN Samuels) b Gayle 25 101 66 1 1 37.87
23.4 Katich's painful vigil ends. The ball stops on him after landing on a length just outside the off and Katich goes through with his shot. Ends up scooping it in the air and to long-off where Samuels runs in a few yards and stoops low to take the catch 80/3
View dismissal RT Ponting* lbw b Taylor 6 27 12 0 0 50.00
13.2 The previous one had kicked up, but this one kept a touch low after landing on a length in the off and middle line. Ponting makes the fatal mistake of going back instead of leaning forward and is surprised by the lack of bounce. He tries to get his bat down in line but as it often happens in such occasions, he brings it across the line and the ball whistles past the desperate wave of the blade and thuds into his back pad. 37/2
View dismissal DR Martyn c Morton b Bradshaw 52 92 77 5 0 67.53
38.2 Martyn gets under the ball but hits it straight into the waiting palms of Runako Morton at long-off. But he has done his job, 52 from 77 balls with seven fours. 153/4
View dismissal A Symonds c Morton b Sarwan 52 78 59 2 2 88.13
41.3 Lara's gamble works. Symonds comes down the track and swings over deep backward square-leg but can't beat the man stationed at deep. Crucial breakthrough for West Indies. 173/5
View dismissal MJ Clarke c Gayle b Sarwan 23 32 24 0 0 95.83
46.1 Sarwan's ploy of bowling from round the sticks, and turning it from outside the leg stump works again. Clarke runs down the track, tries to get outside the line and attempts to heave it but gets a top-edge that takes the ball to cover 200/6

View dismissal CH Gayle lbw b Lee 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.1 and he strikes first ball! A great delivery, full and fast right in the blockhole, some genuine late swing there and Gayle is rapped right in front middle stump, that was a toe-crusher, Lee and the rest let out a vociferous appeal and Asad Rauf has little hesitation in raising the finger, what a start for Australia as Gayle limps off 0/1
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c Katich b Bracken 12 38 23 2 0 52.17
7.2 overpitched on the legs, Chanderapaul mistimes the flick in the air towards midwicket, Katich takes the catch 16/2
View dismissal RS Morton lbw b Bracken 0 56 31 0 0 0.00
9.7 and he's gone! A good quick delivery on the stumps, plays down the wrong line and is rapped in front of middle and leg, a good shout and the verdict is upheld, Morton's painstaking innings of 31 deliveries with opening his account comes to an end 20/3
View dismissal RR Sarwan run out (Ponting) 36 103 64 5 0 56.25
30.3 Lee to Smith, run out! A good length delivery on middle and off, Smith goes back and works it to the on side, he starts to run, so does Sarwan, but they get all muddled up as Ponting dashes across from mid-on and in one smooth action collects the ball, turns, and fires in a super direct hit to get Sarwan out my miles, fine effort from the Australian captain, he doesnt miss many 106/7
View dismissal BC Lara* c †Haddin b Bracken 5 13 18 1 0 27.77
15.3 gets his man! A great delivery that lands outside off and moves in a shade, Lara defends and gets a tickle off the outside edge through to Haddin, West Indies in deep trouble 32/4
View dismissal DJ Bravo c Ponting b Watson 8 27 23 0 0 34.78
22.1 simple dismissal! Dropped in short outside off, Bravo doesnt get on top of it, takes the eyes off it going for some sort of hook but all he does is pull that tamely to Ponting at short midwicket who takes one step to his right and pouches the simplest of chances, Watson strikes and Australia well on top 55/5
View dismissal WW Hinds b Watson 0 2 5 0 0 0.00
22.5 bowled! A good, swinging delivery on off stump, Hinds' feet go nowhere as he goes for an expansive drive and he ends up playing all over that, the ball goes on to hit off stump, his poor run of form continues, Watson whoops it up with his team-mates 56/6
View dismissal DR Smith c Ponting b Lee 30 40 30 2 2 100.00
32.1 simple dismissal! Overpitched outside off stump and Smith flicks that on the up and straight into the hands of Ponting at short midwicket, he goes for a quick 30 and Lee gets another to his name 112/8
View dismissal CS Baugh c †Haddin b Lee 3 15 12 0 0 25.00
34.2 all over! Lee bangs this one in short on middle and leg, Baugh takes his eyes off it as it hurries onto him, his attempted hook goes nowhere but up in the air for Haddin to take a few steps to his left and take a simple catch, Lee gets four to his name and Australia have lifted the DLF Cup by 127 runs 113/10
View dismissal IDR Bradshaw c †Haddin b Lee 0 1 3 0 0 0.00
32.4 gone! Fractionally wider of off stump and inviting the drive, Bradshaw obliges but doesnt get to the pitch of it, flashes the drive and gets an edge through to Braddin for a simple take, Lee bursts into his smile as he looks back at the umpire, but everyone knows the result on that one, and Bradshaw hasnt troubled the scorers any, one wicket left to take for Australia 112/9
