View dismissal PA Jaques b Edwards 2 15 11 0 0 18.18
3.2 clean bowled! Got him! Full, swinging in and that was enough. It came back in the air, landed on the middle and off, and Jacques tries to go for a off drive is beaten by the movement in and the ball threads the bat and pad gap to crash into the stumps 8/1
View dismissal SM Katich c Bravo b Bradshaw 36 107 69 4 0 52.17
24.1 fullish and on the stumps, Katich tries to hit the ball through the leg side but closes the face of the bat early, the ball spears off the leading edge and goes straight up in the air for Dwayne Bravo to safely catch at mid-off! 121/3
View dismissal RT Ponting* lbw b Bradshaw 54 74 53 9 0 101.88
20.6 Got his man! It landed on a length, on the middle and off stump line and held its line, Ponting went back and was surprised as the ball skidded low after landing and was caught in front of his off stump. It didnt roll along the ground, mind you, but kept a touch low and maybe it was a delivery that Ponting should have gone forward to. 106/2
View dismissal MJ Clarke b Bravo 81 110 79 9 0 102.53
46.6 That slower ball does the trick. Released between his thumb and the fore-finger the ball loops in the air and then dips in front of the off stump , beating the slashing blade of Clarke. 258/6
View dismissal MJ Cosgrove c Lara b Smith 34 51 38 5 0 89.47
36.2 Got him! a length-delivery, well outside the off stump and Cosgrove tried to hit through the line, on the up but only manages to sting Lara's palms at mid-off. Not a delivery to take a wicket but West Indians won't be complaining. A nice little innings comes to an end. 190/4
View dismissal SR Watson c Sarwan b Smith 2 17 15 0 0 13.33
40.5 Dwayne Smith gets his second wicket. Landed on a length, and Watson swatted it across the line but straight to the short midwicket fielder. 204/5
View dismissal BJ Haddin b Taylor 23 26 19 3 0 121.05
47.1 Taylor disturbs the furniture. Two wickets in two balls. Haddin attempted to pull a length delivery hurtling towards the off stump, misses and his off stump is pegged back. 258/7
View dismissal MG Johnson b Taylor 15 12 8 1 1 187.50
49.2 even before the ball was about to be delivered, Johnson backed away to the leg side, Taylor sent one full and fast, honing in on the off stump. The flashing blade came down in an hurry but the ball evaded it to knock back the off stump. 276/9
View dismissal NW Bracken b Taylor 1 2 3 0 0 33.33
47.5 got his man this time. Fast, full and straight on the off stump. Bracken goes for a mighty heave, the ball squeezes past the bottom of the flashing blade and crashes into the off stump. 260/8

  West Indies innings (target: 280 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal CH Gayle c Ponting b Watson 58 88 46 7 2 126.08
17.6 gone! Australians get rid of Gayle. It was a fullish delivery, pitched outside the off stump and slanting away, Gayle bends down, and tries to chop it past point, instead steers it straight to point. 136/1
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c †Haddin b Johnson 92 116 83 10 4 110.84
23.3 and it works! Bangs this one in short of a length on off, Chanderpaul looks to run that fine but the bounce surprises him and all he can do is feather a thin edge through to Haddin and Johnson gets the man who has creamed fours to all parts of the park on this awesome evening, what an innings he played when sent up the order to open 172/2
View dismissal RR Sarwan c Ponting b Watson 22 70 48 3 0 45.83
31.6 The pull shot leads to his demise again. Sarwan pulls a shortish ball, fetching it from outside the offstump, doesn't get much meat behind it and it goes to right of Ponting at short midwicket who takes a couple of steps and then dives to take a good smart catch. Advantage Australia. 197/6
View dismissal BC Lara* lbw b Johnson 1 6 3 0 0 33.33
25.1 the big man goes, oh ho! Goes back to a full, swinging delivery on off that cuts in and Lara is caught hopping right on the stumps, umpire says yep, thats out and West Indies have lost two big wickets in no time, Johnson strikes again, can he pull things around for Australia? 176/3
View dismissal DJ Bravo c Jaques b McGrath 8 11 10 1 0 80.00
28.1 Poor shot sends Bravo packing! It was short of length, outside the off stump and Bravo tries to fetch it from there - a attempted pull shot- and it pops up, off the leading edge, to cover. 185/4
View dismissal WW Hinds c †Haddin b Cosgrove 2 9 3 0 0 66.66
30.2 Cosgrove gets a wicket! Gentle seam-up stuff, landed on a length, around the off stump and shaped away a bit, Hinds pushed at it with an open-face of the bat and ends up gliding it straight into the gloves of Haddin. 196/5
View dismissal DR Smith c †Haddin b Bracken 2 24 9 0 0 22.22
34.3 That's it, its all over. Australia have won. Fullish delivery in the channel outside the offstump, angling away and Smith, the last hope for West Indies, pushed at it, got an edge and Hadding pouched it with glee. Bracken turns to appeal, gets the nod he was looking for, turns, and runs over to his teammates to join in the celebratory huddle. 201/10
View dismissal CS Baugh c †Haddin b Bracken 0 2 5 0 0 0.00
32.6 Another one goes..... Wicket no 7 falls. Wide outside the off stump and Baugh gets a brain-explosion: throws his bat at it, only to get a faint nick behind and huge smiles erupt in the Australian faces as Haddin gloves it comfortably. 198/7
View dismissal IDR Bradshaw lbw b Watson 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
33.3 Australia are all over the West Indians. Full, fast, and straightens after pitching on the middle stump. Bradshaw is caught plumb in front as he tries to whip it across the line. 199/8
View dismissal JE Taylor b Watson 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
33.4 And then they were one. Yorker, right on the middle stump line, disturbs the furniture as Taylor goes for a cover drive, the bat slicing through thin air as the cherry evades it to crash into the middle. 199/9
