View dismissal SR Watson* lbw b DJ Bravo 21 35 23 4 0 91.30
7.1 this time the umpire's given Watson lbw and Australia have asked for a review. It's quite similar to the appeal in Bravo's first over, which the umpire said was not out and West Indies reviewed unsuccessfully. Watson came half-forward to a delivery that nipped into him off the pitch. He was beaten on the front-foot defence and hit in front. The ball hit the pad in line and it wasn't too high either. That would have hit the top of middle and leg. Watson has to go. Both teams are a review down. 31/1
View dismissal DA Warner c Pollard b Samuels 40 103 55 5 0 72.72
23.6 gone! Superb catch from Pollard and two in the over for Samuels. Warner punched it off the back foot and Pollard flung himself low to his left at cover to grab it inches from the turf. Anything in the air near Pollard is always dangerous, he's an incredible fielder. 92/3
View dismissal PJ Forrest st †Baugh b Samuels 26 64 64 3 0 40.62
23.2 breakthrough for West Indies. Forrest's struggles are over. He came down the pitch and the ball beat the outside to provide Baugh the chance of a simple stumping. 91/2
View dismissal MEK Hussey c Roach b DJ Bravo 32 80 57 0 0 56.14
42.6 caught at long-on! Hussey came out of his crease and lofted a length ball, it was the slower ball though and Hussey mis-timed the shot as a result, hitting it straight to Roach a few yards in from the boundary 162/5
View dismissal DJ Hussey c †Baugh b Roach 0 11 7 0 0 0.00
26.3 West Indies right on top now. In the channel outside off from Roach, Hussey pushed without much footwork and got a thin edge to the keeper 99/4
View dismissal GJ Bailey c Narine b Roach 48 91 67 5 0 71.64
48.1 Bailey's fallen two short of a half-century on debut. He backed away towards leg to create room and hit on the off side. He ended up scooping the ball high in the air and the fielder from the cover-point boundary came in to take a well-judged catch 195/7
View dismissal MS Wade c DJ Bravo b Narine 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
43.1 Wade hasn't survived his first ball. Narine pitched the offbreak on a good length on middle and off stump, drawing the batsmen forward. He then spun it across the left-hander, inducing the outside edge as Wade tried to defend. Bravo took a low catch at first slip 162/6
DT Christian not out 18 32 21 2 0 85.71
View dismissal B Lee c Charles b DJ Bravo 5 7 5 0 0 100.00
49.4 caught by Johnson Charles, who was running in from deep midwicket. Bravo delivered another slow offcutter that gripped the pitch, Lee was through his leg-side swing too early and mis-hit it high in the air. The fielder judged the catch well on the move 203/8

View dismissal KOA Powell c Bailey b Lee 8 30 19 1 0 42.10
6.4 oh dear, that's very soft. Dropped in short by Lee, Powell went for the pull but lobbed a simple catch to mid-on who took it neatly at head-height 23/2
View dismissal J Charles c MEK Hussey b McKay 13 15 11 3 0 118.18
3.1 early strike, a flashing drive from Charles and he played it with such power that it carried comfortably to third man where the fielder took a good catch coming forward. Charles was only going to play one way. 15/1
View dismissal MN Samuels c Watson b Doherty 35 86 58 2 3 60.34
24.3 another goes. What was Samuels thinking? Comes down the pitch to launch this over the leg side and gets an outside edge which is well taken at slip. Watson will have been unsighted for a while. Pretty ungainly from Samuels given a wicket had just fallen 97/5
View dismissal DM Bravo run out (Lee) 4 20 15 1 0 26.66
10.6 from Watson, Bravo's been run out! He pushed the ball off his pads towards wide mid-on and took on Brett Lee, who is a phenomenal athlete even now. Lee swooped on the ball after sprinting to his left and let the throw rip at the stumps at the bowler's end, hitting them with Bravo yards out of his crease. He had played that off his front foot and didn't hesitate that much before running, he still did not have a chance 33/3
View dismissal DJ Bravo b Christian 32 46 43 5 1 74.41
23.5 and there's his reward! A lovely delivery from Christian, another off-cutter which bites in the surface and zips between bat and pad to take off stump. Bit of a loose shot, but credit to the bowler for his consistency. Just what Australia needed as West Indies had settled nicely with this stand 97/4
View dismissal KA Pollard c Bailey b Christian 4 20 11 0 0 36.36
27.5 this demise is proving very rapid. Another limp dismissal as Pollard chips to midwicket trying to drive, another batsman finding timing hard on this surface. Australia closing in swiftly. 103/8
View dismissal CS Baugh lbw b Doherty 0 4 3 0 0 0.00
24.6 this time he's gone! Aims an ambitious sweep and is taken on the back leg right in front of middle. Another awful piece of shot selection considering the match position 97/6
View dismissal AD Russell st †Wade b Doherty 1 8 4 0 0 25.00
26.6 big appeal for a stumping...and gone! Wade was very confident. Russell stretched forward and was beaten by the spin. His foot appears to be on the line, but it's a tight call. The third umpire has given him, a brave decision from the TV official. West Indies sink further. 101/7
View dismissal DJG Sammy* c Christian b McKay 35 28 20 3 3 175.00
32.2 all over, Sammy's late flourish is ended and so is the match. He tries to try over the off side and only picks out cover 140/10
View dismissal SP Narine c Bailey b Doherty 0 5 3 0 0 0.00
28.3 that's four for Doherty and he's been gifted most of them. This time Narine tries to clear long-on put doesn't get the distance and it's a simple catch. What a sad display from West Indies 104/9
