Commentary

Game over: The total, in the end, was not enough to test the Australian batsmen. Shane Watson was fantastic second game in a row and he got great support from all the other batsmen in the top order. Tino Best was exciting to watch with all that pacy stuff, but other bowlers were hardly a threat. Australia go 4-0 up in the series just like that.

For West Indies, Kieron Pollard, who is also the man of the match, played an amazing innings to prop up the score to 220 but there wasn't much from the others. Mitchell Johnson bowled with fire up front and did most of the damage earlier. There is just one more game to go - in Melbourne - and the home side would hope for a clean sweep.

Thanks for all your comments and feedback and I apologise for the technical issues from our side. We will be back with our coverage for the 5th ODI. It's Devashish Fuloria signing off from here, ciao ciao.

Best to Maxwell, 1 run, back away to the leg side, the bowler angles it into the batsman, Maxwell still is able to slap it through cover to complete the chase.

Best to Maxwell, no run, he makes room by moving outside leg, gets a quick short one and makes not contact as he flashes at that.

Time for Big Show to finish this off.. One slip in place

Bilal: "Well... Pollard just ensured that Windies lost ...with dignity."

Best to Clarke, OUT, caught behind!! El Tino strikes again.. Too late though. It was a quick short one again, around the leg stump area, Clarke stays in the crease and goes for the pull, but gets a feather down the leg side. Tino is ecstatic..
