    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
    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
    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
    10.6 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
    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
    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
    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
    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
    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
    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
