    6.6 he's been stumped now! He came down the track again, once again didn't get to the pitch of the ball, and was beaten by the straighter one. He pushed forward to try and defend but was beaten as the ball skidded past his outside edge. Wade whipped off the bails with the batsman well short 27/1
    17.2 skips forward again - and gone! Charles lofts an innocuous delivery from Watson straight to cover. Australia's captain has a golden arm, doesn't he? And that ends Charles' innings five short of what would have been a maiden international fifty 72/4
    13.2 that looks plumb lbw and the umpire agrees. Samuels is on his way, he's decided not to review. Watson pitched full and straight, Samuels defended from his crease, as he usually does. He missed and was hit around the knee roll on the back pad. Absolutely plumb. That held its line instead of angling into the right-hander 52/2
    13.5 a soft dismissal, Watson pitched the slower ball on a good length outside off, angling across the left-hander. Bravo came forward and tried to drive on the up. He ended up spooning it straight to the fielder at short cover who caught it at head height 52/3
    20.6 another one is bitten by the dust! Bravo tried a back-foot force but got a thin edge through to Wade, who clung on well. The slow bowlers are in their element on this dry strip 78/5
    28.4 goes big ... but this time he can't clear the rope. Pollard is gone! He went for another maximum but didn't quite hit through the ball this time, picking out Lyon's spin twin Doherty on the boundary. DK has jinxed his man ... 117/6
    44.5 he's been caught now! McKay pitched the slower ball delivered from the back of the hand on a good length, Baugh swung hard and across the line, hitting the ball high towards midwicket, where Christian held the catch 190/8
    42.3 caught behind! Russell tries to cut, the ball was slower outside off and he got a thick edge which Wade caught by diving to his right, McKay roars in celebration. 181/7
    49.4 Oh Roach, what have you done? After batting with such composure, with West Indies on the verge of victory, Roach sets off for a non-existent single after Sammy had played the ball towards point. Actually Sammy had begun to run as well and then stopped, looking in desperation as Roach continued towards and past him. Sammy was stranded mid-pitch as the fielder at point threw the ball to Lee, who broke the stumps to tie the game. Lee was never going to muck that up. Australia have held their nerve to pull this off 220/10
    47.2 splendid catch at short cover! David Hussey throws the ball in the air in celebration. Length delivery angling into the right-hander from round the wicket, Narine drove at it and hit the ball on the up, he middled it but the ball went straight to Hussey who took a low catch 204/9
