    6.1 West Indies have their breakthrough! Watson took on the fielder at mid-on but couldn't beat Andre Russell's arm, a direct hit sending him on his away about two inches short 34/1
    14.2 this time the edge finds a man and Warner is gone! He leaned into a cover drive but the ball didn't quite reach him as quickly as he expected, Warner stretching and the ball flying off the toe to the safe hands of Pollard at point 58/3
    9.6 Got him! Wade has been shuffling across, shuffling across - and now he's been bowled round his legs! Narine got enough turn to bring the ball back between Wade's attempted glance and his pad, the ball clattering into middle and leg 38/2
    39.5 swings hard on the pull - but he's sent it straight into the hands of square leg! It was a clean connection but unfortunately for Bailey he picked out Dwayne Bravo, who coolly pockets the ball 170/4
    45.4 got him! Cannily done by Samuels, dragging his length down as Hussey advanced, getting a bit of bounce past the bat and leaving Hussey stranded. Baugh does the handiwork 202/5

    46.1 Another one goes - a fabulous slower ball from Roach castles the younger Hussey! The batsman backed away, aiming for a swipe down the ground, but Roach rolled his fingers over it, the ball dying as it reached the crease before spinning into middle stump, half way up 202/6
    49.5 Christian is given out lbw - but he calls for the review. It hit the batsman full on the toe, in front of leg stump. Christian was hoping it was sliding down leg ... but it didn't have far to go and the replays suggest the ball would have thunked into the stump. He has to walk and West Indies have rounded up the last six wickets for 18 runs 220/10

    46.2 two in the over! Lee plays on! Roach sent down another slower ball, this not as well-directed, but the pace did for Lee who was through his windy drive too quickly, getting a thick bottom edge on to the timbers 203/7
    47.4 McKay falls to the doosra! Australia are floundering like Andrew Flintoff in a pedalo! The batsman played back uncertainly and got a thin nick on one that went away from him. Looked like it might have clipped off, if he hadn't snicked it. That's four wickets for six runs in 13 balls 208/8
    48.1 Darren Bravo shows footballing skills Dwight Yorke would be proud of to run out Doherty! Christian dropped it short on the off side, Bravo hared in and side-footed the ball into the stumps from about six yards. GOOOOOAL! 208/9

    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
