    8.1 Watson's holed out to mid-on! He saw the ball was short and went to pull, he hit it from outside off and played the shot too early, slicing it high towards Roach who took the catch inside the circle. 56/2
    1.1 caught at mid-on! Warner stays in his crease and tries to loft off his pads, he ends up spooning it in the air to Narine. The length wasn't full enough for that shot and he was through his shot too early. An ideal start for West Indies 3/1
    10.1 Forrest's been caught at third man but the fielder, Johnson Charles seems to have hurt himself. Forrest tried to hook a short of a length ball but ended up top-edging it towards third man, Charles came running in from the boundary and dived forward, taking the catch inches from the ground. Splendid effort. But he hit his shoulder hard as he caught the ball and is in some discomfort. He doesn't celebrate his catch too much and the physio is tending to him 62/3
    20.1 edged and caught! The ball was ordinary, apart from the extra bounce that caused the edge. Russell pitched short and wide, but Baiey top-edged the cut because it bounced a bit more, Baugh took an easy catch to end what was a promising partnership for Australia 111/4
    20.3 caught down the leg side and the umpire Brathwaite gives it out after a long thought! Russel pitched short of a length and Hussey tried to pull, the ball was too close to the body and he was cramped for room, he ended up edging it to the keeper. Russel and Baugh appealed confidently and eventually the finger went up. Hussey did not review it so he must have edged it 112/5
    38.4 gone, bowled him! It was a length delivery, quick and ducked in just a little, beating Hussey's drive and clattering into the top of off stump. That could be the curtain call for Australia. They still need 99 to win with just three wickets in hand 196/7
    33.6 gone! Wade slogs high into the St Lucia sky and is caught at long-off! It was a pitched up delivery, outside off but Wade could only get underneath it. After his contribution with the bat, Pollard has secured a key breakthrough with his loping medium pace. This will be known as Pollard's ODI in years to come 179/6
    46.3 gives it the old heave-ho again but this time Lee can't clear long-off. That's it, West Indies have won! Roach removes Lee by legitimate means - though he probably regrets winding him up in the first place. A heroic innings from Lee, his best score in ODIs, but the task proved beyond him and his team-mates 252/10
    43.4 the slower ball does for McKay, who spoons the ball off the bottom of the bat to long-on. He didn't pick the change of pace, tried to break a window but was well off with his timing - Pollard taking a comfortable catch 235/8
    45.3 full ball, chipped to short cover and gone! It wasn't quite there for the drive, Doherty was reaching for the ball and ended up steering it in the air on the off side, the captain Darren Sammy taking a smart catch 250/9
