    0.5 got him! Charles plays an unconvincing swipe and loops a return catch off the splice of the bat. The ball was short and arrived quicker than he expected as he tried to hook. The St Lucian is out and West Indies' hopes take an early knock 0/1
    22.5 the pressure gets to Barath! Tossed up on the off stump, Barath gets on his knee and tries to slog him away but gets a tame top edge that swirls to the region of mid-on, Bailey gets underneath it and a frustrated Barath walks off 76/5
    2.1 Lee strikes again! Pitched on a good length, the ball rose sharply and brushed Samuel's glove on its way through. That was a devilish delivery and already West Indies are behind the eight ball! Samuels fails again, though he couldn't do much to get out the way of that one 5/2
    12.2 he's gone, feathering through to the keeper! Bravo's struggles had been masked by the giddy hitting at the other end but, after scratching around for 20 deliveries, Bravo attempted another glide to third man and nicked off. He's out of there and West Indies slide further into trouble ... 37/3
    17.6 Watson was delighted with that! Bravo tries to smash another boundary over the off side but ends up punching it straight to Bailey at short extra cover, sharp catch in the end because Bravo really smacked that 63/4
    31.1 the captain himself gets rid of the danger man! Pollard shuffles a long way across his stumps to whip a full delivery over the on side, it was a flat hit but straight down Mike Hussey's throat at deep midwicket 118/7
    28.6 a collision! Wade unfortunately has hurt himself! Ouch, that will sting. Baugh tried to go for broke over the leg side, not sure where he was aiming but he got a top edge that swirled high down to fine leg, it was Hilfenhaus' catch all the way but Wade ran across from his position, two fielders claiming it, Hilfy managed to hang on despite a rampaging Wade ramming onto him, the catcher's knee hits Wade's stomach and the keeper was down, writhing in pain 111/6
    40.6 forward press on the stumps, Australia appeal for lbw - they're going to review it. The question is whether it was bat or pad first ... the side camera angle suggests pad, and the ball was going on to hit ... Russell is gone and Doherty has claimed a potentially crucial wicket! Russell goes for a rapid 41, ending a century stand that brought West Indies back from the dead. Surely that's the final blow, though ...? 219/8
    47.2 full, heaved away into the leg side once again ... but this time he finds a fielder. Sammy perishes in the deep and West Indies suffer heroic defeat! He swung hard but this time without quite the same venom, looping a high catch to Mike Hussey at deep square leg. A valiant innings from the captain but his side fall short 251/10
    43.5 takes the pace off it and Wade takes a skier to leave West Indies nine down! Narine was aiming to hit over the leg side again, but was through the shot too quickly, spooning up and down and out. While Sammy's out there, Australia fans won't unclench, though ... 232/9
