    2.1 Bollinger has struck, that's the end of Gayle, yet another short ball, Gayle went for the pull, gets a top-edge and the ball swirls towards mid-off, Johnson was setting off to his right initially and had to change direction and run backwards before collecting the catch just outside the circle 11/1
    3.4 and Harris continues to find international cricket easy, another wicket for him, this one was in the channel outside off, Morton goes for the drive and gets a faint edge through to the keeper, he walks 12/2
    4.2 Windies are collapsing, Dowlin joins the procession, it was a delivery angling across the batsman, pitching outside off and going away, the batsman gets well forward and wafts away from his body, gets the outside edge to second slip 12/3
    25.3 and another big blow for West Indies, with that their slim hopes are gone, Simmons was looking to guide that length delivery towards third man but gets a thick edge to the keeper, the ball kept low but Haddin clings on to it after diving to his right 111/6
    12.5 Deonarine has played some good cuts today, but this time he can only find Ponting at backward point, superb catch from Ponting, timing his jump perfectly as he latched onto that overhead chance, great captaincy as well, Ponting wasn't in that position at the start of the over, came in only after the previous cut for four 44/4
    24.5 that's the end of Pollard, this shot would have been a six in many international ground, Pollard clubbed that one powerfully, but gets a bit too much height, Johnson is there at the long-on boundary, positioning himself nicely to take the catch a few metres inside the rope, that was in the air a long time 108/5
    31.1 Harris gets another wicket, that one stayed low after bouncing short of a length, Ramdin was taken by surprise, and couldn't get his bat in the way to let the ball crash into offstump 136/8
    30.4 and that's the end of Smith, not the best shot form Smith, sweeps a ball uppishly from well outside off, finds Watson at deep midwicket 135/7
    33.6 third for Harris, and another catch for Haddin, no footwork at all from Miller as he wafts at the ball outside off, gets a thin edge which just about carries to Haddin, one more to wrap this one up 143/9
    34.2 Australia go 1-0 up, Rampaul sweeps without too much power behind the shot, the ball loops to Shaun Marsh at deep midwicket, simple catch and West Indies go down by 113 runs, Gayle's 4-1 prediction looks implausible now, Australia picked up their sixth straight ODI win this summer 143/10
