    6.1 oh well held, Hinds! That's the catch of the summer! Watson leans forward to a length ball and goes downtown but miscues the shot, sending the ball miles up in the air, it looks like it will take some catching as Hinds runs back from mid-on, never taking his eyes off it, and then dives full stretch forward to clutch it as it dies on him, man oh man he had to cover a lot of ground and mind you he was running behind all the way, excellent effort from Hinds 43/1
    15.3 excellent catch at backward point, and its Pollard! A ripper, as they say, diving to his right to intercept a firm cut shot from Paine, he just leaped at it and the ball stuck 95/2
    43.1 he moves across the stumps and tries to paddle it down to fine leg but he finds short fine leg, the ball is in the air and the ball dips and he takes it low falling forward 252/5
    39.5 gone this time, trying another slog-sweep across the line but getting under it and giving Sammy at long-on an easy catch, and also Miller his first wicket on tour 226/3
    42.5 tries to clear long-on but finds the fielder, Voges bends his knee slightly and scoops it high over the bowler's head, Miller cups it over his head and the momentum nearly takes him over the rope but he hangs on 252/4

    48.2 cleverly bowled actually, Pollard knew Hussey was targeting the leg side and didn't give him room to free his arms, he pitches it wide outside leg on seeing Hussey make room and advance down the pitch, the ball hits his body and deflects to the stumps 304/6
    49.4 pitched up outside the off stump and he makes room, gets under the bounce and scoops him flat to Smith and deep extra cover, he bends low and takes it 318/7

    6.2 super ball and now Gayle edges to Paine! His woes against Bollinger continue as he's sucked into feeling for a gem of a ball that pitches middle and off and deviates, taking the outer edge high off the bat 44/2
    5.5 nicked and taken! This time Harris pitches the ball just outside off and gets some good bounce off the deck, forcing Dowlin to nibble at it and Paine does the rest 44/1
    10.1 and he strikes first ball! Not a wicket-taking ball, short and there to be hit, but Simmons succeeds in pulling and picking out the one man out in the deep 55/3
    27.3 just when things were looking up for West Indies, Deonarine tries to take Hauritz downtown again, this time over the off side, comes down the pitch, bends his knee and lofts but the ball goes down Harris' throat at long-off 127/5
    20.6 Communication breakdown! Deonarine tucks it to short midwicket and there was never a single there, Hinds was miles out of his crease and was sent back, Hopes was spot on with his aim, not too sure who's fault it was 100/4
    30.4 one more down! Nothing shot from Ramdin, neither forward nor back, neither defending nor playing a shot, he sort of stabs at the ball and the inside edge ensues 146/6
    47.1 the stand's broken, full delivery outside off and he tries to launch it over long-off but doesn't get the desired elevation, finds Hussey 248/7

Match Notes

  • Ponting shines with 106 in series win

    Ricky Ponting sparkled with his 29th ODI century to lead Australia to a 50-run victory that sealed the series against West Indies

  • Watson to replace injured Marsh

    Shane Watson's rest has been cut short after he was called back into Australia's squad for Sunday's ODI against West Indies to replace the injured Shaun Marsh
