    2.3 Gayle remains Bollinger's bunny, what an over this has been, Gayle opens the face, gets a bit of an outside edge towards short cover, Clarke latches on to an overhead catch there, Bollinger has two, that's the fourth time he has dismissed Gayle 17/2
    0.2 Bollinger strikes second ball, pitching on back of a length on legstump, hitting just above the knee roll with the batsman on the crease, massive appeal, umpire has little doubt, Hawk-Eye suggests the ball would have just gone over the bails 1/1
    3.5 Windies lose another, Deonarine slashes at a length ball outside off, gets a bottom-edge which flies back onto off stump, Australia's unbeaten summer is set to continue 19/3
    17.2 nice catch there Smith! Hopes tries the short ball again, Pollard obliges with a much squarer pull shot, not as controlled at the previous one, and a running Smith takes it at deep backward square leg 80/5
    9.4 there's a catch to the rookie! Short ball comes onto Hinds quicker than he probably anticipates and he's all at sea trying to pull and Smith runs across from square leg, calling for it, and takes it in front of midwicket 39/4
    25.1 smacked but straight to Clarke at cover! Bollinger drags it short as Simmons goes to the leg side, looking to smack it down the ground, and the result is a flat-batted slap into the vice-captain's lap, that was hit hard and should leave a sting, but well held 124/7
    23.3 short of a length on off stump, Simmons goes back and across and pushes to cover, takes a step forward, then hesitates, at the other end Smith sets off but gets shooed back and that does him in as Clarke nails a direct hit, superbly fielded there in the covers and West Indies lose their sixth 118/6
    26.5 plumb and Smith has his first ODI wicket! Tossed up, pitches in line with the sticks and straightens a touch, the sidespin does the trick as Ramdin plays for turn and is hit in front and the Australians rush to congratulate a red-faced Smith 135/8

    35.1 end of a frustrating stand as Miller is forced up by a short ball and slaps it to Clarke at cover, he stands there for a while thinking the ball was too high, but no reaction from the umpires and West Indies lose their ninth 190/9
    36.5 stumped and it's all over! Rampaul thows his bat at the one that drifts away, dragging his back leg marginally forward, Haddin collects and breaks the sticks, yelling out a relieved "THANK YOU" as he does so, and replays show Rampaul's foot was on the line so that is the end of that 199/10
