Commentary

So, Australia complete a convincing victory, by 84 runs. Their total always looked daunting in the conditions and indeed West Indies fell away, although they gave their best in patches.

Chris Gayle's being interviewed now and he swears to "bounce back". Here's Ricky Ponting. "Shaun Marsh on his debut game played a beautiful innings. I thought we were a bit sloppy in the field. We expect the younger guys to come in and have some success straight away. It was great to see Shaun out there and looked in good control and he's earned the Man of the Match award today."

Marsh accepts his award. "I probably should have [got the hundred]. It's fantastic to be here. To go well was really good, to get the win was even better. I'm just enjoying every minute of it. To be part of this team is amazing, I'm loving every minute."

Thanks for joining us today and do tune in tomorrow for England's latest ODI with New Zealand and come back later in the week for the next game in this series. Until then, it's goodbye.

Bracken to Benn, OUT, and that's it! It's all over, Clarke runs round from long on to take the catch as the batsman attempted to drive right over for the six

Bracken to Benn, 2 runs, backs away and gives himself plenty of room to drive hard through the covers

Bracken to Edwards, 1 run, overpitched and driven hard through mid on, cracking shot

There was a delay of about ten minutes there, by the way, while the outfield was sorted out

Bracken to Edwards, no run, on the legs, looks to turn it away but it is too late

Oh no, there's some rain in the air. This will never do - it's helpful to nobody. The crowd are annoyed with the whole situation and are throwing cans around and on to the pitch. The third umpire comes round to have a word with the groundstaff. It's not clear what they're protesting at - although it's likely to be the fact that Sammy was waiting on the boundary edge, unhappy with being given out.

Bracken to Sammy, OUT, bowled him - although he needed confirmation from the umpire as to whether it came off Haddin's pads or the stumps, both as it happened - Sammy swishing at the air

Some spectators are leaving already - they think it's a fait accompli

END OF OVER:

Lee to Benn, FOUR runs, banged it in short, goes for the pull, takes his eyes right off it but a thick edge flies hard and above Haddin and goes on its merry way
