They're all in celebration, those West Indians, jumping and whooping it up; here comes a hobbling Lara, beaming from cheek to cheek. Gayle is the one enjoying this the most, he's yelling out so that everyone from Nariman Point to Walkeshwar hears him! Fantastic scenes at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. The crowd has raised its decibal levels to a joyous din.

The match scenario, again - West Indies, defending champions, defeated Australia by 10 runs. Lara won the toss, decided to bat, and scored a fine 71 in a 137-run stand for the fifth wicket with Runako Morton, who remained unbeaten on 90 from 103 balls as West Indies made 234 for six.

In reply, Australia lost wickets at regular intervals up the order before Adam Gilchrist and Michael Clarke added 101 for the fifth wicket. Gilchrist had his eyes on another hundred, but was run out, while Clarke fell to another fine example of how to bowl a deadly slow ball at the death, courtesy Dwayne Bravo. That wicket sparked a dramatic collapse at the hands of Jerome Taylor, who became the first West Indian to sieze an ODI hat-trick. His victims: Hussey, Lee and Hogg. Taylor finished with 4 for 49.

Ricky Ponting, during the post-match conference, express his disappointment but looks ahead confidently at Australia's remaining two games.

Ramnaresh Sarwan, the West Indies' stand-in captain, singles out Lara and Morton for their partnership. He has words of gratitude to the all-round team effort, mentions the bowling of Bravo and Taylor. He admits he had some nerves, and laughs off the Gayle-Clarke tension we saw in the middle.

The Man-of-the-Match award goes to Morton for his unbeaten 90. He's a pleased man as well; mentions the difficulty of the pitch but glad he was able to bat throughout and stay there until the end.

That's all we have for you tonight. Hope you've enjoyed this match as much as I have. Its good night from me, Jamie Alter. Do join us for our live coverage of the next match of the Champions Trophy, between New Zealand and Sri Lanka on October 20 here in Mumbai. Cheers!

Taylor to Hogg, OUT, and he gets it, can you believe it?!? History is made at the Brabourne Stadium! Wow, wow, wow! Taylor will never be forgotten here in Mumbai! A full, fast delivery on the stumps, Hogg just walks across, looking to work that around the corner but the man makes zero contact and the ball castles into middle stump, he's gone and West Indies are one away from victory

Okay, take a deep breath. 16 to win. Two wickets left. West Indies in a huddle. Taylor on a hat-trick. No West Indian has ever taken on in ODI cricket.
