What a fabulous Test match. It was gritty, attritional stuff for three and a half days then sprung into life with wickets and this scramble of a run chase to get Australia home.

Remember where we were? West Indies with runs on the board and 150 ahead with only two wickets to take in the Australia first innings. But those last two wickets added 121 and turned the game. Michael Clarke declared behind and ran through West Indies who crumbled for 148.

192 was needed on this final afternoon, the only real question was whether the light would hold, remarkably it did until 5.45 and although Australia lost flurries of wickets, Shane Watson's 52 and Michael Hussey's 32 - who batted so magnificently under pressure - saw the tourists home.

West Indies must be absolutely gutted. They were in charge of the match but allowed it to slip out of their grasp and to be honest, played pretty ordinary cricket for the last day and a half. Collapsed under pressure with the bat in the second innings and in the run chase they were too negative, gave Australia easy runs and didn't create enough pressure. What might have been for them...

Presentation time... an exceptionally large man is part of the presentation party. Darren Sammy "We had our opportunities, we just didn't capitalise. It's one we though we had. We dominated for three days but one bad hour put us behind the eight ball."

Here's Michael Clarke..."I think you have to be positive. All credit has to go to our bowlers, not just with the ball but the way they batted in the first innings. We've got more than one allrounder in our team."

Man of the Match is Ryan Harris for a Test-best with the bat in the first innings and five wickets too.

It's been a fascinating game with a gripping finish but Australia have won by three wickets and go 1-0 up in this three-match series. Next up we're off to Trinidad for the second Test on Sunday so hope you can join us then.

Roach to Hilfenhaus, 1 run, oh goodness, celebrations as they scramble a run but is there a run out at the non-strikers end?!? No! Australia have won! There was a fumble at mid off and mid on couldn't run Hilfenhaus out, it's he who's got the Aussies' home! What an ending to the game!

All the field up now...

Roach to Hilfenhaus, 1 run, fired into leg stump, it runs to the non-existent gully off bat and pad and they scramble a run

Slip and a gully must come in, the field has to come up surely...just the one slip...

Roach to Hussey, OUT, but he's bowled! More drama!! Goes to cut and loses his off stump! Darts back off the seam...surely the West Indies can't force something from this position...the tailenders only have to scramble another three runs

Remarkable that this is the best weather of any of the evenings in the Test...Hussey to finish off the job, Mr Cricket again for his country...
