    4.3 poor shot selection has consumed him. Not much feet movement as Khawaja looks to cut, but the ball was a lot fuller than he would have liked, and the thin edge is pouched by Denesh Ramdin. Boundaries were reeling off the blade, so a timely wicket for West Indies. The skipper has struck and it seems there isn't much wrong with his hamstring going by his roaring celebration there. 28/1
    12.3 KP strikes in his first over and nearly does a Tahir, again. He looks towards the stands, perhaps, and does the finger-on-the-lip celebration. The lack of pace does Finch in. Back of a length incutter, comes in from outside off at 115ks, Finch aims to force it from there. This means that he drags a catch to Samuels at deep midwicket 69/2
    30.2 Christmas has come early for Gabriel after what was a horror spell until now. Rang long hop this one - too short - and Smith tries to fetch the pull from outside off when he could have easily looked to cut that behind point, gets a top edge and Marlon Samuels gleefully accepts the dolly at midwicket. Smith knew he was dead the moment he hit that. A hint of extra bounce on this surface also played its part. 152/4
    24.1 got him! Bailey was just starting to tick over, but the slightest of mistakes has cost him. Brathwaite bowls an incoming length ball which Bailey looks to run it down to third man, but there wasn't much room to work with as he ends up chopping it back onto the stumps. The squeeze was on, you got the feeling that Bailey was getting a little edgy to score after a string of dots early on in his innings, but that isn't to be tonight. 120/3

    36.5 Chopped on! The bails are sent flying. Having gone wicketless on Friday, Benn nips out Marsh. Pushed through quicker, 90.4ks, and turns away from the right hander. He has a lazy waft away from the body after stepping back and chops it onto the stumps via an inside edge. The WI fans are dancing and grooving in the stands 173/6
    30.6 another one bites the dust. Gabriel didn't celebrate Smith's wicket, but that isn't the case now as he roars in delight. This one's an incoming length ball that nips back in a touch from the off stump, Maxwell misses the line completely and is struck plumb in front of leg stump Possibly a big moment in the match! 156/5

    43.4 first wicket for Narine, he has his revenge this time. Nothing wrong with the legality of the delivery. He tosses it up generously, the ball spins away sharply and beats Starc's wild swing. In trying to slog again, Starc was outside the crease as Ramdin collected the ball cleanly and whipped the bails off in a jiffy, with the backfoot a good couple of yards out. 211/7
    46.5 swung in the air, this goes miles in the air, Bravo settles underneath that at mid-on and takes the skier without much fuss. Coulter-Nile went across the line even as the bat face turned in his hand, which meant there wasn't much power generated behind the stroke. Easy as they come for Bravo 238/8
    49.4 swung across the line, Wade gets a thick inside edge to Brathwaite's left. Zampa took off for the run without realising the bowler moved to his left. Then it was a battle between the two, and Brathwaite runs all the way to the stumps to remove the bails at the non-striker's end. Zampa was a couple of yards short of the crease 264/9

    10.3 Here comes Fletcher, down the track.... Here goes Fletcher. The opener's miserable stay ends. This is an easier chance for the Australian captain. Fletcher, perhaps, showed his ace early by galloping out. Hazlewood shortened his length on off and found some extra bounce. Takes the edge near the higher part of the bat and carries to slip. Overhead catch 49/1
    20.1 third one for Mitch Marsh. Johnson Charles is plays all around a straight delivery angled in to middle and leg and is plumb in front. Errs in judgment and has to walk back. For a moment, Charles thought about the review, but it would have been a futile exercise. The wheels are coming off West Indies' chase here. 72/4
    16.2 runs were coming in a trickle, and the pressure has got to Bravo. Marsh angles a short of length delivery back in from around the stumps, Bravo is cramped for room as he looks to run it down to third man, and can only manage a faint nick through to Matthew Wade. Straightforward decision for the umpire, but Bravo started to walk even before he raised the finger. Trouble for West Indies 62/2
    18.1 soft dismissal, Mitch Marsh has another. Failure again for Samuels! This one's a slower delivery on the stumps, there's a hint of grip off the surface, it cuts away a touch as well, Samuels gets a leading edge to Bailey at short cover as he closes the bat face early. Real trouble now for the hosts 68/3
    43.3 The middle stump is tilted back. Hazlewood hastening WI's slide. Good length on middle, Ramdin backs away outside leg and does not touch it. Timbaaaah! He couldn't connect with a leg-side slog 194/8
    27.1 Pollard tries to clear long-off. Instead, he finds the fielder. Zamps loops this legbreak outside off, and draws the big hit from KP. He goes with the turn and slices a lofted hit to Hazlewood, tumbling to his left at the edge of the boundary. Smart, smart catch. Hazlewood hung on even as the ball bobbled out 105/5
    37.4 Holder steps out again, the scoreboard pressure tells. He gives a catch to sweeper cover. Finch reverse-cups the ball over his head. Good length and outside off, Holder could only miscue the lofted hit 148/6
    41.3 cleaned em' up! Back of a length on middle, Carlos winds up and aims to slug it across the line. He misses it and Hazlewood nails the top of middle and roars. Carlos gone and with it WI's hopes? 185/7
    45.2 he's picked the bones out of that, but couldn't have picked out the man better. Steven Smith at the edge of the circle at cover had a thunderbolt coming his way, but he held on to it. Narine cleared his front leg to clatter that, but to no avail. Australia one wicket away from the cup! 211/9
    45.4 has he made clean connection? For most parts, it was six, until Glenn Maxwell leapt high, kept his eyes on the ball and then pulled off a stunner while he was air borne. All along, he was mindful of the ropes behind him as he timed his jump to perfection. Five wickets for Hazlewood, Australia are winners of the tri-series 212/10

Fifty-less

2012

Last time none of Australia's top-6 scored 50-plus in an ODI against West Indies - in Kingstown in 2012. They scored 154/9 in 40 overs in that rain-affected game.

Runs scored by Mitchell Marsh against West Indies between two dismissals. He scored unbeaten 79 in the last game and was out for 32 today.

Strong come-back

16

Runs conceded by Gabriel in the 8th over of the inns (his 4th). He wasn't bowled again till the 29th over and then in the 31st over (his 6th) he dismissed Smith and Maxwell.

Failing to convert big

26.16

Average opening stand for Australia in this Tri-Series - lowest among all the three teams. Their stands being: 44, 1, 48, 1, 35 and 28.

Almost a decade ago
