Australia tour of West Indies, 5th ODI: West Indies v Australia at Gros Islet, Mar 25, 2012
Australia won by 30 runs
25 March 2012 (50-over match)

Narine to Warner, OUT, but revenge is a swift as it is sweet! Narine gets his man! This one was just held back a little, Warner suffered a rush of blood to the head and swatted in ungainly fashion across the line, only to loop a thick top edge to short third man. A victim of his own success there, Warner, but credit to Narine for continuing to toss it up

DA Warner c DJ Bravo b Narine 69 (83m 61b 10x4 1x6) SR: 113.11

Australia 118/1   SR Watson 46* (58b 4x4 1x6)   SP Narine 5.5-0-36-1

Russell to Watson, OUT, and now they have one! Russell rolled a bouncer out of his hand and Watson opened the face and guided it to third man like it was on a string. There just wasn't enough pace on it to go all the way ... and Watson, like Warner, fails to go on

SR Watson c Samuels b Russell 66 (126m 89b 4x4 1x6) SR: 74.15

Australia 161/2   PJ Forrest 22* (31b 3x4)   AD Russell 5.1-0-27-1

Roach to Bailey, OUT, Roach gets a wicket off a full toss, lucky break for the West Indies, Roach angles it in, Bailey tries to clear the infield off a low full toss, can't beat Russell at mid-on, easily taken

GJ Bailey c Russell b Roach 19 (28m 22b 2x4 0x6) SR: 86.36

Australia 193/3   PJ Forrest 32* (48b 4x4)   KAJ Roach 4.4-0-28-1

Narine to Lee, OUT, through the gate! Looked like the off cutter, landed on middle and turned in slightly, clipped the pad and hit the stumps, Lee left a big gap between bat and pad, Roach ran across to congratulate Narine and he ran quite close to Lee

B Lee b Narine 12 (10m 10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

Australia 212/4   PJ Forrest 39* (54b 5x4)   SP Narine 7.2-0-40-2

Russell to Forrest, OUT, the bowling change works for West Indies, Russell bowls a length ball which rises, short enough to pull but Forrest ends up placing it straight to Roach at midwicket

PJ Forrest c Roach b Russell 53 (104m 68b 5x4 0x6) SR: 77.94

Australia 241/5   MEK Hussey 14* (16b 1x4)   AD Russell 6.2-0-32-2

Russell to DJ Hussey, OUT, and Russell is on a hat-trick! He gets David Hussey with a snorter, short delivery which fizzes past the batsman and forces him to weave backwards, Hussey tries to upper cut him over third man but the ball hits the face of the bat and the keeper takes it easily

DJ Hussey c †Baugh b Russell 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 241/6   MEK Hussey 14* (16b 1x4)   AD Russell 6.3-0-32-3

Russell to MEK Hussey, OUT, Russell has something to shout about after the hammering, change of pace, slower ball, Hussey makes room and tries to clear deep midwicket but Pollard's there

MEK Hussey c Pollard b Russell 25 (41m 28b 2x4 0x6) SR: 89.28

Australia 279/7   MS Wade 26* (15b 1x4 2x6)   AD Russell 9-0-61-4

Roach to McKay, OUT, McKay makes a lot of room to swing a short delivery over the on side, didn't time it well and the ball swirled to deep midwicket, Darren Bravo ran forward to take the catch

CJ McKay c DM Bravo b Roach 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 279/8   MS Wade 26* (15b 1x4 2x6)   KAJ Roach 8.2-0-52-2

Roach to Wade, OUT, Bravo takes another! This time just inches off the ground, Wade makes room and tries to slap it over deep cover, the ball dips to Bravo and he gets his fingers underneath it even as his hands were touching the turf

MS Wade c DM Bravo b Roach 26 (23m 17b 1x4 2x6) SR: 152.94

Australia 279/9   XJ Doherty 0* (0b)   KAJ Roach 8.4-0-52-3
