Australia in West Indies T20I Series - 1st T20I

West Indies v Australia

Australia won by 8 wickets (with 11 balls remaining)

2.3

Lee to Smith, OUT, slightly short again and this time Smith perishes! Lee slung a fast delivery well outside off, the batsman tried to cut but got just a sliver of bat on it, Matt Wade taking a comfortable catch

DR Smith c †Wade b Lee 10 (10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

West Indies 19/1   J Charles 7* (5b 1x4)   B Lee 1.3-0-11-1

6.2

Watson to Charles, OUT, pitched up, misses with a swipe across the line ... gone! Watson didn't do anything spectacular with that delivery but it was on target and that's sometimes all you need. Charles goes lbw after a colourful cameo

J Charles lbw b Watson 24 (16b 4x4 0x6) SR: 150.00

West Indies 38/2   NE Bonner 2* (12b)   SR Watson 0.2-0-0-1

10.5

Christian to DM Bravo, OUT, toe ends a pull shot and Bravo is gone! The ball wasn't quite short enough, Bravo got under it and the catch looped fairly gently out towards deep midwicket, where the fielder had to run a long way in to claim it

DM Bravo c Pattinson b Christian 12 (14b 2x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

West Indies 66/3   NE Bonner 18* (25b 2x4)   DT Christian 0.5-0-3-1

12.1

Christian to Bonner, OUT, bowled him, top of middle! Another wicket for Christian and the wheels are falling off for West Indies! Bonner's somewhat ponderous innings ends with a skip down the wicket, missing with his attempted swipe and seeing his bails go pop

NE Bonner b Christian 24 (33b 2x4 0x6) SR: 72.72

West Indies 72/4   KA Pollard 0* (0b)   DT Christian 1.1-0-4-2

16.6

Christian to DJ Bravo, OUT, lofted drive and taken at long-off. Bravo doesn't have quite the same muscle as Pollard and he got under a punched shot off a length ball, unable to clear the man in the deep

DJ Bravo c DJ Hussey b Christian 14 (11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 127.27

West Indies 134/5   KA Pollard 48* (18b 2x4 5x6)   DT Christian 3-0-27-3

18.5

Lee to Sammy, OUT, holes out to long-off! Pitched up by Lee, again well outside off, Sammy wasn nowhere near the pitch and his heave down the ground came off the bottom of the bat

DJG Sammy c DJ Hussey b Lee 7 (8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 87.50

West Indies 144/6   KA Pollard 50* (21b 2x4 5x6)   B Lee 3.5-0-29-2

19.4

Watson to Pollard, 1 run, OUT, digs a shot out towards deep midwicket, they try for two but Pollard slips on the way back down ... Baugh makes sure they cross to sacrifice himself

CS Baugh run out 1 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

West Indies 148/7   KA Pollard 53* (25b 2x4 5x6)   SR Watson 3.4-0-14-1
