Australia in West Indies ODI Series - 1st ODI

West Indies v Australia

Australia won by 84 runs

12.5

Bravo to Watson, OUT, a huge shout as Watson walks right across his stumps - something he's been favouring this innings - and the ball comes in , pitching just outside off and rapping him in line with leg, Watson too late on the would-be flick off the legs

SR Watson lbw b Bravo 31 (59m 27b 4x4 0x6) SR: 114.81

Australia 75/1   SE Marsh 41* (50b 4x4 1x6)   DJ Bravo 3.5-0-21-1

Taylor to Ponting, OUT, some width right outside off and Ponting looks to slam it to the covers but instead drags a thick inside edge a long way and back onto the sticks

RT Ponting b Taylor 5 (24m 20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Australia 96/2   SE Marsh 55* (64b 6x4 1x6)   JE Taylor 4.3-0-22-1

24.3

Sammy to Clarke, OUT, Clarke's gone! Stepped outside off, tried to run it down to third man and sends a thick outside edge through to Ramdin who takes it two-handed to spark celebrations from Sammy and his team

MJ Clarke c †Ramdin b Sammy 9 (24m 23b 0x4 0x6) SR: 39.13

Australia 117/3   SE Marsh 65* (77b 6x4 1x6)   DJG Sammy 0.3-0-2-1

Sammy to Marsh, OUT, and there's the breakthrough they wanted! A slightly slower ball in the slot and Marsh drives, can't keep it down and it goes straight to Gayle at cover

SE Marsh c Gayle b Sammy 81 (129m 97b 7x4 1x6) SR: 83.50

Australia 140/4   MEK Hussey 7* (17b)   DJG Sammy 3.4-0-10-2

44.4

Benn to Haddin, OUT, comes out and drives straight and hard down the ground and he holes out at long off, Pollard took it well inside the rope - stretching up with two hands to pluck it safe

BJ Haddin c Pollard b Benn 50 (56m 52b 4x4 1x6) SR: 96.15

Australia 231/5   MEK Hussey 34* (49b)   SJ Benn 9.4-0-38-1

Gayle to Hussey, OUT, outside off, Hussey comes down the track and drives out to long off where a waiting Pollard jumps, takes and again makes it look easy

Australia 248/6   CL White 7* (6b 1x4)   CH Gayle 9.1-0-52-1

48.1

Sarwan to White, OUT, a huge shout, Sarwan has struck! White tries to lift it from a line with off over midwicket, misses it and goes on to strike him in front of middle, fairly high but not questionably so and the batsman has to go

CL White lbw b Sarwan 8 (17m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 251/7   JR Hopes 2* (4b)   RR Sarwan 4.1-0-22-1

49.4

Bravo to Hopes, OUT, outside off and this time he drags on a full one back into the sticks, he hears the clicks and has to walk on his way

Australia 269/8   B Lee 11* (4b 1x6)   DJ Bravo 7.4-0-50-2
