Australia won by 7 wickets (with 57 balls remaining)

Johnson to Marshall, OUT, Gayle is run out. Oh what a way to go.Marshall had driven a fullish delivery back down the track and the lunging Johnson had got a hand on it and it went on to break the stumps and Gayle couldn't get back into the crease in time. He was in murderous mood but has to go back to the hutch.

West Indies 86/1   XM Marshall 27* (54b 3x4)   MG Johnson 4.4-0-22-0

Watson to Marshall, OUT, Super catch from Ronchi, diving to his right. He had gone down the track and tried to blast a wide delivery over the off-side field on a bent knee but got a thick edge. And Ronchi went flying to his right to pluck it. Viv Richards, on the wireless, says, "Marshall cannot be criticized for that shot. You can't be hars on him. The shot was on." He was trying to be aggressive. Great catch by Ronchi, though.
