In dismissing them inside their 50 overs, Australia have avoided a slow over-rate penalty. And it's a big, big win for them - 103 runs - with just Brian Lara, inevitably, holding up their victory charge with a slick 77. Denesh Ramdin showed plenty of ability and class in his 52 but it was the failings of the top-order which hurt the West Indies. Chris Gayle 2; Shivnarine Chanderpaul 5; Ramnaresh Sarwan 29 and Marlon Samuels 4. There were some decidedly complacent, injudicious strokes in those wickets too. All in all, a comprehensive, worry-free win for Australia. Keep an eye out for the verdict and the bulletin but, from me Will Luke, and Jenny Thompson, it's good night.

Tait to Powell, OUT, gone! And it's all over. Full and straight from Tait; Powell takes another step outside leg, and is comprehensively bowled

Tait to Powell, no run, not quite sure what he was attempting there...he took a good step outside his leg stump, trying to uppercut it...missing it by at least a metre

Tait to Powell, no run, quick, spearing into the batsman who gives himself a touch of room, pinging it powerfully to mid-off

Bracken to Ramdin, OUT, gone! A slower ball, on middle stump and just angling across the batsman who tried to smash it over the bowler's head...a thin outside edge which Gilchrist gobbles
