Phew! What drama as Australia fought back hard and almost stormed their way back into the game. West Indies were coasting at one point but then contrived to lose a few wickets in a heap, raising blood pressures across the Caribbean before Dwayne Bravo, displaying a cool head, steered them home.

Bracken to Bravo, SIX runs, Take that! Awesome shot over long-off. Slower one, fullish outside the off stump, Bravo leans forward and goes through the line of the ball, top-hand comes off the bat-handle and West Indies now need only two runs.
