Australia have won! just a single to covers. Low dipping full toss on the middle, hit straight to Clarke. Gayle is dejected and stares in to the distance. The Aussies are in a huddle.

Clarke: Ricky can get it [captaincy] back! The guys did a fantastic job. Gayle played really well but full credit to the guys who hung in there. Every body who gets a chance to play to Australia love it and cherish it.
Man of the Match: Andrew Symonds : "It was a nice wicket to bat on. I thought we had 30 runs short but in the end we had one too many for them! The ball got scuffed up and the batting became a touch difficult in the end for us.
That's it from us. Good bye and Good luck.

What a stunner from Michael Hussey at midwicket. The game swings around once more. Findlay tries to force a full length delivery and it flies off the inner half well to the left of Hussey who dives full stretch with his left arm outstretched and some how manages to pluck the ball. Awesome.
