Fall of wickets: 1-56 (Adrian Barath, 10.1 ov), 2-83 (Marlon Samuels, 20.6 ov), 3-106 (Johnson Charles, 25.2 ov), 4-106 (Dwayne Bravo, 25.3 ov), 5-146 (Darren Bravo, 35.4 ov), 6-240 (Andre Russell, 46.2 ov), 7-278 (Kieron Pollard, 49.3 ov)
20.6 to MN Samuels, the lights finally go out for Samuels! The watching world can sleep easy ... Lee fizzed one through, Samuels fenced and got the thinnest of nicks through to Wade. I can't see that disappointing the crowd too much - a scratchy innings has scratched its last. 83/2
49.3 to KA Pollard, he's gone this time, the delivery was fuller outside off and Pollard swung hard at it, slicing it in the air towards deep cover where Hussey ran in and took the catch. Pollard's played a special innings and he gets a warm ovation from this crowd. 278/7
10.1 to AB Barath, caught behind! McKay, like he so often does, has picked up the wicket. The ball pitched on a good length just outside off and seamed away from the right-hander. It bounced a bit more as well. Barath stayed in his crease and prodded away from his body, getting a thick edge to Wade. 56/1
35.4 to DM Bravo, Bravo's been caught! He drove hard at a length ball angling across him, playing away from his body, trying to hit on the up and through the line. He ended up slicing it high in the air towards the edge of the circle at cover. There was a fielder steaming in from the deep but David Hussey ran back from the in-field to take a well-judged catch. 146/5
46.2 to AD Russell, caught at extra cover! Watson bowled a full ball outside off stump, Russell stayed in his crease and drove hard, he made good contact, hitting the ball well but in the air towards Bailey, who took the catch to his left. 240/6
25.2 to J Charles, the St Lucia crowd falls silent: Charles has holed out to long-on. It was a length ball and Charles skipped out eagerly to meet it but his slog didn't quite come off the middle - the ball ending up in Brett Lee's middle as he took a jumping catch on the boundary. 106/3
25.3 to DJ Bravo, Dwayne Bravo faces a review first ball ... and he's gone! Doherty tossed one up around leg stump, Bravo leaned forward with his bat against his pad. The ball thunked just below the knee roll - and replays showed it would have gone on to break the wicket. That's two in two for Doughy!. 106/4

TOTAL46.3 Ov (RR: 5.41)252
Fall of wickets: 1-3 (David Warner, 1.1 ov), 2-56 (Shane Watson, 8.1 ov), 3-62 (Peter Forrest, 10.1 ov), 4-111 (George Bailey, 20.1 ov), 5-112 (Michael Hussey, 20.3 ov), 6-179 (Matthew Wade, 33.6 ov), 7-196 (David Hussey, 38.4 ov), 8-235 (Clint McKay, 43.4 ov), 9-250 (Xavier Doherty, 45.3 ov), 10-252 (Brett Lee, 46.3 ov)
38.4 to DJ Hussey, gone, bowled him! It was a length delivery, quick and ducked in just a little, beating Hussey's drive and clattering into the top of off stump. That could be the curtain call for Australia. They still need 99 to win with just three wickets in hand. 196/7
46.3 to B Lee, gives it the old heave-ho again but this time Lee can't clear long-off. That's it, West Indies have won! Roach removes Lee by legitimate means - though he probably regrets winding him up in the first place. A heroic innings from Lee, his best score in ODIs, but the task proved beyond him and his team-mates. 252/10
1.1 to DA Warner, caught at mid-on! Warner stays in his crease and tries to loft off his pads, he ends up spooning it in the air to Narine. The length wasn't full enough for that shot and he was through his shot too early. An ideal start for West Indies. 3/1
43.4 to CJ McKay, the slower ball does for McKay, who spoons the ball off the bottom of the bat to long-on. He didn't pick the change of pace, tried to break a window but was well off with his timing - Pollard taking a comfortable catch. 235/8
45.3 to XJ Doherty, full ball, chipped to short cover and gone! It wasn't quite there for the drive, Doherty was reaching for the ball and ended up steering it in the air on the off side, the captain Darren Sammy taking a smart catch. 250/9
8.1 to SR Watson, Watson's holed out to mid-on! He saw the ball was short and went to pull, he hit it from outside off and played the shot too early, slicing it high towards Roach who took the catch inside the circle.. 56/2
10.1 to PJ Forrest, Forrest's been caught at third man but the fielder, Johnson Charles seems to have hurt himself. Forrest tried to hook a short of a length ball but ended up top-edging it towards third man, Charles came running in from the boundary and dived forward, taking the catch inches from the ground. Splendid effort. But he hit his shoulder hard as he caught the ball and is in some discomfort. He doesn't celebrate his catch too much and the physio is tending to him. 62/3
20.1 to GJ Bailey, edged and caught! The ball was ordinary, apart from the extra bounce that caused the edge. Russell pitched short and wide, but Baiey top-edged the cut because it bounced a bit more, Baugh took an easy catch to end what was a promising partnership for Australia. 111/4
20.3 to MEK Hussey, caught down the leg side and the umpire Brathwaite gives it out after a long thought! Russel pitched short of a length and Hussey tried to pull, the ball was too close to the body and he was cramped for room, he ended up edging it to the keeper. Russel and Baugh appealed confidently and eventually the finger went up. Hussey did not review it so he must have edged it. 112/5
33.6 to MS Wade, gone! Wade slogs high into the St Lucia sky and is caught at long-off! It was a pitched up delivery, outside off but Wade could only get underneath it. After his contribution with the bat, Pollard has secured a key breakthrough with his loping medium pace. This will be known as Pollard's ODI in years to come. 179/6
