Fall of wickets: 1-118 (David Warner, 19.5 ov), 2-161 (Shane Watson, 30.1 ov), 3-193 (George Bailey, 36.4 ov), 4-212 (Brett Lee, 39.2 ov), 5-241 (Peter Forrest, 44.2 ov), 6-241 (David Hussey, 44.3 ov), 7-279 (Michael Hussey, 48.6 ov), 8-279 (Clint McKay, 49.2 ov), 9-279 (Matthew Wade, 49.4 ov)
36.4 to GJ Bailey, Roach gets a wicket off a full toss, lucky break for the West Indies, Roach angles it in, Bailey tries to clear the infield off a low full toss, can't beat Russell at mid-on, easily taken. 193/3
49.2 to CJ McKay, McKay makes a lot of room to swing a short delivery over the on side, didn't time it well and the ball swirled to deep midwicket, Darren Bravo ran forward to take the catch. 279/8
49.4 to MS Wade, Bravo takes another! This time just inches off the ground, Wade makes room and tries to slap it over deep cover, the ball dips to Bravo and he gets his fingers underneath it even as his hands were touching the turf. 279/9
19.5 to DA Warner, but revenge is a swift as it is sweet! Narine gets his man! This one was just held back a little, Warner suffered a rush of blood to the head and swatted in ungainly fashion across the line, only to loop a thick top edge to short third man. A victim of his own success there, Warner, but credit to Narine for continuing to toss it up. 118/1
39.2 to B Lee, through the gate! Looked like the off cutter, landed on middle and turned in slightly, clipped the pad and hit the stumps, Lee left a big gap between bat and pad, Roach ran across to congratulate Narine and he ran quite close to Lee. 212/4
30.1 to SR Watson, and now they have one! Russell rolled a bouncer out of his hand and Watson opened the face and guided it to third man like it was on a string. There just wasn't enough pace on it to go all the way ... and Watson, like Warner, fails to go on. 161/2
44.2 to PJ Forrest, the bowling change works for West Indies, Russell bowls a length ball which rises, short enough to pull but Forrest ends up placing it straight to Roach at midwicket. 241/5
44.3 to DJ Hussey, and Russell is on a hat-trick! He gets David Hussey with a snorter, short delivery which fizzes past the batsman and forces him to weave backwards, Hussey tries to upper cut him over third man but the ball hits the face of the bat and the keeper takes it easily. 241/6
48.6 to MEK Hussey, Russell has something to shout about after the hammering, change of pace, slower ball, Hussey makes room and tries to clear deep midwicket but Pollard's there. 279/7

TOTAL47.2 Ov (RR: 5.30)251
Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Johnson Charles, 0.5 ov), 2-5 (Marlon Samuels, 2.1 ov), 3-37 (Darren Bravo, 12.2 ov), 4-63 (Dwayne Bravo, 17.6 ov), 5-76 (Adrian Barath, 22.5 ov), 6-111 (Carlton Baugh, 28.6 ov), 7-118 (Kieron Pollard, 31.1 ov), 8-219 (Andre Russell, 40.6 ov), 9-232 (Sunil Narine, 43.5 ov), 10-251 (Daren Sammy, 47.2 ov)
0.5 to J Charles, got him! Charles plays an unconvincing swipe and loops a return catch off the splice of the bat. The ball was short and arrived quicker than he expected as he tried to hook. The St Lucian is out and West Indies' hopes take an early knock. 0/1
2.1 to MN Samuels, Lee strikes again! Pitched on a good length, the ball rose sharply and brushed Samuel's glove on its way through. That was a devilish delivery and already West Indies are behind the eight ball! Samuels fails again, though he couldn't do much to get out the way of that one. 5/2
28.6 to CS Baugh, a collision! Wade unfortunately has hurt himself! Ouch, that will sting. Baugh tried to go for broke over the leg side, not sure where he was aiming but he got a top edge that swirled high down to fine leg, it was Hilfenhaus' catch all the way but Wade ran across from his position, two fielders claiming it, Hilfy managed to hang on despite a rampaging Wade ramming onto him, the catcher's knee hits Wade's stomach and the keeper was down, writhing in pain. 111/6
47.2 to DJG Sammy, full, heaved away into the leg side once again ... but this time he finds a fielder. Sammy perishes in the deep and West Indies suffer heroic defeat! He swung hard but this time without quite the same venom, looping a high catch to Mike Hussey at deep square leg. A valiant innings from the captain but his side fall short. 251/10
12.2 to DM Bravo, he's gone, feathering through to the keeper! Bravo's struggles had been masked by the giddy hitting at the other end but, after scratching around for 20 deliveries, Bravo attempted another glide to third man and nicked off. He's out of there and West Indies slide further into trouble .... 37/3
43.5 to SP Narine, takes the pace off it and Wade takes a skier to leave West Indies nine down! Narine was aiming to hit over the leg side again, but was through the shot too quickly, spooning up and down and out. While Sammy's out there, Australia fans won't unclench, though .... 232/9
17.6 to DJ Bravo, Watson was delighted with that! Bravo tries to smash another boundary over the off side but ends up punching it straight to Bailey at short extra cover, sharp catch in the end because Bravo really smacked that. 63/4
31.1 to KA Pollard, the captain himself gets rid of the danger man! Pollard shuffles a long way across his stumps to whip a full delivery over the on side, it was a flat hit but straight down Mike Hussey's throat at deep midwicket. 118/7
22.5 to AB Barath, the pressure gets to Barath! Tossed up on the off stump, Barath gets on his knee and tries to slog him away but gets a tame top edge that swirls to the region of mid-on, Bailey gets underneath it and a frustrated Barath walks off. 76/5
40.6 to AD Russell, forward press on the stumps, Australia appeal for lbw - they're going to review it. The question is whether it was bat or pad first ... the side camera angle suggests pad, and the ball was going on to hit ... Russell is gone and Doherty has claimed a potentially crucial wicket! Russell goes for a rapid 41, ending a century stand that brought West Indies back from the dead. Surely that's the final blow, though ...?. 219/8
