Fall of wickets: 1-51 (Josh Philippe, 10.6 ov), 2-80 (Mitchell Marsh, 15.6 ov), 3-99 (Moises Henriques, 22.1 ov), 4-114 (Ben McDermott, 25.2 ov), 5-218 (Alex Carey, 44.1 ov), 6-219 (Ashton Turner, 44.5 ov), 7-229 (Mitchell Starc, 46.2 ov), 8-229 (Matthew Wade, 46.3 ov), 9-247 (Wes Agar, 48.3 ov)
10.6 to JR Philippe, Philippe throws his wicket away after a solid start. It was a good ball from Hosein that needed to be respected with a simple forward defense but instead Philippe gets carried away backing away trying to cut and leaves his stumps very exposed. He mistimes the shot and drags on with a bottom edge.. 51/1
22.1 to MC Henriques, top edge, simple catch! Hosein has been all over Henriques. He goes for the sweep, there's some extra bounce and he can't keep down. Gentle catch to short fine leg. 99/3
15.6 to MR Marsh, big appeal for a catch down leg given not out! Looked like it came off the face of the bat or glove on the live shot. And Pollard goes for the review. Before they can even go to the third umpire, Marsh starts walking off, he knows he's hit it! Sharp take by Pooran diving down leg on this back of a length ball. Snicko shows it did indeed come off the open bat face. He was playing well away from his body so it could only have been an edge on the live camera shot down the pitch. Not sure what umpire Joel Wilson was looking at to think it could have come off the pad or thigh guard instead of glove. But the correct decision is made via a third umpire overturn in the end.. 80/2
25.2 to BR McDermott, edged, taken at slip! More reward for Joseph. Back of a length outside off, hint of away movement, McDermott playing well away from his body. A healthy edge and neatly grabbed at the lone slip. Reward for keeping the catch in. 114/4
44.1 to AT Carey, Walsh Jr gets a just reward for a disciplined spell! Flighted full on leg stump, tosses up to encourage a big heave with the spin over midwicket but the ball has been slow off the pitch all day and the lack of bounce coming onto the bat means Carey is through the shot a touch early and it beats the bat to clang into leg stump three-quarters of the way up.. 218/5
44.5 to AJ Turner, top-edged sweep to deep square leg, Lewis charges in from the rope and takes a tumbling catch falling forward! We've seen this all day, extra bounce from the spinners creating a slew of top-edges but the Australian batting lineup has been stubbornly fixated on sweeping against the spin and it leads to another wicket. Walsh bowled this well outside off on around seventh or eighth stump so Turner had to drag this a long way back to the leg side. A top edge seemed inevitable and it was read well off the bat by Lewis to make the catch possible.. 219/6
46.2 to MA Starc, googly again lands short outside leg stump, another top edge pull against the spin as Starc tries to heave this over square leg but instead it climbs on him with a touch of extra bounce and swirls over backward square leg. Hosein jogs under it casually 10 yards inside the rope and clutches on reaching in front of his body at waist height.. 229/7
46.3 to MS Wade, another googly. Another top edge! Another catch on the leg side rope! Walsh Jr pitches this one even shorter than the one he bowled to Starc a ball earlier, Wade rocks back very early but once more the pull shot against the turn does not come off the middle of the bat. It hangs in the air for some time toward Hetmyer coming in 15 yards off the rope at deep midwicket for a simple chest height catch.. 229/8
48.3 to WA Agar, clever from Walsh Jr! Saw Agar charging and bowled this very wide outside the guidelines. Pooran was prepared for it and collected to get the bails off sharply. Wide called but they get the wicket. Maiden ODI five-for by Walsh Jr! He wasn't even in the named squad but thanks to his Player of the Series performance in the T20Is, he gets brought in and rewards Kieron Pollard's faith in him.. 247/9

Fall of wickets: 1-0 (Evin Lewis, 0.1 ov), 2-4 (Jason Mohammed, 2.1 ov), 3-18 (Shimron Hetmyer, 3.5 ov), 4-19 (Nicholas Pooran, 4.4 ov), 5-23 (Darren Bravo, 5.6 ov), 6-27 (Jason Holder, 7.4 ov), 7-95 (Alzarri Joseph, 18.6 ov), 8-98 (Kieron Pollard, 21.3 ov), 9-98 (Akeal Hosein, 21.6 ov), 10-123 (Hayden Walsh, 26.2 ov)
0.1 to E Lewis, Starc strikes first ball with an athletic return catch off a leading edge! Not the best ball, was really a leg stump half-volley that should've been flicked away through midwicket but this pitch has been sticky/up and down all match and it holds up in the wicket enough for Lewis to be through the shot a touch early as the ball floats back toward Starc, who continues striding forward to take this at knee height before tumbling forward to the turf.. 0/1
2.1 to JN Mohammed, yummy inswinger rocks the stumps! Pitches this up full on off stump and it curls back to beat Mohammed, who leaves a monumental gap between bat and pad on an ill-fated drive before off stump is uprooted.. 4/2
4.4 to N Pooran, full on middle and leg, Pooran late on a flick and is pinged on the pads. Huge lbw shout upheld. Pooran goes for the review but this is not going to be overturned. He was hit very full on middle and leg. Only a prayer on ball-tracking will take this past leg stump. Sure enough ball-tracking shows it was clipping leg stump. Umpire's call is what shows up on the screen. On-field call stands. He was falling across his stumps with his head unbalanced. Starc continues to be a menace in this spell by attacking that middle and leg stump line.. 19/4
21.3 to KA Pollard, edged, taken at slip! Superb bowling. What a night for Starc. A good-length delivery pitching around middle, squares up Pollard and the edge carries low to Turner at slip. 98/8
21.6 to AJ Hosein, full, straight and lbw! Five wickets for Starc. Brilliant stuff. Went for the yorker, it's actually a low full toss but does the same business. Hosien has opted to review but this looked out. Smashing leg stump. 98/9
3.5 to SO Hetmyer, another leading edge back to the bowler! West Indies batters still not adjusting to the sticky/two-paced nature of this wicket. Another full ball on leg stump, Hetmyer through his flick early and Hazlewood's eyes light up seeing this float back to his left at a very gentle pace. He changes his direction enough to get within arm's length to pluck this one-handed with his left hand at chest height. If Hazlewood had to he could have gone two-handed but it was coming back at a slow enough pace that he took the casual approach and clutched on with ease.. 18/3
5.6 to DM Bravo, pitches it up to encourage the drive and a loose shot goes straight to cover on the ring. Full delivery on fourth stump, very very limp drive from Bravo, no effort to keep it down, no effort to really get under it to clear the ring either. Just shovels it in the air nearer the toe of the bat and it flutters to Marsh on the ring who reaches up in front of his face to claim this with ease.. 23/5
7.4 to JO Holder, bounced out! My goodness. West Indies are finding all sorts of creative ways to get out in sloppy fashion. Basic short ball plan set by Australia, shocking to see someone of Holder's experience fall for the trap but he obliges by pulling this short ball off leg stump straight down Zampa's throat at deep fine leg. Never had to move. Takes it in front of his face with palms facing out.. 27/6
26.2 to HR Walsh, flights this full on fourth stump, Walsh Jr stretches forward in defense and a thin edge is bobbled initially by Carey behind the stumps before he takes it on the second effort. Australia clinch a blowout victory by 133 runs on DLS Method. . 123/10
18.6 to AS Joseph, through him! The partnership is broken. A fuller delivery from Marsh, Joseph's feet don't really move and the ball skids past the bat into off stump. 95/7
