Fall of wickets: 1-8 (Evin Lewis, 1.2 ov), 2-24 (Chris Gayle, 5.5 ov), 3-35 (Lendl Simmons, 7.3 ov), 4-65 (Nicholas Pooran, 11.5 ov), 5-101 (Shimron Hetmyer, 15.6 ov), 6-137 (Andre Russell, 19.2 ov)
1.2 to E Lewis, splices the pull, doesn't clear mid-on! Short of a length, Lewis went for the pull, got it high on the bat and Marsh tracks back to take this just outside the fielding circle. West Indies' in-form batter is gone. 8/1
5.5 to CH Gayle, big top edge, simple catch at point! This is outstanding stuff from Hazlewood. Short of a length, Gayle aiming a pull through the leg side, instead the ball goes straight up and provides an easy catch. 24/2
19.2 to AD Russell, drags on! Hazlewood has been a machine this match. Gets the yorker length right on fifth stump, Russell tried to carve this through cover but mistimes it and it comes back onto the stumps. Hazlewood with a massive fist pump. That ball could be the difference between 140 and 155 to chase.. 137/6
7.3 to LMP Simmons, edged, caught behind! Back of a length outside off, Simmons looking to angle it down to third man but can only get a top edge. 35/3
15.6 to SO Hetmyer, Marsh is able to make use of the extra legal ball in the over! Good length ball on fifth stump, Hetmyer tries to cut but can't make enough room for himself to get the width he needed and instead slices it off a thick edge that carries low to Starc on the ring at short third man, who lunges forward and to his left to pouch this at shin height.. 101/5

Fall of wickets: 1-8 (Aaron Finch, 1.1 ov), 2-46 (Matthew Wade, 3.6 ov), 3-53 (Josh Philippe, 5.1 ov), 4-89 (Moises Henriques, 7.5 ov), 5-108 (Ben McDermott, 10.3 ov), 6-117 (Mitchell Marsh, 12.3 ov), 7-122 (Ashton Agar, 13.5 ov), 8-125 (Dan Christian, 14.3 ov), 9-126 (Mitchell Starc, 15.4 ov), 10-127 (Josh Hazlewood, 15.6 ov)
1.1 to AJ Finch, straight to cover! He strikes first ball. Round the wicket, floated up outside off, Finch goes for a strong drive but sends it at head height to Evin Lewis. 8/1
7.5 to MC Henriques, sliced to backward point! Well, the wickets keep falling. Touch of width outside off, he went for the drive and offered a waist-high catch to Bravo. 89/4
3.6 to MS Wade, picks out deep point! Wade won't believe he's done that. Short outside off, Wade didn't try to keep this down, goes up and over backward point and Hetmyer barely had to move. 46/2
5.1 to JR Philippe, and strikes first ball! Over the wicket, just back of a length, Philippe goes for the pull but is a little cramped and picks out mid-on. 53/3
13.5 to AC Agar, my goodness what an athletic return catch! The steady diet of back of the hand slower balls finally pays off. Agar too tentative checking back a full ball on his legs, just spoons a chance that flutters toward McCoy who continues charging forward in his follow-through for a somersault catch and tumble inches from the ground before popping back up and going wild.. 122/7
15.4 to MA Starc, what a catch by Allen running to his right from cow corner! Another slower ball, another one bites the dust. It landed full on off stump and Starc went for a big heave but miscued it off the inner half of the bat. It floated high in the air between Allen at cow corner and Walsh Jr at long-on, the two speediest and best catching fielders in the West Indies team. Their speed to the ball nearly results in a catastrophic collision as both were going pedal to the medal for the chance but Walsh Jr sees Allen out of the corner of his eye and pulls out as Allen continues with his diving effort to hold onto the chance five yards inside the rope.. 126/9
15.6 to JR Hazlewood, that's it! In the channel on fourth stump, tame prod away from the body and a simple edge behind gleefully taken by Pooran at chest height! Australia complete a stunning collapse, West Indies complete a stunning fightback to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat with an 18-run win!. 127/10
10.3 to BR McDermott, from net bowler against the Aussies in Sharjah to wicket-taker against Australia in a T20I! Tosses up a googly on off stump, McDermott backed away to create room to drive over cover and misses, middle stump is knocked back! Walsh Jr lets out an almighty roar that can be heard from St Lucia to St Louis!. 108/5
12.3 to MR Marsh, easy as you like and Hayden Walsh is never going to drop a return catch coming back at gentle pace. Floated up full on middle, tries to flick this against the turn through mid-on and instead the bat turns with the ball clipping the inner half of the bat to propel the ball ever so slowly back to Walsh Jr who gleefully takes this at rib height reaching across his body moving right.. 117/6
14.3 to DT Christian, Walsh Jr is flipping this match the West Indies way! That could be the wicket that does it for the hosts! Christian charges a fullish length ball on fourth stump but doesn't quite get to the pitch and miscues a drive toward long-on. Doesn't get the elevation he intended and the ball sails flat to Bravo, who charges 10 yards left and 5 yards in from the rope to claim a solid catch at knee height reaching forward.. 125/8
