player of the match

Phew! What drama as Australia fought back hard and almost stormed their way back into the game. West Indies were coasting at one point but then contrived to lose a few wickets in a heap, raising blood pressures across the Caribbean before Dwayne Bravo, displaying a cool head, steered them home.
