Australia win the match by 6 wickets, and advance to the Super Six

West Indies will have to wait and see what degree of flogging New Zealand can give the Scotties tomorrow

pretty tedious effort from Australia, but it was all to their advantage and all within the rules

don't be surprised if some pathetic reprimand is issued for "unsportsmanslike conduct" by the people who invented the rules

Presentations... Waugh attempts a joke about the slow batting, noone laughs, then comes clean and explains the situation honestly

Lara: "At teh end of the day we were disappointing today"

Man of the Match is Glenn McGrath, he's wearing the compulsory "Fly Emirates" hat

hard to bring any quotes sorry, the audio has been consistently awful at all these matches

so tomorrow matches are NZ v Scot and Pak v Bdesh, last of the tinpot team games, both scheduled to begin at 0945 GMT

and more defence, the batsmen have to be careful not to strain themselves

Dillon to Waugh, no run

but of course the action cannot last forever, Waugh has to defend that one, and perhaps just catch his breath
