Daren Powell1025325.30407100
4.1 to AC Gilchrist, edged and gone! Powell bangs in a shorter one at a good pace, lands on about middle and leg and moves in a tad, Gilchrist hops up and defends, maybe he was trying to get bat out of the way, but there's the thinnest of edges through and Ramdin moves to his right and holds a good catch low down! Gilchrist starts to walk before Asad Rauf raises the finger and West Indies have drawn first blood. 10/1
40.5 to MEK Hussey, bowled 'em! Hussey reaches out to drive a very full delivery and ends up dragging it back onto off stump! A tame dismissal and Powell's gotten a second in his final over!. 234/5
Jerome Taylor1006706.70305230
Corey Collymore1005605.60325120
Chris Gayle402907.2582002
Dwayne Bravo704927.00145020
30.5 to MJ Clarke, and Bravo gets his man! Clarke plays half-cock forward to one that moves in appreciably from outside off stump, gets rapped on the leg, everyone appeals and after a good thought umpire Rauf raises the dreaded finger. 174/3
47.1 to ML Hayden, full in the zone, no room to work with, and Hayden scoops this in the air straight down the throat of Samuels at long-off, and an excellent innings comes to an end. 297/6
Marlon Samuels905816.44203211
35.6 to A Symonds, edged and gone! Samuels fires one wide of off stump, Symonds stands there and looks to bring the bat down late to cheekily run it fine, but ends up with a thin edge that Ramdin neatly snaps up!. 208/4

Nathan Bracken912512.77382010
44.2 to D Ramdin, gone! A slower ball, on middle stump and just angling across the batsman who tried to smash it over the bowler's head...a thin outside edge which Gilchrist gobbles. 217/9
Shaun Tait7.304325.73275070
3.5 to S Chanderpaul, gone! Full, straight, swinging into Chanderpaul's pads who plays all around it. 11/1
45.3 to DBL Powell, gone! And it's all over. Full and straight from Tait; Powell takes another step outside leg, and is comprehensively bowled. 219/10
Glenn McGrath813133.87334000
7.2 to CH Gayle, and a wicket with his second ball for McGrath. Short of a length, but Gayle premeditated it, getting a top-edge off a pull and it's skied to Watson at mid-on. 16/2
9.4 to MN Samuels, oh dear. That is a truly dreadful shot, skipping down the pitch, he was nowhere near to the pitch of the ball. Trying to hit McGrath back over his head, a one-handed, unbalanced top edge handed a simple skier to Symonds at cover. 20/3
28.3 to DJ Bravo, lazy shot - another complacent, unbalanced drive, not getting on top of it and it spoons straight to Ponting at cover. 107/5
Shane Watson703104.42223000
Brad Hogg1005635.60302220
25.2 to RR Sarwan, impatience has cost Sarwan. Charging Hogg, taking him on the full, he flat-batted him straight to midwicket. A careless, wasteful shot and the pressure has told. 91/4
35.3 to BC Lara, a huge appeal and that's a tame effort from Lara, a full delivery and he came down the track, yorking himself in the end, and that raps him on the knee at daisy height. The newly shorn Hogg is loving it, as are the Australia players, who swarm around him. 156/6
37.4 to DR Smith, gone! Leg break which would have gone on to clip off and middle about four-fifths of the way up the stumps. Australia continue to close in on victory now - it's just a matter of time. 172/7
Andrew Symonds403218.0072010
42.4 to JE Taylor, and he's gone. Big indrift for Symonds there, foxing the batsman who tried to sweep and was trapped in front. 199/8
