That's the game. West Indians celebrate in the dug out. It was full and outside off, Sarwan lunged at it and got a thick profitable edge down to third man boundary. What a fine win for the men from Caribbean. Though their ground fielding was pretty poor, their bowlers did a fine job to restrict Australia before Gayle and Fletcher hunted down the total in some style
Ponting: "I didnt think it was a bad total to be honest but when Chris and Adrian came out batting as they did there, it was going to be hard for us. They just went with the flow. They threw caution to the wind; they outplayed us ..."
Gayle: We weren't best on the outfield but 170 was gettable. I have to give credit to Fletcher. He played really really well. I looked to bat till 15 overs and the game should be settled by then. I am disappointed on how I got out ..We just have to rally again, put this game behind and try to win against Sri Lanka. It's not over yet."
That's it from us. Log on to Bangladesh v India game.

And Gayle's fabuliciously violent innings comes to an end. He has a laugh with Lee as he walks back. The crowd are up on their feet. Respect. He went for another big six but hit it skywards ... high .. very high ... but Watson ran in from long-on to steady himself under the ball ...
