Full commentary

End of the ODI series and its 4-0 to Australia. Smith gets his second. The players head off and shake hands with the opposition. We have two Twenty20s to go, the first of which is on February 21 in Hobart. We will have the action live for you. Ponting is the Man of the Series for his 293 runs at 73.75. Bye!

W
Smith to Rampaul, OUT

stumped and it's all over! Rampaul thows his bat at the one that drifts away, dragging his back leg marginally forward, Haddin collects and breaks the sticks, yelling out a relieved "THANK YOU" as he does so, and replays show Rampaul's foot was on the line so that is the end of that

Ravi Rampaul st †Haddin b Smith 4 (7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Stubborn rearguard from Miller comes to an end. He has reason to feel aggrieved because replays show that ball was pretty high. Here's Rampaul.

35.1
W
McKay to Miller, OUT

end of a frustrating stand as Miller is forced up by a short ball and slaps it to Clarke at cover, he stands there for a while thinking the ball was too high, but no reaction from the umpires and West Indies lose their ninth
