Ravi Rampaul1006826.80237111
36.3 to MJ Clarke, well there's an easy dismissal, but it looked tense for a few seconds! Rampaul digs it in, Clarke gets up to ride the bounce and turn the ball past midwicket but gets a leading edge that balloons up toward mid-on, Hinds runs in from the other side but its Deonarine from short midwicket who calls for it and takes it as he tumbles over with Hinds staring. 206/4
42.5 to CL White, fourth short ball in a row, down the leg side, White is late on the pull and the ball kisses his gloves through to Ramdin who moves across to his left and holds on. 242/5
Dwayne Smith805506.87196100
Nikita Miller806007.50154300
Daren Sammy1005115.10260200
13.3 to SR Watson, well, that was a poor delivery to get out on, a full toss outside off, it was an attempted slower delivery, Watson looks to clear deep midwicket but his hoick can't clear the fielder there, a much-needed breakthrough for the Windes. 81/1
Kieron Pollard905926.55194130
16.2 to BJ Haddin, bowled! not a replay Haddin will like to see again, the ball was miles outside off, Haddin was looking to mow it to the leg side, gets a bottom-edge that sends the ball onto the base of offstump, it's not been a great summer with the bat for Haddin. 88/2
33.1 to RT Ponting, and he strikes first ball! Is he the one-day Graeme Swann? First ball of his spell, Pollard hits a length and as the ball angles across Ponting opens the face and runs it off the face to a tumbling Ramdin who holds on to a neat catch. 192/3

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Doug Bollinger713334.71281220
0.2 to TM Dowlin, Bollinger strikes second ball, pitching on back of a length on legstump, hitting just above the knee roll with the batsman on the crease, massive appeal, umpire has little doubt, Hawk-Eye suggests the ball would have just gone over the bails. 1/1
2.3 to CH Gayle, Gayle remains Bollinger's bunny, what an over this has been, Gayle opens the face, gets a bit of an outside edge towards short cover, Clarke latches on to an overhead catch there, Bollinger has two, that's the fourth time he has dismissed Gayle. 17/2
25.1 to LMP Simmons, smacked but straight to Clarke at cover! Bollinger drags it short as Simmons goes to the leg side, looking to smack it down the ground, and the result is a flat-batted slap into the vice-captain's lap, that was hit hard and should leave a sting, but well held. 124/7
Ryan Harris722623.71323010
3.5 to N Deonarine, Windies lose another, Deonarine slashes at a length ball outside off, gets a bottom-edge which flies back onto off stump, Australia's unbeaten summer is set to continue. 19/3
9.4 to WW Hinds, there's a catch to the rookie! Short ball comes onto Hinds quicker than he probably anticipates and he's all at sea trying to pull and Smith runs across from square leg, calling for it, and takes it in front of midwicket. 39/4
Clint McKay713515.00245010
35.1 to NO Miller, 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. 190/9
James Hopes602714.50241210
17.2 to KA Pollard, nice catch there Smith! Hopes tries the short ball again, Pollard obliges with a much squarer pull shot, not as controlled at the previous one, and a running Smith takes it at deep backward square leg. 80/5
Steven Smith9.507827.93234400
26.5 to D Ramdin, plumb and Smith has his first ODI wicket! Tossed up, pitches in line with the sticks and straightens a touch, the sidespin does the trick as Ramdin plays for turn and is hit in front and the Australians rush to congratulate a red-faced Smith. 135/8
36.5 to R Rampaul, 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. 199/10
