Bailey and Starc set up Australia win

George Bailey's maiden international century set up a 54-run victory for Australia in the second ODI against West Indies in Perth, where they took a 2-0 series lead

West Indies212/10(38.1 overs)

It has all ended in a bit of a haste really. The match was nicely set up by a counter-attacking stand between Powell and Dwayne Bravo - both getting half-centuries - but once Bravo was out, it opened the floodgates and the innings folded quickly. Mitchell Starc was superb again - he has two five-fors from two games now - and he was the destructor-in-chief today. The questionable application of DRS left a bit of sour taste, but then apart from two, none of West Indies' batsmen applied themselves. Australia take a 2-0 lead in the ODI series, but given the match today, the series could get closer.


George Bailey is the man of the match. Not much of a presentation ceremony here, so we can't bring the comments from the captains. But there will be stories out later from press-conferences and I for one would like to read more about the decision-making process. It's the end of our coverage here and Brydon's report is being updated. Thanks for all your comments and feedback. This is Devashish Fuloria signing off from here.. ciao ciao.


Phil: "Sorry, but totally irresponsible play by Narine. Blocking out the last two balls of the over would have sufficed... but ah no; gotta go for glory!"

gav: "This game has had everything so far; brilliant fielding from the West Indies, a smashing century from Bailey, Powell out-hitting Bravo and Pollard, a shocking DRS call, Narine hitting 4 sixes in row, and now Wade has effected a stumping!! I don't know what to believe."

Maxwell to Holder, OUT

comes out of the pitch and drives it straight to cover. There is hesitation between the batsmen though and that costs Holder his wicket as he is inches short of the crease at the non-striker's end..

Karthik: "Blaming the DRS for Thomas' decision is silly. The ICC clearly states that decisions can be overturned on conclusive evidence. Asad Rauf is the one to be blamed for ruling him out when there was not anything clear on hot spot."
