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..
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."
short ball on the body, Holder takes a hit on his stomach as he tries to glance that
fuller delivery on the off and middle, driven on the up to mid-off
comes up with the slower bouncer, but it goes over the batsman's head. Mitchell Johnson not very happy with the call.
makes room and swats a short of length delivery to midwicket with the toe-end of his bat
short ball down the leg side, everyone appeals for something, but it was way down the leg side
moves way outside leg, Johnson follows him with a short ball, Holder flat bats it to mid-on
another shot that highlights Holder's potential. He drives this full ball beautifully but hits the stumps at the non-striker's end
length ball on off stump, Holder comes forward to defend, inside edges the ball to his pads
Numero Quattro for Maxwell!!
but he moves out of the crease again, and Maxwell fires it wide of off again. Narine takes long to come back to the crease, by that time, Wade has done his job.
fires it wide outside off, Narine has to get back in crease as soon as realises he is not going to reach it.
Four in four...can we have more?
flatter delivery, makes do difference. He comes out and picks the ball of a length and goes over a leaping long-off fielder..
no. 3, to the same area as the previous one. Flighted, he charges down and smacks it over long-off
and another one, this one into the crowd beyond long-off
straight to the sight screen as Narine makes room and slogs it over the bowler's head for his first six
moves outside leg and Mitchell follows him with the short one, Holder goes for a pull but doesn't connect
full and fast yorker on off stump, easily dug out back down the pitch
soooper shot from Holder! there is some batting talent in this guy. He makes room by moving outside leg stump and carves a length delivery over extra cover for a one-bounce four
back of length on the middle stump, defended back to the bowler
a quick short ball as Holder starts moving down the leg side, but the ball goes further down the leg side and is called a wide
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."
