that is it. Short and wide, steered past point as WI post a four-wicket win to beat Australia
8.38pm The music is blaring, the crowd is singing, WI players shake hands with each other and joy abounds Basseterre because West Indies have done exceptionally well in their chase to thrash Australia on a tricky surface. Chasing 266, West Indies' openers gave them a lightning start to set up the chase. Significant contributions through the middle order, led by Samuels' 92, ensured there were no hiccups against a quality bowling attack. This win opens up this tri-series nicely.
Time for the presentation.
Marlon Samuels is the Man of the Match: "Most important thing was we won the game. Better than making a 100 and the team lose. There are some teams that you don't score against. We are gelling together a steam, we are building a team. We'll be hard to beat in the future."
Steven Smith: "We were 15-20 short. Should have got a few more than we did. Credit to West Indies, they bowled well. We didn't execute as well as we liked. Got to find ways to score a few more. Have to try to keep in the game and take wickets to make it go for as long as possible. We didn't field like an Australian side today, not up to scratch."
Jason Holder: "Had a bit of bounce early in the pitch. Important to control the Powerplay. We controlled reasonably well and knew we were one wicket away from getting into their middle order. Batsmen put up their hands today. That's what we ask of batsmen. Means a lot to us, we have lacked consistency over the past few years.
shortish on off, defended by his feet
full and wide outside off, Pollard tries to clear midwicket again but toe-ends to third man
short and wide, Pollard has a loose waft but misses
smashed over midwicket for three. Ran down to the pitch and flicked it away to bring WI closer
shortish and wide, Pollard tries to get on top of the bounce but cannot. Goes through with his cut and gets it past point, races away
opens the bat face to get this one tho third man
fullish on off, steered to point
good length on off, tapped to point
back of a length on middle, Pollard shimmies and works to square leg
Hazlewood comes back
honing in on that off stump but Brathwaite's bat intervenes. Much better over from NCN
yorker on off, blocked
gone. Holder is given. But he opts for the review. Good length delivery outside off, which jags back in again. Holder attempts a big swing and the ball goes through between bat and pad. Looks like he has missed it, but there is a sound. Not sure what it is. Swerves back in and Wade collects well, diving to his left. Not enough evidence to overturn this apparently, and Holder cannot believe it. Hangs on his bat before trudging off ever so slowly. Would have stayed not out had he been given not out. On replays, looks like there is a big deviation as the ball passes the bat, so good decision
full on off, good line that. Driven to cover
that is probably where NCN should have been from the start. Bowls the offcutter slightly wider outside off, and Ramdin wants to guide to third man but doesn't account for prodigious movement back into him. Goes right in the gap between bat and pad and clatters into off stump
whipped past square leg this time and there is no deep fielder so WI inch closer. Looking for that inswinger but too straight again
strays down leg for a wide
phew. That is ridiculous. Unbelievable. Nonsense. What? Tossed up outside off, Pollard tried to go over long-on by dragging it but got more of a leading edge which flies over cover. And went a fair way back too. A 90 degree change in shot direction, still enough muscle behind it.
flat on middle and leg, pushed to midwicket
shortish and wide, slashed to deep point
Matthew: "That's the second time I've seen Smith yell at the umpire as if demanding an explanation from the umpire when not getting his way, it's a terrible thing to see from a captain"
