Highlights
Dwayne Bravo to Warner, out Caught by Narine!! On leg stump. Warner tries to flick it to the leg side but is into his shot too early. One hand comes off the bat while Warner tries to play that shot. The ball goes high up in the air off the leading edge, straight to Narine who takes a comfortable catch at mid-on. West Indies have struck early. Warner c Narine b Dwayne Bravo 1(4)
Dwayne Bravo to Forrest, FOUR, easy pickings for Forrest! Full on the pads. Forrest leans forward and just tucks it off his pads to backward square leg for a boundary
Roach to Forrest, FOUR, good timing! Length ball on the pads. Forrest waits on it and tucks it away off the pads to backward square leg for a boundary. The ball just flew off the bat
Dwayne Bravo to Shane Watson, FOUR, glorious drive! Full outside the off stump. Shane Watson gets onto the front foot and employs the full blooded drive to deep extra cover. The ball races away to the fence for another boundary
Dwayne Bravo to Shane Watson, SIX, amazing strike from Shane Watson! Full on middle. Shane Watson gets down low and drives it hard and in the air. The ball sails into the stands at long on for a maximum
Roach to Shane Watson, SIX, another big blow from Shane Watson! Short outside the off stump. Shane Watson pulls it across the line with immense power and the ball goes over the fence at deep mid wicket
Dwayne Bravo to Shane Watson, FOUR, streaky boundary for Shane Watson! Length ball on the off stump. Pitches and jags back in and cramps Shane Watson for room. Shane Watson tries to guide it down to third man and the ball takes a thick outside edge and goes there in the end. Baugh behind the stumps put in a full length dive to no effect
Dwayne Bravo to Shane Watson, 1 run, dropped! Pitched up a little more outside the off stump. Shane Watson goes for a drive and then tries to pull out of the shot. The ball takes the outside edge again and goes past Baugh who puts in a huge dive. Baugh gets a glove on it but eventually the ball trickles away to third man
Roach to Forrest, FOUR, fuller length delivery on the off stump. Forrest gets onto the front foot and drives it straight back past the bowler. The ball goes down to long off for a boundary
Roach to Forrest, FOUR, length ball outside the off stump. Forrest pushes at it but gets the outside edge and the ball runs away down to third man for a boundary. Australia are really riding their luck at the moment
Sammy to Shane Watson, out Caught by Roach!! Back of a length on the off stump. Shane Watson tries to pull it away across the line but gets into his shot a little early. The ball takes the toe end of the bat and goes high up in the air. Roach at mid-on gets under it and takes it nicely to dismiss the opposing captain. Sammy has struck off his first ball! Shane Watson c Roach b Sammy 28(24) [4s-2 6s-2]
Sammy to George Bailey, FOUR, poor delivery! Short on middle and off. George Bailey pulls it away with ease to backward square leg. Russell tries to run around the boundary and cut it off but the ball goes under his finger tips and crosses the boundary
Sammy to Forrest, out Caught by Charles!! Amazing catch! Length delivery on the off stump. Forrest tries to give it a whack across the line but gets the edge that goes up in the air towards third man. Charles runs forward and dives ahead to take a good low catch. Unfortunately Charles seems to have injured his right shoulder. He has now left the field of play. Forrest c Charles b Sammy 24(28) [4s-4]
Dwayne Bravo to Michael Hussey, FOUR, lovely placement! Slightly short and wide outside the off stump. Michael Hussey gets down low and cuts it between two fielders down to the fence at third man
Sammy to George Bailey, SIX, effortless stroke from the Tasmanian. It was a harmless delivery on middle, George Bailey just flicked it through the line over mid on and it carried over the ropes.
Sammy to Michael Hussey, FOUR, silken batting from Michael Hussey. Short and just outside off, Michael Hussey waits for it and cuts it behind point. The ball races away to the boundary. Big over for Australia
Roach to Michael Hussey, FOUR, glorious batting from Michael Hussey, few can play the cover drive as well as he does. Full and almost on a yorker length outside off, Michael Hussey short arm jabs it through the cover region along the ground for a boundary
Andre Russell to George Bailey, out Caught by Baugh!! That's a big wicket. Bailey was looking really compact. Short and outside off, George Bailey looks to play the late cut, but edges it to the keeper Baugh who takes a safe catch. Russel's decision to stay on the field and bowl has paid off. Australia in a spot of bother. George Bailey c Baugh b Andre Russell 25(36) [4s-1 6s-1]
Andre Russell to Michael Hussey, out Caught by Baugh!! Two in three balls! Russel is on fire. Short and down the leg side, Michael Hussey looks to pull, the ball hits the under side of the glove and nestles into the gloves of Baugh. Umpire Brathwaite took some time to give the decision, but ultimately it was the right one as Mr Cricket started walking. Both the set batsmen leave, Australia in deep, deep trouble. Michael Hussey c Baugh b Andre Russell 26(30) [4s-3]
Narine to David Hussey, FOUR, very well played by David Hussey. It was the seam up delivery outside off, it actually nipped away, David Hussey spotted it and ran it down past short third man for a boundary
Andre Russell to David Hussey, FOUR, this might be aggressive bowling, but the Aussies do know how to play the short stuff. David Hussey gets into position and pulls it to the deep midwicket boundary.
Andre Russell to Wade, FOUR, if someone bullies you , you just don't cow down. Wade has done just that. Short and on the stumps, Wade gets into position and hooks it to the deep midwicket boundary.
Sammy to Wade, FOUR, powerful shot from Wade. Full and wide outside off, Wade plants his front foot forward and drives it through the covers for a glorious boundary
Sammy to Wade, 1 run, DROPPED! Would you believe it? It's Pollard who drops it. Full and outside off, Wade gets forward and drives uppishly to Pollard at point. It flies away to him and he fails to hold onto a fairly simple chance.
Marlon Samuels to David Hussey, FOUR, easily done. Short and down the leg side, David Hussey helps it past square for a boundary. Hussey needs to stay at the crease for as long as possible
Marlon Samuels to David Hussey, FOUR, this is really bad bowling from Marlon Samuels. Floated up outside off, David Hussey guides it to past the short third man fielder for a boundary.
Pollard to David Hussey, FOUR, too short from Pollard, short of a length delivery outside off, sits up to be pulled. David Hussey rocks back and pulls it past mid-wicket for a boundary
Pollard to David Hussey, FOUR, this is poor bowling from Pollard, drops this one horridly short again, David Hussey waits on it and pulls it behind square for another boundary
Pollard to David Hussey, FOUR, Cracking shot, width outside off from Pollard, short and wide outside off, David Hussey gets on top of the bounce and cuts it in front of point for a boundary
Pollard to David Hussey, 1 run, good length delivery outside off, David Hussey drives it on the up square on the off-side for a single, brings up his 11th FIFTY
Pollard to Wade, out Caught by Andre Russell!! Brain-Fade from Wade. This was another slower delivery outside off, Wade skipped down the track and looked to go back over the bowler's head, he did not get enough bat nor the distance behind the shot. The ball spoons in the air and when it comes down, Russell is safely underneath it at long off. The partnership has been broken and the tail has been exposed. Wade c Andre Russell b Pollard 15(36) [4s-2]
Narine to Brett Lee, FOUR, nicely done by Brett Lee, short delivery that spun back in, Brett Lee backs away, opens the face of the bat and steers it wide of short third man for a boundary
Narine to Brett Lee, no run, flighted delivery spinning towards the pads, Brett Lee lunged forward in defence, the ball lobbed off his pads and bobbled in the air. Baugh came around to take the catch, the appeal was turned down by umpire Tarapore. Replays seemed to be inconclusive and the original decision stood
Roach to David Hussey, out Bowled!! Final nail in Australian coffin. This was a fuller length delivery on the off-stump that held its line, David Hussey was backing way as he looked to slug it over mid-wicket. He misses and hears the sound of timber. The crowd roars in appreciation, they realise that they are closer towards taking the lead in this ODI series. David Hussey b Roach 57(54) [4s-7]
Roach to Brett Lee, FOUR, Brett Lee gives the charge to a length delivery and manages an inside edge which races past the keeper and into the fence
Roach to Brett Lee, FOUR, Cracking shot. This was full and on the middle, Brett Lee backs away and drills it past extra cover for a boundary

Roach to Brett Lee, SIX, magnificent, Brett Lee is giving his reply to Roach, backs away to a fuller length delivery and swings it through the line. The ball sails deep into the stands at long on for a maximum
Roach to Brett Lee, SIX, Terrific shot, Roach has got a pasting in this over. Short delivery on the stumps, Brett Lee backs away and pulls it over the mid-wicket fence for a maximum. 24 came from that over, not even Pollard managed it
Dwayne Bravo to Brett Lee, SIX, Majestic! This was overpitched outside off, Brett Lee was backing away, throws the bat at that, gets it high and handsome over extra cover. No stopping that, the ball sails deep into the stands
Dwayne Bravo to Brett Lee, FOUR, nicely done by Lee, backs away to a slower short of length and clips it in the air well wide of the man at fine-leg, great start to the over
Dwayne Bravo to Clint McKay, out Caught by Pollard!! The change of pace has worked for Bravo. This was the slower ball on the stumps, Clint McKay was looking to go back over the bowler's head, ends up dragging it towards Pollard at long on. He can do no wrong today, the catch is taken safely and the eighth Aussie batsman makes his way back to the hut. Clint McKay c Pollard b Dwayne Bravo 2(12)
Andre Russell to Brett Lee, SIX, Lee is not gonna give this chase up, length delivery on the stump, Brett Lee swings through the line and clears long on with ease, raises his 3rd ODI FIFTY as well
Andre Russell to Brett Lee, SIX, Cracking shot. It was overpitched on the stumps, Brett Lee gets underneath the ball and lofts it back over the bowler's head for another maximum
Narine to Doherty, out Caught by Sammy!! Narine strikes and Brett Lee is left pondering over. This was nicely tossed up outside off and spinning away, Doherty was looking to drive it towards cover, does not get to the pitch of the ball and ends up driving it uppishly to the right of Sammy at cover. West Indies are all but home now. Doherty c Sammy b Narine 1(6)
Roach to Brett Lee, out Caught by (sub)Mathurin!! It was a short delivery outside off and angling away, Brett Lee looks to smack it back over the bowler's head, he did not get enough bat on that, spoons to long off where Mathurin gets across to complete a sharp catch. A brave knock from Brett Lee has ended, he really gave WI a mighty scare. Brett Lee c (sub)Mathurin b Roach 59(48) [4s-5 6s-5]

Clint McKay to Barath, out Caught by Wade!! Barath's sizzling display of strokes comes to an end! Length ball outside the off stump. Pitches and rises sharply.

Barath c Wade b Clint McKay 41(31) [4s-9]
Shane Watson to Marlon Samuels, FOUR, sublime drive! Full outside the off stump. Marlon Samuels opens the face of the bat and drives it away square of the wicket for a boundary
Clint McKay to Charles, SIX, finally Charles gets going! Attack is the best form of defence and Charles has done just that! Full on middle and off. Charles just lifts it straight over the bowler's head and it goes over the fence for a maximum. That was as straight as straight can be
Brett Lee to Marlon Samuels, out Caught by Wade!! Good length outside the off stump. The ball pitches and rises sharply. Marlon Samuels has a feel for it and gets a faint edge that goes to the keeper. Wade has no problems in taking that catch as it comes to him at a comfortable height. So Samuels' struggle at the crease finally comes to an end. Marlon Samuels c Wade b Brett Lee 11(41) [4s-1]
Doherty to Charles, FOUR, risky sweep shot! Flatter on middle. Charles gets his front foot across and sweeps it to backward square leg for a boundary. Had he missed that then there might have been a case for leg before wicket

Doherty to Charles, out Caught by Brett Lee!! Nice catch in the deep! Flighted on the off stump. Charles tries to give it a whack but the bat turns in his hand and it goes in the air off the inner half of the bat to long on. Lee the man there jumps and takes tha catch at stomach height with one leg in the air. Charles was just starting to look at ease. West Indies will have to rebuild now. Charles c Brett Lee b Doherty 37(62) [4s-3 6s-1]
Doherty to Dwayne Bravo, out Lbw!! Dwayne Bravo was plumb! Flighted on middle. Dwayne Bravo gets onto the front foot and defends on the wrong line. He misses the ball and gets struck in front.

Hilfenhaus to Darren Bravo, FOUR, fab shot. This was full and shaping away from outside off, Darren Bravo gets to a great position and drives it exquisitely in the gap between cover and point for a boundary

Doherty to Pollard, FOUR, hammered, it was pitched up on the middle, Pollard gets to the pitch of the ball and drills it back over the bowler's head, beats long on with ease
Doherty to Darren Bravo, FOUR, shades of BCL on that, tossed up outside off, Darren Bravo gets to the pitch of the ball and drives it sweetly past extra cover for a cracking boundary
Doherty to Pollard, SIX, Massive! This was a trifle too short from Doherty, Pollard rocks back and pulls it flat over mid-wicket for a maximum, top shot from Kieron
Shane Watson to Darren Bravo, out Caught by David Hussey! Darren Bravo has thrown his wicket away, this was a good length delivery that was angling away from outside off. Darren Bravo was looking to go back over the bowler, gets a toe-end of the bat as the ball spoons in the air. David goes back from cover, settles himself underneath the skier and accepts the offering. The batting PP has yielded a wicket for the bowling team again. Darren Bravo c David Hussey b Shane Watson 25(50) [4s-3]
Brett Lee to Andre Russell, FOUR, Calypso power in full flow. Andre Russell backs away to a fuller length delivery outside off and plays a lofted extra cover drive over point for a one bounce boundary, Caribbean flavour on that
Shane Watson to Pollard, SIX, Magnificent!. It was a length delivery outside off, Pollard gets underneath the ball and sends it soaring deep into the stands at long off, he is looking top notch today
Shane Watson to Andre Russell, FOUR, beautiful shot. It was full and outside off, Andre Russell gets across, opens the face of the bat and splits the gap between point and short third man for a boundary
Shane Watson to Pollard, FOUR, delicately played. Shane Watson drifts this one on the pads, Pollard gets inside the line and flicks it past the despairing dive at short fine for a boundary
Doherty to Andre Russell, FOUR, the spinner is back and Andre Russell enjoys this, goes down on his knees and sweeps this one powerfully behind square for a boundary. WI are making a move now
Doherty to Pollard, FOUR, Clubbed. This was full and on the stumps, Pollard gets to the pitch of the ball and hammers it back over the umpire for a boundary. Brings up his 5th FIFTY
Clint McKay to Pollard, FOUR, Crashed, fuller length delivery outside off, Pollard backs away slightly and drives it with power wide of cover for a boundary
Clint McKay to Pollard, SIX, catch dropped by Forrest, this was full and on the stumps, Pollard clips it powerfully towards deep square-leg, Forrest was just inside the ropes, he gets across and ends up over-running. The ball goes through his hands and crosses the ropes on the full. He was always mindful of the ropes behind him and that cost a lapse in concentration
Shane Watson to Pollard, SIX, that looked like a mis-hit but that has the legs to carry all the way over long on. This was a length delivery on the stumps, Pollard was swirling back as he looked to pull, ends up playing it a lot straighter and the power takes it all the way
Shane Watson to Pollard, SIX, Massive. These are expensive last overs for Australia. Length delivery on the stumps, Pollard was deep into his crease and clobbers it deep into the stands at long on. This is some beastly hitting from Pollard. 15 came from this Watson over
Clint McKay to Pollard, 1 run, catch dropped by Doherty at short fine. This was full and on the pads, Pollard flicks it to the left of Xavier who shells an easy chance. There was a confused look from him later, he did not think that it was a catch
Shane Watson to Andre Russell, FOUR, you cannot bowl length deliveries to either of these two, Andre Russell gets underneath the ball and swings it powerfully past mid-wicket for a boundary
Shane Watson to Andre Russell, out Caught by George Bailey!! Shane Watson has terminated a dangerous stand. This was full and outside off, Andre Russell backed away and clattered it impressively towards extra cover where Bailey completes a stinging catch. It was not all that easy, but Bailey did well to move to his left and plucked it with both hands. Andre Russell c George Bailey b Shane Watson 34(32) [4s-4]
Clint McKay to Pollard, SIX, This was a low full toss on the pads, Pollard flicked it towards the onside, he did not get enough bat on that. Forrest is right on the edge near the ropes as he takes the catch, he realises that he is going over the ropes and throws the ball back in. Too late though, his right leg was just about touching the ropes, atleast that is what the 3rd umpire feels, it is a six
Clint McKay to Pollard, SIX, Pollard was ready for the slower ball this time, backs away and pulls it ferociously over mid-wicket for a superb six, a stunning blow indeed
Doherty to Sammy, FOUR, full and outside off, Sammy reaches out and carves it up and over extra cover for a boundary
Doherty to Sammy, FOUR, supreme shot. Doherty fires this one quicker and on the pads, Sammy backs away and drills it wide of Lee at long on, a sliding dive by Lee is in vain as the ball goes past the ropes
Brett Lee to Pollard, SIX, Monstrous!. Pollard was ready for the short ball, backs away and pulls it high and handsome deep into the stands at mid-wicket for a huge six. He is absolutely chuffed with himself, throws both his hands in the air as he celebrates, removes his helmet as he soaks in the moment, this is his 2nd ODI CENTURY
Brett Lee to Pollard, out Caught by Michael Hussey!! Pollard falls after a terrific hundred. This was full and on the stumps, Pollard was looking to go over mid-wicket and ends up slicing it to the elder Hussey at sweeper cover who takes it with both hands pointing forward. A huge ovation as Pollard walks off. Pollard c Michael Hussey b Brett Lee 102(70) [4s-5 6s-8]
Brett Lee to Sammy, SIX, Brett Lee continues to be short and he pays the penalty again. This was short and on the stumps, Sammy backs away and pulls it in front of square for a maximum, just about clears Forrest
Brett Lee to Sammy, FOUR, lovely shot. This was full and outside off, Sammy drills it powerfully and past the diving mid-off for a boundary
Brett Lee to Sammy, SIX, humongous. Watto looks shell shocked. This was a length delivery on the stumps, Sammy backs away and swings it cleanly with power. The fielder at widish long on was just a spectator. The ball would have cleared any outfield. Sammy is thrilled with his last over heroics and points in the direction of the dressing room as he clenches his fists. West Indies end with 294 on the board
