West Indies were in a series of winning positions in both innings but couldn't slam the door shut. The defending champions showed their mettle to keep fighting back before coming out on top. Along with the England v Pakistan match, this is right near the top of the heap in terms of the best contest of the tournament so far. Pleasure to have you join us for the ride. For Alex Malcolm, Ranjith and the rest of the scoring team, I'm Peter Della Penna. Make sure to come back tomorrow for live coverage of the showdown in Bristol between Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Take care for now!

Aaron Finch: "We just kept hanging in there. From 4 for 30-odd to be able to fight back, that partnership between Alex Carey and Steve Smith to get us a little deeper and then Nathan Coulter-Nile to play the way he did was exceptional. It's not ideal for the top order to miss out and put us in that position but even with the ball we hung in there and I'm really proud of the boys today."

Jason Holder: "Obviously disappointed. I thought we were well in the game there. Just a few irresponsible shots when we probably just needed to tap it around a little bit more. Having said that, I still think there's lots of positives to take out of this game." Asked about the biggest moment, the captain says, "We dropped Coulter-Nile when he was about 60-odd and he got about another 30 runs. That was one pivotal moment but obviously the batting. If we came here at the start of the day and limited Australia to 280, we'd have taken that. The batters need to take the responsibility and knock it off. It's still early days. We have to be more consistent. When we have teams down, we have to keep them down."

Nathan Coulter-Nile is Man of the Match - "I didn't think I'd get that much [92] but happy to. I got a bit of a spray for getting out when Smithy was on 80 in one of the practice games so I thought I'd just try to stick around for a bit. Luck went my way. A couple fell short, I got dropped, but that's the way cricket goes. We back ourselves to defend anything. If we had got bowled out for 150, we'd still back ourselves. The wicket was a bit up and down but I got settled in and got used to it at the end. It looked like West Indies were on track the whole way until Starcky took three or four at the end there."

Before the post-match particulars, here's a little preview of the most anticipated match of the 2019 French Open: Roger Federer vs Rafael Nadal!

6.32 Australia leak a series of boundaries at the end there but it matters little. This match was one of the best of the tournament so far, see-sawing back and forth almost from beginning to end. West Indies had Australia under heavy pressure in the first 20 overs but let the pressure go with some costly misses - Smith on 26 and Coulter-Nile on 61. The umpiring in this match left a lot to be desired but West Indies were bailed out numerous times on DRS. The Shimron Hetmyer runout and Andre Russell's regrettable slog vs. Starc were the hammer blows that gave Australia they high ground once and for all.

Coulter-Nile to Nurse, FOUR runs, another firm drive to a full ball on off beats mid-off, but it's all in vain.
Coulter-Nile to Nurse, FOUR runs, another short ball on the body, tickles a pull past short fine leg. Makes you wonder why they were content to pat out dot balls and turn down runs last over....
Coulter-Nile to Nurse, FOUR runs, full otuside off, driven past extra cover and beats the sweeper. Cosmetic adjustments to the final margin being made by Nurse.
Coulter-Nile to Nurse, FOUR runs, short on the body, fierce pull behind square from Nurse, about 7 balls too late.
Starc to Cottrell, OUT, yorker makes it five for Starc! Man of the Match just about locked up for him turning this chase haywire for West Indies. Cottrell backed away trying to make room over the off side but it was full and straight and shatters the stumps.

SS Cottrell b Starc 1 (7m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Stoinis to Nurse, 1 run, low full toss into the pads, huge lbw shout given not out. Double-noise for sure. Australia decides not to review. And with good reason, inside edge off the pads with the ball taking a carom to point.
Starc to Holder, OUT, Starc is winning this for Australia! The pressure looked like it was getting to Holder after missing out on a meaty full toss the previous ball. Starc follows it up with a bouncer on the leg stump line, he goes to pull but is late and it thuds off the gloves. The ball balloons to Zampa at short fine leg, he only needs to take three steps forward from the ring to claim this at chest height.

JO Holder c Zampa b Starc 51 (83m 57b 7x4 1x6) SR: 89.47

Starc to Brathwaite, OUT, slower ball brings a wicket! It was an attempted yorker with plenty of pace off it, met by Brathwaite at shin height as a low full toss, but completely miscues it off the toe of the bat high over mid-on. Finch backpedals 10 yards back and to the left before taking it with ease. The tension rises a few notches. Can Holder shepherd the tail across the line?

CR Brathwaite c Finch b Starc 16 (31m 17b 1x4 1x6) SR: 94.11

Cummins to Brathwaite, 1 run, nearly a runout! At both ends! Fullish length ball driven to mid-on. Warner fields and fires at the non-striker's end, would've been out by 3 yards if it hit but was wide by 2 yards. Cummins fields the miss mid-pitch and throws to Carey, nearly nabs Holder but he's just in by 4 inches. Replay shows Carey knocked the bails off without the ball in his hands.
Cummins to Brathwaite, FOUR runs, short on off, Brathwaite goes to pull again, flat bats this over mid-off. Not timed well at all but straight enough to be safe from picking out Finch on the ring.
Coulter-Nile to Brathwaite, SIX runs, Brathwaite has officially joined the party! Another bouncer, wide outside off, Brathwaite has to drag this a long way to get it over midwicket, but that's pure muscle on the pull and it sails away.
Coulter-Nile to Holder, 1 run, short ball at full pace this time sits up on the off stump line, laces a ferocious pull on one bounce to cow corner, 50 up for Holder at a run a ball. Can he finish off the chase?
Cummins to Holder, no run, nearly another drag on! Good length ball angled into off stump, little footwork and a poke produces an inside edge lodged in between his feet.

Cummins returns for his ninth.

Coulter-Nile to Brathwaite, no run, so close! Good length ball on off, Brathwaite swats across the line, leading edge flutters just above Coulter-Nile's leaping effort. Fingertips!
Coulter-Nile to Brathwaite, no run, good length ball angled in from off stump, Brathwaite jams his bat down belatedly and the ball skids off the ground and bounces over the stumps. Hands on head from Coulter-Nile.
Zampa to Holder, FOUR runs, full on fourth stump, Holder prods tentatively and an edge goes through vacant slip before racing away!

The Russell wicket has brought West Indies win forecast from 63% down to 39%.

Zampa to Holder, FOUR runs, floated full outside off, firm drive by Holder screeches past Smith at short extra cover and beats long-off to the rope.
Coulter-Nile to Brathwaite, FOUR runs, length ball angling into off, heaved over midwicket with power.
Starc to Russell, OUT, Russell's fiery cameo ended by Starc! And a brilliant take by Maxwell too! Russell continues backing away from leg stump for a mow over midwicket, Starc targets leg stump and Russell gets a leading edge skier over point. Maxwell runs out from the circle taking this over the shoulder a third of the way to the rope. Sensational grab, 8/10 on degree of difficulty but it was bog standard for Maxwell. Whatever Holder said to Russell at the start of the over to have him rein in his aggression failed to produce the desired effect from the captain. Totally unnecessary from Russell at this stage.

AD Russell c Maxwell b Starc 15 (19m 11b 2x4 1x6) SR: 136.36

Starc to Russell, FOUR runs, fighting fire with fire! Attempted yorker tailing away from Russell backing away from the stumps, it was heading straight for middle but Russell drills it past mid-off for a boundary.
