    3.6 caught at backward point! He was hanging back a touch because of the bouncer, it was a length ball wide, he tried to square drive on the up, didn't get on top of the bounce and just bunted a catch to Hetmyer at backward point who is in quite close! Cottrell salutes! 26/2
    2.2 caught behind! Cracking delivery! Good length, angled in towards off stump, he's forced to defend half forward, it nipped off the seam, scratched the outside edge and a simple catch for Hope! What a beautiful piece of fast bowling! That first over is a distant memory now! 15/1
    6.6 caught behind! A screamer from Hope! A one hander! The short barrage unsettled him. This was full angled across, he backed away to try and drive on the up, got a thick edge, Hope dived full length to his left in front of first and plucked it one handed! It would not have carried to Gayle at slip! Superb stuff from the Windies! 36/3
    44.2 Cottrell with a screamer! No turf trolls eating him up this time at long leg! Fullish length on a fifth stump line. Smith shuffles across once more to flick this high over backward square, Cottrell made an absolute mess of a chance on 26 in an identical slot, this time sprints along the rope 20 yards moving left at full speed and stabs at it with his left hand, knifing it out of the air, then flicks it up before stepping over the rope before reclaiming it after reestablishing himself inside the field of play. 10 out of 10 for sure! 249/7
    7.4 skied straight up! Caught by Hope! Maxwell out pulling second ball! This was another excellent bouncer, very high and well directed, he tried to pull and skied it straight up, Hope wanders underneath it and takes a simple catch! Another salute from Sheldon. 38/4
    16.1 sucker ball snares a wicket for the captain! Holder bowled it a touch short on off stump angling into Stoinis. It sat up there for him waiting to be spanked but Stoinis neither rolls the wrists over it nor gets requisite elevation to clear Nicholas Pooran in the ring at midwicket. Straight to him at chest height. West Indies rollicking start with the ball continues. 79/5
    30.4 caught behind! Dre Russ does the trick! 132kph, good length, angled across and running away off the seam, Carey caught on the crease, pushes away from the body and gets a thin edge through to Hope! Huge breakthrough that for West Indies. 147/6
    48.2 Coulter-Nile falls four short of breaking the record for a No. 8 in ODIs! It was in the slot outside off, he went for glory trying to clear Holder at wide long-off but got under it just a bit too much. The bat turned on connection too so wasn't timed as well as he wanted. In the air for awhile before coming down to the West Indies captain three yards inside the rope. 284/9
    46.1 slower bouncer, Cummins struggles keeping his hands back going to pull, skies it to deep square leg, Cottrell settles under it 10 yards in from the rope. This was 3/10 on the difficulty scale compared to the absurd one-hander he took to dismiss Smith. 268/8
    48.6 Brathwaite rewarded for pitching it up again, in the slot on off, Starc tried to heave it over Holder at wide long-on but didn't get under it enough and the tallest man on the field has no issues claiming this one roving left a few yards inside the rope at chest height. 288/10

    4.5 stone dead this time around! Starc couldn't pierce Gayle with the yorker on the previous ball but this time around Gayle is late getting the bat down on an 86 mph delivery pitching very full and hitting him low on the shin in front of middle. After waiting 12 seconds while chatting with Hope, Gayle finally calls for the review.... Ball-tracking confirms it was clipping leg-stump on umpire's call. Three strikes (on DRS) and you're out! West Indies retain their review though. 31/2
    1.4 lovely lines from the start by Cummins rewarded! He was probing away consistently on that fourth stump line. This one holds its line on fourth stump going across instead of swinging in, angles across Lewis on a good to fullish length at 86 mph, Lewis prods with a diagonal bat angle and the ball clips the edge flying to Smith's right at second slip, taken at thigh height crouching into a mini-slide to cushion the take. 7/1
    34.6 leg stump half-volley and he chips it to mid-on! Hope wanted to work this through square leg but he gets a leading edge that balloons to Khawaja on the ring at mid-on. After surviving the short ball barrage from Cummins at the start of his innings, he gets out to a fairly innocuous ball. The pendulum swings back towards Australia! 190/5
    19.1 caught at backward point! A one hander from Finch! Brilliant catch. It was full and drifting away from Pooran, he tried to drive with a flourish down the ground, sliced a thick outside edge high to backward point, Finch ran back and reached up with the left hand and it stuck! He didn't get a long way off the ground Finch, but he held on! 99/3
    27.2 mix up and a run out! Shorter outside off, he gives room and punches wide of mid off, Hetmyer takes off at the non-striker's but Hope stops running, sends him back, Cummins swoops and throws to Maxwell and Hetmyer is stranded! Hope might have cooked his partner there. 149/4
    45.6 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. 252/8
    38.5 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. 216/6
    45.3 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? 252/7

    47.3 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. 256/9
