commentary

Over 10. Power Play Fielding. 1 run. Bowler: Jason Holder. Australia: 71/1(rr 7.10)

Holder to Khawaja. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Narine. A scampered single completes a comprehensive win for Australia and they lead the 5 match series 1-0. Michael Clarke's decision to elevate Glenn Maxwell to the top of the order proved a masterstroke as he blasted 51 not out from just 35 balls to ease the home side to victory. Jason Holder was one of the few positives for West Indies in this match, as he followed up a dogged batting display with a respectable effort with the ball, picking up the solitary wicket during the run chase.

OUT! Caught. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Holder to Finch. Length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, top edge in the air uncontrolled to wicketkeeper, fielded by Thomas. It might be all in vain, but West Indies have at least taken a wicket. Finch slashes at one outside off stump and it looks a clear edge behind to Thomas but Reiffel doesn't raise the finger. Sammy asks for a review and although Hotspot was inconclusive, the third umpire was happy to send Finch on his way after hearing the nick as the ball went past the bat.
