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.
