Australia's fast bowler Mitchell Starc (centre) celebrates taking one of his five wickets for 20 runs during the one-day international cricket match between Australia and the West Indies at the WACA ground on February 1, 2013.

Set 267 to win after Bailey's unbeaten 125 rescued the Australian innings, the West Indies were cruising at 159 for three in the run chase, before the return of Starc to the attack turned the match again as the tourists were bowled out 212 in the 39th over.
