The hosts were then rolled for 212 in 45.4 overs as Hazlewood cleaned up the tail to grab figures of 5-50.

The decider was in the balance until Marsh blitzed the hosts’ form batsmen. The all-rounder snared 3-2 in the space of 12 legal deliveries, including the key scalps of Darren Bravo and Marlon Samuels. Bravo feathered an edge to wicketkeeper Wade, while Samuels chipped a slower ball to George Bailey in the covers.
