What a bizarre finish to that innings, they simply collapsed late the Redbacks, due in part to some good bowling from Dorey and Lewis. Fortunately for the visitors, they've got Kieron Pollard who along with Daniel Harris, blasted the Redbacks to a big score of 202.
Join me again at 7.05pm local time for the run chase, which will feature the second of the big hitting West Indians - Chris Gayle. Match State: Innings Break
