View dismissal JA Burns st †Ramdin b KC Brathwaite 128 309 230 16 1 55.65
73.2 52.5 mph, got him! Classic offie's dismissal! Burns skips down the pitch but Brathwaite sees him coming and fires it a bit quicker and shorter outside off. It doesn't turn, it slips past the edge of his prodding bat, and Ramdin has the bails off in a flash. Big ovation for Burns as he walks back, this has been a very impressive innings, especially the discipline outside off stump until he reached his hundred 287/2
View dismissal DA Warner c Samuels b Taylor 23 20 12 5 0 191.66
4.1 90.7 mph, short ball, juggle, gone! Looked to pull that from outside off, Warner, and it hurried on to him and he was a touch late on it. Pops up in the air off the high part of the bat, near the sticker, and lobs up towards Samuels running to his right from short extra cover. Can't quite grab it on the first or second attempt, but it settles nicely in his hands on the third. 29/1
View dismissal UT Khawaja c †Ramdin b Taylor 144 331 227 6 1 63.43
84.1 81.8 mph, gone, strangled down the leg side. Shortish ball angling down the leg side, and Khawaja gets a little tickle on it while looking to work it off his hips, and Ramdin moves smartly to his right, just a couple of understated steps, and takes a nice catch. Khawaja soaks in warm applause from the crowd as he walks back to the dressing room. He's shown a terrific appetite for runs ever since his Test comeback. 328/3

  West Indies 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal KC Brathwaite c Burns b Lyon 17 58 48 0 0 35.41
15.1 55.1 mph, got him! Beautifully bowled, tossed it up on off stump, and got it to dip on Brathwaite, who came forward to defend, ended up playing with hard hands, and inside edged into forward short leg's lap as Lyon achieved a bit of extra bounce 35/1
View dismissal R Chandrika lbw b Pattinson 25 95 76 1 0 32.89
23.5 87.8 mph, big appeal for lbw as Chandrika pads up to a reverse-swinging ball, and it's given. Chandrika reviews it, and I guess height is the only issue. Hit him on the flap of the back pad, just outside off. Ball-tracking says it's hitting a good chunk of the top of middle stump, so he'll have to walk back 50/2
View dismissal DM Bravo c Smith b Pattinson 81 363 204 8 0 39.70
100.3 87.0 mph, No hundred for Bravo! He falls five minutes before tea. Pattinson's front-foot is fine. West Indies have been wrapped up for 271. Fullish and in the channel outside off, Bravo chases it with a drive and slices it to gully. Smith bends low and snaps it up even as the ball was dying on him 271/10
View dismissal MN Samuels lbw b Pattinson 0 6 3 0 0 0.00
25.2 gone, that is plumb. Samuels is not the ideal batsman coming in when the ball is reversing. His lack of footwork leaves him severely exposed. Perfect length from Pattinson, quick, darting in to smack his pad right in front of middle stump as he looks to defend with feet rooted to the crease 50/3
View dismissal J Blackwood c & b Lyon 28 58 46 4 1 60.86
37.5 53.8 mph, got him, Lyon has another. There's that dip again, beats Blackwood in the air as he charges down the track again. Checks his shot, looking to whip it down the ground, and ends up offering a simple, waist-high return catch 82/4
View dismissal D Ramdin c Burns b Siddle 0 9 4 0 0 0.00
40.1 52.5 mph, this is clearly a plan. Siddle swerves another one into the pads and Ramdin flicks in the air. Burns dives to his right at square leg, and this time he catches it a good foot above the ground. West Indies are five down and floundering 83/5
View dismissal JO Holder* b Siddle 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
40.2 83.8 mph, bowled him! Siddle is on fire! Full, no footwork from Holder, and it straightened past the outside edge to peg back off stump 83/6
View dismissal CR Brathwaite c & b Lyon 59 130 126 2 1 46.82
71.3 55.3 mph, got him, right on the brink of lunch! floats it across towards off stump, and that's an unusually uncertain shot from Brathwaite, maybe it didn't turn as much as expected, and Brathwaite, looking to flick, gets a bit of a leading edge on it and Lyon leaps to his right to catch it at shoulder height 173/7
View dismissal KAJ Roach lbw b Pattinson 22 47 44 3 0 50.00
83.4 86.1 mph, that's plumb. Roach caught on the shuffle by the full, straight ball. He's reviewed, but I can't see this being overturned. Let's see now. Pattinson hasn't overstepped, there is no inside edge. What does ball tracking say? Struck him in line with middle, hitting the inside part of leg stump, he's a goner. 215/8
View dismissal JE Taylor c †Nevill b Lyon 15 29 21 2 0 71.42
89.5 54.0 mph, Taylor can't. The G.O.A.T strikes! The finger goes up. Lyon gets it to straighten after pitching outside off, the batsman is bound to the crease as he has a loose poke at it and edges behind 239/9

View dismissal JA Burns c KC Brathwaite b Holder 5 10 9 1 0 55.55
1.5 87.7 mph, got him! This one curls away from a lovely fullish length wide of off stump. Burns is in the mood to play his shots, but his feet go nowhere, his hands go chasing wide of his body, and the nick carries nicely to second slip 7/1
View dismissal DA Warner c Holder b CR Brathwaite 17 50 22 1 0 77.27
10.3 82.1 mph, gone, and that's Brathwaite's first Test wicket! Short ball angling into Warner, and he leans away looking to ramp over gully, but he doesn't get the desired elevation and Holder takes a good catch over his shoulder, falling to his left. Brathwaite is jubilant, pulls off a delighted if ill-coordinated sliding celebration after missing a high-five with the catcher 46/2
View dismissal UT Khawaja c †Ramdin b Holder 56 100 61 5 0 91.80
22.4 well, well, Khawaja outsmarts himself. Shaped to move away from leg stump first, then moved the other way to finish outside off. Holder followed him with a fullish slower ball, which he looked to lap-sweep, and ended up edging it to the keeper. Hang on, he's more or less middled it 123/3

View dismissal KC Brathwaite c Smith b Lyon 31 46 34 2 0 91.17
11.3 56.7 mph, gone! He was looking so good, and as wise old cricketers often say, the ball after a good shot is often quite dangerous for batsmen. This wasn't short or wide enough to cut, and it got big on him as he went for the shot and only managed to steer it to slip 35/1
View dismissal R Chandrika lbw b Pattinson 37 165 130 2 0 28.46
38.5 85.3 mph, big lbw shout, given! This was beautifully bowled, pulls his length back just a couple of inches from the previous ball, and Chandrika played the same sort of shot. The reduction of length allowed it to swing in, past his inside edge. Hits him on the back thigh, and it was given out without much hesitation. Chandrika consults with Samuels and reviews. Impact in line, middle and off, and ball-tracking says it was clipping the very top of leg stump, so it stays with the on-field decision 91/3
View dismissal DM Bravo c †Nevill b Siddle 21 93 61 1 0 34.42
33.4 81.8 mph, gone! Siddle produces a beauty on the full side of good length, curling away slightly to accentuate the angle away from Bravo. Didn't need to be playing at it, particularly since he wasn't really playing an attacking shot, just a push at it with a slightly open face, and Nevill dives across first slip again and takes an excellent catch 83/2
View dismissal MN Samuels c †Nevill b Marsh 19 77 49 2 0 38.77
50.3 81.6 mph, got him! beautifully bowled by Marsh, length ball in the corridor, straightening to produce the edge as Samuels pokes at it instinctively, following the movement of the ball. No footwork at all 118/4
View dismissal J Blackwood lbw b Lyon 20 79 48 3 0 41.66
57.3 55.5 mph, not as short and he goes for the pull again, the ball turns in, hits him on the back thigh, and the lbw appeal is immediately upheld. They decide not to review, and on first sight it looks like the right decision. His back leg was bent, and it hit him in line with middle and off 150/5
View dismissal D Ramdin c †Nevill b Marsh 59 123 90 8 0 65.55
78.3 80.5 mph, and that is the breakthrough. Beautiful ball from Marsh, a fullish length but not quite up there for the drive. Right there in the corridor, and it straightens away to take Ramdin's edge as he pushes his bat out a long way in front of his pad, looking for that drive through mid-off 250/6
View dismissal JO Holder* c Hazlewood b Marsh 68 136 86 7 2 79.06
86.6 81.6 mph, got him! That was full on off stump and Holder checked his drive, maybe it held up a bit on the pitch. No feet, and he pushed at it in front of his body, and ended up scooping it straight to mid-off 274/8
View dismissal CR Brathwaite b Lyon 2 4 4 0 0 50.00
79.3 55.0 mph, and is that bowled? Beautiful delivery in any case, drifting away as it so often does, causing the batsman to push down the wrong line in defence. Then it turned in and... and it's just nudged the top of the off bail. A wonderful sight in slow-motion, and then it falls forward off its groove 253/7
View dismissal KAJ Roach c Warner b Pattinson 11 38 25 2 0 44.00
87.3 84.5 mph, got him, Australia only need one wicket now. Perfectly directed, hits the pitch hard, short of a good length, gets it to rise and straighten on off stump, and Roach is squared up, nicks it off the shoulder of the bat to third slip 278/9
View dismissal JE Taylor c Pattinson b Marsh 0 8 3 0 0 0.00
88.3 short on off stump, and Australia have won the Frank Worrell Trophy! Goes for the pull, doesn't get hold of it, it goes high in the air off the top edge and Pattinson moves to his left at long leg and dives to take a well-judged catch at long leg 282/10
