Mashrafe Mortaza to Gayle,
goes down the track, and caught! whoa, the big fish, Gayle was going after every ball and mistiming a lot of them, he went after this one too, got very under it, gets a lot of elevation but not the distance. Gazi is at mid-off and he catches it well, so when he is not picking up Gayle's wicket, he is catching him out!

Elias Sunny to Samuels,
gone, caught at long-off! third time unlucky Samuels, he was going after them and he tried to hit it over long-off, but the turn defeats the stroke, gets it in the bottom of the bat, it flies off to long-off who takes a very easy catch there!

Abdur Razzak to Smith,
Bowled him, first baller! Samuels had played one like this but got an inside edge last over, this one though Dwayne Smith misses completely and is castled! a straighter one sneaks through his non-existing defenses and the batsman walks back

Elias Sunny to Powell,
gone, lbw, Sunny is on fire! that spins in viciously again, it was very outside the off stump the batsman was on the back foot, wanting to tuck it away to the deep fielder on the leg side but misses it, the ball hits him in line with the off stump and despite the huge amount of turn, it did look like it would go on to his the stumps
KOA Powell lbw b Elias Sunny 26 (78m 44b 4x4 0x6) SR: 59.09
Mahmudullah to Pollard,
gone, caught behind this time! one went straight, the other spun in, Pollard was always going to be guessing this one, it was going straight on and the batsman pushed at it, gets bit of a thin outside edge through to the keeper. The bowler almost did not appeal and joined in only after the keeper went up and the umpire took a lot of time before giving the decision...did he edge it?
KA Pollard c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Mahmudullah 2 (15m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 14.28
Mahmudullah to Thomas,
what a ball Murali, bowled him! that pitches outside off, slightly shorter and fizzes past the inside edge to take the top of the stumps! in fact, it did hit a bit of an edge but what turn, that would have pleased Muralitharan, such was the turn there...six down now and this could be over quickly unless Sammy can unleash a few
DC Thomas b Mahmudullah 10 (26m 33b 1x4 0x6) SR: 30.30
Sohag Gazi to Bravo,
soft dismissal, caught and bowled! it was slower, Bravo wanted to turn it away to the leg side but he only manages to push it back to the bowler and lo and behold! he accepts a caught-and-bowled!
DM Bravo c & b Sohag Gazi 34 (93m 61b 3x4 0x6) SR: 55.73
Mahmudullah to Permaul,
outside the off and he goes for a slog sweep, but the top-edge carries to the deep square-leg fielder, easily caught! why would he play this shot when he has six overs remaining and his captain batting well at the other end?
V Permaul c Nasir Hossain b Mahmudullah 1 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33
Abdur Razzak to Narine,
reverse-sweep and caught! wow! I rub my eyes to check whether those last two balls were batted by a number 10, one driven inside out for a four and this time he tries to smash a reverse sweep, gets a top edge to point and he is on his way!
SP Narine c Mominul Haque b Abdur Razzak 13 (12m 8b 2x4 0x6) SR: 162.50
