View dismissal MG Vandort lbw b Taylor 52 167 117 8 0 44.44
42.4 West Indies finally breakthrough.... Taylor gets it to swing in and land on a yorker length on middle and leg, Vandort tries to work it past square leg but is beaten for pace and struck close to his boot, easy decision for umpire Taufel 130/1
View dismissal SM Warnapura c †Ramdin b Bravo 120 269 226 14 0 53.09
69.3 Bravo does the trick....He bangs it in short of a length on off stump and gets it to slant into the left-hander, Warnapura tries to glance it fine but withdraws his stroke, the ball clips his gloves and he doesn't wait for the umpire's decision, he walks 205/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Smith b Taylor 50 164 114 3 0 43.85
82.1 loss of concentration from Sangakkara...Taylor pitches it full and wide outside off, Sangakkara rightfully goes for the drive but doesn't use his feet, he fails to cover the line and gets a thick edge to Smith at first slip who takes it above waist height 243/3
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* lbw b Gayle 136 369 234 13 0 58.11
157.2 Captain gets captain.... Gayle fires that in a little quicker, Jayawardene gets cheeky with another reverse sweep, the ball lands a little too full for comfort and Jayawardene meets the ball on the gloves. Gayle appeals and Bowden gives it out. The batsman looks a little bemused as the ball didn't strike his leg 457/7
View dismissal TT Samaraweera c sub (TM Dowlin) b Taylor 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
82.3 that's two for the over....Taylor pitches it up on off and middle, Samaraweera closes the face of the bat and goes for a lazy chip over the on side, the ball travels low to Travis Dowlin at short midwicket but he gets behind the ball and holds it with two hands 243/4
View dismissal TM Dilshan lbw b Taylor 20 50 39 4 0 51.28
94.4 Taylor sets him up and gets his reward... pitches just a shade outside the line of offstump and comes back in, Dilshan gets forward to defend but the ball skids through and strikes him on the pad, Taylor appeals confidently, Taufel thinks for a while and raises his finger. Replays showed the ball just missing the legstump but it's only marginal 277/5
View dismissal HAPW Jayawardene b Powell 21 107 83 2 0 25.30
120.5 the offstump is off the ground.... Powell does the trick with the new ball, he pitches it on a full length outside off and gets it to curve in to the right hander, Prasanna goes for the off drive but the ball creeps through the daylight between bat and pad and sends the offstump back by about two yards 331/6

View dismissal T Thushara c sub (TM Dowlin) b Gayle 0 7 9 0 0 0.00
159.6 switches to over the wicket, Gayle lands it quite short, the ball comes on really slowly to Tushara who shapes to pull, he doesn't get the desired elevation as Travis Dowlin steps backwards at deep midwicket and takes it easily. Dowlin's taken two already. So much for his 48 hours of fame 459/8

19.2 Thushara gets the first breakthrough, Thushara lands that just outside off and gets it to straighten, the ball keeps lower than Smith expected and a lazy waft away from his body results in a thin edge to Prasanna Jayawardene. There was no doubt about that edge 46/2

67.5 Really smart work by Prasanna Jayawardene, Vaas bowls the offcutter, Sarwan goes for the uppish drive but gets a thin outside edge, the ball travels very quickly to the keeper (who's standing upto the stumps), he juggles the ball and hangs onto it with his right hand, superb reflexes. Sarwan knows he's gone and West Indies have lost their mainstay for 80. 162/6
View dismissal MN Samuels c †HAPW Jayawardene b Thushara 5 24 19 1 0 26.31
25.1 poor shot by Samuels... Thushara drifts really wide outside off and gets it to shape away, Samuels stays rooted to the crease and tries to glide that wide of the slips, he gets a thick edge to Prasanna who falls to his right and cups it with both hands. It was not a wicket-taking delivery, just a very poor shot 58/3
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c Warnapura b Muralitharan 23 66 53 1 0 43.39
40.6 soft dismissal.... Murali flights that outside off, it lands in the length to drive through the offside, Chanderpaul ends up scooping it straight to Warnapura at short cover. Chanderpaul nearly breaks the stumps with his bat, that's how frustrated he is with that tame scoop 99/4
View dismissal DJ Bravo lbw b Muralitharan 8 13 16 1 0 50.00
44.3 Murali fires in the quicker one, that lands outside the line of offstump and turns in, Bravo has a big shuffle across the stumps and tries to glance it fine but is beaten for extra pace, the ball strikes him in line of middle and leg stumps. easy decision for Bowden 109/5

92.1 a wicket falls against the run of play, Vaas pitches it up fairly wide outside off and gets it to slant across, Ramdin drives away from his body and the ball flies off the toe of the bat to Sangakkara who takes it comfortably at first slip 236/8
View dismissal SJ Benn run out (Dilshan) 28 76 52 2 1 53.84
96.6 Vaas to Taylor, very unfortunate for Benn and West Indies, Taylor gets back and across and taps it down towards Dilshan at short cover, Benn sets off but Taylor sends him back, he turns around rather late and a direct hit sends him back. Bowden doesn't even have to call for the replay 252/9
JE Taylor not out 27 73 61 2 1 44.26
View dismissal DBL Powell c DPMD Jayawardene b Thushara 12 51 43 1 0 27.90
111.5 pitches outside off, Powell goes for the off drive but the ball clips the toe of his bat and travels low to Mahela Jayawardene at second slip. Powell isn't sure and he stands his ground, believing that to be a bump ball. The Sri Lankans are confident and the umpires confer. They eventually give him out. The replays aren't very conclusive. Perhaps another look will help. 280/10
