View dismissal SR Watson lbw b Bravo 31 59 27 4 0 114.81
12.5 a huge shout as Watson walks right across his stumps - something he's been favouring this innings - and the ball comes in , pitching just outside off and rapping him in line with leg, Watson too late on the would-be flick off the legs 75/1

7.5 And there goes Gayle. Bracken angles it in, Gayle walks across and tries to work to leg, it strikes him in line, and after a Bucknor-like interminably long wait Asad Rauf raises the finger 29/2
View dismissal RR Sarwan c Hussey b Lee 2 25 11 0 0 18.18
8.1 and that's three down! Lee was really troubling Sarwan, this one's quick and a bit of extra bounce does for Sarwan, who pushes and edges to slip where Hussey grabs the chance above his head 29/3
View dismissal ADS Fletcher run out (†Haddin) 26 70 43 2 0 60.46
22.5 from White, pitches just on leg and Fletcher defends down, sets off, then is casual as you like in trying to get back in and Haddin knocks the stumps at the base and replays show he was well out 92/5
View dismissal DJ Bravo lbw b Clarke 33 51 37 4 0 89.18
19.1 and he strikes immediately! Bravo takes a long stride forward, misses the ball, and he's caught in front.

27.1 and he strikes! Johnson pushes it across him, Pollard edges off the back foot fending away from his body and Haddin snaps up the chance 111/6
View dismissal D Ramdin b Watson 31 55 38 1 0 81.57
35.4 cleans him up now, comprehensively. The ball's a peach, nipping right back in from outside off and the batsman drove right at it, going through the gate 163/7
View dismissal DJG Sammy b Bracken 33 59 35 2 0 94.28
39.1 bowled him - although he needed confirmation from the umpire as to whether it came off Haddin's pads or the stumps, both as it happened - Sammy swishing at the air 186/9
View dismissal JE Taylor c †Haddin b Bracken 11 11 10 0 1 110.00
37.5 slower ball, and the batsman's all mixed up there, looking to play it out to the leg side but his leading edge pops up towards gully, Haddin calls it and carries on over to collect with two hands 178/8
View dismissal SJ Benn c Clarke b Bracken 7 9 6 1 0 116.66
39.5 and that's it! It's all over, Clarke runs round from long on to take the catch as the batsman attempted to drive right over for the six 189/10
