View dismissal H Masakadza lbw b Miller 41 59 45 6 0 91.11
18.4 Given out lbw but it perhaps was missing the off stump. It was flighted on the off and middle line, Masakadza went for his sweep shot but missed. The ball hit the back pad around the line of off stump and it appeared as if it was turning away from the stumps. The umpire must have given it out as it struck the back-foot 67/1
View dismissal V Sibanda b Roach 95 170 162 5 1 58.64
48.3 Smoking guns! Roach literally and otherwise breaks through the defences of the batsman. The bat is broken in two, the off bail has fallen off and Sibanda has to go. A bizarre end to an innings that was for most part, bizarre. 241/5
View dismissal T Taibu lbw b Pollard 56 65 54 5 0 103.70
37.1 trapped in front. Taibu's fine innings, full of improvisations, has ended. It landed on a length just outside off and moved in with the angle. Taibu was on the front foot, looking to just tap it to the on side but some how missed to make contact and was hit on the back pad. Bit of a tame dismissal. Fine innings, though. 167/2
View dismissal BRM Taylor run out (Pollard) 1 3 2 0 0 50.00
37.5 Pollard to Sibanda, Super cool left footer from Pollard and Taylor is run out . full delivery just outside off, Sibanda stays back for some reason and just about manages to jab it to the off side, not all that far away from the stumps. Pollard rushes forward to kick it with his left foot and finds the stumps! 168/3
View dismissal E Chigumbura c Fletcher b Pollard 27 22 22 1 1 122.72
45.4 hit high towards long on, Chigumbara could not get enough bat on that and hence did not get enough distance. Good innings and a crucial breakthrough 215/4

View dismissal CH Gayle* lbw b Lamb 57 75 66 2 3 86.36
22.6 Trapped in front! Huge wicket this. It drifted in from round the stumps, lands on the middle stump line, and straightens to hit him in front of middle. That's out. Gayle had pressed his front leg across, perhaps tad too across, and had to play around the front pad. Too late. Gone! What a strike by Lamby! 99/1
View dismissal AB Barath b Chigumbura 50 95 96 4 1 52.08
29.3 And that's out! Bowling change works, pace change works. Short again, but not so wide and Barath again looks for an expansive cut, but only manages to get an inside edge. The stumps are rattled and Barath is gone. 126/2
View dismissal S Chanderpaul c Chigumbura b SW Masakadza 70 109 70 4 1 100.00
47.5 BIG wicket! Chanderpaul is gone and this game is far from over. Picks the length ball and times it beautifully, probably too beautifully, it carries to Chigumbura at long off, who is standing a few paces in, but holds his nerve and more importantly, holds the catch. 233/6
View dismissal ADS Fletcher run out (Cremer/†Taibu) 6 10 12 0 0 50.00
32.4 from Lamb, Well well, what do we have here! Fletcher is gone. Short again and drifting down. He runs it down to short fine leg and turns back for two, but Cremer barreled in a superb throw. Taibu fails to collect, but that was a guided missile heading for the stumps all the same. Deflects off his gloves on to the stumps and Fletcher is well short. The third umpire spent a long time deciding, but it was clear from the first replay. Cremer's the man! 136/3
View dismissal N Deonarine run out (†Taibu/Utseya) 17 16 17 1 0 100.00
37.6 Cremer to Chanderpaul, Deonarine is run out There was an lbw shout and then a run out. Drama. Action. It was the skidder that went on straight on the leg and middle line, Chanderpaul tries to turn it to the leg side and misses. Close shout for lbw turned down by the umpire. Deonarine tries to get across for a single. Mistake. Chanders is not interested and both end up in the striker's end. Taibu rushes to his left, dives to make the stop and throws it back at the non-striker's end. Gone! 165/4
View dismissal KA Pollard c Taylor b Utseya 5 22 14 0 0 35.71
42.4 Pollard falls. Zimbabwe captain breaks through. It was a loopy flighted delivery on the middle stump line, Pollard doesn't quite get forward, just on drives, sort of chips it uppishly, and straight to mid-on. Chanderpaul is still out there. West Indies five down. Pressure. Game on. 193/5
View dismissal D Ramdin b Chigumbura 8 30 16 0 0 50.00
48.4 He's a goner! Superb bowling here, keeps it straight and simple. Ramdin goes for an almighty heave through the covers and makes contact with thin air. Timber is struck and he'll have to go back. 235/7
View dismissal DR Smith b SW Masakadza 4 11 5 1 0 80.00
49.4 and he botches it up! Great ball under pressure from the debutant, but in the circumstances a really ordinary shot from Smith, who looks to hit the straight ball across the line. He misses and the stumps are rearranged. Benn walks out to the middle. 4 off 2! 251/8
NO Miller not out 12 11 4 1 1 300.00
View dismissal SJ Benn c Cremer b SW Masakadza 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
49.5 Big Benn falls! Cremer holds on to a steepler and West Indies are succumbing to pressure! Benn goes for an almighty hoick over midwicket and hits it really high. Cremer runs in a long way from the deep midwicket fence and takes it millimetres off the ground. Super catch! 4 off 1, and the batsmen did not cross over, would you believe it! 251/9
