View dismissal J Charles lbw b Watson 24 16 4 0 150.00
6.2 80.1 mph, pitched up, misses with a swipe across the line ... gone! Watson didn't do anything spectacular with that delivery but it was on target and that's sometimes all you need. Charles goes lbw after a colourful cameo 38/2
View dismissal DR Smith c †Wade b Lee 10 10 2 0 100.00
2.3 86.8 mph, slightly short again and this time Smith perishes! Lee slung a fast delivery well outside off, the batsman tried to cut but got just a sliver of bat on it, Matt Wade taking a comfortable catch 19/1
View dismissal NE Bonner b Christian 24 33 2 0 72.72
12.1 79.4 mph, bowled him, top of middle! Another wicket for Christian and the wheels are falling off for West Indies! Bonner's somewhat ponderous innings ends with a skip down the wicket, missing with his attempted swipe and seeing his bails go pop 72/4
View dismissal DM Bravo c Pattinson b Christian 12 14 2 0 85.71
10.5 75.2 mph, toe ends a pull shot and Bravo is gone! The ball wasn't quite short enough, Bravo got under it and the catch looped fairly gently out towards deep midwicket, where the fielder had to run a long way in to claim it 66/3
KA Pollard not out 54 26 2 5 207.69
View dismissal DJ Bravo c DJ Hussey b Christian 14 11 1 0 127.27
16.6 83.4 mph, lofted drive and taken at long-off. Bravo doesn't have quite the same muscle as Pollard and he got under a punched shot off a length ball, unable to clear the man in the deep 134/5
View dismissal DJG Sammy* c DJ Hussey b Lee 7 8 1 0 87.50
18.5 84.1 mph, holes out to long-off! Pitched up by Lee, again well outside off, Sammy wasn nowhere near the pitch and his heave down the ground came off the bottom of the bat 144/6
View dismissal CS Baugh run out (Watson/Christian) 1 1 0 0 100.00
19.4 Watson to Pollard, digs a shot out towards deep midwicket, they try for two but Pollard slips on the way back down ... Baugh makes sure they cross to sacrifice himself 148/7
GE Mathurin not out 1 1 0 0 100.00

View dismissal DA Warner b Santokie 0 5 0 0 0.00
0.5 74.5 mph, got him, bowled through the gate! Santokie shuffled in, sent the ball down on middle, right up in the blockhole, Warner played across the line and the stumps are pegged back. Australia's danger man up top is gone! 0/1
View dismissal SR Watson c Pollard b Mathurin 69 43 5 6 160.46
12.4 shorter this time and Watson gets under it, looping the ball high out to deep midwicket again but this time it's not got the legs and Kieron Pollard pouches. West Indies get the breakthrough they need - but is it too late? 108/2
