0.3

Bresnan to Smith, no run, beaten! That's a beauty, back of a length and it seams away past the outside edge

0.4

Bresnan to Smith, no run, first wild heave of the evening, tries to take this from outside off and doesn't make contact

0.5

Bresnan to Smith, 2 runs, worked off middle stump through midwicket and it's placed well enough for a second

0.6

Bresnan to Smith, 1 run, this one comes off the splice as he pulls towards midwicket and it barely clears the fielding circle

West Indies 4/0   DR Smith 3* (4b)
1.1

Finn to Smith, no run, starts very full and is firmly driven to cover

1.2

Finn to Smith, no run, well bowled, seams away and beats the outside edge as Smith plays without any footwork

1.3

Finn to Smith, 1 run, already touching 90mph, at the stumps and tucked through midwicket

West Indies 5/0   DR Smith 4* (7b)
2.1

Bresnan to Smith, FOUR, drifts onto leg stump and it's flicked away to the vacant long leg for the first boundary. The outfield is very swift

2.2

Bresnan to Smith, 1 wide, that goes wrong for Bresnan, he tried a bouncer and it flew miles down the leg side. Was a good take by Kieswetter

2.2

Bresnan to Smith, SIX, all the way! He's connected with this one. Was dropped short by Bresnan and Smith stayed on the back foot to launch it over midwicket

2.3

Bresnan to Smith, FOUR, responds by going fuller, but Smith responds with a strong square drive that beats the inner ring and races over the net pitches

2.4

Bresnan to Smith, no run, gets back to off stump, defended firmly towards mid-off

2.5

Bresnan to Smith, SIX, and another! He's cleared the ropes with a brilliant short-arm pull, was a short again from Bresnan and Smith manages to clear Stokes a deep square-leg

2.6

Bresnan to Smith, 1 run, slower ball to end the over, dropped square on the off side...22 off the over

West Indies 27/0   DR Smith 25* (13b 2x4 2x6)
3.1

Finn to Smith, 1 run, full, above 90mph again, driven firmly to the left of mid-off

West Indies 28/0   DR Smith 26* (14b 2x4 2x6)
4.1

Dernbach to Smith, no run, starts full on off stump, defended into the covers

4.2

Dernbach to Smith, no run, dropped, Dernbach spills one in his follow through as a slower ball comes off the leading edge but the bowler can't take it to his left...wasn't the toughest chance

4.3

Dernbach to Smith, 1 run, pushed firmly towards mid-on but the fielder is deep enough to allow a single

West Indies 43/0   DR Smith 27* (17b 2x4 2x6)
5.3

Patel to Smith, 2 runs, flicked along the ground again, it should only have been one by Finn palms the ball away as he dives in the field

5.4

Patel to Smith, FOUR, this one spins, squares up the batsman and takes the outside which races away down to third man

5.5

Patel to Smith, no run, appeal for lbw, beaten by one that doesn't spin but it's nowhere near

5.6

Patel to Smith, OUT, gone! What a ripper, and there's the breakthrough. This turns from middle stump, beats the edge and takes off. Perfect for a left-armer.

DR Smith b Patel 33 (21m 21b 3x4 2x6) SR: 157.14

West Indies 51/1   DR Smith 33 (21b 3x4 2x6)
