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

West Indies 9/0   DR Smith 8* (8b 1x4)   TT Bresnan 1.1-0-8-0

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

West Indies 20/0   DR Smith 18* (10b 2x4 1x6)   TT Bresnan 1.3-0-19-0

3.3

Finn to Charles, FOUR, well, this is T20...he backs away to leg and gives himself room, Finn tries to follow him but Charles clubs it straight down the ground

West Indies 32/0   J Charles 5* (7b 1x4)   ST Finn 1.3-0-6-0

3.5

Finn to Charles, FOUR, that's his best shot, splays his left leg out the way they drives through the line to beat mid-off...top stuff from West Indies

West Indies 38/0   J Charles 11* (9b 2x4)   ST Finn 1.5-0-12-0

3.6

Finn to Charles, FOUR, finishes the over with another boundary as he lifts this wide of mid-on...West Indies flying away.

West Indies 42/0   J Charles 15* (10b 3x4)   ST Finn 2-0-16-0

5.4

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

West Indies 51/0   DR Smith 33* (19b 3x4 2x6)   SR Patel 0.4-0-7-0

12.6

Swann to Hyatt, FOUR, another boundary, this time off the edge! Swann speared this one down much faster outside off, and the ball took a healthy edge before rolling down to the third man boundary

West Indies 89/2   DP Hyatt 22* (15b 1x4 2x6)   GP Swann 4-0-30-1

16.4

Dernbach to Russell, FOUR, edged, and four! Dernbach pitched it up and Russell through everything into the drive. The ball flew past Kieswetter, who had no chance, and down to third man

West Indies 111/5   AD Russell 6* (4b 1x4)   JW Dernbach 2.4-0-13-0

18.4

Dernbach to Edwards, FOUR, Dernbach aims for the yorker but it slips out as a low full toss outside off, and Edwards gets going with a powerful drive to the wide long off boundary

West Indies 121/9   FH Edwards 4* (1b 1x4)   JW Dernbach 3.4-0-18-1
