9.1

Bresnan to Gayle, no run, on the stumps and prodded back down the pitch

9.2

Bresnan to Gayle, SIX, overpitched on the stumps and this one is dispatched back down the ground for another Dorothy, Gayle so still at the crease as he watches it sail away

9.4

Bresnan to Gayle, no run, line and length, plays this one more watchfully

9.5

Bresnan to Gayle, no run, Gayle has taken a liking to Bresnan's pace (or lack thereof), it seems, attacking him again but slapping his drive to a fielder

9.6

Bresnan to Gayle, SIX, monstrous, monstrous hitting from Christopher Henry Gayle! Bresnan was a touch short and Gayle stepped away and mullered him on to the roof of the stand above the players' dressing rooms - tidal wave, tsunami, here it comes!
