14.1

Swann to Gayle, no run, tossed up outside off and played back

14.2

Swann to Gayle, no run, flighted and blocked back to Swann

14.3

Swann to Gayle, no run, flatter ball on off and defended on the front foot

14.4

Swann to Gayle, OUT, flat delivery, not much turn and there's a big lbw appeal ... it's given but Gayle immediately reviews it. Swann was pleading, imploring for that decision and Tony Hill gave it after an age. There's definitely bat involved but was it pad first? There's no doubt the ball was going on to hit. It's practically impossible to tell if the ball squeezed on to the pad via the bat or the other way around. Perversely, the crowd probably don't want him to go ... but he has to, as the decision is upheld!
