Finn to Simmons, FOUR, pitched up outside off and Simmons steps forward to ping a stonking cover drive through the infield and away for four - shot!

West Indies 5/0   LMP Simmons 4* (8b 1x4)   ST Finn 0.3-0-5-0

Finn to Gayle, FOUR, slides on to the pads and this time Gayle connects, showing his power with a chunky glance in front of square leg

West Indies 12/0   CH Gayle 6* (12b 1x4)   ST Finn 2.2-1-10-0

Finn to Gayle, FOUR, four more! Though this wasn't an authentic stroke, the ball slicing high off the toe of the bat and over third slip as the ball left Gayle off a good length

West Indies 16/0   CH Gayle 10* (13b 2x4)   ST Finn 2.3-1-14-0

Finn to Gayle, FOUR, more punishment for Finn, picking up a straight, length ball and belabouring it back down the ground for a boundary at long-on

West Indies 20/0   CH Gayle 14* (14b 3x4)   ST Finn 2.4-1-18-0

Broad to Samuels, FOUR, wide of the stumps and punched lazily square for an exquisitely timed boundary through point - hold the pose Marlon

West Indies 69/2   MN Samuels 6* (4b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 1-0-6-1

Finn to Samuels, FOUR, full length and Samuels seizes on it, timing an effortless drive wide of mid-off - he's almost level with Lendl already

West Indies 76/2   MN Samuels 11* (14b 2x4)   ST Finn 4.2-1-23-0

Anderson to Pollard, FOUR, couple of steps down and heaved off an inside edge over midwicket and this races away for four, fortune favours the brave

West Indies 93/4   KA Pollard 9* (19b 1x4)   JM Anderson 7.3-2-26-0

Swann to Bravo, FOUR, taken from outside off and chipped over midwicket and it races down for four, a lovely little shot, placed to perfection between long on and deep midwicket

West Indies 99/4   DJ Bravo 9* (24b 1x4)   GP Swann 3.4-1-9-1

Swann to Pollard, FOUR, down to paddle sweep and gets it very fine for four, good stroke

West Indies 147/4   DJ Bravo 35* (46b 3x4 1x6)   ST Finn 7.5-1-41-0

Broad to Pollard, FOUR, fine stroke, using the pace of the ball to run it to third man for four from short of a length

West Indies 155/4   KA Pollard 35* (45b 3x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 5.3-0-19-2

Bresnan to Bravo, FOUR, wide and lashed to third man where no-one is home, poor ball, nicely placed

Bresnan to Bravo, FOUR, slower ball and short, Bravo gets it past the 45

West Indies 178/4   DJ Bravo 52* (61b 6x4 1x6)   TT Bresnan 8.3-1-50-0

Broad to Bravo, FOUR, short ball, pulled fine, just helped down to fine leg, it's almost a mis-hit but it works

West Indies 187/5   DJ Bravo 59* (67b 7x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 7.3-0-34-2

Broad to Bravo, FOUR, full and chipped wide of long on for four, picked up deliciously

West Indies 211/5   DJG Sammy 14* (15b 1x4)   GP Swann 9.2-1-41-1

Anderson to Best, FOUR, perhaps a slip eh? This goes right where first slip would have been off a genuine outside edge for four to third man

West Indies 227/7   TL Best 4* (1b 1x4)   JM Anderson 8.4-2-34-1
