1.4

Anderson to Gayle, OUT, bowled him! Pitched it up, Anderson, and Gayle stepped outside leg to crack him square of the wicket and inside-edged that into his stumps

CH Gayle b Anderson 5 (6m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

West Indies 13/1   DS Smith 8* (2b 2x4)   JM Anderson 0.4-0-4-1

10.1

Mascarenhas to Chanderpaul, OUT, a maiden international wicket for Mascarenhas, and it's Mr Immoveable himself! Chanderpaul went for the big swing into the leg-side, the shot was on as the ball was short, but Cook dived forward superbly and belied his reputation for ropey fielding with a fine take. Another fine innings comes to an end

S Chanderpaul c Cook b Mascarenhas 41 (34m 26b 6x4 0x6) SR: 157.69

West Indies 97/2   DS Smith 48* (27b 6x4 2x6)   AD Mascarenhas 1.1-0-7-1

12.1

Mascarenhas to DS Smith, OUT, ohh it's up in the air, Smith trying to smack this over long-on but he's mistimed it and Yardy's running to his left from long-on...he dives forward and takes an excellent catch

DS Smith c Yardy b Mascarenhas 61 (49m 34b 7x4 3x6) SR: 179.41

West Indies 115/3   MN Samuels 4* (5b)   AD Mascarenhas 2.1-0-17-2

13.3

Yardy to Bravo, 1 wide, OUT, got him this time! Fired down the leg side again by Yardy, Bravo tries to flick him over the top but is beaten by a touch of spin. Prior skips to his right and stumps him slickly and easily

DJ Bravo st †Prior b Yardy 1 (4m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

West Indies 131/4   MN Samuels 13* (10b 1x6)   MH Yardy 3.2-0-27-1

17.3

Broad to Ramdin, OUT, ah but he tries it again and well bowled Broad. Again short, again wide and Ramdin falls for the trap, uppercutting it...but straight down to Mascarenhas at third man who shuffled to his right to swallow a simple catch

D Ramdin c Mascarenhas b Broad 24 (1m 13b 2x4 1x6) SR: 184.61

West Indies 190/5   MN Samuels 44* (23b 3x4 3x6)   SCJ Broad 2.3-0-24-1

18.2

Sidebottom to Samuels, OUT, a touch of swing into Samuels' pads cracks this aerially down to long-on, but he's timed it too well and Mascarenhas jogs to his left, taking a very fine running catch - juggling it as he does so

MN Samuels c Mascarenhas b Sidebottom 51 (14m 26b 3x4 4x6) SR: 196.15

West Indies 199/6   DR Smith 2* (2b)   RJ Sidebottom 3.2-0-38-1

18.6

Sidebottom to Morton, OUT, he's absolutely hammered this but straight into the non-striker's stumps. The ball ricochets a metre or so from Sidebottom who walks over and lifts out the stumps, one by one. How unlucky can you get?

DR Smith run out 6 (3m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

West Indies 204/7   RS Morton 0* (1b)   RJ Sidebottom 4-0-42-1

19.3

Anderson to Sammy, OUT, goddim! Swinging into Sammy who tries to hit this into France, but completely misses it and loses his off stump

DJG Sammy b Anderson 1 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

West Indies 206/8   RS Morton 1* (2b)   JM Anderson 3.3-0-36-2
