Dernbach to Gayle, FOUR, short of a length, whipped through midwicket with a powerful flick and it races past midwicket


Dernbach to Gayle, 2 leg byes, down the leg side, takes the pad which means it doesn't have much pace on it and Finn gets around the boundary


Dernbach to Gayle, FOUR, slower ball, dragged down short, sits up nicely for Gayle who waits a fraction longer and pulls it through square leg...he's off


Dernbach to Gayle, FOUR, what a shot, Dernbach responded with a very full ball on off stump, Gayle just stands there and punches it straight down the ground past mid-off

Finn to Gayle, no run, short of a length, at the body from Finn, Gayle defends it square into the off side to backward point


Finn to Gayle, FOUR, backs away to leg against another short ball and carves it over the off side...he knew what was coming and didn't make any attempt to keep the shot down

Broad to Gayle, FOUR, comes at the bowler, it's short of a length and skews off a thick outside edge over short third-man


Broad to Gayle, 1 run, a stand-deliver-drive to a full delivery on the stumps, mid-off can't field it cleanly and parries it away for a single. Maybe tactical from England?

Patel to Gayle, SIX, that's bigger...picked up from leg stump and a powerful slog-sweep which goes way back into the stands at deep square

Swann to Gayle, 1 run, length ball, spinning away, Gayle swipes and toe-ends a single down the ground


Swann to Gayle, OUT, BUT HE CATCHES THIS ONE! Gayle goes, slogging Swann high to the same part of the ground, Finn was the man under it again and he made amends for his drop one delivery earlier by clutching the ball to his chest at long-on and sending the Windies marauder on his way
