Finn to Charles, no run, full in middle, worked down to mid-on


Finn to Charles, 2 runs, tucked neatly through midwicket, just touched that with a turn of his wrists and it sped across the outfield


Finn to Charles, no run, angled into the pads, a strangled appeal from Finn and the slips but it's going well down the leg side


Finn to Charles, no run, first slog of the match as Charles steps to leg and aims to swing a good length ball through the leg side and doesn't make contact


Finn to Charles, no run, ooh, that's a good nut...short of a length and seams away from Charles as it climbs past the outside edge...Kieswetter takes at chest-height with the ball still rising


Finn to Charles, FOUR, first boundary and it comes off a top edge as Charles tries to work it through the leg side and is completely beaten by pace and bounce...flies over the slip to third man

West Indies 6/0   ST Finn 1-0-6-0

Finn to Charles, no run, back of a length, nips into the right hander and Charles punches to cover


Finn to Charles, no run, beaten! Another good one from Finn which moves away a fraction from Charles who is poking at it without much footwork


Finn to Charles, 1 leg bye, goes for the pull, doesn't get bat on it and takes the top of the pad down to third man


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


Finn to Gayle, 1 run, a rare shot he doesn' time as he splice this pull straight back past the bowler and it lobs towards mid-off...but it means he keeps the strike

West Indies 26/0   ST Finn 2-0-11-0

Finn to Gayle, no run, persisting back of a length and this beats Gayle's attempt at an upper-cut...Kieswetter has to leap to make the take


Finn to Gayle, 1 run, starts to give himself room to the leg side, Finn followed him and speared the ball in fall at the feet which is worked to midwicket...Finn kicked the stumps, but no dead-ball yet


Finn to Charles, no run, now Charles move to leg, less convincingly, and clubs towards mid-on without much timing


Finn to Charles, 2 runs, nice timing and placement as he opens the face and sends it square between point and cover


Finn to Charles, no run, misses another off-side shot, losing his shape as he tries to hit too hard and doesn't connect


Finn to Charles, no run, good finish to the cover from Finn, cramping Charles for room and he can only push it into the off side...two different games going on at the moment

West Indies 40/0   ST Finn 3-0-14-0

Finn to Pollard, OUT, and it works, Pollard unable to control a wild slash at Finn, the ball coming back down with snow on it as Wright takes the catch at deep point! Little foot movement from Pollard, he just stood in the crease and tried to smash a length ball, got a huge top edge and not enough distance to save him

KA Pollard c Wright b Finn 1 (9m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00


Finn to Charles, FOUR, length ball, on the stumps, steps back and skewers and low drive through backward point


Finn to Charles, FOUR, this time he goes the other side, shifting across the stumps to whip a length delivery through backward square leg, using the pace on the ball to get four more


Finn to Charles, 2 runs, pitched up, squeezed out through backward point again, it bounces in front of Bairstow on the boundary who jumps and pops it safely back into play before fielding


Finn to Charles, no run, full and wide and speared straight to point - dot ball


Finn to Charles, 2 runs, pitched up outside off, frees the arms and drives low through the covers to the man on the rope

West Indies 140/3   ST Finn 4-0-26-1
