1.4

Kulasekara to Gayle, no run, nice tight line to Gayle, on the middle stump from over the wicket and quietly defended

1.5

Kulasekara to Gayle, no run, turns the bat slightly and he clips it towards midwicket

1.6

Kulasekara to Gayle, no run, end of a very good over, fuller and Gayle turned the bat to work it wide of mid-on, straight to Malinga and no point risking a run

West Indies 4/0   CH Gayle 1* (4b)

3.1

Kulasekara to Gayle, no run, tests out Gayle with a yorker length ball, he did well to jam it out in front of the off stump

5.1

Kulasekara to Gayle, OUT, Kula's got the Big Fish! Look at the bowler celebrate, slower ball - leg cutter - and really wide of the off stump, Gayle couldn't resist chasing that after being subdued for so long, thick outside edge and it loops towards Sangakkara who dives and takes the catch

CH Gayle c †Sangakkara b Kulasekara 2 (26m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.22

West Indies 16/2   CH Gayle 2 (9b)
