1.2

1.3

Kulasekara to Charles, 1 run, another heave across the line but the ball gets the inside edge and rolls to the leg side

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

West Indies 4/0   KMDN Kulasekara 1-0-1-0

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

3.2

Kulasekara to Gayle, 1 run, slower ball and an ungainly swipe across the line wide of square leg, mistimed that one

3.3

Kulasekara to Charles, no run, Kula's testing them both with the slower ball, Charles made a lot of room to bash that over his head and he missed it completely

3.4

Kulasekara to Charles, no run, boundary ball and he failed to cash in, full toss on the pads and he only managed to play it onto his pads

3.5

Kulasekara to Charles, 1 run, risky run! Charles made room and slapped it towards extra cover, had Mathews been quicker on the throw Gayle would have been in big trouble, just missed the stumps

3.6

Kulasekara to Gayle, no run, fuller on the off stump and forcefully played straight to mid-off, slow start by Windies

West Indies 14/0   KMDN Kulasekara 2-0-3-0

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

5.2

Kulasekara to Bravo, FOUR, what a good way to get off the mark, fuller delivery coming back in and Bravo just showed the full face of the bat and punched it wide of mid-on

5.3

Kulasekara to Bravo, no run, gets across and punches it towards the covers

5.4

Kulasekara to Bravo, no run, gets across and pushes it firmly towards cover again

5.5

Kulasekara to Bravo, no run, this time he's beaten outside the off stump, poked his bat out and kept a bit low as well

5.6

Kulasekara to Bravo, no run, gets across his stumps and pushes a full delivery down to midwicket

West Indies 20/2   KMDN Kulasekara 3-0-7-1

17.1

Kulasekara to Russell, SIX, goes high and long, chips down the track and he whams a straight six over the bowler's head

17.2

Kulasekara to Russell, 1 run, low full toss and he drills it down to long-on

17.3

Kulasekara to Samuels, SIX, almost all the way to the second tier! Pitched up and he makes room, gets under the bounce and muscles it high over the bowler's head, one of the longer sixes we've seen, 102m, the biggest so far

17.4

Kulasekara to Samuels, no run, yorker outside off and he makes room and fails to make contact

17.5

Kulasekara to Samuels, FOUR, Kula getting caned here, full and wide and Samuels makes room and crashes that wide of extra cover

17.6

Kulasekara to Samuels, FOUR, make that 21 off the over! Samuels makes room to a fuller delivery and bashes that down the ground along the turf, nobody was around to stop that

West Indies 119/4   KMDN Kulasekara 4-0-28-1
