4.1

BAW Mendis to Charles, no run, spun away and really foxed him! Close to the edge and the stumps

4.2

BAW Mendis to Charles, 1 leg bye, Charles moves across and gets on his knee to sweep, clips the pad and there's an appeal but the umpire reckoned it wasn't hitting

4.3

BAW Mendis to Gayle, 1 leg bye, negotiates that by padding it to the leg side

4.4

BAW Mendis to Charles, no run, Charles goes back and across and slashes and misses, sharp turn

4.5

BAW Mendis to Charles, OUT, reward for some excellent bowling by Mendis, Charles doesn't see any point in using the crease against Mendis so he decides to give him the charge, fails to read the googly and he's a long way out, easy stumping

11.3

BAW Mendis to Samuels, 1 leg bye, comes down the track and pads it away without offering a shot, they take a leg bye

BAW Mendis to Pollard, no run, cannot take a run off this one, Mendis testing Pollard
