Played at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium (neutral venue)
1 October 2012 - day/night match (20-over match)

Mills to Charles, FOUR, edged and wide of Taylor at slip, Taylor's already standing a little wide, Charles chases that one in the channel, it moves away a bit, takes the outside edge and it's a boundary to third man

West Indies 5/0   J Charles 4* (4b 1x4)   KD Mills 0.3-0-5-0

Mills to Charles, FOUR, short and it's there to cut, Charles cuts that hard and gets it wide of point, and also beats Oram at third man, four more

West Indies 9/0   J Charles 8* (6b 2x4)   KD Mills 0.5-0-9-0

Bracewell to Gayle, FOUR, straying on the pads and Gayle's gentle again, but picks the gap nicely, clipped all along the group through square leg, this with a fine leg up, four more

West Indies 13/0   CH Gayle 4* (2b 1x4)   DAJ Bracewell 0.2-0-4-0

Mills to Gayle, FOUR, mid-off is up, slower one again from Mills but poor length ultimately, lands in the slot outside off and Gayle just drives that uppishly, through the line, for a one bounce four

West Indies 26/1   CH Gayle 17* (8b 2x4 1x6)   KD Mills 1.5-0-21-0

Mills to Gayle, FOUR, lovely timing, just a punch this time, Mills drags it back but Gayle sweetly punches that through cover and cover point, for a boundary

West Indies 30/1   CH Gayle 21* (9b 3x4 1x6)   KD Mills 2-0-25-0

NL McCullum to Samuels, FOUR, Samuels goes big this time, swung hard over square leg and it beats the man in the deep, a welcome boundary for West Indies

West Indies 72/3   MN Samuels 19* (18b 1x4 1x6)   NL McCullum 0.5-0-7-0

NL McCullum to Samuels, FOUR, this one's a slightly freakish boundary, Samuels goes over the top on the off side but didn't time that well at all, but got it into the gap between long-off and deep extra

West Indies 76/3   MN Samuels 23* (19b 2x4 1x6)   NL McCullum 1-0-11-0

Hira to Pollard, FOUR, smashed hard past the bowler, Hira had very little reaction time, pitched up and it was drilled back hard just over the bowler's head for a boundary

West Indies 96/4   KA Pollard 7* (4b 1x4)   RM Hira 2.5-0-19-0

Bracewell to Sammy, FOUR, cut away hard, Hira dives to his left full length at point but it's well away from him, short and wide and Sammy doesn't waste it

West Indies 112/6   DJG Sammy 7* (8b 1x4)   DAJ Bracewell 2.2-0-16-2

Bracewell to Pollard, FOUR, Bracewell's unlucky, tried to clear that over extra cover but ended up getting a thick outside edge, lands just short of the deep point boundary

West Indies 127/7   KA Pollard 23* (19b 2x4)   DAJ Bracewell 3.1-0-24-2

Bracewell to Pollard, FOUR, just as well for West Indies that Narine got off strike, driven hard down the ground, that was length again and Guptill tried hard to dive to his left to stop that but his back was touching the ropes as he dragged it in

West Indies 133/7   KA Pollard 28* (21b 3x4)   DAJ Bracewell 3.4-0-30-2
