7 October 2012 - night match (20-over match)

BAW Mendis to Bravo, no run, beaten, slipped it quicker outside off, shortish and it spat away to go past the outside edge as Bravo flirted with it

West Indies 14/2   DJ Bravo 0* (1b)

Mathews to Bravo, 1 leg bye, drops that one short on leg stump, caught on the glove as he fends it into the leg side


Mathews to Bravo, 1 run, slower one bowled on a length, pushes it towards deep cover for a single, Malinga covers that and prevents the second

West Indies 18/2   DJ Bravo 1* (3b)

BAW Mendis to Bravo, 1 run, floating it full on middle, Bravo gets across and drives it to deep midwicket for a single, a bit of air on that one

West Indies 19/2   DJ Bravo 2* (4b)

Mathews to Bravo, 1 wide, down the leg side, angling down leg as Bravo tries to work that fine, called a wide


Mathews to Bravo, 1 run, shortish outside off, cuts it wide of third man but good fielding from Dananjaya at third man, returned a good throw to keep them to a single

West Indies 25/2   DJ Bravo 3* (5b)

Dananjaya to Bravo, 1 run, struck on the pads, the offspinner, Bravo moved across to work it square, may have got an inside edge on the pads as it struck him in line, just the single


Dananjaya to Bravo, 1 run, waits for it to turn in, slightly short, turns it wide of square leg for one more

West Indies 32/2   DJ Bravo 5* (7b)

BMAJ Mendis to Bravo, 1 run, slapped down towards long off from a full length


BMAJ Mendis to Bravo, no run, blocked away into the point region on the back foot


BMAJ Mendis to Bravo, 2 runs, goes back and gets in a tangle, lucky to inside edge it into midwicket


BMAJ Mendis to Bravo, no run, driven hard but straight to extra cover

West Indies 38/2   DJ Bravo 8* (11b)

Dananjaya to Bravo, SIX, finally a big shot, swung away from a full length on the stumps, gets it over midwicket, was a googly but Bravo took it full enough and timed it perfectly


Dananjaya to Bravo, no run, offspinner blocked forward around the off stump


Dananjaya to Bravo, 1 run, back foot push through the covers again, just a single

West Indies 46/2   DJ Bravo 15* (14b 1x6)

Malinga to Bravo, 1 run, excellent yorker, right in the hole, dug out through square leg, really well bowled


Malinga to Bravo, 1 run, gets it right in the hole again, dug out down to long on

West Indies 63/2   DJ Bravo 17* (16b 1x6)

BAW Mendis to Bravo, 1 run, tapped to short third man, fumble from the young lad gives away a single


BAW Mendis to Bravo, 1 run, slap down to long off staying on the back foot


BAW Mendis to Bravo, OUT, forward around off stump, big cry for leg before, was it pad first? Yes says the umpire and Bravo has to go. He was caught around the knee roll playing forward around off stump, I had doubt of whether he was in line and especially whether there was bat involved but umpire Taufel thought both favoured the bowler and that it wasn't too high either, another big blow

DJ Bravo lbw b BAW Mendis 19 (29m 19b 0x4 1x6) SR: 100.00

West Indies 73/3   DJ Bravo 19 (19b 1x6)
