7 October 2012 - night match (20-over match)
4.1

Malinga to Gayle, 1 run, starts with a slower one does Malinga, 124.4, slower than his usual ones anyway, turned past square leg for a single

4.2

Malinga to Samuels, 1 run, shortish on the off, drops it down to pick a single again

4.3

Malinga to Gayle, no run, was surprised by that extra bounce again, seemed to me to be the offcutter, 124.5kmph, cut away to go past the outside edge as Gayle dropped his hands on that one

4.4

Malinga to Gayle, 1 run, takes his bottom hand off that one as well and guides that one towards third man for a single, Malinga bowling cutters

4.5

Malinga to Samuels, 1 run, another offcutter, Samuels runs that one down to third man for a single

4.6

Malinga to Gayle, no run, drops that short outside off, a bit quicker than the rest but not by much, Gayle leaves that one alone

West Indies 12/1   SL Malinga 1-0-4-0
12.1

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

12.2

Malinga to Samuels, SIX, full length on the leg stump, doesn't quite get this in the hole and Samuels steps outside leg stump and whacks it into the stands over midwicket

12.3

Malinga to Samuels, SIX, six more, this time over extra cover, if Malinga doesn't get it spot it he can disappear, and again it was a half-volley, the front leg was cleared and a clean-as-a-whistle strike ensued

12.4

Malinga to Samuels, 1 run, length this time and guided down to third man

12.5

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

12.6

Malinga to Samuels, SIX, clear the front leg and once again, when Malinga misses his length he goes far and this is smashes over long on

West Indies 69/2   SL Malinga 2-0-25-0
16.1

Malinga to Samuels, 1 run, fine off-stump yorker, dug out down the ground

16.2

Malinga to Sammy, 1 run, step across the stumps and tucked a length ball to short long leg

16.3

Malinga to Samuels, FOUR, again, Malinga just missed the length, wide of off stump too, Samuels reaches across and carves it wide of third man for four, rocketed to the rope

16.4

Malinga to Samuels, SIX, short now, swung at again, comes off the toe of the back, he was a little late on the hook but sails over the rope

16.5

Malinga to Samuels, SIX, oh my days this has travelled a ridiculously long distance, full ball on the stumps and, well, it has gone 108 metres, what a strike

16.6

Malinga to Samuels, 1 run, and now he fancies the strike, going across the stumps to take a single to third man

West Indies 108/5   SL Malinga 3-0-44-0
18.1

Malinga to Ramdin, 1 run, good full ball, Samuels would have hit that for six but Ramdin got in a fuss outside it and could only drive it through the covers

18.2

Malinga to Sammy, FOUR, another great yorker, dug out and it flies to long leg for four, very lucky but more runs off Malinga

18.3

Malinga to Sammy, 1 run, full ball again, swung to leg, gets it off the edge to short long leg

18.4

Malinga to Ramdin, 1 run, a lean outside off and edge down to third man

18.5

Malinga to Sammy, 2 runs, swung into the off side, totally mistimed, but it lands short of deep cover, lucky again for Sammy

18.6

Malinga to Sammy, 1 run, super yorker, batsman did very well to dig that out, they take a single

West Indies 122/6   SL Malinga 4-0-54-0
