38.2

Imran Tahir to Thomas, no run, defended towards the off side off the front foot

38.3

Imran Tahir to Thomas, no run, Thomas has no clue about the Tahir googly, completely foxed by that one, the ball turned in and cramped him as he was looking for an expansive shot, Thomas barely manages to survive

41.6

Botha to Thomas, FOUR, Thomas gets on the back foot and seemed to be off balance when he played a late cut, but he has played it well enough to pick up a boundary past third man

West Indies 205/5   DC Thomas 11* (14b 1x4)
42.3

Imran Tahir to Thomas, 2 runs, punched to long-on this time for a couple

42.4

Imran Tahir to Thomas, no run, another googly, and Thomas has no idea about that one either, misses the bat by a long way and is struck on the pads, Tahir launches a loud appeal, that was sliding down

42.5

Imran Tahir to Thomas, no run, crunched towards short cover, sharp fielding there prevents a run

42.6

Imran Tahir to Thomas, 1 run, another authoritative hit from Thomas, along the ground to deep square leg, placement isn't great

West Indies 212/6   DC Thomas 14* (18b 1x4)

44.5

Imran Tahir to Thomas, no run, five dot balls, taps it to the on side, superb over from Tahir so far

44.6

Imran Tahir to Thomas, OUT, and a superb over gets even better, Thomas losses his head and his wicket, looks to scythe a length ball over the off side, Duminy runs back from extra cover to pouch the catch that gives Tahir his fourth wicket, a debut to remember for Tahir, and some really poor cricket from West Indies

DC Thomas c Duminy b Imran Tahir 15 (29m 26b 1x4 0x6) SR: 57.69

West Indies 213/8   DC Thomas 15 (26b 1x4)
