23.1

Stirling to Chanderpaul, no run, tossed up on middle, driven straight to midwicket

23.2

23.3

Stirling to Chanderpaul, 1 run, fullish on middle, driven down the ground to long-on for a single

23.4

Stirling to Smith, FOUR, streaky way to get to a half-century, comes down the track to deposit that over long-on, trying to force the issue, was fortunate to get an inside edge past the short-fine fielder for a boundary, a laborious half-century to ODI standards

23.5

Stirling to Smith, 2 runs, swings it over midwicket this time but didn't time it well, long-on runs across and cuts it off

23.6

Stirling to Smith, no run, short ball outside off, chopped down towards point

West Indies 87/0   PR Stirling 2-0-9-0
