10.2

Sammy to Sehwag, FOUR, a slightly slower delivery nearly does the job for Sammy, 119kph, the bat turns in Sehwag's hand as he looks to hammer a full ball over mid-on, he gets enough power on it to clear Bishoo at mid-on and picks up a boundary, Sammy suggests this is a cruel world

10.3

Sammy to Sehwag, FOUR, this was short and wide, Sehwag doesn't bother with putting any power on the shot as he guides it behind point for four, Sammy can't complain about that one

12.1

Sammy to Sehwag, OUT, the drinks break works a charm for West Indies, Sehwag is gone first ball after that, it wasn't a great delivery or anything, a length ball that Sehwag wanted to murder, he can only club it as far as a straight-ish short midwicket, West Indies are ecstatic, and why not. The bat turned in Sehwag's hands as he played that shot
