View dismissal SR Watson c Sarwan b Taylor 0 2 3 0 0 0.00
0.3 Taylor and Sars remove Watto. It was full and just outside off and Watson went for his drive. He couldn't clear Sarwan at mid-off, though. 1/1
View dismissal DA Warner c Benn b Bravo 63 71 53 6 1 118.86
15.3 another low dipping full toss outside off, Warner, again, lunged forward to drive but ended up slicing it to covers. A fine hand from him, though. 113/5
View dismissal RT Ponting* lbw b Taylor 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.4 Ponting is gone! Would you believe it? Two wickets in the over. What drama at The Oval. After couple of wides, Taylor got this one straight on the stumps. Ponting was on his typical forward lunge and couldn't get his bat around the front pad. Gone! Plumb in front. Dead duck. 3/2
View dismissal MJ Clarke c Benn b Edwards 2 13 7 0 0 28.57
3.3 Oh boy! the third wicket is down. What a start by the Windies. They might be fielding poorly but the bowling has been good. Clarke moved outside leg stump to go for the high-risk option of going over the off-side field. Fidel kicked it up from short of length and kept it just outside off, Clarke lunged out as he went for his cut. The edge flew straight to third man. 15/3
View dismissal BJ Haddin c Benn b Pollard 24 31 19 2 1 126.31
11.3 Full and on the stumps, Haddin goes for the big swing but ends up hitting it straight up and Benn gets under it at midwicket. Haddin falls after a little cameo. 81/4
View dismissal DJ Hussey c Fletcher b Bravo 27 27 16 0 3 168.75
17.5 Low full toss and David swings it high over midwicket. Fletcher is some where there. But the ball seems to be landing safely but Fletcher charged ahead, lunged forward to take a diving catch. 143/6
