    10.1 It's a day for marvellous catches today. Pollard, already the giant that he is, times his jump at midwicket to perfection to take a one-hander. Plucks that out of thin air. The ball was short on middle stump and his pull has no power to it. Hit the top of the bat and just popped up in the air on the leg side. If it wasn't Pollard there, I suspect no other player on the field could've got his hand to it. First-ball strike after the break. 65/2
    1.6 what a catch! Look at that. Kane Williamson fives Fabian Allen a run for his money. Sangakkara again caught at backward point. Sees width and slaps off the backfoot. Williamson dives to his left with left hand outstretched and it sticks on. Brilliant catch 14/1
    19.3 good length on off stump, tries to hit that to Miami. It's a slower ball and the shot has no power. Goes straight up and Imran Khan, at mid off, takes a simple catch 149/5
    10.2 It's a double blow from Riaz here. His international team-mate Wasim plays the wrong line to the full ball on middle stump. He tried to flick that off his pads but the extra pace from the bowler gets to him. Struck him straight on middle stump. The umpire raises his finger. A short stay at the crease. Riaz on a hat-trick 65/3
    10.4 Three wickets in four balls!, good length just outside off stump and the newcomer inside-edges that punch into his stumps. He tried to play at it tentatively, but the ball was too close to his body. Misses the hat-trick, but crucial wickets here. 65/4

    10.4 good length on middle stump and he tries to chip that over the infield. It's in the air, and taken. There's more power in that lofted drive and the wind takes the ball deeper than the batsman would've liked. Rovman Powell, at long on, runs a few feet in and takes a simple catch. A sluggish innings from Smith finally comes to and end. 51/4
    1.6 oh, cleaned him up. Breaches the defence of Williamson who hangs back. Fires it quick and flat and it skids through to flatten off-stump.Comes on pretty straight as well and Williamson is playing for the turn perhaps 10/1
    4.3 short of a length, tapped to point with an open bat face and they charge for a single. Actually there is a moment's hesitation from Malik and a direct hit has been nailed by Mathurin at the non-striker's end. And he has paid the ultimate price for the hesitation, well short of the crease. The non-striker called early enough, Malik just didn't seem keen to start off 23/2
    9.1 very full and angling in on the stumps, Hosein drills to point off the outside part of the bat. They attempt a dicey single and there is a direct throw at the non-striker's end. Takes on Sami's arm and perishes as he is well short 48/3
    18.6 oh dear, why did he look to experiment? This was the big wicket and the experienced Sami delivers. Full on middle stump and Pollard runs across to the off side to paddle that cute. Flies off his outside edge and the ball had quite a hang time. Point composes himself and takes the catch. What an important dismissal. And a dot ball, too. Pollard tried to go over the short fine-leg fielder, but alas 134/9
    10.6 and he finishes with a wicket! If Wahab took three in his 11th, Sami takes two himself. Hits the deck hard on a short-ish length and Pooran tries to pull that. Not enough bounce in that delivery for that shot, and it takes the bottom edge that crashes one-bounce into the stumps. First-ball duck 52/5
    16.1 slower ball wide outside off stump, slogs that into the leg side and it's in the air. Looked like it was going for a six, but Foo, at the deep holds on to the catch. Not enough power from Barnwell, although that slog looked like it had the distance. The slower pace from Williams does the trick. 102/6
    17.5 full toss outside off and Parnell can't punish the loose ball. He swings at it, and sends the ball high in the air towards cow corner. Foo has been busy in that region today and is rewarded with another catch 124/7
    18.3 short and outside off, Riaz tries that slog once again. Takes the edge once more and the ball loops up to the fielder at point. Simple catch, despite him looking into the sun. Sami seemed to know exactly where Riaz's weak-spot was. Two deliveries at the same area. Gets the reward this time 132/8

    19.6 And a wicket to end the innings. Tridents are all out, and Tallawahs take revenge for yesterday's loss. Full on off stump and the ball finds the slog's outside edge. Pops up in the air and short third man takes an easy catch. Sangakkara looks like a very content man. 142/10
