    3.3 Southee's got Gayle twice in two innings! Once again, it's the one that's angled across him. It was full, it was close to off, and he had to play, but you'd argue he should have been on the front foot. As it is, he pokes from the crease and gets a healthy edge to the keeper 11/2
    1.4 got him! McCullum had Latham in at short midwicket, and he tumbles to his right to take a smart catch after Powell flicks this in the air after it swung into him from middle-and-off 8/1
    11.2 was that bat-pad? Yup! Edwards walked, after he prodded forward and inside-edged this onto his front pad. Looped up to leg gully. Craig has got him twice in this match 30/3
    17.3 got him! there's some turn, there's a lot of bounce, and Watling has taken an exceptional catch to grab that thick outside edge. Off the shoulder of his bat, and Watling moved his hands up to take that above his left shoulder 54/4
    24.2 pads up again, it's closer to off, and the finger goes up after a protracted appeal from Sodhi. Chanderpaul reviews... it's missed his pad and it's come back a long way and hit him on the thigh, but is height an issue? He's stretched out well forward as well. What does Hawkeye say? Umpire's call, just about clipping the leg bail... and he raises that finger again! 76/6
    17.5 he's got a pair! That's two second-ball ducks, and that's a sensational catch from Latham, one-handed, diving to his left from short leg after Samuels poked forward and got a thick inside-edge onto his front pad 54/5
    36.6 bowled him! that was the leg break on the stumps, and just turned enough to straighten. Ramdin slogged across the line and missed. Crashed into middle stump, and they may not need that extra half-hour 121/8
    35.5 loads of turn from outside off, and Roach was looking to get his gloves out of the way as it spun down the leg side. Big appeal, after Williamson took it superbly high down the leg side, and the umpire raises his finger. Tickled his gloves, I think 115/7
    38.2 down the pitch, and that's a sensational catch from Watling, wide and high to his right, after that spun sharply away and took a thick outside edge. Would have gone to Taylor at wide slip if the wicketkeeper hadn't got his gloves in the way. How did he get his gloves in the way? 134/9
    47.4 he's got him! With three balls to go, he bowled one short and wide. Benn slashed at it, got a thick top edge, and Watling, who has been excellent all Test match, took a smart catch very close to the bat. 216/10
