    9.6 Southee hits the timber via the inside edge! He bowls it full and swings it in slightly and gets Gayle going for the expansive drive, big inside edge onto the pad and then onto the stumps, the stumps are erect 31/3
    2.3 the off stump's pegged back! Misjudgement of the line by Brathwaite, he was padding up to one that pitched in line with the stumps and he was expecting it to move away with the angle, lifted his bat and the ball came back in, brushed the pad and knocked back the off stump 7/1
    6.5 this time the edge carries and a sharp take by Ross Taylor! Credit to Boult for inducing this, the same awkward angle across the right-hander, moving away just a shade outside off, Edwards was forward and across and got a thick outside edge to first slip where Taylor dives to his left 23/2
    31.1 you beauty! Craig might have Chanderpaul stumped here! Loads of air which draws the batsman down the track, but it dips on him and Chanderpaul had to lunge out at it with the bat. The ball rips past the outside edge. Watling collected it around his chest and whips the bails off. Big, big wicket this 81/4
    46.1 for the second time in the match Bravo perishes in the same manner - caught at gully! Southee the bowler this time and he bowled it full and wide outside off, set up the trap by pitching it up and tempting him to drive, he went beside the line and drove on the up and found Williamson who held it easily, the extra men on the off side was meant to get him to drive and it worked 129/6
    44.2 edged to slip and West Indies lose a wicket shortly after the rain break! Southee delivers from wide of the crease and it's just short of a length, the ball holds its line after pitching just a shade outside off, Ramdin was forward and the outside edge flew to Taylor's left at first slip, that's two sharp catches by him today 122/5
    73.3 bowled between his legs would you believe it? Craig shifted to round the wicket and he landed the ball on a crack, Holder was shuffling and looking to play it with the turn, kept low and it went through the big gap between his legs 221/8
    51.2 bat-pad catch! Tossed up by Craig on the off stump and gets Roach lunging forward, the ball turns and hits the inside edge which then strikes the pad and lobs to Latham at forward short leg 144/7
    not out
    76.3 caught at short cover and Benn has given it away! The intention was to pitch it up and cut back on the pace, landed outside off and induced the drive, spooned an easy catch to Southee at short cover 232/9
    82.2 Given out lbw and Taylor wants to review it, it looked plumb! This was a fairly unplayable inswinging yorker from Boult, too good for Taylor, he played all around it and was struck on the base of the pad in front of middle stump, the review was a mere formality, it looked obvious in normal speed 254/10
