    8.5 And Sammy's done the trick! It was the slower ball, and Williamson closed his face early, and the ball looped high over Sammy, who leapt up in his follow-through and took a super overhead catch with his left hand. 65/2
    1.5 bowled him! That's a good ball, much fuller, right up in the blockhole, in fact, and much closer to off, and he tries to drive without moving his feet and drags an inside-edge onto his stumps. 12/1
    12.3 Sammy strikes again! It's short, and McCullum pulls, but for once he doesn't get hold of it and it goes uppishly and drops comfortably into the hands of Dwayne Smith at deep square leg 95/3

    14.5 Sammy has three now. He bangs this in, and it goes looping off Anderson's outside edge as he looks to pull. Easy catch for Narine at short fine leg 115/4
