18.2 oh dear what a shocking shot, played right across it and is plumb lbw but he reviews it, has he hit this? No. Is it too high? No, umpires call on Hawk Eye. Even if it was going over that deserved to be out because that was a disgusting shot. Standard full ball on off stump, slanting in, he went slightly back and just swiped right across it, missed, was caught above the knee roll but on the back foot and Tony Hill fired him out 64/3
    10.4 back of a length down the leg side, felt for, taken by Ramdin who was convinced of a touch through to him, this time not out is given and the West Indies now review. We're looking for a touch of the glove on the way through. I think he might have gloved it, the ball does change deviation slightly and it's as the ball passes the glove, is there enough evidence, yes! So this time Masakadza has to go 37/1
    17.6 little bit more bounce and caught at short leg. Really nicely bowled, turn and bounce from a length caught the batsman on the crease, it takes a little inside edge as he tried to fend it off, it comes off the pad and presented a very simple chance to short leg 64/2
    29.6 tries to force off the back foot but it's edged and taken at slip a good catch from Gayle going quickly to his left hand side with two hands, well held. Ervine followed it as it turned away from the off stump and got a thick edge but Gayle was alert and took the chance well 92/5
    25.1 saying that, this bounces and takes the top edge to point the ball was too close for the cut shot and he just lobbed it up in the air. Tried to get right back to cut but it went on with the arm cramping him and a little bounce sent the ball ballooning off a top edge to present a chance Chanderpaul could have taken with boxing gloves on 73/4
    38.1 out and you could barely have noticed by everyone's reaction. Length ball on leg stump, went to shovel it again around the corner but simply finds leg slip where Sammy holds onto a sharp chance 114/7
    31.2 turn and bounce, takes the inside edge to leg slip. It's really nice bowling but the batsman went nowhere with his feet and tried another tentative block but was beaten but the sharp turn and bounce that took the inside edge of the bat, popping up for an easy catch to Sammy at leg slip 96/6
    41.2 down the pitch, tries to go over the top but only chips it to midwicket. Five-for for Shillingford. Cremer didn't get to the pitch of the ball having come charging down the pitch, tried to over the infield but got a thick inside edge and it was a simple chance straight to the fielder 138/8
    not out
    42.1 length on leg stump and tucked into the hands of leg slip. It bounced a little and he fended it off trying to play off the back foot but it took the glove and again, found Sammy at leg slip who took a very easy catch, that's his third take of the innings 141/9
    42.2 floated up on the stumps, slog swept and finds deep midwicket. He cleared the front leg and swung hard into the leg side, got a decent connection but not enough and Gabriel took it solidly low with two hands 141/10
