    3.5 another failure for Simmons, and New Zealand have struck with one of the new balls, Southee is pumped, nice line, angles it in full just outside off stump, it starts to move away before pitching, Simmons is tentative, ends up shuffling across in the crease, and feathering it to the keeper, as he pushes away from the body, shot of a man in no form 10/1

    37.3 respite, belated, for New Zealand, Gayle has drilled a full toss off his pads straight to deep midwicket, his expression gives nothing away, Samuels walks over to shake his hand, and Gayle walks back with a raised bat to generous applause, what an entertainer 227/3
    18.1 there's the breakthrough New Zealand were desperately searching for, Dwayne Smith is gone as he looked to play a full delivery towards long-on, a leading edge and that swirls towards long-off, safely taken 98/2

    40.6 that looked gone, Pollard misses a full toss angled in, struck in front of middle and leg, and given right away, however, ball tracker shows us the delivery would have missed leg stump with the angle 253/4
    43.6 gone, New Zealand have not done badly in these end overs, Southee sends another yorker for Bravo's legs, he cannot get them out of the way, pings the boot and crashes into the off stump, Southee appealed initially before realising he did not need to, Bravo limps off in some pain 272/5

    5.6 the third swat he has played this over, and this time he picks out short midwicket, who had just moved in, Rampaul digging it back of a length again, and smiling and pointing knowingly towards Gayle after the catch was taken 24/1
    25.5 that is it, Guptill is gone, soft dismissal, pushing a full and quick delivery straight back at Samuels who accepts it happily 121/3
    11.5 this is another edge, this isn't running away to the third man boundary, this has been taken low to his right by Bravo at slip, Narine strikes in his first over, he's finding international cricket at home easy indeed 62/2
    36.5 shout for lbw, that looked very close, swings in on middle, hit low on the front leg as he looks to swing across the line, not given initially, West Indies review, and replays show it hitting middle and leg stump low, review at a crucial juncture in the match ends a big stand 195/5
    27.5 straight to midwicket, and Samuels gets his second wicket, Latham shuffling across, going deep in the crease and punching in the air, Charles the substitue fielder dives to his right and plucks a low catch 125/4

    37.6 that looks like another one, short third man had come in a bit, as they took him on for a quick run, Pollard swooped in on the ball and lobbed it to the keeper, Southee put in the dive but by then Ramdin had already taken the bails off, gone by more than a foot 200/6
    39.5 bowled 'em, flighted, he tries to drive, the ball spins in a bit, enough to beat the bat and hit the stumps through the gate 214/7
    44.1 Oram gives it away, makes room to swing it over midwicket, it was an offcutter, he takes a hand off the bat as he swings, and finds deep midwicket with precision 242/8
    46.1 gone, Rampaul fullish and swinging in on the stumps, Mills has a go at it, gets an inside edge which clatters into the stumps 253/9
    46.6 swung to deep midwicket, they hesitate to go for the second, it was going to be too tough, the throw is to the keeper, and Nethula is out comfortably, not even in the frame 260/10
