    25.4 And West Indies self-combust. One just wonders if one has to do anything more than wait for West Indies to self-combust. Simmons, looking to press on with the scoring, makes room and lofts this length ball straight to deep point. An entertaining innings, but he has left the job unfinished. As Ian Bishop mentions on air, it is not so much the shot that is wrong, but the timing of the shot: in the over immediately after WI had lost a wicket 135/4
    0.2 Edwards gone first ball. Slightly strange batting. A very open stance for the left-arm bowler, the ball pitches outside leg, angles away, Edwards hands his bat out, and it kisses the edge on the way through. Squared up by a regulation delivery 1/1
    8.4 What a horrible horrible shot! Birthday boy Lara won't approve. This would have been a wide outside off had Bravo not decided to try and hit the leather of it. All he manages is the toe end, which settles with third man for an easy catch 57/2
    24.3 Sarwan ends what has of late become - and it pains me to say this, because he has been a fine player - a typical Sarwan innings. Eat up a lot of balls, build up the pressure, then hole out. Was looking to hit this over extra, I presume, but ends up hitting straight down long-off's lap - for 28 off 56 132/3
