    69.1 Shilly gets Parana finally. This time Sammy holds on at slip. Parana misses his 3rd 100 in 4 Tests. This one landed on middle and leg, gripped and turned away with extra bounce. Parana had a loose waft at it and got a thick edge that went at good height to Sammy at slip. He holds on and WI have broken through 197/3

    26.5 Yorker! Roach has blown Dilshan away with a Waqareque piece of brilliance here. No movement, no nothing, just raw pace, that landed just in front of the crease in line with off stump and then bombarded it out of its nest as Dilshan tried, belatedly, to keep it out. He didn't have a chance. He's been blown away. West Indies have broken through 102/1
    28.6 the drop hasn't cost West Indies much. Roach is in the middle of a crucial spell and he's accounted for Sanga here. Fatal flash from Sanga to a ball that was angling away from off stump line. He did not have to play it, and ended flashing at it away from the body. Thick outside edge, flies away high to Sammy at a widish fly slip, he juggles but holds on 110/2
    78.4 Nash has his 2nd Test wicket. He's been serving up a lot of bad balls here, probably took Mahela by surprise with a good one. It was tossed up on middle and leg stump, slower through the air and invited Mahela into an early drive. He popped it right back and Nash took a smart catch low down to his left 233/4
