    10.2 And that ladies and gentlemen is the end of Gayle. Is it the end of the chase as well? West Indies have shown a sad tendency to meander aimlessly, if not collapse, once Gayle goes. It was a full-length delivery outside off and Gayle carved it low to short cover. 40/1
    27.6 The middle stump has been pegged back. Richards backed away to the leg side for the big hit through off but edged the full delivery to his stumps. He hobbles back to the pavilion. 119/3
    44.1 And he is gone first ball! Oh well .. he did try. It was the off break outside off stump, Sarwan tried to late cut it but got a thin edge 236/8
    17.5 Done in by the slower one! Deonarine had no idea. He leaned forward for the drive and pushed it so tamely to mid-off. 77/2
    43.6 And SA strike back. Huge wicket this. It was a full length delivery outside off and Bravo threw his hands at it .. The ball flew straight to Kallis at sweeper cover. Surely, game over now? 236/7
    38.1 Botha takes a superb catch at long-off. Pollard lofted it towards the deep, Botha ran in and flung himself forward to hang on to a good catch. The ball was dipping rapidly on him but he managed to get his palms under the ball. Windies need 119 from 71 balls. 182/4
    38.6 Clattterrr! Full in length and straight on the middle stump. Taylor goes for the big hoick across the line and misses. 189/5
    40.4 Ramdin is run out. He pushed it towards short midwicket and ran for the risky single. Miller grabbed the ball, took aim and fired. Bull's eye. 200/6
    not out
    47.6 Rampaul is run out It was a full pitched delivery and Sammy mistimes the drive to McLaren. Rampaul had backed up too far, trying to get the single that would have given Sammy the strike. McLaren stops the ball, turns and runs to break the stumps. Just one wicket left. What drama here. 283/9
    48.1 Pollard, the runner is run out Game over. SA have won. Sammy is crestfallen. Smith fires in the direct hit. It was a length delivery on the middle stump line, pushed out to covers.. and they run for the single that would bring Sammy on strike. It was always going to be tight. Smith picks it at short cover, and flicks it back hand and it's direct hit at the non-striker's end with Pollard just short of the crease. Pollard threw in a desperate dive but it was not to be. 283/10
