    41.1 short delivery and Watson mistimes the pull in the air and Bravo at midwicket dives to his left and takes the catch inches off the ground, wonderful effort and an excellent catch. 114/3
    8.1 Bravo strikes for West Indies and he gets the early wicket, fuller delivery outside the off stump and Katich drives on the up and Barath at extra cover takes a good catch to his left, excellent effort. 33/1
    22.5 bowled! played on! Ponting is back to a length delivery outside off, attempting to cut through the off side, he gets it horribly wrong, managing only a thick bottom edge onto the pitch and into the stumps 68/2
    47.4 caught behind! done by a beautiful delivery that pitches a good length and just nips off the pitch, Hussey is prodding awkwardly stranded on the crease, he gets an inside edge which is gratefully collected by the keeper who immediately throw the ball up in the air in celebration 133/4

    55.3 caught! North rocks onto the front foot to drive a ball that angles across the left-hander, it's the angle that does him as he gets a thick outside edge that carries to Sarwan at first slip who takes a sharp low catch 139/5
