    7.5 gets him, finally! Gave it some air this time, tossed up on middle, tried to dispatch it into the stands over deep midwicket, got the top edge and Ramdin, after waiting ages for it to come down, clasped it easily 83/1

    8.3 full toss on middle, he could have smacked it anywhere but instead played it back straight to the bowler who accepted it gleefully 86/2
    12.1 four down, Miller takes a sharp one at point, short and wide, cut away hard and he hurls himself to his right to snap an excellent catch 106/4
    9.4 three down, cleanly struck but hit flat, came down the track and smacked it hard but straight to Roach at long-off who did well moving to his right and holding on to a sharp one 95/3
    15.4 smashed, ummm not quite, it's actually caught by Pollard running to his right from long-on, flighted on middle and leg, White got under it and tried to launch him over deep midwicket, hit it extremely high, didn't get the desired distance and found the fielder 129/6
    15.2 stumped, Miller bowled it flat outside off, Birt came down the track and tried to push it on the off side, missed and Ramnarine did the rest 128/5

    18.1 ...and gets a wicket, short outside off, Johnson tries to slap it over the off-side field, doesn't get hold of it, Sammy runs back to hold on to a well-judged catch 151/7
    19.6 caught-behind, off the reverse paddle, full outside off, tries to play it towards third man, gets a faint touch and Ramdin makes no mistake 179/8

    1.3 gone! Bowled straight at 149 kmph, lands on a good length and Gayle looks to swing that over midwicket, misses and the stumps take a beating 12/1
    2.2 another one goes, Tait again in action, bowls it on a good length on middle and off and Simmons has a mindless, needless swipe at it, ends up miscuing it to third man where Tait takes a well-judged catch 14/3
    1.4 ...and goes! Short of a good length outside off, moves away a hint, pushes at it from the crease, gets a thick edge straight to Watson at first slip 12/2
    3.6 gone, Tait gets Pollard, West Indies are crumbling, superb delivery, short of a good length and shot away, Pollard prodded at it, got a thin edge straight to the keeper 26/4
    7.3 five down, short on the off, a touch too quick for Hinds who tries to pull, gets the top edge and Watson, at square leg, runs back to snap a well-judged catch 46/5
    17.6 Steve Smith takes another beauty! Even better than the first one, bowled it on a good length on the off, Morton swung it hard and connected well but Smith was there waiting, it appeared as though it would clear him but he timed his jump perfectly and intercepted the ball, clasping it over his head and maintaining his balance to ensure he didn't step over the ropes, superb stuff 126/8
    9.3 That's No.6, Steve Smith times his jump to perfection after running from deep square leg, short and it's pulled hard, runs a few yards to his left, leaps and snaps that comfortably to send West Indies down into further trouble 53/6
    17.5 timed it too well there, was the slower one that was bowled full outside off, made room and lofted it straight towards long-off who takes it easily to deprive him of a half-century 126/7
