    12 pitched wide of off-stump and Ryder tries to lift the ball in to the leg-side. He doesn't catch all of it and Chattergoon is waiting at deep cover who takes a good catch moving forwards inside the rope 59/2
    2.1 McCullum shuffles down the track as usual and Edwards has pitched the ball up. He tries a defensive push only to catch the outside edge and the keeper Ramdin makes a good diving catch away towards first slip. Excellent start for West Indies 9/1

    14.4 tried to play across his stumps through the leg-side but Jamie How is undone by a full toss from Taylor which strikes middle and off. 68/3
    19.1 flighted up and a touch slower Taylor slices right underneath it and he knows as soon as he hits the ball he's in trouble. The ball soars high and straight in to the hands of the fielder at mid-off 87/5
    16.2 fuller and wider delivery and Flynn plays the drive shot too late and he gets a thin edge which carries through to the keeper. Good timely wicket for West Indies 76/4
    23.1 bowled down the leg-side and Oram leans back and tries to go for the big shot through midwicket. He catches the top-edge and Edwards makes a great diving catch running in from deep square leg 114/6

    23.3 captain Vettori tries to angle the ball away to the third man area but it's too straight for that sort of shot and he plays the ball on to his own stumps. Not the first captain to go out first ball today... 115/7
    26.2 Mills has to go for it but he picks out Miller at long-on who takes a simple catch as there's not enough on it to reach the boundary 135/8

    11.4 great ball! Vettori bowls a lot tighter and a touch quicker and Gayle plays the shot too late as the ball squeezes under hit bat and touches the top of off-stump. Such an important wicket. We all know the damage he is capable of 61/2
    3.4 well bowled! Swinging in and Chattergoon goes for a big drive and catches an inside edge playing the ball on to his stumps 14/1

    20.4 tries to go for the big shot again but Patel pitches the ball well and hits the stumps as Nash takes a vain swipe trying to play through the leg-side 96/4
    22.3 slower ball and Pollard makes good contact but doesn't take all of it and it's a long boundary over a midwicket. Taylor seems to loose it in the floodlights momentarily but he picks it up to take the catch with safe hands 110/5
