    15.3 silly shot and Clark gets stuck in, much to his pleasure after the earlier drop! Gayle gets up on one leg again and tries to flick the ball across the line, but its short and not on for that shot and it goes straight to Lee at mid-on, who takes it easily and breaks into a jig 64/1
    44.1 there's Casson's first wicket in Tests, and what a time to get in! Its flighted up and bounces from just outside leg stump, Marshall gets back in his crease and tries to nudge it around the corner but the ball goes off bat and onto his hip before Jaques, fielding under the helmet at short leg, dives superbly to his right to pluck the catch one-handed and very low to the ground 181/3
    35.5 Clarke does the job! Quicker ball, curves in towards the stumps, pitches in line and straightens, Sarwan is back in the crease and somehow misses it, he's dead in front and that is as plumb as they come 159/2
    83.3 got him! Clark's removed Chanderpaul, trapped in front to a quick, straight ball on middle-and-leg. Perhaps a touch high, but the decision's been made 303/5
    82.6 and he's gone! Full delivery from Casson, Bravo pushed forward tentatively and the ball went straight into the hands of Jaques at silly point 303/4
    93.3 got him, trapping him in line with middle and leg, the ball not getting up much as he tries to play around it, pushing it to midwicket and falling away 345/6
    94.2 but he's gone this time! Johnson angles it across him and he's tempted to fish at it, taking the outside edge through to Haddin who's roaring almost before he's taken it 351/7
    99.3 gone! Not the best of shots, flaying at this wider delivery, and he gets a thin edge through to the wicketkeeper 375/8
    100.5 gone! Another huge swing but he's beaten by the spin, skying it to Hussey who runs around from cover to take a fairly simple catch 375/9
    105.4 gone! A flashing drive outside off, the ball flying to Haddin's right 387/10
