    17.4 Gayle is run out. Oh what a way to go.Marshall had driven a fullish delivery back down the track and the lunging Johnson had got a hand on it and it went on to break the stumps and Gayle couldn't get back into the crease in time. He was in murderous mood but has to go back to the hutch. 86/1
    20.2 Super catch from Ronchi, diving to his right. He had gone down the track and tried to blast a wide delivery over the off-side field on a bent knee but got a thick edge. And Ronchi went flying to his right to pluck it. Viv Richards, on the wireless, says, "Marshall cannot be criticized for that shot. You can't be hars on him. The shot was on." He was trying to be aggressive. Great catch by Ronchi, though. 99/2
    35.5 full and well outside off stump, Sarwan tried to blast it over extra cover but couldn't clear Symonds. Out for 31. Viv Richards says, "The intentions were pretty good but he just didn't get the height." 168/4
    32.6 Ronchi snaps another good catch. Chanderpaul edged the intended cut shot and Ronchi managed to take it on the second attempt. 160/3
    36.6 Given out lbw but he was struck outside off stump. Bravo went for a sweep, missed and it might have hit the off but he was struck outside the line. Richards says, "Very unlucky. Tough luck Bravo" 172/5
    41.3 Ronchi is in the act again. Fletched walked down the track, tried to swing a length delivery outside off over midwicket, missed but Ronchi,standing up to the stumps, didn't. 195/6
    45.3 he moved outside leg, tried to cut a short of length delivery but it was the slower one and he ended up chopping it on to his stumps. 214/8
    44.3 Wicket no 300 for Lee. It was the slower one and Sammy was early into the intended lofted shot, edged it towards short mid-off region, Lee called for it early and pouches it safely. 211/7
    46.4 Lee the footballer does the trick. Powell had dabbed a short of length delivery close on the off side, set off for the run, was sent back and he slipped. Meanwhile, Lee had rushed along and kicked it on to the stumps. A neat little left footer. 220/9

    0.5 Marsh is cleaned up by Fidel . It landed on a length around the off stump and curved in a touch, Marsh was looking to leave it, saw the straightening, tried to bring his bat down. Too late. Thin nick and it crashed into the off stump. 1/1

    36.3 But he is gone now. He went for the paddle shot but made contact with the top half of the bat and it looped to short fine leg. But this has been a super entertaining knock 207/3
    33.2 holes out to long-on. He went down on his knee and swung a delivery from outside off to the fielder. But it has been a welcome return to form for Ponting. 191/2
