    27.2 another cracking catch from Gayle! Full length from Lewis, Smith drives and it takes a thick outside edge to Gayle's right at first slip, who plucks it with a dive. A sharp, smart catch 152/3
    8.6 there's the breakthrough, and it takes everyone by surprise! Short again, and the substitute Darren Sammy dives forward at midwicket to scoop a miscued pull off the turf. Timely for West Indies, as a blazing start comes to a halt 57/1
    25.6 caught him! What a catch from Gayle. Amla prodded forward, the ball flew to Gayle who took it in his right hand, low, and tumbled forward - the ball coming free of his hand. He flicked it up once, twice before catching it in the back of his hand as he rolled onto his back. A great catch 140/2
