    7.6 got em! Victory for Rana Naved! Pitches on off stump, good movement in, Gayle comes forward and defends, ball raps him on the pads in front of middle and off, and umpire Nigel Llong again raises the finger, Rana exults! 53/2
    1.1 and he's gone! First ball duck! Full and furious on off stump, swings in late, superb ball that, Lara plays all over it, a poor shot selection, you'd have to say, and he's caught in front of middle, crucial strike 1/1
    46.2 Crash! Simmons backs up even before the release, Naved pings the blockhole and bang. The furniture is disturbed. Simmons was trying to drive square on the off side. A very good innings from the youngster. 207/7
    14.2 a good length ball outside off stump, pitches and draws Samuels into a loose poke at it, takes the edge and flies fast and low to Farhat at lone slip, ball just hits the ground before popping into his hands, Farhat claims he took it cleanly, both umpires meet to discuss it, and the verdict is OUT....replays suggested that it kisses the grass first, unfortunate for Samuels, if it had gone to the third umpire he'd still be batting 72/3
    30.6 ripper! tossed up on the middle and off stump line and turning across. Ganga is sucked forward and he plays across the line. Ball turns just enough to miss the outside edge and clips the top of off-stump. Brilliant stuff from Rehman. 133/4
    36.2 Morton departs, done in by the arm ball - pitched on and around the middle and off stump line and this one went straight on at a fairly decent pace. Morton goes back and plays across the line - turned out to be a notting shot in the end and the off stump is pegged back 159/5
    43.6 bowled'm! yorker on the middle and leg stump line - hint of reversing and Smith plays all over it - leg stumps goes for a walk. Gul gets his revenge, West Indies 6 down. 187/6

    12.5 what a catch! Tossed up on middle and off, Hafeez again goes down and tries the slog-sweep, not timed as well as the previous attempts, ends up slamming it high down towards a very wide long-on, looks like its going for maximum but Taylor times his jump to perfection and pouches it above his head, great stuff and Gayle gets the breakthrough 64/1
    25.1 and gone! 43 required off 59 balls and Farhat swings his bat around as if they require 430 off 59 balls - ball clips the top edge and balloons up towards long-off. Samuels moves in from the deep and nicely settles under it. 148/3
    18.6 gone! Tossed up on leg stump, Akmal gets a huge stride forward and goes for the sweep again, ball kisses the gloves and Ramdin takes it neatly, appeals, but Gayle's so confident that he doesnt even look back at the umpire, just breaks out in a smile and walks down towards Ramdin, and behind him Rauf lifts the dreaded finger 103/2
