3.1 Smith makes an appearance on the scorecard! Good length delivery outside the off stump. Gayle is beaten by the lack of pace and doesn't quite meet the ball the way he wanted to. As he is through playing the shot, it seems as if he has chipped it in the air. He lofts it into the hands of Steve Smith at long-off 30/1
    18.1 fuller ball outside the off stump. He makes room and smashes it to sweeper cover. Anton Devcich comes running in and looks to have completed the catch. He is unsure though and the umpires on the field take the help of the third umpire. On replays, it turns out to be a sensational catch as he is shielding his eyes with his palm as the bowler is bowling. He seem to have over run the ball as he takes it with one hand, his left hand. Brilliant catch 205/4
    6.3 short ball outside the off stump. He looks to pull it. He gets a top-edge that does not climb and go over the the keeper as Pollard lacks the pace. He edges one back to the keeper 51/2
    13.3 comes down the track and looks to loft it away but goes away squarer. The catch is taken at deep midwicket 130/3
