    5.1 gone! That landed outside off stump and kept low, Chanderpaul stood leaden-footed and went for the cut, but gets an inside edge onto off stump, he's gone and Bracken jumps in celebration 49/1

    9.4 what a ball! Full and fast, moves in and Gayle goes defending, ball beats him for pace and knocks back off stump, the ball swung just enought to beat the outside of the bat, and Bracken has done all the damage this afternoon 80/3
    7.3 gone! Change of pace, lands it on middle and leg and all Sarwan can do is turn that off the outer edge of the bat for the dolliest of catches to mid-on, a tame dismissal, as he closed the face of the bat on the attempted whip, and Bracken has another 65/2

    25.1 Another one goes. And then there were two. Bravo is foxed by a ball coming in and he shoulders arms. Shock, Surprise..... the ball turns in and he is caught dead in front. 125/8
    14.5 excellent catch! Amazing! Full and moving away outside off stump, Lara comes well forward and defends, but that little bit of deviation was enough to draw the edge and Gilchrist behind the stumps dived to his left and holds onto a fine one-handed catch, that ball was dipping, bye bye Lara 88/4
    18.2 gone! Hits the deck on a great length - typical McGrath - and Morton stands and chases it, a regulation thick edge into Gilchrist's gloves and West Indies slip further 94/5
    22.4 gone! Pitched up full on the pads, he goes for the flick, smashed off the middle of the bat but he can only pick out Ponting at mid-on, Samuels continues to disappoint 113/6
    24.6 gone! Quick and bang on the stumps, Baugh shuffles once too much and tries to play across the line, the ball keeps low and catches him on the hop dead in front, its a simple decision for Koertzen, the end is near for West Indies 125/7

    28.6 Splat....What a calpyso collapso. 139.2kmph yorker-length delivery, came in with the angle, Bradshaw tried to ping the gap in the cover, the bat-angle opened up and the ball brushed the inner-edge and disturbed the furniture. 136/9

    30.4 And the West Indian innings ends in confusion. A run out. Collymore pushes a length-delivery to the on side, sets off for a run, Taylor doesn't concur with the idea. Meanwhile Symonds runs to his right from short midwicket, swoops on the ball, flicks a throw and its a fatal hit. 138/10

    2.6 Got him! Gilchrist falls early. Bradshaw pinged the full length and in the channel outside offstump. Gilchrist ends up driving on-the-up and inside the line and the ball moves just enough to take the outside edge. Flew straight to Gayle at first slip who swallows it. One down, nine to go for West Indies while Australia require another 127 runs 12/1

    3.6 Taylor has nailed Ponting! Game on! Absolutely plumb. Ponting lunges forward and across to a fullish delivery on the middle stump line and ends up playing around his front pad and is caught dead in front. As Micheal Holding would say, that would have missed the leg and the off, would have taken out the middle. 13/2
