    3.3 Roach has got Amla in slightly controversial fashion. Several things happened there. First up, Roach delivered a snorter of an inducker, accentuated by the fact that he delivered it from wide of the crease. It was always coming in, and then landed on a length outside off before nipping in. Amla was cut in half as he looked to force from the crease, and ended up getting an inner edge that flew low down to the leg side. The keeper Devon Thomas who has been making a lot of noise, pulled a blinder, arresting his momentum and diving low to the left. The umpire asked Amla to wait, to check if Roach over-stepped. The replays suggested it was cut and go. If I were the third ump, I'd have probably said no-ball, but it was deemed legal. WI have struck 15/1
    28.3 Pollard sets off on extravagant celebrations, Smith is bowled as he looks to swipe a delivery to the leg side, he plays well outside the line of that one and the ball crashes into off, the breakthrough West Indies desperately needed 139/3
    4.6 Ladies and gentlemen - we have a game here. Kallis is gone. Lovely bit of bowling from Benn, lands this on a length around middle and leg, and tempts Kallis into the cover drive. Only, Kallis was around half a foot short of the length, and the ball spun like the Indian-made tops you get in Chandni Chowk. Kallis ended up getting an outside edge that flew quick to Sammy at the lone slip. Did it carry? Kallis did not wait for the replays to vindicate it - he just asked Sammy. How good is that to see? Great scenes. This game has come alive. 20/2
