    5.3 delivers a length delivery which bends in on middle and leg as the left-hand batsman played all around it. The batsman decides to take his chances as he goes for the review. The line looks good here on second viewing, the only question is height right now, but this showed to go on to hit the top of the stumps, so Amjad has to go 17/3
    3.1 and Holder has brought West Indies their first wicket with this length delivery which bounces i higher than Andri expected, as he looked to pull in the bat at the last moment, but this was able to glance the edge and go through to the keeper at a comfortable height. WI will need plenty more of this as they look to race against a cyclone here in Napier 13/1
    5.1 Holder is producing the goods with another magnificent back of a length which nips into the batsman from outside off, as he presented the blade. The extra bounce does him no disservice as this outside edge flies over to the first slip, who is able to get his mitts around it comfortably 16/2
    6.4 played a fantastic shot the ball before, but is sent to the change room with this vicious inswinging yorker from Taylor that has him castled as he fell over. Wicked delivery there from Taylor, and Khurram has to go 21/4
    8.2 cleans up the prolific Associate run-scorer with this length delivery which knocks back both middle and leg as Anwar played all around it. West Indies well on top and threatening to run over this UAE side with a bulldozer 26/5
    13.5 Holder makes it four as he castles the top of off with this length delivery which nips back in off the seam. Has been a real captain's effort so far from the WI skipper, with drinks called onto the field 46/6

    40.3 and the breakthrough finally comes for West Indies as Javed was looking to just slam this length delivery over long on, but ends up getting a bottom-edge on this slower ball, with the ball crashing into the stumps. Javed gets a wonderful reception as he heads back to the dressing room. Excellent knock under pressure. Has it done enough though? 153/7
    43.4 Aziz now has to go after his spirited effort as he chips this floated ball straight into the hands of Holder at cover, who takes it simply. UAE now nine down, but a wonderful applause for Aziz, who has really produced a special knock for his side. WI will be glad to see the back of him, but they also know they have let their foot of the gas here. Really bizarre from the WI 167/9
    42.1 Russell delivers again in this new spell as he shows the benefit of plugging away at those yorkers. Gets Naveed to play all around this one which hones in on leg stump. UAE now eight down, with WI looking to bundle them as soon as possible, especially with the eventual rain in the forecast for later 167/8
    47.4 and it is all over as Taylor beats Tauqir with this fuller length that goes off the front pad before crashing into the stumps 175/10

    3.1 I better find some cover now from all the irate WI fans as Smith goes after this back of a length, going across him, which just straightens on him as he ends up feeding an inside-edge to the keeper behind. Snicko shows there was some contact there. Smith's indifferent World Cup campaign continues as he exits for 15 33/1
    15.2 length delivery which Charles looked to bludgeon over his head, but ends up getting a top-edge which flies high to the fielder at mid-on, with Krishna getting under it comfortably in the end 109/3
    7.4 you just knew this was coming as Samuels looked a touch casual outside his off stump. Ends up slicing away this short of a length, going across once more, to the man at backward point, who is able to catch it at a very comfortable height. Guruge now has two as West Indies look for the quick runs 53/2

    17.2 Javed has done the trick once more as Russell mistimes this attempted swat over long on, getting this to spoon high over to the bowler, who had to move just a couple of yards to his left to get under it. Disappointing from Russell as WI go four down now in chase of these runs 118/4
