    11.5 Simmons could not have been plumber if he wasn't offering a shot. Pacy delivery from Mozzie after the botched slower ball, it had leg stump in its sights from the time he delivered it. Simmons stayed on the crease and tried to work it to the leg side. He missed, and the ball thudded flush into the front pad. 69/3

    6.3 and he's played all over this one. Full from O'Keefe, Barath was looking to work it to the leg side with the wrists without getting the front foot across enough. He ended up leaving a gap small enough for the ball to find a way through. Middle stump out of the ground. It just seemed to be too full for that choice of stroke. 41/1
    9.1 Bravo is on his way back home, and the run-rate falls under six. Alarm bells for T&T, and I suspect O'Keefe gets some credit for this wicket, having bowled a frustrating previous over at Bravo. Over-pitched well outside off, it was too far from Bravo for the up and over cover drive, he ended up scooping it off the toe-end high in the air. Point back-pedalled and took it well. 54/2
    17.3 a stunner from Warner at long-on. He's scurried in like an energiser bunny, dived forward and scooped a dying take inches from the ground. His hands were together when he dived for the catch, the left hand came off as he pouched it, and he did well to throw the hands up even as he fell to ensure it didn't touch the grass. Immense presence of mind. Ganga's curate egg of an innings comes to an end. 112/5
    16.4 Ramdin holes out off the leading edge. It was a touch wide of off stump, Ramdin looked to go up and over the leg side as he cleared away, and ended up carving it high. It comes down in the covers for a simple catch. 106/4
    19.4 Cooper is still up to his antics. He backs away to a full ball just outside off and looks to scythe it over point, but misses. The ball goes straight to the keeper, but Cooper tries to steal a single. The keeper throws, he hits the stumps as Cooper hustles back in. The ball goes nowhere, and Cooper then tries to steal an overthrow. The non-striker sends him back, the keeper picks it up and uproots the stumps. The appeal is referred upstairs, only for the third umpire to find Cooper was out the first time the ball hit the stumps. He may have got away with it, if he hadn't tried the run a second time! 137/6

    9.4 Warner's missed the pull now, and middle stump is flattened. Huge wicket, he was going really well. Ganga keeps it just short of a length, Warner looks to crunch it against the turn, but I reckon it wasn't as short as he thought, and it slipped through to hit middle. The spinners are slowly getting into business here. 65/2
    6.6 Watson's on his way, should have been gone plumb lbw much earlier, and he's done some damage given the chance. It was the wafted legbreak from Narine, Watson was playing for the offbreak as he looked to cross-bat to the leg side, and the deviation took the top edge. Easy catch for long-on running in. 48/1
    11.5 this pitch is slowing down faster than you'd imagine, and faster than NSW would like. Smith goes for the cut, the ball stays low as it grips and turns in, takes the inside edge and clatters into the castle. NSW are in trouble now. 72/3
    17.3 the captain's gone, another mis-hit into the outfield. He was again looking to drag it against the angle from outside off, and ended up top-edging the bunt to mid-on. Rampaul's tournament average is 7.2! 110/6
    15.2 Steve is on his way, and T&T are taking control of this match. He jumps out in vain search of a six, the ball is well wide of off stump and he ends up dragging it off the bottom half. The ball takes off into the night and comes down into mid-off's hands as he moves back. A bit of a fumble from Simmons, but he holds on. 90/4
    16.5 Rohrer holes out on a pitch that's becoming excruciatingly tough to force the pace on. Offcutter on a length around middle and off, he looked to hoist it over midwicket and spiralled it without timing to the man running in from deep midwicket. Another near drop as the fielder almost let the ball slip through, but the little finger helped him hold it. 102/5

    18.1 T&T's luck has changed drastically from the other day. Almost no boundaries in the end overs today, and everytime a batsman has come close to connecting he's holed out. Like O'Keefe here. Length ball in the slot for the slog sweep and he muscles it into the deep, and picks the man patrolling the deep. 115/7
    18.6 Or he needs to get one and return for an impossible second. That's what he's done. Mozzie has strike for the last over. Fired in full by Narine, on middle and leg, Starc manages to squeeze it out to deep square leg, and returns for a second he was never going to make. He's run out by yards. 123/8
