    19.4 poor, limp throw from deep midwicket, and what a dive from Gayle! Still Gayle is gone! Hit to deep midwicket, and Karthik throws in weakly, it bounces twice or thrice before reaching Dhoni. Gayle dives full length, makes it, but the bat bobs up on impact. Unfortunate way to get out 165/6
    11.5 finally they hold on to a catch! Shiv makes room and swings, gets a top edge on this short delivery, and Dhoni runs back and claims this striker 80/1
    15.3 and Jadeja gets a wicket! Stop the press! Low full toss, and Sammy is sort of cramped for room, and doesn't get enough power into it and hits it down long-on's lap 119/2
    18.5 good catch. Zaheer cramps him up by following him down the leg side, and his flick carries towards wide long-on. Yusuf runs from long-on and claims the catch 160/3
    19.1 and he has flicked it straight to midwicket. No timing again, it is a length ball, and he chips it straight to the fielder 163/4
    19.3 and another wicket! Sarwan slogs, and it's not full enough for the shot, and top-edges this to midwicket 164/5

    3.1 Pollard! Short ball again, doesn't rise much and Vijay plays the release shot, the pull, and it goes low towards Pollard at deep square, and he dives forward and gets his hands under it 12/1
    4.4 what do you do with those? That's the literal perfume ball. Fast, short, chasing his nose, Gambhir jumps and tries to sway out of the way - he does nearly everything right - but it kisses the glove. Delivery No. 4.4, unplayable are thou 27/2
    11.6 that makes up for the two runs he fell short of the century by! Brings himself on ahead of Benn, and takes Raina out in his first over. Raina goes for the slog-sweep, and top-edges it down deep midwicket's throat. Not quite the length to slog-sweep, and there is extra bounce in this pitch 80/4
    7.2 slower ball, slower ball, and the plan has worked! And this is audacious, never seen this happen in recent memory! Rohit premeditates the paddle sweep, and the ball lobs off what he claims is his forearm, and Ramdin takes this head high. And Billy Bowden has given this out, but what is Rohit doing, he is arguing, and he is asking for a third-umpire call? Jeff Crowe is waiting for you, Rohit. And what about Billy? He has had an awful over after that poor wide call. Bowden also moves to Taufel to have a chat, and is reminded that the third umpire can intervene only if the catch is not clean 38/3
    12.4 goes for the shot over midwicket, but it is too close for him, and although he connects it well, he doesn't get the elevation and hits it down midwicket's lap 81/5
    18.1 Direct hit, game over! Bravo has not bowled or batted really well, but he makes it up with the fielding. Bhajji has hit this to long-on, straight enough of Bravo, to his left, but he comes around, picks it up with one hand and hits the stumps on the yorker length 139/7
    15.3 Short ball! Short ball! Into the ribs, and Yusuf is hurried into it and pulls it straight down deep fine leg's throat. No power in it, just helped along. He didn't have the time to impart power 114/6
    18.5 Roach will be a relived man! He offers him a low full toss after four consecutive wides, and this deserves to go for six, but Bhajji has mis-hit straight to long-on 150/8

  • West Indies fined for slow over-rate

    Chris Gayle was docked 40% of his match fees, and the rest of the team 20% of theirs, after match referee Jeff Crowe ruled that the home side were two overs behind schedule

  • Rohit fined for showing dissent

    Indian batsman Rohit Sharma has been fined 15% of his match fee for showing dissent at the umpire's decision while batting during the Super Eights match against West Indies at the Kensington Oval on Sunday

  • IPL comparison unfair - Dhoni

    MS Dhoni was running out of reasons to explain his team's problems as their World Twenty20 hopes were left hanging by a thread, but Chris Gayle suggested it was a mental issue for the batsmen

  • Captain Gayle leads the way

    This innings was Gayle at his destructive best, but it was also Gayle at his most mature and composed as he batted for all bar two balls of the innings
