    0.5 West Indies have lost Charles! Short and he went after it, made a bit of room and tried to slap it back over the bowler's head but totally mistimed, lobbed up towards mid-off and was an easy catch in the end 0/1
    5.5 Gayle's trapped in front, this went straight on, Gayle was caught in front again, rocked forward but not much to defend but played a little outside the line to that, struck him in line with middle and leg and Taufel had no doubt this time, was flatter and straighter this time 14/2
    17.1 not any more, pulled down midwicket's throat it was hit hard and flat and straight to the fielder. Went back to try and find the leg side stands but didn't get the elevation and it was straight to the fielder who took it well and did a little Gayle-style dance 108/6
    13.6 forward around off stump, big cry for leg before, was it pad first? Yes says the umpire and Bravo has to go. He was caught around the knee roll playing forward around off stump, I had doubt of whether he was in line and especially whether there was bat involved but umpire Taufel thought both favoured the bowler and that it wasn't too high either, another big blow 73/3
    15.2 outside off, cut to point and taken on the juggle spilled it above his head to start with but managed to turn and grab it on the rebound. Another big hitter falls to spin, Pollard was reaching out to cut a quite wide back of a length ball, got it in the air above the head of the fielder who reached up with two hands, parried the chance before turning and grabbing with two hands 87/4
    15.3 swept off the stumps first ball, missed and given out lbw looked pretty straight, a dangerous shot first up and paid the price, I think Taufel has got this decision right. The batsman was late on the stroke and caught on the knee roll 87/5

    12.1 caught at point, that is a body blow to Sri Lanka! Mahela played the reverse pull but the ball was on the shorter side and he top edged it straight to point. That D-L par score is going to climb now. It looked like the drizzle was playing on Mahela's mind 60/4
    1.1 the off stump has gone cartwheeling towards the keeper, gloom on the face of Sri Lankan fans, what a ball, landed on the off, short of a good length and nipped away just a hint to beat his defense and take out off stump 6/1
    9.3 Pollard takes a good low catch at deep midwicket, Sanga appeared to have handled it well, made room and Badree followed him, short and he pulled it well but found the fielder, Pollard kept his calm, bent low and took it well inches from the ground 48/2
    10.4 bowled him! The pressure's got to Mathews. After three dot balls, when he moved towards leg and tried to play through the off, Mathews went towards the off side, got down on one knee and tried to scoop over short fine leg. The line was on middle and leg from Sammy and once Mathews missed, he was a goner 51/3
    12.3 Perera drives to long off and Mendis has been run out after a misfield I think! Sri Lanka are crumbling here. The batsman decided to take on Bravo's arm after he failed to pick the ball up cleanly. Bravo recovered well though and fired the throw to Narine, who collected and broke the stumps. Mendis dived but in vain 61/5
    13.1 another run out! Ramdin has run out Perera! The ball hit the pad and rolled close on the leg side, Perera set off for a leg bye. Ramdin was quick to scamper to his right, collect the ball and nail the stumps at the bowler's end with a direct hit. Perera was well short. Samuels was standing in the middle of the pitch after following through and was actually asking Ramdin not to throw. The ball zipped past his feet and on to the stumps 64/6
    14.3 caught at wide long on! Thirimanne tried to slog it for six but mis-timed the shot, Charles was in position and he took the catch easily. Look at Sammy celebrate, he's ecstatic. Gayle and his captain are busting out the Gangnam 69/7
    16.3 caught at deep cover! Kulasekara backs away and slaps a slightly shorter ball towards deep cover, where Badree comes running in from the boundary and holds on. That has to be that 96/8
    18.4 that's it, West Indies are the World Twenty20 champions. Malinga slogs the ball high towards long-on, where Bravo settles under the catch and sprints towards his team-mates. There's gangnam all over the outfield, Ramdin is cartwheeling, sort of, West Indies are champions! There's going to be such a party in their hotel tonight 101/10
    17.5 Bravo begins to dance after catching Mendis at deep midwicket. He tried to slog for six but didn't hit it anywhere near the boundary. And look at that celebration. It looks like several West Indian players are dusting off Samuels' clothes. Such joy 100/9
