    3.4 slog sweep across the line fetches the first wicket. Samuels persists with flighting it and invites Finch to go for the heave over the leg side. Misses completely and has his off stump pegged back 33/1

    4.5 this is the skidder and Warner's bat speed is just not quick enough! Might have stayed a touch low too as Badree targets middle. The batsman was making room to cut, but fails. Has a satisfied little smile as he jogs over to his fielders to celebrate 41/2
    5.4 he's missed the stumps on the first attempt, but he's broken it on the second and Watson's back foot had not moved back into safety! That's a major brain fade! Narine tosses the one that spins the other way and Watson gropes for it. His back foot was bang on the line and he seemed completely unaware of it. To the point of giving Ramdin a second bite at the cherry 41/3
    11.3 picks up the length ball and swings it to deep midwicket, where Bravo runs forward and secures an important catch! It's to the longer part of the ground he goes for and was backing himself to clear the boundary. And in current form, I'm not too sure too many people could blame him 100/5
    9.3 skips down the track and he's picked out the man at short midwicket! Samuels had seen the batsman advancing and adjusted his length, but it was still not too threatening. But Bailey has shoveled it straight into the hands of his opposite number 77/4

    17.5 oh dear! He's gone for a premeditated reverse sweep and has lost his leg stump! Narine, as he often does, claims a crucial wicket in the death. This was too full for the shot but he goes through with it. The ball sneaks between his legs and lights up those LEDs 152/6
    18.2 he seemed to had fluffed it, but he threw himself back and completes the catch with a whole lot of flair! This was full with a bit of width attached to it and Faulkner looked for the inside out smash over cover. His slower pace doesn't allow for much timing on it and this goes up high than long. Bravo had raced up from long-off and had almost overran it. The ball pops out of his reverse cup, but he had his eyes on the ball all the way and just propels himself off his feet in a full-length dive to catch it behind him 154/7

    4.6 there's the first one! Haddin holds onto a regulation take and Smith has to walk back! Wouldn't have looked out of place in a Test, with Starc probing outside his off stump. Goes for an on the up drive but only succeeds in nicking off. Is that the opening Australia needed? 50/1
    12.1 so much for not bowling the legspinner against Gayle! This was the googly, he comes down the track, perhaps a little too much, and drills this straight into the hands of Maxwell at deep midwicket. Collects the catch coolly and then erupts in celebration, just as Bravo did when he caught Maxi in the same position in the first innings 101/2
    13.5 Maxi, you beauty! Snaffles an important grab right on the deep square leg boundary! Goes for the pull as he sees the ball short and with enough room to free his arms. Struck it rather well, but the fielder had positioned himself perfectly, leapt up to intercept the ball from going for six 107/3
    16.3 another slower ball and Haddin flings to his right and pulls off a stunner! Samuels seemed to have nothing in his kitty except making room on leg stump and swinging wildly. This time the lack in pace deceives him as he gets a thick edge through to the keeper, who did spectacularly well to dive and hold on 130/4
