    19.1 short on middle stump and the natural angle of the delivery brings the ball into the batsman, he looks to make room and tries to slog that onto the off side but finds the outside edge of his bat instead. A skyer that goes to third man, who takes the catch inches away from the boundary. Walton goes for a well made 60. 122/5
    3.4 and Guptill's gone. Badree drags that length back, short, straight, accurate. Guptill gives himself room, and looks to scythe a cut, but the ball drifts on, beats the bat and rattles into middle stump. Just that length and pace is so hard to face. 31/1
    12.4 he's broken the partnership, full on middle stump again and he looks to send that out of the park. Hit on the leg side in front of square but its not got enough power. The fielder at cow corner races in, composes himself and holds on to a relatively easy catch. Azam's watch comes to an end. That was in the air for a long time 76/2
    14.2 is that out? yes it is. Neither the bowler nor the keeper seem to be in a celebratory mood. The ball was short just outside off stump and the back-foot defence from Mohammed does not connect, finds the outside edge of his straight bat and goes to the keeper at a comfortable height. A shorter-length ball than his usual spot 83/3
    16.4 full on middle stump and Taylor looks for a big shot. The pressure was building and he looked for his release shot. Looked like he connected the ball well but he hits it into the wind to the leg side. Enough hang time on the ball and the sweeper fielder on the leg side takes the catch. The fielder did well there, he was looking straight into the sun 95/4
    19.3 what an incredible catch! short on middle stump and the pull shot is not connected well at all. He cleared the front leg but finds the bat's bottom edge, Jon Carter in the deep covered a lot of ground before diving forward. The ball was dipping but he held onto it. Another dot, this is like gold dust 122/6
    19.5 panic and miscommunication galore here. short outside off stump and he misses the drive, Rashid Khan - the non-striker - runs through for byes but Tanvir was in his crease ball watching. Both batsmen were at the strikers end and Cottrell is aware at the non strikers end. Flicks the bails and that's a gone-r 122/7

    4.4 there's the two in the Powerplay the Amazon Warriors needed. A short, slower ball on off and middle. Gayle, despite it being a slower ball, is rushed into a pull. It skews off the outside half, or the bat handle turned in his hand, but the ball goes straight up and lands in midwicket's hands. Emrit's pumped, but it's only a chance. 26/2
    1.1 that's full, it's straight, it's out. Was it just outside the line? Not too quick, but it's the new ball so it just skids on with the arm and strikes Lewis in front of off. It looked pretty close, and the umpire goes with the bowler. That's just what the Warriors needed. 2/1
    6.1 edged and gone. Hafeez wants one down to third man, but plays down the wrong line. Inside the line ever so slightly and these are massive margins in professional sport. Gets a thin outside edge to the keeper. Emrit has two wickets in seven balls without allowing a run. Grand. 35/3

    10.4 good length outside off stump, slightly spinning after hitting the deck. Some extra bounce for the bowler too and the ball was too close for the cut. King misses it as the ball goes underneath his bat and clips the bail from top of off stump. A wicket right after the break. Patriots in big trouble 57/5
    8.6 run-out of the next ball. Two mistakes from King in two balls. Full outside off, pushed away to cover, Thomas sets off for one, but is sent back far too late. Rashid sprints to the ball, picks up and hits the stumps down at the batsman's end. Thomas' dive can't save him. This getting interesting 50/4

    16.3 shouts of 'catch it!' and the experienced Tanvir strikes. The danger man is gone and Amazon Warriors are still in it. Short on middle stump and the ball was rising this time. The batsman was not positioned well for the hoick on the leg side. Instead plops up into the air on the off side, where the mid off fielder comes a few steps forward and swallows that ball. A soft dismissal caused by the turning of Brathwaite's bat, induced by the slower delivery 106/6
