3.3 that's gone straight up, and the wicketkeeper takes it somewhere near cover point. Top work from Devon Thomas. Calls for the catch the moment Charles' slog malfunctions and results in a leading edge. Sends everyone back with a spread of his arms, gets under it well and takes it diving to his right 32/1
    11.6 bowls him with a yorker! Nabi takes out the danger man two balls short of a fifty and exults fittingly. What a ball. Comes out of nowhere. Fletcher is simply not ready to play a spinner hitting the blockhole 93/4
    5.5 and that's that. He's faced six balls. He's given catching opportunities on four of them and this time Brathwaite takes the catch at mid-off 49/2
    9.6 caught and bowled off a full toss and Hafeez is overjoyed. He's kept the runs down with his flat darts, and now he dismisses a two-time World T20 champion in the softest of ways. Samuels comes down the track for a flick, plays it too early and watches the ball settle into the bowler's hands 85/3
    15.2 caught at long-on! Watson goes for the slog sweep to a length ball, but he mistimes it. Gets a bit of a top edge that settles in the hands of Carter. 112/6
    14.1 bowls him! Beautiful piece of deception. He starts it by bowling short - which is why Sammy sets up for the pull - but there is no pace on the ball. It's a googly as well. The Stars captain is through with his shot and then the ball has a free path to middle stump 106/5
    17.3 he's stumped! Beautiful work from the combination of Nabi and Thomas. One brings the batsman out of his crease and beats him on the inside edge, the other collects the ball cleanly and breaks the stumps 134/7
    not out
    18.1 full, straight, bowled. McClenaghan backs away, trying to flick, fails spectacularly 139/8
