    0.5 Smith cannot resist himself and he's paid the price for it. It's full on middle stump and he gets down on one knee to pull that towards cow corner. It's in the air! Darren Bravo comes a few feet forward from deep mid wicket and pockets that with ease. Smith has to go. But the game's tone is set. 11/1
    11.6 goes for a slog from outside off and finds the top-edge of his bat.Loopy full ball from Narine, takes it away from the batsman and forces the error. The ball lobs in the air and goes behind the stumps where short third man runs to his left and settles under it 90/3
    1.5 good length on middle stump, and the Parnell experimentation at the top has not worked. Looks to drive that on the up but the ball hit's the sticker-area of the bat. The ball lobs into the air and B Mac is a monster at mid wicket. Runs to his right and takes a simple catch 19/2
    15.3 fuller ball, tries to launch it over the in-field but does not manage to middle it. It was too full and he could not get underneath that. Ends up popping a catch to the mid-off region where Dwayne Bravo runs to his right and snaffles it around the edge of the circle 102/4
    19.6 cleaned him up. And look at Bravo take off in celebration. Charge forward with his arms spread out. He has got his countryman with the final ball of the innings.Excellent delivery, yorker, bang on off and Pollard is swinging wildly looking for a heave, fails to put bat to ball which takes out the stumps 152/9
    16.6 short and wide, this is some tripe from Cooper and he's lucky to get a wicket here. Pooran slashes hard again and this time finds sweeper cover as the ball settles into his hands. Went hard at it so the ball stayed in the air throughout 123/5
    17.4 yorker on off, Pollard squeezes it out to short third man with an open bat face and they take off for a single. Oh, but hang on! There is a direct hit at the non-striker's end and Barnwell is short of his ground 125/6
    19.2 oh, dear, Springer! He has no clue after swinging and missing and just strolls out of the crease. Another excellent delivery from Bravo. Slower ball, banged in short and beats the hook with the lack of pace. Springer isn't in great balance as he swings for the pull and just sets about looking for a run even as the keeper collects it. The keeper runs forward and takes out the bails 140/7
    19.5 lofts it again but this time it's miscued and he has picked out long-on. Bravo drags the length back and Hosein tries to pull but ends up dragging it down to long-on and sends it straight down the throat of the fielder there 152/8

    0.4 full on off stump and that's a beauty! Hurries the batsman and McCullum plays down the middle-stump line. Crashes into off stump and Parnell is delighted. Captain Pollard salutes his bowler. A gem of a delivery 4/1
    18.1 what is going on here? Narine this time has perished trying to play an overambitious shot. Eight off 12 needed and you have to wonder what the need was to do that. Full toss outside off and Narine slashes too hard at it, misses the timing and extra cover runs to his right to take it 145/7
    3.3 full on middle, Munro tries to send that into the ocean. Settles down on one knee and slogs that straight over the bowler's head. Does not find the distance and it's taken at long on. Dwayne Smith takes the catch from above his head. He was just one foot in front of the boundary ropes there. The bat's face closed just at the last second, it went straighter than he planned 28/2
    9.5 slower ball, good length just outside off, Bravo fishes outside his line and is tentative whether to defend or punch. Takes the slighest of edges from the bat's outside edge. The keeper holds on to it. A catch is taken, finally 75/3
    10.1 tries to heave one from way outside off and picks out long-on. Had to reach out for it and didn't really move his feet. Drags it off the splice of the bat and offers a simple catch to Shoaib Malik 76/4
    16.5 takes out the off-stump. Bravo plays across the line and pays the price. Was pretty needless, really, given the equation.Length ball, cuts back in sharply off the seam and beats the closing face of the bat to take out the top of off 139/5
    17.4 needlessly steps down the track and Parnell drags the length back. Ends up coming on to him at an awkward height and he tries to awkwardly tries to pull, gets a bottom edge to the stumps. Knight Riders are needlessly making this harder for themselves 141/6
    18.6 and there goes another one. Harmless full toss and Scantlebury-Searles heaves it. But off all the spaces in the leg side field he could have played that through, he has played that straight into the hands of straightish midwicket. Catching practice for the fielder 151/8
