    0.5 he survived a catch two balls earlier, but can't this time as he's just hit a low, dipping full toss straight to cover. McClenaghan cleverly bowled this a touch wide, forcing Lynn to reach out. He only managed to spoon this straight to the Afghanistan leggie Qais Ahmed 8/1
    5.6 the middle stump has been knocked back! He dropped him earlier in the day at midwicket, now redeems himself. Brings out the El Dorado celebration as well. Excellent slower delivery bowled at length, Narine looks to hoick across the line, swings through too early even as the ball doesn't arrive. Hears the sound of timber. His existence tonight was a charmed one, but a very short one. 48/2

    15.5 walks across to play the pick up shot but is beaten on the swing, the middle and leg stump take a walk. So long as he was playing proper cricketing shots, Munro was in-charge. The moment he started to improvise and look for the unorthodox, the timing and ball-striking seems to have fallen off. Superb start to the tournament for him though. 140/5
    9.5 goes for a big hoick, the stumps are rattled and Pollard is pleased as punch. Slower and fuller delivery angling in, McCullum goes for a mow to the leg side, swings through too early and hears the rattle he really doesn't want to. 88/3
    10.3 this has been punched straight to cover. This is a slower length ball from Kesrick, just stops on Darren who was already through with the drive. Checked his stroke and spooned a simple catch to the skipper. He won't miss those. The jigs come out, Kesrick is having a good night after the early reprieve of Narine. 89/4

    18.5 excellent bouncer angling away, Bravo fetches the pull from outside off, there's no timing whatsoever. More height on this, giving Kesrick Williams enough time to run back from midwicket and take this. Not easy doing that but he made it look easy. 177/6

    2.5 if you can't take catches off my bowling, I'll get you with my own effort, he seems to be saying. Completely foxes Fletcher with this knuckleball that lands on length and completely deceives Fletcher, who is beaten on the swing and sees his off stump flattened. Kiss your crest and do the celebratory run now, son. Come on, given Imran Tahir a run for his money. He deserves this. 35/1
    4.3 he's gone! Warner looks to go square on the leg side with a short-arm jab but is beaten on the skid of this delivery. May have kept a touch low as well, beat the inside edge to hit the stumps. Not short enough to play the stroke, misread the length completely. 39/2
    6.1 what a start! This is a magnificent delivery, a googly which the batsman doesn't read and plonks forward, only for the ball to fizz back in to beat the inside edge and smash into the stumps. 47/4
    5.2 the short ball gets big on him and he's top-edged this pull straight to midwicket. Dwayne Bravo can be deceptive with his pace. 43/3
    6.4 another wicket and this time it's Chapman. What a start to his CPL career. This one's a superbly tossed-up leg break which he looks to drive but ends up spooning this straight to cover. 50/5
    14.3 what does he do next ball after refusing a single? Wallop this full toss straight to Searles at long-off. Oh, gosh. Pollard's last hope was staying right till the end to score as many and reduce the margin of defeat, not happening tonight. 81/8
    7.5 what was Sammy trying to do? This is a sharp offbreak, not all that short for him to pull. The ball fizzes back in to cramp him for room and beat him to strike the pad right in front of middle. If that wasn't out, nothing would ever be. St Lucia Stars continue to disintegrate. 53/6
    12.3 loses his timing in attempt of this slog sweep, wanted to go midwicket but toe-ends this towards long-on where Ali Khan takes a dolly. Once again Fawad beats him in flight and dip. Not there for the slog whatsoever. 77/7
    17.3 has he tickled this to the keeper? The umpire has a long, hard look. Thinks, overthinks and raises the finger long after Gabriel decided his throat was hurting and he needed to stop appealing. Anyway, that brings an end to a no-contest that was extremely intense for the first half. After David Warner's dismissal, it all went downhill. Trinbago Knight Riders have begun with a resounding win. 95/10
    16.4 the dipping slower ball has done the trick. McClenaghan had no clue, looked to sweep this off a length, deceived completely as the ball beats the swing, slides underneath the bat to crash into the stumps. 91/9
