    11.3 Guptill is gone, that's brillian fom Cottoy, alters the length as he tosses it up around the middle stump and induces Guptill on the front foot, he was not quite to the pitch of the delivery as he tries to drive and a sharp turn beaten him altogether. He drags his foot out in the process and keeper does the rest 98/4
    2.3 Garbriel strikes, pitches that around middle stump, that's bounce touch extra from back of a length. Lewis was early to pounce onto it as he clears the front leg and tries to play it on the leg side, it slants away and catches the outside edge and settles in the hands of second slip, he is outdone by the pace and movement. 12/1
    7.4 comes round the wicket, pitches it down the leg, flat and on a length. Dowrich skips down the track and goes for a hoick, connects it well but not got the required distance as it settles into the hands of Edwards at deepish midwicket, the little cameo comes to an end. 66/2
    9.1 Samuels goes, two big wickets for McCullum in consecutive overs. That's shortish on the leg as he swivels and pulls it off the back foot, he was a bit early onto it as he doesn't connect it properly, it went flat towards the deepish backward of square leg where Roach gets down and takes a good low catch. 78/3
    12.1 and Afridi's poor run continues, length delivery around the middle as he goes for a slog intending to the clear the long-on, he definitely not connect that well as it skies infront of the fielder who runs forward and holds it 100/5
    17.3 that's the fourth for the night for McCullum, pitches it short on the leg as Peters swivels and pulls that off the back foot, went high towards wide of deep backward square, Roach runs to his right and holds that, he almost over ran but able to manage it finally 145/7
    15.4 this is excellent, saw Thomas dancing down the track and McCullum shortens the length around middle stump, it turns in sharply and Thomas unable to reach to the pitch of it, through the gates and knocks the middle stump, this is really good stuff from McCullum 136/6
    19.4 that's a fuller in length and straight into the block-hole, as said you-miss-i-hit kinda delivery, Brathwaite stays on the crease and goes for a slog by clearing the front leg, it goes through his blade and knocks the middle stump, you will love that as fast bowler! 163/8

    12.4 Warrican gets the big wicket of Fletcher, he was pushing the deliveries quite wide, once again this was tossed up way outside off. Fletcher moves across to off and goes for a big heave, ends up skying down towards long-on where Reifer holds it 95/4
    4.3 slower length delivery on the middle stump, he does not read the lack of pace and ends up skying that slog towards the mid-on, the substitute Athanaze places underneath it and holds a comfortable catch 49/1
    7.2 holes out at the deep, that's once again shortish around the middle and turns away with good bounce. KP been done by the extra bit of bounce, punches it straight towards the long-off where Brathwaite accepts the dolly with comfort 69/2
    9 that's a big wicket, the change of bowling worked. Brathwaite's shortish stuff paid off for him and the side, this time a bit of width offered outside off, Taylor onto his back foot and cuts it hard but straight into the hands of backward point where Samuels took a sharp catch moving to his left. Brathwaite with his chicken celebration, Rosco can't believe it 76/3
    16.3 and another wicket, this is absolute rubbish, tossed up delivery on middle and leg, Cottoy flicks it straight towards short midwicket. Cottoy off for a quick single but David refuses and finally agreed, Samuels throws it to the strikers' end and Dowrich removes the bail in a flash, he was way short. 119/7
    13.4 superb delivery, that's quite quicker and the wrong'un, gets good amount of bounce as this spins back in from back of a length, gets an inside edge onto it and ends up dragging back onto the stumps 101/5
    15.3 Brathwaite read it to the perfection, saw McCullum shuffling across to off side, he bowls that full on the leg from wide of the crease, McCullum tries for a tickle but misses it completely which kisses the leg stump, Brathwaite gets down and slides in joy! 116/6
    19.3 that's the ninth wicket, Brathwaite gets the man finally, yorker on the middle stump as he backs away to the leg and tries to slice that way, that's touch quicker than the previous one and angled in, not able to connect it and knocks the stumps 142/9
    19 comes round the wicket, searches for the yorker but ends up with a full toss way outside off. Roach reaches for it and tries to squeeze it but only able hit it flat into the hands of backward point where Samuels holds it 132/8

  • All-round Patriots move up to second

    Solid top-order knocks from Martin Guptill and Shane Dowrich, a late blitz from Raymon Reifer, and a three-wicket haul from Carlos Brathwaite were the cornerstones behind St Kitts and Nevis Patriots' 26-run win against St Lucia Zouks at Warner Park
