View dismissal MN van Wyk c †Ramdin b Cottrell 18 31 24 4 0 75.00
6.2 81.8 mph, and another! Flying Ramdin again. Well, well. It wasn't a great delivery, short and outside off, van Wyk chases it but the shot is neither a drive or a cut and the edge is grabbed one-handed by Ramdin diving in front of first slip. He had more time to see that catch, as the ball was shorter, but it was still another smart grab 32/3
View dismissal RR Rossouw c Sammy b Cottrell 4 10 3 1 0 133.33
2.2 87.7 mph, what a comeback and what a catch! That was the perfect delivery. Full outside off, hint of swing away from the left hander who pushed away from his body. The edge was dying as it headed towards first slip, but Sammy saw it and dived across full length to hold a screamer. Cottrell brings out his salute. 18/1
View dismissal F du Plessis c †Ramdin b Holder 4 17 11 1 0 36.36
5.6 80.3 mph, oh boy, what a catch! Another ripper. Du Plessis edges a full delivery, seemed to be aiming leg side, and for a moment Ramdin appears a little wrong-footed but then flings himself low to his right, with one glove, and snaffles the catch. Terrific reflexes. 32/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers* c †Ramdin b Russell 19 38 25 3 0 76.00
14.4 88.0 mph, got him! Huge wicket! A good delivery from Russell, back of a length and it just nips back a touch, too, as it finds de Villiers' inside edge. He was well across his crease by the time he played that. Neat catch from Ramdin 76/4
DA Miller not out 130 191 133 11 3 97.74
View dismissal JP Duminy c & b Sammy 43 88 68 3 0 63.23
36.4 70.0 mph, drops the length back slightly, slower ball, Duminy through with the shot too soon and chips it back to the bowler! A smart catch reaching out with the right hand and Sammy breaks the partnership. Nice piece of bowling, Duminy deceived, trying to work down the ground and just tapped it back at shoulder height to the bowler 166/5
View dismissal F Behardien b Holder 12 26 16 0 0 75.00
42.1 78.9 mph, good length on off stump, Berhardien plays all around it and loses his off stump! It nipped back a little bit but Berhardien was rooted in the crease sort of trying to run it down to third man but missed it by an awful long way and off stump was flattened. Pretty poor innings from Berhardien really 196/6
View dismissal WD Parnell b Holder 12 34 17 0 0 70.58
49.2 80.6 mph, yorker, Parnell trying to flick leg side missed and is bowled! Very nice delivery from Holder, right on line and Parnell played right across it out went middle stump. Again just try and get something on that to get Miller back on strike? Not great cricket from Parnell 259/7
View dismissal AM Phangiso c Johnson b Holder 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
49.3 76.9 mph, steps right across the stumps and goes to scoop over the leg side but finds short long leg! Another wicket falls. Length ball, a cutter, a foot outside off, Phangiso took a big strike to his right and tried to clear the leg side infield but it went straight to the fielder 259/8

View dismissal DR Smith b Morkel 0 3 3 0 0 0.00
0.3 84.0 mph, that's out! It wasn't a contest. Touch fuller, 141kph, pitching around middle, straightens on Smith to beat the outside edge and smashes into middle stump. That is a comprehensive clean-up job. Smith playing an aggressive whip across the line, so didn't give himself the best chance but still a cracking delivery 0/1
View dismissal CH Gayle c Behardien b Duminy 10 28 19 1 0 52.63
6.1 51.3 mph, and it's worked first ball! What a call from de Villiers. Pretty shocking stroke, mind. It's floated up outside off, smartly tempting Gayle, he comes forward to drive but is reaching for the ball and just ends up presenting a catch to cover, neat catch above the head 12/2
View dismissal LR Johnson run out (de Villiers/†van Wyk) 18 55 40 2 1 45.00
13.5 from Phangiso, oh dear, a mix-up costs West Indies. Pushed into the off side off the back foot, Johnson came down for the run but was sent back by Samuels. The throw from cover was swift - from de Villiers - and Johnson's dive wasn't enough. A word, too, for van Wyk who took the ball low by the stumps expertly. 41/3
View dismissal MN Samuels b Behardien 68 146 93 5 2 73.11
39.2 68.8 mph, he's done it! Much debate about Behardien's position in the side. Well, he may just have won the match here. A full delivery, nips back a touch and there was a massive gap with Samuels' feet planted on leg stump. Knocks back the leg pole 189/7
View dismissal D Ramdin lbw b Behardien 3 9 5 0 0 60.00
15.5 72.3 mph, full, straight, keeps a little low and Ramdin plumb in front! Nipped back a little, Ramdin back on his stumps and the umpire gave it out before the bowler could turn around. Stone dead, back pad, right in front of middle. Poor judgement from Ramdin, it skidded through and that's a plumb as you'll get 48/4
View dismissal JL Carter run out (Miller/Duminy) 5 22 13 1 0 38.46
20.5 Duminy to Samuels, played forward into the off side, who wants a single here? Only one of them! The batsmen are at the same end and Carter is run out by a pitch length. That is a shambles. Samuels drove firmly towards mid-off and took three steps down the track, Carter jogged down for the single but Samuels decided it wasn't on so stopped running, selling his partner down the river and there was an easy run out at the bowler's end 73/5
View dismissal DJG Sammy c de Villiers b Parnell 51 66 52 5 2 98.07
36.1 81.4 mph, the breakthrough, but only just! Sammy carves a full delivery high into the off side, de Villiers runs back from cover, the ball bobbled and he showed brilliant awareness to keep his eyes on it and grasp it as it fell by his chest 166/6
AD Russell not out 64 66 40 5 5 160.00
View dismissal JO Holder* c Miller b Duminy 13 18 12 2 0 108.33
42.6 57.8 mph, low full toss, tried to clip it leg side but miscues it a little, taken by midwicket! A fantastic leaping catch with one hand above David Miller's head, a great leap, holds on really well. That should have gone into the stands but Holder was tentative, miscued the leg side flick and couldn't get it over midwicket's head 218/8
View dismissal CR Brathwaite run out (de Villiers/†van Wyk) 11 23 14 0 1 78.57
47.1 from Phangiso, middle and leg line, dabbed up on the leg side, no single there, Brathwaite sent back but de Villiers is there with the throw and Brathwaite is a long way out! No need for the third umpire. Brathwaite trying to get Russell back on strike but he's too keen and pays the price, nice fielding from de Villiers at midwicket to make up for the dropped catch 239/9
