West Indies 210/3   S Chanderpaul 38* (104b 1x4)

64.1

Herath to Chanderpaul, no run, Chanders plays what seems like a suicidal reverse sweep, is given out lbw and immediately refers it. Here's what happened: That was a regulation left arm spinner from outside off, coming in with the spin. He went for the reverse sweep and did not make contact with bat. It hit the pads in front of middle and off. But something happened just before it hit his pads. It seemed to have hit the end of his fore-arm guard. Or was it the glove? If it was the former, that should be out. If latter, then it is a bat first, pad second situation. From the replay it clearly hit the arm guard. A closer look reveals it hit the gloves first. Can't be lbw after that. The decision is reversed.

Herath to Chanderpaul, no run, comes forward and pushes out to mid off

Mendis to Chanderpaul, OUT, Super catch from that wonderful slip fielder Mahela Jayawardene. It was a lovely googly that turned and jumped ...

And he roars. He had dropped a simpler chance offered by Bravo yesterday. Redemption time.
