41.5

Fernando to DM Bravo, FOUR, lovely shot. Darren Bravo cover-drives, and no, not with the flourish of Lara, but with the more conventional flow.

West Indies 142/2   DM Bravo 68* (116b 10x4)

43.1

Fernando to DM Bravo, OUT, given out lbw and Darren asks for a referral immediately. This could be interesting. Dilhara pitched it up and landed it just in line with leg stump and it straightened. You could see middle and off as Darren played around it and it thudded into his pads. Oxenford's finger went up in a flash, but Darren reckoned it was going down. Replays say he was wrong. That was taking out leg. West Indies have lost Darren Bravo, and with him, a referral
