Fernando to DM Bravo, no run, shifts to the line outside off and Darren leaves

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. It was over-pitched outside off and he leaned out to caress it. The body momentum was going into the shot, in perfect harmony with the bat-swing. All is well in the world when such a lovely cover drive is played.

41.6

Fernando to DM Bravo, no run, slower off cutter nipping away from outside off this time and Darren lets it go

West Indies 142/2   CRD Fernando 11-1-56-0

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

DM Bravo lbw b Fernando 68 (195m 117b 10x4 0x6) SR: 58.11

43.2

43.5

43.6

Fernando to Nash, no run, bangs in a bouncer on leg stump, short enough for Nash to duck under.

West Indies 142/3   CRD Fernando 12-2-56-1

45.1

Fernando to Nash, no run, Dilhara offers Nash width outside off, but he cannot capitalise to open his account. Mis-times the cut straight to point

45.2

Fernando to Nash, FOUR, better ball than the previous one, but a far better shot from Nash who crunches out the cut despite not having much room to work with. Keeps it fine of point and it flies away to the boundary.

45.3

Fernando to Nash, 1 run, looking for the swing again, full and moving in towards leg stump, Nash manages to squeeze it through midwicket for runs

45.4

Fernando to Chanderpaul, no run, away movement this time, 134 kph, on a McGrathesque length outside off and nipping away nicely. Chanders thinks of playing but decides to leave.

47.1

Fernando to Nash, no run, on middle and leg line from Dilhara, Nash gets inside the line and looks to work it to the leg side.

47.3

Fernando to Nash, FOUR, nicely done, Nash capitalises on a leg stump offering, working the wrists smartly to ensure the glance went fine enough to beat fine leg.

47.4

Fernando to Nash, no run, 135 kph, full and jagging in from off stump menacingly, Nash gets across, spots the movement and adjusts in time to work it to midwicket. Good delivery

47.5

Fernando to Nash, 2 runs, another authoritative punch from Nash, not looking to smash the ball, but just coaxing an over-pitched ball on off stump down the ground. Couple more to the score

47.6

Fernando to Nash, no run, good stuff this from Fernando, gets away shape this time from middle and off, Nash guides it with an open face to backward point.

49.2

49.3

Fernando to Chanderpaul, no run, easier leave this time for Chanders as it nips away from wide of off stump. Arms are shouldered.

49.5

Fernando to Chanderpaul, 2 runs, this one's too straight, Chanders gets inside the line smartly and deflects it through square leg for one

49.6

Fernando to Chanderpaul, no run, "Yes, no, may be, shall we? No way? Ok." Chanders pokes it out to cover point, takes off for a single, Nash is in two minds, Chanders hesitates, then eventually decides to turn back. No harm done.
