16.2

van der Wath to Gayle, OUT, Gayle is gone after a fast and furious knock. Short in length, on the middle stump line, Gayle, again took out the front leg outside the line and tried a swipe across the line but got an top edge to Boucher. What a whirlwind and violent knock this has been. Take a bow

van der Wath to Chanderpaul, 1 run, short in length, at the body, lapped around the corner

16.4

van der Wath to DR Smith, 1 run, The sixer man starts off with a nudge to midwicket for a single. It was an attempted yorker- Smith has got out many a time to the yorker- dabbed to the on side

16.5

van der Wath to Chanderpaul, 1 run, Chanders gives the strike back to Dwayne with a drive to cover

16.6

West Indies 181/3   JJ van der Wath 3-0-21-1
18.1

van der Wath to Chanderpaul, FOUR, Outside edge. Lovely lemon cut or French cut as you please. Full and homing in on the off stump, Chanderpaul tries to slice it through point. Instead the ball runs to third man boundary

18.2

van der Wath to Chanderpaul, OUT, Another one goes down. The wickets are suddenly falling in a heap here as West Indies try to hit every ball for a six. Short in length, in the zone outside off, Chanderpaul tries to upper cut it over point but ends up nicking it to Boucher.

S Chanderpaul c †Boucher b van der Wath 11 (21m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 110.00

van der Wath to Ramdin, no run, short and rising, over the off stump, Ramdin backs away to the leg side and fails to connect with his upper cut

18.4

van der Wath to Ramdin, FOUR, Connects with his upper cut this time. A slight shuffle takes him outside leg stump just before the delivery and he carves a short-of-length delivery over point

18.5

van der Wath to Ramdin, 1 run, fuller this time, on the stumps, driven to long-on

18.6

van der Wath to Sarwan, 3 runs, backs to the leg side even as he charges out and slices a yorker through backward point. One frenetic over left in this innings.
