3.1

Mashrafe Mortaza to DS Smith, 1 wide, well outside the off stump and its a wide.

3.1

Mashrafe Mortaza to DS Smith, 1 wide, another one. Poor start by Mortaza. West Indies sent down 23 wides the other night. Hope Mortaza is not eyeing that unwanted record

3.1

Mashrafe Mortaza to DS Smith, 1 wide, Well ... well ... well what have we got here. An erratic Mortaza. Another one well outside off stump

3.1

Mashrafe Mortaza to DS Smith, no run, Gets it this correct this time. On the off stump line, pushed to point

3.2

Mashrafe Mortaza to DS Smith, FOUR, short and outside the off stump, it help up a touch and so, Smith instead of cutting it square on the off side, goes for a pull shot through wide midwicket

3.3

Mashrafe Mortaza to DS Smith, 1 run, slashed over the slips. Climbs up from a length, around the off stump, Smith flashes at it and it flies over the slip, Rasel comes across from his third man position to make a fine stop

3.4

Mashrafe Mortaza to Chanderpaul, no run, full and in the temptation zone outside off stump, Chanderpaul thinks about playing a drive but withdraws his bat at the last minute

3.5

Mashrafe Mortaza to Chanderpaul, no run, length delivery, angling away from Chanderpaul who is cramped up, going for a cut and the ball rolls towards backward point

3.6

Mashrafe Mortaza to Chanderpaul, no run, in the zone outside off, angling away, Chanderpaul lets Rahim come into play

West Indies 24/1   Mashrafe Mortaza 1-0-8-0

5.1

Mashrafe Mortaza to DS Smith, FOUR, Slapped away. Short and outside off, Smith rocks back to crash it past point.

5.2

Mashrafe Mortaza to DS Smith, no run, Another short delivery, another cracking cut but Farhad Reza, at backward point, moves smartly to his left to make a diving stop.

5.3

Mashrafe Mortaza to DS Smith, no run, Climbs up from a length, close to the off stump, Smith shapes to cut but is beaten by the extra bounce.

5.4

Mashrafe Mortaza to DS Smith, FOUR, Short again - Mortaza has bowled poorly today, and Smith pulls it easily through midwicket. West Indies are beginning to get a move on, courtesy Smith and Mortaza.

5.5

Mashrafe Mortaza to DS Smith, no run, Hmm... another short delivery - Ashraful must be getting an headache - cut fiercely but again Farhad Reza comes in the way.

5.6

Mashrafe Mortaza to DS Smith, no run, a tad fuller, on a length, outside off stump, Smith is beaten on the cut shot. Not the length for that shot.

West Indies 33/1   Mashrafe Mortaza 2-0-16-0
