1.2

Abdur Razzak to Chanderpaul, FOUR, full and outside off, Chanderpaul bends his back knee and attempts a square drive but gets a thick edge through to the third man boundary

West Indies 5/1   S Chanderpaul 4* (4b 1x4)   Abdur Razzak 0.2-0-5-0

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

West Indies 23/1   DS Smith 7* (7b 1x4)   Mashrafe Mortaza 0.2-0-7-0

5.1

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.

West Indies 33/1   DS Smith 17* (18b 3x4)   Mashrafe Mortaza 1.4-0-16-0

7.6

Farhad Reza to DS Smith, FOUR, brings up the fifty with a fierce pull shot. Slightly short and he was quick to pounce on that.

West Indies 53/1   DS Smith 28* (25b 4x4)   Farhad Reza 1-0-15-0

10.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Chanderpaul, FOUR, Dropped by Aftab Ahmed at deep midwicket. Flighted delivery, on the off stump, slog-swept straight to Aftab who makes a mess of it. Palms facing towards the sky, the ball went in and out. What's more runs over the boundary ropes

10.5

Shakib Al Hasan to DS Smith, FOUR, short in length, outside the off stump, cut through backward point. He loves that shot. He stays on that back foot and jumps at a half-an-opportunity to cut

11.1

Abdur Razzak to Chanderpaul, FOUR, short again, outside the off stump and Chanderpaul doesn't let the opportunity go; rocks back to cut it past point. Easy pickings.

18.6
